It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries. Sports massage has three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage, and maintenance massage. Typically, sports massage techniques are fast-paced and incorporate stretching and compression movements. A sports massage therapist will use a variety of deep tissue techniques throughout a treatment which involve effleurage, petrissage, friction techniques & tapotement.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to promote healing and a feeling of well-being and relaxation in the recipient. The essential oils are extracted from the parts of herbs and plants and contain all the properties of the plants themselves.
The oil is applied in long sweeping strokes which warm the skin and muscles and prepare the body for deep tissue massage. Once the muscles are warmed, the masseur will continue with deeper massage, rolling and squeezing the skin and underlying muscles between the hands. Again, this should not be painful, but deeply relaxing. Our Aromatherapy Massage uses a specialist Aromatherapy Oil enriched with Sandalwood, Myrrh, Lavender & Frankincense to moisturise, relax and detox.

A massage of this type is defined by certain strokes that the massage therapist will use, not to mention a distinct style. In all massages of this type, the therapist is going to begin by first lubricating your skin with some massage oil; then will get to work on your skin.
The Swedish element of the treatment uses strokes, motions and pressure in the direction of blood flow into your heart. By using cross-fiber friction the therapist is able to break up any muscle knots you may have.
What you feel from a Swedish massage will vary, based on either the approach of the massage therapist or even what the client wants to accomplish during their session. A Swedish massage can feel bracing and vigorous, or it can feel gentle and relaxing. Our Swedish Massages include use of a Grapeseed Oil which has a neutral smell.
