Sublime Massage Range
I offer a variety of massage therapies for you, whether it is a Sports Massage for an aggravated injury, or a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage to help the cleansing of metabolic waste. You may choose a Holistic Massage to relax, a Colon and Deep Organ Massage to improve digestion or a Natural Face Lift to soothe those lines away. Maybe a Hot & Cold Stone Massage to relieve muscle spasms and soreness. If you are a wheelchair user or space is limited then the versatility of Seated Massage is ideal.
Physical activity can cause strain within the muscles and soft tissues. While the body is recovering from this strain, other areas compensate resulting in large areas of the body aching and becoming inflexible. Manipulation of muscles and soft tissues stimulates them to heal and the risk of further injury is reduced.
If you are troubled with anxiety, stress a Sublime treatment will allow you to escape and discover relaxation and inner harmony.
The effect of receiving a massage is that, by restoring the body’s own harmony and clearing imbalances, it leaves you feeling relaxed and at peace. Allow yourself to discover the freedom and balance within your own body through having a massage.
Massage is given by the therapist using their palms, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, forearms and elbows. The Therapist integrates Simple Hands Free techniques of the arms and elbows with traditional massage movements increasing the possible combination of strokes and pressure used throughout the treatment and preventing the therapist hands becoming over worked or injured.
You will be able to choose from a range of massage oils which will be used for your treatment, based on your skin type, preference etc.
You will be asked to undress to your underwear. Towels will be used to maintain your modesty throughout the course of the treatment.
For extra comfort and luxury to your Massage treatment (Hot and Cold Stone Massage and Sports Massage excepted) you can choose to lay on a water cushion. This will mean that there is no rolling over over during the treatment as the back can be massage from underneath. Filled with warm water the cushion shapes to your back providing a lovely support while relaxing tension from the muscles and soft tissue. Please note if requesting this please notify before arriving for your appointment, so it can be prepared or you.
The length of time that a massage takes depends on the massage therapies chosen and area that will be treated.

Sublime also provides Reflexology, Reiki & Access Bars® treatments
If you are troubled with anxiety, stress a Sublime treatment will allow you to escape from the world and discover relaxation and inner harmony.
Feeling out of sorts? Reflexology brings natural balance between the systems of the body.
Reflexology is traditionally given by massaging and applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands. Different zones of the foot or hand correspond to various part of the body so facilitating relief from physical pain, reducing symptoms of many health conditions and emotional re-balancing.
The lower leg or arm will be massaged and stretched to increase the blood flow and encourage lymphatic drainage of waste, improving skin tone and soothing the nerve endings. The therapist applies firm pressure using their thumbs and fingers in a continuous fluid movement over each reflex zone. At times they will pivot on an area to apply extra pressure to stimulate and improve the energy flow which encourages the body to establish its own equilibrium.
Reflexology promotes natural deep relaxation which has great health benefits since approximately 75% of diseases are stress related.
You will remain fully dressed, but if wearing trousers these are to be rolled up to the knee or removed if necessary to avoid creasing.

Need to bring peace and balance to your mind, body and spirit then a Reiki treatment is your answer.
Reiki is non-intrusive healing where the universal energy is channeled by the therapist enabling the receiver to restore their own natural harmony and balance, alleviating many symptoms of illness, stress and anxiety. When you open up to receiving Reiki it will re-balance your energy channels to allow the healing you need.
Reiki channels the universal energy within us to flow more freely allowing deep relaxation and stress levels to be reduced so harmony is restored to the mind, body and spirit. It enables self-healing to occur and it can alleviate anxiety and diminish feelings of fatigue. Aches and pains to dwindle away.
The therapist's hands will be placed gently on or over areas of the body, with no manipulation or substances applied during the treatment allowing Reiki to be given with the client fully-dressed either lying down or seated.
Want help to empower yourself to bring change and more possibilities into your life?
The Therapist lightly places their palms and finger tips on the head, to stimulate 32 point to dissipate the electrical charge of polarity that's stored in the brain. Allowing you to become more present in life, leaving the past behind to build a brighter future for yourself. Having a Bars treatment before exams or interviews is very beneficial, as Stress is soothed away allowing you to be more focused.

Before and After your Treatment
Prepare for some healing as Holistic Therapy is merited for being a most effective remedy for many conditions since stress is a big cause of illness.
How do you choose which therapy to have?
I would suggest that you honour the healing needs of your body, mind and spirit and ask yourself what is most important?
If it is physical aches or stress then Massage. If it's a general balance and multiply issuses the Reflexology would be of benifit. Rieki for spirit harmony and to regain your self love. When you do not know what to do next or are frustrated then choose Acess Bars®.
If reqcuesting Hot & Cold Stone Massage or Water Cushion please notify Sublime before arriving for your appointment, so these can be prepared for you.

Social media often causes us to see ourselves in a negative way. It encourages us to compare ourselves to others in every way, leaving us feeling unhappy about ourselves.
Instead we should focus on the things we enjoy, interact with others face to face.
Begin to enjoy being ourselves not others, after we are who we are and we cannot be someone else no matter how hard we try.
This doesn't mean we don't strive to improve, develop in areas we want to.
Many moons ago I was encouraged to read Bounce by Matthew Syed. I finally read it while on holiday in France, it talks about the power of practice being much more influential than talent, or being the right body shape or which ethic group you are from, for success in any sport. A really good read but it was not till the last page I was bowled over with this line
" If we could only ditch our race tinted spectacles,the world would not only look very different, it would soon become very different too."
