Reflexology

Reflexology is super treatment for deep relaxation and Foot Reflexology begins with a gentle pressure point head massage. Reflexology is an on off technique on the feet, hands or face to stimulate key reflex points and to help balance body systems and relieve physical and emotional congestion.

The history of Reflexology dates back to the late 1700’s where the concept of ‘reflex action’ was introduced with reference to the motor actions of the nerves. The English physiologist Sir Henry Head charted areas associated with the spine and did considerable research and established ‘head zones’ which are the modern day dermatomes that are used in clinical practise. His work proved the neurological relationship between the skin and internal organs.

Massage techniques were developed in Germany in early 1900’s, known as ‘reflex massage’. Dr William Fitzgerald 1872-1942) is credited with establishing zone therapy and discovered when pressure was applied to specific areas of the body which provided pain relief in other areas. In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham went on to develop the Reflexology treatment that is used today and her contribution led to the alternating pressure to stimulate healing,

The principle of Reflexology is based on zone therapy and reflex points mapped out on the feet, which correspond to different areas of the body. When a stimulus is applied to these points it is believed that it induces a feeling of wellbeing and can have a positive functional effect on body.

Foot Reflexology treatment concludes with a beautifully comforting foot and lower leg massage to relieve tension and put a spring in your step. Essential oils of immune boosting Tea Tree, zingy Peppermint and balancing Lavender applied to nourish weary feet.

Facial Reflexology

Facial Reflexology has been researched and developed over many years and techniques are inspired by Native American Indian healing methods using pressure point therapy to relieve pain. Facial Reflexology helps the whole body to function at its optimum and is based on the same Zone Therapy principle as Foot Reflexology.

This unique treatment is beautifully calming for mind and body. It is a quick acting treatment that nurtures the soul and helps to boost your body’s ability to heal through deep relaxation.

Facial Reflexology is currently used to treat common conditions and pain. A sequence of pressure points and lymph drainage techniques are applied to the face to stimulate the body’s natural healing capabilities, improve circulation and nerve function. Balancing reflex points in the face connect through zones to the rest of the body.

The face provides a precise tool to read what is going on within the body’s internal organs, central nervous system and neuro-biological systems. Facial Reflexology has a powerful impact on body systems due to the close proximity to the brain and cranial nerves. This Complementary Therapy is intensely relaxing and particularly beneficial for the relief of stress and anxiety. You will feel calm, energised and refreshed.

Ear Candling

A gentle, relaxing non-invasive treatment to the ears to help release congested ear wax. This is an ancient practice that has been used throughout many cultures for centuries; this evidence can be seen in pictorial records.

The Egyptians used reeds from the river Nile to not only cleanse the ear but as spiritual purification. The Hopi Native American Indian tribe in Arizona, renowned for their spiritual lifestyle used rolled waxed leaves infused with herbs as part of spiritual ceremonies.

Hollowed tubes made of cotton or linen, hardened with beeswax and fragranced with natural essential oils are gently inserted into the opening of the ear.

When lit, the candle creates a gentle massaging effect on the ear drum and a drawing action which helps to remove excess ear wax. This treatment includes a wonderfully soothing massage to face, head and neck to enhance relaxation. A full consultation will determine your suitability for this treatment.
