|Hot Stone Massage
Full Body-90mins £60
Back Neck & Shoulders-45mins £45
Hot stone massage dates back to over 3000 years ago in India and China. Basalt stones, formed from the cooled lava of erupted volcanoes, are placed on certain parts of the body over a towel, to help restore and balance the body's energy flow, as well as being used for the massage. The heat from the stones warms the skin and relaxes muscles, allowing for the absorption of "your unique blend" of essential oils, creating a deep, relaxing, energising, uplifting and stress reducing treatment.
The benefits of hot stone massage are to help improve circulation and detoxification, muscular aches, pains and tension, headaches, sinus congestion, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, back pain, stress, insomnia and can also stimulate metabolism.

Aromatherapy is the controlled use of natural essential oils from aromatic plants, many of which have been used for thousands of years, to promote emotional & physical balance and well-being; the Egyptians embalmed mummies with them! The oils are introduced into the body in a variety of different ways, the most popular being through the skin and by inhalation.
As essential oil molecules are minute, they are able to be absorbed into the bloodstream, through hair follicles and sweat glands in the skin and via the alveoli in the lungs. When inhaled, they also travel via the nose to the limbic system in the brain, which controls mood, memory and emotion, therefore being able to have an effect on thebrain. The circulatory system carries the oils in the blood to the cells of the body, affecting body systems, enabling relaxation, stimulation, stress relief, improved circulation, detoxification etc., depending on which oils are used.
Before a treatment
It is very important that you shower or bathe and apply no creams, make-up or lotions, to ensure maximum absorption of the essentialoils, to obtain maximum benefits of the treatment. (You can leave on eye make-up.)
“Your unique blend”
After taking a thorough confidential consultation “your unique blend” will be chosen for you, taking into account your emotional and physical well-being and how you would like to benefit from the treatment.
For aromatherapy and swiss reflex treatments, this blend will also be made up for you, combined with a cream, lotion or oil for you to use at home, enhancing the treatment and benefits.
It is important to follow these guidelines, to obtain maximum benefit
from your treatment and to help avoid any adverse reactions.

have been released)
- Avoid anything strenuous or stressful
