Relaxation Massage

   30mins $49 | 60mins $85  |  90mins $120

Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscular tension, plus improves circulation and range of movement. 

This is the style of massage you’ll find performed at day spas. Your therapist will aim to relax, revive and rejuvenate you at a massage depth that does not cause discomfort. 

Swedish massage is probably the best-known form of relaxation massage. 

While relaxation massage is wonderful for you, it is less effective than the deeper styles for changing soft tissue tension. We normally recommend deeper styles when you are suffering pain and leave relaxation for when you just want to … relax!

Please discuss your needs with our massage therapists. They’ll be happy to tailor a massage solution for you that can combine relaxation massage with other styles that address your issues.

Remedial Massage

   30mins $49 | 60mins $85  |  90mins $120

Remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. When muscles and tendons become damaged, impaired, knotted, tense or immobile, remedial massage provides an effective healing treatment.

Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

If you haven’t ever experienced a quality remedial massage, we thoroughly recommend it. Remedial massage for chronic, long-standing conditions can be performed at any time. Ideally, your massage should be performed on a regular basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.

Pregnancy Massage

   30mins $49 | 60mins $85  |  90mins $120

Pregnancy massage is a combination of relaxation massage and deep tissue. The massage therapist adapts their techniques to address changes a woman goes through during her pregnancy.

For instance, in the early stages the therapist will work on relaxing the body and loosening the muscles related to stress and any niggling injuries the mother may have so these are not a concern in the later stages of the pregnancy.

In the second trimester, the therapist will change the technique to work on not only the upper body area but focus more on the lower body region, hips and legs.

As the pregnancy progress to the third trimester the treatment will accommodate more flowing movements to move any problematic fluid areas, focus on the lower body region to loosen tight muscles in preparation for the birth, and may also incorporate the arms, hands and feet in the cases of swelling.

Pregnancy Massage is just as important for mother as it is for the child.

Please discuss your needs with our massage therapists. They’ll be happy to tailor a massage solution for you that is effective as well as addressing your individual ever changing needs during this amazing time of your life.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

60mins $85  |  90mins $120

Lymphatic Massage is commonly referred to as Lymphatic Drainage. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage can also aids in the prevention of swelling after injury or surgery. It is also thought to provide a major boost to your immune system.

Lymphatic massage aims to increase the efficiency of your lymphatic and circulatory system. By reducing the volume of retained fluid and the pressure associated, it can reduce the risk of impeded circulation. This increases your circulatory system’s capacity to rapidly move out retained fluids and any toxic waste build ups. In some cases, we have found that a client feels quite “energised” post-drainage.

Lymphatic massage improves circulation, increases your metabolic rate, and. Has the potential to improve your immunity. 

Deep Tissue Massage

   30mins $49 | 60mins $85  |  90mins $120

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. 

Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as lighter styles eg Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.

A quality deep-tissue massage helps to:

  • loosen muscle tissues, 
  • release toxins from muscles, and
  • get blood and oxygen circulating properly.

A deep tissue massage is likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a lighter style Swedish massage especially if you have some large chronic knots.

Most people report unbelievable relief immediately after their very first deep tissue style massage. It is normal to feel mildly bruised in the 1-3 days following a deep massage, you may experience some soreness you can experience when you first start back into exercise and slightly overdo it. After that things will normally only get better… and you’ll feel much looser, rejuvenated and energetic.

It’s always hard to gauge just how firm your first deep tissue massage should be, so keep your massage therapist informed if you feel it is too much or too little.

It’s important to drink a lot of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. If you don’t, you’re more likely to be sore the next day.

Balinese Massage

 60mins $85  |  90mins $120

The Balinese massage is a full-body treatment, ideal for those who want to take care of their body from scalp to foot. During the treatment patients must lay on a professional massage couch; they are then gently massaged with scented oil chosen according to their preferences and type of skin. The body parts that haven’t been massaged and those already massaged are covered with a cloth not to create temperature leaps.

This technique includes gentle and relaxing strokes as well as vigorous pressure-point stimulations. The therapist starts to treat the legs, then firmly frictions the back and arms and, finally, slowly massages the scalp. Therapists use a combination of gentle stretches, skin rolling, kneading and stroking, and pressure-point stimulation, to stimulate the flow of blood, lymph and energy.

Kahuna Massage

 60mins $95  |  90mins $130

Kahuna or lomilomi massage has been practiced for thousands of years, and practitioners use it both for relaxation and as a healing art. The term “huna” means “secret knowledge” in Hawaiian, and a master practitioner of this type of massage is known as a Kahuna.

A Kahuna is also an important spiritual healer, and many practitioners start by saying a prayer or asking you to elaborate on why you have booked a session.

Additionally, Kahuna massage differs from a traditional massage in two important aspects:

  • This type of massage focuses on the practitioner’s focus and intention, and this is extremely important. The Kahuna is trained to focus — with compassion and love — on the person they’re giving a massage to, and to embody the “aloha” spirit that the Hawaiian people hold sacred.
  • The massage technique itself is very rhythmic and vigorous, and it involves the practitioner’s fingers, palms, forearms, and wrists to move in long, gliding motions along a person’s body.

Benefits of Kahuna Massage

This type of massage is supposed to help improve your circulatory, digestive, lymphatic, and respiratory systems while providing deep, relaxing massage. Additionally, this type of massage focuses on emotional and spiritual healing as well, and it is designed to help with:

  • Depression
  • Exhaustion
  • Grief
  • Stress

The massage itself is more person-focused, and you should leave the session not only feeling better in your body, but your mind and spirit should feel at ease as well. You don’t have to have an in-depth understanding of the massage’s history to benefit from it either. The Kahuna works to balance your internal energies, and this is incorporated in all of the sectors of this massage. For example, ‘hu’ refers to your male energy and ‘na’ refers to your female energy.
