TREATMENT INFORMATION

SWEDISH FULL BODY MASSAGE
Swedish Full Body Massage is also commonly referred to as a ‘Classic’ or ‘Traditional Massage’ and is the most common form of full body massage treatment. It is performed largely undressed (client) and with oil on a professional massage couch. A Swedish Full Body Massage employs effleurage (long, gliding stokes) accompanied by petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking to benefit the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic & nervous systems.

The physiological effects and benefits of Swedish Body Massage include a reduction in muscle stiffness and fatigue, increased flexibility and range of motion, improved circulation, increased lymphatic drainage, release of endorphins (the body's natural happiness drug), improved skin and stimulation and improvement of the body's respiratory & digestive systems. Psychologically you will feel calmer and more relaxed, usually with a reduction stress, anxiety & depression, and you will feel an enhanced sense of vitality and general sense of well being.


INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Indian Head Massage is based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practised in India for in excess of 1000 years. Modern Indian Head Massage encompasses the whole head, including the face, ears, neck, upper back, shoulders and upper arms. A treatment starts with some deep muscle work on the upper back to relieve muscle tension and help to loosen and melt knots. Progression through the shoulders and arms to the neck helps to further release accumulated tension, and massage of the scalp boosts circulation and promotes healthy hair growth whilst encouraging deep feelings of relaxation and revitalisation. Finally, gentle massage of the face helps to improve circulation, skin tone, sinus problems and reduces headaches.


REIKI HEALING
Reiki is an energy healing treatment based on a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing to transfer the universal life force energy in the form of Ki (Japanese) Chi (Chinese), or Prana (Sanskrit) through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of balance and equilibrium. Recipients of a Reiki treatment often feel a reduction in stress, anxiety, sadness or physical ill health and can be left feeling totally relaxed, enlightened or may even experience an emotional release. A full consultation is carried out over a cup of tea before any Reiki treatment to learn about the client and their desired outcome from the treatment and as an opportunity to answer in detail any questions. Do keep a look out for time or day specific special offers, and feel free to call to ask any questions or discuss the most suitable treatment options for you before booking. We look forward to welcoming you to our studio. Namaste, Mikey & Chelcee :)

I had the 60 minute core Swedish massage...Absolutely fantastic! The room was lovely and welcoming, as was Mike the therapist. He created a calm, relaxing atmosphere and concentrated on the areas I needed most attention to. Great value for money. Would definitely reccomend! 5 *

I ha d a great experience. I actually went 6 months ago but forgot to write a review cos I went abroad.

Mike the therapist was such a nice person and interesting to talk to. He was a skilled massage therapist and my body fely v relaxed. He was a profesisonal and I felt I got a lot of value for what I paid because he seemed to care about his work like professional. Like he cared about actually being a good massage therapist

I recommended it to my best friend (altho he was too embarrassed to go)

I am a London based therapist and during a working week in Manchester found myself in dire need of a massage. Northern Soul Therapies came up as based somewhat close to where I was staying in Manchester, and with such reasonable prices I booked in at the earliest opportunity.

I found the building a little difficult to locate, and the exterior is not the most welcoming but do not let this put you off; once inside it is a haven of calm and serenity. Mike was attentive and friendly, and tailored the session to my needs. I am very definite about what I want from a massage, and as a therapist somewhat critical but can honestly say I highly rated this service. My back, neck and shoulders were in urgent need of attention (something I am sure every therapist understands) and as a keen kickboxer my legs were in bits. I required a deep massage, but also needed to relax. My needs were satisfactorily met and I left feeling ready to face the world (and my clients) again.

Many thanks; I will certainly look you up when I find myself in Manchester again.

Definitely don't let the exterior of the building put you off!! I had an absolutely amazing massage - Mike was amazing, he was really friendly and put me completely at ease from the moment I entered and we had a good chat about what I areas I wanted focused on during the massage etc. The treatment room was great too a lot of effort has gone into making it look inviting. I had quite a few problems going on with my back and when I left my shoulders felt so much better, it was exactly what I needed!! Definitely recommend!

This was a post marathon massage, so I was after a strong massage with me being alert, rather than a gentle relaxing one. Mike didn't disappoint.
The outside of the building is nothing special, but Mike's room was amazing. It's a large room and the sofa makes you instantly feel cosy and relaxed.
Mike talked through my massage needs and checked how comfortable I felt with having parts of my body massage, Mike always starts with a foot massage.
Mike used a range of different techniques for the massage and I felt that he knew exactly what he was doing.
Overall the massage was great, just what I needed. I felt very comfortable with Mike and would recommend him to others
