Reflexology is an ancient technique working on the basis that areas in the feet directly mirror the body. During consultation you will receive a relaxing foot bath and cleanse, then whilst you relax on the couch you are the recipient of a wonderful foot and ankle massage of specific zones, targeting areas of congestion, promoting relaxation, improvements in sleeping, improved mood and stress relief. Reflexology is great if you are suffering from stress, emotional issues, aches, tiredness, menopause symptoms and so much more. It is a deeply relaxing therapy.
Do you sit all day at a desk? All day in a vehicle? Lift heavy items? Are suffering aches and pains, have to constantly lift children?
Have you had a nagging shoulder issue for a long while?
A back massage working the soft tissue of the lower and upper back and neck , to ease day-to-day stresses and relax tight muscular fibres, using a medium of organic cream, oil or wax tailored specifically for you, could be just what you need. We will use MFR , stretching and trigger points to release tension from muscles, heat will also be applied to aid in relaxation.
Shoulders, Neck & Arms
Deeper tissue work, trigger point to target knots, and areas of congestion, myofascial work to ease pain and stretch fibres, side lying techniques to shoulder pain. Head massage and some cranial sacral work takes place too.
I use little or no wax to ensure the best contact, although this massage will relax you by easing stiff aching muscles and realigning fibres often there are movements involved and you will be expected to lie on your back, side and front at times and move limbs should it be required.
Wonderfully relaxing gentle back massage using a fully organic medium and blended essential oils, tailored as always to your individual needs.
Muscles are manipulated, relaxed and soothed. This therapy helps defeat anxiety and stress, manage pain, soothe joints, helps with headaches, lifts your spirits, promotes health and well being and relaxes your poor muscles.
Its a wonderful way to take time out, breath in the scented oils and float away.
The massage incorporates, lower back, back, neck and shoulders and head
Legs & Feet
Suitable for runners and cyclists or those simply on their feet a lot.
The massage works all the muscles of the legs, glutes and feet. Incorporating deep tissue massage, trigger point, MFR, stretching, movement and manipulation. This is for the whole legs, back front and side as well as feet, you will be asked to aid with movement.
I may use heat to aid in relaxing the muscles, mediums used are wax, or oil.
Reiki is an ancient form of spiritual healing, energy is channelled through the practitioner to promote healing to the client, whilst you lie comfortably under warm, soft blankets.
Reiki energy is given to bring balance to your body, mind and spirit. It can help with redressing daily stress or bringing a deep sense of spirituality, it can aid you in easing and dealing with pain, it promotes restful sleep and gives the body peace. You will leave with a deep sense of relaxation and calmness which may last several days.
Reiki is a very gentle, non invasive therapy, suitable for everyone.
Shamanic Healing pathways take several forms, Recognition of Spiritual or Energy blocks, Ancestral Healing and Power Animal Retrieval, I work with the Spirits of the Place, my own power animals and guides, with the Spirit of my drum or rattle, I may use other tools such a crystal or smudge (cleansing smoke of herbs)
Drum Healing uses the regular rhythmic beating to resonate with your body, the sound of the drum will change with blockages, and the drum brings balance, it is the heart beat of the Earth, similarly with the rattle, this will be used to cleanse and balance energy in the auric field.
Journeying is guided, to heal or to find your power, by way of finding your power animal or to bring relief from stress and tension, held in the body, mind or spirit. This is a bit like meditation.
Shamanic healing is ancient and world wide, I have studied Shamanics with teachers who follow a various paths and with teachers from this land following ancient British techniques, my learning never stops. My drum is made in the style of the Saami people. It has great spiritual meaning for me . This is a very sacred therapy and very deep, not to be be taken lightly.
