Dynamic Yoga Workshops

Dynamic yoga workshops offer a more in depth look at the softening effects of yoga posture practise, with a longer than average class time, a deeper relaxation and time for sitting at the end for pranayama in stillness. Herbal tea follows... Workshops are suitable for anyone. With a maximum of five participants, I offer a quiet and gentle retreat away from the daily anxiety, stresses and strains, into a deeper understanding of your body and it's ability to quieten as you release the breath and allow the mind to let go. Dynamic yoga workshops are similar in instruction to the bi-weekly dynamic yoga classes taught at Maxwell Park Community ...

Reflexology

What is Reflexology? You may have heard people talking about this complementary therapy, but actually are unsure what is reflexology. I will attempt to describe it for you here. Reflexology is a special kind of massage on the feet, hands or face. Points and areas are pressed and gently held or 'finger-walked' to balance and soothe the body. This brings about a deep state of relaxation and encourages homoeostasis. I work with a gentle, but not light, pressure, which can also vary as I move around the feet. Over 7000 nerve endings are in the feet alone. Based on the principle that these nerve endings all come from (and relate to) different ...

Hot Stone Reflexology

 As you would expect, hot stone reflexology utilises the stones to bring warmth and a touch of luxury to your reflexology treatment. Stones are pre-warmed in my special hot stones bag, and the larger ones are placed behind your knees and ankles, smaller ones placed between the toes as I carry out your truly relaxing reflexology with medium sized stones. If you're really feeling the chill, stones may be wrapped and placed behind the shoulders to help you relax. This type of reflexology is perfect as a gift to a loved one who you have no idea what to buy for, or as a gift to yourself when you have been on your feet all week and need some extreme ...

Hand reflexology

Hand reflexology is decadent treatment for the hands. Book yourself or a friend this blissful hand treatment, and feel all your stresses melting away with the relaxing power of reflexology. There is something very special about treating the hands; it becomes a more intimate, supportive treatment. Hand reflexology takes care of the hands, gently easing away tensions whilst moisturising dry or cracked skin. There may be times when it's inappropriate to have a foot treatment. Maybe you feel too ticklish? (You may be surprised that your feet are not so ticklish with reflexology). Perhaps you have a fungal infection on the feet, or a verruca? (If you're ...

Ear candling

Ear candling is a wonderfully soothing therapy, which works using hollow candles made from natural products such as bees wax, honey and herbs. I use traditional Hopi™ earcandles by Biosun which are premium quality and use organic untreated cotton. As you relax, I check the positioning of the candle for comfort, then remove it, light it and re-insert into the ear canal just a few millimetres. This allows for a chimney effect of drawing warm air down into the ear. It is a very pleasant feeling and can be helpful for excessive earwax, clogged ears, ‘glue ear’, ear ache, snoring, sinusitis, headaches, migraines, sore throats, irritation in the ...
