P.S. (a little secret is that I mix this all up and create a recipe specific to you each time, but we have to start somewhere!)
Therapeutic massage 60/90 mins
Advanced clinical massage can help to relieve chronic & acute conditions including low back pain, neck & shoulder pain, jaw pain (TMJ) and headaches, hip, leg & knee pain, and repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel and plantar faciitis. Also suitable for those suffering from global illness such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and IBS where a gentle approach is needed, using indirect myofascial release work. Incorporating trigger point therapy, myofascial release, hot & cold stone therapy, stretching & homecare advice.
A course of six regular 60-minute treatments over 3 to 12 weeks is recommended to see noticeable improvements. If you require a full body massage in addition to therapeutic work please book a 90 minute treatment.
Hot Stone Massage 60/90 mins
For the ultimate luxurious, relaxing and effective massage, hot stones help melt away tension, ease sore muscles and warm the body. This treatment is a fusion of flowing Swedish massage and deep tissue therapy using natural hot and cold stones.

Organic NOM NOM specialist pregnancy oils are used and available to buy from me too.
