​I use a combination of massage techniques and approaches. The pressure with any massage treatment will be adjusted to suit you, so I work with your body, not against it.


CLASSIC (SWEDISH) MASSAGE

Swedish massage is the most common and widely used massage technique, it focuses on the upper muscle layers to effectively relieve stress and muscle tension, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I use a variety of techniques including stroking, kneading, compression and long flowing movements over the body. These work together to relieve muscular tension, soreness and stiffness as well as promoting good blood and lymph circulation. 



DEEP TISSUE / REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue or fascia. I use a range of techniques including myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretching and deep tissue work. The treatment is much slower and deeper than a classic Swedish massage. The benefits are many including, alleviating aches and pains, help with loss of mobility/flexibility and can address chronic pain issues and increase range of movement of specific joints.

HOT/COLD STONE MASSAGE

Hot stone massage is the use of heated basalt stones during a massage session, heat relaxes the body in a short space of time. The application of hot stones to an area penetrates the tissues deeper, softening the muscles and releasing tension, allowing work to be carried out at a deeper musculature level. Cold stones can assist with inflammation and alleviate swelling in damaged tissues. Massage with hot stone techniques promotes a sense of deep relaxation and increases the body's ability to re balance itself.

ACUPRESSURE CHAIR MASSAGE

Also referred to as on-site massage, this is the perfect treatment for people that do not wish to remove clothing or have difficulty lying flat. It is carried out in an ergonomic chair that supports the body in total comfort and requires no massage oils. The acupressure points on the back, neck, arms and head are stimulated and the movements and techniques are adapted to the client's needs and requirements. The treatment leaves you relaxed and energised.


INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing that has been practised for thousands of years. It is carried out in a massage chair or couch where a range of movements and techniques including deep kneading and compression over the neck, shoulders and scalp are performed, gentle strokes are used to stimulate the acupressure points on the face. It is a therapy that is especially good for relieving stress, tension and migraines.
