Many people, when suffering from tension, will have pain in the muscles in their back. Tension often originates from the lower part of the skull, effecting muscles in the neck and upper back. This massage uses techniques used in Swedish massage, which can be tailored to your needs. Opt for a relaxing, easy flowing massage or a deep tissue massage to ease away aches, pains and tension.

Lymphatic Drainage Treatment
£28 (40 - 45 Minutes One or two areas of the body)
£33 (60 Minutes Three areas of the body)
£40 (80 minutes Full body treatment)

A wonderfully relaxing treatment. This treatment consists of light skin manipulation and stroking movements which triggers the lymphatic system to contract more frequently. I will also use rythymic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of lymph flow. This stimulates the lymphatic vessels, which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes waste products. MLD is often described as a 'spring clean of the body'.

Although a treatment working on the whole body can be offered, it is recommended that this not be offered as the first treatment. It is important to focus on one area and work up to offering a full body treatment following several smaller treatments
