Each signature massage is tailored to you and your needs. It is a fusion of massage techniques that seamlessly blends together. Massage restores balance and wellbeing, releases muscle tension and allows your body to move more freely. It counters the effects of stress, anxiety, and the lack of rest and helps get the energy flowing again. This includes the use of hot basalt stones to aid in relaxation and circulation and Reiki healing.
Using Swedish massage techniques and essential oil balms this treatment is designed for pure relaxation. Chose between upper body back, neck, shoulder and scalp massage or focus on lower body, legs and end with a foot massage.
If you are looking for an incredibly relaxing treatment, it’s worth looking into a hot stone massage. Hot stone massages use flat, smooth basalt stones. These are heated and positioned on your body and used to massage.
There are several benefits to hot stone massage. Hot stone massage can: • Aid pain relief • Aid muscle relaxation • Encourage better sleep • Improve joint flexibility • Calm the nervous system
There are mental health benefits, too. Not only does a hot stone massage give you the opportunity to truly switch off from your responsibilities and help you to relax, but massage can relieve some symptoms of depression and promote feelings of connection too. It can help you feel connected to your body.
Reiki is a natural, hands on energy healing modality that originated from Japan; in translation it means 'Spiritually guided life force energy' when a person is experiencing stress, illness or a disconnect with their higher self it is likely they are experiencing disharmony within their body.

"What a beautiful experience Emily offers. She provides a calming & peaceful environment from the moment you arrive & has somehow mastered the art of magically stretching out time where a massage doesn't feel like its over too quickly! Totally recommend The Therapy Room"
"From the moment I walked in the door I was greeted by Emily and made to feel so comfortable. The massage was hands down the best relaxation massage I have ever had. The massage room has an amazing calm ora so I felt at ease as soon as I walked in and climbed up onto the massage bed. Everything was perfect right down to the pressure. I can't wait to rebook again soon. You know the massage is good when you're fighting to stay awake."
