Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a therapy that uses hot stones, expertly guided by the therapist to give you a warm, relaxing and soothing massage. The heat from the stones penetrates deeply into the underlying tissues, resulting in these tissues softening and relaxing. The stones used are smooth basalt stone, that have been heated to a safe temperature in hot water, and then applied by the therapist to your body. The stones will be used to conduct your massage, and also placed on your body and covered with towels, allowing the heat to melt away the tension. You can choose from a back, neck and shoulder massage with just the stones, or a combination of hot stones and Swedish massage, very effective for extremely tense, or sore aching muscles. Or you can totally indulge yourself in a full body Hot Stone Massage. An hour and a quarter of complete relaxation, as the smooth, heated stones glide over your body, transporting you to a place of peace and tranquillity.

Swedish Massage

This massage uses just oil, and the therapists hands. As series of movements which when combined into a sequence will ease out knots and tension and leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. The therapist will use her hands to discover areas of tension and imbalance in the underlying tissue, and then systematically work these areas to improve them. This massage can be adjusted to suit an individuals needs . For example: stimulating and invigorating, or relaxing and soothing, or a combination of both. Massage benefits both the mind and the body , inducing a sensation of well being and relaxation. This gentle therapy can improve circulation, aid digestion, and speed the elimination body wastes. Backache, migraine, sports injuries, high blood pressure, insomnia, anxiety and all the myriad manifestations of stress are naturals for massage. Regular massage can improve the quality of life, and help us to maintain positive health.

Reflexology

The therapist works on specific points on the feet and sometimes the hands, which correspond to areas within the body. By working both feet the body is re-balanced as a whole. This treatment brings about deep relaxation and is particularly good for stress related conditions. Both feet are always treated in every session to ensure balance. Treatment time are usually ¾ - 1 hour.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage or Champissage, concentrates on the upper back, arms, shoulders, neck head and face. Treatment is carried out while seated on a low backed chair. There is no need to remove any clothing as the massage is carried out through the clothes. No oil is used. The treatment is a series of massage movements over the upper body, arms head and face. The movements vary between invigorating and very soothing, depending on the areas being worked. This treatment is very useful for relieving tension in the upper body and head.

Combination Session

None of the treatments are exclusive to them selves; the beauty of having more than one skill is that they can be combined together to give you the best overall treatment for your needs. For example, if someone came to me because they have a very stiff neck, their head feels heavy, and they are getting lots of headaches, I would maybe suggest some hot stones to begin with, to soften and relax everything, and then some Swedish massage to work all over the tense muscles, and then finish off with some of the Indian head moves to help relax the neck and scalp. You can choose how long you want to be treated for and which treatments you would like.
