Aromatherapy uses essential oils to improve physical and emotional well-being. This is not a new or modern technique; the effectiveness of natural plant oils has been recognised throughout history. Today, following a return to natural remedies, their value is being reappraised.
Reflexology is much more than a foot massage. It works by applying controlled pressure to points on the feet (or hands) to stimulate corresponding parts of the body. This stimulation promotes overall health by encouraging the body to balance itself, to be ‘at ease’ as opposed to ‘dis-eased’.
Thai Foot Massage has evolved from traditional techniques from India and China and has been influenced by Japanese and Korean foot masseuses. All parts of the lower legs, feet and hands are included and elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology and Yoga, along with stretching, is incorporated. It is said to stimulate the activity of internal organs.
Indian Head Massage is an ancient art. Its origins lie in the traditional Indian system of medicine known as Ayurveda. Although it was introduced comparatively recently to the Western world it has become one of the most popular holistic therapies. This versatile treatment can be performed seated, over clothes, but the use of oils makes the experience even more pleasurable and for total relaxation you may receive your treatment lying on the massage couch.
Thermal Stone Therapy is effective and penetrating on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Massage, Aromatherapy and Acupressure, combined with the heat from the stones, provide the ultimate in luxurious relaxation.
Reiki is the Japanese word for ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised, and worked with, this vital force that flows through all matter. The therapist merely acts as a channel to promote the body’s regenerative self-healing ability.
