Hendrickson Method® Massage and Manual Therapy
This is my first choice for chronic and acute pain and injuries. Even after 5 years of using it to treat clients I am constantly amazed at how quick and effective it is, even with long standing conditions. It can help you recover from pain and gain more movement and flexibility. Using massage, muscle energy techniques and gentle exercises, Hendrickson Method® can help relieve:
Back pain including sciatica
Neck pain and loss of motion in the neck
Chronic conditions such as arthritis, stiffness and loss of motion
Foot pain including plantar fasciitis
Pain and stiffness in hands; numbness in the arms, hands, legs or feet
This treatment is carried out without oil and with the client clothed. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.

EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique)
This is a simple technique that combines tapping on acupressure points on the face and body whilst using focused words. It combines western talking therapy with eastern energy medicine and it can be used to address emotional issues or physical ailments. As yet, we don't know exactly why it works, it just does, and results can be remarkable. It has been used effectively with many problems such as:
fears and phobias, anxiety, self-esteem issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, performance issues, relieving stress, physical pain, lack of confidence, nerves before speaking/exams/tests, fibromyalgia and weight control;
in fact any issue that brings un-wanted negative emotion. There is a growing body of evidence about the link between holding negative emotion/stress in the body and physical ailments. EFT can reduce that burden and help you feel happier and healthier. EFT can be used with great success with children/teenagers. Anyone can benefit from EFT.

Reiki is a wonderful, relaxing treatment that can restore balance in your life and enhance all other forms of treatment, both orthodox and complementary. Working with the body's electromagnetic energy system and the universal energy all around us, energy is drawn by the recipient to the areas of most imbalance within them, bringing mind, body and soul back into alignment. There is no need to undress and treatments can be given lying down or seated. It is possible for healing to take place on any level of being; physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. The practitioner gently places their hands, non intrusively, over a series of positions covering the entire body. A deeply relaxing, nurturing treatment that can bring about great positive change.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage
The lymphatic system is a delicate and often over-loaded vascular system close to the skin which requires as much, if not more, attention as our muscular-skeletal system, particularly in women. Swollen tissue, puffy ankles, face and hands, cellulite and water retention, sinusitis, migraine, hormone imbalance, deficient immune system, fatigue and constipation are some of the conditions caused, in part, to inadequate drainage of the lymph nodes. Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a special massage technique which gently 'pumps' the major lymph nodes and then 'directs' the flow of lymph towards these sites. Improvement in any of the above symptoms can be quite dramatic even after only one or two treatments. It is a light and pleasantly relaxing treatment.
