No Hands Massage

{1 hour} £40

No Hands Massage is a dynamic new form of massage. It was conceived and developed over 20 years by UK massage therapist, Gerry Pyves after a traumatic injury to both wrists.

The technique involves no hands and instead uses the soft surfaces of the arms, through which pressure is applied from the whole weight of the therapist. This results in a deeper, more relaxing massage compared to conventional ones. It is often described as ‘The Gentle Giant of Massage’ in that it is immensely powerful yet pleasant at the same time.

No Hands Massage works on the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual levels and can be so powerful that you can feel the effects long after the session has finished.

The massage can be either a full body treatment or working on specific areas depending on your requirements.
