Cardea Massage Therapy has been set up and developed by recommendations from Chiropractors and sports and health institutions to help to meet the need for a high quality, reputable massage service in Somerset. I am fully qualified, insured by and an accredited member of the The Federation of Holistic Therapists.
I offer either a relaxing massage designed to relax your mind and body using traditional and original massage movements, or a therapeutic deep tissue massage to release tight muscles or knotted tissues. This is especially good for sports people to improve sports performance by allowing the muscles to work to their full potential. Massage also assists lymphatic drainage where extra help is needed.
I am 50 something and have been married for over 30 years and have 3 adult children. In my youth I was fortunate enough to be on the English Karate Association national squad where we were shown how to do deep tissue massage to relieve aching muscles after a tough training session. This started my interest in massage which I have been practising ever since. I am a fully qualified and insured massage therapist and I am currently studying for my qualification in sports massage to complement and certify my learning. I look forward to serving your needs whether it be relaxation, de stressing or muscular issues.

Swedish Massage (also called Traditional Massage)
This is a gentle, relaxing massage. It helps relax both body and mind, giving you a sense of wellbeing. It can relieve the general aches and pains caused from everyday life, leaving you completely relaxed and refreshed. The massage can be either full-body or customized to your needs, enabling me to concentrate on your particular problem areas.
Deep Tissue Massage
This is a firmer massage that focuses on the deep layers of muscle tissue. It works deep into the muscles and helps eliminate muscle aches, pains and fatigue, as well as boosting circulation to remove toxins. This massage relieves tension created by strained or contracted muscles and increases flexibility in joints, which aids your mobility and movement.
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (also called Trigger Point Therapy)
This type of massage applies concentrated finger pressure to “trigger points”, which are painful, irritated areas of muscles. The aim is to break cycles of spasm and pain. This massage relaxes the painful muscles, blood starts flowing normally and lactic acid build-up is reduced. You will feel some pain if we hit a trigger point so it is essential that we communicate throughout the therapeutic session.
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage that helps to mobilise and stretch muscles. It is used in the prevention of an injury as well as speeding up recovery on new, recurring and old injuries. It will also improve range of motion and muscle flexibility, resulting in improved power and performance in addition to shortening the recovery time between workouts.
