Consultation

Stress levels will be examined to ensure the most effective treatment is offered and appropriate advice will be given to gain the most benefit from your holistic treatments.  The treatments available are suited to both men and women and can often provide relief from aches and pains that you may suffer from.


Aromatherapy

This soothing massage is one of the oldest and most effective forms of natural healing. It relaxes the mind, slowing and inducing deeper breathing to relieve mental, emotional and physical fatigue. Aromatherapy massage uses concentrated pure essences extracted naturally from herbs, flowers and other plants with different medicinal properties, known as ‘essential oils’ and these oils are blended specifically to your needs. Circulation is improved, speeding up the lymphatic flow and boosting the immune system that becomes depleted under stress; an efficient immune system prevents most illnesses. You will be given advice on essential oils that may be used at home between treatments.

Therapeutic Massage

The increased blood flow carries more oxygen and nutrients to the cells improving the health tissue.

A combination of firm, deep tissue massage, stretching movements and pressure/trigger point techniques are used.
