Aromatherapy is the use of plant essential oils for therapeutic purposes. There are over 400 different oils used around the world that are extracted from plants. Each essential oil has its own therapeutic properties that can be applied using a variety of methods of application.
Essential oils, which are highly aromatic, are readily absorbed into the body via the skin and lungs. They affect the body on several levels - physical, mental, and emotionally/spiritually. They can be used to treat a myriad of health issues and problems.
Aromatherapy Massage is a great source of relaxation, maintaining health and a general feeling of well-being. Aromatherapy Massage and essential oils are commonly used in hospitals, hospices and other care settings, supporting patients and their carers.
Pronounced 'ray-key' and meaning 'universal life energy' in Japanese, Reiki is a hands-on, energy-balancing system of natural healing. This life energy - knowns as 'Ki' in Japanese, 'Chi' in Chinese, 'Prana' in Indian and 'Mana' in Hawaiian - flows through all living things.
Reiki is a popular complementary therapy in the UK, and a Reiki treatment taps into this 'life energy' to stimulate the body's own relaxation and healing potential. It is the same energy used in Tai Chi and Yoga. Reiki treatments are simple and unobtrusive.
Developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th Century, this tradition has evolved as a result of Sensei Usui's experience and dedication. In its original form, it was actually a system for self-healing, spiritual awareness and development; however having been brought to the West, it is now used as a system to treat others. It is passed down from Master to Student.
It is a tradition that is open to any belief system. You do not have to 'believe' in anything in particular to receive a treatment.
Massage is any systematic form of touch which gives comfort or promotes good health.
It is recognised as one of the oldest and simplest of all medical treatments, and has been used for centuries. There are references to massage in medical texts nearly 4000 years old.
Until only recently, massage in the West has only really held value within sport, although thankfully this view is changing. In the East massage has always been accepted as a natural and holistic activity; something that all ages can benefit from.
Massage can be stimulating or soothing, relaxing or invigorating. It can make you feel alert and ready to exert yourself, or it can make you feel relaxed and sleepy. It can rid the body of tension, aches and pains, and promote good sleep. It can loosen painful or stiffened muscles. It improves blood circulation which helps the body to remove waste products more effectively and beautifies the skin. It can improve metabolism (which aids weight loss) and tone the body. Massage relaxes you by releasing endorphins, the body's natural painkiller, and as a result, reduces anxiety.
The most widely recognised and commonly used system of massage is Swedish Massage.
