Deep Tissue Massage
‘’Bliss for tired, tight and sore muscles’’
Are you in pain? Do you feel your muscles are knotted, tense or stiff in specific areas? Deep Tissue massage at Sesto Senso Wellness Care is the treatment that can relive you from these symptoms.
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that is used mainly to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries and chronic pain. Our therapists in addition to their palms and fingers, will use their elbows and forearms to increase the pressure on the body. Using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues, they will help break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce the tension in muscles and tissues. The improvement in the blood flow will reduce inflammation promoting faster healing.
Despite the intensity of the deep tissue massage, the client will mentally unwind and achieve deep relaxation.

Indian Head Massage
‘’Rebalancing the three higher chakras – mind, body and spirit ’’
Although the name may suggest that we focus on the head only, at Sesto Senso Wellness Care we work the shoulders, arms, neck, face and scalp, as we are well aware that tension builds up in these areas due to poor posture and emotional and physical stress. Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years as part of the health care practice of Ayurveda. It stimulates blood and lymph circulation, encourages efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the hair and scalp and improves the elimination of waste products. Our therapists will use a variety of deep massage techniques, including circular massage strokes on the scalp, deep tissue work on the shoulders and stretching of the neck. The massage therapy helps relieve aches, pains and tension in the shoulders and neck, it will clear your sinuses, relieve stress, help you sleep better and improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow.
Indian head massage is probably the most accessible holistic treatment as it can be done with no undressing or use of specialist equipment. You may either sit on a chair, or if you prefer you may lie down on the massage table. It’s all up to you!
‘’The real taste of smell’’
If you would like to boost the effects of a therapeutic Swedish massage, we recommend Aromatherapy. At Sesto Senso Wellness Care we use organic essential oils during your Swedish massage. Our therapists will select the best combination of essential oils to blend with our base oil according to your individual needs. You will be involved in the selection process as you will be asked to smell the various blends.
During your aromatherapy massage, you inhale the essential oil molecules or absorb them through your skin. They will promote beneficial changes to your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain linked to our emotions.
Absorb through your sense of smell these essential oils to ‘lift’ your emotions, to increase feelings of wellness and to enhance your physical and psychological well-being for whole body healing.
Sesto Sesto Hot Stone Massage
‘’A heated healing experience for a new you’’
A signature massage that takes relaxation to the next level. It is a combination of a Swedish and Deep Tissue massage incorporating therapeutic warm stones. At Sesto Senso Wellness Care we love gathering our stones from our own rivers and seas as they carry the powerful energy of our island. During your therapy session the stones will be immersed in warm water and will act as an extension of your therapist’s hands. The localized heat and the weight of the stones, warm and relax the muscles very quickly. Your therapist will use both hot stones and hand strokes to manipulate the deeper muscle tissues for greater muscle relaxation, decreased muscle spasms, increased agility and reduced pain.
Don’t be surprised if, as a result of the heat and the energy of the stone melting away all of your tension, you fall sleep during your hot stone massage.
