AROMATHERAPY

£30 for 30 minutes

                           £40 for 60 minutes

                                                      £65 for 90 minutes

 

Aromatherapy is a gentle massage which involves the use of essential oils. The oils are selected based upon the client’s needs and preferences of smell. This treatment can be used for a variety of physical and emotional problems including stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, pain, insomnia, coughs and colds, burns, scar tissue, digestive problems and skin disorders.

 

Clients report that the process of having a gentle massage with aromatherapy oils is a wonderfully relaxing and soothing experience. Depending on an individual’s needs, essential oils can be used to soothe, uplift, energise, relax or stimulate. Aromatherapy is the systematic use of volatile plant oils known as essential oils for the treatment or prevention of disease. It is a form of complementary therapy designed to treat the whole person and not just the symptom or disease by assisting the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.

 

Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin during massage, and whilst breathing they enter the lungs. These therapeutic constituents then enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers.

HOPI EAR CANDLING

                                         £30 for 30 minutes, includes the candles

 

Quite different from conventional wax candles, a Hopi ear candle is actually a cotton tube, dipped in beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils, that is lit and painlessly inserted into the ear to draw out impurities, relieve pressure in the head and sinuses, and aid hearing problems. Although a client may only have an issue with one ear, each treatment is carried out on both ears and a mini facial massage carried out to complete the treatment and help remove any blockages around the sinuses. Once the treatment has been completed, if you wish, the remaining part of the candle can be open to reveal any impurities which have been drawn from the ear.


 

 

Users of Hopi ear candles have reported success in treating balance and inner ear problems, build-up of wax, ringing in the ears, tinnitus, hearing difficulties and sinus problems as well as colds, ‘flu, sore throats, stress, headaches and migraines. The treatment is suitable for children and is a good alternative for people who have found syringing uncomfortable. The client remains fully clothed throughout this treatment.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

£30 for 45 minutes

 

Indian Head Massage is a massage of the shoulders, neck, scalp and face. Designed to relief stress and tension, this treatment is beneficial for those who suffer from headaches, migraines and those who suffer from high levels of stress. The treatment can be performed with or without the use of oils. We use traditional Indian hair oils which helps improve the condition of the hair and promote hair growth. The oil I use will depend on the colour and condition of each clients' hair.

 

 

The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. The client sits in a chair for the first part of the treatment. The treatment uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, we gently stimulate and stroke specific pressure points on the face, with the client lying on the couch. This treatment can also be carried out above the clients clothing and without using oils.

 


 

Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing; leaving them feeling energised, revitalised and better able to concentrate. The traditional Indian Oils will improve the condition of the hair and scalp as well as encouraging new hair growth.

REIKI

                                                                        £20 for 30 minutes

                                             £40 for 60 minutes

 

Reiki is a simple process. The recipient simply lies on the couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be done in a seated position, the main thing is that the recipient is as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts.

 

The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. Reiki heals by charging negatively affected parts of the energy field with positive energy. Energy fields in the body each have different vibratory levels and Reiki practitioners use their hands to affect and hopefully rebalance these vibrations in the negatively affected part of the body. The treatment is carried out with the client fully clothed at all times.

 


Reiki can be used to relieve the symptoms of chronic illnesses such as anxiety, insomnia, back pain and arthritis, and it often produces long-term beneficial changes. Aside from treating physical, mental and emotional problems, most clients report that a Reiki treatment feels wonderful, and promotes a sense of relaxation and well-being.

 

Reiki is based on the premise that illness is caused by a disruption in the body’s energy field or life force. By using specially designed symbols and channelling energy, it is believed that the body can be filled with positive energy causing the disease-making negative energy to disappear, therefore re-balancing the body.

STONE THERAPY

(HOT & COLD)

£30 for 30 minutes

                           £40 for 60 minutes

                                                      £65 for 90 minutes

 

Stone Therapy is the technique of applying either hot or cold stones to the body. Stones of various shapes and sizes are used to carry out the massage, giving various effects and pressure.

 

HOT STONE THERAPY

Basalt stones are heated with water and then incorporated into a deep tissue massage. At the end of the treatment the stones are re-heated and strategically placed on the body. The client is then left for 5-10 minutes before a final massage is carried out to remove all the stones.


 

Hot Stone therapy can help in the treatment with muscular aches, pains, and strains, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, back pain, and insomnia. It also helps to improve circulation and can help reduce stress, anxiety, tension and depression.

 

COLD STONE THERAPY

In certain cases cold stones can also be used to help muscular injury and inflammation. Marble stones are cooled using water and then applied to the body or used during massage techniques. The application of cold stones stimulates the nervous system by causing the blood vessels to contract and increasing the lymph flow of waste materials round the body.
