Here is a little more information on each modality:
Reiki is a highly effective natural system of healing that restores you to balance -physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Reiki unlocks your natural healing ability and connects you deeply to yourself so holistic healing can begin. Reiki is effective in managing physical conditions that aren’t suitable to be treated with other manual therapies. I learnt Reiki in 2002 and have been practicing Reiki daily on myself since then.

If you would like to learn this simple hands on healing method find out about up and coming courses here. I teach Traditional Usui Reiki and offer excellent post course support:
Remedial massage improves muscle and joint pain which can develop while you are at home, work or exercising. During your treatment muscle and nerve stretching and muscle release points are used to improve your blood circulation and muscular tone. Together we go through home exercises which help to strengthen or stretch your muscles. I treat you through your clothes or a towel.
Not currently on offer. Please see Reiki or Shiatsu.
Pre and Post Natal Massage
Receiving treatments throughout your pregnancy has a range of benefits for you and your baby. Pre and post-natal massage decreases your muscle tension, increases your joint movement, induces relaxation and promotes your blood flow. During your treatment emphasis is often placed on your lower back, hips, buttocks, shoulders and feet. You are supported throughout prenatal massage with pillows and towels.
Essential oils have great healing properties. When inhaled or placed on the skin they send messages to your brain creating mental, emotional and physical changes. For example: · lavender promotes relaxation · peppermint increases your energy levels.
I use essential oils that add to the therapeutic effect of your remedial massage.
Shiatsu translates to “finger pressure” in Japanese. It is holistic healing system based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles. Energy moves throughout your body through energy pathways known as meridians which are connected to specific organs. Disruption to this flow of energy may produce pain and stiffness, digestive, emotional and mental imbalances. During a Shiatsu treatment your energy is rebalanced. This helps to relieve your pain and symptoms. You are fully clothed during your treatment while your meridians and muscles are treated with broad palm pressure, stretching, finger pressure, holding and gentle joint rotations.
During a treatment your circulation is stimulated, your nervous system relaxes and your hormonal system rebalances. Like Reiki, Shiatsu is able to treat range of conditions ranging from muscular pain to menstrual difficulties, digestive conditions to anxiety. We may discuss dietary and lifestyle options that help to lessen your symptoms.
I look forward in supporting you to achieve your optimum health and wellbeing.
