Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissue, which reduces painful contractions and spasms. Massage can also reduce nerve compression. To understand this, consider that when muscles are contracted, they sometimes compress the nerves around them.
Treatment Times: 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes

Deep Pressure Massages
Deep pressure massage is a massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage.
During a deep tissue massage, a firmer pressure is used and more specific attention is paid to muscle knots or trigger points. If you have specific muscles or trigger points that need individual attention, a deep tissue massage can help ease tension, increase the range of motion, and relieve chronic pain.
Recover faster with this type of massage. Deep tissue massage is particularly effective for those with on-going ‘chronic’ aches and pains. It does this by focusing on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
2 - Reflexology
We have more nerve endings in the feet and hands, which can help for things like balance and awareness. We become very dissociated with these key areas over time.
Reflexology is used to treat many of the same symptoms that acupuncture is used to treat, including anxiety, headaches, hormone imbalances and digestive problems. Reflexology is an instantly relaxing and soothing therapy that benefits anyone who suffers from stress and anxiety.
3 - Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is a perfect way to relieve stress and muscle tension and reset any postural problems that have developed from repetitive motions or overuse of specific muscles. A Swedish massage is a perfect solution for built-up tension and an ideal way to soothe overworked muscles.
The practitioner will look to improve flexibility by incorporating movement of the joints at the same time.
4 - Back, Neck & Shoulders Massage
Back, neck and shoulders massage is the ideal solution to muscle tension caused by knots or postural problems in the upper body. Release tension, increase your range of motion and relieve chronic pain with this essential massage.
This type of massage is ideal for those with muscular or joint problems in these areas and ideal for all body types.
Leave invigorated with whole body relaxation using a combination of lighter pressure and the use of aromatic essential oils.
Aromatherapy also specifically helps improve the skin, nervous system and body circulation.
2 - Lymphatic Drainage
The accumulation of lymph can cause swelling, congestion and pain. Lymphatic drainage massage practitioners use gentle and precise strokes to encourage the flow of lymph. If you suffer from headaches or endless congestion consider treating your symptoms with a lymphatic drainage massage.
3 - Relaxing Massage
If feeling stressed and run down, this type of massage can leave you feeling calm and rejuvenated. This is a whole body massage from top to toe including key areas such as hands and feet for better relaxation.
A relaxing massage helps eliminate accumulated muscle tension and relieves stress. Sometimes a soft, soothing massage is all you need to manage a high-stress job or a moment of exceptional tension.
4 - Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic massage is a whole body massage that uses light to firm pressure in combination with essential oils to maximise relaxation. This will help enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning and to help with improving sleep and reduce anxiety.
During a therapeutic massage, a firmer pressure is used and more specific attention is paid to muscle knots or trigger points. If you have specific muscles or trigger points that need individual attention, a therapeutic massage can help ease tension, increase range of motion and relieve chronic pain.
