In China, bamboo symbolises eternal youth, strength, prosperity, and peace.
This is a deep tissue workout and will leave you feeling relaxed and energised and with a sense that your muscles have been stretched, warmed and elongated.
Warm bamboo sticks of different lengths and diameters are used to massage the body. The sticks are gently applied to give deep and long massage strokes to break down tension and stretch tight muscles.
This treatment especially works well for runners and cyclists experiencing tightness in their legs, feet and IT band. It is also of great benefit to anyone suffering from shortened muscles due to postural imbalances or wants to improve their sports performance.
This type of massage is known as the oldest method of natural healing used by man. The basis of Swedish massage is the power of touch and laying hands in special movements to relax the body and alleviate pain. Used as a general wellbeing treatment, it helps to reduce physical and emotional stress, relieving pain by balancing and engaging the natural healing mechanism of the body.
Plant oils have been used for thousands of years: recorded in the Bible for treating illness and encouraging wellbeing, Hippocrates is also claimed to have said ‘that the way to health was to have an aromatic bath and scented massage every day’ and during the plague in Britain essential oils were used for their antiseptic properties. Today aromatherapy is based on selecting and blending oils individually for each client. It represents a restorative, energising and balancing treatment to help deal with the stress and strains of everyday life. Our therapist will focus on the opening of energy pathways to encourage energy flow, relaxation of the muscles and creating a sense of balance and calm for the body and mind.
Reflexology or ‘zone treatment’ is a form of complementary’ medicine that uses massage to the feet and hands, areas of which mirror corresponding parts of the body helping to combat tension and congestion. This is an individual treatment and tailored to each person depending on their physical and non-physical wellbeing. It is naturally rebalancing and restorative.
