Hands-on massage is a wonderful way to relieve stress and feel the healing powers of the therapists’ touch… There are further treatments available in our spa room.

Aromatherapy Massage / The Stress Reliever

Excellent for tension and stress, this is a deep pressure massage of the back, neck and shoulders, using essential oils. One of our most popular massages, it brings about a real sense of wellbeing and relaxation.


A unique system of foot massage, reflexology is based on holistic principles and springs from the same Chinese roots as acupuncture. Locating and gently massaging the reflexology points on the foot helps to redress the imbalance of energy that can cause stress and ill health.
