Reflexology

Reflexology is a popular and relaxing treatment based on the principal that reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way the feet can be seen as a map of the body.

During a reflexology session the reflexes will be worked with thumbs and fingers using specialised massage techniques to help correct imbalances in the body and help release blocked energy.

Many people describe a profound sense of relaxation and increased energy following their session. In addition, specific studies indicate that reflexology may

The benefits:

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Rei translated in English means ‘the higher power or God’s wisdom’ and Ki stands for ‘life force energy’.

It is administered by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

The benefits:

  • Feel more relaxed and at peace
  • Cope with difficult situations
  • To relieve emotional stresses and strains
  • Remove the negative energy blockages that stand in your way of achieving the abundance, friends, love, health, peace, prosperity and spiritual growth that you deserve to achieve
  • To heal your past by releasing your burdens and the trapped negative energy associated with them, helping you become more balanced and emotionally stronger

Thai Yoga Massage

The ancient art of Thai Yoga Massage combines acupressure, assisted Yoga postures, meditation and energy healing. It is a deeply therapeutic and holistic treatment which aims to restore balance to the body and mind.

Typical benefits include:

  • Easing muscular aches and pains
  • Improving posture and flexibility
  • Promoting deep relaxation
  • Improving digestion and circulation
  • Relieving mental exhaustion and stress

What to expect at a treatment:

The massage takes place on a futon on the floor and the client is fully clothed throughout. I use smooth, flowing movements to press and stretch the whole body. I use my hands, feet, forearms, elbows and knees to release any energy blockages to bring a sense of well-being. Each massage is tailored to the needs of the client.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been practised for thousands of years and has it roots in the Ayurvedic tradition. It aims to promote healthy hair, provide immediate relief for tense muscles and induce a feeling of relaxation and well-being. It is thought that receiving Indian head massage can help to

  • Release muscle tension
  • Improve circulation to the skin, scalp and hair
  • Ease mental tension and tiredness
  • Aid better sleep and reduce insomnia
  • Improve concentration
  • Relieve tension headaches
  • Provide relief from mental and emotional stress

Traditionally in India these skills were handed down through the generations; with grandmothers massaging mothers and mothers massaging children. For men in India head massage can be included in a trip to the barbers.

What to expect at a treatment:

Before the treatment there will be a short consultation to find out exactly how I can tailor the treatment to your requirements. Typically, a massage starts with you in a seated position while I massage the soft tissues of the upper back, shoulders and arms before moving to the head and scalp.

You will then transfer to a lying position, for greater comfort and relaxation, while I continue to massage the neck and facial muscles. Although I would recommend the use of oils for Indian head massage I do offer a dry massage option, without the use of oils, if you prefer.  I have a range of scented Ayurvedic oils as well as unscented that you can choose from.
