What is hydrotherm massage – 30mins – £40.00
60mins – £65.00
Hydrotherm is a massage system which places warm water-filled pads on top of a regular therapy couch. Your entire massage is carried out while you are face-up, on your back. Your therapist will slide their hands between you and the pads to give you your massage.
Hydrotherm massage helps to:
- relieve stress on joints and muscles
- encourage swift recovery from muscle and joint pain or strain
- improve your sleep
What to expect from a hydrotherm massage:
A hydrotherm massage makes a good choice for anyone who can’t lie on their front, perhaps because of mobility problems or disabilities, or because of pregnancy. Indeed, hydrotherm massage is good for anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable lying face-down on a massage couch.
Hydrotherm massage could also be an option for those who feel self-conscious turning over on a therapy couch mid-treatment.
The placement of the warm-water pads is designed to give your back perfect spinal alignment; your knees are slightly raised and your hands rest below the pads to encourage your body to relax.
Thanks to the heat from the pads (30-40 degrees), a hydrotherm massage can be beneficial if you suffer from neck pain, lower-back aches or stiff muscles. The heat helps warm your muscles up, which makes the therapist’s movements more effective.
Oh, and don’t worry – you won’t get wet; the water in the pads is thoroughly sealed in.
At the end of the treatment, your therapist will help you into a seated position so that you can swing your legs off the couch and get your feet onto the floor.
Hydrotherm can be a very soothing and deeply therapeutic form of massage. If you let yourself relax into the experience, you may find that you initially feel as though you are lying on the water, but end up feeling as though you have been lying in the water.
Swedish back neck & Shoulders – 30mins – £35.00
The neck and shoulders are the most common areas of the body that are prone to stiffness and accumulated tension. Continuous build-up of stress and tension in the neck and shoulder region leads to stiff necks, aching shoulders and headaches. A neck and shoulder massage is primarily done to relieve the tension and stress around this area. The human scalp is replete with nerve endings; a good scalp massage stimulates the nervous system, increases blood flow to the head thereby easing stress and chronic headaches. Friction movements to the scalp cause the release of endorphins, which, in turn, helps in relieving pain in the area. Scalp massages have also been regarded as the ideal way to de-stress, and are known to be effective as relaxing and calming techniques.
