An invitation to unwind

Stress can be sneaky, showing up in your body in all sorts of unexpected ways. That’s why it’s important to make time to let your body recover properly.

This treatment’s a gentle invitation to mind and body to let go of stress, with light pressure and flowing strokes to help you unwind.

What happens during a de-stress massage?

In this soothing treatment, your therapist will use slow flowing motions across your whole body to release tension and calm your nervous system. They’ll use carefully-chosen essential oils formulated to help you relax.

Different people unwind in different ways, so your therapist will check to make sure their pressure and motions are just right.

More info on de-stress massage

Yes, studies have shown massage can help to soothe anxiety and stress. But it’s worth remembering that a massage isn’t a substitute for medical treatment if your anxiety is caused by a mental health condition, like clinical depression.

A relaxing massage has been proven to relieve stress by stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system. That’s the part of you that switches off your body’s fight or flight response, bringing levels of stress hormones, like cortisol and adrenaline, down and boosting endorphins serotonin and dopamine.

No, try our specialist pregnancy massage instead, bookable from your second trimester.

Hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.

If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
