Massage based therapies at:
Relax and De-stressCome to Third Space for a relaxing massage to soothe away the stress of a day at work. We offer appointments from 8am until 8pm.
In safe handsOur therapists at Third Space are well qualified and very experience. Sometimes you can go to a well known Spa or resort and receive a treatment (which is often overpriced!) from someone who may be barely qualified and/or experienced. This is not the case at Third Space where our therapists are hand picked for their experience and qualifications.
Targeted TreatmentsOut therapists are able to target specific injuries/ailments you may have while also treating you holistically to put a spring back in your step. Whether you need a Deep Tissue Massage targeting a specific muscle group or a firm massage to break down accumulated muscle ‘knots’ your therapist will assess your needs in your consultation and discuss the planned treatment in detail with you.
LocationNot only are we located at a convenient city centre location we also have a private car park which is a rarity in central Cardiff! If you are using public transport we are a 10 minute walk from Queen Street train station.
Third Space - Relaxation room
If you are having an hour massage/treatment you are welcome to use our relaxation room before and after to unwind
This 60 minute treatment costs £45 for the intial session (includes a consultation) and £40 for subsequent treatments. Amatsu is completed clothed and involves using unique soft tissue pressure and mobilisation techniques to treat your whole body, not just the symptoms. It is a whole body treatment that works with the body’s soft tissue (e.g. muscles, tendons, fascia) to help to re-balance other key mechanical and energetic structures (e.g. the spine, bones, joints and meridian circuits). Treatments (balances) are suitable for people of all age groups and those with limited mobility.
Amatsu at Third Space is carried out by Hannah who has undertaken a 2 year course in this therapy.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage (DTM) is a technique used by manual therapists that uses firm, penetrating pressure to reach the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Traditional massage is designed to be relaxing and gentle on the muscles. DTM on the other hand is designed to break down stiff and tight muscles in an attempt to alleviate aches and pains.
DTM can be used all over the body; whether you suffer from tension in the neck and shoulders or more of an ache in the pelvis and legs.
DTM sessions are £38 and 30 mins long although the initial session is 1 hour (costing £48) as it includes a detailed consultation. This treatment is carried out by Dan our resident Osteopath at Third Space.
Full Aromatherapy Massage
Oils are chosen to benefit you as an individual, this is then applied through massage. Separate oils are often inhaled by the client throughout the treatment to benefit a specific emotional state you may be presenting with. Different oils may be applied in different quantities, topically to specific areas of your body. Anything from one, three or four blends of oils per client may be used, and each blend may range (typically) from two to four oils.
This type of massage is very relaxing and is carried out by Hannah who is well qualified and experienced. Treatment time is 60 minutes. Consultation can take up to an extra 10 minutes. Cost is £55 per session.
Optimal Body Massage
This is a very popular massage at Third Space.
Usually involves the use of oil with a variety of massage techniques using the hands, arms and elbows to warm up and work the muscle tissue, thus releasing tension and breaking up muscle “knots” or adhered tissues, called adhesions. The strength of there massage is adjusted for your preference and can also be tailored to your individual needs which is discussed in the consultation.
Massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension and creates other health benefits. This massage can also help lymphatic drainage. This treatment can be 60 mins long (£50) or 90 mins long (£65) and includes a consultation. This treatment is carried out by Hannah our masseuse at Third Space who is very experienced.
A sports massage is deeper and a firmer massage than an aromatherapy massage and delivered by a qualified sports therapist. The techniques used in Sports massage will concentrate on a particular problem area and will help disperse toxins from knotted and tense muscles and improve the blood supply to the muscle and the area worked on. If you suffer from neck pain and tension of the upper back from sitting in front of a computer screen all day, then this will be the treatment for you. Not just for the sporty! The pressure used will be suitable for your needs.
|60 Minutes with Hot Stones||£59|
Hot Stone Massage
This therapy concentrates on the back and is a great treatment. Placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy centres of the body helps to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, boosting a healing process. The placing of the stones is incorporated with a Swedish massage which can be deeper and more intense as heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles. Hot stone massage is also offered as a full body treatment for 90 minutes.
