What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body.
A systematic massage of the feet stimulates a reflex action in the corresponding part of the body which is thought to rebalance energy flow.
During a typical reflexology session performed on the feet, a detailed medical history will be taken and the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks and to sit in a comfortable chair or couch. The precise reflexology massage movements will be applied with an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers.
The treatment usually promotes a profound sense of relaxation and is suitable for all ages.It works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the systematic external use of essential oils in holistic treatments to improve physical and emotional well-being.
Essential oils, extracted from plants, possess distinctive therapeutic properties which can be utilised to improve health and well-being.
These natural plant oils are the aromatic volatile liquids that occur naturally in flowers, fruits, seeds, roots, resin and wood, each with their own unique properties. These pure essences can be applied in a variety of ways mostly through massage, in a base oil, in baths and by inhalation. Aromatherapy is an effective treatment for stress-related problems and a variety of chronic conditions.
In a typical aromatherapy session Sharon will ask detailed questions about your medical history, general health and lifestyle. Essential oils will then be blended especially to suit your needs. The client will be requested to remove clothing from the area to be massaged and to lay on a comfortable couch or to sit in a comfortable chair.
This soothing, balancing treatment usually creates a sense of deep relaxation and peacefulness and may produce a positive physiological and psychological effect.
