It utilises focussed movements to release muscle tension and stimulate blood flow and oxygen to specific muscle groups whilst eliminating toxins.
It targets issues such as work related stress, sports recovery and other muscular related conditions.

Dry needling is a treatment that involves using an acupuncture needle.
This form of therapy is used to release tight muscle bands within the muscle fibres and targets trigger points within the muscle which cause pain and discomfort, quickly releasing the tension and increasing mobility and is a very effective means of addressing a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
Services range from 30min to 90min in duration and some services have an optional add-on 15 min foot massage available.
Traditional Thai massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension.
Thai Oil Massage utilises the properties of specific oils to allow the therapist to glide over the body. A mix of stretching, firm pressure, rhythmic massage and rolling techniques are used over the whole body.
Aromatherapy Massage involves similar techniques as used in relaxation massage with an emphasis on connection and energy flow in conjunction with both the aromas and the therapeutic attributes of essential oils.
Clients are left feeling relaxed and revived.
* sessions can be modified to include facial treatments.
Reflexology is a simple, safe and effective form of noninvasive holistic henling. Based on the principle that all areas of the body are represented as reflex points on the feet, hands and ears.
Using finger and thumb techniques to apply pressure to these reflex areas, the corresponding body parts are stimulated bringing about homeostatic changes to help the body to achieve balance and therefore restore wellbeing.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle touch therapy which is powerful, yet subtle and can reduce fluid retention, enhance the body's ability to eliminate toxins from tissues and also support the immune system.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage uses light, rhythmic touch to enhance lymph circulation, improving the flow of lymphocyte cells through the immune system, assisting the body in fighting disease and infection as well as reducing toxin load.
Aromatherapy is used in combination with traditional cleansing, refining, detoxification, toning and moisturising techniques to boost the effects of these treatments and also add the therapeutic qualities of essential oils and other natural ingredients to the treatments.
A typical facial consists of a cleansing exfoliant scrub, a facial massage using essential oils and a detoxifying clay mask. The skin is toned and clarified using natural hydrosols and then finished with natural moisturiser to suit the skin type, leaving the complexion feeling refreshed and glowing.
Vibrational Therapy utilises the energy of the individual, the healer, the environment and the mode of application to heal, balance and maintain the physical, emotional, conscious and subconscious health and well-being of the body. Often vibrational energy imbalances can indicate physical illness long before any physical manifestation occurs in the body.
At Abrosia we use Chakra and Crystal therapy techniques, often in conjunction with subtle Aromatherapy, to help adjust and balance the individual’s vibrational energies.
