CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR THE SHORT TERM due to Government Guidelines concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19)

(30/3/2020) I will be remaining closed until the UK government announces that my establishment is allowed to open again, in line with social distancing advice. I know that this is a strange and sometimes stressful world that we are living in at the moment, and as soon as I can, I will be offering my services again to you...

My advice to all people is to think about and act on your well being, now more than ever, as you need practise to help keep your mind, body and spirit balanced in these uncertain times. Do not worry about those things in life that are beyond your control, try not to keep watching or listening to the news and make time for yourself to exercise and become more mindful...

Love and thanks to all those many people still going out to work to keep us all looked after. You are all the heroes of this current crisis! And thanks to all of you who are abiding to social distancing and keeping at home, unless essential provisions are needed. We can all do our bit to help society and conquer this challenge, as soon as possible!

Please keep an eye on my web site and I will keep you updated, as soon as I am able to offer my services again... I am sure by that time, everyone will need a good de-stressing massage/healing treat! :-)

If you have any questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to contact me on 07946 609429 (also on Whatsapp)

Stay safe , keep calm and support those that are vulnerable in society, if you are able...

If you have not heard of, or received Reiki Healing before then please read more details about the benefits...

To perform Distant Healing, I will need you to provide a recent clear face picture of yourself (no hats or sunglasses), which I will use to make a connection to you, to provide the healing. We will arrange a convenient date/time for you to receive your healing, when you will not have any distractions or pressures.

Before each session, I will call you to discuss how you are feeling and what you wish to achieve from the healing. This will take about 5-10 mins usually but will take longer if you are a new client to me, as I will need to ask you more details and get to know you better.

During the session, you should make sure that you:

  • Set aside sufficient time in a quiet, relaxed room to receive your healing
  • Maybe light some incense and/or candles to help enhance your relaxation
  • Turn off all electronic devices (including your mobile phone) for the duration of the healing
  • Close your eyes and breath slowly and deeply. Focusing your out breath on any points of stress that you feel in your body
  • Have an open mind and spirit...

The Distant Reiki healing session will last about 30 minutes. During the session you will probably feel warm sensations around the body, especially where I am focusing the energy. Due to the nature of Distant Energy Healing, the Reiki energy might affect you directly either during the session, or several hours after the session.

After the Distant Reiki session, we will have another chat of the phone lasting about 5-10 minutes to discuss your sensations during and after the session.

It usually takes 3 days for all the energy to settle in after the Reiki Healing session. After the session, you could feel some physical and emotional sensations, which can indicate that Reiki energy is working through. If you would like to discuss any of the sensations, you can always get in touch and I will be happy to assist you.

Individual Distant Reiki Healing session = £8

Package of 4 x Distant Reiki Healing sessions = £24

You can pay via Internet Bank Transfer or Paypal.

If you are currently unemployed then I can offer this service free of charge!

Please contact Andy today for details...

This treatment is very gentle and works on stimulating the Lymph nodes and associated vessels and capillaries around the body. The Lymph system processes waste, excess fluid, viruses and bacteria found in the body, and also holds your immune system.

It may be very helpful with the following conditions:

  • Weak / Slow Immune system
  • Tiredness and sluggish, toxic feeling
  • Stressed and drained
  • Water swellings under the skin

Detoxify and Release Stress and Pain with FIRE CUPPING THERAPY...

You may already be aware of Cupping, as it has started to become popular in recent years, especially amongst sports professionals. It involves briefly using a flame in a robust glass cup, to cause a vacuum, so that the cup will stick to (pre-oiled) skin. It is an ancient part of Chinese Medicine, designed to draw out toxins, lift out muscle adhesions, knots, remove blood stagnation and inflammation around muscles (all these things can cause long term pain in the body).

The intensity of the vacuum and pressure in the cups can be altered to suit your comfort and needs. The treatment should not hurt you. The marks left after the cupping treatment are only darker where a problem has been found, such as blood stagnation, inflammation or toxins drawn out. Lighter marks will disappear within a couple of days. Darker ones will take a week or so to disappear. 

If you are suffering with any of the below then you may well find Fire Cupping beneficial for you...

  • Pain caused by inflammation, lack of blood flow (stagnation)
  • Pain cause by adhesion, sticking and knots in muscles
  • Weak immune system (ie you keep getting regular colds, etc)
  • Slow Immune system (recently slowly recovering from illness and want to speed up recovery)
  • Emotional stress in the body
  • Tiredness and sluggish feeling most of the time
  • Feeling like you need to detoxify your system

Read more details about Fire Cupping Therapy...

* £5 OFF Fire Cupping Therapy (30 minutes) for only £20!

** OR You can combine with any existing massage for only £15 extra!

Please quote "FIRE STARTER" when you make your booking.

Keep the balance in your life with Equilibrium....

Massage is becoming an increasingly popular form of holistic and pro-active therapy, enjoyed by millions of people every day. It effectively reduces stress levels, stimulates the body's self-healing processes and helps replenish our vital energy, restoring equilibrium and balance. Enjoying a massage regularly (such as weekly or monthly) may help repair the body, relax and refresh the mind and enhance spirits, so that we are more able to face the challenges of life with a renewed sense of confidence and ease. If the pressures of life are not released through natural therapies, such as massage, then they can gradually have a more detrimental affect on the person as a whole.

Depending upon the choice and combination of massage techniques, the body can either be relaxed or stimulated, making it a useful and enjoyable form of therapy. Massage may alleviate stresses and strains on both the body and mind at once and the effects can often be felt quite instantly after a massage session.

People also use massage as an important complimentary therapy in helping to relieve various ailments and unwanted behaviours in their lives. Massage may help with many, including the following:

  • Anxiety and Depression: helps relieve the various symptoms of anxiety, depression and alleviate the psychological strain caused.
  • Insomnia and bad sleeping patterns: calms the racing mind down and makes the body feel naturally tired and ready for sleep.
  • Lack of concentration and short term memory: helps to calm the mind and senses, enabling the mind to operate in a more focused way.
  • Cutting down on Alcohol: as a compliment to cutting down alcohol consumption and counseling/support, massage may clear toxins from the body, aid restful sleep and alleviate depression.
  • Blood Pressure: can help to lower high blood pressure.
  • Painful areas that cannot be moved: may relieve strain on muscles and joints in the body and speed up their repair. Causes can be bad posture, awkward movement or minor accidents. Massage may also help prevent Repetitive Stress Injury.
