Modalities

Acupressure

This clothed, Traditional Chinese Medicine modality utilizes the same energy meridians as that of acupuncture, however without the use of needles. 

Each meridian contains pressure points, that when stimulated, open pathways for ease of energy (Qi) flow. These pressure points are stimulated by the practitioners finger pressure, releasing the need for needles.

Sometimes we experience pain in very localized areas for seemingly no reason. These are  pressure points that are either in need of stimulating or releasing stuck, blocked or excessive energy.


 Great for:  Supports harmony and misalignments for the physical, spiritual and mental body.

Clinical Reflexology

Reflexology is more than 'just a foot rub', it utilizes specific maps on the feet, hands and ears. These maps correspond to areas and systems in our body. By applying pressure and stimulation to these areas we active the nervous system to send 'messages' to the corresponding area. Similar premise to that of medication targeting specific systems or pain responses in our body.

 Contrary to popular belief it does not have to inflect pain, although generally the deeper the pressure the more stimulating the effect, which in some cases not the desired approach.


Great for: Stress and tension relief, improved sleep, hormone balancing and structural misalignments.

Lymphatic Massage

Our lymphatic system is responsible for waste products elimination. 

If this is not working at full function we can feel sluggish, fatigued and experience edema - swelling. The circulatory system relies on the heart to pump blood around our body, the lymph system instead, relies on our  physical movement to shunt lymph through vessels and ducts. (Just as squeezing a toothpaste tube, bending and moving our limbs creates a similar effect). Light pressure massage enables 'opening'  of the lymph ducts &  vessels, clearing the  passage and allowing  waste products and toxins to be released from our body.

.

Great for: Oncology edema, facial relaxation,  limited mobility and sluggish systems.

Table Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a form of clothed  Japanese massage in which the energy lines known as meridians are stimulated.

Activation of these meridian lines is carried out by a blend of pressure, rolling, gentle stretching, rocking and small rotations.

Usually carried out on the floor, table shiatsu gives a change to the norm and allows just as deep a session, getting in to tricky areas by holding movements and positions

Clients have stated that it feels just as effective as a deep tissue massage without the intensity of pressure.
