Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is an ancient art combining the use of essential oils with therapeutic massage.

Aromatherapy is similar to massage, using many of the same strokes and techniques. In addition to this, essential oils which are extracted from plants are blended and used during the massage to promote physical and emotional well being.

A short confidential consultation will be conducted at the beginning of each session and oils selected to suit the needs of each individual client. Aftercare advice will also be discussed and home use of essential oils, for example in the bath or a vaporiser may also be suggested.

Aromatherapy is well suited to treating emotional and mood related disorders. For the body to be healthy it is clear that the mind must also be healthy. Maintaining well being of the body and mind using essential oils plays a major part of the practice of aromatherapy. It is also important to consider the patient's diet, environment, lifestyle and exercise habits during treatment.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

This is helpful for very tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks and sore shoulders. The movement is slower and the pressure is deeper than in classic massage treatments and concentrates more on specific areas.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down rigid and painful muscles, ligaments & tendons using direct deep pressure or friction applied across the muscles.

Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic pain, recovery from injuries such as falls, sports injury and whiplash, fibromyalgia and muscle tension or spasm.

Hot Stone Massage

Heated stones and various massage techniques are used all over the body to reduce muscular tension, stiffness and increase circulation and metabolism. A deeply relaxing treatment.

Holistic Massage

Holistic Massage is a hands-on therapy which has played a major role in many cultures for thousands of years.

The many benefits of different kinds of massage are known worldwide. Happily, therapeutic massage is now an officially recognised complementary therapy in the West.

Holistic massage is a therapy which can not only treat the physical body, but can also help rebalance the body as a whole. It is a relaxing treatment that encourages relaxation while lifting the mind on an emotional level. Massage relaxes tight muscles and can relieve physical and emotional stress. It can be beneficial for assisting with anxiety and exhaustion by helping to improve sleep and concentration, improving circulation and encouraging relaxed breathing and better digestion.

Swedish Massage

This is a centuries-old treatment for the body.

Swedish Massage involves working with the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.
