Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue massage focuses on applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscles and fascia. This can be helpful in treating muscle and tendon injuries or alleviating pain and stiffness in major muscle groups and joints. It often requires a series of treatments to provide maximum benefits.

A half hour deep tissue massage costs £30
An hours deep tissue massage costs £50

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone massage involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The heat from the stones leads to deep relaxation and loosening of tight muscles and is ideal for those who are particularly sensitive to the cold. Hot Stone massage reduces stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and better sleep.

An hours hot stone massage costs £50
An hour and a half hot stone massage costs £70

Reflexology

Reflexology is a gentle manipulation of certain parts of the feet to stimulate sensations elsewhere in the body. It is based on the theory that different parts of the feet are connected to all organs and body systems. Reflexology is used to reduce pain, stress and anxiety. It can also improve mood and general well-being.

Reflexology sessions last 50 minutes and cost £40

Cup Massage

Cup massage is an alternative therapy that originated in China. Special cups are placed on a person’s skin using a vacuum to create suction. It is believed that this increases blood circulation, relieves muscle tension and promotes cellular repair. Cup therapy is often used by top-level athletes.

Cup massage sessions are 40 minutes and cost £30

Sports Massage

Sports massage uses firm techniques to work into tight and tender muscle tissue and release areas that have been carrying long-term muscle knots and tender points. Sports and deep tissue massage are excellent for anyone who experiences training related aches and pains. It may help you achieve your personal peak performance. Sports Massage is great in helping remove muscle stiffness following that extra hard fitness class or that new exercise routine you are using in the gym. Sports massage therapy  may also help prepare you to recover from the stresses and the strains associated with leading an active and healthy life.

A full body sports massage session lasts 1 hour and costs £45.00.
