What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy dates back over 5000 years and focuses on using essential oils for improving or maintaining health and beauty. Hippocrates, known as the “Father of Medicine”, said ‘The way to health, is to have an aromatic bath and massage every day”.  While that is not within the average persons’ reach these days, the use of essential oils, under the supervision of a certified Aromatherapist can greatly enhance many aspects of your life. Essential Oils vary in their numerous properties including being anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, calming, energizing and many others. They strive for balance within the body and when used safely and properly, can promote and harmonize the health of body, mind and soul. Blending custom oils takes a solid understanding of the properties and chemistry of each plant/oil. Seeking out a certified Aromatherapist, ensures you are receiving the best possible advice and limits any reactions. It is important during a consultation to advise the practitioner of any medicines you currently take as well as any medical issues that need to be taken into account.

What is Reiki ( Ray-Kee)?

A healing technique, thousands of years old, based on the principle that the therapist can channel spiritual life force energy into the client, to activate the natural healing processes of the client’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki works on mind, body and spirit. Reiki promotes deep relaxation and provides balance and centering to the client. Unlike regular massage, the client is fully clothed and there is no physical manipulation of the body. Life Energy is delivered by the practitioner using a series of very specific hand movements on and above the client’s body, allowing the energy to flow to the client.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non invasive, manual method of stimulating reflexes in the feet, hands or ears. These reflex points correspond to every organ, gland and body system (Central Nervous system, Endocrine system etc) .  Modern Reflexology has evolved from the ancient civilisations of Egypt, India, China and North and South America.  It was re-introduced to North America in the early 1900’s.  Reflexology is effective for many symptoms such as stress, digestive issues, respiratory difficulties, insomnia and many, many more. A typical treatment last 45 minutes and treatment frequency varies depending on the client’s personal situation and needs.

What is Indian Head Massage (IHM)?

IHM is an integral part of the Ayurvedic healing system that originated in India, millennia ago, and has been passed down through generations. IHM, also known as Champissage, is a form of relaxation massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms which are important energy centers within the body. It is extremely relaxing and has a balancing effect on the client as it helps them to release stress and tension, creating a sense of peace and well-being. IHM is done with the client seated and fully clothed. The benefits are numerous.
