Massage is one of the oldest forms of healing. It is a practice that has been used as a traditional healing modality by many cultures throughout the world.
Nowadays a qualified Massage and Soft Tissue Therapist will have many specialised techniques that they will utilise in a session. However the number one aspect of it will always be the same “to enhance the health & wellbeing of their client”.
There are various types of massage; Relaxation Massage, Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue, NeuroMuscular Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Pre & Post Surgical Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Clinical Reasoning. A highly qualified Massage Therapist will have learnt all of these modalities and may specialise in one or two of these. Quite often they will incorporate aspects from each of these into an individualised session with their client.
In NZ the massage industry is unregulated, therefore it is important that you chose a Massage Therapist that is qualified and even better who is registered with Massage New Zealand (MNZ) www.massagenewzealand.org.nz.
At Strength + Soul we individualise every Massage session for the client. We are happy for you to give us a call or email through any questions you may have prior to your session.
