Aromatherapy is a gentle massage therapy that uses natural aromatic oils.
BIO-ENERGY HEALING THERAPIES
These safe, natural therapies gently balance the energy centres of your body and may be effective in promoting relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety, managing pain and enhancing well-being.
This is a light-touch massage which can reduce both pain and tension. The procedure is gentle and the effect cumulative over several treatments. The therapist makes a series of gentle rolling movements with fingers and thumbs to stimulate a healing response at a physical, mental and emotional level. There are short pauses between moves to enable the body to assimilate the signals.
EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE (EFT)
EFT is a form of emotional acupuncture done with tapping rather than using needles. EFT works by clearing negative emotions that may cause disruption to the body’s energy system.
PEDICURES & MANICURES & FACIALS
In addition to pedicures and manicures, we offer a relaxing facial massage using oils or non-toxic beauty products.
Hypnotherapy involves leading you into a deeply relaxed state or “trance” although you will remain aware of your surroundings at all times. It is believed that being in this state increases the potential for you to make positive changes in your life.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
This gentle treatment can soothe away upper body tension, alleviate headaches, reduce mental tiredness and help ease sinus problems.
The comfort of touch is well documented and in the skilled hands of the massage therapist can bring relaxation, a feeling of warmth and relief from pain.
Reflexology is an holistic treatment in which the therapist uses the pressure points on the hands and feet to encourage the body to achieve a sense of balance and well-being.
Our group relaxation sessions take place each Wednesday at 12 noon and last for approximately 45 minutes. They are drop-in sessions and are facilitated by the Centre’s Complementary Therapy Lead.
Yoga is a system of physical, mental and spiritual development. It is an aid to relaxation and the effects of yoga practice are both therapeutic and restorative.
