‘too often we underestimate
the power of a touch..
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around’
Reflexology therapy is believed to have originated from Egypt and China around 5,000 years ago; where the feet and hands were worked on to promote good health and well being.
Each area of the foot relates to specific organs, limbs and glands of the body. Reflexology therapy is used to stimulate, tone, relax and strengthen the whole mind-
body system and helps the body to re-balance. The fingers and thumbs are used to apply pressure to minute reflex points in and around the feet.
Craniosacral originates from Osteopathy and has been developed from discoveries about the body's subtle physiology made by Osteopaths in the USA around 100 years ago.
These findings show a rhythmic movement in all cells in the body which is vital to life. This was named the 'craniosacral motion' and is so subtle that it is barely measurable with instruments, but a trained therapist is able to perceive it.
Craniosacral therapists are trained to feel this subtle
motion in the body through their hands and can use it to find where there is congestion or restriction.
Reiki is a gentle, safe and holistic system of healing working to harmonise, heal and balance the body, mind, emotions and spirit.
The word Reiki is Japanese in origin and is made up of two words: rei, meaning 'spiritual' and ki, meaning 'energy' and refers to the life force within us and around us – the life force of the entire universe. The word Reiki is pronounced Rey-kee in the west and Lay-kee in Japan. Reiki is also a system of healing and spiritual development as taught by Dr Usui, the founder of Reiki.
