Indian Head Massage
Used in India and Indian Sub Continent for thousands of years.
Whole families can be seen sitting in front of each other and massaging the head of the person in front of them. Oils such as coconut and sesame as used, gives wonderful lustre to hair.
Indian Head Massage is deeply relaxing. Practised fully clothed so is suitable for all ages.
Perfect for de-stressing and relaxing. Very beneficial for headaches, sinus problems and a myriad of other problems.
Indian Head Massage takes one hour, including initial consultation.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils during massage. Essential oils are derived from flowers, trees, fruit, leaves, bark etc. Not only do they impart a wonderful fragrance but their essence is absorbed by the brain through the Olfactory and Limbic system and can have profound effects on the body.
Some oils are very relaxing, ie, Clary Sage, Lavender. Others are stimulating, e.g., Rosemary. Mandarin is suitable for children while Rose Absolute is wonderful for menstrual problems.
Tea tree is an antiseptic (but all oils have antiseptic properties of some type).
Oils are chosen by the aromatherapist and client to ensure that the right mix is used during the massage. Up to three oils may be used in a blend, which magnifies the synergistic effect.
Reflexology is a method of activating the healing powers of the body by manipulation of energy zones and reflex areas in the feet that correspond to the major organs, glands and body parts.
It dates back to the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians, all of who worked on the feet to promote good health.
Beneficial effects include: reducing stress, improving circulation, detoxing, balancing the body system, revitalising energy and generating a sense of profound relaxation and well-being.
Reiki is a form of healing that works by the practitioner channelling life force/energy into a recipient.
Reiki comes from 2 Japanese words, Rei and Ki. Rei meaning universal and Ki meaning life energy.
The best description of Reiki that I have heard is that when you are channelling Reiki you are like a battery charger connected to the main grid and you give a powerful charge to a person whose own levels are low or drained. Once received, the charge goes wherever it is needed to help that person's healing.
Reiki, in its basic form, is a fully clothed, laying on of hands therapy.
Chakra is a Sanskrit (ancient Indo-Aryan) word meaning wheel or vortex. These are energy centres at various parts of the body.
There are 7 major Chakras and these act as portals for these energy centres. If they become unbalanced, or blocked, there can be health implications as a result.
Readings are taken and assessed and then blockages/imbalances are cleared. This process is carried out fully clothed usually without contact.
Dowsing is used to "read" the various Chakras and to ascertain whether the balancing has been effective.
