More About Therapies

Reflexology

reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas on the feet, hands and ears that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body.

The body is divided into 10 zones and when pressure is applied to these areas it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.

Symptoms responding well to treatment are:

  • Improved Bladder Control
  • Sleep
  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Eyes
  • Pain
  • Sinus problems

Aromatherapy

aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of organic essences of aromatic plants (essential oils) through inhalation and application to restore or enhance health, beauty and well-being

The principle of Aromatherapy is to strengthen an indi­viduals self-healing process by preventative methods and indirect stimulation of the immune system.

Aromatherapy is therefore beneficial to people with MS because;

  • An Aromatherapy massage is a pleasant experience and is something to look forward to
  • It stimulates the immune system and helps to reduce minor illnesses
  • Aromatherapy works on the muscles improving tone and encourages continued use. 

Head Massage

head massage

The aim of head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

What does it involve?

The client, fully clothed, sits on a chair for the treatment. The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. The session will usually last from twenty to forty-five minutes and most therapists like their clients to sit quietly for ten to twenty minutes once the massage has been completed.

What is it good for?

Head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

What are the benefits?

Head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. It also helps to de-clutter the mind.

Reiki

reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
