Back Scrub Massage – 30 mins – £17

A back massage to relieve you of your knots and tension, with an exfoliating back scrub to thoroughly cleanse your pores.


 

Head, Shoulder & Neck Massage – 40 mins – £20

The neck & shoulders are the most common areas of the body that are prone to stiffness & accumulated tension.  The continuous build up of stress & tension in the neck & shoulder region leads to stiff necks, aching shoulders & headaches.  Desk jobs, long working hours, incorrect sitting position & poor posture can make the neck & shoulders very sore & painful.

A Head, Neck & Shoulders Massage is one of the best possible methods of curing pain in the neck & shoulders.  It helps ease pain, relieves stress & improves circulation, helping relieve tension headaches. It improves flexibility, restoring mobility & movement of the head, neck & shoulders. This massage provides deep relaxation to the stressed shoulder muscles, stimulating the flow of blood, improving function of the lymph system.

It is a natural analgesic because it stimulates the release of endorphins – the ‘feel good’ hormones – helping alleviate feelings of depression. It is an excellent stress-buster, leaving you feeling relaxed & recharged. It also helps relieve stress-related problems, including headaches, eyestrain & neck & shoulder stiffness. It provides relief from migraines & insomnia.


 

Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage – 35 mins – £25

A relaxing massage using a variety of techniques to help release the tension and stress caused by bad posture at work, such as sitting cramped over a desk, being hunched over a steering wheel or stress caused by sports activity. Massage therapy can also increase the range of motion, and can help increase the flow of endorphins, which are the natural painkillers of the body.

A back, neck and shoulder massage may is useful if you are short of time! A typical back, neck and shoulder massage takes only 30-35 minutes.


 

Traditional Body Massage – 70 mins – £40

This full body massage is to relax the entire body. It is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes. But this massage goes beyond relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

A study conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and published in The New York Times, found that volunteers who received a 45-60 minute body massage experienced significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin, a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. Volunteers also had increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu.
