Swedish & Deep Tissue Massage
with Carly St John
Swedish massage employs classical and deep tissue techniques to treat specific muscular ailments, relax tired, tense bodies and create a lasting sense of well being from head to toe.
Swedish massage was developed to increase the flow of oxygen in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. It is a traditional full body massage which relaxes and revives muscles, releases tension and leaves you feeling invigorated and relaxed.
Using a wide range of massage techniques a treatment will be tailored to your individual need. These can range from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods; from dynamic mobilisations to gentle Shiatsu holds.
Massage promotes a feeling of calmness. It helps to alleviate mental and emotional stress, relieves muscle tension, improves circulation and strengthens the immune system making it easier to fight off infections and illness.
Indian Head Massage
with Carly St John
At times of stress when we often neglect our physical bodies, an Indian Head Massage can bring awareness back to the body and the breath. Indian Head Massage incorporates mind, body and spirit. It is believed that three of the key energy centres can be found in the throat, brow and crown. These chakras relate to communication, intuition and spiritual awareness. As with meditation, daily worries and concerns may be given some perspective through this therapy. The treatment also helps increase the blood flow to promote hair growth.
Indian Head Massage is very effective at relieving aches, pains, stress and rebalancing the energy flow. The massage is ideal for anyone with shoulder, neck and upper body pain, headaches or migraines. The treatment covers the head, neck, shoulders, arms and face and is fundamentally about creating a sense of peace and harmony and presence.
