Aaaaaah…. A deeply relaxing treatment of massage and healing energy work. Feel your stress and muscle tension melt away with this amazing and creative blend of massage which uses warm basalt stones and hands in a seamless dance of massage that is soothing and magical for both the mind and body.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as with classic massage but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. Feels a bit like a work out with specific pressure points being targeted. You’ll experience the benefits of “good pain” and some nice relaxing bits in between.
Aromatherapy massage is a deeply relaxing style of massage which combines various massage techniques with the use of carefully selected essential oils. These fragrant oils have unique healing properties which help to strengthen the body’s self-healing process. Aromatherapy massage stimulates the immune system, encourages hormone balance, soothes the nervous system and relieves emotional, physical and mental tension. It’s a great way to uplift the spirit, feel revitalised and install a sense of positivity and well-being.
‘Swedish’ or ‘classic’ massage uses a combination of techniques to provide a massage specially suited to you. From an all-over body massage to specifically focusing on problem areas like, back and neck, face, feet and legs and arms/hands. This massage is the perfect treatment to help you feel calmer and relaxed, in a welcoming environment you can be in silence, have music played, or chat during your treatment.
Shiatsu is a healing art, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch and pressure over acupressure points and meridians (energy pathways), which are connected to our internal organs and influence our emotional, psychological, spiritual health. During a shiatsu massage the therapist uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well-being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness. To receive, shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. You remain fully clothed for this treatment.
Reflexology is a natural healing art that involves the application of pressure to specific points (reflexes) on the feet to rebalance and strengthen the body’s natural self healing mechanisms. It is suitable for all age groups. Reflexology works on an individual basis and can improve mood, aid sleep and relieve symptoms associated with stress. It can be a wonderful relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday demands. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.
