Back, neck & Shoulder Massage
Do you live in Moulsecoomb, Ovingdean, Patcham or Portslade By Sea? You can enjoy our back, neck and shoulder massage. Loosely based on the Swedish massage, our massage is a shorter form of the full bodywork and it targets your upper body. Our massage therapists in Brighton use a light to medium touch akin to what you can get with craniosacral therapy or we can cater for a deeper pressure if you prefer. Most physicians will agree that this massage is perfect for Brighton and Hove residents who are experiencing a stiff neck, backache or pain in their upper body.
Other therapy options available for back, neck and shoulder pain include an Indian Head massage to relieve tension in your neck and head or a hot stone or bamboo massage to relax your tense muscles. We also offer aromatherapy and mediterranean candle massages which are designed to ease pain.
Our massage therapists are professionals who will pamper you and relieve your stress and tension.
Bamboo Massage Therapy
Ancient Chinese scholars used thin slivers of bamboo to write and record history, and bamboo was also used in the manufacture of musical instruments. It was incorporated into their daily lives and soon, it became a form of spiritual expression with healing connotations.
At Match Skin Salon Brighton, we offer deep tissue massage where we use bamboo stalks. This means that our massage therapists don’t use their hands during the massage but, instead, use a roll of heated bamboo to reduce pain in your joints and ligaments and warm your muscles. The firmness of the bamboo, allows the therapist to knead deeper than they could with bare hands.
Our Brighton massage therapists warm the bamboo sticks at room temperature and use the warmed sticks on your body with deep, direct strokes that break down tension and release tight muscles similar to the results when you undergo myofascial release.
The silica in the bamboo extracts also help your body absorb essential minerals and improve lymph drainage, joint stiffness and clarity of mind as well as aiding the release of endorphins.

Deep Tissue Massage
Looking for relief from tension and muscular knots? Having trouble sleeping at night? Need help to feel more focused? A deep tissue massage at Match Skin Salon Brighton is the perfect solution.
Our experienced massage therapists use forearms, thumbs and elbows to stretch out tense and shortened muscles. Your massage therapist will focus on all your areas of muscle tension to realign fascia and muscle, lengthen short muscles, relieve pain, aid relaxation, improve range of motion and improve posture.
The biggest benefit of having a deep tissue massage at Relaxing Massage Therapies in Brighton is that it focuses on a specific. The session begins with lighter pressure to prepare the muscles before starting to use more specific techniques. These techniques include friction applied to your muscles to realign tissue fibres and a deep gliding pressure on your muscle fibres using the stripping technique. You may feel some discomfort in areas of scar tissue, so, please inform your massage therapist if you suddenly experience a sharp pain during the message so that they can adjust the technique.
Hot Stone Massage
Living in West Blatchington, Westdene, Whitehawk, Withdean, Saltdean and Woodingdean? Looking for a massage that eases and relaxes damaged soft tissue and tense muscles in your body? Match Skin Salon Brighton offers hot stone massage therapy with smooth, black, heated stones.
We use a volcanic rock known for its heat retention properties, and your Brighton spa therapists warm the stones in water until they reach the recommended temperature between 120 and 130 degrees Fahrenheit. We then place the heated, flat stones on specific areas of your body including your feet/toes, chest, stomach, spine, face and palms. Our massage therapists borrow techniques from the Swedish massage such as vibration, long strokes, kneading, circular movements and tapping with the stones. We also sometimes switch cold stones for hot stones to soothe your skin and calm engorged blood vessels.
Hot stone massage in Brighton helps to ease pain and muscle tension, increasing the flow of blood to affected parts of your body. Alternating it with cold therapy also relieves inflammation.
If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, a hot stone massage is a natural alternative to sleeping aids. Research shows you will sleep better with a hot stone massage session lasting 30 minutes or longer. The strokes using hot stones are deeper and 10 times more efficient than a traditional massage. It also helps to relieve pain from fibromyalgia, a condition associated with chronic pain.
