Reflexology - Reflexology is a culmination of an ancient healing art and reflex techniques. Gentle massage and alternating pressure is applied to the feet on reflex points (involuntary responses to a stimulus). Reflexes are specific, precise and purposeful. The alternating action by the thumbs and fingers can help lacate and disperse waste products to improve neural communication. This in turn improves the body's natural energy flow, relaxing tension and restoring balance - a state of well being.
Reflexology supports the body's natural healing ability. It may result in:
- Improves circulation: Stimulates the circulation. This helps the transport of nutrients and oxygen around the body and encourages waste removal.
- Stress reduction: Reflexology can help reduce nerve and muscle tension by inducing deep relaxation, allowing the body to repair itself.
- Pain relief: Reflexology has a positive effect on the nervous system by promoting the release of endorphins. Endorphins are natural pain relieving agents produced in the body. They also assist to elevate mood.
- Revitalisation of energy: Clearing blockages, opening energy pathways may revitalise the body with renewed energy. The process initiates the body's own healing forces that improve its defences and encourages better immunity.
- Reflexology, foot massage/Reiki (if you choose to receive it): 35 min. - £28.00
Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei means "universal wisdom" and Ki means " life force". Reiki is therefore vital life energy guided by Universal wisdom. Reiki is universal and not connected to any religion or belief system. Reiki is unique in that the energy is drawn through the practitioner, as opposed to being directed by the healer. Reiki works at a deep level where there may be mental, emotional or psychological blocks or imbalances which may be causing the physical problem. It works gently and effectively on the physical and mental body to restore balance.

What is Chinese Cupping?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
Cupping therapy has been further developed as a means to open the 'Meridians' of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissue. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians.
Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping is the best deep tissue massage available. Cupping, the technique, is very useful and safe .
Now plastic cups based on the traditional cups are used The new cups have done away with the traditional firing. This has made the application of the cups easier and safer. It has a good penetrating effect and a big drawing strength. It has not only improved efficacy but also simplified the procedures of cupping therapy.
The essential oils applied on the skin and the rubbing action associated with cupping also provides an effective healing solution. Normally, your back will receive liberal amounts of oils during cupping sessions. After establishing the cups on their appointed spots, the therapist will run the cups along your muscles and nerve endings. The massaging action coupled with the suction technique can stimulate activity of health cells. This is made possible through the promotion of excellent blood circulation. With good circulation and healthy activity and growth of cells, your body immune system can effectively fight diseases. This then will lead to good health.
Cupping is recommended principally for respiratory and lung disorders. It is believed that its action against colds is not through direct combat against virus, but through strengthening the capacity of the body to produce more anti-virus. Its action against arthritis and rheumatism can be attributed to the stimulation of muscles through the application of heat and friction during cupping sessions.
Chinese Cupping can be offered as a stand alone treatment or incorporated in other therapies. Please ask at the Centre if you have any questions.
