Below is just a small range of different services applied during your visit, our therapists all offer a different range of services which can be seen on the booking page by selecting 'About our Massage Therapists.'

If you would like a specific treatment, please make sure to book with a therapist who offers this treatment. 

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a whole body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.

The massage therapist will use five main types of massage techniques in a Swedish massage: stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration. 

Unlike deep tissue massage, Swedish massage therapy uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.

Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being.​

Pregnancy Massage

Massage during pregnancy can help you adjust to the dramatic changes you are experiencing as you prepare for childbirth. It is safe at any stage during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Massage is usually undertaken with you in the side-lying position, or semi-reclining, and supported by specially designed 'Body Support Cushions'.

There are several benefits of getting a pregnancy massage for expectant mothers and their babies. It feels good, is excellent in promoting relaxation and bonding, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and tired muscles.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscles and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). This technique is designed to release chronic tension and knots in the muscles, and is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain or are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes.

During a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist will use their fingers, thumbs, and even elbows to apply pressure to specific areas of the body. This pressure may be intense at times, but should not be painful. 

 

The benefits of deep tissue massage can include:

  • Improved range of motion and flexibility

  • Relief from chronic pain

  • Reduction in muscle tension and spasms

  • Improved circulation

  • Lowered blood pressure

  • Reduced stress and anxiety

Reflexology

Reflexology is a technique that applies gentle pressure to your feet or hands.

It aims to bring about a state of relaxation and help the body's own healing process.

 

Reflexology works in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture.

Applying pressure to specific points can reduce pain and anxiety and promote circulation, relaxation, and healing in the body.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for certain benefits. Examples include lavender, orange and bergamot, and eucalyptus.

These “aromas” are all plant-based derivatives from herbs, tree extracts, and flowers. Essential oils are extremely concentrated so to be used correctly they should be diluted into milder oils, humidifiers, or lotions.

The overall purpose of aromatherapy is meant to improve your physical and mental well-being. 

Aromatherapy massage is used for a variety of different reasons, including relaxation, pain management, and improved mood.

These are also some of the basic benefits of massage therapy. Adding essential oils is thought to enhance such benefits.

Facials

Facials are very relaxing but they also help to increase the blood flow under the skin which helps to renew skin cells.  This decreases puffiness and fluid build up from the lymphatic system.

 

Facials also aid in ridding the skin of toxins by increasing good circulation which bring oxygen, proteins and nutrition to the skin. 

We offer two different facials depending on the Therapist you book - please bear this in mind. 

Emma offers our Gua Sha Facial. 

This is an ancient Chinese Therapy that involves using smooth stone such as rose quartz to massage your skin.

The name literally translates to “scratch” (gua) and “sand” (sha). The smooth stone scrapes the skin to increase blood circulation and generate heat. This helps to move chi (life force energy in the blood) and dissolve energy blockages, reduce pain, and aid in detoxification through the blood and internal organs.

Michelle offers our Luxury Facial using Tropic skincare products as they are COSMOS certified organic, vegan and cruelty free.  As well as smelling amazing!

This facial include deep cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturising with products to suit different skin types to help target any problem areas.
