Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils in combination with massage to encourage relaxation and balance within the body. Essential oils are pure, undiluted essences found in herbs, trees and flowers. When essential oils are applied to the skin or inhaled they interact with the body's chemistry. Each oil has a range of therapeutic effects which are used holistically to promote change in physical and emotional conditions and diseases.
Aromatherapy massage induces a state of deep relaxation and is beneficial to most people. After a full consultation the therapist will pick a combination of oils to suit your particular needs.

Deep Tissue/ Remedial Massage
Deep tissue massage works to break down adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in the muscles which can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement and inflammation. Focused pressure is used on particular points of tension, often with the therapist using forearms and elbows. Techniques such as working on specific trigger points in the muscle, stretching the muscles using muscle energy techniques and myofascial release are used in combination with hot stones to encourage increased circulation and relaxation to the muscles.
1 hour 30 minutes
THERMO-AURICULAR THERAPY (EAR CANDLES)
Quite different from conventional wax candles, an ear candle is actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils, that is painlessly inserted into the ear.
The candles are placed in the ear with the client lying on their side and generate a gentle heat and massaging effect on the eardrum. This is followed by a a facial massage concentrating on the sinus areas and a scalp massage.
Many people find the treatment relaxing. As well as the relieved feeling that comes from reduced pressure in the ears and sinuses you may experience a general calming effect.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is the ideal treat to boost your mood, circulation and immune system. Natural basalt stones are heated to a comfortable temperature and are used for massage and placed on various chakra points to encourage healthy flow of energy within the body.
Massage with hot stones feels wonderful, loosening muscles and relieving tension, warming aching muscles effectively before any deeper tissue work is carried out, helping to soothe away aches and pains and calming the mind.

Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is a therapy which has evolved from traditional ayurvedic techniques used in India to promote well-being for thousands of years. Indian head massage is a wonderful way to help you unwind and relax, reducing stress and tension. It can also improve circulation to the scalp, sooth muscular tension in the neck and shoulders and relieve tired eyes. You remain clothed and are seated in a chair for the treatment which includes massage to the shoulders, neck, arms, scalp and face. Oil is applied to the scalp and through the hair which is a lovely way to improve hair condition and a dry scalp although the massage can be performed without oil if preferred.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage has powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and immune boosting effects. It is an extremely gentle, slow and rhythmical form of massage and feels very relaxing. The massage is performed without oil and works on stimulating the lymph through vessels which lie just below the surface of the skin. Lymph carries waste away from the bodys tissues and anyone can benefit from lymphatic drainage as part of a general detoxification program and immune system boost.
Natural Face Lift Massage
Natural facelift massage is a unique massage therapy that relaxes your facial and neck muscles, helping your skin to regain elasticity while encouraging wrinkles and eyebags to diminish. The therapist works systematically on sections of the face, releasing deep seated tensions and freeing layers of connective tissue so that facial muscles can relax. The movements encourage lymphatic drainage which in turn helps to remove toxins. The result is that the skin can become softer, the eyes appear brighter, puffiness around the eyes and jaw line can be reduced and flexibility and mobility return to the face. The treatment is wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable to receive. Although a difference can usually be seen after one session the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of treatment. Specific exercises for the face are also taught.
is an ancient treatment based on Ayurvedic philosophy. 'Pinda' means poultice and 'sweda' means to sweat. The massage uses warm cloth bags dipped in oil and filled with herbs and spices such as ginger, coriander, mustard seeds and ajwain seeds to apply a gentle massage. Pindasweda is a lovely massage to indulge in during winter as it enhances immunity and vitality by increasing blood and lymphatic circulation. This makes it a good massage to choose if you are on a detox diet and it can help to increase immunity. It’s also great for exfoliating and softening the skin and really helps to ease aching joints and muscles. Pindasweda is a full body massage.
Massage during pregnancy can be of huge benefit and can help to alleviate many conditions that can be experienced. It is a very nurturing experience for both mother and baby and can help to promote a healthy happy pregnancy as well as labour and recovery period.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy in which the therapist works on the feet in order to help heal and balance the whole body. It works on the principle that each part of the body is connected to a specific reflex point on the foot and that by manipulating that reflex the rest of the organs in that zone will feel a positive benefit. The aim is to stimulate the body's own healing processes in order to keep it in balance. Reflexology encourages both relaxation, by helping the body rebuild its energy resources, and stimulation.
Reiki means universal energy. It is a very simple and gentle treatment which involves the therapist lightly placing their hands on or slightly above the various chakra or energy centres of the body and holding there for several minutes while acting as a channel for the reiki energy to pass to the client. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki is a very gentle treatment so is suitable for all and complements all other therapies or medical treatments a person may be undergoing.
The Rolls Royce of massage treatments, the healing energy of reiki is combined with a flowing massage designed to remove energy blockages and increase energy flow. Hot stones and warm towels are used and you are left with a sense of peace and well-being.
