Alice is the masseuse/practitioner and has a gentle, relaxed, coolness about her. She took me to a room in her home, I felt like I was in Byron Bay and smelt like oils combined with fresh air and the seaside. I felt like time didn't exist in this world and that's cool because for a moment, I didn't care about it either.
Alice is so passionate and knowledgeable about what she does and you can't help but feel the same. She thoroughly checks you out prior to the massage. She measures your height and tests for any reactions to oils, as well as many other things.
The first 30 minutes of my massage was a Vita flex technique massage on my feet. This is an ancient tibetan version of reflexology, using oils. I really hate my feet being touch, I have a scar across the bottom of my right foot and it's extremely sensitive. I agree to a light massage on that foot even though inside I was starting to panic at the thought of someone touching it. It was ok, in fact I caught myself falling asleep a few times. I only pulled myself out of slumber because I needed to know what you tell you and my tummy growled loudly a few times. So, big tick for the Vita flex foot massage.
The second half of my massage was concentrating on my back, shoulders and neck. Alice used 9 different therapeutic grade oils, these included Peppermint, thyme, basil, oregano and these were feathered in.
Yes, these are all the oils she used on me.
