Hynotherapy FAQ




Hypnosis is a pleasant state of mind that is brought about by ‘imagining’ a series of progressively relaxing images & situations. It has been described as ‘guided daydreaming’ and is a very relaxed and pleasant state. It is rather similar to being completely absorbed in your favourite book or movie.
You can't be made to do things against your will - everything you do under hypnosis is done voluntarily. Your ability to decide what you should/shouldn’t do is unaffected and your own moral code of conduct cannot be changed. You won't be forced to dance like a chicken or eat raw onion.
Believe it or not, there will have been many times in your life when you have already felt it, but maybe don’t even know about it. If you’ve ever said to someone “I’m sorry, I missed that, I was ‘miles away’”, then hypnosis feels just like that. Click here to find out more about hypnotherapy

Hatha Yoga




Hatha yoga is one element of an entire system of Yoga philosophy. It refers to the physical practice of asanas (postures/ poses). Yoga is about finding balance, both physically and mentally. "Ha" translates from sanskrit as "sun" and "tha" as "moon". In this way, yoga has much in common with Zen and Taoist philosophy of yin & yang and finding the "middle way".
There is no expectation to adopt a full yogic lifestyle to participate - you are not required to become vegan, practice abstinence and live on an organic farm! I believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of lifestyle and infact many people find that regular yoga practice diminishes their anxieties, stresses and cravings for toxic substances in a natural, balanced way.
Hatha yoga practice is a series of different postures tailored for your needs. Every muscle and joint in your body will be exercised and through this you will learn more about yourself, ways of thinking, habits and wellbeing. You will feel calm, relaxed and peaceful through harmonised breathing, body and mind. Most importantly of all you can expect to feel better at the end of every session. Read more

Thai Massage




A hot herbal compress massage is a technique is often used after a shorter session of Thai massage but is also very beneficial just on its own. A hot, herbal poultice is applied to the body, particularly to relieve painful symptoms such as inflammation, contracted muscles, sprained joints and poor blood circulation.
The healing practice of Thai herbal compress therapy dates back nearly 5,000 years, to an era when the knowledge of plants, including their effects through ingestion or application on the body, were painstakingly researched and then passed down from one generation to the next and from one continent to another.
The style, vigour and flow of the massage depends on what your body needs for balance and wellbeing at the time. Pressure is applied to the "marma points" - similar to the pressure points and ‘energy lines’ in reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure. Click here to find the best price plan for you

How I Practice




Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific zones and ‘reflexes’ on the feet which correspond to the glands and organs of the entire nervous system through the body. Reflexology is much more than a simple foot
rub - it is a powerful therapy which has been shown to have a very positive effect on health and wellbeing. When a part of the body is not working at its best, a sensitive area will be found in the corresponding part of the foot when pressure is applied to it.
By working over sensitive reflexes through a number of reflexology treatments the tenderness will usually reduce as the body begins to function properly again.

Reflexology Explained




Reflexology is the science or method of stimulating reflexes of the foot, hand or ear that correspond to each gland, organ and part of the body. Reflexology is not intended to cure diseases or ailments. Reflexologists are not medical practitioners and are not allowed to diagnose ailments or treat disease.
Reflexology can be a valuable way of indicating areas where higher stress or tension is present in the body and can assist to relieve that stress or tension which can promote or encourage a natural healing process. Reflexology can relieve tension and promote relaxation.
Reflexology is not the same as massage, which involves tissue and muscle therapy to promote relaxation. Reflexology focuses on relaxation of those reflexes through manipulation to reduce stress and tension and enables the body's natural healing processes to promote wellness.

Yoga Explained




It is often assumed that you need to be flexible to do yoga but really this is far from the truth. Its a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons. If you find that you are not that flexible I think you are the perfect candidate for yoga.
If you want to improve your flexibility, yoga is one of the best ways of doing it. Just on a day-to-day basis you’ll feel so much better within your body when you’re more flexible through regular yoga practice. All you really need to begin practicing yoga is your body, your mind, and a bit of curiosity.
As part of a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, yoga will help improve flexibility, strength and body composition. “Power” or “Dynamic” yoga can be particularly beneficial for weight loss as it raises the metabolic rate. Click here to read more yoga FAQ's

A Brief History of Hypnotherapy




The origins of hypnosis go back many millenia; indeed many ancient cultures and civilisations knew of hypnosis and used it as a therapeutic device. Hypnosis was considered as a cure for many physical and emotional ailments and disorders. In other words hypnosis is at least more than 6,000 years old.
In the 21st century, there are still those who see hypnosis as some form of occult power or a stage act where someone is made to behave oddly for the amusement of others. Neither of these things are particularly true but this is often how hypnotherapy has been presented in books and films.
In brief, hypnotherapy is a solution-focused practice, using rapid or indirect techniques, and totally guided by the client. In this respect, it is different from the authoritarian and lengthy methods, but it's essentially doing the same thing - bringing about profound healing and change for the better.

How I Practice




I allow plenty of time for talking before a session begins, as this in itself can be a beneficial process. I combines hypnotic procedures with other appropriate counselling and therapeutic techniques. The aim of this therapy is to assist clients in finding meaningful alternatives to their present, unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving.
Through guided visualization, I provides a safe environment in which you can completely relax, helping you to tap into your own imagination and discover your own inner resources. Combined with other counselling techniques, it can also assist in resolving relationship difficulties and be useful within anger management strategies.
Hypnotherapy can be extraordinarily effective but it is not magic.  However, if the right ingredients are present – that the client is genuinely willing to make positive change – then all goals are achievable. Most issues can be resolved within 4 to 8 sessions. Click here to read more about the areas hypnotherapy can benefit you

A Brief History of Yoga




In Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism the word yoga means "spiritual discipline". People often associate yoga with the postures and stances that make up the physical activity of the exercise, but after closer inspection it becomes clear that there are many more aspects of yoga.
It is an activity that has been practiced for thousands of years, and it is something that has evolved and changed overtime. Different factions of yoga have developed since its conception. In Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism the word yoga means "spiritual discipline".
Yoga is more than mastering postures and increasing your flexibility and strength. Yoga originally focused on applying and understanding the world. Its focus later changed to the self, where you are in the universe and the balance which comes from this. Whatever your motivation there is something in Yoga to benefit everyone.

Types of Massage




There are many forms of massage as well as full body. Massage is a relaxing experience but one with benefits outside of the session itself.Sessions can be tailored for certain areas - neck and shoulder tension for example whilst also promoting general well-being.
A common question is whether a Thai massage can help with a bad back or join pains. The answer, in short, is yes. The back is a huge system of joints, with no shortage of muscles crossing them. There is nothing like Thai massage for back pain (or any other pain).
Thai massage can also benefit people who engage in sports - everyone from runners to weightlifters. Thai massage, like yoga, lengthens muscle fibres and helps the body regain its flexibility, and restores the joints’ mobility and range of motion. Click here to choose a price plan

A Brief History of Reflexology




The practice of reflexology is known from ancient times. The most common theory is that the earliest form of this therapy originated in China around 5000 years ago with the early Taoists. Ancient Chinese used pressure points on the feet for healing the whole body.
The origins of reflexology are not well documented, there are reliefs on the walls of a Sixth Dynasty Egyptian tomb (c. 2450 B.C.) that depict two seated men receiving massage on their hands and feet.
Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world continue to use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions.
