About Ruth: Ruth set up Restoration Therapies in Cardiff 2012, after doing a BSc in Complementary Therapies. Anatomy and Physiology has always been a fascinating topic to her, as well as seeing the need in a busy society for people to take a moment to stop and unwind.

Over the years Ruth has built up her private practise, run retreats and done corporate massage and meditation workshops. Throughout this time Ruth has done further study in Thai Yoga massage, Hands free massage techniques, Meditation and Sports and Remedial massage. Continued training and expanding skills has been a key to creating well rounded treatments.

Restoration Therapies provides holistic based treatments aiming to restore people to full natural well being; approaching each treatment as individual and tailoring the techniques used to release tension in the muscles and bring about a balance to the body.

When you arrive for your treatment you will both do an initial consultation with the therapists. This will take place in the same space so be sure you are comfortable doing the consultation with your friend or loved one present. After the consultation, the therapists will leave the bell tent and you will both get comfortable on your own tables. You will be given 5 minutes after the treatment to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the atmosphere and the company of your friend or loved one. We are able to offer what ever treatment you prefer here is the list you can select from: Pregnancy Massage, Sports / Remedial Massage, Holistic Massage, Thai Yoga Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Indian Head Massage or Reflexology.

TREATMENTS ON OFFER:

Couples Massage - with Danielle Adams and Ruth Hughes

Aromatherapy Massage - Aromatherapy Massage is a natural treatment which uses the essential oils that have been extracted from different parts of plants. A unique blend on oils is made after a short consultation; warming massage blends can be created to help ease tension and stiffness in the muscles while helping to increase circulation to the area. Inhalation typically promotes psychological well being and calm; it can also have a positive effect on the respiratory system and help ease congestion.

Thai Yoga Massage - Thai Yoga Massage treatment is that relaxes the body and mobilises the joints. It is based on a series of applied yoga stretches and acupressure massage, it is the perfect treatment for office workers and sporty people alike helping to reduce stiffness and get movement back into the muscles and joints.

Reflexology - Reflexology is a treatment which is conducted predominantly on the feet, stimulating different reflex points on the feet which relate to areas or parts on the body. By using a range of techniques and putting pressure on different reflexes, balancing effects can be felt throughout the body. You will be surprised by how a treatment on the feet can relax the whole body. In the 1930's, Eunice Ingham developed what is known as reflexology; her opinion was that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Contrary to popular belief, Thai Massage is not only for the extremely fit and flexible as stretches can be adapted to suit all body types.

Indian Head Massage - Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient system of medicine known as Ayurveda. This has been in practice in India for thousands of years. The Ayurveda view of health is physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and is maintained by the balance of the 3 life giving forces or doshas: vata, pita, and kapha. This treatment is traditionally done at the barbers or in a family setting amongst family members in India with focus on only the head.I do a ” westernised” version of this treatment focusing not only on just the head, but the shoulder girdle, hands, arms, and neck. Indian head massage has many benefits such as promotion of rest and relaxation, reduction of stress, elevation of mood, prevention of headaches, promotion of healthy hair growth, and furtherance of clearer thinking. I use a variety of techniques such as effluarage, petrissage, percussion, compression/ friction or vibration.I do a ” westernised” version of this treatment focusing not only on just the head, but the shoulder girdle, hands, arms, and neck.

Pre and Postnatal Massage - This treatment is catered towards women who are currently pregnant or have recently had a baby. Many changes occur during this magical time, and the every day demands of our modern society can leave pregnant women in poor physical and mental condition. Massage therapy for women both ante and post natal, has been done in many cultures for thousands of years. Massage can be easily adapted to fit the comforts of an expecting mother. This treatment is usually done with the woman laying on her side and prompted up by supports. It can also be done in a chair. Post natal massage is carried out pretty much the same as a regular treatment depending on each individuals needs. I use a variety of techniques such as effleuarage, petrissage, friction, vibration, and holds. Benefits of prenatal massage provide some relief in lower back pain, help strengthen the immune system, promote digestion, increases circulation, helps with odema if present and provides overall relaxation. In the early stages of pregnancy massage can provide relief from nausea and can be very supportive to the mother during these first few months of change can play a significant role in having a healthy relaxing pregnancy and a calm, content new baby as a result.

Holistic Massage / Swedish Massage - Holistic massage is a treatment tailered to your own needs and no treatment is ever the same. This treatment is suitable if you want a massage for a specific reason or if you just want some “me” time. The aim of the treatment is to treat the client as a “whole”. Whether your needs are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual you will receive a treatment suitable for your needs specifically. Massage can help improve flexibility and range of motion, prevent headaches, improve muscle tone, aid in recovery in post-operative rehabilitation, lower blood pressure and most important induce general relaxation that will help the production of serotonin and dopamine. After a massage the production of a stress causing hormone cortisol will decrease. If cortisol over time is constantly released in your body will weaken the immune system and you will be more susceptible to illness, depression and anxiety. We treat the body as a whole using a variety of techniques such as:

Efflurage, pettrisage, simple lymph drainage, trigger point therapy, and fascia release. We will also add advance techniques when suitable such as:

(MET) muscle energy technique, neuromuscular technique(NMT), positional release, soft tissue release (STR). We work together to come up with a plan suitable for your needs; whether it be for needing help through injury recovery, times of change, to reduce stress and provide relaxation.

Sports / Remedial / Deep Tissue Massage: Sports and remedial massage is a specialised, dynamic, customised massage that targets problem areas in soft tissues. (muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons). This treatment will aim to improve the clients tissue, neuological and psychological functions overall or within the specific mechanisms that are presented.

Sports and remedial massage can have a reputation of being painful and clinical. Depending on your needs we do try to apply this treatment in a holistic way. We focus on the physical mechanism that needs work, yet we try to address the contributing factors that may cause the issue and address it with suggestions on how you can improve posture or exersises that can help improve strength and proprioception. This treatment is also beneficial if you have recently had an injury and are looking to improve strength and tissue quality. By having sports and remedial massage in the regeneration stage of repair after an injury (depending on what the injury it is of course) will help assist in fuctional scar tissue formation and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to create a shift in a more relaxed state where healing can occur.

We combined traditional massage stroked such as efflurage, pettrisage, simple lymph drainage, trigger point therapy, and fascia release.

We will also add advance techiniques when suitable such as: (MET) muscle energy technique, neuromuscular technique(NMT), positional release, soft tissue release (STR).

Sports and remedial massage can be ” deep tissue” but gentle techniques can also be very effective. Don’t have this type of massage put you off if you fear it may be painful. This style of massage can still be very effective if it is gentle.

We tailer the treatment to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for something gentle and restorative to deep and vigorous.


NB: Each half hour massage session includes your changing time. If you would prefer a longer session then please feel free to book two (or more) consecutive half hour slots for a longer massage session.
