Swedish Massage is the most common form of massage. It is the perfect massage for relaxation and combatting stress.
The massage therapist uses long, flowing strokes which increase circulation and help to relax the body. Swedish Massage can be done on the whole body or on a targeted area. Massage oil is used to assist in the massage strokes.
If you’ve never had a massage before, Swedish Massage is a good place to start. The massage therapist uses firm but gentle pressure, and can adjust the pressure according to your preference.
Before any of our massages, our qualified massage therapist will have a consultation with you to determine exactly what you wish to achieve with the massage.
We offer Swedish Massage in 30, 55 and 80-minute sessions.
BACK, NECK & SHOULDER MASSAGE
As the name suggests, this massage targets the upper body, focusing on the back, neck and shoulders. Stiffness and tension in the upper body is common, and this massage uses a cobination of massage techniques to loosen and relax the upper body.
If you have a sedentary job, or suffer from muscular tension in your back, neck and shoulders, this one is for you.
A back, neck and shoulder massage can help increase circulation and reduce stress, leaving you feeling relaxed.
We offer back, neck and shoulder massage in 30 and 45-minute sessions.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is different to Swedish massage, as it uses a stronger pressure which focuses on muscles, joints and tissues. The massage strokes are slower and a bit more forceful, allowing the therapist to access deeper into the muscle and tissue.
This massage is popular with people who have painful knots in their muscles, or other pain from muscle tension.
The massage therapist works with a slow and gradual increase in pressure as the massage works deeper into the muscles. It is not uncommon to feel a bit stiff immediately after a deep tissue massage, but after a while, the rejuvenation and relaxation takes over.
As with any massage, we do a consultation first, so that we can recommend the best treatment for what you wish to address.
We offer Deep Tissue Massage in 30, 55 and 70-minute sessions.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
The Hot Stone Massage is really quite a luxurious and relaxing treatment.
With this massage, the therapist places smooth, heated basalt stones on different parts of your back and legs, and sometimes on the palms of your hands, which helps to warm up and loosen the muscles. The therapist can then access the muscles more deeply. She massages with her hands and can also use the stones themselves in the massage strokes.
Customers often say they feel deeply relaxed and calm after a hot stone massage.
It is good for general relaxation, or if you have particularly painful knots or stiff muscles. As with all massages, this treatment begins with a consultation to ensure you are given the right massage for your needs.
We offer Hot Stone Massage in 30, 55 and 80-minute sessions.
The ultimate in relaxation is to get a an Aromatherapy Massage with the calming and invigorating scents of essential aromatherapy oils. The oils are absorbed into the skin as well as inhaled, leaving you feeling de-stressed and rejuvenated.
