Reiki (inc. Chakra balancing + crystal healing)
According to ancient sages, there are seven major chakras that run down your spinal column. These chakras monitor the energy that pulses through your body. These chakra points are located at the top of your head, the centre of your forehead, your throat, your heart, your upper abdomen, your lower abdomen, and your pelvis.
When your chakras are operating correctly, you feel well. Unfortunately, negative emotions, stress, and illness can block your chakra centres, creating lethargy and unhappiness. To prevent this from happening, you need a reliable method to balance your chakras. Fortunately, many people have found that, by using crystals that correspond to the colour of the chakras, blockages are removed and amazing boosts of energy occur.
To the trained Reflexologist the whole of the body is mirrored in the soles of the feet, and there are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and body part. By stimulating these reflexes it is possible to detect and treat many health problems in a natural non-invasive way.
A Reflexology treatment is, therefore, far more than just a foot massage. It can induce a state of relaxation, improve energy flow and blood supply, and help to restore equilibrium throughout the body.
Aura imaging Photography
Aura imaging Photography produces a full-spectrum colour print and a full body perimeter electro-field image.(full body chakra image) These colourful luminous formations can easily be recorded.
The sensors used (on a hand sensor pad) measure the subject's "electromagnetic field", based on the Ayurvedic (acupressure points on the hand) system of meridians. These points correlate to different points in the physical and auric bodies.
The machine codes these energy readings into frequencies (which correspond to certain colours) and processes the photograph, a computer sorts the information and prints the Aura photograph and full body chakra image.
This technology represented a major step in biofeedback imaging. Aura photography can show changes and improvements in the energy field with 'before' and 'after' photo's taken during a course of Homeopathy or Reflexology, massage or counselling. It is especially useful during any type of energy work as you are able to see the changes being made and the balance of the chakra's before and after, a bit like an x-ray of the aura! Aura photography is very effective for personal growth and self discovery, giving you a personal printout, your own personal energy map. It not only shows your emotions, but your energy blocks. Physical problems are also reflected in the energy field.

Numerology uses numbers as a key to human behaviour. Numerology is not a complete science it is just s branch of the predictive sciences.

In Vedic numerology we use 3 basic concepts;
1) Psychic no= representing self image
2) Destiny no= pertaining to karma and how others perceive you
3) Name no= Social/ professional life.
Together these three numbers reveal info about your temperament, intelligence, sexuality, finances and health.

An aromatherapy massage combines the benefits of massage therapy with the use of essential oils. Massage is a ‘hands-on’ therapy and there are many variations, ranging from a gentle stoking and kneading of muscles to firmer, deeper, manual techniques.
Essence oils are easily penetrated into the skin due to their high concentration. As these essences are evaporated they are also inhaled via the millions of sensitive cells in the nasal passage.
These cells send messages to the brain and therefore enhance both physical and psychological well being. They can have many different effects on the mind, body and spirit, and make an aromatherapy massage an uplifting experience.
