Our Massage Styles

Remedial Massage

Widely regarded as an effective form of manual soft tissue therapy. Known to reduce the symptoms of pain and increase functional movement. The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work for short periods of time, but the results are definitely worth it!

Conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and many more can be eased from a Remedial Massage treatment.

Relaxation Massage

Helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.

Sports Massage

Will often utilise a variety of modalities such as remedial massage, trigger point therapy, cross fibre techniques and deep tissue work.

Pregnancy Massage

A more relaxing treatment. The massage therapist adapts their techniques to address changes a woman goes through during her pregnancy.

Pregnancy Massage is just as important for mother as it is for the child.

Please discuss your needs with our massage therapists and they will tailor a treatment for your individual changing needs during this amazing time of your life.

Hot Stones

Heat has long been used to ease muscle tension and pain. It helps increase blood flow to the affected area. It may also reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility and range of motion.

Cupping

Cups disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood to the surface. 

"Where there's stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain." 

Chinese cupping is a method of breaking up the blockages from congestion, stagnation, and blockage of Qi, or vital energy, vital fluids, phlegm, and blood, to restore the body's natural flow of energy.     

 

Infrared Sauna

There's nothing quite like a 20-minute sweat session in a sauna.

Our sauna is single person use only so you don't have to share your sweat session with anyone. Your 20 minute sweat session will help you to relax, loosen up stiff or tight muscles, reduce joint pain, and givie you some much needed time to yourself.

Here are some tips to get you started.

  • Drink water. Make sure you're hydrated before going into an infrared sauna. Drink a glass of water before your session. You can also bring water into the sauna, especially if you're sensitive to higher heats.
  • For first-time users, start with 10 to 15 minutes. You can add time each session until you reach the suggested time of 20 to 30 minutes.  Make sure to set your time. You don't want to stay in there too long and risk becoming dehydrated.
  • Clothing. How you dress is your choice. Some people will wear bathing suits, while others prefer to go in naked. We have clean towels for each session.
  • What you can do while in the sauna. Relax, read, meditate, listen to music, or visit with friends. Just don't go to sleep.
  • We recommend using the sauna three to four days per week. If you are healthy and tolerate the four days, you can use the sauna daily.

Please note:

Avoid using an infrared sauna if you've been drinking alcohol.

If you feel ill or have a fever, it's best to wait to use the sauna until you're feeling better.

Using an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat a lot, so you may feel lightheaded when you stand up. If this happens, make sure you get up slowly and sit down once you leave the sauna. Drink water immediately after finishing your session and wait for your body to cool down before doing anything else.

In extreme cases, some people may experience overheating (heat stroke and heat exhaustion) or dehydration.
If you have any health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or are under medical care, get cleared by your doctor before your first session. Even though infrared saunas have been found to be fairly safe, you don't want to take any chances when it comes to your health and safety.
