Raindrop Therapy

This technique of massage was first brought to the UK in 2000 and it has assisted many people since then to heal from all manner of conditions, both physical and emotional Raindrop Technique combines the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of massage and feather stroke massage in the application of essential oils to the spine and feet of the body. This use of the specific oils provides a revolutionary means of bringing balance and harmony to the body - physically, mentally, and emotionally. The oils used in the technique are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. They aid the back and spine in detoxification.

  1. Reduce Stress and Anxiety -  The oils help one to relax during the massage/technique. It also helps balance emotions and release negative emotions. Clients generally report a lighter feeling and less stressed.
  2. Reduces Inflammation in the Body - Inflammation is dangerous to the body and many things contribute to this. Several of the oils in the technique fight inflammation.
  3. Re-aligns the Spine in a Non-Invasive Manner - Toxins along the spine contribute to problems and can cause spinal diseases such as scoliosis. Many of the oils are anti-bacterial and anti-viral.
  4. Relax Muscles - Muscles will benefit from the oils that help with sore muscles, along with the specific massage techniques used.
  5. Fight Viruses and Bacteria along the Spine - Toxins stay dormant and hibernate along the spinal column until our immune system weakens and disease sets in. Think…shingles. It also improves immune system function and overall health.
  6. Detox the Body  - The oils cleanse cellular receptor sites and boost the lymphatic system detox of the body.

Crystal Healing

Crystal therapy is a gentle non-invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to harmonize the mind, body, emotions and spirit, helping to increase our feeling of well-being, neutralize negativity, lift depression and to help us to become integrated, whole beings.

Crystals absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable out of balance body to find its natural energetic rhythm once again. The appropriate crystals can be placed on the seven main chakras, which look like different coloured spinning wheels of subtle energy, running up the centre of the torso. These link the subtle energy fields of our aura with our emotions, glands, organs, physical body parts and subtle and physical circulatory flows.

The benefits of experiencing Crystal Healing are:

  • Reduced stress levels
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved physical and emotional well being
  • Improved mental clarity
  • Improved sleeping patterns

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a treatment based on old Ayurvedic techniques involving work on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. A variety of massage movements are used to relieve accumulated tension, stimulate circulation and restore joint movement. Indian Head Massage is used to help reduce stress and fatigue, increase mental clarity, and relax and rejuvenate the receiver.

A treatment will last between 30 - 45 minutes.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy combines the medicinal properties of plants with the healing benefits of massage. Essential oils are derived from various plants and herbs and are added in small amounts to carrier oils. The scents which are released, act on the limbic and emotional centres of the brain. The effects of aromatherapy include relaxation and invigoration. The oils are also beneficial for the skin.

The aromatherapist selects the appropriate oils for each individual’s treatment session.

Rose Quartz Facial

The Rose Quartz Facial is a treatment of the purest energies for mind, body and soul.  I use rose essential oil, rosehip oil and rosewater to nourish the skin.  I then combine facial massage with rose quartz crystal wands to stimulate cell renewal, heal and re-energise the skin while promoting a feeling of wellbeing.   

The Rose Quartz Facial includes: 

  • Placing of rose quartz crystals
  • Cleanse using a mild cleanser
  • Toning with rose water
  • Very gentle exfoliation
  • Rose mask
  • Chakra balance during mask application
  • Facial massage using pure rose hip oil, rose essential oil and rose quartz crystal massage wands to refresh and energise.

The benefits of Rose Quartz facial include: 

  • Increased circulation
  • Skin is hydrated
  • Rose Quartz is a nurturing stone and can balance the body leaving the client feeling complete, balanced and relaxed.
  • Rose Quartz is associated with the heart; it can draw energy in, heal and encourage compassion.

Health Kinesiology

Health kinesiology is a complementary therapy renowned for its ability to identify and correct energetic imbalances. Your body has an innate ability to heal itself in optimised and balanced conditions.  Past or present emotions and memories stored as negative molecules in your physical body, past accidents, traumas, toxins, etc. can hinder this ability.  When something is weighing you down emotionally, mentally or physically, it is a sign of your energy flows, such as meridians, being out of balance.  These accumulated imbalanced energies do not release themselves naturally.

Health Kinesiology is a successful complementary therapy that helps you to recover or optimise your overall well-being.  Health kinesiologists use muscle testing to identify personalised healing solutions unique to only you. It treats the person as a whole, through muscle testing accessing your subconscious mind, where the key to your health is held.  It is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and health.

Rarely do people feel completely balanced, and so whatever the reason that is making you think about having HK, I will be able to tune into your body’s inner wisdom [by muscle monitoring] and hopefully reveal the specialist techniques and lifestyle changes that will help return your BioEnergy system to a state of balance and harmony. HK looks at all the facets – asking deeply what made the BioEnergetic imbalances occur, remain or increase, and what needs to be done to release them.

Health Kinesiology is one of those things that you have to try for yourself in order to know how it can help you to experience a feeling of wellbeing


Originating from Chinese, Japanese, Egyptian and Indian cultures, reflexology is an ancient treatment that has been used effectively for thousands of years.

Specialised massage techniques are applied through the thumb and fingers of the therapist to specific reflex zones in the feet believed to correspond to different areas of the body. This stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself, improving both physical and emotional wellbeing.

Reflexology is a detoxifying and balancing treatment that provides an overall boost to the immune system. These stimulating massage techniques are followed by a deeply soothing massage with a choice of tailored aromatherapy oils to suit your individual needs.


Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy and is a gentle form of hands on healing.

The therapist acts as a neutral channel for Reiki energy to pass through to the client. Reiki energy goes to where it is needed and works by supporting your body's natural healing process. It acts on all levels of an individual and can therefore help physically, mentally, emotionally or energetically. It is a gentle, non-invasive therapy, which means that even painful or immobile parts of the body can be treated.

Reiki is a complimentary therapy that works well alongside conventional medicine as well as other therapies.

Thermoauricular Therapy

This ancient eastern therapy comes from the Indian system of Ayurveda, a natural therapy that takes into account body, mind and spirit. It is a seated massage that works specifically on the neck, face, scalp, head, upper back and shoulders. As we adapt all of our treatments to suit your specific needs we can also incorporate massage to the arms and hands.

This treatment can be applied with or without massage oils making it a versatile and beneficial treatment to be applied in the workplace. It aids relaxation and the relief of stress and muscular tension, it also stimulates circulation in the upper back, shoulders, neck, face and head. Addressing the balance and flow of your energy this reduces the effects of stress and tension in the whole

Crystal Wand Massage

Crystal Wand Massage Therapy provides a gentle and deeply relaxing massage experience. Beautiful handmade Indian Crystal Wands made of clear quartz, amethyst or rose quartz are warmed on a cherry stone pillow and then incorporated into massage to calm and relax the mind, body and spirit.

Indian Crystal Wands have three purposes:-

Crystal wands are used to promote self-healing and a feeling of wellbeing, the wands are a ball of crystal linked to a crystal point and in expert hands become an extension of the therapists own hands whilst massaging the body and clearing energy pathways. A journey to relaxation that all massage lovers should take.
