Sports Massage

1hr - £45
30 mins - £30
Sports massage provides pre, post and maintenance therapy but you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. The treatment generally concentrates on a specific problem area such as back, neck, shoulder, knee etc.

Sports massage is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and incorporates a combination of techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning and trigger point therapy. Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense and I always use hot stone therapy in the treatment and occasionally deep percussion tools.

Oncology Massage

1hr - £45
Oncology massage is the adaptation of massage to safely nurture body, mind and spirit of anyone who is dealing with cancer.
Oncology massage can bring a reduction in pain, anxiety, constipation, fatigue, nausea and muscle tension and has the ability to increase serotonin and dopamine - the “feel good” chemicals in your body.

No matter where you are in your journey with cancer, oncology massage may be used as a complementary modality to help combat the side effects of treatment and help both physically and emotionally.

Lymphatic Drainage

90 mins - £60
1hr - £45
30 mins - £30
Lymphatic drainage massage is a special type of massage that reduces swelling from lymphoedema. The aim of the massage is to move fluid from the swollen area into an area where the lymphatic system is working normally. The massage is gentle - it is not a deep massage. The movements are slow and rhythmic so the lymph vessels open up. Lymphatic drainage helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body’s immune system, helps the body heal from surgery and aids the body’s natural waste removal or detoxification.

Fire and Ice Massage

90 mins - £65

Hot Stone Massage

60 mins - £45
This is a full body massage using hot basalt stones and ice cold marble stones alternately to stimulate the nervous system and draw out blood and toxins with the cold whilst the heat flushes the toxins. During the massage, stones  are placed between the toes to help stimulate the energy pathways and large Grandfather stones on the back over a towel (as very hot) to radiate heat throughout the body.

Fire and Ice is an extremely relaxing massage treatment. It accelerates healing and creates a state of deep mental relaxation, helps reduce stress and detoxify the mind as well as the body.

TMJ Dysfunction

1hr - £45
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is an umbrella term covering pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication and the temporomandibular joints. The most important feature is pain, followed by restricted mandibular movement, and noises from the temporomandibular joints during jaw movement. Although TMD is not life-threatening, it can be detrimental to quality of life, because the symptoms can become chronic and difficult to manage. Symptoms include - headaches, bruxism (teeth grinding) worn teeth, tinnitus, earache, dizziness, difficulty swallowing / speaking, trismus (difficulty opening mouth normally) difficulty sleeping, twitching eye and facial muscles, chronic pain or tenderness around ear, neck, face, upper back and shoulders.

Reflexology

50 mins - £35
Reflexology with Indian Head Massage - £55
Reflexology is the practice of massaging and applying pressure to certain areas of the feet. It is an ancient therapy believed to be around 5000 years old and originally practiced by the Chinese and Egyptians. Reflexology helps the body’s natural energy to flow better, identifying and removing any blockages to help re- tune and bring the body back into balance. It is based on the principle that certain areas of the feet called reflexes are linked to and correspond to other areas on the body. Areas corresponding to parts of the body which are out of balance may feel uncomfortable or tender when massaged and the degree of tenderness will indicate the degree of imbalance. Reflexology improves circulation and lymph flow, cleanses the body of impurities, excellent for stress relief as well as invigorating and energising.

Aromatherapy

1hr Full Body - £45
Aromatherapy massage is a deeply relaxing form of massage using a medium of aromatic essential oils diluted in carrier oil to improve physical and emotional well-being. The chosen blend will be gently massaged into the body, so that the essential oils can be absorbed gradually to do their work. It is a deeply therapeutic experience, promoting deep relaxation with therapeutic effects from the essential oils, such as energising, calming, stress relief, uplifting, decongestant etc.

Hopi candling and facial drainage - £35

- Hopi Ear Candling with Natural Face Lift Massage - £55
- Hopi ear candling with Indian Head Massage - £55
- With Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage - £55

Hopi ear candling also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. However, the practice reached the modern world via the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they may be gently removed. The pressure flow circulates a concentrated vapour enriched with the herbal extracts inside the ear which also gently massages the ear drum. Ear candling is a pleasant and non - invasive treatment of the ears and helps with many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat. It is suitable for compacted wax, sinusitis, catarrh, glue ear, tinnitus, colds and flu, sore throats, hay fever, headaches and snoring.

Reiki - £35

Reiki is a concentrated form of the vital life energy force channelled for the purpose of healing. The Reiki energy is transferred through the laying of hands. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The Reiki practitioner places their hands on or near the body in a series of non-intrusive positions. Reiki brings you more closely into contact with yourself, opening you up to become more loving with yourself and with others. Healing occurs for the highest good of the individual; this can be on a spiritual, mental, emotional or physical level.

Ashiatsu

£70 - 1 hour
£85 - 90 mins
The deepest and most luxurious massage on the planet. Ashi means foot and atsu means pressure. Ashiatsu is unique as the feet are used to deliver the treatment while the therapist maintains their balance by the use of overhead ropes. This massage is an art form using the feet to massage in long sweeping therapeutic motions enabling the muscles to lengthen and relax and activate the energy channels. Ashiatsu is a wonderful, relaxing, sedating deep tissue massage for those who prefer a deeper pressure.
