Massage and Aromatherapy
Touch is an important component of good health for everyone - regardless of age. These days massage isn't just for feeling good - it's a holistic therapy that reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion and increases endorphins - the body's natural pain killers. Massage has beneficial effects on both body and mind.
Aromatherapy - is the use of natural plant oils for their healing, cleansing and mood-enhancing properties. The art of aromatherapy affects the most powerful of senses - smell and touch (massage) to restore harmony to mind and body.
Massage and aromatherapy can help:
Reflexology is a traditional healing method. It is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all parts of the body. The purpose of a reflexology treatment is to release congestion, promote the flow of energy and promote well-being. Reflexology is carried out using gentle pressure using the thumb and fingers to specific points on the feet or hands.
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment for the whole person, it reduces stress by generating deep, tranquil relaxation and in doing so it provides many benefits:
Reiki is a Japanese word which simply means Universal Life Energy. The Japanese call this energy Ki. It is also known as Chi by the Chinese, and Prana by some Asian cultures. Many successful disciplines such as Reiki, Tai Chi, Yoga and Acupuncture have been developed to control and greatly enhance the flow of this energy.
This universal life force flows and radiates through every cell in the living body, however this life force can be depleted, blocked or weakened by modern day lifestyles, resulting in tension, insomnia, migraine, negativity, depression and many other conditions. When this energy or life force is allowed to flow unencumbered it fills the body with a profound sense of well-being - healing, repairing and rejuvenating as it goes.
Reiki is a simple technique for transferring this healing energy. It is a completely safe, natural and holistic treatment which works on many levels - psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual. Since Reiki works on each person's own energy levels it can bring about profound changes in people's lives.
Reiki is carried out by the practitioner placing his/her hands over the fully clothed body - touch is not necessary in a Reiki treatment. Treatment may last up to 1 hour. Reiki works well with other therapies and has been seen to enhance the efficacy of other treatments. If you'd like to find out more please visit my Reiki Teaching & Attunements page.
