Reflexology - can be described as a non intrusive method, working points over the feet and hands that relate to different aspects and areas of the body. The aim of Reflexology is to kick start the process of the body and mind to naturally rebalance and work towards gaining its optimum equilibrium.
Treatments on the feet and hands can also incorporate some work into the legs and arms respectively. Depending on client preference, oils and creams or none at all can be used for the treatment.
It’s wonderfully relaxing and anyone of any age can receive Reflexology, from new born to those receiving end of life care, it can be used as a support for other health issues from fertility, palliative care and depression all the way through to allowing someone timeout and a moment to just stop.
Reiki - literally means universal life energy and is a technique to help reduce stress and aid relaxation as a way to promote emotional and physical well being. The basis of Reiki, which originated in Japan, is the belief that a life force runs through all living things and that when this life force, this energy, gets blocked and or disrupted it can lead to stress and illness. This is a therapy where the the person receiving Reiki remains fully clothed throughout the treatment.
Seated Massage - is the type of treatment we use regularly within the work place and public environments, tailoring both to the environment as well as the clients needs. It is a great treatment to get a hit and run relaxation which can also be invigorating and refreshing, helping to relieve tight and aching muscles.
A seated massage treatment can be carried out on a chair or massage chair where a therapist will work over the back, head, neck, shoulders, arms and hands of the client. Generally this treatment is carried out through clothing but clients can request oils to be used.

A Sports Massage therapist uses a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissue - the skin, muscle, tendons, ligaments and fascia – to aid, correct and support problems and imbalances caused by repetitive, intense, arduous and day to day physical activities as well as trauma.
Swedish Massage - is known in Sweden as ‘classic massage’ and uses a range of techniques similar to Deep Tissue Massage, though not working as deeply as Deep Tissue, the different pressures used not only create a sense of calm and relaxation it also promotes toxin elimination, increased oxygen in the circulation and aids suppleness in ligaments, tendons and muscle tissue.
