MASSAGES 

Care of the body and relaxation of the mind through massage is an ancient art, with its value proven over centuries for dispelling the cares and tensions of everyday life.
Massage Therapy in all its forms has a role to play in many chronic conditions, particularly those that nobody understands. Conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis have no cure; the medical profession and drugs can do no more.
By reducing muscle spasm and encouraging the body back into balance, other conditions may dissipate and disappear. Confidence returns, life improves and everyone around benefits.

The therapist is primarily concerned with general massage, where all areas of the body can be manipulated to different degrees, to bring about relaxation which eases physical and mental tension.
By altering the combination of movements a more stimulating effect can be created, which leaves the client feeling toned and invigorated, rather than relaxed and sleepy.
Physiological benefits include; nourishment of the skin and all its structures, stimulation and strengthening of muscle fibres, blood and lymph circulation improvement, elimination of waste, increases glandular activity, pain relief, aids relaxation. And any form of massage makes you feel good!

REFLEXOLOGY 

Reflexology helps the body to achieve balance using the reflex areas in the hands/feet, which correspond to organs and glands throughout the body. Reflexology helps to remove waste deposits that have built up on the reflex points. This in turn removes congestion from the energy pathways permitting an unobstructed flow of energy through the area.

Reflexology treatments will:

  • Calm and soothe
  • Relieve stress and tension
  • BAlance polarity
  • Give a feeling of well being
  • Relax mind and body
  • Balance hormone system
  • Reduce congestion
  • Help remove toxins from the system
  • Improve circulation
  • Promote unblocking of nerve impulses
  • Normalise organ and gland function.

Reflexology is especially good for back, neck and headache complaints and is a valuable aid for those suffering from anxiety, infertility and insomnia. It is also beneficial for digestive, respiratory, circulatory, immunity and menstrual problems.

Whether reflexology works on the nervous system, the circulatory system, the endocrine system, the lymphatic system, through an energy system or maybe even ways as that of acupuncture – it still remains a subject of debate as to how it works. Many theories have been put forward but as yet none have been proven. Whether working on a physical, mental or spiritual level, excellent results can be achieved. The treatment is non-invasive and gentle without resorting to drugs, which themselves can suppress the body’s natural healing efforts.

The technique is usually performed on the feet, hands or ears and allows the therapist to work on parts of the body without causing discomfort to the specific area. This effective form of therapy which has been used for hundreds of years promotes relaxation and rebalances the body’s energy levels. The foot is seen as a mirror of the body as a whole and Stimulating the feet by reflexology can boost the body’s own healing powers. This harmonises the body, relieves stress and is a relaxing treatment.
