Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology with Judy Barnard
Massage stimulates the circulatory system, thus improving the supply of oxygenated blood to the body, the removal of toxins and dead cells from the tissues and boosts the lymphatic system.
Although my treatments include deep tissue massage and stretching, I believe massage should not be painful but enjoyable and relaxing.
Tailor made for your individual needs, aromatherapy uses a mix of essential oils aimed at eliminating stress and relieving symptoms such as PMT, migraine, muscular aches and pains, poor circulation and water retention.
The essential oils I use are carefully sourced, ensuring they are from reputable suppliers with the
emphasis on purity and ethical sources. These are carefully selected for your personal needs and blended into a massage wax I make from a combination of cold pressed almond and olive oil and beeswax. Usually applied through massage, my relaxing treatments combine eastern and western techniques, acupressure, shiatsu, fascia release and energy balancing and are available in 60, 90 and 120 minute sessions.
Reflexology is a harmless, non-invasive therapy used in the treatment and prevention of ill-health.
Reflexologists believe every part of the body is reflected on the feet and by using finger pressure on specific points (hands are used where the feet are unsuitable because of disease or amputation) therapists can stimulate healing in corresponding parts of the body to relieve stress and congestion, reduce inflammation and eliminate toxins from the body.
Conditions which respond well include migraine, headaches, backache, stress, insomnia, menstrual and digestive problems.
Many maternity hospitals in the UK now offer reflexology for mums-to-be during the last six weeks of pregnancy as they believe it can contribute to shorter labours. Over the last eight years I have had great pleasure in offering treatments from the 2nd trimester through to birth for a large number of clients. My observations have pointed to shorter and more enjoyable deliveries with all of the mothers commenting on how “in control” they felt during the delivery.
Reflexology and Aromatherapy
This excellent combination of two therapies encourages healing from both inside and outside the body – it is ideal for boosting the body’s self-healing properties.
- Ease tension in muscles, alleviating such conditions as backache, neck tightness, headaches and migraine.
- Reduce stress.
- Increase energy.
- Help eliminate water retention.
