Service Description

Massage is an ancient art that has been around for millennia among many cultures, dating back to 4000BC. Massage is a hands-on treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness.

The holistic approach aims to restore balance within the body, taking into account the person's whole being not just their physical symptoms or ailments. It is a superficial, light massage aimed on alleviating muscle soreness, improving blood and lymphatic circulation. DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that addresses the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of the muscles, the tendons, connecting tissue (known as the fascia) and the muscles themselves will begin to loosen up as the toxins are once more released and blood flow and oxygen can begin to circulate. Sessions can be 30mins, 1 hour or 90mins long. Longer session allow for better results as more work can be done and more relaxation help speed up the healing process. A course of treatments is usually recommended for optimum results and for total body integration but this will vary depending on your body’s needs. 30 mins £50 60 mins £75 90 mins £105
