I have tension in my neck and shoulders and feel like there are knots
Sports/Remedial massage is the best choice if you feel this way. I will do a consultation with you to establish where the problem is, and how you want to feel after your massage. It does go a whole lot deeper but I will not work beyond your tolerance level.
I have an injury or work related pain
Book in for a Sports/Remedial Massage. This massage is very specific and if you have an injury, or decreased mobility that is all we will concentrate on.
I have neck and back pain
During your consultation I will help you work out why have pain, and help you make positive steps to overcome it. Sports/Remedial Massage works best here. After your massage, I will advise on active after care, and if need be, refer you to trusted specialist if the problem proves to be more dysfunctional than just muscle pain.
I just want to relax and de stress
Choose from Swedish or Hot Stones Massage for a full body treatment, or Reflexology for a calming, balancing experience. Please read the descriptions in full on the Treatments page.
I have never had a massage before
Book in for a Swedish Massage. Every massage is bespoke. The pressure is different for every client, but if you book in for Swedish I know that there are no deep seated problems and you just want to relax.
Stress does different damage to all of us. Some of us suffer from locked necks and tight shoulders, others complain of tummy upsets or congested skin, and sometimes headaches or fatigue. The massage starts with a consultation to establish how you are feeling, and how you would like to feel after your massage, and using the right blend of pressure paired with where to concentrate on, I create a bespoke massage. I guarantee you will float around for days afterwards!
Hot Stone Massage is, quite frankly, fabulous! I use Basalt stones which have great heat retention quality. The heat from the stones transfers to my hands, and I then massage the client. Once the stones have cooled down slightly I can then begin to massage the client with the stones which gives a much deeper all over movement than just using my hand.
The benefits of the Hot Stone Massage are relaxation, de stressing, warming, and ease muscle tension. I integrate Hot Stone Massage with Swedish/Deep Tissue moves and the end result is a very warm feeling from the core, a great treatment any time of the year but particularly during the winter months.
I do have a thorough consultation with the client prior to this treatment as there are some contraindications where this treatment would not be ideal, for example, high blood pressure, or during pregnancy
Reflexology is also known as Reflex Zone Therapy and is based on the body being divided into ten equal, vertical zones in which are incorporated all the organs of the head and trunk by imaginary lines drawn through the head, trunk and feet. This division is what the therapist works on through the related zones of the feet. Reflexology is ideal for relaxation, de stressing, promoting balance within a person, and also deep sense of relaxation.
The Natural Lift Facial Massage is a facial regeneration massage integrating methods from Japanese, and Indian Facial Massage, and also using accupressure points on the face to drain away toxins from the skin. It is a wonderfully relaxing treatment to receive, and clients particularly enjoy the head and neck massage that is incorporated in this treatment.
For a natural facelift, facial massage is the best thing. Just as doing squats in the gym will lift and tone your bottom, exercising the muscles in your face will lift and tone your cheekbones, eyes, brows, and mouth. The result? Your face looks five years younger. The massage starts with a neck and shoulder massage because if you are tense or rigid in this area then your face will sag. I use acupressure to release tension in the facial muscles, then a series of fast yet gentle strokes to manipulate the tiny muscles that define the contours of your face. By increasing blood flow, the massage can reduce the appearance of lines, even out skin tone and promote the supply of nutrients to the skin. The massage can also help relieve stress symptoms such as headaches
