Massage has a profound positive effect on health by maximising the body’s potential for regeneration and recovery. It can promote a feeling of wellbeing – calms and soothes – and can also have a stimulating, refreshing and invigorating effect.
Deep tissue massage is one of the most popular ways to help your body relax and recuperate, whether as treatment following physical training or as a form of relaxation. With a focus on the deeper muscle tissue layers, this form of massage is designed to release tension in the body using a variety of slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the affected areas. At Central Health Physiotherapy, our highly-qualified experienced therapists are trained to offer deep tissue massage for a wide range of complaints, helping to relieve muscle tension and increase blood circulation to promote healing of the key spots.
If you have been training hard for a sporting event, you may find yourself with some aches and strains. Not only is this likely to affect your performance, it may also grow worse over time. Sports massage helps to ease these complaints by relaxing muscles and improving circulation.
Henry specialises in deep tissue massage for muscles that are tired from over-use.
Henry was a professional ballet dancer for twelve years, finishing his career at the prestigious Royal Ballet company in London’s Covent Garden. This led him to a deep understanding of the human body and particularly the effects of hard physical training.
After his fair share of injuries and the resulting physiotherapy and many hours of massage Henry felt he had an ideal career to step into after dance. After graduating with distinction in holistic and deep tissue massage therapy from ITEC Henry now divides his time between the Royal Ballet School where he is on the medical staff as their massage therapist and our Chancery Lane clinic.
