Full Body Massage Women Only or by Referral

After smoking and obesity, stress ranks as one of the most damaging factors contributing to ill health and premature ageing – but dealing with it is one of the toughest factors. Numerous studies have shown, however, that a massage lowers the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. It also appears to trigger the release of natural pain killers, called opioids in the brain, speeding up the flow of oxytocin, a hormone that relaxes muscles and encourages feelings of calmness and contentment.

Swedish massage includes long relaxing strokes, kneading, friction and deep tissue manipulation. By massaging the skin, the body’s largest organ, a chain reaction is set up that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It benefits the nerves, muscles, glands and circulation. Swedish massage helps release your body of unwanted strain and stress, leaving you feeling rested and deeply relaxed, or even invigorated.

Please note body massage requirements: Clients are required to undress to their level of comfort but underwear must be worn throughout the massage. Towels will be provided so that you can cover yourself prior to the massage. The practitioner will then enter the room and begin working on the client, only uncovering parts of the body as they are worked on. This serves two purposes: the client will remain warm and their modesty will be protected. There are no exceptions to this rule.
