Shiatsu

Shiatsu is an ancient healing art and derived from oriental medicine. In the middle of the 20th century, Shiatsu became recognised as a therapy in its own right. Shiatsu is a Japanese word that means 'finger pressure'.

It is based on the philosophy of Yin and Yang, the five elements and the flow of energy (ki). It is often described as acupuncture without the needles. During the treatment the client is asked to wear loose clothing. The treatment takes place a ground level on a futon.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic therapy that is used to treat the whole body by working on the feet. There are reflex areas on the feet that correspond to the rest of the body.

It aims to restore balance by increasing the circulation of the internal organs, glands and other parts of the body, this in turn unblocks the energy that stagnates in the feet.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massage is the use of essential oils to enhance physical and emotional wellbeing. The whole person is considered, taking into account their physical and emotional state.

Records have shown oils being extracted as far back as 3,000 b.c. Essential oils can be absorbed into the blood system, through the skin and via respiration. This is why after a massage it is beneficial to leave the oil on the skin for as long as possible for the skin to absorb the individual properties of the essential oils.
