Massage: soft-tissue therapy that covers a diverse range of styles and techniques to help your body relax and rejuvenate
Injury prevention, pain management and rehabilitation
Musculoskeletal dysfunction such as rotator cuff tendonopathy, jaw and neck pain, arthritis and joint pain
DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and cramps
Working deep within the muscles, remedial massage releases trigger points and knots, and also includes stretching to free areas of restriction and help correct posture. Remedial massage is designed to relieve short- and long-term, soft-tissue injuries where there is pain or loss of movement. Rehabilitation exercises are provided. It is ideal for office workers who spend hours at a computer or desk, or those with active, busy lifestyles, as is especially beneficial for people with lower back pain or neck and shoulder tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure to loosen key areas of tightness, restoring flexibility and movement. It combines long flowing strokes with circular movements to work deep into the muscles and relieve tightness. Therapeutic essential oil blends are used to encourage the muscles to release tension leaving you feeling lighter and more energised.
Get more benefits from a good work out and maximise your sport training with a body that is performing at optimal capacity. Minimise the risk of a sporting injury by preparing your body with an energising massage that uses warm therapeutic essential oils to revitalise tired muscles and prevent risk of injury with a personalised stretching program. Post training session, sports massage can help release a build up of lactic acid in the muscles and aid recovery, leaving you ready to tackle your next challenge.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique (using a heat ‘vacuum’ suction effect) to stimulate the flow of blood and lymph to move stagnation (metabolic waste, lactic acid) and mobilise the muscle to relax and reduce muscle pain and dysfunction. It is beneficial for alleviating muscle tension, sporting injuries, common colds and flu and stimulating the nervous system.
Relaxation & Healing Massage Therapy
Relieves pregnancy aches and pains
Reduces stress and tension
Relaxation massage restores your sense of well-being and reduces mental and physical tension, fatigue and stress. By using moderate pressure and gentle flowing movements to assist the flow of blood returning to the heart, it stimulates your skin and nervous system and relaxes the muscles. To enhance the massage, specific aromatherapy essential oil blends are used to promote relaxation and ensure you have a wonderful experience.
Hot stone massage is the ultimate indulgence in relaxation massage. Smooth, specially chosen basalt stones are used for their heat retaining properties and are gently heated then incorporated into a flowing relaxation massage. The heat helps relax muscles and increase blood flow, helping to alleviate pain, increase joint mobility and leave you feeling rejuvenated with a peaceful and calm mind and body.
Shiatsu (“finger pressure”) massage promotes health by helping restore the body’s natural balance and energy flow by incorporating a gentle pressure massage with (oriental) diagnostic techniques. It can also promote prevention and recovery from illness by stimulating the body’s natural healing process as well as releasing endorphins to help relaxation and stress release.
Pre- and Post-Natal (Pregnancy) Massage
Pregnancy massage is ideal for alleviating the discomforts of pregnancy (including sciatica, fatigue, back pain and swelling) and increasing your well-being. This style of massage is effective and safe right up until term, and only pregnancy friendly oils are used allowing you, the mother-to-be, to be nurtured with peace of mind. Breastfeeding, lifting and carrying a baby (and doing everything else), interrupted sleep and added pressure can often lead to neck, shoulder and back pain. Alleviate mental and physical stress with a post natal massage.
