Back, neck & Shoulder Massage


Do you live in Moulsecoomb, Ovingdean, Patcham or Portslade By Sea? You can enjoy our back, neck and shoulder massage. Loosely based on the Swedish massage, our massage is a shorter form of the full bodywork and it targets your upper body. Our massage therapists in Brighton use a light to medium touch akin to what you can get with craniosacral therapy or we can cater for a deeper pressure if you prefer. Most physicians will agree that this massage is perfect for Brighton and Hove residents who are experiencing a stiff neck, backache or pain in their upper body.

Other therapy options available for back, neck and shoulder pain include an Indian Head massage to relieve tension in your neck and head or a hot stone or bamboo massage to relax your tense muscles. We also offer aromatherapy and mediterranean candle massages which are designed to ease pain.

Our massage therapists are professionals who will pamper you and relieve your stress and tension.

Bamboo Massage Therapy


Ancient Chinese scholars used thin slivers of bamboo to write and record history, and bamboo was also used in the manufacture of musical instruments. It was incorporated into their daily lives and soon, it became a form of spiritual expression with healing connotations.

At Match Skin Salon Brighton, we offer deep tissue massage where we use bamboo stalks. This means that our massage therapists don’t use their hands during the massage but, instead, use a roll of heated bamboo to reduce pain in your joints and ligaments and warm your muscles. The firmness of the bamboo, allows the therapist to knead deeper than they could with bare hands.

Our Brighton massage therapists warm the bamboo sticks at room temperature and use the warmed sticks on your body with deep, direct strokes that break down tension and release tight muscles similar to the results when you undergo myofascial release.

The silica in the bamboo extracts also help your body absorb essential minerals and improve lymph drainage, joint stiffness and clarity of mind as well as aiding the release of endorphins.

Couple’s Massage

A couple’s massage is a popular way to spend time with your partner in Brighton whilst enjoying the benefits of a traditional massage. But, finding the right massage salon in North Moulsecoomb, Portslade Village, Preston Park and Roedean that offers a massage for couples is sometimes difficult.

Match Skin Salon Brighton allows you to choose when to have your couples massage beside your partner while also strengthening the bond that exists between you.
We have a dedicated large, luxurious room where we cater to couples and deliver a memorable spa experience. If you’re uncertain as to the type of massage to have with your partner, our friendly staff in Brighton are on hand to answer your questions and advise you.

Our couples massage therapy is not limited to young couples but includes older couples living in Rottingdean, Saltdean, Southern Cross, Stanmer, Waterhall and other areas in and around Brighton.

We will have a glass of champagne waiting for you upon arrival and an impressive range of massages to choose from, including hot stone, deep tissue and aromatherapy massages.

Deep Tissue Massage

Looking for relief from tension and muscular knots? Having trouble sleeping at night? Need help to feel more focused? A deep tissue massage at Match Skin Salon Brighton is the perfect solution.

Our experienced massage therapists use forearms, thumbs and elbows to stretch out tense and shortened muscles. Your massage therapist will focus on all your areas of muscle tension to realign fascia and muscle, lengthen short muscles, relieve pain, aid relaxation, improve range of motion and improve posture.

The biggest benefit of having a deep tissue massage at Relaxing Massage Therapies in Brighton is that it focuses on a specific. The session begins with lighter pressure to prepare the muscles before starting to use more specific techniques. These techniques include friction applied to your muscles to realign tissue fibres and a deep gliding pressure on your muscle fibres using the stripping technique. You may feel some discomfort in areas of scar tissue, so, please inform your massage therapist if you suddenly experience a sharp pain during the message so that they can adjust the technique.

Hot Stone Massage

Living in West Blatchington, Westdene, Whitehawk, Withdean, Saltdean and Woodingdean? Looking for a massage that eases and relaxes damaged soft tissue and tense muscles in your body? Match Skin Salon Brighton offers hot stone massage therapy with smooth, black, heated stones.

We use a volcanic rock known for its heat retention properties, and your Brighton spa therapists warm the stones in water until they reach the recommended temperature between 120 and 130 degrees Fahrenheit. We then place the heated, flat stones on specific areas of your body including your feet/toes, chest, stomach, spine, face and palms. Our massage therapists borrow techniques from the Swedish massage such as vibration, long strokes, kneading, circular movements and tapping with the stones. We also sometimes switch cold stones for hot stones to soothe your skin and calm engorged blood vessels.

Hot stone massage in Brighton helps to ease pain and muscle tension, increasing the flow of blood to affected parts of your body. Alternating it with cold therapy also relieves inflammation.

