Foot reflexology works on the basis that every major organ, bone, glad and system is represented in miniature form on the feet. The treatment consists of following the body maps on the feet and applying pressure to very precise points and areas, using just the hands and a natural oil or cream. Areas of imbalance can be identified by the way these points and areas feel and by working to ease these, energy blockages which are often the root cause of discomfort and symptoms can be released to restore the free flow of energy to the body. As the flow of energy is restored, tension is eased, circulation and elimination are improved and a state of natural equilibrium, which is conducive to optimum health, is returned to the body.
Just as foot reflexology works on the basis that the whole body is mirrored in the feet, facial reflexology (Sorensen SystemTM) uses detailed charts that show the correspondences of specific points and zones on the face to different parts of the body.The precise stimulation of these points and zones sends impulses through the body’s central nervous system and meridians (energy channels) to the major organs and physical body, encouraging good blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and hormonal balance.
As an additional benefit, the treatment stimulates the facial nerves, muscles and tissues, releasing held tension, encouraging better skin and muscle tone, improving complexion and helping to reduce wrinkles.
Pregnancy reflexology is specifically designed to support women during the pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and post-natal period. It helps to maintain a good physical, mental and emotional condition during these transformative times.
Reiki is a Japanese healing method based on ancient Eastern wisdom and techniques. It works by activating the body’s own self-healing capacity to restore balance at all levels – physical, mental and emotional.Reiki healing is transmitted through the hands which are gently placed on or over parts of the recipient’s body that correspond to the major organs and energy centres. The body automatically draws in as much energy as needed, using it in whatever is most appropriate at the time.Unlike massage, there is no need to remove any clothing as energy passes through it.
Most people experience Reiki as a deeply relaxing, nourishing and calming treatment. It can be beneficial for any condition and is suitable for people of all ages.
