What do you mean when you say Holistic?
AnswerDealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part: By offering a holistic treatment we are in no way discounting modern medicine or treatments we like to look at the whole Situation all the symptoms and were they may originate and what affect that may have had on the client to enable us to come up with a whole answer to achieve the very best result. We may offer laser hair removal (a modern answer to hair removal) to someone who has polasistic ovaries for example but we cant leave it there as if we don’t resole the ovary issue the hair will just return over and over again so we also recommend dietary supplements, essential oils and other more traditional treatments to help balance the hormones to try to relive the issue at source. This is what we mean by a holistic approach , we are not discounting any treatment just because it isn’t ancient we would research its safety and if fully satisfied include where needed.
What is Aromatherapy?
What is a Swedish massage?
AnswerIn Sweden, “Swedish massage” is simply known as “classic massage”. And that is exactly what it is — a classic treatment which represents the western standard for massage. The five main techniques used in Swedish massage — stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration — are probably what spring to mind when you think about a “typical” massage
What is Lymphatic drainage?
AnswerLymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage treatment. The massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system and helps fight infection. Lymph itself is a clear, slightly yellow fluid. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. You have around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels in your body. However, unlike blood, which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. The pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around.
What is a Trigger point?
AnswerThe trouble with myofascial pain is that the problem is not in the place that hurts!
Does your body feel like a toxic waste dump?
It may be more literally true than you realized! Some evidence shows that a knot may be a patch of polluted tissue: a nasty little cesspool of waste metabolites. If so, it’s no wonder they hurt, and no wonder they cause so many strange sensations: it’s more like being poisoned than being injured. Back pain is the best-known symptom of the common muscle knot, but they can cause an astonishing array of other aches and pains. Misdiagnosis is much more common than diagnosis.

What is Ko Bi Do?
The Ko Bi Do, known as Kobido or facial massage, is a branch of ANMA, a traditional Japanese massage therapy. Its origin is uncertain and goes back to China around 7.000 years ago. It has been developed and then introduced in Japan around the beginning of 5th century AD, taking the Japanese name “Anma”.
The word “Anma” is literally translated into “pressure” (an) and “friction” (ma). Basically, it means “press and rub” that is the ancient Japanese massage Samurai used to practice to restore the body free movement through manipulative and energetic techniques aimed at recovering a physical and mental balance.
The Kobido experience was established in 1472 in Japan. The empress at the time asked for a special care to enhance and keep her beauty unchanged over the time, creating a specific treatment which was not only an exclusivity for Samurai.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
What is Intuitive Healing?
AnswerIntuitive healing is an alternative practice that relies on the use of the five senses to locate and correct imbalances in the energy flow within the body. Sometimes referred to as insight healing, the practice does not require any type of invasive procedure. Visualisation and focused thinking are often key components in the intuitive healing process. With the assistance of the practitioner, the patient is helped to visualize the blockage and slowly begin to break that blockage down. This may be accomplished by envisioning that the blockage is being dismantled piece by piece, or that the blockage is subjected to healing light and slowly begins to melt away. Whatever the imagery used, the end result is the energy path is clear of any obstruction once again, and the body will soon be back in balance.
What is Energy Healing (Aura and Chakra Healing)?
AnswerThis is one of the most profound and fundamental alternative therapies in the field of alternative medicine and holistic health. It employs spiritual healing methods which expand the awareness of the energy healer and uses energy, color and light healing techniques to catalyze healing in the patient’s energy field (aura and charka system) – helping the patient’s break free from afflictions and limitations of body, mind and spirit. It may provide enhanced quality of life for the patient, and facilitate spiritual growth. Energy healing is often a powerful spiritual path for the practitioner, as well.
What is Chios Energy Healing?
AnswerChios Energy Healing is one of the newest – yet one of the most comprehensive – of the energy healing arts in the world today. Energy healing is based upon the premise that illness or affliction in the body, emotions, mind and spirit has as its ultimate cause defects in the higher energy field surrounding the body. This energy field is composed of the seven charkas and the seven layers of aura. This energy field is the higher “pattern” which mirrors conditions in the body, emotions, mind and spirit of each person – and must be itself healed, for true physical, emotional and psychological/spiritual healing to take place.
What is Distance Healing?
AnswerEnergy healing can be accomplished at a distance just as easily as in person. Prayer is the simplest form of distance healing, and it has been demonstrated that prayer is effective in facilitating healing. An energy healer can sense the energy field of the person receiving the healing and provide healing equally effectively if the person is in the same room or across the world. Many have had the experience of a kind of telepathic connection with someone else in which one senses what is happening with the other person. An energy healer doing distance healing can sense the presence of the healee and affect the healee’s energy field through this same kind of “sensing”.
