Holistic Body Massage
 
  1hr £45
1.5hr £60
Nourishing body massage with warm, organic, cold pressed, base oils,  combined with pure essential oils. Freshly blended  with your requirements in mind. Reiki healing energy flows freely, helping to create a health enhancing, nurturing experience.

This treatment has huge potential for many levels of healing and is the most popular treatment.

I intuitively  share meditations and sound healing, using Tibetan bells and Singing bowls at the beginning, and or, end of the session. Crafted aromatherapy sprays uplift and engage the senses. An ambience is created and sustained that allows you to relax into a deep, often profound state. 

Perfect antidote to stress, anxiety, fear, burden, aches and pains.

Reiki
 
  1hr £40
1.5hr £55
Effective and profound. Ancient, gentle, Japanese energy healing technique.

In this treatment you wear your own loose comfortable clothing.

Reiki is known as the laying on of hands, and has sister treatments in many cultures. It is non-invasive and totally safe. Reiki energy flows to wherever it is most needed. This can be on any level were you may be experiencing discomfort, or be out of balance.
 
Reiki is a high intelligence energy and is drawn by you, the client not sent by the practitioner. This means healing can occur anywhere in the system. As a Reiki master I can facilitate your journey using ancient sacred symbols. These are steeped in layers of meaning and assist the efficacy of the treatment.

Common experiences range from totally mundane to completely mystical! Here are some examples of my clients experiences: Hot and cold sensations, giggling, weightlessness, vibrant colors, regression, emotional release, consistent yawning, visits from spirit, freedom from pain, forgiveness, insight and understanding, absolutely nothing! The list could go on!
 
With Reiki healing energy there are no guarantees.  Even those who do not perceive healing on any level are still receiving healing. Due to the often life changing effects of Reiki it is recommended (though not obligatory) that, initially, a course of three treatments are booked not more than a week apart. This ensures a smooth transition.

For this purpose I offer 10% discount when booking three sessions. The offer still stands if you wish to decide after your initial treatment.

Long distance reiki healing can also be arranged. This means we do not need to be in the same place together. Many people have experienced profound results with this. It is especially useful for any situation where the reciever of the energy is unable to travel.

Hopi Ear Candles   Approx.
45 mins £35

This treatment is sometimes referred to as Thermal-auricular therapy and is usually attributed to the Hopi Indians of America. Evidence shows us that ear candling has been used by ancient civilisations the world over.

A deeply relaxing treatment, that begins & ends with a short ear/ facial massage to open and stimulate flow of lymph through the sinuses. This aid's relaxation & release's congestion, or blockages.

Biosun ear candles are used. These are laboratory tested and have acheived the CE mark (93/42-EEC) for medical devices in Europe.

They burn at the far end, so create convection through the candle. This draws the softer wax's and toxins from the ear, some of which are oxisdised, or turned into vapour and burned off.

They are totally safe, the gentle warmth felt is comforting.

The amount of sessions needed depends upon the severity of your case.

They are not only used for the conditions listed below, but for antidoting stress. Many people report going to another space that is safe and healing.

Here are some of the conditions ear candles are used for:

  1. Excessive or compacted wax
  2. Irritation in ears and sinus's
  3. Pressure regulation in case's of: sinusitus, rhinitus, glue ear, colds, flu, headaches and migraine.
  4. Pain in ear's from frequent or long haul flights
  5. Swimmers ear
  6. Stimulation of local & reflex energy flow
  7. Energetic revitalisation in cases of hearing impairment
  8. Noises in the ears, ringing & tinnitus (giving periods of relief)

Ear candling has claimed the following benefits over the years:

  1. Relief from headache's / migraine's
  2. Reduce's suseptibility to ear infections
  3. Reduce's hearing problems
  4. Relief form chronic sinusitus / catarrh
  5. Reduces earache (will not ease a present earache)
  6. Good for pre and during cold & flu symptoms
  7. Can help with hayfever
  8. Can help with sleeping disorder's & snoring
  9. Can help with travel sickness
  10. Can help with balancing ear pressure before flying
  11. Meniere's disease

It is important to remember that Hopi ear candles do not claim to cure the cause of disease. However, in countless cases they have been proven to significantly reduce the discomfort associated with the above conditions.

Ear candles are not used with the following: Current ear infection, ear grommets or tubes, perforated ear drums, cochlear implants, high temperature, recent head or neck injury or recent ear surgery, cysts or tumours of the ear, alkalosis of the stapes, paracentesis, mastoiditis, allergies to ingredients ie;beeswax if allergic to bee stings, 1st trimester of pregnancy, dizziness due to low or high blood pressure (unless with GP's consent). If you have diabetes I can do the treatment and just leave out the massage, as this can speed up metabolism thus dangerously altering blood sugar levels.

Thai Massage
1hr £50
1.5hr £65
This is a very comforting, physically releasing treatment. Come dressed as if for yoga. In fact Thai massage is fondly regarded as 'Yoga for the lazy'!

