Massage

Massage has been available at Viney Hall Physiotherapy for several years and is useful in conjunction with physiotherapy or on its own.

Soft-tissue massage is often used by the physiotherapists as part of their treatment, in conjunction with joint mobilisation and other modalities. However, some people enjoy a massage alone, performed by a dedicated massage therapist.

Monica Jones is an experienced massage therapist with a regular client list as well as offering one-off sessions for de-stressing, relaxation or as a special treat! Vouchers are available and make excellent gifts.

What do I need to wear?
It doesn't really matter what you wear. Your massage therapist will ask you to remove your clothing, leaving the room whilst you do so. You will be provided with towels to preserve your modesty at all times.
I have had a massage before which was too hard/too soft. Will this happen again?
The massage will be performed just how you would like it. You are encouraged to discuss your requirements and must tell your therapist if you would like a firmer or more gentle pressure. Communication is the key to a successful treatment.
