Massage Therapy in Chessington
Some beauty salons in and around the Chessington area don't offer massage services, yet we do. This is due to our commitment to providing you with a variety of ways to de-stress and unwind; and there is surely no better way to reduce stress than massage therapy. Indeed, massage is recognised as one of the oldest methods of healing, with early references to the practice found in medical texts written more than 4000 years ago.
The benefits of massage are extensive and people in Chessington use our massage services for a number of reasons. Massage not only helps physically, but it also relaxes and soothes the mind. Conditions that benefit from this type of therapy include the following:
- Back Pain
- Joint Pain
- Neck and Shoulder pain
- Sports Injuries
- Headaches and Migraines
- Digestive Disorders
- Anxiety and Depression
During your massage, we use various techniques to manipulate the muscles and soft tissues of your body. Here are the two types of massage we offer at our Chessington beauty salon:
Swedish (or Classic) Massage
Swedish massage is the style most people associate with the practice. Our therapists use five styles of long, flowing strokes to perform the treatment. These massage movements warm the muscle tissue to release tension and remove muscle knots. We - like all the best beauty salons - believe that this age old practice is still one of the most effective ways to relax your entire body after a hard day's work in or around the Chessington area.
This form of massage uses highly concentrated plant oils, which are commonly known as essential oils. The purpose of aromatherapy massage is to alter a person's mood or cognitive function by manipulating their senses through both touch and smell.
Therapists must have relevant training with the essential oils. This is because these oils are absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin, the lungs and the olfactory system. For this reason, our therapists understand the properties of the oils and the ways in which they can affect the body to keep you safe and to enable you to get the most from the therapy.
