Massage

"I had a wonderful massage. I left feeling utterly relaxed and as if I'd been there for hours. I enjoyed every minute!"
Emma, August 2018

A heated couch, warm oils, dimmed lights and soft music make this an indulgent and relaxing experience. We use Swedish massage in all of our massage treatments, so that you get as many of the benefits of this therapy as possible.

Central to The Retreat Health and Beauty Salon's principles is giving our clients the right treatment for them. This is why we prefer to consider each person on an individual basis and therefore alter the moves, depth of pressure and focus points for each appointment.

If you would prefer a Deep Tissue Massage, please mention this at the time of booking or during your consultation. There is no extra charge for this. 

A combination of five key techniques (stroking and gliding; tapping or pounding; rubbing; kneading; vibration) work to achieve a number of advantages. Muscles are kept smooth and supple, increased oxygen flow in the blood boosts circulation and toxins are flushed out to improve tension. Your physical and emotional stress can also be reduced, because the stress hormone Cortisol is decreased. This may lead to an improved immune system, heightened energy levels, and a higher quality of sleep.

Please be aware, we may need a GP note if you suffer from any of the following: under any medical supervision/concern, operations/scar tissue within the last six months, infectious skin diseases, hernia, high blood pressure, varicose veins, cancer, broken bones, diabetes, inflammation, deep vein thrombosis, heart disease, lymphoedema, epilepsy, open wounds and taking strong painkillers.

If you are pregnant we will need a GP/midwife letter to confirm you are safe to go ahead with treatment. Pregnancy massage is available.

Please call the salon and read our Terms and Conditions for further information. 

To get the best out of your treatment, please read the below instructions carefully and follow them as strictly as possible to ensure your own health and safety.

Please avoid eating a heavy meal and drinking alcohol for an hour before your massage, to prevent any discomfort or for the massage to increase the effects of alcohol in your system.

Avoid heavy meals for a few hours after your appointment.

If you have been for a workout prior to your appointment, please ensure you are freshly showered and that your hair is not wet or damp.

To gain maximum benefits from your massage treatment we advise you drink plenty of water! Stress and tension cause a build-up of toxins in your body, which massage helps to remove. Water speeds up this elimination.

Alcohol should be avoided for 24 hours as it is counterproductive to the removal of toxins.

To ensure you gain the maximum benefits of any oils we have used during your massage, we recommend that you avoid having a shower or bath for at least 4-6 hours after your appointment.

If you have chosen to have a massage in order to help correct an issue developed from poor posture, we would advise you try to fix the cause of your tense muscles. This could be due to the incorrect setup of your computer and desk, a very common problem! Otherwise you will be back to see us before you know it, and as much as we would love to see you we’d rather you weren’t in pain!

Avoid exposure to strong sunlight and sunbeds following the use of massage oils.

It is possible you may feel a little tired, a small amount of soreness, have headaches or even feel a tad more emotional than usual within the first 24 hours after your massage. This is perfectly normal! Your body is relaxing, don’t fight it! They will pass as your body rebalances itself.

Lava Shell Massage

Lava shells are the world's first naturally self-heating tool, which allows a massage therapist to include heat into their techniques. The warmth is produced by inserting a lava gel sachet and an activator liquid into the shell. The lava shells are genuine, hand-selected Tiger Clam shells that are native to the oceans surrounding the Philippines. Local villagers, having no use for the shells, simply threw them away. No animals are harmed in any way during the creation of our lava shells. 

Lava Shell Massage can ease tense muscles as the heat gently relaxes and smooths away any knots, boosts circulation, reduces swelling and water retention. It will leave you feeling stress-free and relaxed. 

Hot Lava Shell Relax Body Massage

The Lava Shell Relax Body massage is the soothing solution to your stress and tension. As the therapist glides the marine polished sea shells smoothly all over the body, you will drift into a state of utter relaxation and calm. 

During the massage, the shells are worked over the palms, arms and neck, focusing on the pressure points. The therapist will work on the deep tissue around tension areas such as the feet, back and shoulders in order to ease away tension, knots and stress. This will unblock energy flow and release a sense of balance to the entire body and mind.
