The ancient art of Reflexology
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms of disease. It is based on the principle that the body is divided into ten equal and vertical zones ending in the fingers and toes. The body is often in a state of imbalance, particularly after illness, injury or periods of stress, with these vital energy pathways blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
The aim of reflexology is to release any blockages and restore the free flow of energy and blood circulation to the whole body. To achieve this a specific massage technique is applied to reflex areas in the feet (and sometimes the hands) which correspond to tissues, organs and systems throughout the entire body. Stimulating these reflexes encourages the body to heal itself, restoring and maintaining natural equilibrium, as well as promoting relaxation and a general sense of well being.
Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic essential oils extracted from plants to enhance the physiological and psychological well-being of an individual. Essential oils can have an effect on the body and mind through inhalation and absorption through the skin influencing mood and emotion. “Your therapist will select and blend essential oils appropriate to your individual needs and will in most cases apply them through massage” (Federation of Professional Aromatherapists).
Essential oils are beneficial due to their therapeutic properties including calmative, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, ant-viral, anti-rheumatic & analgesic. Aromatherapy may be beneficial for treating conditions such as headaches and migraines, digestive conditions such as IBS, skin conditions e.g. eczema, sinus problems, insomnia, arthritis, depression, anxiety and aid relaxation.
Indian Head massage involves massage to the face and scalp, neck and shoulders and arms. Its roots are based on Aruvedic medicine practised in India. The treatment can be given with or without oils and usually lasts about 1/2 hour. During a treatment the therapist will use a combination of kneading movements and strokes to release muscle tension and aid relaxation. Other benefits may include relieving headaches and migraines, sinus problems and insomnia and some clients comment on feeling more energised after a treatment.
