Deep tissue massage is great for treating everyday aches and pains.

Using slow and firm massage techniques which are designed to target deeper layers of muscle via a relaxing and pain-free process. Pressure is increased slowly allowing the tissues to adapt, relax and release.

Hot Stones Massage

Hot stone massage is an intense relaxing therapy, the heat of the stones diffuse down to a deeper level, allowing your body to feel more relaxed and bring balance to both your body and mind. We use soothing Eve Taylor oils and warm basalt volcanic stones to create a heavenly hot stone experience.

The stones are used, instead of the hands, to rhythmically massage the body, and encourage your body to gain a deep sense of relaxation whilst also offering a relief from tight, sore and aching muscles.

Heat is also an excellent application for aching joints and arthritis.

Pressure: Gentle-medium

Reflexology

The ancient art of reflexology involves gentle stimulation and deep massage of the reflex/pressure points in your feet through a prescribed procedure to cover all areas of the body. This non-intrusive soothing therapy gently relaxes you, aiding your body to re-boot and restore you to balance.

Gentle Release Therapy

A wonderful, gentle and powerful way to release tension and stress – that you may not realise you’re holding.

Drawing on the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) combined with acupressure and energy techniques working with cranial, lymphatic and endocrine sequences. GRT allows your body to release whatever it needs within a session.

Gentle Release Therapy uses an extremely light touch to release blocked energy and help get energy flowing more freely once again.

After treatments clients often feel lighter in both the head and abdomen and will very often be so relaxed they go and take a nap, or be so energised they get loads of work done that they have been putting off for ages! ​

Pressure: Gentle

The advertising standards agency is very rigid in what we can say about the effects of complementary therapies, however we can say that that Reflexology and Gentle Release help with relaxation, and helping relaxation helps stress.

How many health problems are made worse by stress?

GRT Spirit Points

Do you feel like you’re meandering in life? That you’re meant for greater things but you don’t know what or which direction you should take?

It is said the aligning with your destiny will bring you joy, so your destiny will be a place of contentment and happiness.

Life can sometimes get a bit messy and we can lose our way.

There are 12 Spirit Acupuncture Points and each of the points helps to free you from constructs of your life that are stopping you living in the path of your true destiny. We use Gentle Release Therapy to intuitively clear the points rather than acupuncture, This treatment is deep very powerful. Whilst it is of a spiritual nature, we have seen physical ailments resolved with this treatment too, and found it supportive for depression and anxiety.

A treatment would normally be either one two hour session or a couple of shorter treatments. One or two sessions can bring about powerful and substantial change.

Our Massage Techniques

During your massage session, several different techniques will be used at different stages of the massage to provide the best treatment. They will vary from client to client and your massage sessions.

Here are a couple of the techniques I use, explained.

Effleurage

Most commonly used at the start of a session, and its purposes are to relax my client, relax the muscles, warm the tissues, and allow the therapist to stimulate the nerves and increase lymph and blood flow, and to also sense the condition of your muscles and tissues.

 

Myofascial Release

Used to alleviate tension in the fascia (connective tissues that surround your muscles, bones, nerve and organs) due to trim, posture of inflammation. A therapist would use a thumb or elbow, whereas you may heard of using a foam roller or rolling pin at home. In both instances, this technique is applied to tight muscles and fascia in an effort to get them to ‘release’ and alleviate pain, tension, restrictions and adhesions in order to restore balance and function.

 

Muscle Energy Technique

Using a muscle’s own energy in the form of gentle isometric contractions, Muscle Energy Technique (MET) will relax the muscle via reciprocal inhibition (stretching the opposite muscle) and lengthen the muscle too. Compared to static stretching, a passive technique where the massage therapist does all the work, MET is an active technique in which you also have an active participant.

 

Soft Tissue Release

Soft Tissue Release (STR) aim is to remove physical (adhesive) restrictions in the muscle to increase its range of movement and mobility. It involves repeatedly and quickly stretching small areas of the soft tissue. Precise pressure is applied to part of the muscle which is then moved to achieve a very specific stretch.
