Massage therapy tailored to meet the specific needs of the client to promote an optimal level of physical and psychological health and wellbeing.
Swedish massage is a classic form of full body massage that relaxes tense muscles and improves the body systems. Swedish massage helps to maintain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The skin and superficial muscles are gently manipulated using traditional effleurage, petrissage, and percussion variations.
Swedish massage 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.
Full body £40 (60 mins)
Swedish massage is recommended as a relaxing treatment for:
Stimulating the release of happy hormones (endorphins, serotonin and dopamine) to give a person a sense of wellbeing, reduce anxiety, depression and levels of stress and pain.
Lowering the levels of the stress hormone (cortisol) to increase relaxation, reduce pain and improve overall mood.
Increased temperature and blood flow to the muscles and soft tissues to promote muscle relaxation.
Stimulate the lymphatic system to excrete toxins and waste products naturally and to help to prevent illness.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. Primarily, it focuses on alleviating certain muscular and skeletal conditions. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. These techniques break up adhesions and fascial restrictions lying deep in the muscles. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Tension Release Massage
Tension release massage is a deep tissue massage with the additional use of neuromuscular therapy, which uses soft tissue manipulation to help improve the overall function and alignment of the musculoskeletal system. Using pressure points, a consistent amount of pressure is placed on a specific area of the body, helping to reduce chronic pain and ease away tension without causing further pain. Additionally at the end of the massage, the restricted muscles are stretched and released using muscle energy techniques to increase the range of movement and improve movement patterns.

Tension release massage is recommended to treat the following:
Migraine/tension headaches: Which can stem from trigger points, nerve entrapment and vascular compression.
Trigger points: These are highly irritated points in muscles that refer pain to other parts of the body.
Nerve compression: Pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone causing pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness. The most common being pressure on the median nerve causing carpal tunnel syndrome.
Postural distortions: An imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body off the longitudinal and horizontal planes. Longtime poor postural habits are the most common cause of pain from this element.
Biomechanical dysfunction: An imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns.
