At The Claygate Clinic we offer a variety of massage styles because we know everyone is different and for some a deep massage works well and for others a more gentle and relaxing massage is preferable.
Before the massage there will be a short consultation with the therapist to determine if there are any particular areas that need attention or if you have any health complaints.

Lava Shell Massage
Lava shells are heated by single-use disposable sachets. The therapist inserts a sachet of algae, minerals and dried sea kelp into the shell, then adds an activator liquid. The chemical reaction between the activator and the “lava gel” sachet creates heat that can last up to a couple of hours.
The therapist will begin the treatment with an application of massage oil to help make the strokes smoother. She will then press the heated Lava Shells onto key points of your body to relax your muscles, before using the smooth part of the shells to massage your torso and limbs.
The therapist uses different areas of the Lava Shells to complement particular massage strokes. The knob on the back of the shell can be used to work away at tight knots. The smooth surface of the shell is ideal for applying gentle pressure to calves and arms, and you might feel the therapist using the narrow edge of the Lava Shell to work around tense shoulder blades or between your toes.

Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is beneficial in helping you relax and ease tense muscles throughout your body.
During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. A truly relaxing, de stress Massage.

Therapeutic Massage is a combination of Relaxation Massage and Remedial Massage to not only relax your whole body but at the same time, work through some of the muscle issues or “tight spots” you may be experiencing.
Massage therapy may also improve your circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
Massage therapy induces a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure; plus boosts your immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.

Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage focuses on head, face, neck and shoulders using acupressure points to stimulate blood flow to these areas and was originally used to improve scalp and hair condition. Indian head massage can also relieve aches, pains and tension and also may benefit sinusitis, relieve stress and improve sleep quality.
It is a very relaxing massage and will leave you feeling serene but also clear headed.
What to expect
During the treatment the therapist will use coconut massage combined with essential oils to suit your individual needs. The oil will be applied to the head and scalp which may leave your hair not looking it's best afterwards so you may want to bring a hat or other for when you leave the clinic.
