Holistic therapy treats the body as a “whole”, meaning that not only will a massage treatment pamper your physical body but it will also establish internal and external problems and provide an effective method of rebalancing. A Holistic massage is a therapeutic massage which is a hands-on therapy that affects the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the body. We offer a wide range of different massages including:
A Swedish massage is simply known as “classic massage”, including deep tissue massage and even aromatherapy massage. This is the most common type of massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury. Swedish massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including: easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins, improving blood circulation and blow flow throughout the body, helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple and improving range of motion, reducing emotional and physical stress, and more.
A Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. Despite that, it may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation. Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.
Most massage treatments will relax you, among other things. With a relaxation massage, relaxing you is the only aim.

Despite that, a relaxation massage encourages your body to digest its food, and get rid of its toxins and it will help you to sleep better.
A reflexology massage is a massage that is applied to specific reflex points on the foot. These points correspond to organs and areas of the body. The is used to induce a healing response, even alleviating some ailments. Beyond the feel-good effects of the massage, the practice and purpose go deeper than the skin and muscles. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the movements you’ll experience during a treatment. Reflexology massages can address anything from headaches to sinus problems to stomach issues. With repeated pressure and manipulation of nerve endings, reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy. This is done through moving the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses. This ultimately improves overall health and balance.
