Aromatherapy is a complimentary therapy designed to treat the whole body. It helps the body to balance, regulate heal and maintain itself. The physical, spiritual and emotional well being of a person can be maintained by the inhalation and massage of essential oils. Aromatherapy treats the whole body, not just the sympton or illness. This combined with Reiki and the use of crystals ensures your body is healing holistically. Aromatherapy is recognised as one of the most natural and holistic treatments available today.
Pure essential oils are obtained from the roots, bark, stalks, flowers, leaves and resins of trees and plants. Aromatherapy has its roots in the most ancient healing practices of mankind. Aromatherapy does not aim to treat disease. Its aim to release feelings of well being, harmony and improved mental, physical and emotional health.
When you come for an Aromatherapy massage, you will receive a full consultation and you will be given a group of carefully selected oils that will help with your symptoms and illness. As essential oils are absorbed into the blood stream through application on the skin or through inhalation, their active components trigger certain pharmalogical effects. (pain relief).
During each massage I work along the meridian lines in the body ensuring any blockages are cleared so energy can flow freely from one organ to another to maintain and promote good health.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage balances the body, relieves pressure and soothes away tension, so we can breathe, stand and move more freely. An Indian head massage is a soothing and relaxing treatment, allowing you to escape the stresses and strains of daily living.
We all have a tendency to “live in our heads” building up excess energy and tension there. Blockages in the chakras can easily occur, resulting in lines, blemishes, headaches, migraine and eyestrain.
Indian head massage is based on traditional techniques using a variety of massage movements. Blood and lymphatic circulation is improved, tension relieved and joint mobility can be improved.
A complete treatment involves the face, scalp, shoulders and upper back areas. The condition of the scalp can be improved especially when oils are used as a medium.
A full treatment takes about 30 minutes and Reiki is incorporated into the chakras. It is a versatile treatment as it can be carried out almost anywhere. All that is required is a chair and no clothing needs to be removed. However, some clients prefer to lie down on the couch so they are more relaxed and this is discussed with each client individually. When a treatment is finished you will feel balanced, relaxed, energised and ready to cope with the stresses and strains of daily life.
Sports massage delivers preventative treatment and deals with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture. I only work on non-pathological tissue (non injured) so if you have a sports injury please seek further advice for this.
A consultation always takes place before a massage to ensure your suitability to receive the massage. I include the use of Reiki with the massage as this helps to relax the client and reduce stress and anxiety.
