All therapies will however, offer a unique experience for you depending on your condition, any aches and pains, mental and emotional issues which are present etc. No two people are the same. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of concentrated plant essences. The natural chemical compositions of the essential oils have been shown through research to possess therapeutic benefit such as being stimulants, anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, anti-spasmodic, analgesic and relaxants.
Aromatherapy massage is the combination of therapeutic massage and application of a blend of essential oils. Oils are chosen to address the needs of the individual as a whole: mind, body and spirit. The depth and sequence of the massage is also tailored to their individual needs.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue work does exactly what it says, it works deeply into the muscles. This massage is similar to Swedish massage, but works deeper into muscles, connective tissue, fascia and tendons to ease tension, boost circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system.
It's great for releasing chronic muscular tension.
Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi ear candling is an ancient therapy, using a specially designed hollow candle (generally made from cotton, honey and beeswax and infused with anti-inflammatory oils such as chamomile, lavender and sage), and acts as a chimney, causing the warm air inside to rise, creating a vacuum, facilitating the gentle ease of tension and removing impurities.
Great for sufferers of ear, eye and sinus problems, as well as those who experience neuralgia and headaches and migraines.
Hot Stones Massage
This is a tailored treatment using oils, and gradually introducing heated basalt stones, to warm the body, and to massage with. The heat is very healing and also lets us get in nice and deep, in a gentle way.
Hot stones massage is great to boost circulation and release tension, and is a great choice for sufferers of chronic pain, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia and poor circulation.
Indian Head Massage
Despite the name, Indian Head Massage works not only on the head, but has been adapted in the west to work also on the neck, shoulders, arms and upper back. This makes it perfect for those who may be working at a desk/computer screen for a large part of the day.
The benefits of Indian Head Massage include relief of headaches, eye strain and migraine, relief of muscle tension and pain in head, neck, back, shoulders and arms and a feeling of calm and relaxation. It is traditionally done seated, but can be adapted to do on the massage couch in a lying position.
During pregnancy, it's not just the body that changes. This specially tailored massage, can be such a release and great way to ease out physical aches such as sore back, stiff shoulders, tender expanding hips, but it can also help to settle the mind and gently balance hormones too.
This treatment is recommended from the second trimester onward, and is adapted for your comfort by lying on side and propping you up with cushions and bolsters to help you feel supported and soothed.
Reflexology is a popular complementary therapy that focuses mainly on your feet. Reflexology helps your body heal itself, removes tension and brings balance to your body and mind. It’s gentle and non-invasive. You have thousands of nerve endings in your feet, providing a key into the workings of your body.
Manipulating reflex and energy points in your feet helps to eliminate imbalances, tension and congestion in all parts of your body. Reflexology is deeply relaxing, ideal during busy or stressful times in your life or simply when you want to feel pampered.
Reiki is the Japanese phrase for "universal life energy".
Reiki is a way of channelling energy through the hands of an attuned practitioner, which are placed on or above different parts of the client's fully clothed body. Reiki re-balances, heals & harmonises the recipient in a holistic way on a physical, mental, emotional & spiritual level and accelerates the body's own natural healing process. The healing energy flows to wherever it is needed in the body; promoting deep relaxation and a feeling of profound well being and greater inner calm.
Swedish massage is a treatment which relax the muscles and the mental state, and can both stimulate and balance all body systems, from the circulation to hormonal output. Swedish massage uses oils to reduce friction on the skin, and to assist with conditioning the skin and muscles. It is widely used to treat various muscular and joint aches.
