Body Active offers deep-tissue massage in its Cambridge clinic to alleviate aches and pains. Deep-tissue massage is a stronger form of Swedish massage, which is designed to rejuvenate tired muscles. It is an effective massage treatment which relieves problems such as neck ache, low back pain and aching limbs. Deep-tissue massage helps to ease pain and restore biomechanical function.
Remedial Massage Therapy
Remedial massage therapy is a specialised treatment which focuses on a specific outcome for you, the client. If you are having a particular problem such as pain in a particular area, remedial massage therapy will work to get you moving again by applying pressure to congested muscle, knots and trigger points. This can allow an accelerated recovery rate post-injury to get you back to an active lifestyle in Cambridge.
Therapeutic massage uses soothing techniques and deep-tissue massage to ease tension from your muscles. Therapeutic massage promotes good muscular health as muscles are stretched and eased away from the neighbouring tissues, which allows greater freedom of movement. Therapeutic massage is great for stress reduction, calming the mind & relaxing the body.

Pregnancy massage can help with back ache, neck ache, pregnancy insomnia and tired feet. Pregnancy massage can be done side-lying on a massage couch, or seated if preferred.
