Swedish and Deep massage by Tom! (excellent for sports or pure relaxation)
I've now been providing massage on Uist for 12 years from my 'Studio Rooms' at 41 Airport Road and 35 Winfield Way, Balivanich.
Available at times to suit your needs.
Evenings and weekends or early mornings are also an option.
Find time for yourself & enjoy the pleasure of a relaxing massage, it's a great way to unwind & let the tension melt away!
It's also a useful aid to speed up your recovery after a tough exercise class or other strenuous activity.
Treat yourself to either a 'Neck, Back and Shoulders' or opt for the fantastic 'Full Body'!
Why book with me?....
For Lots of choice, you decide with Full Body or Legs whether you'd like, Mid Thigh, Upper Thigh or Upper with *Glutes (*biggest muscle in your body).
I also offer long time periods for enhanced relaxation to really perform a good massage.
(not your 'off the shelf' factory massage..but unique to your physique) (unlike 'some' of those 'one size fits all' Spa Massages carried out relentlessly day in and day out!)
Other options available...Guys can also receive massage on the chest.
Or for Men and Women - abdominals / belly can also be included.
Just have a look at the request sheet on the bottom of this page for full details!
Nb - this service can also be combined before or after, Personal Training sessions or Snorkelling / Freediving!
This service is available to men and women, please contact me if you'd like any more info! (recommendations, click!)
Massage is just one sector within my multi-field business .... which is a reason why when I do 'choose' to offer my services I can really give 100% and do an amazing incredible job!
The best you have had!
Massage that really hits the mark and connects with the client, massage that instils a sense of freedom and a feeling that your body can float!
This does not come quickly - I specialise in long time periods and totally unrushed massage, massage that flows naturally and is unique and adapted to the clients' physique.
By fully relaxing into the massage and allowing my own energy and thoughts to transfer through to the client I can reach a level of calmness that allows for hours of intuitive and effective massage to pass by with ease.
I do not wish time away. Massage, when performed correctly, isn't a burden - quite the opposite. This is when massage really works!!
By giving the gift of time I can really affect a noticeable difference, the type which just doesn't happen with shorter timescales.
My 2 and 3 Hour Full Body Massage is the ultimate in pure and slow - undisturbed mindfulness. It's your chance to really switch off and finally obtain some proper decent 'you time'. When you feel aware that you still have plenty of time remaining - then this in itself is self-perpetuating and will help you to fully relax, let go and then hence attain the best possible results from your massage!
Now also flying into Glasgow and Edinburgh, plus monthly 'work-camps' in Market Harborough to visit clients at their homes, hotels or chosen salon - contact me to book and for pricing.

Introduction to Swedish and Deep (sports) massage by Tom
The Lacroix and Lidell method uses many elements and strokes of both soft and deep tissue sports massage to give total satisfaction with a sense of completeness to the discerning client.
It can be used all over the body, ie glutes, head, feet, abs / belly; at the prior signed for request of the client and is offered to all accessible areas of the clients' physique.
In addition to in-depth study of the above two publications and many clients over the past 12 years, I have trained with the 'Therapy Training School' and completed their diploma in Swedish Massage which included on-line study, manuals, and practical training with assessments in Glasgow.
My training was certified by 'The Guild of Holistic Therapists' and the 'International Institute for Complementary Therapists' and I am insured with 'Salon Gold'.
If this appeals to you, and you'd like to try my relaxing, enjoyable and highly effective massage then please contact me and arrange a time convenient to yourself.
Booking is essential within busy periods! (at the moment!)
If you have any of your own music which you'd like to bring along then please do so, otherwise, my relaxation or other suitable tracks can be selected.
Luxurious white towels and plump pillows offer comfort and warmth, allowing your body and mind to relax and drift away whilst your position is firmly supported on a 'massage imperial' black sturdy couch.
Refreshments are included or you can bring along your own.
The massage takes place at my 'studio room' at 35 Winfield Way or within your home or Hotel Room.
After a brief initial consultation (with no time lost from your massage!) I'll explain to you what your massage could entail and then you simply sign for the areas you'd like included in your massage and note any particular requests, ie - lots of time on the feet or sore lower back etc...
