Sessions: 30Mins, 1hr or 1.5hrs
Reiki is an ancient healing system derived from Tibetan Buddhism that uses a laying on of hands to channel energy. Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words Rei – “Gods Wisdom or Higher Power” and Ki “life force energy” hence Reiki means “spiritually guided life force”. Ki is the same as chi (Chinese) and prana (Indian) which the free flowing of, is the aim of yoga, T’ai chi and Acupuncture.

Indian Head Massage
Sessions: 30Mins
Traditional Indian Head Massage is focused on the head but the western version incorporates some Swedish style massage and includes the shoulders, upper arms, neck and face.
Indian head massage is excellent for relieving stress and helping to release tension in the muscles of the upper back and neck as well as relieving congestion in the sinus. It stimulates and balances body, mind and spirit.

Japanese Facial Rejuvenation Massage
Sessions: 30Mins or 1hr
This eastern massage uses natural oils and and acupressure points to bring vitality to facial tissues, helping to relax tension held in the face, head and upper torso, cleanse the tissues of toxins, improve muscle tone, and promote healthy circulation of blood, fluids and chi (energy). This refreshing and uplifting tonic for the upper body also has a beneficial effect on the whole body.

Warm Bamboo Massage
Sessions: 30Mins or 1hr
Warm Bamboo Massage is a wonderful treatment using heated bamboo sticks of various sizes to knead and roll out knots and relax tense muscles. It is a deep tissue massage which really helps to elongate the muscles and soft tissues which can increase mobility and aid relaxation/pain relief. Combining the traditional benefits of massage with the comforting experience of heated wooden rods, it is the perfect massage to counter the effects of stress, tension and lack of rest.
