• Integrative Bodywork is like massage, only slower and deeper. It helps to ease the bound connective tissue in the body by stretching and releasing pressure points, thereby giving the muscles more room to move, allowing them to return to their fully relaxed position. In addition, we encourage the client to explore their life tensions that may be affecting their body condition.
It’s good for people with long term pain arising from falls, sporting injuries and problems relating to postural imbalance. Our clients range from oil rig workers with frozen shoulder, to ballet dancers needing more extension, seniors having trouble sleeping to nurses with persistent back pain.

• Postural Integration is a series of ten, 90 to 120 minute sessions of soft tissue bodywork and body-mind awareness designed to release the old and usually tired, mental and emotional habits which support and continually re-create poor posture and pain in our bodies.
The result is a new you, able to move on, to reclaim your life, in a body which moves more easily, is more fluid and graceful. You will notice an enhanced sensitivity and awareness in the bodymind and a new, aligned posture, you will enjoy increased energy, vitality and sense of self.
This treatment is particularly good for those who: feel ‘stuck in a rut’; want something more but don’t know what; have long term pain or illness; who have ‘tried everything but nothing seems to change for me’.
• Your chance to unwind. Let the soothing touch and aromatic oils ease the tensions away. A Full Hour dedicated to getting back in touch with yourself. When you need a feeling of deep relaxation and calm massage prompts the release of endorphins that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones - such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine - are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage include:
* Reduced muscle tension
* Improved circulation
* Stimulation of the lymphatic system
* Reduction of stress hormones
* Increased joint mobility and flexibility
* Improved skin tone
* Speedier healing of soft tissue injuries
* Heightened mental alertness
* Reduced anxiety and depression.

• Using a variety of techniques including Soft Tissue Bodywork, trigger points, passive and active stretching, myofascial release (MFR), transverse friction, and muscle energy transfer (MET) we work towards easing musculoskeletal pain out of your body. If you are in pain in the body this is the treatment for you.

• A very gentle massage technique to assist in the movement of the fluid through the body. The main roles of the lymphatic system include managing the fluid levels in the body, filtering out bacteria, and housing types of white blood cells (which destroy bacteria that are collected in the lymph nodes). Lymph is filtered through the spleen, thymus and lymph nodes before being emptied into the blood. The lymphatic system is powered by the pressure of the muscles acting on the fine lymph tubules and squeezing them like a pump. Our sedentary lifestyles promote pooling of the lymph in the extremities - hands, wrists, ankles and feet. If you have puffy ankles, wrists or your lymph system has been compromised by disease then drainage can help to get the system moving again.
