Crystal Healing and Energy work
Crystals have been used throughout history for healing, personal reflection and meditation. They work well with the human energy field, and can move, absorb, re- focus, direct and diffuse energy within the body.  When the body is unwell or dis-eased it is usually because the person has in some way, lost their balance and natural rhythm, working with the vibration of crystalline energy helps the body to find this natural rhythm again.  The crystal’s atomic structure, gives out a resonance of perfection, a pattern for the body to follow.
During treatment the client’s energy field is assessed then crystals are selected and can be either placed on or around the body in grids and templates to achieve a powerful treatment that is unique to the individual.
It is a non-invasive treatment, which restores equilibrium to all aspects of our mental, emotional spiritual and physical self.
History of Crystal Healing
The earliest records of crystal healing come from ancient Egypt and references can be found in ancient writings which refers to the medicinal uses of many different gems and crystals. Healing with crystals is also part of the Indian Ayurvedic medicine traditions. and and in traditional Chinese medicine. These traditions are over five thousand years old.

What is Reiki
The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Reiki’s natural healing energy works on every level, physically and emotionally.  It promotes the body’s natural regenerative self-healing ability.
The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well being. Known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India.  Reiki is a non-invasive therapy and it may be used with confidence alongside conventional medication because it acts in a complementary way.

Integrated Meridian Reflexology
Integrated Meridian Reflexology evolved through my love of energy and crystal work. It is a treatment enhancer for traditional Reflexology and incorporates the additional balancing of specific Meridians of the hands or feet with a unique crystal technique.  I find that by working at this level greatly enhances the therapy and provides ‘space’ for deeper seated emotions to shift and release and is a deeply relaxing and healing experience with lasting effects


Reflexology is an ancient therapy used for thousands of years by the Egyptians, Native Americans, Chinese and Japanese. It works on the principle that the feet are a reflection of the body, and that the whole of the body’s systems are mapped out on the feet.
By applying pressure to the corresponding zones on the feet you are able to stimulate different organs and systems and therefore restore the body’s vital energy, which will then encourage improvement in ailments and self-healing.
Reflexology can help to improve the following ailments:
•Back/Neck Pain
•Sinus and Bronchial Problems
•I.B.S and Digestive Disturbances
•Circulation and Chilblains
•P.M.T and Menopausal Problems
•Constipation/Urinary Problems
•Depression/Stress and Anxiety
•Insomnia and Irritability

La Stone Therapy
Based on Ancient Native American healing rituals this truly unique massage uses the healing energy of warm volcanic smoothed stones and cool marble stones, to ground, balance and vitalize the entire body, mind and spirit.
The special stones are placed along the spine, and on the individual chakra energy centres, while the body is then massaged with the warm stones using Aromatherapy oils.  One massage stroke with the stones is the equivalent to ten with just the hands making this an extremely stimulating treatment with long lasting effects

Crystal Healing Facial/Holistic Facial
This beautifully unique facial blends eastern and western philosophies; crystal healing and pure natural products to re- balance the skin, mind, body and spirit.
You will experience the signature welcome ritual, chakra placements, crystal wand massage, and auric cleansing. So much more than a facial

Using a range of ready blended Organic Aromatherapy oils the aim is to improve circulation, recharge the body’s immune system and balance the life force. A pressure point scalp massage is included in this treatment.

Indian Head Massage
Release trapped tension and head energy with this wonderful healing therapy. Fantastic for headaches, neck & shoulder tension, insomnia and stress.
The treatment includes back, neck & shoulders, arms, and head.


The Bowen technique
The Bowen technique is a soft tissue remedial therapy. The technique involves the therapist using fingers or thumbs to move over muscle, ligament tendon and fascia in various parts of the body. The work is very subtle, relaxing and gentle involving no hard or prolonged pressure.
During a session the client will lie on a therapy table or bed, although the work can be effectively carried out with the client in a chair. Most of the work can be performed through light clothing, although some therapists prefer to work on skin.
An initial treatment will address the whole body. As a general rule, moves will be made over the lower and mid back and legs, the upper back and shoulders before finishing with neck moves with the client supine (face up).
A feature of the work is that between sets of moves the therapist will leave the room and allow the client to rest. This is a key element of Bowen and is a defining aspect of the technique as well as being one of the most important. The break allows the body the opportunity to create a decision about what action needs to be taken in response to the moves given, and gives the nervous system a chance to establish the correct actions. In the process, the body can gather other information and it is common for areas not being directly treated to respond to the treatment.
A session will last generally around 45 minutes to one hour. Treatments should be scheduled for between five and seven days apart and an initial set of three treatments is recommended in order to establish whether the client is likely to respond to treatment.
Some of the conditions that may respond to Bowen :
•Poor mobility
•Asthma and other respiratory problems
•Back problems
•Bell’s palsy
•Constipation and diarrhoea
•Digestive upsets
•Ear Problems/Dizziness
•Fluid retention
•Foot problems (such as plantar fascitis and bunions)
•Frozen shoulder
•Headaches (migraine, sinus)
•Hernia and heartburn
•Bedwetting, incontinence
•Jaw problems (grinding of teeth, misalignment etc)
•Knee and hip restrictions
•Menstrual and other female problems
•Pelvic tilt, leg length, hip imbalance
•Repetitive Strain Injury
•Skeletal and muscular problems from lumbar to back
•Sports injuries
•Tennis/golfer’s elbow
