Holistic Massage Therapies we Offer

Swedish Massage

This technique is a combination of many different styles of massage all rolled in to one treatment that is focussed on relaxing your whole body. The hands of the masseuse push blood towards your heart, targeting knots and relieving tension in your body.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy adds another relaxing dimension to your massage. Essential oils are massaged in to your skin, and beautiful scents fill the room and your senses. Our team will listen to your needs and what you want to achieve from your massage so they can create the perfect blend.

Indian Head Massage

If you’re struggling with migraines or have a busy mind that needs a break, then an Indian head massage can be a wonderful way to unwind. In the Indian tradition the massage is focussed on relaxation, with attention also paid to your shoulders and neck.


Our experienced reflexologists understand the principles of this traditional Chinese medicine and are able to help restore balance within your body. During your treatment, pressure is applied to your ears, hands and feet.
