Body Massage

It may look like a lot of rubbing and kneading on your skin, but massage is actually a scientific process.

The reason you feel better after a massage is because it is healing and invigorating tired, aching and injured muscles. Massage also increases blood and lymphatic circulation, lymph being the fluid that rids the body of waste, which is dependent on the squeezing effect of muscles.

An active person has better lymph flow than an inactive person. This is where massage has a huge advantage. Massage can aid the lymph movement which, in turn, increases blood, nutrient and oxygen supplies whilst removing waste and toxins. It is easy to see why good circulation is so important to our health and why massage can be so beneficial.

Swedish Massage

You have been working hard and your body is aching, so why not indulge yourself with a Swedish Massage. A blend of two ‘ancient healing arts’ – massage and essential oils – it’s still as vital to our overall wellness now as it was centuries ago. You will feel relief from stress, improved muscle flexibility & performance, and energised in the mind, body and spirit.

Hot Stone Massage

This ancient massage technique utilises the benefits of thermotherapy (alternating hot and cold). Hot volcanic stones with deep penetrating heat and cold stones are strategically placed and used on the body throughout the massage to restore physical, emotional & spiritual well-being.

Pregnancy Massage

Lie back in comfort and take time out for yourself as you allow your back & hip aches to melt away and the pressures of pregnancy to be forgotten.  This massage can be done on the massage table and/or on the chair.

Lymphatic Drainage

An extremely light and calming treatment, used to stimulate the lymphathic circulation and reduce or maintain lymphoedema.  It also helps to reduce pain and stiffness from arthritis, boost your immunity, improve sinus conditions and reduce swelling during pregnancy.

Indian Head Massage

Based on a 1000 year old tradition, now popular in the West for its relaxing benefits. A firm, gentle rhythmic massage to shoulders, neck and scalp. Indian Head Massage can be used for the following: relieve eye strain, relieve insomnia, ease headaches & migraine, relax muscles, relax & tone facial muscles, stimulate the hair & scalp, help localised blood & lymphatic circulation, boost the immune system, restore joint movement, relieve sinusitis, reduce stress and release anxiety.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a tactile therapy used to activate the body’s own natural healing abilities. All parts of the body correspond to other parts within a particular zone of the feet and hands. When pressure is applied (in the form of massage) to these parts it can relieve pain and stimulate the body’s own healing processes. The body then starts to progressively clear blockages, re-establish energy flows and balance itself, resulting in overall better health.
