Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a very gentle massage which aids lymphatic flow, so aiding the elimination of waste products in the body, it is suitable for conditions such as congested sinuses and congestion headaches, swollen legs and ankles, and is also an effective beauty treatment as it reduces puffy eyes and aids circulation. It can also be a beneficial treatment for whiplash injury and helps to reduce discomfort and increases mobility. Please note that this level of lymphatic drainage massage is not suitable for patients with lymphoedema resulting from injury or surgery, as this requires more specialist manual lymphatic drainage massage techniques.

Thai style massage is very different from other forms of massage. Thai Style massage uses passive yoga and acupressure techniques resulting in a deep but relaxing massage. The technique focuses work along the energy lines in the body and therapists use their hands, elbows, knees and feet and utilise stretching and rocking motions to relieve tension and to remove blockages. This type of massage leaves the client feeling loose and relaxed and is excellent for anyone that needs to relax tense and knotted muscle. The Massage is performed on the floor, rather than a massage couch and the client remains fully clothed, loose clothing such as a tracksuit is advised to aid ease of movement.
