Remedial Massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons and joints.
Remedial massage stimulates the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; calms the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and tones and relaxes muscles to improve joint mobility.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the muscle fibres.
Deep Tissue massage is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain.
Sports massage is specifically tailored to sporting injuries or ailments.
Sports massage is not only for professional sportspeople or people that exercise heavily, it can benefit anyone that exercises, even if it is only mild exercise such as regular walking.
Relaxation massage is a smooth flowing style that helps reduce stress, improve circulation, ease and tone muscles and provide deep relaxation that allows our minds and bodies to recharge and rejuvenate.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot Stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body.
The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Thorough application of pressure on these reflexology points relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
Aromatherapy involves the use of pure essential oils. In an aromatherapy massage individual blends are prepared by the practitioner, in a base of cold pressed oil then applied to the skin through massage.
As a holistic treatment, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on physical & psychological well being.
There exists the belief that scent, as the most enduring of our senses, has the power to transform our emotions and heal our bodies.
Swedish massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion,vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
Swedish massage feels wonderful, is relaxing and invigorating.

Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine based on the theory of treating ‘like with like’. It stimulates the body’s own healing response to disease, using specially prepared, highly dilute preparations. Homeopathy treats the symptoms of a wide range of illnesses including allergies, asthma, eczema, hay fever, headaches, stress and respiratory infections.
Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system.
It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids,
low immunity, swollen node and also for the physically inactive.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.
Trigger points can be caused by, an injury sustained in a fall or accident, poor posture, or even overexertion of the area itself. The purpose of trigger point therapy is to eliminate the referred pain and to re-educate the muscle into pain-free habits.
After a few treatments, the swelling and/or stiffness of the area is reduced, range of motion is increased, tension is relieved, and circulation, flexibility and coordination are improved. Not the most relaxing massage out there but very effective.
As the pregnancy develops the physical body makes necessary changes and adjustments which may as a result cause a number of discomforts.
These discomforts may include, but are not isolated to the following:
- Back pain (especially the lower back)
- Neck pain and tense shoulders
- Hip and pelvic pain
- Swollen feet, ankles and hands
- Rib pain
- Swollen veins
- Skin changes / irritations
- Expanding of the abdomen
- Fatigue / exhaustion
The change of centre of gravity can stress the back, neck, shoulders and abdominal muscles. While a change of posture can result as the pelvis starts to pull forward and the ligaments that hold the pelvis in place start to relax, (making the pelvis joint less stable). This forward rotation of the pelvis, along with the weight of the baby puts additional strain on the pelvic girdle and hips, and as the curve of the back increases the knees can rotate out putting more strain on the hips and lower back.
During pregnancy the body also creates up to 50% extra blood, so along with the extra weight on the legs this can cause extra pressure on veins as they become engorged, which in turn can cause cramps and for the legs to become very sore.
If you are experiencing any of these complaints or just feel like you really need some nurturing. Let our skilled and caring hands ‘soothe away the sore’ and help you drift off into deep, blissful relaxation.
