Aromatherapy massage is a therapy enhanced with highly contracted plant oils (essential oils) added to the massage oil and have been used for thousands of years to benefit physical, mental and emotional health.


During aromatherapy massage, the skin is warmed and the blood drawn to the surface increasing circulation, encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body and speeding up recovery time from illness or injury.


The manipulation of the muscles continues the process, releasing tense knotted muscles as the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to permeate to all the major body organs.


TUI NA MASSAGE

90 MINUTES - €70.

Chinese Tui Na Massage is a deep tissue treatment on a clothed or covered body excellent for chronic complaints such as whiplash injury, tension, disc problems, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, migraines, neuralgia, depression, insomnia, chronic strain, frozen shoulder, lumbar pain, and other illnesses of repetitive strain. You will be kneaded into a state of health.
