Breaking News: Nature's Quay adds "Thai massage" to its range of treatments.

Thai massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.

The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage,while deep, static and rhythmic pressures are delivered.

The massage generally follows designated lines ("sen") in the body. The legs and feet of the giver can be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging. A full Thai massage includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient's back, and moving the recipient's body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver.

It's time to learn about The Benefits of a Seaweed Bath 

Something that can help encourage someone to try a new experience, is learning about its health benefits. With natural macro-mineral elements, vitamins and other beneficial trace elements, seaweed is great for your detoxing your system.

Seaweed is also great for the skin and possesses qualities that can fight against aging and dryness. This is because seaweed contains algal polyphenols and carotenoids which are antioxidants that help your body tackle unstable forms of oxygen that can damage cells.

This is why every product in your skincare regime should contain antioxidants and organic cell enhancing ingredients, especially those used for facial care.

Those suffering from conditions like psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and acne can also benefit from Seaweed’s

Beauty Benefits

 

 

You may know that seaweed naturally moisturises and smooths the skin, but did you know that it also has anti-cellulite properties and can improve the suppleness and elasticity of the skin.

For these benefits to be realised you need access to organic seaweed sourced and hand harvested from unspoiled waters. This philosophy is also applied to the seaweed that is found in VOYA’s Lazy Days home seaweed bath treatment. You can create a luxurious spa treatment in your own home, just add water!.

The Seaweed Bath Experience

The best way to allow your body to capture the nutrient-rich seaweed is to come to Nature's Quay and purchase a seaweed pack for home use and we are exploring the possibility of offering a seaweed bath on site in the near future . Really exciting!

For 50 mins you will soak in a noise free environment that will allow you to relax and rejuvenate.

Enjoy the peaceful alone time and get lost in your thoughts while the seaweed does its work.

Reflexology for better health with Marian Timms (AOR) at Nature's Quay

Marian is a highly qualified (approved member of the AOR – Association of Reflexologists) and experienced Reflexologist who has joined our ever-expanding team of Therapists here at Nature’s Quay. 

 

She says,  ‘Reflexology can fit into a busy lifestyle and can become a welcome respite in an otherwise busy world, helping you feel more able to cope with the treadmill of life.

 

With ever increasing stress in our world, it is important to take personal responsibility for our lives and find ways to combat stress and anxiety which, long term can affect our well being and lead to disease and illness.

 

I can perform reflexology on hands, feet or face and I specialise in baby reflexology (after the 6 week check), pregnancy reflexology and women's health reflexology.  Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself”

 

Modern reflexology is increasingly linked to traditional Chinese medicine and meridian therapy is now being taught in many reflexology schools.

 

Reflexologists work with energy zones and feel for blockages in energy or congestion which can feel like grains of sand or crystalline deposits. By finger walking over the zones, the blockages will be removed allowing free flow of energy.

 

Which conditions can it help?

 

Reflexology helps to relax a person, helps the body cope with stress and improves the circulation of blood and lymph. It has been known to improve sleep quality and patterns, help you feel less frazzled, release tension, improve mood and ones general well-being.

 

Well-being is much more than simply the absence of illness; it includes an improved frame of mind, better relationships with those around you and increased happiness.

 

Pregnancy and Reflexology

 

Maternity reflexology can be of great support to women throughout pregnancy and can promote be general well-being.

 

It can allow you time out from your probably busy life and a place where you can focus purely on you and your growing baby in a calm, comforting place.

 

Although there is no evidence that reflexology can induce labour, the general view is that it will help support the body to prepare and promote relaxation at a time when anxiety levels may often be high.

 

 

Womens' Health and Reflexology.

 

We all experience times when we feel we need a little extra help; puberty, adolescence, exams, the week before your period if you have PMS or leading up to and beyond the menopause. Add into the equation, fluctuating hormone levels and it is not surprising that women need to do something extra to support their well-being.

 

Alongside work, women often find themselves running the home, organising family routines, budgeting and many more tasks too numerous to mention, so stress is a big factor. If stress levels remain high for too long, well-being can be affected causing detrimental effects on the body including changes in some hormone levels. These changes can affect the mind and emotions.

 

Everyone is unique and responds differently to treatment but as a reflexologist I can help reduce the intensity and duration of menstrual pain, improve sleep, PMS and reduce anxiety.

 

Here is a lovely testimonial from one of Marian’s clients..

 

Marian is absolutely lovely, I felt like I had known her for ages.  After an hour of reflexology I felt the most relaxed I had in ages.  Anyone feeling like they need rebalancing or just an hour of pure relaxation I would thoroughly recommend booking an appointment. CH

If you would like to find out more about Reflexology and how it might be able to help you then please do get in touch or book a consultation with Marian, call us on 02380 980777.
