Frequently Asked Questions
What are your working hours?
One of the joys of working for myself means that I am able to change my working hours to fit in with my family, students and clients. Below is a rough guide to when I'm available for treatments, but these often change so it's always worth checking my booking system and contacting me if you can't find something to suit you:
Do you take card payments?
Yes, I take card, cash and cheque payments. You can also pay by bank transfer or open a wellbeing account if you prefer to make regular payments and receive 10% discount on treatments.
When should I arrive for my treatment?
Please aim to arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. If you arrive more than 5 minutes early I am likely to be busy with my previous client or preparing my treatment room ready for your arrival. Late arrivals may result in me needing to reduce your treatment time.
How do I get the most out of my treatment?
For the three days following your treatment you will benefit from drinking plenty of water, eating lighter meals and resting if your body tells you to. Holistic (whole body) treatments such as Reflexology, Reiki and Indian Head Massage initiate a cleansing process, working to clear toxins from the mind, body and emotions. Following this aftercare advice will enable you to get the most from your treatment and notice the benefits sooner and for longer.
Coping With and Reducing Stress
Although a little stress is good for us all, today's busy lifestyle with it's constant demands have meant that more and more of us are feeling the effects of too much stress. Here are some ways that can help us to better cope with or (even better) reduce the amount of stress in our lives:
A Meditation to Cleanse the Chakras
A wonderful meditation/visualisation to cleanse the chakras, aiding self healing and leaving you feeling revitalised.
The chakras are the energy centres of our body. They are rotating vortices of energy which can be observed as circles or cones. These cones draw in Pranic or Chi energy from the air around you and send this, as light energy, to the body centres, affecting the body's organs and systems. The frequency or speed of the vibration of these chakras can be observed as various colours, as proven by scientific means using Radionics equipment.
Each of the seven major chakras within your body is indicated by a different colour. It also represents an area of the body and an auric field beyond the body. The chakras respond to and react to your emotions, mental attitudes, physical and spiritual well being.
- Chakra two (Sacral) is just below the navel - orange.
- Chakra three (Solar Plexus) is the abdominal area above the navel - yellow.
- Fill the chest area (Heart) with the green of emeralds or spring grass.
- Bring the color of sky blue into the Throat chakra.
- Midnight blue or indigo fills the area of the Third Eye or brow center just above the eybrows.
- The crown chakra at the top of the head receives violet light. Let this violet light overflow and fill your aura.
When you are comfortable with this process you can speed it up by visualising the ball of light above your head and then imagining each colored light coming down and filling its corresponding area quickly in turn. This healing chakra clearing meditation is lovely to do outside too using the energy from the Sun. Enjoy :-)
