At Healingmoon we offer several types of massage. They are all known as ‘holistic massage’ as the treatments take into account the whole person, rather than just focusing on the symptom or the part of the body that has the problem. One of the primary goals of massage is to relax the entire body.
Massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension and soothing muscles and joints. At HealingMoon the massage is tailored to your specific needs, intuitively feeling and soothing areas of tension in your body and leaving you feeling relaxed and cared for.
Clients often say that they have never felt so calm and relaxed and we have a very high percentage who return on a regular basis because they feel that it helps them to cope with the everyday stresses and strains of life.

What to expect during your massage treatment
Before your initial treatment you will asked about your health and any medical conditions and medication that you are taking. This information is strictly confidential and is to ensure that the massage treatment is suitable for your needs. Some medical conditions and medication can cause contraindication and in this case therapeutic massage might not be the best therapy for you.
Please take time to read the massage contraindications page before you book an appointment. During the consultation we will also listen to your needs carefully to customise your treatment and also answer any questions that you may have.
During the massage treatment we will make sure that you are comfortable and covered with a warm towel, ensuring that you are kept warm and that your modesty is respected at all times. The treatment room is kept warm and freshly laundered towels are always used to ensure you are warm and relaxed throughout your treatment.
Your skin will be nurtured with warm oil and all of the tension in your muscles and body gently soothed away. At HealingMoon the finest cold pressed massage oils and pure blended essential oils help you relax, detox and soothe tired muscles.
