Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. The movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

One hour's session of Deep Tissue Massage is £45 with, Jonathan Shaddock.

Holistic Massage

One of the first questions asked about holistic massage is "What does holistic mean?" Holistic means 'whole'. So this form of massage deals with you as a 'whole'. Like other therapies, it is not just looking to treat the symptoms, but to establish the cause, whether it be internal or external. The aim is to rebalance the body so it achieves homeostasis or balance.

A Holistic massage will last for one hour and costs £45 or £65 for 90 minutes with our therapists Allison Trott or Jonathan Shaddock.

Follow up treatments are: £45 for adults, and £40 for children.
