Workshops, Events and New Treatments

NEW: Advanced Tissue Massage

Our new advanced tissue massage involves Swedish massage incorporating target advanced massage on specific areas of tension, reaching the sub-layers of your muscles to relieve pain and restore movement. This deeper massage unsticks tight and stressed muscle fibres, releasing deeply-held patterns of tension, removing toxins and soothing the muscles. It involves slow and deep massage (although not necessarily hard pressure) to manipulate the muscles. It is ideal for helping with chronic aches and pains, sore shoulders, tightness in the legs, or muscular imbalances caused by long periods of driving or computer work. 
45-minute massage on one area - back, legs, or neck/shoulders. Incorporates 25 minutes of Swedish massage, 15 minutes of advanced massage on the same area, plus time for the consultation and aftercare advice. £42.
90-minute full body massage. Incorporates 55 minutes of Swedish massage, 30 minutes of advanced massage, plus time for the consultation and aftercare advice. £78.

Reiki in cancer - Research carried out by the Spa and Huddersfield Uni

Spa owner, Maxine Stead, used to work in cancer research and has been working with researchers at Huddersfield University to explore the use of Reiki in women with cancer. We conducted detailed interviews with 10 women and found that Reiki could be a beneficial tool in the self management of quality of life issues for women with cancer.  We discovered benefits such as a release of emotional strain, a clearing of the mind from cancer and feelings of inner peace and relaxation. 

We found that having Reiki really gave people an escape from what they were going through. They were often undergoing a lot of treatment, and the Reiki was a respite and seemed to help them cope. It got them 'out of the blackness' as one participant said.

We plan to continue our research, in collaboration with Kirkwood and Overgate Hospices. For anyone wishing to learn more about Reiki and its benefits and the treatment at the Spa, click here or call Maxine on 01484 303786.
