Massage options with Richenda
Relaxing Massage is good for de-stressing, or if you just need to relax. The treatment consists of flowing strokes/kneading and gentle manipulation of the muscles. This is great for tense muscles and relaxing the mind.
Remedial Massage is good for particular muscle tension or chronic pain. The treatment involves deep tissue work and pressure points. It can help with sciatica, stiff necks, headaches, back pain, whiplash or RSI.
LaStone Massage is a deep massage that uses soothing oils or warm basalt, and sometimes cold marble stones to deeply relax your muscles. The hot and cold detoxes and heals. This increases lymph flow and helps to flush out waste. It can help with muscular pain, poor circulation, fibromyalgia, stress and depression, arthritic and rheumatic conditions.
Ayurvedic head, neck shoulder massage
Ayurvedic head, neck shoulder massage is a seated massage using marma points. This is good for helping with anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, migraines and hair conditions.
Ayurvedic full body massage
Ayurvedic full body massage relaxes and detoxifies using long, flowing movements and marma points. This is good for relaxation, fatigue, anxiety and eczema and can improve circulation.
Pinda Sweda and Udvartana
Pinda sweda and udvartana involves massaging the body with a warm bolus (herbs tied in a muslin cloth and made into a bundle) using a pummelling technique. This is followed by ground ayurvedic herbs which are rubbed over the body, thus reducing pain and the onset or general feeling of fatigue. This in turn will promote a sense of wellbeing.

When cancelling an appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice, otherwise the full treatment fee will be charged.
Ayur-Ved – Sapna Pandya:
Ayurveda is an ancient lifestyle practice which aims to create harmony within the body. It is based on the philosophy of health and lifestyle that treats the whole person and not just the symptoms.
I specialise in Ayurvedic Massage along with the specific Marma Points (also referred to as energy points) to help restore balance to the body.
Stimulating the Marma Points helps to remove blockages, enabling the five cosmic elements to flow and restore balance and can help to:
- relieve depression and anxiety
- lower stress hormones in the blood
- improve sleep
- enhance the immune system
- make us more alert

Hello my name is Jennifer, I am VTCT qualified in complementary therapy with several years experience. The treatments I provide are Swedish, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, Relaxation Remedial, Hot Stone therapy,Balinese massage, Holistic facials,manicure/pedicures and waxing
Most of my treatments are influenced through years of extensive research on the benefits of massage therapy and my travels to the Motherland Africa and Far East Asia, where massage therapy is used as a healing tool, to treat the whole person, the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the body to achieve optimal wellness.
While on my travels around Indonesia, I enrolled on an Aromatherapy Balinese massage course at the International spa Academy in Bali Indonesia, which was truly amazing and inspiring as I learned about ancient massage rituals and techniques
The Balinese( Eastern) massage is a form of deep tissue massage designed to work almost every muscle in the body. Originating on the island of Bali, this massage involves a combination of techniques, including, acupressure, reflexology and aromatherapy into one session. Often used for relaxation, this type of massage also helps to loosen muscles and ease pain.

Balm Therapies – Beverli Taylor
Balm Therapies offers an holistic approach to wellbeing, utilising a range of complimentary therapies which facilitate the process of creating balance.
I offer both psychological and physical therapies. Prospective clients are offered a consultation which will assist in identifying suitability of treatment, and whether any contraindications are indicated.
A therapist can assist where individuals are experiencing major life changes, as a result of redundancy, unemployment, relationship breakdown, divorce, death and bereavement. Challenges which are sometimes experienced by individuals may relate to work related stress, anxiety and depression, and having a safe space to discuss these issues can help in making them more manageable.
There are times when experiences which may be buried deep within the psyche re-emerge to impact on our daily lives, often when we are least expecting it.
Taking the time out to give voice to the feelings surrounding experiences can bring about a greater sense of awareness and clarity, and provide new ways of managing difficulties.
As an holistic practitioner I fully recognise that the psychological challenges which we experience can sometimes manifest themselves in physical symptoms e.g. insomnia, headaches, muscle tension, and a general feeling of fatigue. It is with this knowledge that I work with each recipient to identify a treatment which will assist in bringing about the balance we hope to achieve.
After care, guidance and advice is offered to all clients. This can assist in maintaining wellbeing between treatments, and on completion of the process support clients in being active participants in their own well-being.
If you would like further details please get in touch. I am able to offer telephone, skype or online contact. Please check the Balm Therapies website for further details.
Tuina - Anita Dixon
Tuina (pronounced “twee-nah”) massage therapy is a complete healing system and is built on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and is complementary to both acupuncture and herbal medicine. This ancient Chinese bodywork is now gaining rapid acceptance in the western world.
Tuina treats chronic pain, especially that caused by muscle-skeletal problems. Neck, shoulder and back pain and sciatica all respond well. However, it is impossible to treat a specific condition with Tuina without improving the overall Qi status of the body.
This means that headaches, migraines, IBS, constipation, PMS and a whole range of emotional problems can also be treated.
The Tuina Therapist Anita Dixon is a Tuina Medical massage therapist with 31 years experience of working in the NHS. She has a background of working mainly in mental health and psychology working in rehabilitation for the older person, stroke rehabilitation and group therapy and counselling in GP practices.

‘For management of pain, improved mobility and increased wellbeing’
Andrea offers a combination of approaches in bodywork with an aim of helping the individual understand, improve or learn to manage bodily limitation, discomfort and pain. We may explore potential root causes to help prevent patterns recurring if possible.
Andrea qualified in Shiatsu in 2002 and added to her treatment options with Remedial Massage, Manipulation Therapy and Movement Shiatsu. Treatment may involve assessment of body structures, gentle manipulation, stretches, muscular relaxation and joint release with the use of traditional direct massage and bodywork techniques, pressure points and more subtle approaches. The aim is to help the person develop greater self-awareness and knowledge of how to relax deeply.
Remedial Massage uses oil directly on skin. The term comes from the word ‘Remedy’ meaning this type of massage aims to identify the source of an issue and find a helpful solution or improvement. However, there does not have to be an ‘issue’ to book a massage! Anyone can enjoy the benefits of feeling relaxed and having more freedom of movement. Massage can be used to maintain good health and to continue to have an active lifestyle.
Shiatsu is a type of bodywork received fully clothed and originates from Japan, having the same roots as Traditional Chinese Medicine. This treatment can help the person find a deeper connection with themselves and their body, to look at emotional issues and stress stored in the body and to release pain and discomfort. It may help support self-care and life changes which enhance wellbeing. But most importantly, it may help you feel good!
Receiving this kind treatment can be a good complement to exercise and active hobbies or work and to tackling persistent health issues with other therapies such as acupuncture and manipulation (chiropractic or osteopathic treatment) for example.
Andrea has worked in the NHS in mental health for more than twenty years, offering treatments for service users in the past as well as for the general public. She recognises how mental-emotional problems, stress and life factors can impact health and wellbeing. She has varied fields of work including health research and the use of arts in health in addition to Complementary Therapies.
