reflexologyMassage is ideal for reducing stress and tension, relaxing muscles and promoting a sense of wellbeing. This treatment is all about calming the nerves, re-balancing the body and providing a place and time for you to recover from the pressures of everyday life. The massage environment is always important, but particularly so for a relaxation massage. A warm, tranquil room, relaxing music all contribute towards enhancing the atmosphere and making the massage special.

Nafisa will work with you as an individual.If you have chronically tense muscles she will focus on Deep Tissue massage which is especially effective on stiff ‘trouble spots’ in your body i.e. shoulders, stiff neck or lower back. This style would focus on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.  Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation and ease muscle tension. So the combination of the two would invigorate and relax but also help at alleviating tension areas.  During the treatment where necessary she will focus on Acupressure points or meridians, these are points that carry energy throughout the body and relieve pain. It eases muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body.

It can also help to relieve sinus problems, eyestrain, headache and insomnia, helps with lymph drainage and improves circulation to the face.  They are also offered as individual treatments if required or in the Signature packages.

During pregnancy, your body goes through major changes. Pregnancy massage can help with these changes by reducing stress, decreasing arm and leg swelling, and relieving muscle and joint pain. Massage may be particularly helpful during a time when medication and other medical options may be more limited. The use of towels or massage pillows will help get you into a comfortable position for this type of massage.   Please see the pre & postnatal page for more information.
