Massage Styles

Full Body Swedish Massage

 As you feel the tensions in your muscles and mind melt away, your physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing will come into balance once more. 

This full body massage is popular for pure pampering and relaxation, stress reduction and improved sleep.  

By decreasing stress and pain hormones,  it can also be used to target more generalised aches and pains and areas of impaired mobility and tension within the body. 


Potential Benefits:

  • Deep relaxation and improved wellbeing

  • improved sleep

  • reduced stress levels and tension

  • pain relief

  • easing of anxiety and depression

  • enhanced healing of sports injuries

  • relaxation of the muscles

  • improved lymph flow and toxin removal

  • improved digestion

  • lower blood pressure

Advanced Deep Tissue Massage

Whether the root cause is medical, injury or stress related, this massage is designed for those seeking relief from chronic long-term pain and restricted flexibility.

It is also favoured by athletes and competitive sports players to release the build-up of painful lactic acid in the muscles following intense exercise, helping to promote recovery and performance. 

Using slow, deep techniques at considerable pressure, it can be used to target specific areas in isolation or incorporated into other massage styles for a full body treatment. 


Potential Benefits:

  • releasing painful lactic acid following exercise and sport

  • lowering stress levels

  • helping to free trapped nerves

  • improving oxygenation of  areas with poor blood circulation

  • relaxing the spine and joints back into alignment 

  • releasing the emotional build-up that is stored within the deeper layers of the body.

Warm Bamboo

If you like the sensation of intense heat sinking deep into your body and melting those tensions away then this is the massage for you!

I use different shapes and sizes of bamboo batons heated to approx 70 degrees to perform this massage.


The combination of deep heat and slow, firm pressure delivers a highly relaxing experience for you whilst allowing me to work deeply into the layers of your muscles.

This can be a treatment in itself or combined with other massage styles. 


Potential Benefits:

  • improved blood circulation

  • improved dispersal and removal of toxins

  • improved ability of the skin to absorb moisturising and therapeutic oils

  • highly relaxing

  • allows deep tissue work

  • Plus the benefits already attributed to Swedish massage

Natural Face-Lift  Massage

This 'natural face-lift massage' focuses on the head, face, neck and shoulders.


Elements of Japanese and Indian face massage are combined with Acupressure and Facial Reflexology to help clients look and feel younger without resorting to acupuncture needles or surgery!

Ideally delivered as a course of treatments, it disperses toxins from the face and relaxes and tones muscles, which in turn reduces puffiness, lines and wrinkles and can slow the ageing process. 


Potential Benefits:

  • reduced facial tension and puffiness

  • improved complexion

  • improved flow of toxins from the face

  • prevention and reduction of wrinkles

  • strengthened and toned facial muscles

  • slowing of the ageing process due to improved nutrition and circulation  repairing and balancing the skin

  • highly relaxing

Your treatment will be unique to you.

Your session begins with a consultation to discuss any health or physical concerns that you may have as well as to explore what you would like to achieve from your massage. 

Whilst you may already know which style of massage you would like, you may not be sure or may like to try something new, in which case we can discuss your options and tailor something to you. Often, the most effective treatments are those which combine elements from more than one of the disciplines outlined above.

If you have very specific longer-term goals, such as relief from chronic pain, on-going stress relief or a course of Facial Rejuvenation, we can discuss and plan a series of treatments that reflect your aims, budget and time constraints.

Facilities & Information

Parking and directions

Situated approximately 4 miles from Truro, private, off-street parking is available. Please just show consideration for other clients by parking within marked angle bays along the hedge so that their vehicles can enter and leave behind you without needing to disturb your massage to do so. Directions will be provided upon confirmation of booking.

Therapy Room

I practice from a comfortable, dedicated therapy room within my own home. It is equipped with a heated, professional couch, warmed oils and fluffy white towels for your comfort. 

I use unscented plant based oils that are nut-free.


The therapy room is en-suite, so if you wish to book an appointment directly after work or sport without needing to go home first you are more than welcome to shower here prior to your treatment. Similarly, whilst allowing the oils to be absorbed into the skin is beneficial, should you need to go directly to an appointment following your massage you are welcome to shower before leaving. 


Although spaces occasionally become available at short notice, appointments are best booked in advance to avoid disappointment.  

Whilst I endeavour to leave more than sufficient time between bookings, please note that if you arrive particularly late I may not be able to deliver the full length of massage you booked to avoid impacting upon the next client. 



Payment is welcome by cash or debit/credit card
