What is deep tissue massage and what are the benefits?
The deep tissue massage I practise fuses together techniques from ancient Ayurvedic, Indonesian and Swedish traditions to deliver a truly relaxing and health-enhancing treatment. It uses a combination of long strokes, kneading, skin rolling, stretching and pressure point activation. It is an excellent destresser and is firm , deep and relaxing without being painful.
The benefits of deep tissue massage are to:
- promote the healing process after intense exercise or injury
- improve range of movement
- reduce stress and relieve everyday anxiety
- relax your mind and body – time out for you as part of your self-care
- soothe sore muscles
- boost circulation (both blood and lymph)
- help you sleep better
- improve skin tone
- promote an overall sense of wellbeing
Why Balinese massage?
A couple of years ago I was in the Gili Islands in Indonesia enjoying an incredible Balinese massage next to the ocean, and I made a promise to myself that I would return to Bali and learn how to give other people a similar lovely, relaxing massage experience.
I kept that promise and a couple of years later I studied traditional Balinese massage at the award winning, CIBTAC accredited Jamu Spa School in Nusa Dua, Bali. It’s a professional school with very high standards and I was lucky enough to learn from some of Indonesia’s most experienced tutors. http://jamuspaschool.com/

There is always off-road parking, you are welcome to use our shower facilities and treatments are available throughout the week, including weekends and evenings.
‘My first visit to Reset Mind and Massage for a treat with the lovely Cheryl. Stress free onsite parking available and a lovely welcome on arrival. Really large treatment room, not like other small salons that I’ve visited. A very relaxed environment and full consultation in an informal atmosphere.
I enjoyed a one hour relaxing full body massage with essential oils which was so relaxing, it involved my legs, feet, arms, back, shoulders, face and head …. Just heavenly !! Cheryl also discussed any health concerns and I left with some handy helpful tips … I’ll be seeing you again soon’

Question: Which parts of the body do you massage?
Answer: The full body massage includes the legs, feet, back, shoulders, arms, hands, upper chest, neck, head and face. I will also massage the stomach if the client requests this. I will avoid any area the client prefers me not to touch. My shorter massage treatments allow you to choose focus areas such as legs, or back, neck and shoulders.
Question: What if I don’t like people touching my stomach or my feet?
Answer: That’s quite common and totally fine. I will ask you before the start of the massage if there is anywhere you would prefer me to avoid and I will make sure I don’t go near that area.
Question: Who conducts the massages?
Answer: The massages are always conducted by me (Cheryl). I am qualified to conduct Balinese massage and am fully insured. I will never surprise you with a massage therapist you weren’t expecting at the last minute!
Question: What if I feel uncomfortable stripping off in front of someone I don’t know?
Answer: I will give you a large Balinese sarong to cover yourself up before the start of the massage and I will use this to keep you mostly covered up throughout the massage. I will ask you to strip down to your pants (I leave the room while you do this), but if you prefer to keep your bra on (if you wear one) that’s fine. I will only ever uncover the part that I’m working on. Some of the massage moves are actually done through the sarong, which I’m told by clients feels really good. It’s also worth bearing in mind that the treatment room is Balinese style with relaxing, low level lighting.
Question: What if I haven’t shaved my legs?! Or I haven’t had a shower?
Answer: Just relax and enjoy. It really doesn’t matter and I don’t mind at all. Believe me, I’m totally used to it and I’ve seen it all before! If you’d like to have a shower first, I have shower facilities next to my treatment room that you can use.
Question: What if I prefer not to talk during a massage?
Answer: That’s no problem at all, I totally get that some people find it more relaxing to have an hour of peace and quiet. At the start of the massage I will give you the choice of both of us being quiet throughout the massage. Some of my clients even fall asleep!
