MASSAGE SERVICES

Remedial Massage is offered by all of our therapists but other services are individual. Please ensure to request the appropriate therapist depending on the style of treatment you're after or call us if you're unsure. 

Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment time so we can start your treatment on time.  

 REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Remedial massage is a form of deep tissue massage that aims to not only reduce muscle tension but also correct any imbalances in the body. When muscles are tight, they can pull on different areas and bones creating misalignment. Therefore when the muscles are loosened correctly, the body will go back to how it should be, releasing the pressure it was causing on other areas. Usually Remedial massage is focused on a couple of key problem areas as opposed to a whole body treatment.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep Tissue massage is a massage with really firm pressure designed to primarily reduce muscle tension. Other benefits include increased blood & oxygen flow around the body. Mainly performed on larger muscle groups of the body (i.e. not on the face or stomach). Most Deep tissue massage treatments are focused on a specific area but the whole body can be worked on in one treatment if desired.

TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE

 

Trigger point massage aims to reduce muscle tension through the release of trigger points within the muscles. Each muscle usually has one or more trigger points, that when activated, act like a trigger to relax that muscle. Tension can be held on a trigger point for 1-4 minutes quite firmly therefore being another style of deep tissue. Usually each treatment would just focus on a certain problem area/s not the whole body as Trigger points take time to release.

REFLEXOLOGY MASSAGE

 

Reflexology is a treatment performed on either the hands of feet of the body to stimulate all of the different nerve endings in the body. This therefore becomes a whole body treatment balancing all the lines of communication throughout. Usually done for 45 minutes and uses some pressure. Can be effective for internal issues in the body too.

RELAXATION / SWEDISH MASSAGE

 

Sometimes all we need is some time out, or just a mental break, so if you are primarily after relaxation of the mind then this is the style for you! Long slow strokes, enhancing blood and oxygen flow is the goal, along with slowing down and relaxing the mind. A much gentler form of massage and the whole body can be worked over in an hour. The hands, feet and head are usually included as this is where most of the nerve receptors are found on the body; enhancing relaxation from the sense of touch. Great for anxiety, depression, de-stress and self love.

You can choose your particular blend or you can let your experienced therapist choose the best one for you! Let your senses run wild with their amazing aromas, and feel the goodness absorbed immediately into your skin. Natural therapies at its best! The whole body can be worked over or you can just select certain areas.

LYMPH DRAINAGE MASSAGE

 

Lymph drainage enhance the body's natural process of lymph circulation around the body. This is beneficial because the lymph helps circulate the waste products from the muscles and extremeties of the body back to the centre to be processed and disposed of naturally. If the lymph gets stuck, it can build up, contribute to swelling, odema, and other circulatory issues. Lymph drainage therefore assists recovery, circulation and healing in the body. Usually performed as a whole body treatment especially on the arms and legs, using lighter pressure but lots of strokes and very repetitive.
