Holistic Massage

The magic of holistic massage is that it benefits the whole body by working on a mental, emotional and physical level. It is a great way to calm the mind and bring about a deep sense of relaxation. 

Holistic massage can help with tight muscles, backache, headaches, toxin removal and insomnia, and can significantly reduce stress levels. It feels great too.


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialised type of massage in the treatment and management of Lymphoedema – a condition which causes swelling in the limbs or body when the lymphatic system is not working properly. 

Increasingly cosmetic surgeons are recommending a course of MLD treatment post surgery to aid/speed healing and improve cosmetic outcomes. 

Massage Therapy

Numerous benefits for all

Did you know that 75% of illness and disease is caused by stress … and that massage therapy can significantly reduce stress levels? The power of touch has miraculous effects – for the very young and the very old, for the terminally ill and the Olympic athlete, for the school-run mum and the over-worked executive.

Research has shown that the positive effects of massage are both physiological and psychological, relaxing and healing without the aid of drugs. It can soothe anxiety and depression, encourage restful sleep, boost immunity and ease muscle pain.
