Body Massages & Crystal Therapy #01

Holistic Massage - £40

Holistic (or Swedish) Massage involves the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments) using the hands in a gentle, flowing massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It is most commonly used for relaxation, improving well-being and lymphatic drainage.

Natural oils are used to soften and moisturise the skin and aid the massage process - these are chosen and mixed to suit your skin type. Oils used may include sunflower, olive, avocado, coconut, almond, cottonseed, soya, wheatgerm. Sound good enough to eat? They are all cold pressed oils, and you could certainly use them in cooking - this means that they nourish the skin as well as lubricating it!

Holistic Massage is a full body therapy and you will need to undress - your privacy and modesty are respected throughout the session. Men and women are equally welcome as clients.

Aromatherapy Massage - £40

Aromatherapy Massage is a gentle, soothing treatment which will help the skin absorb the oils chosen.

Your session opens with a consultation which allows you to talk about how you feel and what you are looking for from your aromatherapy massage. You will be invited to smell a selection of aromatic essential oils, and choose the ones which you enjoy and which will help address any issues you have come to help resolve. Your essential oils are freshly blended with carrier oils to suit your skin.

This is a full body massage so you will need to undress - your modesty and privacy are respected throughout and men and women are equally welcome as clients.

Body Massages & Crystal Therapy #02

Japanese Hot Stone Therapy - £45

Hot Stone Therapy uses energy-charged and heated oiled basalt stones combined with body massage using traditional Japanese anma techniques to bring about deep relaxation and achieve balance in the flow of vital energy, or ki, through the meridian system. Chemical release is achieved within all the systems of the body, and the use of natural stones and traditional Japanese massage techniques recharges our subtle energies.

I offer you a 90 minute session offering you a long and relaxing massage including consultation, follow-up and feedback time.

The therapy uses the elements of nature to produce a massage which works on both the physical and the subtle energy level - the black basalt stones come from the earth, the fire element is introduced by the stone heater and candles used to gently light the space, and water is used to heat the stones. Natural carrier and essential oils add a further dimension, lubricating the stones and bringing the physical, mental and emotional and energy aspects of plants to the therapy to relax you profoundly and enable deep healing to take place.

The stones themselves are carefully prepared for the treatment, washed and treated with oils and then cleansed after each session. They are regularly recharged with natural salts, and by being laid in natural sun or moonlight. They work hard and are treated with respect by the Hot Stone therapist, who relies on their ability to hold heat and ki, or vital energy, in order to carry out this queen of massage therapies effectively.

The stones are used in two important ways in Hot Stone Therapy. They are laid out along the line of the Conception Meridian in order to balance your energies during the massage and the stones are also used to carry out massage movements in order to work on the muscles and other tissues of the body. Finally, they are tucked under areas which need a little warmth and stimulation whilst the massage continues elsewhere.

The massage element of Hot Stone Therapy is subtle but powerful - it is said that one massage stroke with a hot stone provides the same benefits as ten strokes with the hands alone!

Japanese Hot Stone Therapy is safe and effective, but if you have any pre-existing conditions or are being cared for by your doctor because of illness, then please do ask them whether it is safe for you.

Body Massages & Crystal Therapy #03

Ayurveda Indian Massage - £40

Ayurveda means ‘the wisdom of life’ and is the name given to an ancient Indian system for achieving and maintaining optimum health and balance. Ayurveda has several arms – yoga, herbs, diet, essential oils and massage. In India, Ayurvedic doctors train for many years to diagnose and treat imbalances and illnesses, and this traditional form of healing is used alongside orthodox, Western medicine.

Your session opens with a consultation to determine your energetic balance, or tridosha and traditional oils are selected to suit you.

Ayurveda has its own massage techniques which are deep but gentle to receive, and this is a subtle therapy which both balances the energetic level of the person and works on the muscles and other tissues to bring deep relaxation and freedom from tension.

This is a full body massage which both men and women will enjoy. Your privacy and modesty are respected.

Ayurveda Body Massage is a wonderful choice for yoga practitioners as it is part of the same philosophy!

Himalayan Salt Stone & Crystal Therapy £45


Our full body Himalayan Salt Stone & Crystal Therapy is an exciting new treatment which combines the benefits of heated stones with the unique qualities of Himalayan salt.
The warm Himalayan Salt Stones deeply relax you and help balance the central nervous system. They are hand carved salt crystals from one of the most pristine environments in the world – salt caves deep below the Himalayan Mountains.

The massage treatment combines Ayurvedic massage techniques, thermal therapy, salt therapy, marma point pressure work and the healing qualities of crystals and gemstones.
The salt stones and hot rocks are warmed dry and are used to massage you using traditional Ayurvedic techniques, and to lay on strategic points and in specific combinations to balance the body's energy pathways and electromagnetic field. This results in very deep relaxation and may improve sleep and reduce inflammation in addition to mild detoxification and exfoliation. The crystals are used in layouts to provide a layer of subtle and spiritual healing.

The heat from the hot stones penetrates to a deeper level than we can achieve with manual massage, bringing about physiological changes as well as influencing the body's internal energy flow (prana) – this brings about rebalance to the whole person. Coconut and jojoba oils are used to give slip and nourish the skin during the treatment.

The Himalayan Salt stones can also be chilled and used cold, and this brings a different range of benefits. Cold stones are excellent to ease decongestion e.g. deep tissue inflammation or sinus problems. They assist the reduction of erythema (redness) and soothe irritation which may occur to sensitive skins during a hot stone treatment. They are delicious on a hot day, and one or two stones used at the end of a treatment will help you come gently back.

The crystals each have their own special qualities – Crystal Therapy is a speciality in its own right, and in this treatment crystals are used to bring balance and add an extra layer of subtle healing to your massage session.

Massage is a perfect way to nurture our bodies and ourselves. Incorporating stones and crystals into a treatment enhances the power of this contact.

Body Massages & Crystal Therapy #04

Crystal Therapy - £30

Crystal therapy uses gemstones in a variety of different layouts on or around the client to help balance the subtle energies and enable the person to achieve harmony and move towards a healthier state of mind, body and soul.

Gemstones have been used in subtle energy and bodywork for many centuries, and are an element of Indian Ayurveda - this is how I came to learn about them.

A full consultation is carried out before the session, and stones are chosen which the client is drawn to and which suit the needs which have emerged during the consultation.


If you wish to combine Crystal Therapy with Reiki or with a Holistic Massage, then please ask during your consultation or when booking - the cost will be £40. Phone 07976 610799 to book or click the email link


Deep Tissue Massage - £40

Sports or Deep Tissue Massage will help prepare you for an event, and help prevent onset of muscle soreness afterwards.

Special techniques are used to reach deep into the tissues, and any athlete or sports person will benefit from a treatment before or after an event.

Regular sessions will help keep you supple, comfortable and hopefully free of injury!
