Massage is an ancient form of healing that has been used for thousands of years to offer relief from pain and to restore good spirits. Massage is the use of hands and a combination of various movements to manipulate the soft tissues of the body, particularly the muscles.
The essential oils that aromatherapists use to treat conditions are complex substances containing many chemical components. The oils are extracted from flowers, leaves, roots, peel, resin or bark.
When you inhale essential oils, this stimulates your olfactory system - the part of the brain connected to smell. A signal is transferred to your brain's limbic system that controls emotions and stores and retrieves learned memories. This triggers chemicals to be released.
These are thought to have different effects, causing you to feel relaxed or stimulated. In addition, the gentle massage often used to apply the diluted oils to your skin is likely to have a relaxing effect.
The art of Reflexology dates back to ancient times when the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health.
It is a therapy that treats the feet in order to balance the whole body. It works on the principle that by massaging and applying pressure to parts of the feet which are known as reflex areas, other corresponding and connected areas of the body will feel the benefit.
Reflexologists use their thumbs and fingers to look for areas that may contain congestion or tension, by manipulating these points it may help the body clear itself of any blockages that may be causing illness or symptoms.
Crystal healing is a complementary therapy that uses the innate energy of crystals and gemstones to help restore balance into our stressful lives. Everything has an innate energy whether it is static or in motion. The crystalline make-up contains lively electromagnetic energies that exists all around us.
It is a holistic treatment, whereby you are nurturing the whole self and working on areas of imbalance. In doing so, I will focus on the overall physical body - not necessarily where the symptoms are located to create an inner harmony which will reflect on the outer and may help to re-instate health within the physical body.
What to Expect?
Each treatment will commence with an introduction as to what will occur and an overview of what the client can expect. The initial consultation establishes any medical history and the reasons for the treatment; the treatment can then be adapted to suit your needs.
During the initial consultation you will be asked to complete a brief medical questionnaire and this may take an additional 20 minutes at which no extra fee is payable. A course of treatments may be recommended depending on your body's requirements. Treatments can also be enjoyed as a single relaxation session.
