Soothe your body and your mind with an aromatherapy massage. Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage, the medicinal and the therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, revitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system enabling the body to heal itself. During a relaxing full body massage I will treat your back, shoulders, neck, legs and feet. A blend of essential oils will be tailored to your requirements.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is wonderfully relaxing. It is based on the Ayurveda system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It involves a massage to the head, face, upper back, shoulders and arms that relieves tension in the muscles; it can be relaxing, stimulating and invigorating. Indian head Massage can be done with or without oils, depending on your preference. You will be comfortably seated with towels covering your upper body or t-shirt if not using oil.
Swedish Massage gets it name from Per Henrik Ling, a Swede who, in the 1800's looked at eastern and western massage traditions and developed his own scientific system of massage movements which forms the basis of many massage techniques today. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation , decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion. It is a little more vigorous than aromatherapy massage but still truly relaxing. A carrier oil, such as almond or grape seed will be used according to your skin type or your preference.
Holistic facials are gentle facial treatments where I will cleanse, exfoliate, tone and nourish the skin. Massage and pressure points will be used in order to increase circulation, refresh skin cells and promote a glowing self. This treatment will enhance your complexion and ease away stress's leaving you feeling pampered and with an increased sense of well-being.
I will be using Neal's Yard Organic products wherever appropriate so that your skin will feel wonderful and will be therapeutic too.
While you relax with a face mask I will massage your scalp or feet.
De-Stress Scalp and Face Massage
This treatment is wonderful for de-stressing. A gentle scalp massage followed by a soothing face massage with ayurvedic pressure points will help you melt away your tensions. You can opt to have this treatment without oils if you prefer but if you do I will use a simple carrier oil which will help to moisturise your skin and hair. A De-Stress Scalp and Face Massage treatment will be balancing, soothing and will improve circulation.
