Acupressure Therapy

Acupressure therapy uses the same pressure points and meridians as in acupuncture but without needles. Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure.

When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body’s life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, detoxify the body and tone tired or tense muscles.

Acupuncture enhances body functions and healing by targeting specific points with thin needles, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine’s yin-yang balance concept. Qi, the energy flowing through meridians, maintains health, but blockages can cause pain and illness.

Acupuncture restores qi flow, improving physiological systems. This therapy alleviates pain, enhances sleep, digestion, and overall well-being by stimulating the body’s systems. It taps into the body’s natural healing response to restore balance and optimize health.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is a gentle healing art using massage and scented essential oils derived from aromatic plants and trees to relieve physical and psychological discomfort and to promote health of body and serenity of mind. It is found to be most efficient when used to heal the whole person and not only a physical condition. It looks into the causes and the prevention of illness.

Health problems are looked at in the context of a person”s ”whole” life – mind, body and spirit need to be in a state of equilibrium with each other. If one aspect becomes unbalanced, it can lead to physical or emotional illness. In many cases emotional disharmony can eventually manifest as physical illness, Aromatherapy can help to redress the balance.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Intuitive Thai Massage

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient.

In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being. Our therapists are dedicated to practising this ancient holistic therapy in a sensitive and intuitive way. Through a unique combination of gentle stretching and palm and thumb pressure to activate the energy lines, tension is released from the body and mind, creating a sense of balance and well-being.

The therapist will then use a range of Eastern & Western release techniques to mobilise the body which may include fascial release, Tuina massage, fire cupping, Amno Fu, and cranial balancing.

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.

Emily Morrison is the one who has longed to experience the world’s wonders with her entire body. To root like Redwood, to sense her heart linked to the hearts of Others, to whoop and cackle like Baboon and Crow, reach out her arms circling friends into community, and to move her entire body with the suppleness of clay and the dynamic fluidity of water. To be able to heave and cry her grief, jump boldly into love, tend gently to her fears, and skip and sing in celebration.

Her path to embodying this longing began twelve years ago, when she committed herself to becoming a professional dancer.

Upon graduation, she created and performed professionally with choreographers such as Troy Ogilvie, Janice Garrett, Alison Cook Beatty & Susan Tenney.
