Pregnancy Massage
Blending Shiatsu techniques with Swedish massage, this treatment is designed to support you through the physical and emotional demands of pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. Relaxing and restorative, it is also an excellent treatment for encouraging labour to start and for post-natal recovery. Meridians and shiatsu points are gently worked with thumbs or palms to relax and rebalance mind and body and to help alleviate specific pregnancy related symptoms.

Indian Champissage – Indian head massage

This treatment is given while you are seated, over your clothes. It is  a relaxing, soothing therapy based on the ancient Ayurvedic system of health and wellbeing. It aims to stimulate circulation, disperse toxins, improve joint mobility and reduce stress and tension.
