• March Newsletter

    March offers us the Spring Equinox Festival where day and night are equal in length, reminding us of the need for balance in our lives. Why not practise the art of communication, of being open to people you meet. For change begins with the energy you give out and this too becomes the energy you receive.

    On the Equinox (March 20th) put aside a whole day to walk in wild places, with friends or alone, depending on your need. Set off early with simple food and drink, a notebook, a compass, a walkers map an some quests such as: to find the source of a stream, to climb a peak, to seek out a special tree to site with and learn from … Aim to hold the balance between your inner and outer self and listen to your heart as well as your mind. Whatever you give your energy to right now will grow, so be conscious of what inner seeds you are nurturing. Ask yourself how you can make simple and joyful lifestyle changes that will not only improve the quality of your life, but will help to heal the planetary imbalances of our time. End the day by planting seeds that are charged with our new intentions; grow more than you need so you have seedlings to give away. Tune in with the spirit of primrose – giving courage and strength to get out and start again after the winter, primrose entices us out into the garden to begin tidying and preparing for sprint planting. Restoring energy and renewing enthusiasm for life.

    Historically it is always considered a good time to spring clean. So spring clean your mind and body with some treatment suggestions on special offer this month.

    GlycoRadiance AHA treatment - As an alternative to microdermabrasion, this 40% glycolic acid treatment deeply exfoliates and clarifies the skin. It gently removes dead skin cells, stimulates cell renewal and restores luminosity and radiance to the skin. It also softens scar tissue and is therefore recommended for post acne scaring, hyper pigmentation and chloasma conditions. A course of six treatments is recommended followed by one a month as maintenance £37

    Himalayan salt facial - The Himalayas are the world’s most tranquil, serene, peaceful and undeveloped region; therefore the salt crystals mined from the foothills of the Himalayas are still pure and untouched by pollution. This amazing skin-nutritive facial uses five key products to infuse the skin with minerals, marine collagen, antioxidants, vitamins and omegas leaving it looking healthy, radiant and glowing. Salt stones are used within the treatment to tone and Detox. The treatment can easily be tailored to suit dry, normal, combination and even sensitive skins. £37

    Thermal Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candles)- Also known as ear candling this is a holistic approach to ear syringing. A wonderful relaxing treatment which can help many physical and psychological complaints. The treatment represents a cleansing program for the body as a whole, not just the ears. The "chimney effect" created is a sucking motion when the end of the candle is lit. The flame creates a vibration of moving air, rising up through the candle, which serves to gently massage the ear drum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noises (tinnitus), vertigo and pressure from flying. Also it is soothing for stress and nervousness. The physical effect often described after the treatment is a soothing deep sense of security and feeling of happiness. It is a safe and effective treatment for children too. Although for anyone with a perforated eardrum or who has grommets fitted, it is not safe. £31

    Hot Stone Aromatherapy Massage

    Like herbalism aromatherapy draws on the healing powers of the plant world, but instead of using the whole or part of the plant, it employs only it's essential oil. This potent substance is housed in tiny glands on the outside or deep inside the roots, wood, leaves, flowers or fruit of the plant. When combining carefully blended oils to suit each individual and massage with warmed basalt stones, this type of therapy is second to none. Full body massage with scrub containing bamboo and detox oil. Revive your skin and senses £48

    Back Detox A purifying back treatment including, cleanse, exfoliation with mineral salts, hot stone massage with essential oils and mask £37

    Reiki

    The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century, which is activated by intention. It works on many levels, not just the physical.

    The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. Known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, T’ai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.

    Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.

    Benefits reported by Clients include deep relaxation, promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels.

    Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices, such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges.

    Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation. Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.

    Reiki can enhance everyday living, and regular sessions may help to promote development of a healthier, more resourceful state of being. Crystal Healing

    As well as being beautiful to look at crystals have been used for healing for centuries. Our bodies are made from energy each part moving (vibrating) at a certain frequency. When this delicate energy state is unbalanced, for example through stress, disease occurs. Crystals are a natural source of energy from the earth and when placed on or around our bodies they help to bring it back to a natural state of health.

    A crystal healing session will leave you feeling in a state of peace and calm. So I have combined the two to bring a fantastic 70 minutes of bliss £38

    Treat your mum for mother’s day. 15% off treatment vouchers.

  • February Newsletter

    February Newsletter

    I forgot to mention last month about all the exciting new things I have planned. I am getting new aromatherapy oils and skincare. Made to the highest quality to preserve the energetic value and maximise on healing. I hope to have them by March so more about that then...

    I am also booked on the first part of Ayurvedic massage course this month. More about that later in the year. Can’t wait!!!

    I also have Kansa massage wands which are made from Bronze and they draw out acid from the body and create healing. I am experimenting with them first on myself as they make the skin temporarily black in the process.

