All of our massage therapies are approached holistically and are tailor made to meet your specific needs. Our treatments stimulate and improve circulation, ease tension and assist in the elimination of toxins via the lymphatic system. Most importantly our massage treatments will leave you deeply relaxed.
Traditional Thai massage
Known as ‘lazy man’s yoga’. It is a passive, yet deeply releasing therapy carried out fully clothed from the floor or from a couch. It enhances general health and wellbeing and gently releases tension from the body, allowing the joints to work at ease again. Individualised stretches will be incorporated and our skilled practitioner integrates her yoga and chiropractic expertise, to ensure you get the very best out of your treatment.
Swedish style massage
This is the most common and best known of all the massage treatments and is the foundation for other types of western massage including sports, deep tissue and aromatherapy. If you are going to have a massage for the first time, this would be the perfect massage choice for you. It can be slow and gentle and very relaxing, or vigorous and stimulating, depending on what you are trying to achieve.
Heavenly Indian head massage
Indian Head massage incorporates a number of massage techniques, including deep thumb and finger pressure, friction and soothing strokes. This beautiful treatment includes massage of the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, head, ears and face. It can be carried out with no oil fully clothed (a cotton top would be ideal). Alternatively it can be carried out on bare skin with oils. Indian head treatments may relieve tension headaches and symptoms of migraines. This therapy is quite stimulating, yet is often deeply relaxing and calms the mind.
Essential oils were prepared in China and India centuries ago. The Egyptians learned about them and taught the Greeks, who in turn shared their knowledge to the Romans. Today we are able to treat illness by the use of aromats and their benefits are endless. Essential oils are carefully selected by the therapist and blended with vegetable oil to produce a desired effect eg. calming, relaxing, stimulating, detoxifying, assist sinus problems, sleep deprivation, stress etc. The ultimate aim is to help alleviate symptoms and create a state of harmony and balance.
Shiatsu is a holistic and physical therapy that supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It is performed on a futon and the client remains fully clothed.
Shiatsu means ‘finger pressure’ in Japanese. In practice the therapist uses his/her relaxed body weight, applied principally through the hands. Comfortable pressure is used, together with manipulative techniques to adjust the body’s physical structure and balance energy flow. Most people find this to be a deeply relaxing experience. Regular treatments may alleviate stress and musculo-skeletal discomfort, whilst enhancing overall health and sense of wellbeing.
