There’s nothing more relaxing and calming than a soothing aromatherapy massage or Reiki Treatment, that is why I have created the perfect environment for my clients to feel completely safe, nurtured, and pampered. My therapy room is nestled under beautiful climbing English Ivy; this amazing plant itself has great healing properties. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates used ivy to prevent intoxication, reduce swelling, and as an aesthetic. Now herbalists use it to treat respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. Unlike many Spas and Beauty Salons, which are frequently visited by many clients in one day, my studio will help you feel safe in the knowledge that you will be and have been the only important client in my tranquil therapy room. No sharing of waiting rooms or queuing at reception areas, no waiting outside for your appointment. I have designed this space for my clients to feel completely safe, pampered, and nurtured from the moment they enter my beautiful English garden. The garden is full of healing plants from lavender to witch-hazel. Open the lovely wooden stable door and step into my calming, peaceful, and tranquil studio.
Massage not only helps ease away achy and tense muscles and the niggling tightness we often feel in our shoulders and neck due to our ever-increasing busy and stressful lives. It can also help soothe our moods and help ease our over-thinking minds, enabling us to switch off and enjoy being cared for while in a safe, calm, and tranquil environment. Massage can help you completely switch off from the worry and concerns of this ever-changing busy world.
Now for a little science and some medical facts; some studies have found massage may be helpful for those people who suffer from anxiety, insomnia related to stress, headaches, digestive disorders, sports injuries, soft tissue strains or injuries. One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This benefit occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol, and norepinephrine, are also reduced; studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Reiki Massage is a form of energy healing and dates back many thousands of years; it is said to involve the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to their client. Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blockages built up during our life journeys. Reiki can help aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is also said to induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall wellbeing.
