Swedish massage is the most common type of massage. It is a classic treatment, which represents the western standard for massage.
Besides the calming benefits. Swedish massage is thought to be good for easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins, improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood, helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple, stimulating the nervous system and reducing emotional and physical stress.
As with all treatments, inform me of any medical conditions you may have or if you think you might be pregnant. it's best to avoid heavy meals and alcohol in the hours leading up to and after your massage.
Our 'Deep Tissue' massage is a style that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It helps loosen muscle tissues, releases toxins from muscles and gets blood and therefore oxygen circulating effectively.
Deep Tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish.
This deeply relaxing massage uses specialist basalt stones to help ease the tension in your aching muscles and unwind your tired mind.
Hot Stone Massage originated over 2,000 years ago and has roots in a variety of different cultures including the Egyptians, Chinese and Native Americans,
The stones are warmed in a special heater until they are the correct temperature before use.
The heat from the stones combined with the massage strokes using the stones penetrates and warms the muscles and soft tissues of the body, allowing for a much quicker, deeper relaxing effect.
Hot Stone Massage is particularly effective for people with general aches and pains especially those aggravated by cold damp weather.
Benefits of Hot Stones Massage include:
Pregnancy can be equally challenging and wonderful at the same time. Massage can help alleviate many of the symptoms and conditions associated with pregnancy. During this amazing time of physical and emotional change, massage can be of enormous benefit to both mother and baby.
Each Pregnancy is different; therefore, each massage will be tailored to suit each individual. The massage will not commence until you feel completely at ease. During the Full Body massage, particular attention will be made on deeper softening techniques for the feet, calves, lower back and hips.
Stimulating healing throughout the body using pressure points in the feet.
Reflexology is an ancient healing tradition found in many cultures and based on the principle that all parts of our body are connected by energy pathways which end in the hands, feet and head. A reflexology treatment uses pressure massage on specific areas of the feet to stimulate healing in the corresponding organs, glands and structures. This releases area of tension and helps energy to flow more freely throughout your body.
Your reflexologist will start with a detailed consultation and will then ask you to lie on the couch with your footwear removed. They'll work on your feet, concentrating on specific reflex points to stimulate healing in certain areas of your body. As your energy flow is rebalanced, you'll feel deeply relaxed and replenished.