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, a hot stone massage is a natural alternative to sleeping aids. Research shows you will sleep better with a hot stone massage session lasting 30 minutes or longer. The strokes using hot stones are deeper and 10 times more efficient than a traditional massage. It also helps to relieve pain from fibromyalgia, a condition associated with chronic pain.

For your safety and wellbeing, it is crucial that you choose a licensed massage therapist to administer a hot stone massage. We do not heat the stones with an oven, microwave or slow cooker.

Reflexology Massage Therapy

Reflexology is a type of massage that stimulates the nerves on your feet to restore your body’s natural balance. Ancient Chinese healers worked on the feet and hands to prevent disease and promote good health. Traditional Chinese medicine used acupressure, acupuncture, exercise and herbalism to revitalise a person’s energy or life force by connecting with 14 major meridians in the body, most of which are found on the tips of your toes and fingers.

Reflexology is a holistic healing technique that incorporates acupressure and massage on the feet. The organs of your body are mapped out on your foot and worked on to promote healing and maintain good health. It is a powerful tool for stress relief and relaxation. And can also improve your digestive and immune system.

If you live in East Moulsecoomb , Whitehawk, West Blatchington and other areas in Brighton, Match Skin Salon’s offers an experienced team of 12 massage therapists, an acupuncturist and three osteopaths. We provide an exceptional level of care that relaxes your feet and heals your body.

Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy. It hinges on the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet corresponding to organs, glands and other parts of the body. When administered by a Match Skin Salon professional, it promotes the correct nerve impulse functioning, improves blood supply and relieves tension in your body.

Specific conditions reflexology treats include oedema, insomnia, tension, skin conditions such as eczema and acne, menstrual problems, respiratory conditions, body pain and sinusitis.

Foot Massage

Foot massages began in Asia. They were used for centuries to relax the body and mind whilst improving health and wellbeing. The foot massage therapy at Match Skin Salon Brighton borrows from Reflexology and Shiatsu. Here, we apply pressure to over 7,000 nerves in your foot to release blockages in your entire body.

Our foot massage therapy is ideal for residents of Brighton including Woodingdean, Whitehawk, Rottingdean and Waterhall who work long hours at a desk or even where you’re on your feet for the entire day. The resulting lack of mobility, or too much mobility could affect your health and lead to a buildup of stress and muscle tension.

Our top quality reflexology foot massage in Brighton leads to happy, healthy and functioning ankles, feet and toes. Bruised heels, collapsed arches and toe problems, all caused by improper gait and footwear, become a thing of the past when you visit Match Skin Salon. Osteoarthritis, deep vein thrombosis and fibrosis as a result of leg injury may also be addressed. We have expert massage therapists who are adept at foot massage and reflexology.

Stress weakens your immune system, and foot massage therapy will combat this by stimulating blood vessels and improving circulation. It eases anxiety and tension by triggering the release of built-up stress through your feet.

Pregnancy Massage (4 months+)

For thousands of years, ancient cultures have used prenatal massages to support mothers in their spiritual and physical journey to childbearing, and modern research has shown that prenatal massage therapy is a crucial element of a woman’s prenatal care. Whilst many massage training institutes teach this type of therapy, it is important that you choose only a certified prenatal massage therapist in Brighton.

At Match Skin Salon Brighton, we only perform pregnancy massage on women four months plus into their pregnancy, free of any medical problems and after having received consent from their doctor. Treatment by one of our licensed prenatal massage therapist will be relaxing, gentle and without firm pressure.

We use a combination of Swedish and Thai oils to help promote wellness, reduce stress and relieve body aches. As your pregnancy progresses, treatment will be adjusted. Our treatment is also unique to every woman as we believe there is no one-size fit for every pregnancy. Your massage therapist will perform the massage as you lie on your side and will support your knees, head and baby.

Research in the last decade reveals that hormonal levels associated with stress and relaxation are altered when you receive a prenatal massage. This leads to improved cardiovascular health and better mood regulation. Most of our Brighton customers come to us when the discomfort of pregnancy becomes unbearable. The real benefits, however, lie in regular sessions throughout your pregnancy.

Prenatal massage therapy in Brighton provides you with a nurturing touch for emotional support, it soothes your nervous system, relieves discomfort in your varicose veins, lowers back and constipation heartburn. It also eases labour pain and enhances the pliability of underlying tissues on your skin.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues to improve your overall wellbeing and health. For thousands of years, massage was used in the ancient cultures of India, Egypt and China for a variety of health-related purposes. It became more widespread in Europe and America during the Renaissance and was promoted for its healing benefits.

