WELLBEING WITH KERRY

Feel your best on the inside as well as looking your best on the outside

WELLBEING

 

In this fast paced world, we all lead hectic stressful lifestyles and managing your stress is very important, to maintain overall happiness. Sometimes incurring an injury or getting an illness is our body's way of telling us to stop or slow down. Our bodies are very complex and have built in self-healing abilities - from a small cut or bruise, to a more severe injury or emotional crisis. For your body to be able to self-heal, it needs to function properly, therefore it is important to maintain your health.

Many people are concerned about their stress levels and realise this can be the root of many of their other issues. An increasing number of people, who previously relied on drinking or smoking, to de stress them at the end of the day, are shifting towards healthier options such as
 Reiki, meditation, reflexology and yoga. These work by de cluttering the mind and re balancing the flow of energy through the body, bringing us back to a state of wellbeing.


" happiness is determined more by one's state of mind than by external events " - Dalai Lama

 

As an established REIKI Master Teacher, I am qualified in the traditional Usui/Holy Fire Ryoho system. As well as treatments for people, I also provide ANIMAL REIKI for all sizes of animals. The ancient therapy of HOPI EAR CANDLING can help address many ear and face conditions, by stimulating the ear to eliminate excess wax and impurities. In an ever changing industry, I am continually furthering my development and knowledge.

 

 REIKI


Reiki is a non-invasive complementary treatment, which works on every level not just the physical. The vibrational energy re balances the body, cleansing it of toxins and reinforces your body's ability to heal.

Rediscovered in Japan in the early 1900's by the Buddhist monk Dr Mikao Usui, Reiki is made up of two Japanese words; 'Rei' which means 'universal' and 'Ki' which means 'life force energy'. It was bought to the West in the early 1940's and reached Europe in the 1970's. Eastern medicine has always worked with this energy, which flows through all living things, for example with Tai Chi or acupuncture. When the 'life force energy' is flowing freely, people are generally healthier and happier.

What happens during a treatment?

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful energy and is administered by a practitioner who serves as a conduit, through whom the energy can be transmitted. Reiki can enhance everyday living, promoting a state of overall well being or be beneficial in a time of stress, illness or injury. When the flow of 'life force energy' is restricted or blocked, both emotional and health problems tend to occur.

During a treatment, the practitioner places their hands either on or above the recipient in a series of hand positions, enabling the energy to flow through their hands, to where it is needed most. The client is fully clothed and will be asked to lie down on a couch or be seated in a chair, if this more comfortable. The treatment is unique to the individual and may be experienced as a flow of energy, tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations or sometimes nothing at all. The majority of clients either fall asleep or enter a state of deep relaxation.

Reiki energy has no boundaries and can be given in person or over distance. A distance reiki treatment is just as strong, as energy is not bound by distance or time. Reiki is increasingly being used in various locations, including private practice, complementary therapy centres, hospitals, GP surgeries, hospices, cancer support groups, post operative recovery and many more.

What are the benefits?

Reiki works alongside conventional medicine and some of its many benefits are...

  • helps to relieve pain
  • removes energy blockages, re balancing the body
  • deep relaxation, aiding the body to de stress
  • accelerates the healing process after an injury or illness
  • strengthens the immune system
  • increased energy
  • improvement in sleep
  • an overall sense of well being
  • releases past emotion to break behavioral patterns
  • reduces blood pressure


" Just came back from an amazing Reiki session with Kerry, I feel like I've had a really good nights sleep! Kerry's very friendly & professional with a lovely, cosy treatment room. I can't recommend her enough to anybody who needs to de stress & relax especially busy, working mums like me!! x - source facebook, Maria 19th January 2015

"As it was my first visit I was slightly anxious not knowing really what to expect but Kerry made me feel very relaxed straight away by her warm, friendly and very welcoming approach. The Reiki massage was an amazing and enlightening experience and above all melted away the tension and stress that had built up, more than I had realised! For the first time in a while I woke up revived and energised but calm and grounded. I would highly recommend and I shall be visiting again! Thank you Kerry!

 REFLEXOLOGY

 

 

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India & China and was introduced to the West in 1913 by Dr William Fitzgerald as 'zone therapy'. It is based on the principle that reflex areas on the feet, hands & face, map the organs & systems throughout the body. Pressure is applied using a special finger/thumb technique to specific reflex points, which in turn stimulate the body to gradually restore balance naturally. Reflexology can be used to maintain well being or to address specific health issues.

What happens during a treatment?

On the first visit, a full consultation will be taken to assess your health and lifestyle, so the treatment can be tailored to your individual needs. A treatment usually lasts one hour but please leave an extra 20 minutes for your first visit. The treatment is taken in a relaxing La Fuma reclining chair, offering optimum comfort and support. During the treatment imbalances can be identified and working on these points, helps to rebalance the corresponding body part. Most clients experience a great sense of relaxation.

What are the benefits?

Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe but works well alongside conventional medicine and other complementary therapies. It has been shown to address a wide range of health issues including; back pain, headaches/migraines, IBS, sleep issues, hormonal imbalances, injuries, infertility, depression and allergies. This gentle and effective therapy works on the mind, body and spirit, restoring and maintaining the body's natural equilibrium.

Hopi Ear Candling


 

Thermal auricular therapy, is an ancient natural therapy involving the use of ear candles to help address conditions such as excessive or compacted ear wax, glue ear, ringing in the ears, tinnitus, congestion from colds/flu, sinusitis, rhinitis, headaches and migraines. Ear Candling is such a pleasant, relaxing and non-invasive therapy, it is also suitable for children. The treatment also incorporates a complimentary gentle lymphatic drainage massage to the ears, face & neck.


What are Hopi Ear Candles?
 

They are hollow tubes made of unbleached cotton, which are soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. Once lit, the candle works on a chimney principle, causing the warm air inside it to rise, which creates a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear and draws any excess wax and impurities to the surface, to be gently removed. It is important to note that the candle does not suck wax out of the ear; it stimulates the ear to eliminate the wax naturallyensuring maximum safety. In addition, they work to equalise the pressure in the ears.


What happens during a treatment?

The client should lie in a comfortable position on his/her side, with the head supported on a pillow. The lit candle is then inserted carefully into the outer ear, continually supported in a vertical position and the flame is allowed to burn. When the candle has burnt down to within a short distance of the marked red line, it is removed gently and extinguished in some water. The procedure is then repeated with the other ear.

What are the Benefits?

Most clients find the treatment extremely soothing and relaxing and leave with a sense of well-being and reduced pressure in the ears or head. Initially an improvement in hearing, sense of smell and easier nasal breathing can be felt. However, improvements can continue for 24-48 hours after.

My training is certified by the Federation of Holistic Therapists and I use BIOSUN Ear Candles. BioSun have over 20 years of ear candling experience, with only high quality materials used and safety standards which are regularly tested by independent institutes.
