Massage Therapy



Massage Therapy

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.



Indian Head Massage

The brain is said to be “the seat of the soul” & is also the centre of our nervous system. This technique manipulates the soft tissues of the face, neck & scalp & helps balance mind, body & spirit.



Cupping

Rather than applying pressure to muscles, a local suction is created on the skin to draw the skin, muscles & tissues upward to enhance circulation, relieve pain

Therapeutic healing Treatments

Our approach to whole health allows us to offer a number of “alternative” therapeutic healing treatments including Acupuncture, Reflexology & various forms of healing such as Reiki. Book a consultation with our practitioners to learn more about how these healing modalities can help you.

Acupuncture

It is a safe & effective alternative treatment where thin needles are inserted into specific anatomical points on the body to allow qi or energy to flow through meridians, which are pathways, that travel throughout the entire body.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, usually directed at the feet or hands. Applying specific pressure using thumb, finger and hand techniques, reflexology reduces tension, improves circulation, and promotes the natural functioning of the related areas bringing the body back to a full stage of homeostasis and full relaxation.

Nutritional Consultations

A nutritional consultation involves building a detailed picture of your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history and any concerns you may have about your health. With this information we can work together to form an eating plan that suits your needs, your lifestyle and your daily commitments.

Energy Healing

Energy medicine, energy therapy, energy healing, vibrational medicine, psychic healing, spiritual medicine or spiritual healing are branches of alternative medicine based on a pseudo-scientific belief that healers can channel healing energy into a patient and effect positive results.
