Studies of Ayurvedic Massage Benefits
Ayurveda studies conducted by Dr Hari Sharma of the Ohio State University College of Medicine showed that after three months of Ayurvedic massage, patients’ blood showed a significant decrease in the free radical lipid peroxide and an improved immune response.

An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth A Pound of Cure
Massage therapy is a wonderful addition to your self care regime. By seeing a massage therapist regularly you can prevent minor skeletomuscular injuries from becoming major problems that could lead to loss of mobility or flexibility later in life. Massage therapy specifically works to lengthen muscles that are stuck in a pattern of chronic shortening.
Regular massages can also be extremely beneficial for those who find relaxation to be difficult. By incorporating techniques that act upon the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems, massage therapy can help slow down the heart rate, decrease activity in an overstimulated nervous system, and allow you to deepen your breath.

Reiki is a practice developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui using hands in order to transfer Universal energy through the palms, which allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own innate healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilised for one’s personal wellness.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A session is usually 60minutes. A discussion will usually take place during an initial session with us. We will describe the session, giving you an opportunity to discuss any particular problems or issues you are experiencing and ask what you are hoping to achieve from the session.
For the actual session, you will rest comfortably on a massage table. Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and you remain fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested.
A session can either be hands-on, where a Practitioner will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where we will hold hands slightly above your body.
If a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this before they begin.
