Please inform your doctor about any complementary therapies that you are utilising, particularly if you are undergoing cancer treatment.

Reflexology

Reflexology treatments use points on the feet, lower leg and hands, which correspond with different areas of the body.

Reflexology considers all the holistic factors that may be affecting your wellbeing. The aims of Reflexology treatments are to promote relaxation and to help your body find its natural balance.

Reflexology is based on ancient therapies, which were used in Egypt, India and China. The idea developed much later in the West. In 1915, Dr William Fitzgerald developed the concept of ‘Zone therapy’. He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas of the body, within the same zone. In the 1930s, Eunice Ingham further developed this idea, into what is known today as reflexology. Eunice believed that working on areas of the feet could help to bring the body’s energy back into balance as she hypothesised that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Reflexology is a lovely relaxing treatment that will help to put a spring back into your step.

Reflexology is provided by Roz Cutts, who initially trained as a Podiatrist, so there is very little that she doesn’t know about feet!

Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on an ancient healing tradition and uses Ayurvedic principles.

Ayurveda in Sanskrit means “life knowledge”; it is an ancient medical practice that was developed in India. Ayurvedic practices are now used in complementary therapies.

Indian Head Massage is a beautiful, relaxing treatment, that stimulates deep pressure points to re-balance your energy, while petrissage massage strokes promote relaxation.

Daoyin Tao

Daoyin Tao (pronounced DOW yin TOWn) is a powerful synergy of softened and adapted Chinese and Western massage techniques, harmoniously blended to create a face, neck and shoulder massage, that promotes a subtle yet positive healing potential. Trapped and stagnant energy is released, allowing the body to relax, rebalance, decongest, rejuvenate and revitalize. Daoyin Tao treatment meets you at your point of need and leaves you with a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
