What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage does what it says 'on the tin' - it is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.

Deep tissue massage is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and tight areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.Deep tissue massage is one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent muscle injuries, pain, and soreness. The techniques use deep strong pressure and motion to muscles reducing stiffness and tension, especially if caused by stress, postural conditions, over training or injury.

Reiki is a Japanese form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Our practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient to encourage emotional or physical healing.Reiki is an intelligent, free healing energy. Intelligent, because I don’t need to know your health problem, your symptoms. The Reiki energy goes to that part of your body, where your body needs it. This energy is free, because I can’t stop its flow. It flows until your body needs it.
What happens in a Reiki session?Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, but it can be carried out anywhere. The patient will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed. Our therapist places their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body.While our therapist holds their hands lightly on or over the body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, the practitioner’s hands may be warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy has stopped flowing.When the holistic therapist feels that the heat, or energy, in their hands has abated, they will remove their hands and may place them over a different area of the body.
Health benefits?Reiki is alleged to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.It is also said to induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall wellbeing.
