Hopi ear candles 45mins
The process of Hopi candling involves a specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The hopi candle is then lit and the suction that is formed draws secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Often referred to as the ‘chimney’ effect. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and also helps to regulate ear pressure. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas.
Most of these are carried away through the candle “chimney”, although some of them can be found in the condensed or lower section of candle wax after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after. A Hopi ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.
Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Hot Stone Massage (back & shoulder or full body)
Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The
massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body. The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heater until they are within a certain temperature range. The placement of the stones is usually at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes but may vary depending on your needs.
A common question people have is whether to get hot stone massage vs Swedish massage or a regular massage. Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and get this type of massage for relaxation. Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly or who have cold feet. It’s also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work the muscles without using deep pressure.
Massage cupping is used to drain excess fluids and toxins; stimulate the peripheral nervous system; bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin; and loosen adhesions, connective tissue and stubborn knots in soft tissue. The skin will redden with strong massage cupping, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface.
Cupping treatment will aid absorption deep into the tissue, the increased local blood supply will nourish the muscles and skin and allow toxins to be carried away.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
