Relaxation Massage


When leading a busy lifestyle taking time out to recharge your batteries is vital.

Massage can help lower levels of tension and thereby reduce your stress or anxiety levels. Research has shown that massage is one of the most effective therapies in reducing stress as it lowers levels of cortisol, a neurotransmitter that increases as stress levels increase. Treatments are adjusted to meet your particular requirements ranging from focusing on tight shoulders to total relaxation using a variety of techniques!

Each appointment is broken into two distinct areas:


  • An online consultation prior to treatment
  • A separate time for actual face-to-face appointment

Together these will form your massage appointment session. This is to minimise direct contact time, triage for any contraindications and ensure optimum planning for your treatment.
