What is massage?

 

Massage is a hands-on treatment that incorporates the therapeutic application of touch to benefit the health of muscle and connective tissue and promote overall well-being.

 

Is massage right for me?

 

Are you feeling tired and stressed, suffering from aches and pains, repetitive strains, high blood pressure, recovering from a sports injury or in need of a boost to your feelings of well being? Then massage may indeed be right for you.

 

Massage can benefit the body in a number of ways including:

 

  • the relief of pain
  • rehabilitation of sports injuries
  • reduction of stress
  • increased relaxation
  • reduced anxiety and depression
  • increased feelings of well being

What should I expect?

 

Massage is most usually performed with you lying on a massage table, although it can also be performed with you sitting in a massage chair or lying on a padded mat on the floor. For some forms of massage you keep all of your clothes on and for others you remove some or most of them.

 

If this is your first visit we will complete a detailed consultation to find out all about you and your physical injuries or conditions. You will then be shown you to the treatment room and left to undress down to your underclothes and lie under the towel provided. During your massage you will be under the towel at all times, with only the body part being worked on exposed. Try to avoid large meals or alcohol before your visit.

Which type of massage is best for me?

 

There are numerous types of massage and the one that is best for you will depend on your particular needs.

Balanced Lifestyle’s Signature Body Treatment

(1 hour) - £65 / (1 hour 30 minutes) - £85

 

Our signature body treatment involves the use of the forearms, elbows and other parts of the upper body. Techniques are taken from ancient and modern disciplines such as no hands massage, sports massage, deep tissue, Slavic massage and body sculpting. The pressure of the treatment can vary from very light to very deep depending on what your body needs.

 

One of our signature home blended Aromatherapy oils will be used within the massage, either the Restore, Revitalise or Balance blend. You have the option to take home one of our 100 ml blends suggested by our therapist to continue your experience at home for only an additional £9.99.

 

Holistic Massage (1 hour) - £58 / (1 hour 30 minutes) - £80

 

Performed regularly, holistic massage can be an effective means of stress management. Holistic massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain. It increases circulation, stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. By stimulating the skin and nervous system, it simultaneously soothes the nerves themselves.

 

Intensive Muscle Release (1 hour) - £58

 

Deep tissue massage provides pain relief from chronically tight muscles. Slow and deep massage techniques focus on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, to provide relief from long term muscle pain and promotes overall feelings of wellbeing. This type of therapy can also be geared towards athletes and the particular stresses they place on their bodies. These techniques are used to help athletes avoid injuries, cool down after exertion and, by increasing motion and flexibility, enhance their overall performance.

 

Hot Stone Massage (1 hour) - £70 / (1 hour 30 minutes) - £85

 

Hot stone massage is the ultimate in luxury massages and combines the soothing rhythms and aromas of a traditional massage with the therapeutic action of hot stones and essential oils. Hot stone massage is particularly relaxing for the mind, ideal for those suffering from anxiety, worry, stress or insomnia.

 

Total Body Experience (1 hour 30 minutes) - £80

 

As the name suggests this top to toe relaxation journey will leave you feeling totally renewed and with an unavoidably deep sense of calm. You will experience face and deep muscle back indulgence, Ayurvedic hand and foot massage, which will relieve tired or swollen hands and feet, and ease away tension. A must have gift package.
