Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone therapy is a specialist massage that uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones that are positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along your legs and between the toes.

Aromatherapy Massage (min1hour 15min)
Aromatherapy uses essential oils to treat the 'whole' person holistically.
By using essential oils unique to each clients needs accompanied with a one hour massage aromatherapy can help with many physical and mental health issues.
Essential oils work in several ways. Firstly through our sense of smell which has a direct route to the limbric area of the brain, smells produce an emotional response and revives past memories. (Scent memory survives longer than visual memory.)
Before each treatment the oils chosen will be based on which will most benefit the client then checked with the clients scent memory to make sure it has pleasant connotations.
The second therapeutic quality of aromatherapy is the use of essential oils through the skin, accounting for 12% of our total body mass, massage is a pleasant and effective means of absorbing the benefits of the specifically tailored essential oils in your treatment.
Using both deep tissue and relaxing massage techniques, this is a great massage to increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.
Techniques used are effleurage, petrissage, friction,percussion and passive stretching.

Comments from clients...
I would like to write a review on the treatments I have received from Nova at Novatherapy.
On several occasions Nova has visited my home, she has always come well prepared with plenty of wonderful oils and mixes just what I need at that particular time! Her bed is fantastic, comfortable and sturdy- very easy to doze off on..
Nova’s massage it’s self is second to none, if you are stressed; you get an amazing unwinding and relaxing massage that will set you right! If you have tight or strained muscles which I have had in the past she has magic healing hands that untangle everything and leave you pain free- amazing!!!
I highly recommend Nova for her holistic, professional yet very personal approach to her work.-Rachel Jackson
I don't normally have massages because it ussually takes me the whole session to relax! However, this woman is magic. Within moments I was totally in the zone, it was wonderful. I recommend Novatherapy completely. -Rebecca Deren
After your aromatherapy massage I was finally able to sleep through the night - the lavender in the oils really worked!- lulu Auckram
Very thorough, made me feel relaxed and comfortabl- George Higgins
