Reflexology helps your body maintain its natural balance by applying gentle pressure to stimulate reflex points on the feet or hands which correspond to each part of the body.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy and works well alongside orthodox medicine. It is gentle, relaxing, yet very powerful and encourages the body to rebalance and heal.

We are all individual and respond in different ways so an initial course of treatments at weekly or fortnightly intervals may be recommended.

How can Reflexology help me?

Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.

Reflexology has been shown to be effective for:

    • Back Pain


    • Migraine


    • Infertility


    • Arthritis


    • Arthritis


    • Hormonal imbalances


    • Sports injuries


    • Digestive disorders


  • Stress-related conditions: asthma, eczema, psoriasis etc

Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.

Who can benefit from Reflexology?

Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. After you have completed a course of Reflexology treatment for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.

While many people use Reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise Reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy.

With ever increasing levels of stress, it is important people take more responsibility for their own health care needs. Reflexology helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives.

Colonic Hydrotherapy

If your body gets overloaded with toxins you can become prone to ill health. Having a Colonic treatment helps your body in removing these toxins which may assist and/or benefit many prmary and secondary health issues.

A series of colonic treatments are normally recommended - initially 2 should be considered and ideally they would be as close together as possible to enable good detoxification to be achieved.

Further Information

Colon Hydrotherapy is a warm internal bath, which cleanses the colon of accumulated toxic waste matter providing many detoxifying health benefits.

If your body gets overloaded with toxins you can become prone to ill health. Having Colonic Hydrotherapy assists your body in removing these toxins.

The health benefits of detoxifying your system in this way include:

    • Improved Metabolism


    • Greater Vitality


    • Healthier Skin & Hair

    • Improved Immune System


    • Elimination of Undigested Food


  • Exercises the Colon

A series of colonic irrigation may also help greatly in enhancing the ability to absorb many vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.

The colon, large intestine or bowel is situated in the abdomen and forms the last part of the digestive tract. An extremely important organ in its own right, it carries out a number of vital functions including the completion of the digestive process involving absorption of water soluble nutrients as well as the synthesis of certain vitamins.

The colon is a major part of the excretory system, and is responsible for eliminating food and other body wastes, as well as protecting us from infection and disease. In a normal functioning colon, all this is achieved with the help of billions of friendly bacteria which inhabit the colon and make up some 70% of the dry weight of our faecal waste.

Everything about you begins first as a thought, this then produces an action. When you change the thought, you change the action.

Hypnotherapy introduces suggestions while you're in a relaxed and receptive state. Usually only light trances are induced and you remain aware of your surroundings. The aim is to help you to gain control over mental or physical processes.

Hypnotherapy is often used to help overcome anxiety, insomnia, stress, panic attacks, phobias, addictions and as an aid to weight loss. IT can also help to treat pain, headaches and irritable bowel problems.

Further Information

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness you enter and leave naturally throughout the day. It feels very much like day dreaming - the state between sleeping and waking. During these periods you are in a relaxed state and more open to suggestion. Your relaxation gives you access to your subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy makes use of this natural ability by inducing this "hypnotic" state to enable healing and/or changes to be made on a subconscious level.

    • Have you ever been so focused on a movie that you haven't heard someone call your name?


    • Have you ever driven somewhere and not remembered the journey on arrival?


  • Have you ever watched tv and stared at the screen not really paying attention?

These are all examples of being in a hypnotic state.

Confidence building

    • Hypnosis works in many ways to build self - confidence.


    • Uncovers the reasons for the absence of self - confidence


    • Gives you confidence building techniques


    • Develops positive thinking


    • Sets goals for the future and works on ways to achieve them


  • Develops relaxation techniques to help overcome stressful situations.

Reiki is an ancient healing technique involving the gentle laying of hands on, or above, various positions on the body whilst the recipient remains fully clothed.

When there is an energy imbalance in the body there is the potential for illness. Reiki energy balances and harmonises these areas encouraging the body to heal itself. Reiki works wherever it is needed, whether the problem is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and so has the potential to help many health issues.

Reiki also provides comfort during times of grief and serious illness.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases, emotional issues, fears, phobias and habits.

Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, you stimulate energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them. The process is easy to memorise and is portable so you can take it anywhere.

The basics of EFT may be learnt in 1 or 2 therapy sessions with the help of one of our health therapists.
