This is a general massage with the purpose of pure relaxation. This is not a deep tissue massage and involves the application of only light to medium pressure from the practitioner.
These techniques are targeted to specific areas of tension and stress, according to the client’s requirements, and involve the application of varying pressures from light to deep.
These deeper tissue techniques can help athletes prepare for sports events or aid in their recovery afterwards. They can encourage repair of damaged muscles and help in the prevention of injury.
The application of heated stones to a specific area of the body deeply penetrates the tissues, softens the muscles and releases tension, whilst the application of cooled stones can assist in reducing muscle inflammation and have a profound impact when addressing acute injuries.
Reflexology involves the application of pressure to specific zones on the hands and feet in order to promote therapeutic effects on other parts of the body.
Gentle pressure is applied over the whole of the feet, in a calming and rhythmic manner, helping to relieve tension and promote a sense wellbeing and relaxation within the body.
“a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement”
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
