During my maternity reflexology treatment I was made to feel relaxed and calm. I felt very positive and went into labour the next day. I will definately be trying it again.
Nina, ward clerk, age 25
Having suffered with muscular pain in the shoulder area I found that following Swedish massage I felt relaxed and experienced immediate relief from the sypmtoms which, after 3-4 treatments have now totally gone. My lower back and sciatic pain subsided after two reflexology treatments which also left me with a general feeling of wellbeing, both mentally and physically.
Mark, financial advisor, age 45
Since regularly having reflexolgy I feel relaxed with raised energy levels and have noticeable relief from the pain and stiffness in my neck, shoulders, arm and feet. I am now able to go dancing four times a week and walk comfortably in heels.
Christine, retired, age 60
I have suffered from migraines for many years and I was sceptical at first as to whether reflexology would help. I now feel there has been a definite improvement. My hot stones treatment was great and very relaxing. I felt wonderful and didn't want it to stop.

Aloe Vera Products
The aloe vera plant resembles a cactus plant but is actually a member of the Lily family. When mature, the inner gel is harvested, preserved and bottled to produce a product which is as close to the natural inner plant juice as is possible.
Aloe vera gel contains at least 75 known ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, natural pain killers, antibacterial, fungal and viral properties. It can be taken internally for its nutritional, anti-inflammatory and immune balancing effect or combined with other ingredients to produce topical creams and lotions to nourish and improve the condition of the skin.

The roots of acupressure lie in Tradition Chinese Medicine where acupuncture points are stimulated using pressure instead of needles. The Chinese believe that energy which they refer to as ‘Chi’, flows through the body along channels known as meridians and that the maintenance of health is directly related to the flow of ‘Chi’. If the energy becomes imbalanced; deficient, excessive or stagnant in anyway, then illness or discomfort may ensue. Each meridian is connected to and related to a specific organ from which it takes its name, for example the liver or lung. Pressure is applied to acupoints near the surface of the body with the intention of restoring the flow of energy within the body.
A very revitalising and toning treatment which relaxes tense muscles, increases blood circulation and promotes a sense of wellbeing. The treatment is performed through light clothing and massage and stretching techniques are also used to enhance the therapeutic outcome. Seated acupressure can be performed on site providing relief from pain and tension in the back, shoulders, head and neck.
Advanced Massage Techniques
Advanced massage techniques may be incorporated into any complementary therapy to enhance the therapeutic benefits of the treatment.
Soft Tissue Release
A quick and effective technique which releases localised areas of muscle tension by combining pressure and stretching. Local areas of tight and adhered muscle fibres are locked and the tissue stretched away from the point.
Myofascial Trigger Points
By applying pressure directly on an area of hardened muscle fibres, pain and muscle tone are reduced. This is followed by passive or active stretches which provide relief.
