MASSAGE THERAPY

OUR PRACTITIONERS WORK AS A TEAM WITH YOUR GOAL IN MIND

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy involves working with the body and like Osteopathy is designed to enhance function and aid recovery. Your practitioner may recommend Massage Therapy as part of your treatment here at The Point.

 

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissues, using various techniques that involve working on the body with pressure, targeting muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints or connective tissue.

An appointment normally lasts 60 minutes although treatments from 30 - 90 minutes can be offered according to the condition presented.

 

If you are treated here at The Point for Osteopathy, Nutrition or Personal Training, your Practitioners will all have access to your treatment plans, enabling them to work together.
