Massage has been around for thousands of years and is one of the oldest and simplest forms of therapy. It is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, bring relaxation, stimulate and tone the body.
Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues, the muscles, the tendons and the ligaments to improve muscle tone.
Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.
Relaxation massage, also called Swedish massage – relaxing and invigorating. Designed to help reduce stress, improve circulation and range of movement.

Hot stone therapy combines traditional massage with the use of smooth, heated basalt stones, which are applied to the body as an extension of the therapists hands. Cold stones can also be used to aid healing and this therapy is clinically known as “Geothermotherapy”. The massage is 10 times more effective than a normal massage. The warmth of these heated stones penetrates muscles and balances the nervous system like no other treatment. Crystals can be used during the treatment to help balance the body’s energy chakras.

During an Aromatherapy Massage, essential oils are mixed with a carrier oil, creating a unique blend designed to assist the client’s needs, and used for the massage. The smell of the essential oils can calm the mind and relax the nervous system, making it an extremely effective stress-relieving treatment and can leave the client feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Reflexology therapy works on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all organs, systems and glands of the body, making the feet a “mirror image” of the body.
Reflexology involves the massage and stimulation of these reflex points with the therapist using their fingers and thumbs. This pressure is applied over all the areas of the client’s feet. Crystalline deposits can build up in these reflex points causing blockages, which prevents the free flow of energy throughout the body. By applying pressure to these reflex points, the blockages can be released bringing the body back into a state of equilibrium.
