The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-10-14T05:15:43Z Ripple Expands Its Mobile Massage Spa Services 2018-10-14T05:15:43Z ripple-expands-its-mobile-massage-spa-services Ripple Massage (https://www.ripplemassage.com.au/about-us/mobile-massage/) , Australia’s leading mobile massage company, has added to its spa menu, including mocha body scrubs, handmade green clay facials and peppermint foot soaks to its packages. “Ripple is much more than a mobile massage service,” said Ali Saoirse, owner of Ripple Massage. “We feel our clients still want all the pampering extras when they book a massage with us that can turn a good massage into an amazing one.” “Our goal is always for our clients to be happy, and one way we have found to do that is to include facials, aromatherapy oils, reflexology and body scrubs complimentary as part of our in-home massage service.” “The most popular package is the one hour pamper package that includes a full body aromatherapy massage, foot reflexology, foot soak and mini green clay facial, all for $120. It’s proven to be our most booked treatment, especially for hens’ parties, girls weekends and pamper parties.” Ali Saoirse started Ripple 14 years ago as a single mobile massage therapist, and the business has grown to cover 20 regions in Australia. It’s spa menu not only offers the common relaxation and deep tissue massages, but has also branched out into beauty services, hot stone massage and pregnancy massage. Ali has also developed spa packages exclusive to Ripple in Australia, such as the chocolate massage, honey massage and coffee massage packages. “My goal when starting Ripple was to be so much more than just mobile massage. As much as I love day spas, sometimes as a time poor Mum, having the therapist come to me was the only option.” “It has allowed me to live my dream of a work life balance as well as a wish to make other people happy. The perfect combo. Ripple is still a small business. Many days you will find me answering the phones. “As a trained massage therapist, being so closely in contact with our clients means that any questions they may have about their massage can be answered by a trained professional, not just a call center.” For more information on Ripple Massage and Beauty or to make a booking please phone 0438 567 906 or visit www.ripplemassage.com.au Ripple provides a unique mobile day spa service to women, men and couples throughout the Gold Coast, Mt Tamborine, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Ballina, Lismore, Byron Bay, Hunter Valley, Gosford, Melbourne, Yarra Valley, Great Ocean Road, Mornington Peninsula, Central Coast NSW, Adelaide and Perth.  For Ripple : Ali Saoirse    ali@ripplemassage.com.au        www.ripplemassage.com.au Twitter : www.twitter.com/rippleali      Facebook : www.facebook.com/ripplemobilemassage/   Ripple Massage Wins at Scenic Rim Business Awards 2014-12-01T00:46:35Z ripple-massage-wins-at-scenic-rim-business-awards Last night Ripple Massage and Beauty won the Business Marketing Award at the Scenic Rim Business awards. We were the sole winner from the mountain. It is the second year in a row we have won an award there. More information on Ripple is at http://www.ripplemassage.com.au This award is not only due to the amazing people who work within Ripple, but also the strong core of support we have received from many others, particularly from the mountain. Ripple is this lovely weird little business, it attracts the nicest people to it who have gone out of their way to see it grow. Starting from one therapist on the mountain (me) to now having over 40 people over 19 regions across Australia, the success of the business comes down to the enormous generosity and kindness of many people. This is an incomplete list, I apologise in advance to those I have missed, but an enormous thank you to .. All of our alliances in the Scenic Rim and particularly the mountain, who have supported us with business, clients, advice and cross promotion. Witches Falls Cottages, Seaview Farm Retreat, Wallaby Ridge Retreat and so many others (sorry can’t name you all! But you know who you are). All of our therapists who work extraordinarily hard to make our clients happy and a big thank you to Julie for her early support. Our clients (over 20, 000 treatments over ten years) who we aim to make happy. The girls in the office, Julianne, Jess, Jessie, Yuen and Letitia who are the heart of the business. Thank you to the wineries, particularly Shane O’Reilly, Bryce and Paddy Kassulke and John Penglis for their initial support in business in this region. TMCCI and Scenic Rim Council – particularly Chris Kite and a big thank you to John Brent, and also my business mentor, Martin Mankowski, for his advice and big thinking. And finally, thanks to my two boys, Jack and Lucas, the core of my life and the reason for Ripple’s existence, and also for the love and support from Craig. I came to the mountain 18 years ago with a two-year-old ... didn’t have a cent, knew no one and no real idea what I was going to do. I just knew I wanted to live in this beautiful place. It is through the kindness, generosity and support of the mountain that my family now has this beautiful, sweet, intense, little life. Ripple is an extension of that life, and each day, I still get a buzz of excitement when I go to work. It doesn’t get any better than this. Mahalo for your support. Ali.

