Reflexology is a scientific art based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet (and hands) which correspond to all body parts. The physical art of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction which causes physiological changes in the body.

A primary benefit of reflexology is relaxation. It also promotes natural sleep patterns, helps the body find balance and harmony, helps to reverse the effects of stress so that the body is in a more relaxed state and can therefore heal itself. It helps to increase circulation aiding the nervous system and promotes overall well being.

Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity and promote an overall well-being for the client. Relaxation and relief from tension and stress are often experienced following a full body massage. Blood circulation is increased and drainage from the lymphatic system is improved.

The Indian Head Massage is a form of massage therapy created in India thousands of years ago. It is deep style a massage derived from the Ayurvedic tradition that focuses on the head, shoulders and neck.

Through a variety of different techniques, the massage works to release any blocked negative energy in the body that may be manifesting itself as disease or injury in any one of the seven Chakras (energy centres) of the body. It does so by applying pressure to certain points on the neck, shoulders and head that correspond to each Chakra (which is a similar approach to that of reflexology). This unblocks the Chakras, and allows for a free flow of energy around the body, restoring the individual to optimum health and feelings of wellbeing.

Energy Healing aims to help individuals reach a personalised state of wellbeing and wholeness. This includes: calm and peace for those who are going through difficult issues; energising for those who feel listless; support on subtle levels when change, challenges or any other taxing situations are being experienced and also assistance with past issues. The therapy is focussed on the energetic cause of issues and not physical symptoms, which is why it is regarded as a complementary therapy rather than an alternative to orthodox medicine.

Meditation is a simple and fast way to reduce stress, anxiety and have a sense of peace from within. It has a remarkable positive effect on our body and mind. Meditation is a technique to rest, slow down or quiet the clutter of our mind and bring us into the present moment so we can become aware of our actions. From a very young age we have been taught to move and behave in the outside world but we are never taught how to be still and listen to ourselves from within. During meditation we breathe through our diaphragm and not our lungs. This takes us to a very relaxed state where our mind becomes clear, relaxed and inwardly focused. When we meditate we are fully awake and alert but our mind is not focused on the external world or on the events taking place around us.

Tai chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, tai chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.

Tai Chi can be practised at any age however studies have shown that for aged 65 and over it can help to reduce stress, improve balance and general mobility, and increase muscle strength in the legs.

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility.)

Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. There's some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains including lower back pain, depression and stress.
