Reflex Massage ~ Ayurvedic Foot and Leg Treatments
This treatment aims to work the Marma points on the feet and lower legs that traditionally in Ayurvedic Medicine have related to the many of the body systems. Gently warmed Ayurvedic oil is placed on the lower leg and foot using a special reflex massage technique. The oil is then further encouraged to penetrate the skin by the use of the heated metal Kasa Wand foot massager. This is a truly unique experience which is tailored especially to your requirements. The treatment and relaxation takes 90 minutes and is just pure luxury.
A shorter Reflex Massage using Avocado Oil Balm of either Hands or Feet 30 or 45 minutes can be taken this is particularly great as a gift voucher for a friend or relative (£29 or £39). For more information
VRT ~ Vertical Reflexology Therapy for Hands or Feet
The Booth Method of VRT (also known as Vertical Reflex Therapy) developed by Lynne Booth over a period of 20 years is a form of reflexology where the hands or feet are worked in a weight-bearing position for short periods, providing an intensive level of treatment that can aid general well-being, relieve tension in the body and bring about a state of relaxation throughout the body.
VRT can be part of the full 90 minute Hand and Foot Reflexology session or you can simply ask for a 30 minute treatment to include VRT. Call Dr Melanie Jones PhD to discuss your requirements 07896 047 660
Facial or Face Reflexology
Facial Reflexology aims to work the Marma points on the face, head, neck and upper chest that traditionally in Ayurvedic Medicine have been used to relieve stress aid relaxation and effect a beneficial health effect on the human body. pecial preparation of Tridoshic Ayurvedic oil containing herbs and spices in a delicate floral balance is gently warmed and massaged into the face and neck and head and can be put onto the hair as well if requested.
Two warmed bronze metal Kasa Wands are used to help the delicate oils penetrate the facial skin. For more information click here.
Korean Ear Reflexology is based on the same principles as Chinese Auricular Acupuncture but again is needle free. The theory is that the ear has many zones which relate to various parts of the body. In Ear Reflexology the points on the ear which relate to your individual requirements are treated with Tourmaline pellets. These are attached to the ear and pressed at will. Clients have found this technique particularly useful for Stopping Smoking, Weight Management and Phobias.
The first treatment takes 1 hour and you pay for just 1 hour plus the number of pellets required for your individual requirements. Thereafter the total treatment time is 14 days and during this time once you have seen how and where to attach the Tourmaline seed pellets you can then attach them yourself. A great complementary self-help, cost effective therapy. For more information.
Nerve reflexology utilises a specific pressure technique to target and precisely impact various parts of the nervous system.
A Nerve Reflexologist has therefore extended their skills to include specific additional techniques for use in both acute and chronic pain states. Dr Melanie Jones PhD trained with Nico Pauly and qualified with a diploma in Nerve Reflexology. Call 07896 047 660 to get more information about this unique treatment. For more imformation, please click here.

Japanese Reiki & Kekko Massage
Japanese Reiki is exceptionally relaxing and is one of those treatments that defies explanation in any great detail. Really you should try it yourself and assess the benefits to you as an individual. Generally the treatment is 90 minutes and though it does not involve self-help afterwards many people report a deep sense of calm which pervades for many weeks after their treatment.
Melanie’s teacher is trained by Tadao Yamaguchi and as such the techniques used in your treatment are pure, simple and originate directly from the Usui method. If you wanted to learn how to treat yourself then Melanie’s teacher Gisela Stewart runs a course twice a year at Paradise Clinic in Kemnay. For more information, please click here.
Hot Stones Massage
Hot stones have been used therapeutically for thousands of years to enhance the benefits of massage.
These smooth stones help create the most relaxing, comforting and indulgent form of massage, as inspired by Native American, Egyptian and Ayurvedic traditions.
