Therapies and Cancer
Jane can support clients going through the Cancer journey with Reflexology, Reiki, Crystal healing and aromatherapy massage.
Reflexology consists of pressure and massage of the reflex points found on the feet or hands. This treatment relaxes the nervous system, improves the circulation and encourages natural healing by bringing harmony and balance to body and mind. It can be used as a preventative measure to maintain good health as well as helping to alleviate chronic pain, stress and tension as part of a healthy life style.
Following a comprehensive consultation, a blend of pure essential oils is prepared for your individual needs. This is used for a relaxing top-to-toe massage.
This treatment is for those people wishing to detox or boost their immune system. Essential oils will be blended to help fight infection and the light massage will help flush toxins from your lymphatic system. Finally, reflexology will be used to help increase your energy and re-balance your body.
This massage uses deeper techniques than that of an aromatherapy massage. It is used to re-balance postural problems or aid removal of toxic build up after exercise. Connective tissue, neuromuscular and audiosonic techniques will be used, where appropriate.
Remedial and Sports Massage
This massage can be tailored to particular sports or physical activities. It aids faster recovery from training, prepares muscles for intense or repetitive activity or helps to repair stressed or damaged muscles. The treatment will include training advice on pre- or post-match muscle care.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
MLD is a gentle but highly effective treatment to stimulate the lymph pathways. Clearing the lymph is vital for anyone congested by our modern day diet, sedentary lifestyle and exposure to pollutants. Swollen ankles, puffy eyes or knees, indicate the system needs a boost as well as frequent colds or slow healing wounds. MLD is a massage method developed by Dr Emile Vodder and his wife Estrid in 1932. It is a series of light rhythmic manipulations in order to stimulate lymph flow and fluid movement. MLD is also recognised as part of the treatment of lymphoedema following cancer surgery. It can help with water retention, inflammation, acne, eczema, burns, cellulite, prevention of stretch marks, thick heavy or tired legs, constipation, M.E., Osteoporosis and Fibromyalga. It is also a truly relaxing treatment as it calms the nervous system, heals, regenerates and gives one a great sense of wellbeing.

Thermo-Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear)
The word Hopi means “people of peace” and is the name of a native Indian tribe in America. When the candle is lit and gently inserted into the ear, a moderate suction action is created, lightly manipulating the tympanic membrane. This treatment can reduce symptoms of ear, nose and throat conditions, such as tinnitus, sinus, hay fever and snoring.
Warmed volcanic rocks, subtly cooled marble stones massage away life’s tensions, and draw you into a truly deep state of meditative relaxation. The original hot and cold stone massage using high quality stones.
45, 70 or 90 mins
This starts with an ancient ritual called smudging, which cleanses the space around you your aura. Simply lie back and relax while the warmed basalt stones relax your muscles, whilst the cooled marble ones strip them of excess lactic acid and elongate them. Ideal for tight congested muscles, giving faster relief than manual massage. A clinical approach can be adopted for particular muscular tension, energy work can be incorporated to allow the stones, crystals and the therapists healing hands to help nurture, heal and re-balance your mind, body and soul.

Crystal Light Therapy
This profound treatment begins with a purification ritual that creates a sacred space. Then comes a prayer of intention and a guided imagery meditation that balances the energy of the chakras. The body is then massaged with quartz crystal wands, creating a synergistic integration of body, mind and spirit. Performing Crystal Light Therapy is an active meditation where both practitioner and client access their “higher self” and gain knowledge. This is ideal if you feel “stuck” in a situation, whether it be an emotional or physical disorder or simply need clarity from within to move forward in your life.
Traditional crystal healing is performed while fully clothed. Each treatment is prescriptive and will vary each session. The aura and chakras will be balanced with the laying of crystals, pendulum and laser quartz crystal work. This is ideal if you feel stuck in a situation, need clarity from within so you can move on. Physical ailments can be improved with crystal healing as can emotional and spiritual issues be balanced.
