Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy that is all around and in us. Reiki therapy is a gentle technique that treats the person as a whole, bringing about a balance and harmony between your body, mind, emotions and spirit, balancing the Chakras. Reiki is wonderful at promoting natural self-healing, relieving pain, enhancing personal awareness, aiding positive thinking and reducing stress. It is incredibly calming and relaxing. £58 for 55 minutes.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialised technique that uses slow, light, rhythmical movements which stimulates the lymphatic vessels so that they contract in a more organised and effective way. The subtle movements activate lymph flow and encourages the drainage of fluid from the tissues into the lymphatic system, cleansing the body of dead cells, bacteria and other waste products. MLD is beneficial for reducing lymphoedema, migraines, swollen legs/ankles, loss of taste, mouth dryness and ME. £62 for 55 minutes.
The myofascial system comprises the muscles (myo) and connective tissue (fascia) in and around your muscles, organs and bones. In a healthy state, fascia can stretch and move, but trauma, inflammation, poor posture and emotional trauma can lead to loss of fascial flexibility. Myofascial Release alleviates tension, restrictions and adhesions to restore balance and function, reduce stiffness and increase flexibility. It is particularly beneficial for chronic pain and symptoms of fibromyalgia. £62 for 55 minutes.
If you are feeling out of balance or have been ill, you may benefit from the our Reflexology foot treatment. Our feet have several reflex areas that form a map of the body and so Reflexology offers a means of improving your overall well-being. Applying pressure to the reflex points on the feet relaxes the body and improves well-being. Reflexology is a gentle therapy that encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance. £58 for 55 minutes.
