Mindful Holistic Space Treatment Menu
The mind and body are so intrinsically connected, with this in mind it is important that we look after ourselves as a whole not just one individual symptom. Holistic therapies have played an important role in my wellness journey which in turn led me to become a practitioner in certain therapies. My aim is to help others support and improve their health and wellbeing just as I have so they can feel empowered and proactive in looking after their mind, body and souls.
Complimentary treatments look at physical health (body aches and pains, disease, fatigue) emotional health (feelings such as upset, sadness worry, fear) mental health (depression anxiety self-limiting beliefs) and spiritual health (feeling lost or empty, disconnected or incomplete).
Holistic interventions allow the body to restore its natural balance creating a complete integration of body, mind, and spirit.
Reiki is a Japanese healing art that was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. You might also hear it called Reiki energy, Usui system of Reiki and therapeutic touch. Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing, this technique is helpful to encourage emotional or physical healing. It also helps to reduce stress and promote relaxation within the energy systems of the body. The Reiki practitioner will have been taught according to the Japanese tradition of the “sensei” (teacher), who passes the knowledge to the student through attunement, an initiation ceremony that is thought to open the student’s energy channels to facilitate the flow of healing energy.
Reiki is offered through a light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands being placed and held on a series of locations on the head, as well as the front and back of the torso. There is very little to no talking during sessions, which typically last around 45-60 minutes. Additional placements on the limbs can be offered as needed. For example, if there is an injury to a specific area. A complete Reiki session is offered fully clothed, in a quiet environment and is safe for adults, children, mothers–to–be and babies.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS:
Reiki is linked to a range of physical and emotional health benefits, including better sleep, improved mood and pain relief. Research suggests Reiki helps your body return to a state of relaxation, which allows it to heal from damage brought on by stress, injury, or disease. There is evidence that Reiki, used as a complementary therapy with other standard medical techniques, can help people recovering from Cancer and long-term illnesses.
SCIENCE BEHIND REIKI:
When giving Reiki, practitioners have been shown to emit electro-magnetic or bio-magnetic energy from their hands. The frequencies of the energy emitted vary from one moment to the next; but many appear to correspond to those that medical researchers have identified as being the optimum frequencies for stimulating the healing process in tissues, bones and other body parts so far investigated.

HOPI EAR CANDLES
Hopi ear candles are used in ‘thermal auricular therapy’ which helps to promotes general good health and well-being whilst also facilitating in the removal of ear wax. It is regarded as a form of alternative medicine and has been used for thousands of years.
The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapor collects and removes impurities or deposits.
Benefits of ear candling include:
- Removing wax, bacteria and other debris from the ear canal
- Treating sinus infections
- Improving hearing
- Relieving sore throats
- Treating colds and flu
- Relieving headaches and migraines
- Improving mental clarity
What should I expect?
One end of the candle is gently inserted into the ear canal and the other end is lit. The warmth of the candle creates a gentle vacuum, which in turn softens the wax and impurities pulling wax and other toxins out of the ear and into the candle. After the candle has burnt down it will be cut open to examine the contents and determine the number of candles to be used. The treatment will conclude with a relaxing face massage.
This session will take approximately 45minutes. Cost: £35.00
