From the orient comes the secret of releasing stress from our minds and bodies, completely rejuvenating ourselves and rediscovering our inner balance.


By harmonising the body, mind and spirit through the conscious assimilation of balanced cosmic energy, Reiki promotes focused self-awareness and individual development through the heart. Reiki, meaning Universal Life Energy, is a holistic practice which helps free blocked energy and rebalance the interaction between the mind and body. It boosts vitality and creates a deep feeling of peace and inner calm. The Reiki technique, which is Japanese in origin, reduces stress, improves relaxation and increases physical and moral wellbeing.
Although it is not a replacement for or an alternative to traditional medicine, Reiki is often categorised as a “complementary therapy”to be used alongside it.

Foot Reflexology

Reflexology, or the practice of massaging parts of the feet, is part of natural medicine. This simple but effective manual technique is designed to help restore and maintain health; it consists of applying pressure with the thumbs to the soles of the feet. Reflexology is based on the principle that the soles of the feet are a map corresponding to individual bodily functions and organs. By applying pressure to the feet, the body’s energy balance is restored and common complaints can be prevented.
It uses the principles of traditional Chinese medicine as well as maps of the reflex points, endorsed by decades of practice in medicine and rehabilitation.

Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Oil Massage

Thai massage dates back 2,500 years. It combines work on the pressure points featured in Chinese medicine with the stretching and key positions found in Indian yoga. It eases tense muscles and stiff joints, creating a deep feeling of lightness and relaxation for both clients and practitioners, aiding spiritual elevation and boosting suppleness and flexibility.

Thai Foot Massage

Hot Stone

Hot Stone Massage takes its name from the basalt stones which are heated in water at approximately 70°C and placed on particular energy centres around the body.
It is designed to help relax the mind and body.
