This is a seated treatment working on the upper back, neck, shoulders, upper arms, head and face. The massage is performed through light clothing or directly onto the skin with the use of oils.
A treatment using oil will provide additional conditioning benefits to the hair and scalp. Usually coconut oil is applied but olive oil can be used instead if preferred. It is best to leave the oil in your hair overnight and wash out the following day to gain optimum conditioning from the oil. Be prepared for your hair being oily after the treatment if using oil, so its not advised before a night out.
A range of different massage pressures and rhythms are used in this treatment which can provide instant relief from tension and stress symptoms and induce a state of calm, peace and tranquillity and also promote high levels of alertness and concentration.
Indian Head Massage provides relief from aches and pains, promotes a healthy scalp and hair, and helps induce relaxation and a feeling of well-being.
Other physical and psychological benefits include:
This treatment is an ancient, non-invasive complementary therapy involving the use of ear candles and is designed to help treat conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat
During this treatment a hollow candle made from flax, honey and powdered herbs is lit and placed gently in to the opening of the ear and is held by the therapist throughout the burning process.
The candle works like a chimney and when lit forms a very gentle suction. The rising air inside the candle sets up a vibration which gently massages the structures in the ear. The ears, nose, sinuses and throat are all interconnected, so this has the effect of regulating and balancing pressure in the ears as well as the whole of the upper respiratory tract.
The gentle circulation of vapours induces a pleasant feeling of warmth. In addition to the physical benefits, this treatment brings about a deep sense of relaxation. It is combined with a facial massage to help drain the sinuses.
Ear candling benefits
Ear candling is a holistic treatment and is not designed to be a specific cure for any particular ailment. However, there are considered to be a number of healing benefits and regular treatment is thought to stimulate and heal parts of the mind and body that extend beyond the immediate surrounding of the inner ear.
Regular ear candling treatments are thought to provide beneficial relief from the following conditions:
• Excessive or compacted wax in the

Reiki is the vital life energy which flows through all living things and can be activated for the purpose of healing. Everyone has the ability to connect to their own healing energy and the Reiki energy is channelled to the patient via the therapist’s hands, activating the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Reiki can promote healing on all levels; mind, body and spirit. It can assist in healing mental/emotional problems in a hands on treatment or distantly and can also help to overcome past and future issues. Letting go of emotional and mental pain frees us of any blockages preventing our natural energy flow.
At present I am not offering this as a stand alone therapy but I can incorporate Reiki into other treatments if required. This will be agreed on during an initial consultation and prior to each treatment.
I am however a Reiki master and hope to offer attunements and workshops in the future as well as dedicated treatment sessions.
Manicures & Pedicures
Both the physical and mental health benefits of getting a manicure and pedicure are incredible. Your feet and hands will both look and feel great, your stress will go down, and your circulation will increase.
Your hands are more exposed to daily dirt and weather than any part of your body, except maybe your face. That means that they accumulate grime easily, as well as constantly create new skin cells.. Your feet are generally only exposed in the spring and summer times, but walking on them all day can create callouses and other uneven skin conditions.
A professional manicure includes a thorough cleaning and lotions designed to exfoliate your skin. Any grime will be removed, as will dead skin cells, keeping your hands smooth and reducing any appearance of wrinkles. A professional pedicure will also exfoliate your skin. This not only makes your feet more attractive, it also helps you distribute your weight more evenly across your feet, which can reduce leg and back pain after standing for long periods.
In addition to exfoliating, moisturizers and cuticle treatments are massaged into the skin in a professional manicure and pedicure. This massage action is not only incredibly relaxing, it also helps to improve blood circulation to your extremities. This can reduce pain and help your body distribute heat during cold months.
I offer a range of manicure and pedicure services from file and polish to luxury treatments to help you feel completely pampered and relaxed. If you like to have regular manicures and/or pedicures after your first full treatment you can take advantage of follow up treatments to maintain the condition of your hands feet and nails. A typical full manicure includes filing and shaping nails, cleansing/conditioning nail soak, cutical conditioning and tidying, exfolation of the hands and lower arms and a full hand and lower arm massage, this is finished off with buffing and applying a nail polish of your choice. A follow up treatment would include massage and removal and re-application of nail polish and cuticles will also be tidied if required. The process of pedicure is the same plus the treatment of any hard or dry skin. For anyone with particularly dry or hard skin I can offer a heated foot or hand mask treatment.