Whilst scientific evidence is limited, massage therapy has few risks when performed by a licensed massage therapist at Match Skin Salon Brighton. Massage therapy includes many techniques and may include mind-body interventions. However, all techniques involve manipulating the muscles and soft tissues of the body. Your massage therapist will use their fingers and hands during each session. Sometimes they use elbows, forearms and feet depending on the technique being administered.

In the past, it was thought of as a perk that affluent people enjoyed. Today, it is available for everyone who wants to feel better, recover from a sports injury and relieve pain. There are over 250 variations of massage therapy in use today, each with its own origin and aim.

Popular massage therapy styles in Brighton include:

The massage therapists at Match Skin Salon Brighton work in a variety of settings and we are available for corporate events and health promotions at your workplace. Usually, the person to be massaged wears loose-fitting clothes or is sometimes undressed (they expose only the areas to be massaged) and lies on the massage table or sit on the massage chair. Our massage therapist uses oil to reduce friction on your skin and each session lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.

How does massage therapy work?

A question many of our clients in Brighton & Hove ask is “Does massage therapy work?” “Can it treat pain or is it a pleasant distraction to take the edge off?”

Good quality massage at Match Skin Salon Brighton is a worthwhile experience. The emotional value of touch has a positive impact on your mental health, mood and general wellbeing. It also causes a physiological change in your body through mechanical responses and the relaxation response.

The mechanical response is the physical effect from pressure applied by our massage therapist to soft tissues in your body. All the organs in your body share a neurological pathway with the bones, muscles and nerves, and the massage thus serves to improve organ and muscle functioning.

What are the benefits of massage?

When your body is tense and stressed, a massage decreases cortisol levels in order to relax your body, reduce stress levels and improve your mood

It helps to lower blood pressure. Consistent massage sessions go one step further to reduce trigger sources for hostility, anxiety, depression and tension.

If you suffer from neck, back and muscle pain, poor posture might be the cause. Massage therapy in Brighton helps to improve posture by loosening tense muscles.

  • Helps your body produce endorphins which are amino acids used as a natural painkiller
  • Reduces scar tissue by promoting tissue regeneration
  • Improves athletic performance
  • Improves the physical condition of your skin
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Reduces muscle spasm
  • Helps the body get rid of toxins and body waste by increasing lymphatic flow

Can Massage Therapy help Chronic/Acute Treat Pain?

According to an article in Harvard Health, massage therapy is a legitimate therapy for treating some painful conditions and it relieves pain by relaxing painful tendons, muscles and joints. A Brighton massage helps to close the pain gate and t relieves anxiety and stress by stimulating nerve fibres blocking pain messages to/from the brain.

A 2014 study in Annals of Family Medicine reported that a 60-minute massage therapy, 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks relieves chronic neck pain. According to the NHS, manual therapy by an osteopath using their hands to move and apply forces to the joints, muscles and bones in and around your spine may help with chronic back pain.

The rigours of daily living have a way of stealing your happiness. Over time it becomes difficult to find joy in work, your body hurts all the time, your feet ache from the high heels you have to wear and sometimes, your job requires you to stay on your feet for hours.

FAQ's

Prenatal massage is highly recommended for pregnant women. It is very effective in easing accumulated emotional and physical stresses of pregnancy.

A massage therapist with specialized training is experienced in effectively positioning and supporting the woman’s body during the massage and knows when to make technique adjustments and when to avoid certain areas and techniques at specific stages of pregnancy. The recipient often lies on her side during the massage. A special table is often provided to ensure that the pregnant woman is comfortable and safe through the massage.

Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic pain, cognitive imbalances, and tiredness. Depending on the sensitivity level, a light massage such as those offered by Swedish massage, Shiatsu, cranial-sacral therapy, reflexology, and myofascial is often beneficial. Deep tissue massage and hot stone massage are also known to be very effective against fibromyalgia when the two techniques are complemented.

  • Reflexology: points in the hands and feet are stimulated which causes a general body relaxation. It makes use of light pressure applied in short bursts.
  • Swedish massage: the entire body is massaged with the use of kneading movements and long strokes.
  • Cranial-sacral therapy: the overall muscle function can be improved by applying pressure to the key areas of the skull and the lower spine.

The direct and reflex reaction of the stimulated nerves determines the effects of massage therapy on the nervous system. The type, and length, and technique of a massage session undergone would determine whether the nervous system would be soothed or stimulated. Whichever the case, massage therapy has a soothing, calming, and relaxing effect on the nervous system and on the body as a whole.

