Swedish Massage

This therapy is a form of relaxation massage which helps release stress, stiffness and muscle tension in the body. It is also relaxing for the mind allowing the client to feel a sense of positive well being. As it helps release stiffness and tension in the body it therefore can aid in improving posture and flexibility and as stress levels are reduced it helps you to feel wonderfully calm within yourself.

Warm Bamboo Massage

This treatment uses heated bamboo sticks using various lengths and diameters to roll, knead and relax the muscles. With these sticks different depths of pressure can be used to help release tight areas in the body. Deeply relaxing and gently detoxifying it improves blood flow to the surrounding tissues and lets you feel extremely calm and relaxed.

Hot Stone Massage

This treatment uses heated basalt stones, volcanic river bed stones from Peru. These stones are used to massage with as well as some being placed on different parts of the body. It allows for a deeper, detoxifying treatment, aiding the client to unwind and let go of any stress and tension in the body more easily and helping to bring a sense of peace to both the mind and body.
