Touch is a powerful tool. It can both comfort and calm a person. Looking at each individual in a HOLISTIC light, taking in to account their home / work / school life balance I determine, with them, what they need and what varying techniques and treatments will work best for them to thrive.
From soft gentle pressure that helps calm the nervous system, relaxes and balances the mind - hugely benefitting the client, to a deeper stronger pressure that manipulates the muscles, breaking down knots and releasing areas of tension, encouraging deeper breathing and better blood flow.

The goal: for you, the client, to leave the treatment room feeling more relaxed, looser, de-stressed, positive and happy.
Prenatal massage can be used throughout all 3 trimesters. It is good for both the Mammy and the Baby. There are numerous benefits
to pregnancy massage. One of the major benefits is how pregnancy massage promotes relaxation. Relaxation is key to the production

Throughout your pregnancy, normal life continues. You have to work, exercise, look after your other children. And with this comes the everyday tensions, knots, tightness, aches and pains. Therefore you should still get a treatment that will not only help alleviate the soreness but also induce a deep sense of relaxation and comfort!

Craniosacral therapy is a relatively new treatment in comparison to massage and reflexology. For a therapy that uses such gentle touch,
it really is so powerful! The therapist job is to tune in to and read the cranial rhythm of the client's body. Once that connection is
made, the therapist then facilitates the client, helping them find their own path to self healing and rebalancing their mind, body and spirit
The touch is so light and gentle, this treatment can be given to day old babies, children and the elderly - as well as adults.
Cranio works on so many levels, alivating physical aches and pains by manipulating the bones of the cranial system, relaxing and soothing the nervous system, reducing stress. It also goes way deeper to help release emotional and physical discomfort that clients could have been holding on to from as far back as birth.
It truly is a beautiful treatment!
