This Deep Tissue Massage uses alternative techniques taken from ancient Oriental teachings, which involves working through pressure points along the meridian lines or ‘energy pathways’. The massage uses long strokes, stretches, friction, toning and deep finger pressure directly on the areas of tension or across the fibres, tendons and fascia. It is a deeper, more intense massage helping to loosen tissues, release toxins from the muscles and improve blood and oxygen flow.
This Therapy is aimed at helping in the recovery of the sports or physically active person, and for anyone suffering from poor circulation, low energy, fatigue or depression.
Aromatherapy oils are used in this relaxing, lighter pressure massage, encompassing a number of techniques designed to relax the muscles, increase blood circulation and lymphatic drainage; to improve oxygen flow and remove toxins from the muscular system.
This light, with pumping action, massage stimulates the flow of lymph through the one-way drainage pathways, ridding excess fluid & swelling. Clients can further benefit from additional cupping therapy to initiate the parasympathetic activity and feel lighter in mind and body.
Hot Stone Therapy is a speciality and indulgent massage that uses smooth, heated stones. These Basalt stones (the ‘placement’ stones I handpicked from the beaches of St Lucia ;o) ) are a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat. The therapeutic properties come from this heat penetrating the muscle for a deeper pain relief and a sensationally relaxing experience. A customer favourite for Gift Vouchers.

Cupping therapy is an ancient method of healing where cups are placed onto the skin to create suction. This suction has a decompressing effect, which is used for the treatment of pain, injury, inflammation, relaxation and lymphatic stimulation.
