Alternative Treatments

 

Reflexology:

Reflexology is a therapy which involves using the thumb and fingers to apply pressure to the feet. There are points on the feet that relate to organs, glands and systems of the body (e.g the digestive system). These points are known as reflex points; a reflex is when stimulation at one point brings about a response in another area. During a treatment, the entire foot is worked, thus giving a ‘work-out’ to the entire body. The aim of each treatment is not to work on one specific organ or gland, but to get your body systems working to the best of their ability. A reflexology treatment works on the actual symptoms and also aims to treat the cause, therefore restoring and balancing the whole body.

Chakra Balancing with Crystals

Crystal therapy works on the theory that the cause of an illness can be found within the electromagnetic field, also known as the aura, which forms an egg shape around us. The energy within the aura should flow freely, if the energy is blocked, due to illness or stress and the blockages are not cleared, this could result in disease. When certain crystals are placed on the chakras they can help to balance the chakras and unblock them so that they function more efficiently. During the treatment, while the crystals work their magic, a relaxing hand massage will be given.

Thermal Auricular Therapy:

Thermal Auricular Therapy is also known as ‘Ear Candling’. This therapy involves lighting and inserting the ear candle into the clients’ ear. The candle acts as a chimney and has a drawing effect, so it gently helps to loosen ear wax and clear the ear and nasal passages. The air vibrates through the candle and gently massages the eardrum; this in turn creates a warm, swirling current of air and a slight vacuum, which helps dry up any moisture. The candle is handmade using natural ingredients including cotton, bees wax, honey, sage and chamomile. To complete the treatment, a drainage massage technique is applied to the face and head leaving you feel soothed and relaxed.
