FOOT MASSAGE &  REFLEXOLOGY

This treatment can be used for relaxation and pain relief. We believe that the feet represent the energy of the body. This treatment will calm and balance your body and mind, and stimulate your organ system. Everyone can benefit from Reflexology even during pregnancy. We believe it works very well to treat a wide variety of pregnancy discomfort such as morning sickness, fluid retention, and swelling. Reflexology is generally considered safe in pregnancy, providing all is well with your pregnancy and we are informed that you are pregnant. We will not treat a pregnant woman during the first trimester due to a misplaced patient fear that it may cause a miscarriage.

Benefits of reflexology:

  • Stimulates and promotes functioning of all internal organs (due to manipulation of reflex points on foot)
  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage - helps detoxify body
  • Improves circulation in the feet and legs

Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Biodynamic method is an approach to body work, which is based on the principle of the Breath of Life. The Breath of life is the life force which connects us to our being, our core and our inherent health. The Breath of life is a therapeutic force, which expresses itself as a tidal movement that is called Primary Respiration.  Although Cranio Biodynamics does not focus on symptoms, the connection to inherent health will bring relief from pain and discomfort. This process of therapy helps to listen to your system and be aware of your possibility in presence

During treatment the client is fully clothed. The therapist will make contact by lightly placing her hands on your body and tuning in to what is happening by "listening with her hands".

The therapist is able to notice restriction or contraction held in fluid and tissue fields then accesses deep potency and client's own re-allignment. You will feel deeply relaxed during the session.

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy (BCST) can lead to changes in areas of restriction and discomfort, and an optimizing of overall health. Clients often experience more energy, resilience, calmness and mental clarity.

Through a series of treatments a client can experience greater vitality and well-being, an improvement in symptoms and a movement away from old patterns and disease.

Testimonials:

The session was very calming and relaxing. I felt warmth and a tingling sensation in the areas of my body that she touched.
I had an injury on my foot/ankle area which has taken about 6 months to heal but still causes me discomfort, swelling, stiffness, discolouration and a numb sensation. The rest of the evening the tingling feeling in my foot continued, right until I went to sleep. In the morning my foot felt considerably better. A lot of the normal stiffness had gone and the general colour looked a lot better.

My elderly cousin suffered a stroke mid 2013 which affected the right side of her body. She felt the effects of this in a very painful right bicep muscle. Two other effects hindered her daily functioning. Her speech had become slurred and indistinct and her ability to swallow means her food has to be pulverized.
Through Miwa’s weekly cranial sacral therapy sessions over a number of weeks I am so happy to report two wonderful results. A newly opened pathway from the brain has released the build-up of toxins in Agnes’ bicep and she is free of pain. Secondly everyone in her large family has noticed and spoken about the clarity of her speech since beginning therapy with Miwa.
We’re hoping for a third miracle at the hands of this very focused and skilled therapist!
