Enhance your athletic performance with a deep tissue massage combined with sports stretches to increase your body’s range of motion, endurance, speed of response and flexibility for your upcoming game, or to relax and recuperate after the exertion of sports and reduce your recovery time. For gym clients we generally recommend getting a massage after working out. Because our therapists work closely with our trainers, this enables our team to devise a regime for you that will ensure you reach your goals.
Long gliding strokes, kneading and friction on the more superficial muscle layers improve blood flow to the soft tissues, increase circulation and alleviate muscle tension. Whilst deep tissue tends to get more “to the heart of the matter” by relieving chronic pain, Swedish massage is more about overall relaxation.

The therapist uses glass cups to apply suction to the surface of the body to draw out pathogens and invigorate the body’s qi (energy flow). Provided in combination with massage or as a 30 minute cupping only treatment.
Shiatsu Massage provides a form of acupressure where the massage therapist applies pressure by using their fingers, thumbs, palms, elbows and knees to acupressure points (tsubo) along energy pathways (meridians) that correspond with the body’s vital organs. This imparts relaxation and pain relief by balancing the body’s energy flow (qi). Stretching, rocking and mobilization is also included with Shiatsu.
Affectionately dubbed “lazy man’s yoga”, this approximately 2,500-year-old art form is traditionally performed fully clothed on a padded mat (though it can be performed on the table) and is suitable for those in search of a more energizing massage experience. The client wears loose and comfortable attire such as sportswear to facilitate the series of assisted poses, stretches and compressions. The practitioner uses their forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create increased flexibility, energy (by opening up the body’s energy/sen lines) and better postural alignment. A much sought after modality due to its multitude of benefits, we are proud to be among the few in the area to offer this unique therapy.
If you wish, our therapists can also blend Thai massage with other modalities such as deep tissue to customize the perfect massage experience for you.
This massage is both therapeutic and relaxing. It focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and the network of connective tissue surrounding the muscles and bones. This makes deep tissue massage the ideal choice for those suffering from chronic pain such as repetitive strain injuries, sciatica and any other kind of muscle tension or spasm.
Slower than other massage techniques to warm the tissue before going deeper, deep tissue massage can be performed with a variety of pressures (to your comfort level) to break down adhesions and knots, the painful rigid tissue caused by tension.
There may be some discomfort while performing these techniques on particularly tense areas and your body may feel like it does post-workout for a day or two afterwards. However, this tends to abate as you get it done more often, and ultimately clients experience extensive and often lasting relief of their symptoms. Ideally, as with any bodywork, this massage should be performed on a regular basis in order to maintain your body and prevent it from becoming accustomed to holding itself in a tense state.
We are all made up of energy and in Reiki energy healing the practitioner fills themselves with the energy around them and subsequently transmits it to the client through their hands. The aim is to enhance the client’s own healing abilities, induce relaxation and reduce pain. Depending on their level of openness and their rapport with the practitioner, each client may experience this differently. Often, it can be described as a tingling yet soothing sensation where the practitioner’s hands heat up to soothe tension and bring about relaxation. For Reiki practitioners Reiki generally flows through their hands whenever they perform any type of healing work.
If you would like Reiki to be part of your massage, please request one of our Reiki practitioners during the booking process. This is also available as a 1-hour standalone treatment
Utilizes moist heat packs to provide heat to the areas of your body that are being treated. Adding the heat packs along with your massage helps to increase blood flow which relaxes the muscles, reduces pain, and promotes healing. This allows the massage therapist to work deeper and specific to the affected area. Adding heat packs to your massage can be used in combination with deep tissue massage and for relaxation. Other massage types can be used upon request. Available for 60-minute and 90-minute massage sessions.
Appointments must be made a day ahead of time for this specific treatment.
Add essential oils to any of our massages to enhance your psychological and physical wellbeing.
Reflexology involves applying thumb pressure to reflex points on the feet that correspond to parts of the body, resulting in relaxation, balancing and healing. It can also be performed on the hands and ears.
Available as a full 1-hour treatment blended with Reiki or as a 30-minute add-on to any treatment.
This is a stretching technique where the therapist slowly stretches the fascia, a fine network of connective tissue surrounding the body’s muscles and organs, guided by the patient’s response. Injured muscle fibers and trauma result in shortened and tightened fascia, causing pain and tension. Myofascial release causes the fascia to relax and unwind for soothing pain relief.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular stretching is a sports massage technique used to increase range of motion, thus improving motor performance and rehabilitation.
This technique can be incorporated into any massage to relieve the sore knots that refer pain to other parts of the body. Finger pressure around and on these knots, starting slowly until the knot “invites you in”, is used to relax them.
