Indian Head Massage

Price – €45

Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over 1000 years. Traditionally

the techniques were restricted to the head and hair, to improve scalp and hair condition of Indian women. Nowadays a system incorporating the upper back, shoulders, neck, upper arms and face, has evolved in the belief that these are important energy centres in the body and by treating these the whole body can benefit.

 

Facials (Males, Females & Teens)

A Holistic Facial contains the same principles as a regular Facial in that a routine of cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and the application of a facial mask and moisturising is followed. Yet it takes a holistic approach concentrating on the person as a whole, this relaxing treatment also encompasses a shoulder, neck and face massage…pure bliss!!

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage

Price – €60

Lomi lomi is an ancient Hawaiian healing art that was practiced within families,
by master shamans (kahuna) & kupuna (elders). This ancient wisdom was passed down within families or from kahuna to student in the Hawaiian style of teaching which is very different to how we teach & learn today.

The purpose of this massage was always to heal, to align, to balance all aspects of self – to create PONO – and it is given & received in the gentle & powerful spirit of Aloha. It is a sacred dance between giver & receiver, between spirit & body, always respecting & asking permission & allowing that to unfold which the person is ready for.

Lomi Lomi Nui (temple-style) is characterised by its flow, use of forearms in a rhythmic “dance” all around the body, connecting with the breath (HA) and using the principles of HUNA (Hawaiian esoteric knowledge) to bring about profound healing of body, mind & spirit.

Pregnancy Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage

Price – €55

Lomi Lomi Pregnancy Massage is a beautiful, flowing treatment that encompasses a loving touch to relax & balance mother & baby during this special treatment.  Based on the same principles as Lomi Lomi this massage not only affords Mother and baby the same benefits as Lomi Lomi but also ensures a specifically tailored treatment to ensure comfort of both, during this truly relaxing experience.

Reflexology

Price – €45

Reflexology is a gentle and effective therapeutic treatment applied to the feet and sometimes to the hands. Reflexology is a holistic healing technique that aims to treat the individual as a whole, in order to induce a state of balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit.

Reflexology is based on the belief that there are reflex areas on the feet (and hands) corresponding to all the parts of the body including major organs. The therapist stimulates and works these organs and systems through the reflexes, applying pressure to the feet with thumb and fingers.

Reflexology can bring relief to a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions and is suitable for all ages, including children. Once the body has been rebalanced, regular treatments can help to maintain health and general well-being.

 

 

Reiki

Price – €45

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.  Therefore, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

 

Swedish Massage Full Body

Price – €50

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage, it involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles.  Swedish massage therapy can be both relaxing and energizing, it increases blood circulation, easing the tension in the body’s muscles and improving the muscles’ flexibility. It stimulates the skin as well as the nervous system to soothe the nerves, reducing both emotional and physical stress.

Our Chartered Physiotherapists are trained in a variety of different massage therapies and techniques but in short, our massage therapy involves applying deep pressure on concentrated areas of tension and pain. Generally with muscle tension or an injury, there will be adhesions (areas of painful rigid tissue) in the muscle, ligament or tendon that cause pain and inflammation.

Our Physiotherapists have the necessary training and knowledge to get deeper into the muscle layers to break down these adhesions and restore normal muscle function as well as relieving pain. Saying that, we make sure the pressure applied is not overly uncomfortable as your comfort is important to us.

Bookings can be made by calling 074 91 24424 or by booking online at Massage Services.
