Massage Therapies

At Stepping Stones we see our patient as a whole. We don’t only treat your symptoms but try to identify the causes behind them. Our therapists have a strong understanding of body intelligence starting with the fact that everything is connected - Mind & Body.

As long as there is an imbalance in your body, not only will it affect your muscle range movements but it will also give you an unhappy feeling such as frustration or anxiety. Another factor to consider is your stress level as this will cause your muscles to continuously be tensed, resulting with you feeling some form of muscular pain.

An efficient massage treatment combines relaxation techniques, to decrease stress levels and to allow the mind to relax and to be more aware of the body signals, with deep tissue techniques to unblock your muscles and stretching techniques to gain more flexibility within your body.

Each massage session usually begins with a brief consultation to give you and your therapist the chance to identify the most suitable treatment for you. However, whichever treatment you decide to go with, our therapists have the skill sets to combine massage technique in order to enhance your wellbeing.


Body Detoxifier Massage

This treatment is specially designed to fight tiredness, water retention and to generally boost up your immune system. It combines manual Lymphatic Drainage with relaxation techniques. The main technique consists of a light pressure applied over your Lymphatic Nodules, key points in our body where the toxins are gathered ready to be drained into the Lymphatic Circulatory System.

It has a powerful impact on your body's ability to heal by clearing out sluggish tissue and general body toxins.

Health Rejuvenation Massage

The Health Rejuvenation massage gives your body and mind a natural calm feeling through a special holistic style tailored to your body. It combines classic massage techniques with breathing and stretching techniques to target chronic muscle tension, muscle spasm and knots.

Along with firm strokes, it enhances circulation and blood flow to large groups of muscles which causes the body to release toxins. It's the perfect massage to loosen up & enhance relaxation after a long day.

Hot Stones Massage

Hot Stones Massage is a speciality massage where a therapist uses smooth, heated stones in order to massage and relax the body.

Stones were used by many ancient cultures who believed in their medicinal and spiritual purposes. There are many different types of stones that can be used during the massage, from marble to slate. The most popular stone and the most used in the UK is basalt, which is a black volcanic rock that is rich in iron and retains heat well.

The stones are immersed in water and are heated until they reach a certain temperature range. The warmth of the stones helps to relax the muscles deeply whilst improving circulation and calming the nervous system.

How the therapist uses the stones varies in every treatment, some may simply place the stones on certain pressure points, and others may use the stones to perform a deep-tissue massage.

The penetration of the heat and texture from the stones make them perfect for a therapeutic massage, working deeply into the muscles. The entire body is massaged using the hot stones, including the face and scalp.

The stones have a smooth texture which helps to glide over the body bringing deep relaxation. The treatment is said to promote inner peace, release muscular tension and balance energy levels.

Other benefits from hot stones massage may include: pain relief, improve circulation and relaxation, ease mental stress and tension and may help to combat some of the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia and depression.

The treatment may not be appropriate for pregnant women, clients with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or those who are on medication that thins the blood.
