Massage is one of the world’s oldest forms of healing, utilised by a number of ancient civilisations to promote healing and general wellbeing. It involves manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft tissues in order to help recover from various ailments and injuries as well as reducing stress, anxiety and general tension. At Centre 4 Health, we offer a number of different styles of massage to suit your specific needs.
This is the perfect treatment for anybody looking to treat themselves after a hard day’s work or in general need of some pampering. This luxurious style of massage utilises slow, rhythmic strokes in order to help calm a person’s nervous system and help them to let go of any unwanted tension.

For those after something a bit firmer, deep tissue massage utilises firm pressure to reach deeper levels of muscle and fascia. This is ideal for chronic aches and pains as it helps to break up ‘knots’ or overly tight bands of painful, rigid tissue. Whilst it may be painful at times, our therapist always listen to their clients to ensure the right level of pressure is being applied.
This form of massage is ideal for those with a specific injury or complaint as it looks at how each muscle is working in the context of the whole body and its actions. Through the use of assessment and a variety of techniques including trigger point therapy and myofascial release, this form of massage will get you moving and feeling better, whilst increasing your range and ease of motion.
A once-a-month maintenance massage is perfect for stopping the build-up of stress and tension, improving muscle function and health, and keeping you in good shape. This is ideal for those who have to spend hours sitting each day or performing repetitive manual labour. The perfect tune-up for those who want to stay on top of their health.
Our various massages can be combined to suit your needs so feel free to ask us for exactly what it is that you’re after!
