Swedish massage is the best known type of bodywork performed in the UK.
It can be used for relaxation and therapeutic, remedial benefits.
What you will experience during a Swedish massage
The muscles are first warmed with long gliding strokes. When your massage is for therapy faster, deeper, stronger strokes will be used to break down tension in the muscles. A massage that is for pure relaxation uses slower movements and less pressure. Each massage is tailored to your individual requirements.
Benefits of Swedish massage
- Reduces muscular tension and pain
- Improves circulation
- Boosts lymphatic circulation
- Enhances joint mobility
- Promotes an overall feeling of well-being and reduction of stress
- Helps reduce muscle soreness after exercise
Aromatherapy massage is a gentler massage, using a combination of essential oils to promote both physiological and psychological benefits. This is a wonderfully relaxing massage that can be enjoyed by anyone.
Each essential oil has its own therapeutic uses and 3 oils are carefully blended with a carrier oil to meet your needs.
What you will experience during an Aromatherapy massage
The strokes in an aromatherapy massage are long and mostly gentle. Some deeper knots can be worked on manually, although we will mostly be allowing the oils to work their “magic” on your body. You will also experience the wonderful smells of the blended oils.
Consider your timing when you book an aromatherapy treatment. It is beneficial to relax after the massage, avoid alcohol and avoid washing for 12 or more hours as the oils can continue to work for up to 24 hours.

Pain Relieving Massage
Swedish massage technique but with the inclusion of a seed based product that has been formulated to reduce inflammation. It travels through the skin in 2 minutes. This massage is ideal for anyone who suffers pain with a root cause of inflammation, e.g. arthritis, fibromyalgia, Lupus or pain following extreme exercise.
This product can be messy although it is wiped off at the end of the massage. The product does not stain clothing but we advise that you come in casual clothing – i.e. not your best suit.
