Foot reflexology is one of the oldest treatments known to human kind, practiced for thousands of years all over the world. Its basic concept is that every point or part of the foot is directly related to other part of the body. In this way we can treat the whole body by treating the correlated points on the foot.

SWEDISH BODY MASSAGE
A classic full body massage using coconut oil, helping to release tight muscles, circulate the blood & reduce tension. The Swedish massage is not about focusing on certain groups of muscles but more on the whole body.

A Swedish massage is a good fit for beginners to massage therapies. Acupuncture / etheric oils / hot cups can be added to this treatment.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
"Thai massage" or "Thai yoga massage" is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and you will remain clothed. There is constant body contact, but rather than muscle massage, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. The massage generally follows designated energy lines in the body, called Nadi’s. The gentle stimulation of these lines relaxes the body, unleashing the life force within you.
Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy using base oils or lotions that contain essential oils (highly concentrated plant based oils). During aromatherapy massage you inhale these essential oil molecules & absorb them through your skin. Oils promote beneficial changes in your mind & body by affecting the limbic system, a region in the brain that influences our nervous system.
The Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage:
During aromatherapy massage, the skin is warmed and the blood is drawn to the surface, increasing circulation and encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body, which has the consequence of speeding up recovery time from any illness or injury. The manipulation of the muscles continues the process, whilst at the same time releasing tense knotted muscles by dispersing the buildup of lactic acid which often occurs after exercise. As the circulation increases, the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to permeate to all the major body organs.usually the massage will be slow and gentle and living one with in a deep relaxation state.it is much recommended to anxiety or stress issue's.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as it works to release chronic muscle tension or "knots" as well on trigger points.
The massage shouldn't hurt, but it's likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you. If the pressure is more than you can comfortably take, you might unconsciously tense up, guarding your body from pain. This makes it harder for the therapist to achieve results.
