We offer a range of massages at our luxury treatment rooms in Swindon which include;
Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Relaxation Massage, Indian Head Massage, Pregnancy Massage, and Swedish Massage
Each massage type is detailed below, but each and every massage you have with us will be tailored to your specific needs that day. For example, should you book a one hour Swedish Massage, but your therapist detects some knots in your shoulders, he/she will then include some deep tissue treatment (to release the muscle knots) thereby combining the benefits of the deep relaxation resulting from your Swedish massage with the therapeutic effects of the deep tissue massage.
Generally we charge for our time ie:- half hour massage is £30 and one hour session is £45, but one or two of the massages require more specific training for the Therapist so are priced a little higher.
From time to time we have special offers on our Massages, usually we advertise these on our Facebook page, which you can join here
How can regular massage help our bodies?
Massage involves two types of responses:
Mechanical responses - as a result of pressure and movement as the soft tissues are manipulated.
Reflex responses - in which the nerves respond to stimulation.
It can have an effect upon the Skeletal, Muscular, Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, Nervous, Digestive, Respiratory or Urinary Systems and can help to:-
Increase lymphatic drainage further aiding the removal of waste products.
Reduce pain by the release of endorphins (the happy hormone)
Increase joint mobility and flexibility
- Free adhesions, break down scar tissue and decrease inflammation.
- Improves muscle tone and balance, reducing the physical stress placed on bones and joints.
- It increases blood circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle.
- It promotes rapid removal of toxins and waste products from the muscle.
- Strengthens the immune system.
- Stimulates sensory receptors: this can either stimulate or soothe nerves depending on the techniques used.
- Stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, helping promote relaxation and the reduction of stress.
- Deepens respiration and improves lung capacity by relaxing any tightness in the respiratory muscles.
- Increase peristalsis in the large intestine, helping to relieve constipation, colic and gas
- Promotes digestion stimulation.
- Reduces stress and anxiety.
- Creates a feeling of well-being and enhanced self-esteem
- Promotes positive body awareness and an improved body image through relaxation