More information is at www.ripplemassage.com.au Ripple’s suspended massages borrow from the tradition of suspended coffee, which began in Naples about ten years ago. In essence, a “suspended coffee” – or caffe sospeso in Italian – is a cup of coffee that a customer buys anonymously for someone who can't afford to buy one themselves. The customer pays for the coffee in advance and the cafe “suspends” it, later making the coffee for someone who could needs it. Ripple is the first massage business in Australia to have extended this concept to the massage industry. The concept is simple. Any customer can simply add $5 to their massage booking (or simply donate $5) which will pay for a fifteen minute massage for a woman who has been subjected to domestic violence. Ripple Managing Director, Alison Shaw, believes that a big part of being a massage therapist is the concept of giving back to the community. The suspended massage is an extension of the “Ripple Effect” programme already run by Ripple. “At Ripple, we have a deep sense of gratitude for our good fortune to be able to do such beautiful work. The suspended massage is a way that the kindness, that has been shown to us, can be forwarded to women who are in desperate need for some positive touch,” said Ms Shaw. “The issue of domestic violence is one that is close to our hearts here at Ripple. In the past month, the opportunity to help three women who have been subjected to violence in the home has crossed our paths, and it has prompted us to expand out programme of giving massages to those in need on a wider scale,” she continued.  “Anyone can give a suspended massage. Simply call Ripple on 0438 567 906 to donate one, $5 will pay for a fifteen minute massage for a woman who has been subjected to domestic violence, or you can donate one online at www.ripplemassage.com.au . It’s that inexpensive and it’s that easy. It is a very simple concept that pays forward some of the kindness and good karma with which Ripple has been blessed.” Ripple provides a unique mobile day spa service to women, men and couples throughout the Gold Coast, Mt Tamborine, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, Hervey Bay, Melbourne, Yarra Valley, Great Ocean Road, Mornington Peninsula and Geelong regions.

Mango season is coming and to celebrate Ripple Massage is launching a mango massage, unique to Ripple in Australia (www.ripplemassage.com.au). “Mango is magic for the skin,” said Alison Shaw, owner of Ripple Massage. “When eaten, as well as being delicious, it is packed with antioxidant compounds that can help protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. It is also known for reducing pimples and acne. “The oil derived from the stone is rich in nutrients and moisturizing properties and has a beautiful buttery feel, which makes it perfect for massaging. Coming out of winter, our skin is often dry, so this will give it the much needed moisture for the warmer weather,” Alison continued. “At Ripple we use the oil derived from the stone of the fruit mixed in with our other base oils and a mango scent, to give our clients a unique summertime massage. We also incorporate the mango oil into our walnut shell exfoliation to polish and buff the skin.” “And to really top it off, all our clients who book the mango massage receive a gift box with the mango oil, mango lotion and we talked our candle maker Carol into making some mango candles for us too.”   Ripple’s Mango Massage package includes the many free day spa extras that Ripple has become known for including a peppermint foot soak, full body mango massage, mango exfoliation and organic green clay mask.

Alison Shaw, owner of Ripple Massage a national mobile massage service, believes it’s time the sex industry used a different euphemism for its advertising. “Massage is a legitimate profession, similar to other health care professions such as nurses and ambulance drivers,” said Ms Shaw. “Our massage therapists offer purely a health care service and work under a code of ethics similar to other health care professions. “All of our therapists are qualified to minimum nationally accredited standards with either a Certificate IV or Diploma of Remedial therapy in massage. “We also offer health fund rebates for many of our massages. “A recent report in the Gold Coast Bulletin indicating that many brothels operate under the term “massage” or “massage parlour” is indicative of a nationwide problem for legitimate massage therapists” “As a result, clients are often left confused between the two, making it difficult to seek out a legitimate health and wellbeing service,” commented Ms Shaw. Medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, lower blood pressure and a lower heart rate. The increase in serotonin brought about by massage can prevent fibrosis and scar tissue and can improve the functioning of the lymphatic system. It also stimulates the immune system, can prevent the formation of adhesions and it also helps remove uric and lactic acid.