For your safety and wellbeing, it is crucial that you choose a licensed massage therapist to administer a hot stone massage. We do not heat the stones with an oven, microwave or slow cooker.
Reflexology Massage Therapy
Reflexology is a type of massage that stimulates the nerves on your feet to restore your body’s natural balance. Ancient Chinese healers worked on the feet and hands to prevent disease and promote good health. Traditional Chinese medicine used acupressure, acupuncture, exercise and herbalism to revitalise a person’s energy or life force by connecting with 14 major meridians in the body, most of which are found on the tips of your toes and fingers.
Reflexology is a holistic healing technique that incorporates acupressure and massage on the feet. The organs of your body are mapped out on your foot and worked on to promote healing and maintain good health. It is a powerful tool for stress relief and relaxation. And can also improve your digestive and immune system.
If you live in East Moulsecoomb , Whitehawk, West Blatchington and other areas in Brighton, Match Skin Salon’s offers an experienced team of 12 massage therapists, an acupuncturist and three osteopaths. We provide an exceptional level of care that relaxes your feet and heals your body.
Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy. It hinges on the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet corresponding to organs, glands and other parts of the body. When administered by a Match Skin Salon professional, it promotes the correct nerve impulse functioning, improves blood supply and relieves tension in your body.
Specific conditions reflexology treats include oedema, insomnia, tension, skin conditions such as eczema and acne, menstrual problems, respiratory conditions, body pain and sinusitis.
Foot massages began in Asia. They were used for centuries to relax the body and mind whilst improving health and wellbeing. The foot massage therapy at Match Skin Salon Brighton borrows from Reflexology and Shiatsu. Here, we apply pressure to over 7,000 nerves in your foot to release blockages in your entire body.
Our foot massage therapy is ideal for residents of Brighton including Woodingdean, Whitehawk, Rottingdean and Waterhall who work long hours at a desk or even where you’re on your feet for the entire day. The resulting lack of mobility, or too much mobility could affect your health and lead to a buildup of stress and muscle tension.
Our top quality reflexology foot massage in Brighton leads to happy, healthy and functioning ankles, feet and toes. Bruised heels, collapsed arches and toe problems, all caused by improper gait and footwear, become a thing of the past when you visit Match Skin Salon. Osteoarthritis, deep vein thrombosis and fibrosis as a result of leg injury may also be addressed. We have expert massage therapists who are adept at foot massage and reflexology.
Stress weakens your immune system, and foot massage therapy will combat this by stimulating blood vessels and improving circulation. It eases anxiety and tension by triggering the release of built-up stress through your feet.
Pregnancy Massage (4 months+)
For thousands of years, ancient cultures have used prenatal massages to support mothers in their spiritual and physical journey to childbearing, and modern research has shown that prenatal massage therapy is a crucial element of a woman’s prenatal care. Whilst many massage training institutes teach this type of therapy, it is important that you choose only a certified prenatal massage therapist in Brighton.
At Match Skin Salon Brighton, we only perform pregnancy massage on women four months plus into their pregnancy, free of any medical problems and after having received consent from their doctor. Treatment by one of our licensed prenatal massage therapist will be relaxing, gentle and without firm pressure.
We use a combination of Swedish and Thai oils to help promote wellness, reduce stress and relieve body aches. As your pregnancy progresses, treatment will be adjusted. Our treatment is also unique to every woman as we believe there is no one-size fit for every pregnancy. Your massage therapist will perform the massage as you lie on your side and will support your knees, head and baby.
Research in the last decade reveals that hormonal levels associated with stress and relaxation are altered when you receive a prenatal massage. This leads to improved cardiovascular health and better mood regulation. Most of our Brighton customers come to us when the discomfort of pregnancy becomes unbearable. The real benefits, however, lie in regular sessions throughout your pregnancy.
Prenatal massage therapy in Brighton provides you with a nurturing touch for emotional support, it soothes your nervous system, relieves discomfort in your varicose veins, lowers back and constipation heartburn. It also eases labour pain and enhances the pliability of underlying tissues on your skin.
