THERAPIES SUITABLE FOR THOSE LIVING WITH CANCER

THERAPIES GENERAL INFORMATION

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy massage is an alternative therapeutic technique which combines massage with the natural properties of essential oils*. 

After the consultation, one or more essential oils* are selected based on what you need and are mixed in with the massage oil or lotion. The subtle aroma of the essential oils fills the air around you during the massage. Aromatherapy massage may have physical, emotional and mental effects, and is also described as a great relaxing and rejuvenating experience. 

*Aromatherapy essential oils are pure essences extracted or distilled from plants. Flowers, leaves, roots, resins, seeds and fruits of many herbs, shrubs and trees are used to provide aromatic oils, each with their own unique properties. Some oils are used for their balancing effects on the nervous and hormonal systems, some for their ability to support the function of bodily systems. 

Our specialists will assist you in the management and corporate governance of your business.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body.
Some practitioners may also include work on points found in the face and ears. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.

During a typical reflexology session the reflexologist will take a detailed medical history. Sessions are usually performed in a comfortable chair or couch. If it is to be performed on the feet, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks but other forms of reflexology require no removal of clothing. The practitioner will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked before beginning the precise reflexology massage movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers. 

Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapist’s expert touch may help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.

 

Holistic Massage

Holistic massage is an individual therapy that is specifically tailored to each client, taking into account his/her emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as the client's physical body. The intention is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and help the body to relax. 

Each session can include a wide range of massage techniques which can range from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods. Every therapy is unique providing a creative opportunity for the therapist to adapt to the given situation. 

In a typical massage therapy session, the therapist will discuss symptoms, medical history and the deisred results. The practitioner generally performs some evaluation through touch before beginning the massage. Oil is usually used for a holistic massage to help reduce friction on the skin. 

Massage may be found to bring relief from everyday aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension, and aid general wellness. It can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage

As suggested by the name, deep tissue massage works more deeply into the muscles, targeting specific areas of tension and tightness. By working on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue in the body, deep tissue massage can help release chronic tension, improve range of movement and reduce pain.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage

Stone therapy session is deeply relaxing, which combines holistic massage with the use of water-heated smooth basalt stones with oils. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles and the therapist then uses a combination of her hands and the stones in a series of different massage strokes which work differently on the muscles to relax, soothe, invigorate, stretch and stimulate. 

Its aim is to release physical tension, improve circulation and flush toxins from the body. Using heated stones throughout massage therapy may bring about physiological and psychological responses within the body which may result in a number of therapeutic benefits.
