Reflexology & Body Massage
~ Based on the principle that areas of the body are connected to reflex points or zones in our feet, head and hands, the ancient Chinese practice of Reflexology aims to restore health and boost wellbeing by balancing bodily energy and promoting healing.
This is achieved through the manipulation of pressure points on the body via massage and micromovement techniques.
~Practised for over 3,000 years, Body Massage promotes relaxation and healing within the body.
It can come in many forms depending on what it aims to target, from foot massages to full-body massage, and it is a tried and tested method of self-pampering that comes with a variety of wellness benefits.
Through a series of techniques such as kneading, massage manipulates the body’s soft tissue, muscles and ligaments. This stimulation loosens stiff muscles and eases discomfort, improves circulation and encourages the body to produce endorphins that boost happiness.
Aromatherapy & Reiki
Aromatherapy heals and balances the body and mind through the use of essential oils.
These oils are extracted from plants via distillation, a process that captures the plant’s smell and flavour – its ‘essence’. Essential oils have unique scents (hence aromatherapy) and properties that can affect the brain and body in certain ways when inhaled or applied topically.
Reiki is a form of complementary therapy relating to energy healing. It works with the energy fields around the body and involves the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to the client.
