Remedial massage is a holistic treatment which assists the body in healing itself when it is out of balance. When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, remedial massage provides a therapeutic treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow, depending on the level of intervention required.
Remedial massage can help relieve pain caused by conditions such as sprains and strains, back and neck pain, shoulder injuries, sciatica, arthritis, fibrositis and fibromyalgia, as well as helping to assist with neurological conditions such as stress and anxiety. Remedial massage aids well-being in addition.
Remedial massage deals with both the cause of the medical problem and the symptoms.
The massage is undertaken using oil applied directly to the skin.

Bowen therapy is a gentle remedial body technique, helping the body’s own healing resources to achieve balance and harmony, resulting in lasting relief from pain and discomfort.
Bowen therapy is performed on the superficial and deep soft connective tissue of the body in the form of massage, triggering a process of releases which combine to nourish the structures around the spine and their corresponding structures, balancing the cerebro-spinal fluid and causing a profound effect on the body’s physiology and function.
Bowen therapy, in essence, is a holistic approach that treats the person as whole, treating the cause of the problems not just the symptoms. It can be used on everyone, from newborns to the elderly. As a quick treatment, it works very well with children, whose bodies tend to respond excellently.
Treatment consists of sequences of gentle pressure applied at various sites on the body. Your therapist will use light manoeuvres of muscle, tendon and ligament with no forceful manipulation. In many cases, patients experience susbstantial relief after just a few sessions.

Smell has a powerful influence on the central nervous system. It has been proven that odour influences mood, evokes emotions, counteracts stress and reduces high blood pressure. Our sense of smell is linked to the oldest most primitive part of our brain and is known to have a direct link to our feelings of wellbeing.
Aromatherapy draws on this through the use of aromatic oils, including essential oils, made from plants and flowers. Aromatherapy is used to promote psychological and physical wellbeing and to relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches and digestive problems.
When inhaled, essential oils can:
- stimulate the cortical areas of the brain associated with memory and learning,
- alter moods and feelings, and
- influence hormonal responses.

The lymphatic system is a vital part of the body. It is responsible for fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.
The lymph glands, which exist in the neck, armpits and groin (as well as in other areas of the body), are connected by a network of vessels which transplant the fluid.
The lymphatic system can become sluggish due to a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet or lack of water intake.
Lymphatic drainage is a type of gentle massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph from the tissues of the body. A specific amount of light pressure and circular movements are applied to stimulate lymph flow.
During a lymphatic drainage massage treatment, your therapist will use soft strokes over specific lymphatic channels to manually pump the fluid towards the main lymphatic organs, encouraging the body to increase circulation and cleanse the lymphatic fluid.

Reflexology is an ancient science based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet which correspond to varying organs, glands and structures in the body. By stimulating the relevant reflex points on the feet via massage, the related parts of the body can be healed.
Reflexology can help deal with stress, circulation problems, impaired immunity, digestive disorders, sleep problems, hormonal imbalances, childhood complaints such as colic or reflux, reproductive difficulties and emotional problems.
Before embarking on any treatment, we first chat to you about your lifestyle and medical problems. Your reflexologist will then work on your feet’s reflex points to correct this. It is understood that the greater the degree of tenderness felt by a patient, the more likelihood of a possible imbalance in the corresponding area of the body.
