Holistic Body MassageA holistic massage is a tailored treatment that can involve techniques from a variety of therapies, such as aromatherapy and Swedish body massage, to create a massage that is unique to each individual client.
An holistic massage is usually a massage of the whole body using a vegetable oil known as carrier oil. The pace and pressure used can be adapted to work out tension, aches and pains, to soothe and relax, or to stimulate and tone the muscles and tissues. A body massage would usually include the back, neck, shoulders, arms and legs, but again this can be adapted. A 30 minute back and shoulder massage is also available for those who prefer a shorter treatment.

Treatment can range from a short invigorating pre-sport massage, to a longer treatment that works on sore, tired muscles and realignment of tissues.

Hot Stone MassageHot stone massage dates back to over three thousand years. The treatment originated in China and India, and more recently has been used by the North American Indians living in the South West states. Some native healers used heated stones to ease the discomfort of menstruation or muscle tension in other areas.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps to release tight muscles. It is generally accepted that one stroke of the heated stone is the equivalent of five strokes of the therapists hands! The benefits of hot stone massage include increased local circulation and improved blood flow to the surrounding tissues, aiding healing and greater ability to transport toxins and waste products from the area. This treatment is deeply relaxing whilst also being extremely effective in relieving muscle tension.

Deep Tissue MassageDeep Tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. It involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). Deep tissue massage is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
This type of therapy is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Techniques are used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle "knots" or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.
