Massage is used to re-balance the body when it is not functioning correctly. Massage is extremely relaxing, working primarily on the muscles and soft tissue to ease pain and tension. The therapist will use a number of techniques including effleurage, petrissage, vibration and percussion movements. These movements can be applied using various massage mediums but oils are generally favoured. There are many psychological as well as physiological benefits to receiving massage. It is stimulating, soothing and calming. We incorporate a variety of massage techniques including trigger point therapy, hot stones and lymphatic massage.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that works on the feet or hands enabling the body to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of “imbalance”, and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium and encourage healing. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points the Reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, circulation is improved and the body becomes deeply relaxed.
Reiki is a healing therapy that works on the body’s energy layers, particularly on an emotional level. Health concerns are not always attributed to a physical problem, they are generally caused by emotional disturbances. For example, when we are carrying burden or feel unsupported in our life, this manifests as back pain. We hunch over and tense, shortening the abdominal muscles, our core area, and stretching the back muscles. Reiki releases a warm and comforting energy that dispels negativity and brings each energy centre into balance and harmony.
