The holistic approach is to treat each individual as a whole. This makes it necessary to obtain a wide range of details to determine which body systems to work on - taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, exercise, allergies and emotional factors. Effective communication and treatment will help to restore a sense of well-being, both physically and mentally, enabling you to perform to your optimum level.<p>
Craniosacral Therapy is used to detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth - which make up the cranium - down to the sacrum, or tailbone area. The therapy has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems and central nervous system disorders.<p>
Aromatherapy is the use of organic essences of aromatic plants for healing and the maintenance of vitality. Each oil has its own healing properties and fragrance. They work by the absorbtion of minute quantities of the oil through the skin and through inhalation of the aroma. Relaxing aromatherapy massage can relieve anxiety, reduce stress, and stimulate the immune system.<p>
Reflexology deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet which correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Pressure and massage, when applied to certain zones, can improve the functions of the internal organs and relieve pain. The release of tension allows the healing forces in the body to restore the natural balance and energy flow, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.<p>
Holistic Facials combine relaxing massage of the face, neck, head and shoulders. Gentle manipulation of acupuncture points that, with light touch can be used to release tension, transforming the facial appearance and promoting general health and wellbeing. This includes cleansing and toning, a gentle facial peel to remove any dead skin cells, acupuncture massage with oils chosen for individual skin type and a final mask to purify and remove toxins.<p>
Therapeutic Massage works on the soft tissue of the body, stimulating both the blood and the lymphatic systems. A vigorous massage incorporating wringing, kneading and percussion movements, along with lymphatic draining techniques to remove toxins from the body. This can relieve and soothe stiff muscles and joints, improve muscle tone, and increase metabolism.<p>
Sports/Remedial Massage is used for both phychological and physiological benefits. Local metabolic improvement and the relief of fatigue in muscles is important to improved circulation and the acceleration of lymphatic drainage. What distinguishes sports/remedial massage is that it can focus on specialised areas of injury, rather than treating the whole body at one time, and uses a greater degree of deep tissue manipulation.<p>
Indian Head Massage is based on the ancient Ayurvedic healing system practised in India for over a thousand years. It covers the head, face, neck, shoulders and upper back. Stimulation of the scalp helps keep your hair healthy and is extremely effective for relieving headaches and an aching upper back, for releasing stress and tension, as well as relaxing one into a deep state of calmness and tranquility.
