“I have been going to Vidatherapy since it opened. Over the years, I’ve had Aromatherapy, traditional and Sports massage, Reiki and Hot Stones. Whichever therapist I’ve had, all treatments have been comforting and wholly restorative.”  Suki Hubbard, 11/2012

Our massage treatments are administered through an initial consultation taking a medical history and then deciding on the best course of action for the benefit of the client.

Advanced Clinical Massage for muscular pain

The main cause of muscular pain can be from anxiety and tension. During periods of intense anxiety, your muscles tense up dramatically, especially in the shoulders, back, and neck. The more anxiety you experience, the more your tension may cause significant pain and discomfort. The most common cause of  muscle tension is usually caused from everyday activities such as sitting at a computer or bending over a desk for hours, having poor posture while watching TV or reading, sleeping in an uncomfortable position, or twisting and turning the neck in a jarring manner while exercising.

Specialist body work such as advanced clinical massage will help to free up knots and muscular tension, using techniques such as deep tissue and soft tissue release, focused trigger point therapy, acupressure and passive stretching. A treatment can help to release stress and strain in the muscles in order to alleviate pain leaving you feeling deeply relaxed in mind and body.
