Types of Massage

There are many different types of massage available, each massage is customizable so each time you meet with your therapist discuss what they can do for you to achieve the right outcome.

RELAXATION

Often called a Swedish massage, this type of massage is a relaxing and invigorating full body massage, using oil it involves large gentle strokes with rhythmic techniques to help with problem areas. This style of massage helps with increased circulation, it also aids with eliminating toxins from the body and soothes the nervous system. A great way to relax, rejuvenate and nurture your mind and body.

DEEP TISSUE

Deep Tissue massage is our most popular massage. This helps relieve muscle tension and muscle pain. It is great for people suffering with repetitive stress injuries. It is a therapeutic massage targeting muscle knots and specific areas in the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and connective tissue. This technique uses slower movements with deeper and more intense pressure than a relaxation massage. However, if you're feeling the pain too much please advise your therapist.

SPORTS

Sports massage is designed to prevent and treat injuries and enhance your performance as a weekend warrior. Often using faster strokes and focusing on a group of muscles that are relative to your sport, your therapist will go to work using a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues speeding up the recovery time. Even if you're not a weekend warrior but have limited movement from an old injury this type massage can help improve flexibility.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a type of massage that focuses on the feet and hands using a process called kneading and rubbing. With this technique your therapist will focus on reflex areas on your feet and hands that generally correspond with the muscles and organs of the body. It can stimulate endorphins to help reduce stress, increase the flow of energy. This is a great massage for those who stand all day.

PRE NATAL

A prenatal massage is similar to a relaxation massage. However this massage can be customised to suit the expecting mother by excluding certain areas that otherwise may be in included. . Especially later in the pregnancy you may be suffering from the everyday pregnancy issues like backache, swelling ankles and leg cramps etc. This is a great drug free way to help with your relaxation.
This is really important: A prenatal massage is NOT generally performed in the first trimester. However we may perform a massage if we have your doctor's consent provided in writing.

HOT STONES

Using warm volcanic rocks helps with loosening your muscles quickly. Hot stone massage therapy aids the client to experience deep relaxation. The therapist places heated stones on the body’s acupressure points. Once the muscle area has been warmed a relaxing massage technique is used to work away muscle tension.
Not all people can have a hot stone massage, if you suffer from heart disease or are on blood thinning medication it is best to seek a medical opinion first.

SENIORS

Massage therapy is particularly valuable for the aches and pains associated with growing older. It encourages circulation, decreases muscular stiffness and helps to decrease inflammation that may rest in the joints. Massage therapy can add to the quality of a senior’s life, both physically and emotionally.

REMEDIAL

A combination of deep tissue, stretching and trigger point massage therapy techniques. Therapeutic in nature and designed to heal particular health issues, muscle problems and injuries. This requires active participation from the client. The therapist will also perform muscle and range of motion testing.

Head and facial

The head massage technique aids to manipulate the soft tissues in your shoulders, neck and scalp. It aids in lymphatic drainage, releases tensed muscles and stimulates circulation.
