Aromatherapy is the art of using essential oils, extracted from plants, in a controlled manner, to improve and maintain the health and well-being of the mind, body and spirit. Massage is the manipulation of body tissues to produce therapeutic effects. Together they make the most wonderful treatment. A full consultation will precede any aromatherapy treatment. This is so essential oils can be chosen according to the physical and emotional needs of the client.

The Bowen Technique is a gentle, subtle and relaxing treatment. The practitioner uses the thumbs or fore fingers to make a series of rolling movements over muscle tissue. It can be used for a whole range of conditions and treats the whole person, not just the symptoms. 

Chinese Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice where a flame is introduced into a special glass cup, thus removing the oxygen present. When the cup is applied quickly to the body a vacuum is formed. The skin gets sucked up and rises under the cup as blood rushes in, promoting localised healing. The Qi/chi energy is also warmed and starts to flow freely down the meridians. It can be used to improve circulation and to ease musculo-skeletal tension and pain. It is good for problems in internal organs and also respiratory problems as it opens up the chest; especially good if you have a cold. Please be aware, it can leave bruising marks on the skin.

Counselling is an empowering process, it is for people who are courageously facing their fears, to take control of their life, and fulfil their potential, and have an increased sense of well being.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)  is a powerful new psychotherapy technique which has been very successful in helping people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post-traumatic stress and many other emotional problems. The EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system. This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself.As troubling images and feelings are processed by the brain via the eye-movement patterns of EMDR, resolution of the issues and a more peaceful state are achieved.

Private 1-1 Readings with Paul Hunt Psychic & Medium: During a private reading Paul can work in two ways, first of all he would ask the client if they would like a Psychic reading which would mean Paul would be linking into someone’s energy field and would be able to pick up on someone’s personality, life experiences and things that may be going on within the clients life at that time. Paul may be able to give guidance on things that are picked up.This would also involve having your Tarot cards read. Paul also works on a mediumistic level where he works with his spirit guides to contact the spirit world to pass on messages and confirmations.

It induces deep relaxation, reducing stress, improving circulation, reducing inflammation, eliminating toxins and generally balancing the whole body system.

Reiki is a subtle yet powerful treatment which aids in unblocking the Chakra System(energy points) in the body. The treatment is performed with the hands in contact with or just above the body. The practitioner acts as a channel for the energy, which then goes to wherever it is needed most. The client usually enters a meditative state and with regular treatments can reach a place of 'True Serenity'.
