Chakra Balancing
There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra is located throughout our body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths.

The clearing of the energy can also balance our emotional state of mind. 
1. Root Chakra — Represents our foundation and feeling of being grounded.
  • Location: Base of spine in tailbone area.
  • Emotional issues: Survival issues such as financial independence, money and food.
2. Sacral Chakra — Our connection and ability to accept others and new experiences.
  • Location: Lower abdomen, about two inches below the navel and two inches in.
  • Emotional issues: Sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure and sexuality.

3. Solar Plexus Chakra — Our ability to be confident and in control of our lives.
  • Location: Upper abdomen in the stomach area.
  • Emotional issues: Self-worth, self-confidence and self-esteem.
4. Heart Chakra — Our ability to love.
  • Location: Center of chest just above the heart.
  • Emotional issues: Love, joy and inner peace.
5. Throat Chakra — Our ability to communicate.
  • Location: Throat.
  • Emotional issues: Communication, self-expression of feelings and the truth.
6. Third Eye Chakra — Our ability to focus on and see the big picture.
  • Location: Forehead between the eyes (also called the Brow Chakra).
  • Emotional issues: Intuition, imagination, wisdom and the ability to think and make decisions.
7. Crown Chakra — The highest chakra represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually.
  • Location: The very top of the head.
  • Emotional issues: Inner and outer beauty, our connection to spirituality and pure bliss.
When I  working with chakras, I think of health as being on a continuum. Depending on your diet, exercise, stress levels, emotional states, and many other factors, you are either moving toward greater health or away from it. It is similar with chakras. “Closed” or “imbalanced” qualities of the chakras are on one end of a health continuum and “open” or “balanced” qualities are on the other end. Depending on your lifestyle, you are either moving toward greater awareness and balance within the chakras or away from it.

My reflexology procedure focuses on two aspects of the chakras: the physical location of the chakra and the endocrine gland that is associated with each chakra by related function or close proximity. The physical locations are along the spinal and head reflex points on the foot.
This Chakra Balancing treatment incorporates the chakras through a variety of techniques. Some of these techniques are familiar to the client, while others provide an opportunity to introduce something new. The combination of the techniques can leave you  feeling relaxed, focused, and ready to book their next experience.

 Benefits of DRY SPORTS  Cupping Therapy with  deep tissue massage
 May help to Reduce Pain

One of the most common reasons people turn to alternative treatment methods is because they’re looking for a safe way to naturally reduce joint pain and muscle pain. 
Cupping is thought to release tissues deep inside the body, relax tense muscles and ease stiffness associated with chronic back and neck pains, migraines, rheumatism, and fatigue.
Cupping targets soft tissue by applying local pressure to pain points and areas of swelling. As blood flow increases within vessels and capillaries, tissues receive much-needed nutrients and oxygen.

MY CLIENTS enter a more relaxed state since it sedates the central nervous system. 

Cupping helps improve immune function by moving blood and lymphatic fluid throughout the body, which is why it’s been associated with reductions in lung diseases (especially chronic coughs), allergies, infections and asthma

Massage therapy / Reflexology cupping are popular ways to improve digestion and reduce symptoms from disorders like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This might primarily be because they can lower a patient’s stress response, which is highly tied to healthy digestive functioning.
Respiratory infections
Blood disorders, such as anemia and hemophilia
Joint pain caused by arthritis and fibromyalgia
Migraine and tension headaches
Muscle aches and stiffness

CUPPING therapy for the digestive system
CUPPING THERAPY externally manipulates the digestive system and reproductive organs. It works the small and large intestines, stomach, colon and reproductive organs.
Cupping Therapy for the digestive system is a great way to stay regular as well as assist in detoxification of the body.

Cupping of the of the abdomen may improve digestion by increasing the flow of digestive juices and absorption of nutrients. 
It is also believed to stimulate the digestive process by regulating movement of the organs involved in digestion. 
Dysentery, diarrhea and gastritis are conditions treated by applying cups to the belly button area. 
Cupping may also provide pain relief and improve breathing.
Natural relief. Natural you. 


the true moment of relaxation. In addition to energizing and invigorating the muscles, it offers a unique opportunity to bring oxygen to the face, stimulate blood circulation, revitalize and soften the skin as well as rebalance hydration - giving an immediate face lift effect. 
MOVEMENT which activates the natural hydration of the skin, stimulates the process of cellular regeneration and brings relief to tired, stressed skin. Most of all a massage relaxes and brings a feeling of serenity.

TRULY AN ANTI AGING treatment and one to kick of the shoes. Lie back and absorb.

Do you sometimes feel stressed, muscles tensing up, heart and mind racing, with fast, shallow breathing, lack of appetite and maybe even feeling sick? Stress affects our bodies and minds in many detrimental ways, affecting our Endocrine, Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Reproductive, Immune, Digestive and Musculoskeletal Systems and over time, producing long-term, negative effects.

Massage produces a deep form of relaxation, enabling our bodies and minds to forget about everything and let go of life’s daily stresses. But massage is not only about relaxation. As one of the oldest and simplest forms of healthcare, massage also increases circulation, stimulates the lymph system, relaxes injured or overused muscles and releases endorphins (the body’s natural painkiller).

A one-hour massage session can reduce stress by lowering the heart rate and reducing levels of insulin and cortisol. Massage also improves blood circulation, leading to lower blood pressure and improved body functions. ... Stress can cause muscle soreness, but massage relaxes the muscles and reduces pain.
Just like a car, your body needs to be maintained. Letting your mind free and your body recharge is essential to your well being. Not giving your mind and body chill out time is likely to result in illness and secondary effects such as poor performance at work or sport.

Benefits of Dry Cupping for Athletes
Be it pre / post exercise / event the benefit of Dry Cupping far exceeds ordinary massage. The heat penetrates 3 centimetres into the muscle with minimal pain as the cups does the work a massage therapists hands would do. A session can be tailored to the Athletes requirements and special attention paid to injured muscles, joints or tendons. 
The massage itself will effectively remove the lactic acid built up in the muscle during exercise thus leaving your muscles /joints healthier and freer movement.
My clients are feeling the benefits of this treatment.
The vacuum formed by Cupping draws up the old non-circulating stagnant blood and sticky fluids from the area, bringing them up to the surface and away from the injury so that healthy free circulation can be restored to the affected area, thus creating space for oxygen, living cells and nutrients for faster recovery.Where there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and toxins present in the body, 
Cupping can leave marks which indicates that the stagnation or disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface.
