Pelvic, Uterine & Abdominal Treatment

This is an external, non-invasive abdominal massage for all women from the onset of menstruation. It can help to reposition the uterus and internal organs that may have shifted, therefore increasing blood flow, lymph and nerve connections. It addresses the position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs and can help restore homeostasis, the natural balance of the body.

Health issues such as fertility concerns, endometriosis, irregular and painful menstrual cycles, menopause, pelvic floor concerns, digestion issues, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, constipation, old adhesions and scar tissue from invasive treatments such , miscarriage, caesarian delivery may be minimised when addressed by uterine massage.

Ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall forward, downward, backward or to either side. A uterus in any of these positions is called a tilted or prolapsed uterus. Women can have a list of physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and possibly prevented with this therapy.

When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict arterial and venous blood flow, lymph and chi in the body. Just a little extra weight sitting on blood and lymph vessels may cause disruption throughout the different systems. By shifting the uterus back into place the natural balance of the body is restored in the pelvic and surrounding organs. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order.

By receiving this treatment, the upper abdomen is addressed with firm massage to loosen tight muscles around the stomach and arteries, that feed the digestive and eliminative organs with vital blood supply. Massage to the back and gentle corrections to the sacrum and coccyx are applied, that generally do not get addressed in standard massage treatments.

Raynor Massage

Raynor massage is a deeper style of massage. It is generally recognized as one of the most powerful and effective forms of massage therapy today using knowledge gained from traditional Chinese Medicine, Reflexology and Hawaiian medicine amongst others. The goal of Raynor massage is to find an tightness or blockages within the body and clear them. This particular type of massage covers not just the muscles of the body but also the skeletal system and the subtle energy systems.

In Eastern medical theory the physical body stores energies. We refer to this life force as chi or prana. A blockage or disruption in the flow of this energy can cause an area of the physical body to become tight, blocked or forced out of position. We find that tension in the body can also result from emotional or stress related reasons. If a person is holding pain or discomfort in a specific place in the body it does not necessarily mean the pain or discomfort is actually stemming from that particular area. We work on the "whole" person not just the spot where pain or irritation is residing.

Raynor massage has incorporated different techniques and has some of its origins in Eastern forms of massage like Shiatsu, Eastern Chiropractic Work, and Yoga Breath Work. This method simply finds each bit of tension in the body and clears it. There are many different philosophies we don't necessarily need to conform to one in particular. Also other parts of the body that sometimes can be neglected by traditional massage, such as the abdomen, the sacrum, the hips and the feet, hands and head. In Raynor Massage these areas are just as important to include and work on. These areas also tend to hold a lot of tension and blockages. Freeing up these blockages will generally have a great benefit not just to the areas concerned but to the whole of the body.


Reiki

Reiki is a gentle Japanese technique working on the body's energy field, assisting in stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing and well-being with the use of hand to body connection.

When feeling negative and/or stressed, it places tension on our nervous system, vascular system and eventually the whole body. While keeping our body in states of stress it can trigger underlying health problems.

When we are feeling good and happy and our nervous system is free from tension, it helps us overcome stressful events easier and regenerate us back to a healthy state. By keeping the body's energy balanced, it allows time for our system to heal, repair and restore itself.


Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is a tested system of energy medicine that utilizes Prana or Chi to balance the body's energy processes. The bio-energy helps keep the body in maintaining good health. Pranic Healing is a powerful and effective system of energy healing. It is working on the bioplasmic or energy body, not directly on the physcial body. Energetic disruptions first appear in the aura before manifesting as an ailment in the physcial body.


Reflexology
(Ingham Method)

This technique works on reflex points by applying finger pressure on the feet that mirror glands, organs and other parts of the body. Through reflex action and the effects on the central nervous system, it relieves stress and tension and helps with the free flow of energy (circulation, blood, lymph and nerve), creating balance and homeostatis within the body.


Gentle Lymphatic Drainage

This Lymphatic Drainage is a very light yet effective technique which excretes wastes through our lymph nodes. It is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body's immune system.

Our Lymphatic System is the body's front line of defence in fighting infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids i.e. fluids that are not circulating around the body correctly which can cause pain around our joints, low immunity, swollen nodes from infection.


Structual Alignment & Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points occur in the muscular system. These points become blocked and the muscle becomes stressed. They are small knots in our muscle and can restrict or alter the motion around a joint or affected muscle resulting with pain in an area. A perpetuating factor is any physical, chemical or psychological build up that acts to increase trigger point blockages. These are not always found in the area where the pain is residing. Trigger points may also manifest as tension headache, tinnitus, decreased range of motion in the legs, and low back pain. Sometimes you may not even know an area is sore and blocked until a point is pressed. Once trigger points are released, more movement is achieved and pain is generally lessoned.
