Thai Yoga Massage

{90 mins} £68

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art that originated in India around 2,500 years ago. It works on an energy line system—the Ten Sen—through which the body’s natural life force flows. When this flow is blocked, feelings of dis-ease can arise.

The massage is performed on a floor mattress and the recipient wears loose comfortable clothing; no oil is used. The therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure and stimulate energy to specific points on the energy lines while applied yoga postures give gentle yet deep stretches. This releases blocked energy and frees the body’s healing potential, restoring balance and harmony.

The whole massage is given in a meditative state and leaves you in a deep sense of calm and profound relaxation yet also energised.

Hot Stone Massage

Warm, smooth, flat volcanic basalt stones are used to massage the body with aromatic oils to deeply relax muscles, ease tension and induce a state of calm wellbeing, bringing balance to the mind and body, and aiding natural healing.

This stimulating massage will warm and relax the muscles, relieving deep muscle pain, and increase circulation and lymphatic drainage. One massage stroke with the stone has the same effect as 8 to 10 hand strokes relieving muscle pain, increase circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Canna Massage with CBD infused candles

{1hour} £50
{90mins} £70

Using MimiMomo CBD massage candles - Hand-made and hand poured by Miranda.

The candles use outdoor grown Kush Hemp flowers cultivated in Southern Oregon which have been infused into a rich base of rich Shea Nut Butter/ Cocoa butter, Tamanu Oil, Arnica Oil and organic essential oils taking you on a journey of the senses plus a nourishing treat for your skin too!

The CBD interacts with the CBD receptors found naturally in our body and increases the communication with the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the central nervous system (CNS) creating a network of signals from the brain to the rest of the body.

Utilising CBD topically on the skin is a wonderful and direct way to absorb this wonderful plant and its benefits on a cellular level. The increased communication networks helps regulate the body promoting feelings of safety and calm resulting in increased elasticity in the skin which allows for a deeper massage to get to areas of tension built up through overexertion or emotional armouring.

Biodynamic Bodywork Therapy

1st apt {90mins} £65
Follow up {60mins} £45

Biodynamic Bodywork aims to help people cultivate balance and support them to adapt, connect and re-educate with the nature of their being.

The body holds onto experiences through memories but also forming our own “emotional armouring” which can bring both protection from feeling overwhelmed or simply because these experiences may be too difficult to digest so they sit within us. By suppressing these experiences we very often learn to live with it. In some cases this can develop into a restriction, physically, emotionally and spiritually and can cause some to retreat from ourselves and bodies completely.

Through listening and responding with a variety of different techniques Biodynamic Bodywork Therapy helps to nurture and support the release and ‘melting’ of this armouring in the muscles, bones and aura. Through small releases in the body we start creating space which allow for movement and can result in a more balanced and dynamic being.

This is a psychotherapeutic form of bodywork and the unique nature of this therapy is the use of a stethoscope which is placed on the clients abdomen during the massage. Using the sound of the “psycho peristalsis” as though we digest food we also digest emotion, experiences and sensation on another level. Through deep listening this helps us to connect to our body, this helps guide and tailor the treatment to the client to aid emotional and physical release and support.

Biodynamic Massage is great for those interested in exploring the mind-body nature connection through touch, whether it be for insight into specific bodily issues, or as a means to self-discovery and change.

Therapeutic Aims: • Rebalancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system • Relaxation • Relief of internal emotional pressure • Release of muscular tension • Toning of under-toned muscle • Increased body awareness • Release of toxins • Discovery of a more “natural” breathing pattern

I usually recommend 6 sessions to begin with for those who want to explore it for their self discovery.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

{1hour} £45

The lymphatic system is a crucial part of your immune system. Through a network of hundreds of lymph nodes, it drains fluid called lymph to be transported back into your bloodstream. It also removes bodily waste and carries white blood cells that help prevent infection.

When there’s any kind of obstruction in your lymphatic system, fluid can start to build up causing symptoms such as:- • fibromyaligia • swelling • skin disorders • fatigue • insomnia • stress • digestive problems • arthritis • migraine episodes

Manual Lymphatic Drainage can be helpful to gently stimulate and encourages the lymph to move and be expelled from the body using a sequence of rhythmic pumping action. After a session of MLD some experience the following: • fatigue • thirst • increased urination/perspiration

If you suffer from any of the following conditions,it is vital that you speak to your doctor before receiving the treatment: • acute congestive heart failure, • acute renal failure • active blood clots • active infection • active bleeding

Facial Rejuvenation

{1hour} £50

Using a combination of Indian face massage and healing techniques, pressure is applied to the scalp, face and neck for a relaxing massage. Tension is released from facial muscles, circulation is stimulated, and the skin has the feeling of being lifted.

What to expect during your session: After an initial consultation, treatment will begin by applying light pressure to help warm the muscles and ease you into a state of relaxation. Firm pressure is applied using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of the facial muscles, helping to relieve tension. I will use various massage techniques to help stimulate circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage, which will help to eliminate toxins and promote the supply of nutrients to the skin. Your facial muscles should feel relaxed and your skin feel lifted.
