The fascia is a continuous elastic sheath that provides structural support for the skeleton and soft tissues (i.e., muscles, tendons and organs). In fact the body is a web of fascia.Read More...

Prior to the massage, a specific blend is created for each client, to suit their individual preferences and to respond to any conditions they may have.Read More...
The art of aromatherapy has its roots in ancient times when the essential oils of aromatic plants were used to promote health and to counteract disease. You need only to think of the biblical ‘three kings’ and their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Frankincense and myrrh are still used by aromatherapists today.
There are many ways in which essential oils can be used for health and for pleasure but it must be remembered that they are very powerful and can be misused. For example, some oils should never be used in pregnancy. So, err on the safe side and ask a qualified aromatherapist for advice.
