The Bowen Technique is one of the most versatile and effective therapeutic treatments available today. Its ability to re-align and balance the body means it is effective for most conditions. A treatment consists of a series of gentle moves on skin or through light clothing, with the client usually lying on a bed or treatment couch, although it is possible to be treated seated. A session usually lasts up to an hour and frequently results in a deep sense of relaxation, allowing the body to recharge and balance itself.

  • It may help many conditions, from sports injuries to long standing complaints
  • There is no vigorous manipulation
  • It’s gentle and stimulating
  • It may improve mobility
  • It may improve circulation and lymphatic drainage

Fertility - Alternative Treatment

Did you know that reflexology can be used to help with fertility problems?

By stimulating the parts of the feet relating to the reproductive organs and endocrine glands, it is possible to promote greater health and balance in these areas. It can help couples who have been otherwise unable to conceive. I practice natural fertility treatments for both men and women. As recent studies have shown that sub-fertility is affecting both men and women in equal numbers. I offer practical and down to earth information on infertility, conception and pregnancy. I support my clients from infertility to fertility and for the duration of their pregnancy aiding in their care. Reflexology has been known to aid in certain conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, irregular periods or ovulation and stress related fertility issues to name but a few.

Hopi Ear Candling
€50
Hopi Ear Candling

Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage like effect on the eardrum. It is soothing and helpful for ear ache, headache, ear noise, glue ear, sinusitis and migraines to name but a few.

We add in a face and neck massage to aid in the stimulation of the upper lymphatics to encourage drainage and to enhance your relaxation.

What a typical Treatment Session entails

You are asked to lie comfortably and listen to relaxing music. The candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit. I hold it in a vertical position, my hands keeping the candle steady and preventing any ash falling on to you. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and a warm comfortable feeling. As the candle burns down, the residue ash (if it falls) will just turn to dust. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a few moments before turning over to treat the other ear. Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during treatment.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage is a specialised massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscles. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as adhesions).

Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied along or across the muscles. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas, such as the back, or the back of the legs.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is part of the Ayurvedic system. Ayurveda, the “Science of Life” is an ancient Indian medical system, believed by many to be the oldest medical system in the world. It emphasizes the uniqueness of the individual, aiming to restore balance and inner harmony to mind, body and spirit, improving health and prolonging life. Ayuveda recommends the use of massage, mainly to improve blood circulation and expel toxins from the body.

Indian women traditionally practiced head massage as part of their grooming, initially limiting it to the head and hair, with the objective of keeping hair in beautiful condition. Barbers also practiced, combining haircuts with “champi” (head massage). The tradition was brought to the west by Narendra Mehta, a blind therapist who grew up in India and trained in England as a physiotherapist in the 1970s. Disappointed that massage in England did not extend to the head, he formalized techniques for head massage to include the neck, shoulders and upper arms as well as the head, combining massage with Ayurvedic elements of energy points or charkas, creating a therapy he called Indian Champissage. It is based on acupressure massage, and its benefits are felt throughout the body. The upper arms, shoulders, neck, head and face are massaged to promote relaxation and relieve tension.

Indian Head Massage is excellent for treating both physical and mental ailments:

  1. By relaxing muscle and nerve fibres, it relieves tension, pain and fatigue.
  2. It increases oxygen supply to the brain, aiding clarity of thought and concentration and relieving mental strain.
  3. It stimulates endorphin release, helping natural pain relief and increasing feelings of well-being.
  4. The sympathetic nervous system is calmed, slowing the heart rate and reducing stress.
  5. The parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated, helping one to relax and promoting restful sleep.

Lomi Lomi Massage

What is it?

Originating in Polynesia, Lomi Lomi Massage (also known as Aloha or Kahuna massage) is a complete healing system which aims to restore harmony and balance within the body, mind and spirit.

