Soul Stretch Events create beautiful healing spaces which invite people to relax and unwind. Here at the London Wellbeing Festival we’ve created a blissful wellbeing spa for massage and rejuvenation. We offer a variety of treatments, you can choose between a 30 or 60 minute full body massage delivered by our top therapists with natural, organic products in beautifully decorated healing spaces helping you to feel relaxed and nourished in the midst of the busy festival fun.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils chosen specifically during your consultation to create changes in our bodies and energy fields. It can be performed as a back massage or via the blending of oils, creams, lotions or products to be used after the treatment, at home. A 30 minute session can be a consultation and blending session including the making of a product specific to your needs or a 15/20 minute back massage. A 60 minute session can include a blending consultation and a full reflexology or back massage treatment using the blended product.
Craniosacral therapy is a non invasive treatment performed upon the head, neck, spine and lower back (sacral region) - by localised pressure points and gentle pressure manipulations to these areas this therapy works to unlock tension not only with the muscles physically but also emotionally and mentally. A 30 minute treatment can focus on a selected issue or problem, a 60 minute session can realign deeper seated problems or more complex issues.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage uses slow, firm strokes and pressure to ease and release tension and toxins deep in your muscles. Your therapist will use deep pressure that concentrates on particular areas helping your body to refresh and relax. The treatment increases the blood flow and therefore the oxygen flow around your body and allows your muscles to strengthen and heal. A 30 minute treatment can focus on a selected issue or problem, a full body massage can be performed in a 60 minute session.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot stone massage uses smooth heated granite stones to release deep muscle tension without using deep pressure techniques. The localised heat is both soothing and relaxing. A 30 minute session will focus on one area of tension, generally upper or lower back, quads or backs of legs. A 60 minute treatment will cover the full back and backs of legs.
Reflexology is performed fully clothed, by applying gentle pressure to areas of the feet, hands or ears (according to your preference) to stimulate all of the body systems. It is a relaxing and effective treatment for stress, physical ailments, on-going problems and general energy rebalancing. A 30 minute taster session will work upon 1 or two specific issues, a 60 minute long treatment will rebalance all of the body systems for the best overall effect.
The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. This system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication. Reiki is given fully clothed in a quiet and peaceful environment. Your practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.
As a receiver, your experience will include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored. Sessions can take 30 minutes or an hour depending on your needs and preference.
A stimulating and relaxing massage treatment to relieve knots and tension throughout the body with gentle and consistent massage strokes. A 30 minute treatment will be performed either on the back or legs as required by the client. A full body massage can be performed in a 60 minute session.
Sports massage is used to help fix over tight or problem muscle groups. It works to realign muscle memory and correct postural problems. A 30 minute session will work on one target problem area, a 60 minute session will include a full postural alignment and massage session.
Shiatsu treatments can help to relieve physical pain, heal from injury, realign your body, reduce stress, re-energise weaker areas and ease areas which are overworking. Treatments help calm the nervous system and promote relaxation, this can help to improve your mood, boost energy levels, relieve tension and aid your sleep. By assisting the body to work harmoniously, we can help prevent imbalances from developing into symptoms of dis-ease. Treatments are given through loose clothing that enables comfort throughout your treatment, with complete freedom of movement. A 30 minute treatment can focus on a selected issue or problem, a 60 minute massage can be performed in an hour long session.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
Thai Yoga Massage uses an energy line system called the Ten Sen, through which the body's natural life force flows. During this treatment, your therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to key points along the energy lines, together with gentle stretching and applied Hatha Yoga poses. This releases blocked energy and frees the body's healing potential, restoring balance and harmony.Thai Yoga Massage is always practised in a meditative mood. It is said to be "the physical application of loving kindness". Treatments are given through loose clothing that enables comfort throughout your treatment, with complete freedom of movement. A 30 minute session will focus on one area of tension, generally shoulders, neck and upper back. A 60 minute treatment will cover the full back and backs of legs.
We have created a luxurious half hour MOA facial for you using purely organic products.
