Q&As

Besides the fact that I love providing massage treatments for customers, I love the fact that I get to exercise every part of my brain ranging from creativity to analytical which is building my business portfolio to prepare me for where I want to take the company next.

I have two natural abilities in my life; figure skating and failing probations, which is what happened in every job I had in my employment career. This can leave one feeling that your best efforts are simply not enough. When I set up my business and experienced the success rate of my company, I came to the conclusion that I was not the fact that I was not enough while employed, it was the fact that I was simply too much.

No one in the world has ever made the connection to combine Mary Poppins and massage therapy and turned it into a holistic therapy company. If that was not enough of a USP, for those who cannot decide on what treatment they want, a big portion of my holistic menu is my Hybrid Treatments; for example, if you cannot choose between a Swedish Massage and an Indian Head Massage, you would be booking me in for the Swindian.

Services

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):

"A system of therapeutic massage and exercise for the muscles and joints, developed in Sweden in the 1800's."

A good place to start who have never had a holistic treatment before and a great way to unwind after a hard day looking after Jane and Michael.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Boosts circulation and lowers blood pressure
Aids lymphatic drainage
Reduces anxiety
Scar tissue reduction
Overall relaxation

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, deep vein thrombosis or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"Everything will turn out alright in the end, if it's not alright, it's not the end" - The Marigold Hotel

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):

Indian Head Massage is like washing your hair in the shower, except there is no water, shower or shampoo. An ancient Ayurvedic practise that has been kicking around for thousands of years. In India today, this is actually a treatment that is provided at the hairdressers or barbers. This treatment only requires you to have the top half of clothing off.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Stimulates hair growth
Helps the mobility in your neck and shoulders
Stress and tension reduction
Migraine preventative
A deeper night's sleep

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, deep vein thrombosis, epilepsy (not medicated) or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"You can't always get what you want; but if you try sometime, you might just find, you get what you need" - The Rolling Stones

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):

This treatment involves using varied sized smooth basalt heated stones that are used to massage instead of your hands. The heat reaches places in your body that most other treatments cannot. Think of your body as a vessel that is filled with rocks; then pour sand into the vessel and that fills the spaces in between the rocks, that is what hot stones is like, except, less sandy.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Hardcore relaxation
Improves your circulation
Eases muscle tension and general aches and pains
Decreases your anxiety levels and you're in a more mindful place
Seemingly, this actually quenches your need for a hug if you're starved for affection (if your family/friends/teddy is not near by)

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, deep vein thrombosis, diabetes or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they've got nothing to lose" - Robin Williams

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):

A beauty treatment for the face
This is probably one of the most relaxing treatments you can receive, as you hold a surprising amount of tension in your face. The face is cleansed, steamed, toned, masked and moisturised. There are other embellishments that can be added to this treatment but can be discussed and tailored to your needs.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Extremely relaxing, as you hold a surprising amount of tension in your face
Cleans your pores at a deeper level
Your lymphatic system lies just under the skin and this is great for clearing out facial waste
Slows down the sagging face process
By the end of the treatment, you will leave looking less like a chimney sweeper

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, deep vein thrombosis or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"Blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people" - Helen Keller

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):
This is where a tapered cotton tube is dipped in beeswax, honey and herbs. This is then lit and the physics behind it is that the flame creates a vacuum inside the tube and sucks out all the impurities from your ears. If you like watching a fire place, then imagine a teeny tiny fire place inside your ear.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Removes excess wax and clearer hearing
Clears congestion
Reduces inner ear irritation
Heightens your senses
This is excellent if you have sinus problems and can even help your eye sight

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, infected/inflammed ear, perforated ear drum, deep vein thrombosis, ear surgery within the last 3 months, grommets or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"Enjoy failure and learn from it. You can never learn from success" - Sir James Dyson

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):
It is like glass cupping, but safer and your can move around with it. This is the only treatment you can have where this is allowed to roll over the spine because of using negative pressure (not pushing into the body but the suction in the cup lifts the skin) think of this as if your body is having a light vacuum without that unbearable sound.
As this is a new treatment in the holistic industry, check out www.bellabaci.com for more details.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Improving blood circulation
Fluid retention reduction
Boosts the immune system
Can be used for deep tissue massage
If you are looking for a deeper facial massage, this can help with the anti-ageing process

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Any skin diseases/disorders, deep vein thrombosis or going through treatment for cancer/chemotherapy.

"Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world will you turn out to be."
- Carrie Fisher

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?)
A treatment that is specifically for women who are expecting a baby. This is a great way for a new mum to take some time out for herself while she has a wee Jane or Michael growing inside her.

The top 5 benefits of this treatment are as follows:
It can alleviate headaches and migraines
The impact that it will have on your posture will help you carry your baby better

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):

It is a treatment that involves massaging starting at your feet to your lower leg using party your hands and partly with a smooth rounded off stick. It is both relaxing and stimulating at the same time. On a more personal note, I actually found that it helped my lower back tremendously.

Improves blood circulation in your legs and feet
Excellent for lymphatic drainage
It can boost your immune system
Improves the quality of your sleep
Aids in general relaxation

A hybrid treatment is for those who cannot decide on what they want and/or would like to try a mixture of treatments during a session.

The Swindian (Swedish & Indian Head Massage)
The Hopit (Hot Stones and Hopi Ear Candle)
Indioma (Indian Head Massage & Pre-Blended Aromatherapy)
Hotdioma (Same as above but with Hot Stones)
Facialoma (Facial and and Pre-Blended Aromatherapy)

"People who say they sleep like babies usually don’t have them” - Leo J Burke

Who, What, When, Where & Why? (well, why not?):
The purpose of baby massage is to enable parents/guardians of a child to bond with their baby phisically and emotionally. Due to the fact that your baby will probably sleep and you will not suffer so much with sleep deprivation, you will be less inclined to throw your baby over board.

The top 5 benefits of the treatment are as follows:
Helps parents/guardians learn and understand baby cues.
For mothers who have PND, it helps you re-establish connection with your baby
The baby develops a sensory awareness for its surrounding world
Produces the same beneficial qualities as a regural massage does for an adult
A great way to bond and relax with your baby

A baby that is sleeping, unsettled (before and during massage, hungry, straight after feeding, tired, immunization (wait 48 hours after jabs so it takes effect), recent surgery, unwell, and have any contagious skin diseases/disorders.