Other 'add-on' options for your massage:
MBW - Moisturising C-Film, Body or Leg Wrap - You can also include an optional 'Apricot Kernel Moisturising Leg Wrap'! (for skin nourishment and not weight loss)
If applied to your legs at the start of your 3 hour 'Full Body Massage' then this will be in position for at least one hour, so you'll get the maximum benefit from the liberally applied oil's properties. (You can also add it onto a 1.5 or 2 Hour Full Body). High in proteins, Vitamin's A, B and E and one of the most potent natural antioxidants. Neutralising free radicals and protects and nourishes the skin. Your legs will be the smoothest they've ever felt! Firmly applied from the tip of your toes to your upper thigh. Including a 'bottom lift' if asked for.
The compression from the cling film can also stimulate Lymph Drainage and aid in dispersing water / fluid retention. This treatment feels like a 'very snug hug for your legs' with the added result of a oilated and nourished epidermis.
(the direction of rotation and method used is a 'key factor' in a successful firm uplifting bottom lift / wrap without causing discomfort, you will feel the lift!!)
^^Arms and anywhere else can be included at your request!
^^If this is a preferred option then you could alternatively substitute the first hour from the 3 Hour to include an hour of a Full/Upper Body Wrap for total coverage, this approach would leave your legs wrapped for approx' 1 hour 40 whilst the remainder of your body is massaged - total massage time would be in excess of 2 Hours with longer time spent initially on your face, neck and hands. (I allow extra time for the initial process of wrapping and oil application, so NO time is lost from your Massage!)

Reciprocal Massage (you will not find this elsewhere!)
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Massage but lacked the opportunity plus the necessary model?
Massage although nice to receive is also incredibly relaxing to give to others - so relaxing that it can even be slightly hypnotic but in a good meditative way! Anxiety, tension and breathing is calmed as you proceed to give time and thought to others. Your mind will clear and your thoughts will roll calmly like waves breaking softly on a shoreline. This is Yoga for your mind!
So... with the 'Reciprocal Massage' 'Add-on', you yourself, after enjoying a 1.5, 2 or 3 Hour Full Body Massage can then after a quick change of places and 5-minute interval, massage the Massager. This is not instructional and you are free to be creative as you see fit. Every single physique is different - your instinct will guide you.
You can choose: between either a 30 min or 1-hour 'add-on' as priced on my list.
RTI - Rossi / Thai Infusion
This is a floor-based Massage combining my 'Lacroix and Lidell' technique with elements of Thai Massage, Yoga, Acupressure and Reflexology. It has a degree of much closer contact due to the very nature of positioning when omitting the use of a standard massage table / couch. My feet, legs, knees, forearms, elbows and own bodyweight is utilised and it is also necessary to straddle at times whilst mainly supported in order to deliver this massage whilst protecting my own posture. It's a very dynamic and physical flowing form of seamless Massage which some would describe as a type of dance. I'd recommend that you try my 'Full Body Massage' before requesting this alternative but equally satisfying form of Massage.
Ladies Night!! - An evening of Massage and Fun! - Email me for details or reservations - (Facebook messenger doesn't always work!)
Ideal for Ladies Nights in with your girlfriends or Hen Nights.
So how the 'Ladies Night' works is that you and your girlfriends first choose how long you'd like me to attend for. This could either be for six hours from 6pm until 12pm or for ten hours from 4pm until 2am!
The host could then receive a 3 Hour Full Body Massage or 2 hours if they don't want to leave their friends for too long and this could happen at the start of the evening.
You are able to add on any extras that you'd like and this is included in the price of the evening, ie - Wraps or Essential Oil Massage or Reciprocal - basically you can receive as much or as little as you'd like from me. And you can mix and match massage times so all your friends who'd like one - get one!
There is much more detail / optional 'party' services to the 'Ladies Night' and you will need to contact me for further information and a link to the page on my website. (page is not on the menu - message me for a link!)
If you are looking for a night to remember, different to any other 'girls night in'. Then don't delay and message me today!!
