Therapeutic Massage Therapies

Indulge yourself with a relaxation massage or drift off to another world with a foot massage or reflexology session.  Our highly trained massage therapists can help you to relax and rejuvenate your body, mind and soul with a therapeutic massage.

Relaxation massage

One of our most popular massages is the relaxation massage, which increases the oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. 

It feels good, is relaxing, invigorating and many people fall asleep (which is perfectly ok too!)

This massage uses a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, massaging in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.

Some benefits of relaxation massage include:

  • Shortened recovery time from muscular strain
  • Increased circulation without increased heart load
  • Stretching of ligaments and tendons
  • Skin stimulation
  • Soothing of the nervous system
  • Stress reduction – both emotional and physical.

Reflexology & foot massage

Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot’s reflex points mirrors that in a corresponding part of the body.

Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing a particular condition.

It is a healing process that can be used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it heals indirectly.

Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.

Reflexology can help to provide relief for:

  • Sinus pain
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Migraines
  • Pre-menstrual syndrome and other menstrual irregularities
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Sciatica
  • Asthma
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain

 

Hot stones massage

A hot stone massage is used to help you relax and relieve muscle tension and pain.  It is a specialised massage technique that uses smooth hot rocks to assist the massage therapist in warming the muscles and allowing them to provide a deeper massage.
