Massage – Relax, Revive and Heal

‘Anyone wishing to study medicine must master the art of massage’ – Hippocrates

As a holistic healing system, Hippocratic medicine treated the patient, and not just the disease. Hippocrates placed great emphasis on strengthening and building up the body’s inherent resistance to disease.

Massage Therapy has many benefits for the mind, body and soul, here’s just a few:

        • Increases circulation of blood and lymph
        • Relaxes tight muscles, tendon and ligaments improving posture & flexibility
        • Frees up nerve tissue that has had tight muscle tissue restricting it
        • Breaks up stored toxins in the body so that they can be eliminated more easily
        • Allows better organ and brain function by improving circulation and nerve supply
        • Assist healing of tissue by increasing circulation to that area
        • Breaks up fibrous adhesions around joint tissue
        • Pain relief and management
        • Depression, anxiety, stress and fatigue
        • Headaches & Insomnia

Rayner Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

This form of Deep Tissue Massage is developed from both Eastern and Western traditions, focusing on the person as one holistic organism – mind, body and soul – and that all these parts affect each other. It recognises that tensions can be caused by emotion and environment as well as physical impacts.

It works along the bands of tension from the body’s five anchor points: the head, hands and feet. These are not the same as tendons or ligaments and will vary in every person depending on where they hold their tension.

Removing residual tensions is like peeling an onion, starting with the topmost layer of tension, which can be the most obvious, then moving to the next layer that is held deeper in the body.

Suitable whether you have a specific issue or injury or are looking to improve your overall wellbeing.

Indian Head Massage Therapy

Indian Head Massage focuses on the whole upper part of your body. As well as being an incredibly relaxing therapy, there are so many health benefits:


        • Supports prevention of migraines, headaches and back pain by releasing the build-up of tension in the upper back, neck and head.
        • Promoting hair growth as a lovely side effect, by increasing nourishment and oxygen to the scalp and hair follicle, which in turn stimulates hair growth.
        • Detoxifying the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body.
        • Alleviating sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia by relieving stress and promoting relaxation, addressing physical symptoms, opening your body and mind to better rest.
        • Relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression by encouraging the supply of oxygen to the brain, which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting one’s mood. Oxygen helps you think clearly and creatively.
        • Increasing energy levels as it works with the Ayurvedic concept, which places emphasis on balance. Working on the Chakras through Indian Massage has a powerful effect in bringing the energy (Nadi) of the body back into balance.
        • Boosting memory capabilities by slowing us down, our thoughts quieten and this allows us to reduce the overload, which often leads to short-term memory difficulties.

If you’d like a real treat, why not try one of our nourishing Indian Head Massages with oil.

I chose crystal healing because I was curious. Heather was warm and caring, talking me through the process and putting ... me at ease. I definitely felt lighter and more balanced within myself the next day and these feelings have continued. I will definitely go again. Thanks so much more
