      THESE APPOINTMENTS ARE ONLY BOOKABLE BY ABERDEEN CITY COUNCIL STAFF INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE Relax your mind, body and soul with the benefits of Indian Head Massage.  Indian Head Massage helps increase mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders.  It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids elimination of toxins and is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. SWEDISH MASSAGE helps to loosen tight muscles, can help loosen stiff joints and ease pain. It increases blood flow so helps improve circulation and also helps with respiration. Increasing oxygen levels in the body. This is the most common treatment and possible the most effective treatment out of massages.  LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE is great for over weight clients who retain a lot of extra water. It's a very gentle treatment but very relaxing. If you hold a lot of fluid in the legs or anywhere else, lymphatic drainage massage can help shift that. As your lymph is what helps keep your immune system healthy, helping the flow around the body helps with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and scar tissues. Cellulite, pregnancy(it's part of pregnancy massage) pre and post ops. There's a lot this gentle massage has to offer.  PREGNANCY MASSAGE helps reduce uncomfortable symptoms that are caused by the pregnancy. Lymphatic drainage is incorporated into treatment as mums to be hold onto to extra fluid and the circulation may not be so good. It boosts the circulation which helps deliver more oxygen to the baby. It's relaxing and helps with anxiety/depression. This goes very well with reiki. REIKI EXPLAINED MY WAY.  Often when you read about it the words 'love and light and energy' are used. That's great if your into reiki. Not so good if you want help in feeling better and have no understanding of Reiki It is impossible to describe Reiki. Even once you've received reiki treatments you can't describe it. This is why a lot of people are unsure if it works or not if they've never tried it. It doesn't help that no one can find the words to describe it. Sometimes when it works or you get results people think it's by coincidence that things change, whether pain has eased or you feel a weight off your mind. I'm happy with coincidences. They happen a lot these days. So the first thing you want to know is.... HOW DO YOU FEEL DURING REIKI? Relaxed is the most obvious feeling with reiki. Within 3-5 minutes your breathing becomes deep like your sleeping but you still hear everything around you. I believe you fall into a state of meditation that you can't nessesarily achieve on your own. This helps to clear your mind and relax certain muscle aches and in turn relieve pain. The second thing you feel with reiki is heat. Especially on the problem area. This is energy. the warmth keeps everything relaxed but also starts to work on problems. You don't feel anything moving or changing. There is no miracle to be felt. Just the warmth from my hands (that are usually pretty cold) and the relaxed feeling where your almost asleep. WHAT IS IT? All I do is place my hands on your body. I start from your head and slowly work down towards your feet. I cover your chakras and I work on the problem areas. (A little something on a familiar chakra or 2.....when your sad you get a sore throat. That's a chakra. When your nervous you get butterflies in your tummy. That's another chakra. It's that simple.) I will do more info on chakras another time I just place my hands on your head or other areas and hold them there for 2-5 minutes. I also go into a relaxed state of meditation with you and I'm very content in that frame of mind. One client had a lot going on. She was stressed and also had a lot of sore ailments. Now I didn't cure her in anyway and I will never cure her but I do give her much needed relief from time to time. It's just that she explained how she felt afterwards so perfectly. Her words were....' It's like someone has separated my body from my mind, sorted them out and put them back together again. It's like nothing matters and I feel nothing. Those are probably the best words ever to describe Reiki. There are no thrills. There are no miracles. You don't have to believe or be religious. Reiki is honest kind energy that we are surrounded by every second of our lives. Everyone has the ability to heal and be healed. Reiki and massage really compliment each other well. I use different combinations for certain problems. A quick note. Reiki is suitable for everyone. From babies to adults. However the youngest age I do reiki on is 5 and the parent must be present. Babies are best to have reiki from their mums.  I will be teaching reiki 1 later this year. It's very simple to learn and the benefits are fantastic. I hope I've helped a little bit in understanding Reiki. If it was easy to understand we would all be using reiki. It's our lack of understanding that's holding us back. The sessions are bookable in 30 minute slots.  If you wish to book for 1 hour, then please book 2 x 30 minute sessions.
