3. Relaxing Environment

Some people set up their studio like a doctor’s surgery, making it difficult to relax, while others opt for the spa approach making it difficult to treat patients. Our studio was created to be clinically focused, yet still retain a relaxing vibe. This balance ensures our clients don’t feel tense during their treatments, giving better results.

Our treatments include a full consultation allowing you the time to point out problematic areas ahead of schedule.

Massage Types

Every massage is tailored to give you maximum benefit

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a light massage treatment that involves using a combination of 5 movements: effleurage, petrissage, vibration, friction and tapotement to achieve relaxation and relief from minor levels of muscular tension. It’s perfect for people who are new to massage and not sure about the levels of pressure they can receive.

Deep Tissue Massage

As you may have guessed, deep tissue massage focuses on using firm pressure to manipulate your body’s deeper tissues. It uses a number of Swedish based techniques to loosen and breakdown stubborn knots. Deep tissue massage tends to be applied to larger muscle groups or the whole body rather that specific areas.

Back, Neck & Shoulders Massage

The most common area for muscle tension to occur is in the back, neck and shoulders areas. This is largely due to poor posture from being hunched over a desk all day. This particular type of massage uses the same strokes and level of pressure as a deep tissue treatment and applies them solely to the areas causing you trouble.

Sports Massage

Although the techniques used during sports massage do not differ to largely from those used in deep tissue, the key difference is the specificity of where they are applied. As such, even greater care is required to make sure tension is broken down without causing discomfort during the treatment.

Hot Stone Massage

Using standard massage techniques, the hands and elbows are used to relieve muscle tension. Although they are both extremely effective, there are a couple of drawbacks; through the hands there is a limit to the level of pressure that can be achieved and through the elbow, dexterity is limited. By using large, smooth stones as an extension of the hand, it allows the best of both worlds. Additionally, the extra heat helps the muscles warm up, enabling even deeper tissue layers to be worked upon.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Although most massage treatments do in some way stimulate the lymphatic system, they aren’t as thorough as they could be. This is where lymphatic drainage massage comes into the fore. By applying gentle pressure to specific areas around your body, our therapists will help you to increase circulation around your body by encouraging movement of lymph fluids around your body.

Got Questions?

A quick FAQ for anyone new to massage therapy

Is massage therapy sore?

It really depends on which type of massage treatment you book. If you’re in for any kind of relaxation based treatment then you will have no pain at all.

However, if you’re booked in for a deep-tissue massage or a sports session then the focus of the session will be to break down knots and nodules which can be a little uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to avoid pain when it comes to stubborn muscle tension. With that in mind, our experienced massage therapists will do everything they can to help you feel at ease.

What should I wear?

Sometimes, people get confused about what to wear before a massage treatment, what they should bring along with them and even how they should be covered up during. And, as a result of this confusion, many people put off getting a treatment because they don’t want to feel any kind of discomfort. Rest assured though, it’s much simpler than you think!

All you need to bring along is yourself in comfortable clothing. That’s it! When you’re receiving your treatment, you just keep your pants on and cover yourself with the towels provided and you’ll be all set.

How long should I book in for?

Most clients book in for a 60-minute massage treatment, but just because that’s the most popular doesn’t mean it’s the best option for you. Here’s a couple of things you might want to consider: 

Relaxation vs Pain Relief - some people like to lie and be pampered for 90 minutes with an aromatherapy massage - helping them to let go of any stress. However, if you just have a very specific sore point that needs released, then a 30-minute sports massage may be all you need.

Your Schedule - if you’re a busy bee, juggling studies, work or kids then it’s not always easy to fit 90-minutes into your week so you may opt for a shorter session. Alternatively though, perhaps you’ve got a week off from the chaos you’ve found some time - maybe a longer session will be just the ticket for you?!

Budget - although all our treatments have been priced for people to afford them, we understand that you may not have the money for a longer session. In which case, you can choose a shorter treatment and still get some of the benefit.

We recommend that you avoid holding out and buying one longer session, but opt in for more shorter treatments so that you don’t build up tension over time.

Should I talk during the treatment?

Some clients love to chat during their treatment. Others would rather lie down and just listen to music. There is no right or wrong answer.

Our therapists will gauge how you’re feeling and adjust how much they talk to you accordingly.

Can I fall asleep during the session?

Yes! You’ll still receive the benefits from your massage treatment even though you are asleep.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Sorry, we do not offer walk-in appointments. If you are interested in booking a massage session, click here.

How quickly will I notice results?

Right away! Although each type of massage treatment gives different results, we are confident that you will get results right away after your treatment has finished whether that is in the form of relaxation or pain relief!

How often should I get a massage?

It’s difficult to say exactly how many you need because every person is different. Some of our clients just need one session every few months, others get a treatment every week.

The best way to understand what you need is by following the expert advice of our therapists. Before and after every session, they’ll give you a clear understanding of where you’re at and help you figure out what you need to do next to achieve results going forward.

When should I avoid massage therapy?

If the following apply to you, then you should avoid booking a massage treatment: If you are sick If you’re pregnant (pre-12 weeks) If you have inflammation If you are suffering from nausea If you have bruises, wounds, rashes, or severe sunburn in areas you’d like a massage If your doctor does not recommend you receive at treatment

Do you have male and female therapists?

Yes, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with a massage treatment from the opposite gender. If you’d prefer to have a male or female massage therapist during your session then all you need to do is select the member of our team you’d prefer to work with and book in with them. Also, if you have any additional questions, scroll to the bottom of this page and send us a message.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

How do I know when the massage has ended?

You'll notice your therapist's moves will become less firm and more relaxing. After which, they will let you know your treatment has ended and they will step out of the room for a moment, allowing you to re-dress and receive your aftercare advice.

What payment methods do you offer?

Payment is always taken prior to bookings via our website booking system.

What is your cancellation policy?

Officially, our cancellation policy is that you need to give 24-hours notice before your treatment to cancel. However, if wake up the morning of your treatment and are violently sick or have an emergency situation, we’ll happily re-schedule you. Unfortunately, we can’t refund you if you forget your treatment though.

Massage Gift Vouchers Available!

Your loved ones can use their voucher on any type of massage they choose!
