Other Therapies Offered

 

ShiatsuShiatsu – Head, neck and shoulder massage

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork in which the therapist uses finger pressure techniques to work the meridians (energy pathways) in order to unblock any congestions. Congestions arise from poor diet, lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle, stress, too much worry. This enables the body’s energy or qi (chee) to flow freely allowing the body to function optimally. It is based on Traditional Chinese medicine, which believes that all illness is a result of an imbalance in the flow of energy in the body. By stimulating acupressure points and at the same time the meridians, the body can be brought back into balance allowing healing to occur.

What can I expect?

Head, neck and shoulder Shiatsu is done sitting in a chair and takes 30 minutes. The shoulders, arms, neck and head are worked to help release stress and tension in those areas. Acupressure points in those areas are stimulated and may be a little tender depending on the amount of tension you have. As everyone’s pain threshold is different just let me know if it feels too tender and I will adjust the pressure to suit you.

Reiki Energy Healing

Reiki is the ancient healing art of “laying on of hands” and is based on ancient Tibetan healing methodologies. ‘Rei’ refers to the universal spirit and ‘ki’ is Japanese for life force energy. Reiki allows us to tap into the infinite and limitless life energy in order to heal. Everything that is alive contains energy and there is energy all around us in the universe. A Reiki practitioner has received attunements which unlocks and switches on the natural healing ability present in all of us. It is a wonderfully simple healing therapy in that all that has to be done is for the Reiki practitioner to place their hands on their client and universal healing energy will naturally flow to wherever it is needed. It is a safe, natural and holistic way to treat many health conditions. Reiki doesn’t only focus on the physical body but also affects mental, emotional and spiritual healing. It is suitable for everyone from babies to the elderly, pregnant women, people recovering from surgery and the terminally ill. It is also fantastic to maintain good health and for an overall sense of wellbeing.
 

What can I expect?

At your first treatment, I will take a medical/lifestyle history in order to get a picture of what is going on in your life and body. For the treatment you will lie down on your back on a therapy bed fully clothed while I channel energy into you. Half way through if you are able to I will ask you to turn over so I can do the back. At the end of the treatment, which lasts about an hour, I allow some time to discuss any sensations you may have experienced and what I may have felt and picked up. It is extremely relaxing and some people tend to fall asleep.
