These reflex points relate to specific organs and systems of the body. Benefits can include relief of pain, relief of anxiety, tension and stress and encouraging deep relaxation.

Swedish Massage is used to relieve muscle tension and for relaxation. Long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart aid circulation and promote lymphatic return. These gentle techniques are good for increasing oxygen levels in the area treated and removing toxins from the surrounding tissues.

Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain and injury rehabilitation. The list of conditions that can be effectively treated is extensive and includes whiplash and repetitive strain, postural problems and sciatica, sports injury and recovery from falls, muscle tension or spasm in the glutes, hamstrings, quads, rhomboids, IT band and upper back. The benefits aren’t just muscle and pain-related, deep tissue massage treatment can lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormone levels.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It provides healing on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  Benefits include reducing stress, promoting relaxation, feelings of peace, security and well-being. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and help promote recovery. The client remains fully clothed, usually lying on a massage table or is seated or even standing. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet.

What to expect

At the initial consultation a detailed medical history, including lifestyle questions, will be taken to allow us to tailor your treatment. This will also be an opportunity to discuss which treatment is most suitable.

After treatment we will discuss after-care and give suggestions as to how often you/the client may need/wish additional treatment.
