A deep tissue massage does what is says and is perfectly explained by its name. It focuses on deep layers of muscles and pressure is adjusted to manipulate the deeper tissue layers in the body. The massage is efficient enough to release any newly formed or small knots and to stretch stiff muscles. Mix this with a sport massage that manipulates the soft tissue (muscle) in order to prevent or improve sports injuries and focuses on tense muscles that have built up over time or due to injury.
Massage realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue, increases and enhances blood circulation helping to relieve muscle tension, reduce soreness, flushes away the toxins and make for a faster recovery. Regular sessions will increase joint mobility and flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury during exercise
Hands Free Massage uses the forearm and elbow for a deep and effective massage, helping to relieve stiffness and improve flexibility. It can be used on specific parts of the body as required or as a full body massage, depending on your preference.
Managing to be both invigorating and deeply relaxing, Hands Free Massage improves circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system, yet also evokes a feeling of calmness and peace.
Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism.
The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
A cold stone massage is perfect for the coolness and invigoration that they seek. Athletes who have sustained injuries can also benefit from a cold stone massage. Cold constricts the blood vessels in the body and which alleviates swelling. It promotes healing and reduces pain in the injured muscles and tissues.
Hot and Cold Stones can be mixed to have the relaxing heat of the Basalt Hot Stones mixed with the invigorating coolness from the marble stones for a beautiful relaxing massage.
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that focuses on your head, neck and shoulders. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.
This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre. It can make you feel detached and serene, leave you sighing and wordless, but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain-fog and stress.
You may not experience this level of relaxation, however the treatment offers many other benefits. It may relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow. An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. It is also said the Indian Head massage can help to cure headaches (even migraine), eye strain and anxiety, some say it can help you to concentrate better at work.
This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It's likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.
A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.

“What can I say? Jane is my back fairy!!! After suffering for a long time with back pain, I had a procedure to remove a Lypoma. Unfortunately, this did not relieve any pain and after several trips to my GP, I was given the advice to take pain killers until it got worse and they’d then prescribe stronger ones. Being a very active and young woman who does not like taking medication, this was not what I wanted to hear. Jane was highly recommended to me, therefore I gave it a go, albeit a little sceptical after the doctors offering no solution. No scepticism needed though!!! A year on and I’m still pain free! No pain relief AND no pain. Jane does not only talk the talk; knowledgeable, professional and most importantly, very welcoming! The surroundings are calming and idyllic and – for me – the results were perfect! I cannot recommend her enough.”
SCIATICA / HIP PAIN
“Hi Jane, just a quick message to say thank you for sorting out my hip area problem. Fixed! Was a bit sore the next day as expected, but now lazing around in the sun in Ibiza. Done around 50km walking in a couple of days. Without your help, I couldn’t have done it! Thanks again”
“Had a hot stone massage on Monday with this very talented therapist – best hot stone massage I’ve EVER had (and I’ve had dozens!!). Worked wonders on my aches and pains and I’m still feeling lovely n loose! Highly recommend you give Jane a try”
“I visit Jane every couple of months for a massage I come away feeling completely relaxed and energised. She focuses on my aches and pains and since I have been having regular massages my general fitness level has improved.”
