A head-to-toe stretch helps relieve tension, followed by a massage of the head, neck and back, designed to ease stiffness throughout the body. Targeted strokes revitalise the flow of lymph, returning the body to its natural rhythm. This treatment has a wonderfully rebalancing effect – perfect to ease summertime imbalances, caused by the contrast between soaring temperatures outside and constant air-conditioning indoors.
