We offer several types of massage that focus on different parts of the body or healing approaches. Massage is the
practice of rubbing and kneading the body using the hands. During a massage, a massage therapist will apply gentle or
strong pressure to the muscles and joints of the body to ease pain and tension. A massage therapist is a person trained
in giving massages.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a gentle type of full-body massage that’s ideal for people who

Are new to massage

Have a lot of tension

Are sensitive to touch

It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.

For this massage, you’ll remove your clothes, though you may choose to keep your underwear on. You’ll be covered with a sheet while lying on the massage table. The massage therapist will move the sheet to uncover areas that they are actively working on.

The massage therapist will use a combination of:


Long, flowing strokes in the direction of the heart

Deep circular motions

Vibration and tapping

Passive joint movement techniques

Usually a Swedish massage will last for 60–90 minutes.


Choose a Swedish massage for relaxation or managing minor pain.

This type of massage is also good for people new to massage.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax. This type of therapeutic massage is similar to a Swedish massage, only the massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands. It eases muscle tension, improves blood flow, and relieves pain by using heated stones. Hot stone massage may help:

Ease muscle tension

Improve blood flow

Alleviate pain

Promote relaxation

Relieve stress

During a hot stone massage, heated stones are placed on different areas around your whole body. Your therapist may hold a stone as they massage different parts of your body using Swedish massage techniques using gentle pressure. Sometimes cold stones are also used.

You don’t wear clothes for hot stone massage unless you’ll feel more comfortable wearing your underwear. You will be covered with a sheet. Usually the massage is 90 minutes long.


Hot stone massage may relieve more muscle tension than a Swedish massage because of the added heat.

This type of massage in usually more expensive than a Swedish massage.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massages are best for people who want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. This type of massage can help:

Boost your mood

Reducea stress and anxiety

Reduce symptoms of depression

Relieve muscle tension

Relieve pain

Aromatherapy massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Your massage therapist will usually decide which essential oils to use, but you can let them know if you have a preference. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin.

During the massage, you’ll be given a full-body massage while inhaling essential oils through a diffuser and absorbing them through your skin. Sometimes an aromatherapy massage will only focus on your back, shoulders, and head. You won’t wear any clothing other than underwear, which is optional.

An aromatherapy massage is 60–90 minutes.

Deep Tissue Masasage

Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle pain, and anxiety.

During a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will use slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension from the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues. You can be naked during this massage or wear your underwear

The massage will last for 60–90 minutes.

While deep tissue may be more intense, you shouldn’t feel any pain or soreness

Full-Body Massage

A full-body massage is as luxurious as it gets. There’s no better reward after a stressful day, a long week, or just to celebrate yourself. Such a holistic, all-encompassing experience can leave you feeling deeply restored, energised and motivated.

But for some people, the idea of a full-body massage is a scary one. What does it involve? How much of the “full-body” are we talking? What’s the etiquette for such a physical therapy?
