Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is beneficial for physical, mental, and emotional health. It has been practiced in Indian for over 5000 years.
The massage increases mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow, and aids with the elimination of toxins. As well as relieving stiffness in the muscles, it also helps to relieve eye strain and tension headaches.
Indian head massage is excellent for all types of stress related problems, promoting total relaxation leaving you with a feeling of well-being.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
It is administered by laying on of hands and is based on the idea that unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones 'life force energy' is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed. If it is high we are more capable of feeling happy and healthy.
Reiki promotes healing on all levels, helping to release mental and emotional blockages, in turn activating the body's own natural healing system and restoring physical and emotional well-being.
Crystal therapy is a gentle non-invasive form of vibrational, or energy, healing. It has been used for thousands of year by many different cultures around the world to assist the body to heal itself.
Crystals emit tiny electrical impulses which are received and recognised by the body's neurological system. Each crystal has its own unique signature of energy, and when placed on or around the body, they interact with the human energy field, bringing balance on all levels. Crystals not only bring deep relaxation, but also help reduce stress and anxiety.
Thermal Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candling)
This gentle and soothing therapy is indeed well known for its calming and relaxing effects. Ear candles are now widely used throughout the modern world for helping specific conditions affecting the head and ears, such as sinus congestion, ear noises, and excessive ear wax.
Treatment involves placing an ear candle - a hollow tube made of unbleached cotton that is coated with natural ingredients such as beeswax, honey, and herbs - onto the edge of the ear canal. Treating each ear separately, the candle gently burns down. It is believed to act like a 'chimney' creating a light vacuum. The rising air through the column of the candle and gentle natural movement of the flame creates vibrations to gently massage the ear drum, this can help regulate ear pressure and generate a calming and relaxing effect.
Raindrop Therapy Massage
Raindrop massage is a procedure for applying a sequence of highly antimicrobial essential oils to the feet, back, and spine.
The purpose of Raindrop is to stimulate every organ, muscle, and bone of the body at a cellular level through oils. Boosting the immune system, bringing the body into electrical balance, and possibly enabling the release of toxins or disease wherever they may be lodged, including those illnesses lodged in the mind and emotions. Essential oils are some of the most concentrated natural extracts known, exerting significant antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, hormonal, and psychological effects.
Aromatherapy sates back to 5000BC and is derived from the ancient practices of using natural plant essences to promote health and well-being.
Through massage and inhalation, skin and the lungs readily absorb the essential oil molecules into the bloodstream, cleansing out cellular receptor sites of toxins. Many of the oils are anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antiviral, and anti-bacterial.
Some of the health benefits include deep relaxation, and may help relieve stress and anxiety. It can be uplifting, sedating or stimulating depending upon the clients needs, and restores energy balance within the body.
Reflexology is a relaxing and pleasant holistic therapy that uses the feet to treat the whole body. It aims to restore balance by increasing circulation to internal organs, glands, and other parts of the body through the feet.
By working on the reflexes of the feet, reflexologists can help facilitate homeostasis by unblocking energy that stagnates in the feet. There are 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot. It seems they deserve as much if not more attention than any other part of the body.
PEMF Therapy (Pulse Electromagnetic Field)
PEMF therapy is a natural, drug free complementary therapy that may help many conditions, such as:
- Pain relief
- Improved mental clarity
- Nerve regeneration
- Faster and better healing
- Increased energy levels
- Improved cell health
- Reduced inflammation
How does it work?
A PEMF device sends bursts of low-level electromagnetic pulses into the organs, bones, tissues, and cells of the body. These pulses stimulate cell activity and growth which encourage fast and natural healing.
Everything in nature generates an electromagnetic field, including the cells in the human body. This means that every organ in your body produces its own electromagnetic field as well. This field is strengthened by the fact that your cells communicate using electromagnetic pulses. It's this energy field that PEMF devices stimulate and influence.
