It is generally accepted that modern living causes most everyone to experience pressure. Too much pressure can lead to Stress - unless it is managed effectively. Massage can contribute greatly to its management.

Massage is an ancient art with restorative powers that can not only aid relaxation, but improve the body’s circulation, reduce stiffness and ease joint pains.

Lámha Massage Therapy offers many Therapeutic Massage Treatments including Corporate On Site Massage through our sister company COSMIC.

Although massage has grown in popularity, the majority of the public still view massage as decadent, indulgent and somewhat cosmetic rather than healing. Massage is a healing art and the benefits are many.

  • Increases blood flow and lymph flow encouraging oxygen capacity of blood, (i.e. your cells receive more oxygen)
  • Improves posture by balancing muscle activity
  • Increases body metabolism
  • Enhances skin health
  • Soothes neurological system and relaxes the body while also engaging the nerves and increasing organ activity
  • Encourages joint and muscle mobility
  • Induces a sense of relaxation and well-being


Reiki is a hands-on healing process. Beginning in Japan 200 years ago, it is based on the philosophy that everyone has their own healing powers in their body and the Reiki Practitioner acts somewhat like a conduit to help unleash that energy.
Some people believe you must be ill to receive Reiki - not at all. Reiki can help you cope with difficult periods or circumstances in your life, any indecisiveness or any multitude of imbalances. On the other hand, Reiki has been known to heal illnesses and injuries.
Let me also dispel any misgivings that people practicing Reiki are healers. You are your own healer. A Reiki Practitioner is inititated into helping your body find and utilise your own healing powers.

Thermo Auricular Therapy (HOPI Ear Candling)
Using BIOSUN Ear Candles

Ear Candling has a holistic function. A light suction action and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache, headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. These benefits have been well known through 15 years of experience and confirmed by thousands of doctors worldwide.

The physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area.

Treatment may also spontaneously cause freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell, even when the nose was blocked before treatment.

Furthermore, the whole ceremony (which takes 1 hour), brings a wonderful relaxation, a deep sense of security and a feeling of happiness which is seldom experienced.

Hot Stone Massage

Using 'Nature's Healing Stones' (Europe Inc.), this timeless healing technique combines massage with the thermogenic benefits of heated Irish basalt stones. The therapy of Nature's Healing Stone includes the strategic placement of stones on the body to improve energy flow and the incorporation of the stones into classic Western massage techniques. Because of the involvement of heat, the application of the stones acts as a vasodilator:-

  • increasing circulation
  • increasing metabolism
  • increasing the inflammatory response
  • decreasing pain
  • decreasing muscle spasm
  • increasing muscle tone
  • producing a deep and penetrating state of relaxation and well-being
It is an exquisite treatment to have or to give as a special gift to someone. Treatments range from back, neck & shoulders only to a full hour and a half treatment at very reasonable prices.

Pregnancy Massage

Sleeplessness, Backache, Headache, Poor Circulation, Oedema, Anxiety; Many women suffer these and other minor complaints during pregnancy as well as during breastfeeding and as a result of carrying small children. Gentle massage can often help to relieve these problems, promoting relaxation, easing away stiffness and tension, reducing swelling and improving blood flow. Perhaps you'd like to take advantage of having time to yourself before baby arrives. Whatever the reason, we can provide the treatment that suits you best.
Tara is specifically trained in Massage during Pregnancy. Advice can also be provided regarding exercise and stretching during pregnancy to help energise, encourage a sleepful night, relax, maintain muscle tone and strengthen in preparation for childbirth.
