The remedial massage helps prevent injury and targets the causes of postural muscular tension, headaches, circulation problems and other muscle-related pain. Maintain Massage is ideal for those who spend long hours sitting at desks or in front of a screen or whose bodies are begging for a break from our active lifestyles. Make a booking here.
While most massages focus on the physical, the treatments at Aroma Massage tucked away on Durham Lane appeal to other senses and sensations. Their body retreat will melt away the stress of your day. You'll enjoy treatments from head to toe starting with a spa foot ritual then a inidian head massage and onto any choice of body massage - why not take a partner or friend to sit back and relax alongside you.
