Lovely staff, amazing service... Beautiful Molly the dog sometimes greets you at reception with her big, bright eyes and calm and peaceful quiet nature.
I was carrying around chronic pain that I thought I would never get rid of. I’m managing to stay pain-free through the week now and I’m over the moon!
I am amazed and awe struck at how massages can be deeply intuitive, powerful and effective.
- S.A.
I felt safe, heard, validated and a little less alone.
Truly the best therapeutic and deep relaxation massage I have had. Highly recommended!
Fantastic practitioners. Gorgeous rooms. Owned & operated by a locally-living Goddess of sorts. This place is a real wellness centre!
Everyone who works here is full of knowledge and I love the happy vibes.
Hands down the best massage I’ve ever had. Have already booked in for my next one.

The purpose of sports massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance and improve recovery.  The techniques used will drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injuries.

What is a Sports Massage?

Sports Massage encompasses deep tissue and other specialised techniques to alleviate acute and chronic muscular symptoms. Where appropriate, your therapist will draw on direct myofascial release techniques (MFR). MFR works by directly engaging the fascia, the soft tissue component of connective tissue. Fascia plays a fundamental role in the body’s structure, function and recovery. By employing these MFR techniques, the therapist is able to facilitate an effective relief of physical discomfort, chronic stiffness and pain as well as improving mental and emotional stress.

Who is a Sports Massage for?

Although sports massage was originally designed for athletes, this form of treatment is also relevant for those experiencing chronic pain, injury or range-of-motion issues. It is equally effective and enjoyable for those seeking a more rigorous, deep tissue treatment.

Note: We only use hypo allergenic water dispersible premium massage oil. Ingredients include sunflower oil, jojoba oil, natural coconut glycerides and extracts.
