Swedish Massage - Ladies only

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints)

Hot Stone Massage - Ladies only

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Warm Bamboo Massage - Ladies only

Heated bamboo massage is a technique for anyone wanting a relaxing and luxurious spa massage or for anyone who needs some serious deep-tissue bodywork for overworked and injured muscles. Throughout the massage, the therapist will use several different warmed pieces of compressed bamboo to work the tension out of each muscle. Long fluid strokes in different styles like Swedish, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, or neuromuscular therapy are used to stretch and compress the muscle and tissue

Ayurvedic Foot Massage

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medical system, meaning ‘science of life ‘the art of harmonious healthy living. Ayurveda explains that human beings, like the universe, are made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and space and focuses on the maintenance of physical, emotional and spiritual balance.

The marmas (vital energy points) are an important part of Ayurvedic anatomy. As with reflexology, these points correspond to internal organs and systems of the body and are worked on in all Ayurvedic treatments. There are 107 marma points, which form vital energy channels running throughout the body; some of these points are located on the legs and feet.

Ayurvedic foot massage is carried out with the use of a small three-metal bowl (vatki) or a wand, comprising a bowl with a handle attached. The metals used are copper, zinc and tin, and this sacred metal alloy (kansa) is known in Ayurveda as the ‘healing metal’. It is thought that copper may help in reducing pain and inflammation, zinc in aiding the digestive and immune systems, and tin in improving digestion and reducing headaches and insomnia.

What to expect

The treatment begins by cleansing the feet and legs. This is followed by specific moves to release tension in the feet and legs. Then, slowly and methodically, the entire feet and lower legs (toes, feet, ankles, calves and knees) are encouraged to relax through the application of massage techniques carried out with the aid of oil.

The treatment incorporates special moves performed using the kansa bowl or wand. 

Ayurvedic foot massage is a wonderfully relaxing holistic treatment that can help balance body, mind and spirit.

Head, Neck & Shoulder Massage

Most people suffer from tension in their necks and shoulders at some time in their lives, which is hardly surprising if you consider the job the neck has to do. Poor posture, bad working positions, and carrying heavy bags all conspire to make the problem worse.

This type of massage will often be done on specialised chairs that are both cushioned and ergonomically-designed to relieve pressure on the spine, hips and shoulders. They’re also fully adjustable, so people of all shapes and sizes can use them!

The benefits of Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage can include:

  • Enhanced feeling of relaxation and contentment

  • Relief from pain, eg headaches and back pain and from stress and tension

  • The release of endorphins, the body’s feel good hormones

  • Improved blood and lymph circulation

  • Increased energy levels and feels of vitality

  • Injury recovery

  • A general sense of health and well-being

Pregnancy Massage



Pregnancy is special time for all women. You body is changing all the time and it is important for you to feel nurtured as your body prepares for the birth of your baby.

If you are having any complications during your pregnancy, please speak to your midwife before coming for a massage.


 Pregnancy massage can be received either lying on  your side supported with cushions or seated, again supported with cushions. Treatments include, back,          neck & shoulder, legs & feet or a full body and can last for 20-60 minutes. All treatments can be adjusted depending on how you are feeling on the day.


Massage can be of great benefit in helping expectant mothers to prepare themselves physically and emotionally for childbirth and motherhood. It can help to:

  • Increase the circulation of blood to all areas of the body, therefore bringing       greater nutrition to the tissues including the placenta

  • reduce strain on the muscles of the lower back, abdomen and shoulders

  • reduce fluid retention

  • elevate mood due to the increased production of endorphins

  • improve the elasticity of the skin

  • increase the tone of the muscles that have become weakened and strained during pregnancy

  • stabilise hormonal levels through increased stimulation of glandular secretions

  • encourage rest and relaxation that is much needed during pregnancy

  • increase energy levels

  • soothe nerves and promote relaxation

       through sedation of the nervous system

Before I can start massaging you I would require written confirmation from your midwife or doctor that it is safe for you to have a pregnancy massage.


I can send you the form through the post to give to your midwife at your

next appointment for them to fill in and then bring with you to your first massage



A typical pregnancy massage will begin with a consultation (the first time you come) or an informal chat to see if anything has changed in your pregnancy since your last massage. Then you will lie/sit to receive your massage. After the massage you will be given time to relax and come back to your senses before you leave.
