HOLISTIC THERAPIES

Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet hand and ears that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body.

When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.


Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage usually begins with working on the the upper back and shoulders. A combination of deep massage techniques and using pressure pressure on release points helps to relax and loosen the muscles. Moving upwards, from the back into the shoulders and upper arms helps release tension in muscles (such as Trapezius and Levator Scapulae) to release stress and tension.  This helps to alleviate headaches.  It also improves the circulation of the cerebral spinal fluid. Continuing with the upward movement, the scalp is then massaged using techniques that stimulate, relax and revive the entire head and scalp.


Pregnancy Massage

Specifically designed for pregnancy, to ease tension and aid relaxation.
Using specific techniques and ensuring your comfort, this treatment can soothe and relieve the aches and pains of pregnancy.


Bowen

Bowen is a gentle yet powerful treatment used to effectively treat conditions often not helped by more ‘conventional’ medicine.
The work is very subtle, using fingers and thumbs to work over soft tissue and fascia by applying very little pressure.
The rolling type move creates a gentle disturbance of the underlying fascia , which in turn prompts a central nervous system response.
