Your massage will be tailored to your preferences, including; a classic back, neck and shoulder massage, or an indulgent full-body massage to really soothe all of those aches and pains.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is an oil-free massage that focusses on acupressure points on your scalp, neck and shoulders.
Your therapist will work in gentle circles around these carefully targeted points to reduce head aches and even improve the condition of your hair and scalp.

We offer 45 minute express Indian Mead Massages and 1 hour indulgent Indian Head Massages at our salon in Barnes so you can get the treatment that suits your body and mind.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage

We combine the power of essential oils with the healing hands of massage therapy for a sumptuous and indulgent experience.

Your therapist will listen to your concerns to choose the essential oil that will have the best impact on your emotional well-being. Our oils are shown to have a therapeutic effect when they penetrate the skin and we’ll also infuse the essences to create a lovely calming ambiance in the treatment room.

When you book your aromatherapy massage at Making Waves you can expect some fabulous benefits, including detoxification of the body, mild pain relief and a boost in your mood.

Hot Stone Massages

If you want to sleep better, you should absolutely book yourself in for a Hot Stone Massage at Making Waves.

Your therapist places heated basalt river rock onto key points on your body to release tension. They’ll also use heated rocks, rather than their hands, to apply deeper pressure without any discomfort.
Our standard Hot Stone Massage is 1 hour long, but for an indulgent treat that really enhances the chemical, physical and spiritual healing within your body, mind and soul we recommend for our 1 hour 30 minute hot stone massage in Barnes.

How often should I have a massage?

Massages are lovely as an indulgent treat, but the best results work when you make a regular massage a part of your life routine.

Consider an intensive course of massages every other week to restore your healthy balance before moving to a less frequent routine.

What is the best massage treatment for me?

The best massage for you is the one that makes you feel amazing! In your consultation let your therapist know what’s brought you into the salon and if there is a part of your body (or mind) that’s troubling you right now.

You should also help them understand what massage pressure works for you. If you’re not sure what the ask them to show you the difference – this is your ‘me’ time and we want it to be the best it can be.

How much will my massage cost?

Our massages in Barnes are all competitively priced. We offer shorter express massages and long and luxurious massages to ensure we can really cater for every budget and busy diary!
