Osteopathy is a hands-on, holistic therapy that looks at the body as one entity. Treatment focuses on the dysfunction as opposed to the symptoms to alleviate pain. Treatment typically consists of joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, myofascial techniques, cranial osteopathy and visceral osteopathy.
Osteopathy has been shown to help with the following conditions:
Muscle soreness / back and neck pain / Tendonitis / Bursitis / Spinal Disk problems / Headaches / TMJ and Jaw Problems / Chronic Pain / Arthritis
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing and releases the stress and tension that accumulates in the head, face, neck and shoulders. Also known as Champissage, we are able to treat the acupressure and trigger points with an increasing but comfortable pressure. Perfect for those who work with computers and hold tension in the cranial and neck areas. Indian head massage also promotes general well-being and relaxation.
Hot Stone Massage
We use smooth, flat, and heated stones placed at specific points on the body. The therapist also uses the smooth water-heated stones to work the muscles. Chilled marble stones may also be used to increase lymphatic drainage. Hot stone massage therapy relieves tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 1.5 to 2 hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation, increasing the benefits of a relaxation massage.
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:
§ Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
§ Decreases pain and muscle spasms
§ Reduces chronic stress and tension
§ Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement
§ Relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles

A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet as well as referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every system, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

The QRS is an electromagentic resonance mat that was chosen for the MIR Space Station to protect astronauts from decreasing bone density while in space. The resonant frequency begins to neutralize free radicals in the body, increase ion transport and improve the absorption of nutrients. Many world class athletes use the QRS to increase performance and recovery. It is relaxing and invigorating and many QRS protocols for pain reduction can be used following a Reflexology or Therapeutic massage treatment.
Tapping and stimulating specific Acupuncture and Acupressure points along the meridian or channels may unblock the flow of energy to the relevant organ, gland or vital system of the body. No needles are used and we may combine the use of essential oils, ayurvedic pastes, or homeopathic remedies with the point treatment. Meridian/Acupoint Treatments combined with Luma Light Therapy additionally remove energetic bloackages and balance chakra centres.