Massage helps to balance the autonomic nervous system, releases endorphins and enhances the neurotransmitters of the brain, prevents nerve entrapment, prevents the compression of the nerve roots often caused by muscle tension, stimulates the nerve receptors and affects the vasomotor nerves, pain preceptors, underlying joints and muscles, as well as other internal organs.

Getting massage sessions on a regular basis has a long term effect of enhancing blood circulation alongside other numerous benefits. Pressure supplied by the various massage types and techniques facilitates circulation and increases blood flow through various congested areas and encourages the abundance of oxygenated blood. Lactic acid accumulation in the muscles is also flushed out a through the squeezing and pulling movements of massage sessions.

Tennis elbow is as a result of repetitive motion which causes strains on the area.  There is the common extensor tendon in the elbow which lies near a trigger point popularly referred to as Perfect Spot No.5. When this trigger point is manipulated by skilled massage therapists, it provides a great amount of relief against wrist pain and the tennis elbow. Also, certain areas of the body are often linked. When a massage therapist applies pressure on seemingly unrelated areas of the body such as an area in the neck, and the scalene muscles, it reduces the discomfort caused by tennis elbow. These seemingly unrelated areas of the body are directly linked to the area of pain.

 

Massage promotes increased circulation and is beneficial in the treatment of frozen shoulder. It promotes increased blood flow to the injured region and reduces the formation of scar tissues. Getting regular massages would help to relieve pinched muscles and reduce stiffness. Although massage techniques alone would not be sufficient to safely break the adhesions in the shoulder joint capsule, after several massage sessions over a period of time, the stiffness and pain typically gets relieved.

Neuromuscular therapy and Shiatsu massage are often best for relieving back pain.

  • Neuromuscular therapy falls under trigger point massage which focuses on specific regions for the relief of pain and pressure. It involves the application of pressure to muscle areas that are painful to the touch (muscle spasms). It targets the underlying causes of chronic pain that involves the nervous and muscular systems. It addresses postural issues, circulation problems, trigger points, biomechanical problems, and nerve compressions.
  • Shiatsu massage is an ancient Japanese technique that literally means finger pressure. It works on different pressure points with a combination of gentle stretches and finger pressure and fixes imbalances in the body’s energy flow. Undressing is not required for Shiatsu massage. It calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, alleviates stress, improves the circulation, and relieves stiff muscles.

Deep tissue massage, trigger point, sports massage, and Swedish massage are often best for sore muscles.

  • Deep tissue massage involves the application of pressure on specific trouble points. The troubled muscles are pushed into, often far down to the bone. It is often preferred by athletes who undergo strenuous muscle workouts.
  • Trigger point massage: focuses on specific areas to relieve pain instead of working entire muscle groups. It loosens tight areas and relieves muscle pain and injuries.
  • Sports massage: the entire body is rubbed and the muscles are kneaded. It improves circulation and promote muscle repair after intense workout.
  • Swedish massage: Swedish massage uses circular motions and gentle strokes to help relaxation and relieve sore muscles.

 

Aromatherapy massage is often best for anxiety. It is a Swedish massage that incorporates scented plant oils which are known as essential oils. Essential oils are extracted from flowers, fruits, seeds, and other plant parts and have pleasant scents. They are also believed to have healing properties, promote relaxation and relieve anxiety. Pre-blended oils are typically used during the massage to energize and uplift. Oils are often also selected to effectively satisfy specific needs. Aromatherapy massage is also very effective in relieving headaches, back pain, some digestive disorders, insomnia, and premenstrual symptoms. It is often advised to inquire about the contents of the oils used for the massage just in case a person has allergies and the use of some oils may cause reactions to the skin. Sports massage also helps to reduce anxiety, especially for people preparing for a competitive sport.

The term relaxation is often ambiguous. A spa like environment could often mean relaxation for some, while for others relaxation would mean working out muscle tension, stretching the muscles, and getting intense sensations that trigger the parasympathetic nervous system. However, some massages are more soothing than others and create a feeling of being wrapped in a cloud. You might consider the following types of massage:

  • Swedish massage: consist of long sweeping strokes (effleurage), muscle kneading and rolling (perissage), friction (deep pressure applied with the knuckles, thumb, or fingertips), rhythmic tapping (tapotement), and rocking and shaking movements (vibration).
  • Hot stone massage: body is massaged and weighed down with hot, smooth stones
  • Chair massage: the neck, shoulders, and back are massaged while sitting face forward in a chair. Clears the tension at the upper part of the body. Undressing or use of oils is not required.
