Hot Stones Massage
Our Hot Stone massage is designed to help our patients relax and ease tension. During your massage, smooth, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body to encourage the body to detox, heal & relax. The type of stones used helps ease muscle tension and damaged soft tissues throughout your body. The stones are made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat.
The stones are placed along your spine, palms and feet. Our massage therapists hold the heated stones as they massage your body using Swedish massage techniques such as long strokes, circular movements, vibration, tapping and kneading. The combination of hot and cold stones encourages your body to detox and heal through increasing your lymphatic flow and encouraging your body to remove waste products.

- Relaxing tense muscles

- Promoting sleep

Thai Herbal Press Massage
Our Herbal Press massage uses hot bundles filled with a selection of traditional Thai herbs and spices. The bundles are steamed and gently applied to specific points of the body releasing their healing benefits into the pores of the skin. The bundles are moved along your body, helping to release muscle contractures and relax you even more, thanks to their hot pressures and their pleasant smell. This massage is combined with the therapist using their hands to massage the body, helping release muscle tension and leave you feeling relaxed.
The blend of traditional Thai herbs used in these compresses has a relaxing and invigorating effect on the body and mind, soothing sore and overworked muscles while giving the body's energy reserves a huge boost. The herbs in the bundles possess properties that are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant.
The Thai Herbal Press Massage is ideal for:
- Alleviating pain, stiff or pulled muscles & ligaments
- Skin Conditions
- Stress, Anxiety & Fatigue
- Respiratory Issues
Bamboo has earned its reputation for its holistic and soft appearance. Our massage uses solid bamboo sticks of different lengths and diameters to massage the body. The bamboo cane replaces the hand of the therapist, giving a deep and firm massage. The cane is rolled over the muscle with the same strokes they would use with their hands. The sticks are applied to give deep and long massage strokes to break down tension and stretch tight and stiff muscles.
Bamboo Massage Benefits:
- Sensory nerve perception
- Improved sleep
- Increases lymphatic drainage
- Releases endorphins
- Provides a deep sense of relaxation
Apart from relieving you of stress and tension, the bamboo massage is also known to improve the texture of your skin. The silica from bamboo extract helps your body absorb essential minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. It also offers anti-irritant properties that soothe your skin when applied directly through creams and lotions. Silica plays a great role in keeping your skin and hair healthy. Apart from this, it can even alleviate eczema and psoriasis. Bamboo extract contains antioxidants that help minimise wrinkles.
