Duration - 1 Hour Using traditional massage techniques to help release stressed tight areas in the body at a deep level. Releasing tension in the muscles allows the body to heal, increase flexibility, prevent injury, flush out toxins & increase blood flow & lymph throughout the entire body to aid the bodyâ€™s healing. Sports massage is very effective in treating many conditions such as back pain, tendonitis or even headaches, although perhaps the most frequent problem seen is muscle tension from stress - deep tissue massage brings great relief to specific areas of pain & tension.
Duration - 80-90 minutes (women only) Chavutti Thirumal is an Indian massage therapy thousands of years old. Chavutti originated alongside traditional Indian martial arts, dancing & yoga & was developed to maintain & improve suppleness, to treat the pain & swelling caused by combat. Chavutti is equally suitable for those not involved in sport as it is an incredibly relaxing treatment in which the energy lines of the body are deeply massaged with long sweeping strokes leaving you feeling uplifted, energized & free of muscular tightness & pain. This treatment is also the perfect complement to our detox diet as it helps to flush the system of toxins, & profoundly relieves any aches & pains caused by the increase in your daily activity/exercise levels. Chavutti Thirumal is often described as â€˜the Rolls Royce of massageâ€™ for many very good reasons. Given primarily with the feet, therefore allowing long deep strokes from the fingertips to the heels, Chavutti is a deep, energising, detoxifying & incredibly unique massage treatment the like of which you will find hard to match throughout the world. You will feel huge benefits after just one session & several treatments can offer a real physical & energetic transformation.

Duration - 1 Hour Reflexology is considered a clinical therapy, which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the hands & feet, which correspond to all glands, organs & parts of the body. It is a non-invasive treatment; there are no needles, no drugs or side effects. During the treatment, specific areas of the feet can be tender; this may indicate congestion in that particular part of the body, which means there is a diminished nerve & blood supply. Reflexology can assist these congested areas by improving the circulation & providing the necessary resources for that part of the body to function at a more optimal level. In a typical session, all areas of the feet will be covered to detect the congested areas. Reflexology is very useful in discovering the root cause of a symptom because typically the most congested area is the area that needs the most attention. Although we may think that the symptom is where the problem is located, more often than not, the actual location of the root cause is a lot further away.
Reflexology has been used as far back as Ancient Egypt in 2330 BC. There are hieroglyphics in the physician's tomb of Ankhmahor that depict therapists working on the hands & feet of their patient. Ancient civilizations have always considered the feet to be sacred. In fact, the Ancient Egyptians considered the feet to be the portals of which the soul entered & departed the body; this is why they removed the soles of the feet in the process of mummification. In Japan you may often see the Buddha with the feet turned upwards with sacred symbols imprinted on the soles.
Reflexology can help with a whole spectrum of dis-eases or ailments; the list below shows some examples:
Depression, anxiety, stress Pain reduction (including post operative) Infertility Chronic & acute aches & pains Digestive disorders Nervous disorders Circulatory disorders Chronic illnesses, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer etc etc Hormonal imbalances Migraines, headaches Obesity & water retention
Even after just one session of reflexology, the client will feel a sense of well being, less symptoms of the previous problems & very light & flexible feet...
The therapy involves the application of pressure to specific points, known as reflexes, on the feet & hands to encourage the body to heal from within. The therapy is based on the principle that the feet & hands contain 'mini-maps' of the whole body & that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body. Reflexology is a holistic therapy which treats the person as a whole not just their symptoms. Holistic therapies take the emotional & spiritual being into account as well as the physical. Most people tend to associate the feet with reflexology, however reflexology also works on the hands. Hand reflexology is often used as a self-help tool. One thing is clear, reflexology is so much more than a simple foot rub or hand massage.
It is a Powerful therapy, which has been shown to have a very positive effect on health & 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 or hand 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 as it reaches homeostasis.
How reflexology helps with detoxification:
Reflexology is an excellent aid to assisting the body to detox & to increase circulation to areas of the body that are congested, thus improving the overall ability of all organs & glands in their performance. If the intention in a session is to improve detoxification, then parts of the feet that help with that process can be focused on. For example, the main areas of detoxification in the body are:

Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine & works by strategically redirecting & balancing the flow of energy or life force - qi or chi - in the body to restore balance. When the body is balanced, it functions efficiently & has the resources to protect & purge many internally & externally sourced toxins. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that chi flows through pathways (meridians) in your body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points along these meridians. Practitioners believe that your energy flow will be re-balance.
How acupuncture aids detoxification?
Improves circulation, allowing for blood to circulate through the organs of detoxification (kidneys, liver, lungs, GI tract) more efficiently. Regulates oxidative stress & reduce inflammation both of which can negatively affect liver function, resulting in less efficient detoxification, strengthens digestive function. The digestive system is responsible for separating nutrients from waste in the foods that we eat. When healthy & functioning properly, the small intestine blocks many toxins from ever exiting the digestive tract. Treat insomnia & improve sleep. Periods of rest are integral to healthy liver function. Insomnia can be very damaging to the detoxifying functions of the body. Reduces feelings of stress, anxiety & depression. Poor emotional health & stress impede the flow of qi to the Liver system & negatively affect its ability to detoxify. Acupuncture has been shown to relieve stress & helps to restore healthy brain chemistry such as the improving production of endorphins & serotonin. Strengthens the effects of other treatments. By improving qi circulation in the body, acupuncture can increase the efficacy of many diet, supplement & herbal treatments. Seeing as we live in a world rife with many environmental toxins the body is not naturally prepared to deal with, combining acupuncture treatment with a detoxification protocol recommended by your health practitioner is often the best answer.
Acupuncture is also used to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of diseases & conditions, for example: Fibromyalgia, headaches including migraine, low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis & menstrual cramps.
