Holistic Therapies

Holistic Massage

A tailored massage using the holistic approach (holistic comes from the Greek word 'holos' meaning all or entire), which takes into account your physical, mental and emotional well-being combined with traditional Swedish massage techniques.

A combination of long even gliding strokes, lifting muscles up and away from the bones, rolling and squeezing are also used. All movements are applied in the direction of the heart and lymphatic flow. There is no set routine to the massage; treatment is changed and adapted to the individual.

Benefits of Holistic Massage include; increased mobility and flexibility. Improved circulation and skin tone. Enhanced sleep, duration and quality. Improved level of concentration, relief from symptoms of stress and tension. Increased energy levels, reduction in anxiety/depression and an improved feeling of well-being.

Aromatherapy Massage

A light, calming massage using blended aromatherapy oils, this massage is personally tailored to the individual needs. This massage will treat all the areas of the body most prone to stress and tension, such as the back, shoulders and neck, along with the upper and lower legs, arms and hands. The blend of incredible oils and the luxurious massage will send you into complete relaxation and you will leave feeling renewed.

Massage with Sound Meditation

Whilst receiving a therapeutic massage, there will be Tibetan bells and at times humming to the healing vibration. This old Tibetan meditation technique is designed to harmonise the entire body to the deepest cells. This massage and meditation combination is deeply integrating and a healing experience.

Chakra Balancing Massage

In this massage you receive a tune in and psychic reading of your Chakras. The awareness and sensing of your Chakras have a balancing and cleansing effect on the entire body. You will receive a gentle and deep massage to enhance a balanced energy flow throughout your Chakra alignment system, leaving you energised and relaxed.


Reflexology is a non-invasive holistic treatment. It is based on the belief that there are reflex zones in the feet and hands which correspond to all organs and systems of the body, the whole body being mapped out on the feet. Illness, injury or stress can create imbalance in your body affecting vital energy channels, which may become congested or blocked, stopping the body functioning efficiently. Reflexology is a profoundly relaxing treatment that can help restore a feeling of well-being to the body and mind.

During a typical session a detailed medical history will be taken. You will be asked to lie on a couch and remove footwear and socks. Reflexology techniques are used to promote deep relaxation, which can activate your body's own self-healing system and help achieve a natural state of balance. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
