A full body massage involves the use of a combination of massage treatments based on what is deemed to be most suitable for the client. These treatments include holistic (good for emotional well being), lymphatic drainage massage (stimulation of lymph vessels to remove toxins from the body), Indian head massage and deep massage (treatment of injuries, removal of waste and scar tissue).
Body massage has benefits that are both psychological as well as physiological and is often the best treatment for conditions ranging from back pain, muscle tightness, sciatica and digestive problems or emotional problems such as stress and depression.
Individuals often seek other treatment such as physiotherapy, osteopathy or surgery without getting any benefit whereas they could have received some benefit from just one massage treatment. As well as this massage is useful in the battle to avoid future injuries.
The different strokes that the massage therapists use stimulate blood circulation in order to increase the rate at which toxins and waste products are removed from the body. Deep techniques reduce scar tissue and separate muscle fibres (adhesions), allowing for increased muscle flexibility and improved muscle function as well as greater joint mobility, allowing for less potential of future injuries occurring.
Massage also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which can have a positive effect on conditions such as high blood pressure, migraines and insomnia. Massage also relaxes muscles which can reduce pain as it prevents muscle fibres gripping onto nerves.

Scalp Massage (follicle stimulation)
A scalp massage is a head massage designed to relax the mind and encourage circulation. Many times, tension is felt within the head and neck, so scalp massages can be very much effective as a stress reducer. Warm oil is massaged throughout the scalp, working to relax tight muscles in the temple and neck regions.
The benefits of having a Scalp massage, may include stress relief, reduction in headaches and migraines, and boost in blood flow stimulation. The increase in blood flow aids in feeding and strengthening the hair follicles, which may cause the hair to grow at a faster rate, as well as aid in the fight to avoid hair loss. When your scalp is massaged, the rest of you relaxes, too.
As with any good massage, a scalp massage with tried-and-true techniques can turn a feel-good rub into something with greater benefits. Experts suggest massaging with fingertips and palms as well as using acupressure, which involves applying finger pressure on certain points on the head. Like acupuncture, acupressure is based on the idea that lines of energy (called meridians) run throughout the body and that blockages along these lines cause discomfort, fatigue, and even illness. It's thought that applying pressure on key points along the lines releases the blocked energy, remedying the problem. To enhance the relaxation effects of the massage, breathe deeply.

The effective way of removing Cellulite
Ultrasound stimulation of the fat cells beneath the skin has the effect of eliminating the toxins which have become rigid within the tissues, and which cause the unsightly orange peel effect known as cellulite. . Therapy is sensation free, relaxing and very comfortable, giving unrivalled results.
Ultrasound refers to sound waves whose frequency is beyond the ability of the human ear to hear. These Ultrasound waves cause minute vibration within the molecules of the fat cells beneath the skin, creating a micro-massaging effect. Heat is produced at the point of the treatment and the rigid toxin deposits around the fat cells are broken down dispersing the cellulite.
The Complete Treatment
The full Ultrasound treatment requires the use of the Ultrasound machine, together with a specialized massage. The combination of these techniques effectively breaks down then eliminates the calcified deposits. Each treatment last about one hour and we would recommend a client takes a course of between 12 to 15 treatments with a top up every 4-6 weeks.
Treatment starts with body brushing for approximately five minutes to stimulate the circulation and exfoliate the area to be treated. The next step involves a brief massage using special movements to warm the tissues and stimulate lymphatic drainage.
The Ultrasound is then used for between twenty and thirty minutes depending upon which programme is chosen. The therapist simply applies water soluble gel which allows the Ultrasound wave to penetrate and moves the head of the unit in small circular upward and inward movements
In the final part of the treatment, the therapist carries out approximately twenty minutes of deep lymphatic massage designed to move the broken-down calcified deposits away to the nearest lymph nodes for natural elimination. We have devised a very precise series of movements for the best effect, and the therapist will feel a distinct popping sensation as she works the deposits away.

G5 Deep Therapy Massage
G5 is a name known internationally for deep tissue massage and cosmetic benefits for those wishing to improve the contour of the skin. It is a mechanical massager that goes much deeper than the therapist can. Different heads are used to mimic different massage techniques.
Massage with this type of appliance is much heavier work on large and bulky areas of the body. The massage head is driven to turn in gyratory motions, moving round and round, up and down and side to side with pressure, providing a deep massage.
