HOT STONE MASSAGE (1hour) £55Manicare small rocks

Hot stone massage is a deep massage  that uses soothing oils, warm basalt and sometimes cold marble stones to relax your muscles.Powderpuff Rock Massage

Hot stone treatments alternate warmth and cold -- a technique which has proven beneficial to soothe an aching body.

Hot stone massage combines relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness to encourage the body to detox and heal. This also increases lymph flow and helps to flush out waste.

Heat relaxes your body in a short space of time, so focus can be put into working deeply into the tissues using both hot stones and hand strokes.

Hot stones also increase your sense of relaxation and calm. They are coated in fragrant oil which is smoothed gently onto your body, and each stone in turn is worked by your therapist's hands.

Hot stone massage can:
* boost your circulation
* release stored tension
* recharge your energy levels
* relax you

Hot stone massage is said to have health benefits for people with:
* muscular pain
* poor circulation
* rheumatic and arthritic conditions
* fibromyalgia
* back pain
* stress
* insomnia
* depression.
As with all spa therapies, never underestimate the feel-good factor. Hot stone massage will help you feel nurtured, pampered and special.

Swedish Massage (1hour)  £45Manicare His and Her Massage

Swedish body massage is the original Western massage technique involving a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers using a variety of stroking, kneading, pressure and flowing movements over the body.

How does Swedish Massage work

The many different types of hand movements used throughout this massage are designed to relax and energize the body by stimulating circulation. Toxins are released from the muscles, the nervous system is stimulated and emotional and physical stress is reduced.

Swedish massage involves the use of a massage oil to allow free movement of the massage techniques and to nourish the skin.  A full body massage usually treats the back, legs, abdomen, arms, chest and neck, although this can be adapted to suit your individual requirements or preferences. A combination of long strokes, kneading, rolling, rubbing, gliding, vibration, percussive and tapping movements, are used to provide a relaxing and energising experience.
