Current research is beginning to validate what most clients already know about massage therapy; it can help ease or prevent many common ailments that are often treated with prescription drugs and/or hospitalisation. Massage and Scenar therapy are based on the body's ability to naturally heal itself. I very much tailor-make each treatment, depending on the clients needs, using a variety of techniques I have learnt over the years in my body healing work.
WHAT IS IT?
The SCENAR (Self-Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulation) device works as a catalyst on the body’s immune system. SCENAR Therapy is a unique and revolutionary treatment for all types of pain and injuries. It works in two ways to promote rapid healing and provide pain relief, even with stubborn and chronic pain. SCENAR uses advanced medical technology to send signals from the site of pain or injury directly to the brain
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The SCENAR reads the resistance level of the skin and relays this information to the brain via the skin itself. This accelerates the body’s healing mechanism through stimulation of the neuropeptides in each damaged cell. In addition the SCENAR could be used to treat individuals whose bodies do not repair themselves properly as a result of chronic illness. A classic example of this is suffers of fibromyalgia where SCENAR may act as a regeneration and pain management tool.
Scenar technology was developed to “jump-start” the body’s own natural healing response, telling the brain that more of the bodies’ natural medicinal compounds are required to neutralise the pain and heal the injury. Using electro-stimulation on the skin a very sophisticated electronic feedback loop is set up and the nervous system sends a measured dose of neuropeptides, some of the most powerful pain relief agents that the body produces, to the site of pain. As the device is brushed over the area it continuously monitors the changes, sending messages back to the brain so that it is able to adjust the treatment accordingly. In minutes the body has delivered sufficient natural chemicals to give powerful pain relief and to speed up the healing process.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
As the Scenar device goes through treatment cycles, you’ll feel a tingling or prickly sensation on your skin. Some Scenar signals feel simple and very focused, others feel complex and three dimensional. Sensations may appear in totally different parts of the body, muscles may start to contract and relax apparently on their own. It is common for the pain to disappear in its first location, then reappear in another place, then another. Occasionally the signal may feel too strong and the therapist will turn down the intensity. The overall feeling is of comfort and relief. People usually report an immediate reduction in pain, and often a total absence of pain in the areas treated, plus a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing. Better sleep and moods are also common.
Sports Remedial Massage
Despite its name Sports Massage is for both sports persons and non-sports persons alike. My treatments work on improving the quality of the soft tissue within the body.
The blood supply is increased, releasing tension, flushing through lactic acid and re-aligning scar tissue. I work to redress imbalances built up through everyday activities, allowing my patients greater freedom of movement and consequently, better quality of life.
Numerous soft tissue release techniques are used throughout my treatments to ensure the best results are achieved with the minimum of discomfort and maximum results.
Holistic Swedish Massage
A part or full body massage of medium pressure. One of the primary goals of this treatment is to relax the entire body. Using long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart, swedish massage therapy is exceptionally beneficial for increasing levels of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle tension and toxins, improving circulation, increasing serotonin levels, improving muscle tone and promoting total mind and body relaxation.
Indian Head Massage
Based on the Ayurvedic system of healing its aim is to release stress in tissues, muscles and joints in the head, neck, shoulders and face.
A deeply calming, relaxing and heady experience leaving you feeling energised and revitalised. Good for tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches and migraines.
Hot Stones Massage
The volcanic basalt stones are heated in a special oven where they are maintained at a therapeutic temperature. Warm oil is massaged into your skin, followed by massage using the hot stones. The heat from the stones and my massage skills result in deep penetration into the muscles thus enhancing the therapeutic effects of relieving aches and pains and inducing complete relaxation.

Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
Pre and Post-Natal Massage
A gentle massage geared to relieving the muscle cramps, spasms and pain often encounter in the lower back, neck, hips and legs during pregnancy. It reduces stress and decreases swelling in expectant mothers and new mothers.
Pre and post-natal massage has been practiced for thousands of years, to support mothers physically, mentally and spiritually through the challenges of child birth.
This treatment is not available in the 1st trimester.
Hopi Ear Candles
(Thermal Aricular Therapy)
Hopi ear candling is an ancient, mild and natural therapy which has been used by the Native American Indians for many years. The hopi candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. To stiffen the flax they are impregnanted with extracts of honey, chamomile, sage and St Johns wort.
The treatment is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, allowing you to feel calm, completely relaxed and rebalanced. This 40minute treatment includes a mini scalp and facial pressure point massage.
