Reflexology is an ancient therapy, which is relaxing and can help with many problems including IBS, tension, stress, and aches and pains. It boosts the immune system and can help revitalize energy, by stimulating the reflex or pressure points on your feet, and so helping your body to re-balance itself.
Includes foot relaxation, treatment and foot / lower leg massage.

Low Level Light Therapy
Medically approved for relieving pain and stiffness, improving circulation, reducing inflammation and for stress relief this gentle, non invasive treatment has many beneficial effects which also include helping to heal injuries, improving the immune system; skin, glandular and nerve rejuvenation and aiding the body to heal itself. It works for acute and chronic problems and can be used on people of any age.
Give your body extra energy!
Treatments can also activate endorphins and beneficial enzymes (so reducing stress) as well as rebalance the body.
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is applied to the body using pads containing powerful Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) which disperse light (red, blue or infrared) over a wide surface area, – the most profound, safe, non invasive way to `enlighten’ your cells. Light is absorbed into the body and converted to energy at cellular level (in a similar way to the way natural sunlight is used by the body, but with no chance of burning!)
Low Level Light therapy has been shown in over 50 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms
- Soothe, relax, and de-stress
- a medically-proven effect in enhancing blood flow and circulation
- helps promote better sleep and enhances mood, particularly with S.A.D.
- decreases stress
- relieves pain and inflammation
The treatment is relaxing and gentle – many clients find they ‘drift off’ during a treatment and can feel benefits immediately, especially with a reduction of pain and tension.
