Swedish massage therapy is the most well-known and widely used therapeutic massage. It involves working the soft tissue of the body to ease day to day stresses and improves muscle tension by targeting superficial muscles to promote relaxation. Massage therapy is incredibly powerful and can benefit the mind, body and soul.
It relaxes taut muscles, aids lymphatic drainage, releases toxins and can improve circulation, nervous function, joint mobility and improve sleep. Massage therapy can ease/help many short or long term ailments such as back pain and insomnia.
Please notify Nerys about your pain points and she will be able to use a gentle stroking motion to reduce muscle tension and improve circulation.
Massage can also reduce stress by soothing a busy mind, enhancing well-being and promoting self-esteem.
‘There is growing evidence to suggest that massage can be effective in helping to treat certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and low back pain.’
In guidelines produced in 2009 by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), manual therapies- including massage are recommended for the early management of persistent, non-specific low back pain.

Hot Stone Massage
30 MINUTES• £30
1 HOUR• £45
Hot stones, warmed by a fire have been used by Native Americans for years to ease and soothe away aching muscles.
Today, basalt stones are used due to their non-porosity, smoothness and their ability to retain heat for longer than any other types of stone. These beautiful stones come in different sizes and are perfect for working the whole body.
Slow and gentle massage stokes will be used and the hot basalt stones will be placed at certain points of your body allowing you to feel completely relaxed, comforted and calm by the end of the treatment.
Nerys will ensure that the temperature of the stone suits the person but please notify her if you feel any discomfort during the treatment and a muslin cloth can be used between the stone and your skin.
