Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy works on the soft tissues and joints of the body to decrease pain and improve flexibility, decrease scar tissue, reduce knots and release trigger points. Massage stimulates the circulatory system, reduces the harmful effects of stress on your body, helps to eliminate toxins, and can aid in overall health. Massage is a form of preventative and proactive health care safe for all age groups. 

 

People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, manage headaches or promote overall health and wellness. Whatever your reason I will work with you to create a treatment plan that will address your personal health care goals and when these change, so will your treatment. 

Osteopathy

Reiki

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine known as natural energy healing. Reiki
practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a universal energy is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki promotes a feeling of relaxation and is intended to help the body activate its natural healing abilities.  People who receive Reiki describe it as intensely relaxing.
