Deep Tissue Massage
If you're suffering from tensions and aches that cannot be solved by a classic Swedish massage then a deep tissue massage might be the answer you're looking for! During a deep tissue massage, the pressure is stronger and concentrated on the problematic area which might lead to a little bit of discomfort. It is worth it though as it helps alleviate the pain in the long term!
Swedish massage is the most popular massage there is. It's a classic that will give you all the relaxation you need! 5 types of strokes make up the massage, the pressure can be as light or as firm as you like and it is perfect for unknotting your whole body and make you feel as light as a feather!
If you're stressed or have chronic pain and tension, a therapeutic massage may help to alleviate the pain; be it a back or abdominal massage, it will improve your physical condition and help you relax.
Contrary to the Swedish massage, a Thai massage compresses and stretches your body rather than using strokes. During your massage you will remain fully clothed and the massage therapist will apply pressure on various points, loosening your muscles and alleviating joints pain. It isn't called 'lazy yoga' for nothing!
Feeling burnt out? If you’ve been running on empty, an aromatherapy massage could be just what you need to recharge your batteries. Essential oils can do everything from energise to de-stress or re-invigorate as well as fight common aches and pains, leaving you relaxed, limber and totally chilled out.
When it comes to stretching, even the most diligent of gym bunnies are bound to run into the odd muscle pain from time to time. Whether you favour high intensity exercise or the lighter exertion of yoga, all that working up a sweat can get your limbs and ligaments seriously knotted up. The solution? Enter the sports massage.
A Turkish bath session takes place in traditional baths, and is a ritualistic experience that involves an intense massage, followed by a sudsy scrub down and full body exfoliation. A perfect way to refresh and rejuvenate, Turkish baths are said to promote good health through massage and heat therapy.