Ripple Massage has just launched its chocolate massage, a unique style of massage to Ripple that combines the indulgence of chocolate and is good for the body at the same time. Ripple's owner, Alison Shaw, found the massage in Barcelona, and introduced it back here in Australia, developing the style to make it an experience unique to Ripple's guests. "I was browsing some shops near the Gaudi church, when down a little side alley I spied a small day spa, tucked away," said Alison. "Always keen to try new styles of massage when I travel, one of the perks of my job, I wandered in. My Spanish doesn't extend beyond hola and per favour, but I knew as soon as I saw the massage menu I had to have whatever included the word "chocolat". "The next two hours were as close to massage perfection as I could get. Lush chocolate warmed with oil and massaged across my body." "I had to bring it back to Ripple, so we have launched it into Australia with our own special touches, making it a unique, one of a kind experience that our guests won't get anywhere else. We also include a gift box with chocolates to eat during the massage, a handmade chocolate candle and luscious chocolate soap for afterwards. One word ... divine." The 2hr Chocolate package includes: • Full body aromatherapy massage with warmed chocolate • Foot reflexology massage • Peppermint and lime scented foot soak and foot scrub • Organic green clay and cucumber cleansing face mask, hot steamed towels, nourishing moisturiser • Gift box of chocolates to nibble on during your massage, handmade chocolate soap and handmade chocolate candle • Full body exfoliation to polish your skin with walnut, tangerine and lime scrub For more information on Ripple or to make a booking please phone 0438 567 906 or visit the website www.ripplemassage.com.au -Ends- We welcome journalists trying out the chocolate massage, please contact us for details.

Ripple has just launched including a free foot reflexology treatment in all its day spa packages. More information is at Foot massage“I discovered reflexology on a recent trip to Beijing,” said Alison Shaw, owner of Ripple Massage, “and have been wanting to introduce it into Ripple ever since.”"Just up near Tiannamen Square, I found the place I had been looking for. A small room, kind of resembling a doctor’s office. The receptionist at the hotel had assured me that this was where I would get the best reflexology treatment in Beijing.“So with a mix of English and a smattering of pathetic Chinese, the lady at the massage clinic took pity on me and said "Engligh okay. Either that or she didn't like her language being butchered by another foreigner.”“So that barrier aside I then had my feet soak in a mix of Chinese herbs (27 apparently, kind of like the Kernels secret herbs and spices but for the feet). And then the most sublime foot massage I've ever had. Within minutes, all the traipsing up and down the Great Wall and around the Forbidden Palace disappeared.”So good in fact that I went back the next day...oh and the next."Ripple has just launched including a free foot reflexology treatment in every spa package.

More information is at Pregnancy Massage “Being a mum is magic, but pregnancy can put a big strain on your body,” said Alison Shaw, owner of Ripple Massage. “Muscles can ache, feet can get swollen and sometimes pregnant mums just need a little pampering and care.” “Pregnancy massage is fantastic as it relieves muscle spasms and cramps that come with carrying the extra weight of a bub and other physical changes that occur during pregnancy.” “It also reduces the stress in the mother’s joints and other bone structures, and the health of both the mother and baby are enhanced by the increase of blood and lymph circulation, the reduction in edema and by increasing cellular respiration.” “As well as that it feels fantastic to have a therapist come to your home or accommodation and focus on you for a change. So many Mums spend their lives taking care of others, that to have some quiet time where they are spoilt is a welcome retreat from everyday life.” Ripple specialises in pregnancy massage, and its therapists are professionally trained to provide safe, relaxing treatments for all clients in their second or third trimesters.
