Traditional thai (yoga) massage

Thai massage is done on a mattress on the floor through loose clothing.  It is a combination of assisted stretching and acupressure (working along sen lines (similar to the Channels in Chinese Medicine)), and feels both invigorating and relaxing.  Good for alleviating tension and tightness.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Stimulates the body’s lymphatic system, helping it to rid itself of waste products faster.  Good for injury / operation recovery, water retention, sinusitis, digestive issues, hayfever, chronic pain, and to brighten the complexion on the face.  Very gentle and relaxing.
