Therapeutic treatments

for health and ease
Reflexology

 

A therapeutic treatment on the feet for the whole body, using pressure technique to stimulate specific points on the feet that correspond to individual organs or body parts. It provides a great tone up for all the organs and systems of the body. 

It can be both relaxing and rejuvenating, encouraging health and wellbeing within.

Reflexology has long been used to promote good health and was practised in Ancient China as part of a healthcare system based on meridian theory. It was used in conjunction with acupuncture, the feet being worked first to find out which body parts were out of balance or in trouble; to relax and break down congestions; to stimulate the circulation and energy flow and to enhance all the body systems through stimulation.  Acupuncture needles were then applied to specific points to finely tune the system, to free and improve the flow of energy around the body and maximise the effectiveness of the treatment.

Pressure point therapy and foot massage have been used the world over for thousands of years, but although we have evidence of this we know little of the understanding behind the work except from China.

Reflexology takes into account and enhances the whole person, the way the body works, which in turn affects the way the mind is able to work and your lifestyle and the stresses you are under, which affect the emotions you feel and how they flow.

Reflexology helps the whole person because the whole body is represented on the feet and hands through points which can be individually stimulated to produce a reaction in the corresponding body part. It is common when treating a specific area on the feet that the client can feel a sensation in that precise part of the body.

The physiological effects of reflexology treatment

Reflexology encourages the energy to flow freely around the body, by releasing tension held in the body the functioning of the organs is improved. Treatment stimulates the circulation of the blood and lymph, so that the removal of waste products and toxins is increased and the supply of nutrients throughout the blood supply is improved. By releasing long-term muscular contractions, the constrictions these impose on the nerves is relieved so that the nerve supply is freed. 

Aromatherapy Massage

A full body Aromatherapy massage utilising the pure therapeutic grade Doterra essential oils. Aromatherapy uses essential oils that have natural healing properties. These oils are the extracted volatile, aromatic compounds found in the flowers, fruit, seeds, leaves, bark, stems, roots and resin of certain plants and pith of the citrus fruits. They are treasured for their enhancement of beauty, flavour and health.  Aromatherapy can boost wellbeing, relieve stress and help to invigorate your body. Aromatherapy massage uses essential oils derived from plants to achieve personalised therapeutic benefits. In aromatherapy massage, essential oils are usually mixed with a carrier oil like coconut, sweet almond, apricot kernel, or grapeseed oil. A relaxing aromatherapy massage, for instance, might have lavender and bergamot, while a massage for sore muscles might include peppermint and eucalyptus.

 

The essential oils are directly absorbed through the skin into your bloodstream. The oil can then travel through your body into the cells and have an effect on a specific organ or function in your body. Aromatherapy massage is a therapeutic technique which combines the pure natural properties of the essential oils and the healing power of massage therapy. Aromatherapy massage not only has powerful physical, emotional and mental effects from the aroma, the benefit also comes from the absorption of the natural plant oils. The benefits of aromatherapy massage affect a wide range of health conditions and body systems including the nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and muscular systems.
After a consultation, essential oils are selected based on your personal requirements and are mixed in with the massage oil and applied through massage techniques to the whole body.

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
Here are some benefits of massage therapy.

1. It Is Relaxing – When the body is tense and under stress, it produces unhealthy levels of the well-known stress hormone, cortisol, which can contribute to weight gain, sleeplessness, digestive problems, and headaches. Massage therapy has been shown to decrease cortisol levels in the body. This enables the body to enter a recovery mode. Moreover, this form of therapy also triggers lasting feelings of relaxation, improved mood, and reduced stress levels.

2. It Reduces Stress – Not only can massage therapy help with stress relief, but regular massage sessions over a prolonged period of time can boost energy levels, reduce pain, and stimulate individuals on physical as well as emotional levels.

3. It Can Help Lower Blood Pressure – Regular massage therapy sessions have been found to reduce blood pressure levels. In fact, some long-term studies have shown that a consistent massage program can reduce both systolic (upper number) and diastolic (lower number) blood pressure. Moreover, it can also reduce cortisol levels within the body. Furthermore, consistent massage sessions can also reduce trigger sources for anxiety, hostility, tension, and depression. In turn, lower blood pressure levels can also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and/or kidney failure, as well as many other health issues.

4. It Promotes Muscle Relaxation – The purpose of massage therapy is to target the source of the body’s pain via eliminating tense muscles, increasing flexibility, and providing relaxation to the affected muscles as well as the body as a whole. Massage also promotes circulation to the affected or injured muscles, which increases nutrients and oxygen to the damaged tissues. In turn, this increased activity to the affected sites reduces stiffness and edema (swelling) in the muscles and joints, as well as increases flexibility to help reduce pain. Moreover, this form of therapy also releases endorphins (pain-killing hormones), which boost the dopamine and serotonin levels in the body. These hormones assist the body in many ways–physically as well as emotionally. Case in point, they promote healing, pain management, and feelings of euphoria, as well as help to calm the nerves.

5. It Can Help Improve Circulation – The long-term benefits of massage therapy are not to be underestimated. Improved circulation is part of a snowball effect that occurs in the body as a result of receiving regular massage therapy on a consistent basis. This is because proper circulation brings damaged, stiff, and tense muscles the rich blood supply they need to promote healing.

Moreover, massage also promotes improved circulation via the use of hands-on pressure, which moves the blood through the damaged and congested areas of the body. In turn, the release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow into tissues. Furthermore, the squeezing, twisting, and pulling action of the massage technique also removes lactic acid from the muscle tissues. As a result, this action improves the lymph fluid circulation, which carries metabolic waste products away from internal organs and muscles. In turn, this results in lower blood pressure levels and improved overall body function.

6. It Can Help Improve Posture – Many people  experience back, neck, and muscle pain from a variety of sources. However, the primary cause of this pain results from poor posture. In fact, chronic back pain, which is the number one reason for missed work days and second most common cause of disability, is often the result of incorrect or poor posture while standing and/or sitting. Moreover, being overweight, poor posture, and repetitive or overuse movements can also contribute to the strain on the back and other potential problem areas. As a result, the added strain often causes spasms, pain, and tense muscles in the hips, glutes, back, neck, and legs.

Massage therapy can help get the body back into proper alignment. In fact, improving one’s posture can be one of the most beneficial and relaxing aspects of massage therapy. Massage allows the body to relax and loosen the muscles made tense and sore via bad posture. In turn, this allows the body to position itself in its organic and pain-free posture. As part of a consistent massage therapy program, the body’s muscles are loosened and relaxed. Moreover, the joints have greater freedom, flexibility, range of motion, and pressure points are relieved. As a result, the body is able to position itself in an organic and healthy posture. In short, massage therapy helps to correct the positions and movements developed over time as a reaction to pain.

7. It Can Help Strengthen the Body’s Immune System – Regular massage sessions provide many benefits to the human body. It is a well-known fact that individuals who experience high levels of stress are more vulnerable to illness and injury. When stress is combined with sleep disturbances and poor nutrition, the impact is directed at the body’s immune system. Its ability to naturally protect itself against infections, pathogens, and bacteria is greatly reduced. Some might wonder how massage therapy benefits the immune system. Studies have indicated that regular massage sessions not only help reduce stress, but can also boost the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and enhances the body’s ability to deliver nourishment. Moreover, massage therapy can be a great addition to any exercise program. Much like regular exercise can keep the body fine-tuned, regular massage therapy can help keep the immune system strong and resilient.

And finally

Seratonin and dopamine are released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual….stress much easier to overcome.
