Massage is a deeply relaxing, de-stressing and pain relieving treatment. It has existed in some form across the globe for millenia and Zen Ten Spa delivers award-winning massages for every condition from pain relief to pamper, from heavy pressure deep tissue and sports massage, to highly specialist pregnancy and palliative massage.
An expert massage brings fast and effective relief to injured tissue and aching muscles. It de-stresses and lifts mood all without the need to resort to pharmaceuticals. Whilst all spa and salon massage treatments aim to relieve pain and muscle tension, travelling to and from a salon or spa means that symtpoms return immediately after your massage. Calling our mobile spa out to you in Warwick, Leamington Spa, Solihull, Coventry, Birmingham and beyond means there is no travel after your massage, so the fantastic feeling you get after our treatments stays with you.
OUR MASSAGE CHOICES
Zen Ten Spa offers the widest range of massage techniques of any spa in the UK. The massage systems are drawn from across the globe and range from the better known Swedish Massage, Sports Massage and lymph drainage massage to Hawaiian Lomi Massage, Balinese massage and Chinese Jade Massage.We also deliver “Cupping” which is a reverse massage that “lifts” rather than puts pressure on the skin and fascia tissue to relieve tension. With a Zen Ten Spa massage, because our single therapist is trained in all techniques, you have the unique opportunity to design your own treatment by requesting a blend of the therapies you prefer.
WHY IT WORKS:
Massage, meaning “friction of kneading” in French, is the manipulation of muscle and connective tissue by hands and fingers. Our therapist may also use their forearm, elbows or feet. Specialist equipment such as wooden rollers, hot stones, crystals, cupping globes or our exclusive Chinese Jade Massage tools can also be used within your treatment. Pressure will be applied in stroking and kneading movements either for specific areas such as back, legs, arms or a facial massage or combined into a luxurious full body massage.
The aim of massage is to manipulate the soft tissues ie muscles, tendons and ligaments for pain relief, improved function and relaxation. In “Cupping” specially designed glass globe-cups are warmed with a flame which also creates a vacuum in the globe. Rimmed with aromatherapy oils, they are then gently applied to the areas being treated. The effect of the vacuum within the globe is to gently lift the skin and fascia in the cupped area manipulating the soft tissue in a “reverse massage”.
Unlike most spas and salons who use standard massage tables or uncomfortable front-facing metal framed chairs, at Zen Ten Spa we have a range of specially designed treatment supports, adapted to enable both seated and lying treatments, accommodating any needs from pregnancy to limited mobility and injury support.
We offer massages with pure organic essential oil blends or bespoke creams and silky massage powders applied directly to the skin. We also deliver acupressure massage through clothing for those who prefer not to undress. All massage procedures are non-invasive and painless, even our deep tissue and manipulation massages are pressure graded to your instructions ensuring you do not experience the discomfort so often felt with some masseurs.
THE TOP TEN BENEFITS OF MASSAGE:
•Improving Skin Condition – massage improves elasticity, exfoliates and creates nourishment from the creams or oils used. It also disperses adipose (fat) build up
•Increasing Circulation – massage stimulates the blood flow leads to increased efficiency of the delivery of nutrients and the removal of waste products by the blood
•Massage Stimulates the Lymphatic System – improving lymph drainage with massage helps the body to expel toxins in waste
•Massage Eases Muscle Tension – breaking down the crystalline build up in muscles by kneading and releasing and soothing tired muscles
•Massage Encourages Correct Posture and Skeletal Realignment – where poor seating positions or gait have led to abnormal positioning of joints, massage releases the stress and tension of muscles and re-alignment occurs.
•Improved Digestion – Abdominal massage can increase the efficiency of a sluggish digestive system by stimulating peristalsis
Massage Benefits the Mind by:
•Merely taking the time out from work or other commitments to have a massage has a relaxing, calming effect
•Massage is a passive exercise but still releases the endorphins of sport. Whilst you are totally relaxed, the body is still being “worked” with similar benefits to exercise.
•The easing of pain associated with massage improves outlook and attitude lifting mood and promoting positivity.
•Increased blood flow to the brain and stimulation of the nervous system during massage reverses the “fight or flight” effects of stress.
Zen Ten Spa Massages are transformational.
