It is one of the oldest, most effective and natural forms of healing. Therapeutic, remedial and relaxation massage relaxes and calms the tense, anxious mind by slowing down the breathing from short, rapid breaths to more effective deep, slow breaths. This relieves mental, emotional and physical fatigue.
It improves the circulation, enabling oxygen and nutrients to pass more freely through the body and speeds up lymphatic flow, allowing accumulated waste products – or toxins – to leave the body more quickly. It loosens and relaxes tight muscles by breaking down fibrous adhesions and helps to tone weak muscles.
Each massage will leave you feeling calm, relaxed and revitalised.

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same massage strokes are used as classic massage therapy but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Where there is chronic muscle tension or injury there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limit movement and cause inflammation.
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.
