Reflexology

Reflexology is known as a zone therapy and meridian therapy. Energy travels through the body and may become trapped. By using reflexology this can help to unblock these areas so they travel freely again through the organs and body parts making the individual feel re-energized.

Reflexology is a popular alternative therapy. It may: provide relaxation, improve circulation, reduce pain, soothe tired feet, and encourage healing naturally.

Reflexology can help restore balance with conditions and symptoms such as:

Stress, hormone imbalances, digestive problems, bladder issues, menstrual disorders and headaches.

It can take a course of 3 to 4 treatments to restore a certain balance, but this depends on each individual.

“Hot stones are basalt stones, which are igneous rock. During a volcanic eruption, basalt stone is formed when the lava cools.”

Hot Stone Massage

Kate has nearly 6 years experience working with hot stones.

Hot stones is recommended if you like a deep relaxing massage

Kate recommends at least an hour for a back massage to feel the full benefit. A full body can be beneficial if you have tight legs, and arms, along with the shoulders, neck and back.

Hot stones

Hot stones are basalt stones, which are igneous rock. During a volcanic eruption, basalt stone is formed when the lava cools.

Heavy elements, such as iron magnesium, mix silica and oxygen make the stones dark and give them the ability to hold heat for a long period of time.

By using the heated stones Kate uses gliding movements to spread the heat over the body. She can identify where the body may require deeper pressure. By using the heat this can help the cells receive more oxygen and nutrients. The waste material is generally removed rapidly through corresponding increase in lymph flow.

This release is believed to re-balance the body and mind.

Swedish Massage is a system know as ‘medical gymnastics’

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage was developed in Sweden, a system know as ‘medical gymnastics’.

These techniques include effleurage (long gliding strokes), petrissage (lifting and kneading), friction, which is firm and tapotement is brisk tapping or percussion movements, and vibration is rapidly vibrating or shaking muscles.

This massage can be beneficial for increasing level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility whilst easing tension. Having regular treatments may help prevent a build up of stress to the body and mind and can encourage the use of healing naturally.
