Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over 1000 years. Traditionally the techniques were restricted to the head and hair, to improve scalp and hair condition of Indian women. Nowadays

Other physical and psychological benefits include:
¥ General and specific relaxation of muscles, providing immediate relief.

Integrated Energy Therapy

Life experiences can take their toll on our wellbeing causing our energy flow to become blocked. When our energy is restricted our body can react by making us more likely to develop illness or diseases, emotional or mental problems. We may find it more difficult to move forward with our health, wellbeing and life.

IET works by releasing these trapped emotions such as guilt, distrust, lack of confidence, shame, feeling unsupported, heartache, anger, resentment, fear and stress. These feelings are generally replaced with positive emotions such as innocence, trust, confidence, support, love, forgiveness, empowerment and safety.

Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage

Price – €60

Lomi lomi is an ancient Hawaiian healing art that was practiced within families,
by master shamans (kahuna) & kupuna (elders). This ancient wisdom was passed down within families or from kahuna to student in the Hawaiian style of teaching which is very different to how we teach & learn today.

The purpose of this massage was always to heal, to align, to balance all aspects of self – to create PONO – and it is given & received in the gentle & powerful spirit of Aloha. It is a sacred dance between giver & receiver, between spirit & body, always respecting & asking permission & allowing that to unfold which the person is ready for.

Lomi Lomi Nui (temple-style) is characterised by its flow, use of forearms in a rhythmic “dance” all around the body, connecting with the breath (HA) and using the principles of HUNA (Hawaiian esoteric knowledge) to bring about profound healing of body, mind & spirit.

Zone Theory is the foundation of Foot Reflexology and an understanding of the Zones as a system for organizing relationships between various parts, glands and organs of the body and the reflexes are essential to reflexology and its applications.

Reiki

During a reiki treatment the client is fully the therapist will place their hands over energy points called Chakras on the body. Heat can often be felt from the practitioner’s hands allowing the energy to flow through and around the
client. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Shamanic Healing

Price – €45

Shamanic healing is thought to be one of the oldest healing practices, stretching back thousands of years and linking to indigenous cultures across the globe. Essentially an energy-based therapy, shamanism is rooted in the
belief that everything has an energy and that, sometimes, work needs to be done to bring things back into balance.

Traditionally, a shaman was an important part of tribal life – a medicine person, said to be able to communicate with spirits and ‘journey’ to spirit realms with the help of their own spirit allies. Modern-day shamanism follows a similar pattern, with properly-trained shamanic practitioners working with power animals and spirit helpers to seek advice for the client.

During your session, the practitioner may use drums, rattles, chimes, chanting and song, as well other healing tools, such as a combination of hands on, or off, healing, similar to that experienced during a reiki session.

Teen Mini Facial

Price – €25

Bring your teens for a Teenage Facial. The treatment includes cleansing, facial wash, scrub, mask and moisturizing. For ages 13-16 (with parents in room)

Our Chartered Physiotherapists are trained in a variety of different massage therapies and techniques but in short, our massage therapy involves applying deep pressure on concentrated areas of tension and pain. Generally with muscle tension or an injury, there will be adhesions (areas of painful rigid tissue) in the muscle, ligament or tendon that cause pain and inflammation.

Our Physiotherapists have the necessary training and knowledge to get deeper into the muscle layers to break down these adhesions and restore normal muscle function as well as relieving pain. Saying that, we make sure the pressure applied is not overly uncomfortable as your comfort is important to us.

Bookings can be made by calling 074 91 24424 or by booking online at Massage Services.
