I offer two types of massage, Holistic and Therapeutic. When having either massage you may choose to enjoy the added beneficial effects of aromatherapy oils.

Holistic – Gentle

Calming massage which helps you to unwind and balances the energy levels in your body. Metabolism and circulation can be improved with massage.

Holistic massage is a great treatment for helping you to release stress and feel in balance with your body once more.

Many of my clients have also found it aids the prevention or reduction of many common ailments such as migraine.

Therapeutic – Deeper

Whilst relaxation remains an essential part of the treatment, the application of therapeutic massage therapy includes advanced techniques like visceral massage and deep tissue massage techniques.

These can aid irritable bowl and muscle tension like shoulder/back aches or injuries.

Ideal for people with muscle strains or sports injuries.


The additional therapeutic benefits that essential oils provide can be used with either of the above massage techniques at no extra cost.
