Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is a natural healing art and is the practice of applying precise hand and finger pressure to specific points on the feet to stimulate the body’s own healing system. These points are believed to correspond to specific organs and structures in the body.

Reflexology is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment. Since the feet are the only areas being addressed, there is never any need for removal of clothing.
Reflexology has many benefits including:

  • Improves the circulation of both blood and lymph

  • Balances the body’s system and organs

  • Induces deep relaxation

  • Helps alleviate insomnia

  • Stimulating more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet

  • Provides a more efficient removal of toxins and impurities

What happens during a reflexology treatment?

On your first visit the reflexology practitioner will conduct a full personal consultation. This consultation enables the treatment to be tailored to your specific needs. A reflexology treatment generally lasts for about one hour. You will be invited to lie on a comfortable treatment couch. The reflexologist will then use their hands to apply precise pressure techniques to the feet treating specific points which correspond to all organs and systems of the body. Following treatment, any significant findings will be discussed with you. As the effects of reflexology are cumulative, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments.

Facial Reflexology

Imagine that deeply calming and satisfying feeling that you get in your body after an intense workout, where your mind and cells hums with contentment. Now transfer that feeling to your face! The first benefit of Facial Reflexology (which includes deep tissue facial massage) is total relaxation.

Facial reflexology can produce a natural Botox effect by relaxing facial muscles; it can tighten the skin by improving muscle tone; and it can give you a healthy radiant glow that makes you look as good as you feel, and feel as good as you look.

How does facial reflexology work?

Facial Reflexology works on the same principles, but the treatment takes place on your face and head. This non-invasive treatment is based on the theory that areas on your face are connected to areas of your body, and stimulating them improves underlying energy imbalances which promotes wellbeing. The proximity of the face to the brain is key to the effectiveness of this original therapy.

feel good…and look good!

Facial Reflexology is not a beauty treatment. However, it does have rather lovely beautifying side effects, quite literally ‘lifting’ the face to make your face feel and look smoother and more toned. It also encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates the facial nerves, increases blood flow and muscle tone, helps to build up new skin tissue and improves skin tone.

Facial Reflexology aims to help reduce the symptoms and effects of many common ailments including:

  • Stress,

  • IBS,

  • Back Pain,

  • Arthritis,

  • Depression,

  • MS, Menstrual and Hormonal Ailments,

  • Sleep Disorders

Facial reflexology treatments are very popular during pregnancy and are often used to help promote a shorter and natural labour.

 

 

LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION THERAPY

LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION THERAPY FOR SWOLLEN LEGS, FEET AND ANKLES

Are you dealing with uncomfortable swelling in your feet and ankles? This is known as edema, which is the result of excess fluid building up in your tissues. It can be caused by many different things, such as heart disease, pregnancy or certain medications.

You don’t have to put up with swollen feet and ankles. There’s a lot you can do for relief, such as lymphatic circulation therapy - presotherapy.

Also known as Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT), presotherapy improve the function of your lymphatic system.

Your lymphatic system is similar to your circulatory system. But instead of blood, lymphatic vessels carry a colorless fluid called lymph throughout your body. Lymph bathes all your tissues, and one of its main functions is to move excess fluids into your bloodstream to be delivered to the bladder and other organs for elimination.

When your lymphatic system isn’t flowing properly, it can lead to fluids building up in your tissues. The problem can be compounded by the fact that lymph doesn’t circulate like blood, which is continuously kept moving by your heart. Instead, lymph relies on the movements of your body to flow.

Muscle movement and the natural action of breathing will move lymph, so keeping active will always help your lymphatic system. But if your mobility is impaired, lymphatic massage is another great way to keep your lymph flowing.

Paraffin Treatments

Paraffin Treatment

Paraffin Treatment

 

 

A Paraffin Treatment uses warm oil-based wax to provide pain relief to hands, feet and sore joints and muscles. 

Benefits

A paraffin treatment soothes chronic joint pain and relaxes stiff muscles, and improves blood flow to the treated area, as noted by Therabath, a manufacturer of paraffin treatment products. It increases range of motion for people with arthritis, bursitis and other chronic conditions that cause pain and stiffness. Paraffin treatments also smooth and soften dry, chapped, rough and scaly skin. It can be helpful for chronic skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.

How It Works

Paraffin treatment is a form of deep heat therapy. Liquified paraffin wax is very efficient at absorbing and retaining heat. When you dip your hand or foot, for example, into the paraffin bath, heat transfers from the wax into the affected area as the wax solidifies. The heat increases circulation and relieves pain and stiffness. To aid in skin softening, paraffin increases blood supply to the skin, while also opening pores and trapping moisture from underlying layers of skin

Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage

An eradicator of tiresome days. Areas concentrated are your back, shoulders and neck, which upholds a lot of tight stressed& tensed muscles. The natural benefit of having loosened shoulder and back muscles is feeling pain free. A neck massage is very instrumental in curbing neck pain to a great extent. It is very important to get rid of neck pain at its earliest as the pain may spread all over the body if left unattended.

Time: 30 mins
 

 

 

A Sollux lamp serves to produce infrared and visible light radiation. This radiation penetrates to a debth of about 3 cm and causes tissue expansion and blood vessel dilation which in turn promote better blood circulation, increased metabolism, decreased muscle tension and creates an analgesic effect.

The Sollux lamp is equiped with a set of filters that are colored red, blue and violet.

The red filter lets through red visible and infrared radiation. This radiation is used in cases of tissue inflammation for the purpose of reducing swelling, in case of skin injury and  slow healing wounds. It is also used in muscle pain and to neutralize the effects of violet radiation in the event of over exposure to this radiation for the purpose of reducing muscle tension before massage or kinetic physical therapy. The blue filter lets through blue or violet light and limits the passage of infrared (heat) radiation. The radiation that passes through this filter has an analgesic and calming effect and causes blood vessels to contract. The blue or violet filters are used in neural pain, in treatment of the effects of injury, in frostbite, hyperesthesia and vasomotor disorders. The choice of the filter used is dependent of the desired therapeutic effect.

Indications:

  • Chronic and sub-acute rheumatoid and inflammatory conditions,

  • Degenerative joint disease,

  • Disc pathology, back pain syndromes,

  • Chronic inflammatory conditions of the nasal cavity, sinuses, external ear and mandibular joints,

  • Preparation for massage and motion exercises.

Counter-indications:

  • Acute skin and soft tissue inflammatory conditions

  • Tendency for bleeding

  • fever

  • varicose veins

  • Circulatory insufficiency

  • Disturbances in periferral vascularization of the extremities

  • Active tuberculosis

  • General emaciation

Description of the treatment:

The patient assumes a comfortable position and uncovers the areas that are to be irradiated. Before the treatment the therapist makes sure that the patient does not have sensory deficiency. The patient should wear protective glasses during the treatment. The treatment last about 20 minutes.
