Indian head massage
This traditional technique uses massage on acupressure points in the head, neck and shoulders. It has its roots in Ayurveda, an Indian alternative medicine system that focuses on the connection between the mind and body. An Indian head massage has the power to improve physical symptoms, such as headaches, sinus problems and tension, as well as helping to improve your general wellbeing. It’s a wonderfully relaxing experience.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Our popular Hot Stone Massage promotes deeper muscle relaxation by warming up tight muscles enabling the therapist to work more deeply and more quickly, allowing the therapist access to deeper muscle layers.
Our Pregnancy Massage is specifically tailored to help the changing needs of women during the course of their pregnancy. Pregnancy massage can ease some of the strains and stresses of pregnancy, any or all of the following:
- Easing muscular discomfort and muscle tightening that can be experienced throughout the body e.g. calf cramps, lower back pain, upper back pain
- Reducing swelling and oedema in the hands, feet or ankles
- Pregnancy massage can help lessen sciatic pain.
- Relieving physical & emotional stress. Improving circulation
- Relaxed and deeper breathing. Pregnancy related aches & Pains
Essential oils are able to penetrate into the bloodstream and through the olfactory system, for a profound effect on mind and body. An aromatherapy expert will help you choose the most effective blend for your specific intention.
HEAD, NECK, BACK MASSAGE
Give your stiff neck and tight shoulders a break – you’ll feel better all over. This focused massage releases tension and restores comfort to this typically tense area. This massage encourages a speedy uplift and well-being so you can head back to work feeling rejuvenated and ready for action.
The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. It is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
Hand and face
A hand or face massage achieves specific results by focusing on certain areas of the body.
Hand massage can help with:
- Work injuries/injuries from using a computer
- Stiff muscles and joints
- Repetitive strain syndrome
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Raised tendons in the hands
Your treatment will also comprise some reflexology techniques, helping to heal your whole body inside and out.
Facial massage can help with:
- Sinus problems
- Skin elasticity

Both types of massage will detox the lymph glands, relieving stress and anxiety at the same time.
