Massage is one of the oldest known therapies, originating in China, India and Egypt thought to date as far back as 3000BC. These ancient civilisations understood the health benefits of physical therapy – the benefits of massage.

Here at Theale Wellbeing Centre we have a wide variety of massage therapists. These include:
The benefits that sports massage especially for athletes on the body are immense. Massaging will stretch and manipulate muscles and this will increase nutrients and blood flow to the area, whilst efficiently removing waste and lactic acid from the muscles. Also, any postural imbalances due to tight or short muscles will be addressed using massage.
Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure Massage)
Shiatsu is a dynamic hands-on healing system, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch, pressure and gentle stretching techniques to balance the body’s energy system, our emotions and the functions of our internal organs.

Reflexology is a Complementary Therapy that works on the feet allowing the body to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of “imbalance”, and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance and encourage healing.