The word Lomi means to massage; Lomi Lomi means to massage with intention. This is one of the most important principles behind this beautiful bodywork as the practitioner always works on the body with love, nurturing and healing in mind. Hawaiians have always had a deep connection with nature, in particular with the ocean, and this connection is echoed in Lomi Lomi as the practitioner performs long, continuous, sweeping strokes over the body reminiscent of the ebb and flow of the ocean’s waves. These strokes, performed fluidly and rhythmically with both the hands and forearms, work gently and deeply into the muscles releasing tension, as well as on the blood and lymphatic systems making it a powerful, detoxifying massage. They are also designed to help the body let go of old memories, beliefs and behavioural patterns which, in Hawaiian culture, are believed to be stored in every cell of our bodies. These ideas and thoughts can prevent us from living our lives to their true potential and are capable of causing just as much stress and strain on the body as muscle tension.

Hawaiians perceive health in terms of energy flow. If there is a blockage obstructing the natural flow of energy then pain, illness or disease may result.Lomi Lomi Massage uses intuitive movement, breath work, focused attention and rhythm to release energy blockages and physical tension to bring about a state of harmony and deep relaxation.

What to expect from a treatment

A brief consultation will be carried out to establish if there are any contraindications to the treatment and then the therapist will leave you to undress. There will be a couple of minutes of chanting music whilst both the client and practitioner set their intention

Osteopath Consultation

Stresses and strains can accumulate over time and symptoms may begin somewhat insidiously. The Osteopath works with structural imbalances that are present in the body to restore a state of physical balance. Patients often report improvement in many areas of their health.

Most people associate osteopathy with back and spinal care for which it can prove to be an effective solution for helping with associated pain. Mechanical problems in the structure of the body can not only lead to aches or pains in the joints, tissues, muscles etc. but it can also lead to disturbances in the internal organs and the way they work. Irregular function may impair blood circulation or lymphatic drainage, and disrupt the nerve supply to any part of the body, thus having a detrimental effect on health.

Osteopaths use a wide range of “hands on” techniques to identify, diagnose and treat dysfunction in the body in order to restore the body’s structure and function to a state of balance so that the healing process can be accelerated, thereby improving vitality and general health.

Osteopathy does far more than care for back pain and postural irregularities. It also deals with a wide array of issues such as:

  • migraines
  • headaches
  • digestive problems
  • period problems
  • respiratory problems
  • vulnerability to infections due to a depleted immune system

It has a calming affect on the nervous system and can help with fatigue, mood swings or depression, disturbed sleep. It can help people resolve emotional issues such as anger, grief, depression.

Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice that originated in China thousands of years ago. In western medicine, the goal is often to diagnose disease and treat it specifically; in acupuncture, the goal is to strengthen the entire mind and body, supporting our inherent resilience and resistance to disease.

According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy (Qi, pronounced ‘chee’) moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels (meridians) beneath the skin that connect the interior and exterior of the body, and the internal systems to each other.

Qi consists of equal and opposite qualities – Yin and Yang. When Qi becomes blocked or disrupted, illness can result. Acupuncture aims to bring all systems into balance by inserting fine needles into the meridians. It can also be used to complement conventional medicine.

What can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture has been used to treat a range of conditions including:

*       Anxiety and depression.

*       Arthritis and rheumatism.

*       Asthma.

*       High blood pressure.

*       Menstrual cramps.

*       Skin problems.

*       Pain relief in childbirth.

*       Addiction – smoking, alcohol and drugs.

What happens during an acupuncture session?

If it is your first session, the acupuncturist will assess your general health to ensure that you receive the most effective treatment. They may enquire about your current symptoms, treatment you have received so far, medical history, your close family’s medical history, diet, digestive system, sleeping patterns and emotional state.

Homeopath Consultation

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

Like with like

Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.

Benefits of Homeopathy

  • Homeopathy is safe, gentle and effective
    Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own innate healing ability. Although gentle the results can be rapid, powerful and long lasting.
  • Homeopathy can be used by everyone
    Children, teenagers and adults – it can even be safely used by pregnant and nursing mothers, sensitive patients, babies and the elderly.
  • Remedies are non addictive with no harmful side-effects
    A special preparation process called potentisation refines the remedies to remove any toxic side effects.
  • Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine
    It is always advisable to let your GP know about any treatment.
