You will be supported in noticing your felt sense and feeling tones, in the present moment. Things may surface, and we can process them with empathy and wholeness. Together we pay attention to thoughts and emotions, physical relaxation and spaciousness but also tightness and blockages, both emotional and physical. The aim is to reach our inherent health and a place of deep rest and wholeness. Embodiment meditation can help normalise the nervous system so that you can act from a place of health and freedom.

hand + face reflexology

Reflexology is based on the principal that the body is mapped onto the feet, hands and ears and that working specific pressure points brings about change in the corresponding organs, glands or structures of the body. It is thought to help the free flow of energy around the body by improving the circulation and stimulating the organs of elimination. This is believed to bring the body back to a state of equilibrium, thereby promoting the body’s natural healing power.

naturopathy

Naturopathy is a complete system of natural health care which prevents, balances and supports a multitude of conditions of the body and mind. By integrating conventional health sciences with nutritional, herbal and homeopathic remedies etc, naturopathy works to realign the client’s mental, emotional and physical being. A naturopath is trained to view each individual uniquely and to furthermore address the underlying cause of the issue, not simply the superficial symptoms that manifest.
During the consultation, a comprehensive case analysis and examination is taken, followed by an individualised treatment programme, highlighting recommended supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice and investigations where necessary.

nutritional consultations

What we eat is vitally important to our wellbeing and nutritional therapy is a form of complementary medicine in which a practitioner will work with a patient or client around this issue. The treatment involves helping the body rid itself of stressful substances, providing raw materials, and improving the assimilation of food in order to aid physical repair. A nutritional programme is developed based on an individual assessment. Nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle changes are the basis of treatment encouraging the body to rebalance and return to optimum health.