    In the meantime I have worked on a new treatment which is a combination of Aromatherapy Massage, Reflexology, Crystal Healing, Reiki and Sound Healing. I thought now what am I going to call it? Aromacrysreikoundexology? But that would be silly and unpronounceable.... So enter Zen Restoration. 75 minutes of pure chill out and healing £45 this month.

    Have a lovely month and look forward to seeing you.

  • January Newsletter

    At the beginning of the New Year, our thoughts often turn to letting go of the old, making new plans, and forming New Year’s resolutions. The New Year is our chance to reinvent ourselves, to take stock of what we have experienced over the past year and what we hope to welcome in as the seasons turn. Each year, with its incredible changes in the political climate, the economy, and encroaching environmental problems, turning within and finding our personal spiritual sustenance becomes all the more important, necessary even, to maintain a balanced and positive outlook as things, materially, may be crashing down around us. One of the best ways to begin our new year, a new project or plan or even one new day is by setting a clear intention. By taking time to do this very simple act, we can start to reprogram our entire lives with a positive outlook and clarity. As we move through life, often at a hectic pace, we may forget to stop for a moment and be quiet or still. To breathe even, really breathe, let alone set intentions. This is very important to begin cultivating in our life, in order to start accessing that stillness within. Setting aside a mere five minutes a day to simply breathe and be still is the first step to make before setting our intention. Choose a time in the morning or evening when you can be quiet for a few minutes to concentrate on your breath and then set your intention for the day or week or month. Make a habit of this, write your intention down and put it up where you can see it, allow it to become your mantra and then watch how it affects your life positively.

    If your mind does not feel clear then toxins within the body and nervous system are most likely the culprit. Starting a detox program is the best way first and foremost. Here are some suggestions.

    1) Chuck out the remaining chocolates.

    2) A day of smoothies or fruit veg only.

    3) Brush your entire body with a stiff brush to stimulate circulation

    4) Take a good bath soak in Epsom, Pink Himalayan or Dead sea salts

    5) Drink only water with a slice of lemon all day

    I can help with the following treats on special offer.

    Holistic Facial and Mini Back Massage - using pure essential oils to care for the skin and awaken the senses. Using specialist massage techniques to the face and scalp to stimulate and oxygenate, whilst bringing mind and body balance combined with a 20 minute hot stone back massage - £48

    GlycoRadiance AHA Treatment, As an alternative to microdermabrasion, this 40% glycolic acid treatment deeply exfoliates and clarifies the skin. It gently removes dead skin cells, stimulates cell renewal and restores luminosity and radiance to the skin. It also softens scar tissue and is therefore recommended for post acne scaring, hyper pigmentation and chloasma conditions - £36

    Radio Frequency facial – RF is one of the safest, least invasive and yet most effective anti-ageing treatment available to people of all skin colours. In our early 20’s we have plenty of collagen in our skin. However, with age our collagen production decreases, so that by the time we reach our mid 40’s it is barely in production and due to the lack of collagen we notice our skin loses elasticity, sags and forms lines and wrinkles. Using the very latest SkinFirst Radio Frequency equipment A single treatment can stimulate and declog the skin at the beginning of the year! - £70

    Detox the mind as well as calming the body with Reiki - Reiki is a tremendously powerful, natural and safe form of healing which can help with problems of any kind, physical, emotional or mental, and often succeeds where other treatments have failed. It is a natural form of hands on healing which is deeply relaxing and has a similar effect on the body and mind as meditation. The aim is to restore the natural energy balance of the body and mind. Take an hour and half for the price of an hour £35

    Full body massage with detox oil blend with 30 minutes of Reiki for true mind body balance £50

    Lastly if you have had a cold or the flu and are still feeling congested. Why not try a Hopi ear candle treatment. The hollow tubes are impregnated with a range of herbs to soothe and clear the head, nose, ears and throat. The treatment is completed with a facial, sinus and ear massage – I have also added in a mini Reflexology treatment too! £42

  • November newsletter

    November - The name comes from the Roman word 'novem' meaning nine, because it was the ninth month in their Roman calendar. Few people find November pleasant. The Anglo-Saxons called November 'Wind monath', because it was the time when the cold winds began to blow. They also called it 'Blod monath', because it was the time when cattle were slaughtered for winter food. The poet T.S. Elliot called it 'Sombre November'. Sir Walter Scott, in his long poem Marmion, wrote in 1808: November's sky is chill and drear, November's leaf is red and sear (withered)

    No sun - no moon!

    No morn - no noon -

    No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.

    No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,

    No comfortable feel in any member -

    No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,

    No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -

    November!

    Thomas Hood

    The first week of November has always been a time of festivals and celebrations marking the end of the harvest and beginning of Winter.

    Stillness – the earth is covered in a quilt of leaves. All is quiet at the end of the cycle. A time for deep rest and peace.

    Hopefully you are not feeling sombre. But if you are here are some lovely ways to chill out, rest and restore.
