Hello my name is Gail Lucas (MFHT). I am a fully qualified and insured complementary therapist, I work out of my therapy room in Castle Gresley Swadlincote as well as offering a mobile service to people who are unable to travel.

An aromatherapy massage is a wonderful, gentle yet powerful and relaxing full body treatment or you may opt for a shorter massage routine. Every aromatherapy essential oil (and carrier oil) has its own therapeutic properties. I offer a bespoke service whereby I create a personalised blend to suit your own needs based upon intuition and your answers given during the consultation. Personalised products can be purchased for continued use at home. Or if you prefer you can chose a pre- blended oil. During a treatment, Essential oils are gently massaged onto your skin, releasing stress and increasing your sense of well-being. A full body treatment including facial aromatherapy massage can last from 80 to 120 minutes.
A massage can give you many therapeutic effects from helping you to relax and de-stress, improving your posture or range of movement, alleviate pain, encourage the body to repair and heal itself. The therapist will take your needs into account, to ensure that you are receive a treatment that is right for you, whether you want a massage to relax and de-stress or if you wish to have a more vigorous massage to ease muscle tension. The oils chosen will also have their own therapeutic effects to further enhance the effects of your treatment and suitable for your skin type.
Natural Facial and Body Scrub or Body Polish
Natural Facial and Body Scrub or Body Polish are made using all natural ingredients. Fresh and organic where possible and adding mineral ingredients where necessary. The ingredients are chosen and mixed for you based upon your skin type. These treatments can be very relaxing as you lie back and enjoy your skin being cleansed, exfoliated and massaged leaving your skin feeling amazing.
Ear Candling, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy or Hopi Ear Candling. It is a soothing gentle, non-invasive treatment which is effective for ear nose and throat problems, such as headaches, migraines, sinusitis, colds, hay fever, earache, tinnitus, stress and relieving pressure build up from flying or diving.
A lit candle is placed in your ear canal allowing its vibration to gently massage your auditory canal and ear drum. The candle acts like a chimney drawing out any impurities and aiding the removal of wax. You may feel a pleasant warm feeling and hear some crackling sounds during the treatment. A gentle lymph & sinus drainage facial massage is included to stimulate flow and increase blood circulation.
If you wish this treatment could be combined with an Aromatherapy Facial or Natural Facial which will further enhance the treatment.
Ear Candling is not just for adults as it is suitable for children who are able to lie still during a treatment. It is suggested that you have a treatment once a month for maintenance purposes. However, if you are suffering from blocked, congested sinuses or tinnitus, much more frequent treatments can be carried out until the condition stabilises. If you believe multiple treatments are required, please discuss before commencing your treatment so that all available options can be considered.
Please note: this treatment is not suitable for anyone with a perforated eardrum, grommets, following recent ear surgery, ear infections or any inflammation present.

Crystal Therapy has been around for thousands of years. Each crystal has it's own properties, which transmit energy to help rebalance the body's energy system Chakra’s). The Crystals used during your treatment will be chosen specifically to meet your needs. The crystals will be placed on and around your body where their energy will work with your own, to restore balance whether it be a mental, emotional imbalance or a physical imbalance.

Reiki is a method of channelling Universal Energy to heal. During a treatment, the recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is usually no massage or manipulation.
Everyone experiences Reiki differently and you may/may not feel sensations during a treatment such as heat, icy cold, tingling, seeing colours or feeling a range of emotions. These sensations are perfectly normal. It is also okay not to feel any sensations, as they do not reflect the effectiveness of a treatment.
It can help improve general health and well-being, reduces stress and anxiety, releasing blocked energy allowing the body to heal itself.
Reiki Modalities which I practice and am attuned to, the majority I am at master level with, which means I can teach you to work with these energies too, if you wish to learn. - Usui, Siekem/Sekhem, Faery Realms, Unicorn, I have also been attuned to various other energies which can be channelled if required for your healing.
Angelic Reiki is a non-invasive, powerful treatment. It differs from Reiki as Angels are called in to oversee and partake in the healing, their high vibrational energy brings about healing and balance on a physical, emotional or spiritual level. You do not need to be religious to receive and benefit from Angelic Reiki as it is open to any belief system.
It is a very gentle although powerful treatment. The therapist acts as a bridge allowing the angelic healing energy to pass through them and into you. You will be lovingly supported to let go of physical, emotional and karmic imbalances as well as ancestral issues. Angels are not restricted by time and space and are excellent for clearing past or future life issues.
Shamanic healing is an ancient method of healing. Traditionally a shaman was a prominent part of village life, often known as Witch Doctor or Medicine Man. A shaman connects with the energies of the natural world, the ancestors and ancient knowledge, tapping into the power of Mother Earth and all creation to bring about healing and restore balance, not just to the individual but to the world including people, plant, animals and all life forms. If a client has suffered an energy loss a shaman may “journey” to retrieve that loss. they may also give the client a task or a “mantra” to repeat to assist their healing.
A shamanic healing session, maybe loud, as the practitioner may use drums, rattles, chimes, singing bowls, chanting and song, as well as 'sacred smudge' - a method of burning herbs or incense to spiritually cleanse and bless the area. The practitioner may use other healing tools, such as crystals, feathers, flowers, symbolic tools as well as hands on/off energy healing.nt for clearing past or future life issues.
Herbal Medicine has been used throughout history around the world treating numerous conditions. Before modern medicine Herbal medicine was the only medicine available. A lot of todays medicines’s chemical components are derived from plants + herbs. Herbs have been used to treat numerous illness and diseace. As the aim is to heal the whole person, restoring health in body, mind and spirit a detailed questioner and consultation is carried out prior to treatment commencing.
All forms of forms of energy healing treatments may be taken in person (in my therapy room) or you may choose for your treatment to be carried out distantly. This would need to be at a pre-arranged time when you know you can relax and are not going to be disturbed, you would need to make payment and participate in a consultation prior to the treatment. And be available immediately following the treatment to give and receive feedback.
Space Cleansing uses sound, aroma and energy healing to cleanse and re-charge the energy of your home or office. This fills your personal space with vibrant, positive, revitalised energy and in doing so aims to improve the quality of your life.
Space Cleansing works best after you have completed any physical clearing or cleaning. This is due to the energy having had a little shake or dusting off in preparation for the cleansing ritual. Enhancing the cleansing and ensuring your building gets the best treatment at that time.
I would recommend it at the start of a "new project” such as moving home or moving your work location (if it is your business or you are responsible for the premises).
