Massage at Kube Medical
We offer a range of massage treatments at our luxury therapy rooms in Swindon which includes:
Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage, Relaxation Massage, Pregnancy Massage, and Swedish Massage.
Each massage type is detailed below, but each and every massage you have with us will be tailored to your specific needs. Your therapist will adjust their pressure and technique depending on your requirements and requests. For example, should you book a Swedish Massage, but your therapist detects some knots in your shoulders, they will then include some deep tissue treatment (to release the muscle knots) thereby combining the benefits of the deep relaxation resulting from your Swedish massage with the therapeutic effects of the deep tissue massage.
Your massage practitioner will be a qualified regulated Chiropractor or Osteopath. Our experienced therapists have trained in massage and have a detailed understanding of how the body works and what your body needs.
Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage
This is a firm pressure massage to reduce chronic muscle tension. It can be used to help a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, muscle strains and headaches. Techniques include long gliding and cross fibre strokes, kneading, and myofascial trigger point therapy.
Using medium pressure, this massage uses long gliding strokes, kneading and percussive tapping to increase blood flow to the muscles promoting relaxation and reducing tension.
Unsurprisingly, this massage is all about relaxing. Using slow, light strokes this massage is suitable for those looking for some time out and unwind from stress.
Prenatal and postnatal, your body goes through many changes. This often results in pain and dysfunction. Massage can help reduce pain, in particular low back pain, and aid sleep in pregnant women. The relaxing effect of your massage is beneficial to mum and baby.
Benefits of massage
There are many reasons why massage is beneficial for you. The body responds to massage:
Mechanically- as a result of pressure and movement as the soft tissues are manipulated.
By stimulating your Reflexes- in which the nerves respond to stimulation.
It can have an effect upon the Skeletal, Muscular, Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, Nervous, Digestive, Respiratory or Urinary Systems.
This means massage:
Stimulates the Nervous system to reduce pain by release of endorphins (happy hormones) and promote relaxation
Increases blood circulation to your muscles
Breaks down scar tissue from old injuries and overuse
Reduces stress and anxiety
Increase lymphatic drainage aiding the removal of waste products
Improves digestion and strengthens your immune system
What to expect:
Upon arrival for your first appointment your massage therapist will ask you some medical questions to ensure it is safe for you to have massage and ask you if you have any preferences for your Massage e.g. any areas that feel sore or tight.
For your massage you may be asked to remove some of your clothing, however if you don’t feel comfortable, gowns are available or we can work through your clothes.
Massage sessions are available for 30 minutes or an hour.
