This course looks at providing a modern relaxing treatment with the benefits of traditional Reflexology.  It is based on the principle of the foot being a map of the entire body and when reflex points are stimulated, the therapist is treating the whole body and not just the foot.  The benefits can help reduce stress, improve circulation, cleanse the body of toxins and revitalise energy levels. The treatment works by stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms in order to restore balance and a feeling of wellbeing.

This is one of my favourites! it is based on traditional Indian massage techniques and we only use traditional indian head/hair oils.  it involves work on the upper back, neck, shoulders, scalp and face using a variety of massage movements.  The aim is to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint mobility.  The best part of this treatment is that it revitalises the whole body, rebalancing the energy flow to the body and creates a feeling of peace and wellbeing.  A lovely treatment to offer your clients.

The main aim of Thai massage is to re-balance the flow of energy in the body using the system of 'Sen' energy lines.  These are similar to the meridian energy lines of Chinese medicine but follow the natural contours of the body.    The Thai method uses a rhythmic  movement to apply pressure to energy lines and points, together with muscle stretching and compression.  Although it is known as massage, it has more in common with Japanese Shiatsu or Chinese acupressure systems of bodywork.  The benefits are unlimited....form freeing energy blockages, facilitating relaxation, instil a feeling of wellbeing and increasing flexibility of joints.  The calming and restorative effects of the massage also work on both superficial and deeper layers of the muscles and connective tissue.
