Deep Tissue Massage with Erin

This type of massage therapy concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle and fascia in the body whilst using slow, firm massage techniques to reduce chronic pain, improve circulation and rehabilitate injured muscles. Despite the firm pressure and dedicated work into the areas of concern, the slow intentional movements reportedly cause a deeper sense of relaxation as you float off for a healing sleep. Science has proven just one treatment can also greatly reduce blood pressure.

  • Benefits a stressful, energetic lifestyle, particularly post-exercise
  • This treatment can be done either dressed or undressed, depending on the area of concern and depth of treatment
  • Oils will often be used to help reduce friction. 
Holistic/Deep Tissue Massage with Jojo

This luxurious treatment is adapted to your specific needs, using various massage techniques and your therapists’ awareness of the interrelationships of the body, mind and energy as they work with you as a whole. Your therapist can adapt your treatment to relax, revive or rehabilitate. Gentle to medium pressure is applied using stroking, gliding, kneading and rubbing massage techniques.

  • Benefits a stressful lifestyle, or even just someone who wants pure relaxation
  • Undressed treatment where the body will be covered at all times, with towels folded back from only the area being worked on at each phase of the treatment
  • Oils will be used to reduce friction and encourage relaxation. 
Warm Bamboo Massage with Jojo

A favourite of ours at Oakwell…think Hot Stone Massage, but Bamboo instead of stones! This is essentially the same as deep tissue massage or Swedish massage, however rather than your therapist using their hands, they use smooth heated bamboo kneaded into the tissues with accurate gliding strokes. The heat from the bamboo allows for firm pressure to reach knots formed by lactic acid and other tension-causing wastes. The bamboos properties as a plant can also help to improve the skin whilst the deep heat penetrates to the deeper layers of connective tissues to reduce inflammation.

  • Benefits anyone struggling with tight muscles, where a standard hands-on massage may not be enough!
  • Undressed treatment where the body will be covered at all times, with towels folded back from only the area being worked on at each phase of the treatment
  • Oils will be used to reduce friction and encourage relaxation.
Indian Head Massage with Jojo

Indian head massage stimulates the nerves within the head helping you to relax. This technique also increases circulation, as well as exfoliates the scalp and nourishes the hair if you opt to include oil in your treatment.

  • Benefits a stressful lifestyle and is also good for those who may want a relaxing massage but do not feel comfortable having their body touched
  • You usually only need to remove your upper clothing, to ensure we don’t get any oils on them. You can opt to remain fully dressed throughout if you prefer, just let your therapist know!
  • Oils are optional. If you are conscious of your hair getting into a mess, especially if you have plans after your treatment, then let your therapist know not to use oils. Otherwise, to feel the most out of your treatment, we recommend using oils so your hair can have a lovely treatment and the aroma will help encourage relaxation.
Pregnancy Massage with Erin or Jojo

A woman’s body goes through an incredible transformation during all stages of pregnancy. It can also cause tremendous stress on the back and joints. Our pregnancy massages are designed for safety and comfort. Help your body and mind with a de-stressing massage to alleviate tensions building as your little one grows.

  • Benefits women at all stages of pregnancy, including post-natal
  • Undressed treatment where the body will be covered at all times, with towels folded back from only the area being worked on at each phase of the treatment
  • Oils will be used to reduce friction and encourage relaxation

FAQ’s

Q: What should I expect during my first massage visit?

A: We will require you to fill out a consultation form before your treatment so it is best to arrive a few minutes early so you don’t risk losing time from your treatment. You will then be taken to your treatment room where the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed, and to determine if and what massage style is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition and to see if you have any presenting complaints. Your therapist will then leave the room whilst you undress and get comfortable on the table covered in fresh towels. If your treatment does not require you to undress, your therapist will stay in the room as you position yourself on the table. Then all you need to do is relax and enjoy!

    Q: What if I’m not entirely enjoying my treatment?

    A: Remember, this is your session so if something isn’t to your liking, please speak up. We want you to have a memorable treatment for all the right reasons, so if you want anything changed, be it pressure, areas worked, position or if you are too hot or too cold please tell your therapist – they will not be offended as they also want you to have the best possible experience.

      Q: Do I have to be completely undressed?

      A: This depends on the treatment you are having, but ultimately you should undress to the level you are comfortable. For a full body massage, most leave their underwear on. The therapist will work around the clothes you left on as best as he/she can. Your therapist will always give you privacy to undress and get comfortable on the table. If you absolutely do not want to undress at all, we offer alternative massage options such as Thai Yoga massage and Indian Head massage which do not require you to remove any clothes at all.

        Q: What do I do during a massage treatment?

        A: Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, she/he will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It’s up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.

        Q: How will I feel after my massage treatment?

        A: Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant reduction in long-term aches and pains. You may also feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days. If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness. After your session you should increase your water intake to help keep your body’s tissues hydrated and healthy, and flush out the toxins released from your treatment.

          Q: When should I not get a massage?

          A: You should not book a massage if you have a fever, cold/flu, or contagious skin infection. There are some conditions in which your therapist may need to adapt his/her techniques (i.e. arthritis or osteoporosis) or avoid an area completely (i.e. cuts or burns). With some conditions it is a good idea to get an approval from your doctor before you receive a massage (cancer, certain heart conditions, pregnancy). This doesn’t mean you can’t have a treatment, it is always better to err on the side of caution.
