Massage is manual manipulation of the skin and soft tissues using a variety of techniques depending on the outcome desired and the clients presenting conditions. Oil is used to reduce friction and increase the flow of movement.
The benefits of massage are thought to include pain relief, mood enhancement and the reduction of stress and anxiety.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The relaxing and restorative benefits of Massage are often increased if the treatments are received on a regular basis.

Often customers go on to choose a regular 'maintenance' massage either fortnightly or monthly to maintain a sense of well being.
It is advised that you drink plenty of water in the 24 hours following your massage and rest accordingly.
