Choose a massage that suits your needs. We offer 30, 60 & 90 minute massages in the style you prefer. See below for our list of services:
What is a Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is designed to treat specific conditions. It may be especially helpful for back and sciatic pain, neck and shoulder tension, arthritis, posture related aches and pains, sports and work related injuries. Treatment will include assessment, assisted stretching and home maintenance plan.
A 90 minute treatment is ideal for clients who wish to treat multiple problem areas and may be effectively combined with a general maintenance massage for the rest of the body. Patients who wish to have a full body remedial massage treatment are advised to book a 90 minute appointment.
A 60 minute treatment may be used to treat a specific problem area combined with a general maintenance massage for the rest of the body. Alternately, the full hour can be used to address 2-3 major problem areas.
A shorter session, such as a 30 minute appointment is best focused on a single problem area. This may include adjacent muscle groups associated with the primary problem.
What is a Relaxation Massage?
This is a soothing massage incorporating aromatherapy, acupressure and therapeutic pressure to lengthen contracted muscles and renew from head to toe. This is a particularly effective treatment for stress, overwork and symptoms of anxiety.
A 90 minute session allows enough time to deeply relax, drift into a dream-like state & emerge with a sensation of contentment, bordering on bliss!
A 60 minute relaxation massage lulls you into a state of worry free contentment, an escape from everyday life that follows you into your day.
What are Pregnancy Massages?
We use a specially built pregnancy support table that allows you to feel comfortable during your massage no matter what stage of pregnancy. This is a gentle, safe and nurturing style of massage designed to relieve postural tension, improve circulation and stimulate cell nutrition during this time of additional stress on your body. Many of our clients also find that they simply feel better about themselves and better able to stay in touch with their changing bodies by treating themselves to something luxurious when often it doesn’t feel glamorous.
Light strokes are used to stimulate the passage of lymphatic fluid, improving the flow of lymph out of tissues & back into the blood. Lymphatic massage has been found to improve immune function by increasing filtration through the lymph nodes and the elimination of wastes.
The mechanical drainage of the lymph increases the dispersal of swelling caused by injury or surgery, decreasing healing time & inflammation. Fluid retention of pregnancy & experienced by patients who have had lymph nodes removed as part of cancer treatment, also find benefit in this type of massage. People usually sleep very well after a treatment so this is a great option for those that have sleep difficulties or chronic fatigue.
