Relaxation Massage is amazing for stress management, rehabilitation or regular body maintenance and shouldn’t be viewed as “just a treat.”
All our relaxation massage treatments include a consultation that doesn’t come out of the ‘table time’ you pay for. This gives us the chance to discuss your goals for the session, to select methods or techniques and plan a treatment specific to your needs at the time. We can also offer post care advice at the end of your session to help you continue the benefits of your massage for as long as possible.
Relaxation Massage is often referred to as ‘Swedish Massage.’ We regard it as one of the most self indulgent ways to do something truly beneficial for your body.
This primary objective is to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to induce relaxation. Your body enters it’s ‘rest and digest’ phase and allows you to rest, heal and regenerate. Ideal for your average Wellington City lifestyle especially if you work a fairly sedentary job and have a busy home life. Some people like a very light pressure while others enjoy a firmer touch. Usually flowing and flushing type of strokes are used and you will find the massage to be quite balanced, covering more of the body where as a therapeutic massage may either focus the majority of your session time in a more localised area or it might be offering lymphatic drainage after surgery or sports massage and sports taping to athletes on the side of a field.
We have two Massage rooms so you and a friend or partner can both come in at the same time.
This service needs to be organised directly through us so we can assure room availability.

Hot Stone Massage
Smooth Basalt stones are heated in a pool of hot water and used to massage heat into your muscles. At times the stones are placed on your back or face and as we move through each area we do some flushing massage work to make the most of the therapeutic benefits of the heat. A deeply relaxing massage, we view this as the ultimate in relaxation and therefore only offer it as a 90 minute service in order to truly do it justice.
Indian Head Massage
This service offers improved blood flow to head and neck which can relieve eye strain and headaches and reduce chronic neck and shoulder issues. This includes shoulders, neck, arms and face as well as a traditional scalp massage.
Pregnancy is a time to be nurtured, come in and relieve some of the aches and pressures associated with pregnancy and enjoy an hour with our trained and skilled Massage Therapists who understand the changes you are going through both during and after pregnancy.
