REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology

How you feel affects your whole body. Your posture changes depending on your mood, making you become more slouched when sad or depressed and upright when happy. The same with your feet too! Your soles and surrounding area are literally a map of the body. By applying pressure and stimulating relevant reflex areas you can relieve tension, improve blood flow and nerve supply, which can improve your body’s overall functioning and assist in its healing.

 

It really is not just a foot massage! This healing art, which is over 4000 years old, has numerous testimonies praising its worth.  Many people, who have participated in eastern medicine, know the body’s internal organs and nervous system are connected to various areas of the body, including the feet. It is widely used for healing, so much so, that it has also become a recognised treatment by the NHS.

 

You may wish to work on a specific symptom naturally, or treat the body overall to create relaxation, improve organ function and relieve pain. Either way, the benefits of reflexology are endless, from improving fertility to treating anxiety, nerve conditions, insomnia and much more.

 

It doesn’t end there, as I offer many different ways in which you can add extra benefits to this treatment.  Check out our add ons, which can be discussed in more detail during your consultation.

HOPI EAR CANDLES

Including massage to face, neck and ears

The origins of Hopi Ear Candles came from the Hopi Indian Tribe, who were renowned for their knowledge and therapeutic techniques.  There is also history of Egyptians, Mayans and Aztecs using this technique for spiritual cleansing and purifying.

 

This deeply soothing treatment involves a lit hollow candle being inserted into the ear, which causes heat and vibration to the inner ear.  The sounds and frequency is best described like a gentle inner massage, moving along the ear canal and bouncing off the eardrum.  This process loosens compacted earwax so that it will drain away naturally through the lymphatic system. 

It improves conditions involving the head, neck and throat such as: -

  • Migraines & Headaches

  • Stress

  • Sinusitis

  • Tinnitus

  • Vertigo

  • Snoring

  • Pressure

  • Colds

  • Earache

  • Hay Fever

  • Menieres Disease

A lymphatic massage to the face, head and neck is carried after to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.

reiki

REIKI

Reiki Treatment

Reiki is a laying of hands healing treatment, where the practitioner channels subtle “life force” energy through the body and out of the hands to the recipient.   This promotes overall wellbeing by balancing energy flowing through the 7 chakras which are connected to different organs and emotions of the body. 

Have you ever heard such phrases as “sick to the stomach”, “broken hearted” or “pain in the neck” the list goes on, and when you are stressed you can feel this in areas of your body, These words show the connections to organs and emotions.

It is believed that the technique is well over 2,500 years old, originally came from the Mu people, passed to Tibetan Buddhist monks and rediscovered by Mikao Usui who after many years of study, discovered a way of accessing and using this healing energy, and of passing this ability on to other people by way of attunement.

 

Vikki who is a qualified Reiki Master, has been practicing Reiki for 15 years is still amazed with the results both herself and her clients experience. “Reiki puts the body in a very relaxed meditative state and reconnects a person with their natural intelligence.  It’s like a special piece of information is taken from Reiki Practitioner to client”.

 

There are various different techniques you can use when giving Reiki; from scanning the body to being guided by spirit.  Spinal cleanses may be incorporated, helping the energy flow through the central nervous system.   Pendulums can be used, or in addition crystals to amplify the healing process. This can be done in several ways from gridding, to selecting specific crystals that you are drawn to.  Symbols can be included to add an energetic focus or a technique that involves balancing the chakras can be used.  It is even possible to do Reiki at a distance, as well as sending through your eyes, breath and more.

 

As a general rule a full treatment will be carried out on a treatment couch and start with hand placements from the front top of the body, working down to the bottom, and then ending on the back, spending time on each area for a few minutes. 

 

Reiki treatment include some of the following benefits; encourages deep relaxation, diminishes stress and anxiety, alleviate depression and stabilises blood pressure, strengthens and supports the immune system, releases toxins, soothes pain, relieves headaches including migraines, eases conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, improves lymph flow, promotes healing for all illness or injury, helps combat addictions, increase energy levels, promotes a more positive outlook, enhances clarity of thought, improves self-belief and inner confidence as well as encourages and supports personal growth and development.

HEALY

healy_edited_edited.jpg

Healy is a microcurrent device that assists the body by rebalancing its bio energetic systems. This is not the same manner as conventional medicine and so shouldn’t be looked at in the same way. In the UK it is classified as a medical device in the treatment of Fibromyalgia, Pain Management, Sleep Disorders, Anxiety and Depression. 

Frequency applications have been developed over decades of research by practitioners and scientists. The safety of this method has been proven by many studies and decades of experience, which have been confirmed by thousands of applications from their own practitioners.

Two scientists in particular laid the foundation for Healy in this field many years ago.  Professor Robert O Becker, an expert researcher in the field of electrotherapy who wrote “The Body Electric” in 1985, known as the “Bible” of modern electromedical technology.  His field of research was in regeneration of organs and organ systems.  Also Professor Bjorn Nordenstrom M.D. (1919-2006) in his book “Biologically Closed Electric Circuits” he describes a bioelectric circuit in the body, similar to blood or lymph circulation. 

Vikki started personally using the Healy in the summer of 2021, as part of her own healing, and as she felt the benefits, so decided to incorporate it into the business

It is a small lightweight machine, which can be attached to the body, and connects to you via leads, either connected to the wrists, ears or patches in specific areas of the body. There are 12 categories consisting of several frequencies. These include