The whole body undergoes passive stretching, pressing & kneading. It works wonderfully to soften & open the joints, relax & tone the muscles, nourish & soothe the nervous system, balance the endocrine system & calm the mind. 

During this treatment you'll reconnect with parts you'll have forgotten you have & fall in love with the feeling of being in your own body. This reconnecting with your physical self is very grounding.

I also work to open, what the Thai name, the Shen energy lines. This creates free energy flow that revitalizes the energy system. An all round fantastic treatment.

Call me to book: 0797 090 8850 (between 8am-8pm)
 
Pregnancy Massage 1hr £45
1.5hr £60

This treatment is done with mum lying on her side, fully supported by cushions wherever she needs. A deeply comfortable state where discomforts and tension can be eased away.

Without working directly on or over bump, the focus is directed to alleviating any issues mum is experiencing.  Happy mum, happy baby!

Organic, cold pressed, base oils nourish both mother & baby.

Pregnancy is a different experience for each woman. By supporting the many levels of change, & with emotional support, mum gets to release tension  in a safe, relaxing atmosphere.

Midwife’s verbal consent is advised before recieving any treatments.

Meditation 1hr £30
There are many methods of meditation. Some very active, some totally passive and everything in between.
I am trained through yoga and experienced with many forms.
Through direct consultation I can ascertain which style would suit you best.

The basic premise is that whatever technique you use, eventually you are able to observe the mind and body settle until they eventually drop into a balanced state of awareness in which no one aspect of the self dominates.

Once in this peaceful state, the bodies natural healing mechanisms are activated. Stress simply ceases. Emotions dissipate. The body gradually, sometimes quickly, heals. Energy levels increase. Coping mechanisms improve. Overall balance is easier to maintain. The list of benefits are manyfold.

With initial guidance from me, I can ascertain a programme of meditation for you to include in your personal self care routine. Meditation creates the space you've been looking for.

Yoga

Tuesday  9.30-10.30am    Gently Healing
Wednesday eve 7.30-9pm     Dynamic Sivananda based

The word “yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit word ”yuj,” which means ”to unify” or ”to yoke.”

This origin of the word ”yoga” and the practice of yoga are closely related, since practicing yoga involves seeking to ”unite” your body, mind and spirit. Achieving this union allows you to connect with your inner self, leading to a sense of contentment and tranquility.

New to yoga? The initial practise is listening. Both to external instruction and internal feedback. I encourage all students to leave the competitve spirit outside. We all have different body history's. Unique. The initial practise is to reach optimal stretch without strain. Here you find the experience of release of stored tension.

Next is to synchromise the movement with the breath. Harmonise. Here your practise deepens. All levels of the being  begin to purifiy. The body decompresses, the mind and emotions calm. You experience relief, inner quiet, space. Peace.

Here connection with your individual experience of source becomes possible.

All you have to do is turn up to class, again & again...

Padhabhyanga   1hr £45
1.5hr £60
This treatment focuses on relieving tired, achey lower legs and feet. Fantastic if you are standing or driving long hours. This treatment is the antidote!

To begin with your feet are soaked in a warm coconut wash foot bath. This softens  and relaxes the nervous system and skin. It opens the pores ready to recieve organic oils to the underlying tissues.

The feet are then rubbed dry with a towel to remove dead skin.

As you lie comfortably on the massage table, warm oils and various massage techniques are used to release pain and stored tension. The upward flow of blood (caused by your leg being held in a supported position) relieves varicose veins and removes pressure build up and puffiness.

The legs and feet are left feeling refreshed, invigorated, light and new.

Call me to book: 0797 090 8850 (between 8am-8pm)

Marma Therapy   1hr £45
1.5hr £60
Energetic point balancing. This is a method of balancing and clearing the energetic channels that run throughout our bodies carrying our vital life force.

In this treatment using my fingertips I seek out the numerous marma points  and 'listen' as to how they are flowing. There are main points (junctions) and many minor points. The marma system is tuned, then fine-tuned to bring about a soothing, healing state. A subtle, yet powerful treatment.

My first Ayurvedic teacher, Chandrasekhar, likened marma therapy to the slight, subtle movements a puppet master makes with the crossbar that is attached to the strings.

These strings in turn, produce large movements in the puppet itself. So lightly touching marma energy points (crossbar), with healing intention,  produce's  balancing effect on the body (puppet).

Call me to book: 0797 090 8850 (between 8am-8pm)
 

Pinda Sweda   1hr £50
1.5hr £65

Perfect if you like a stronger massage.

Add an extra bolu or herbal compress for £5.

Abhyanga Massage   1hr £45
1.5hr £60

Abhyanga is a type of oil massage, using specific depth, pressure and oils for your constitution (body type). It heals and prevents nervous disorders. Removes fatigue and stress. Reduces insomnia, stimulates antibody production (immune system) and nourishes all systems of the body.

Rubbing, pressing and kneading generous quantities of oil into the body aids the lymphatic system which is throughout. This stimulates circulation and aids in purifying the blood of wastes, whilst supporting the endocrine (hormonal) system. When our hormones are balanced excess mental activity is also calmed.
