At HappyTree Yoga we offer a variety of Wellness Services ranging from a traditional Swedish massage to holistic nutrition to Japanese Reiki.
The Swedish massage is one of the well-known and common massage practices in the Western World. Both relaxing and therapeutic, each session is performed according to your needs and can be anything from a soothing and gentle period of relaxing to an invigorating and therapeutic deep tissue experience.
The massotherapist begins by first oiling your skin and releasing the knots and tensions in your body by gliding and kneading your muscles with their hands. Remember to communicate with your therapist as to whether you prefer a light or heavy touch, and help them hone in and focus on the parts of your body which require the most attention.

Thai Yoga Massage
While the Thai Massage might be relatively new to Western Spas, the technique was perfected over 1500 years ago by Buddhist monks. This ancient form of massage is designed to increase your flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and help balance the body’s internal energy systems. People leaving Thai massage sessions often do so feeling both relaxed and energized.
During a session, a specialist will work with your body while you lie relaxed on a floor mat. The specialist will engage in a number of techniques that involve moving and moulding your body according to various postures each designed increase your flexibility. You will feel your muscles strengthen over the course of the session, and leave feeling like you underwent a light work-out. Clients are encouraged to wear loose clothing that they will feel comfortable stretching in as these sessions often involve techniques similar to yoga postures.

The stress of everyday life, work and relationships will eventually take its toll on your body and health. As your stress levels rise, your natural energy systems become tangled and unresponsive, leading to a decline in physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. BodyTalk seeks to reconnect your internal lines of communication as nature intended them and help restore your energy levels to their optimum best.
By working with the body’s natural wisdom and healing powers, the BodyTalk specialist is able to communicate with your body through muscular feedback and discern which energy channels are in need of attention. Once the channels are located, the specialist is able to guide your body’s healing energies to the areas in need and help accelerate the recuperative process. This practice is a simple, effective and a standalone holistic treatment which helps your body re-synchronize its energy systems.

Holistic and Integrative Nutrition
Complete nutrition is about more than just food and simple dieting techniques. While traditional diets and lifestyle programs rarely look beyond the standard calorie counts and food groups, the HappyTree holistic health and nutrition program looks at the big picture.
During each session, our holistic nutrition specialists will help you to devise a living scheme that incorporates personal, environmental, physical and spiritual considerations tailored to the specific needs of your body, energy systems and life. By making small but well-placed changes to your lifestyle, you will experience a renewed sense of wellbeing and feel your body and its energies return to their optimum levels.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massages are designed to relieve severe muscle and joint tension in your body and improve inner connectivity of your energy systems. This type of massage focuses on your inner layer of muscles that can be hard to connect with through traditional massage techniques.
Deep tissue massages are strongly recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain in their body or who regularly take part in heavy and strenuous physical activities, such as athletes who are at a greater risk for deep tissue damage. It is not uncommon to leave a deep tissue massage session with your pains replaced by a regular muscle ache, such as what often comes with exercise, but disappears after a day or two.
Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese holistic healing and relaxation treatment that seeks to reconnect the client’s body with the natural flow of life energy, or Ki, that passes through all things. In a Reiki session, the client lies down on a mat or massage table while the specialist places their open palms gently against or slightly above the client’s body, facilitating the flow of Ki. The client’s body will then naturally draw in additional life energy until their body finds a suitable equilibrium.
During the treatment, you will experience absolute peace and serenity, leaving each session feeling glowing and radiant. While the technique is simple, the results are amazing.
