Holistic Massage

When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, holistic massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Holistic massage treats the whole-body mind and spirit. The massage therapist endeavours to identify the original biomechanical dysfunction, thus healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms.

Holistic massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons and joints. Massage therapy supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms. A lubricating medium (usually lotion or oil) is applied directly on the skin. This ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder are deeply penetrated. Passive joint stretching moves are also used.

Key benefits of Holistic Massage:

Key benefits of holistic massage include the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.

Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with holistic massage include muscle tightness and pain, arthritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, whiplash, neck and back pain, scoliosis, headaches and sports injuries.

Swedish massage

Swedish massage focuses on improving circulation of blood and lymph and relaxing superficial muscles. Choose Swedish massage for relaxation, increased circulation, pain relief, improved mood, sleep and sharper thinking.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage focuses on stretching facia and working layer by layer down to the deepest accessible muscle layer. It helps create freedom of movement by releasing adhesions and chronic muscle contractors. Choose deep tissue for chronic pain, and to improve posture and range of motion.

Hot Stone Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy is a very enjoyable and relaxing massage therapy.

During a Hot Stone massage the therapist places smooth heated stones at various points on your body from head to toe. The heat from the stones helps the muscles to relax by penetrating deep into the muscle tissue. This helps to relax the nervous system and improves circulation which helps to ease muscle tension and revitalise muscle tissue.
