Therapeutic Massage

Using a combination of various techniques suited to each person’s needs – including deep tissue, trigger points, stretching, mobilisation and postural assessment and alignment.  

GTM (Gentle Technique of Mobilisation) 

The process of gently releasing tight and blocked muscles or joints created by irritated/pinched nerves thus assisting in realigning the spine, neck, shoulders, hips and knees. 

GTM can be performed after your massage or separately according to your needs and normally requires just two or three treatments to gain relief. 

Reiki Energy Balancing

A very gentle energy work using non invasive touch to balance the body.

COST: $70 per hour
