The study of embryology teaches us the principle “wholeness is our conception right”.
Full body massage releases muscular tension and relaxes the nervous system. The movements increase blood and lymph flow, improve metabolism, assist the breaking down of unwanted toxins, and help to release life stresses. During the massage normally sweet almond oil is in use.
After an initial consultation, homeopathic remedies are prescribed to stimulate and enhance our natural curative properties. These are completely safe and in most cases can be used in conjunction with mainstream treatments.
