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.
A Reiki treatment feels like a 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.
Music has been used throughout history to create positive effects on our mood and as a form of therapy to heal the body, mind, and spirit. Many people find that after practicing sound healing techniques, they experience an increase in energy, improved mental clarity, increased creativity, and better relationships.
Sound healing is the use of specific instruments, music, tones, and other sonic vibrations to balance and heal the body, mind, and spirit. It involves using specialised sound frequencies to create a therapeutic atmosphere to promote deep rest, nervous system rebalancing, and emotional release.
We offer sound healing in 1;1 settings, or in group classes.
Crystal Therapy is a gentle and non-invasive treatment. The crystals use their own natural power to improve health, well being, and restore balance at all levels. Crystals are placed on the chakras, or around the body to activate and support the natural self healing process. The crystals will to help unblock, focus and direct energy.
The proposed healing benefits of crystals predominantly surround areas of mental wellbeing; including feelings of increased tranquility, positivity and focus, as well as enhanced immunity and natural pain relief.
Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet. It’s based on a theory that these areas on the feet are connected to certain organs and body systems. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet and by working on these points the Reflexologist can release blockages and restore a free flow of energy to the whole body. Circulation is enhanced and tensions are eased.
Reflexologists believe that applying pressure to these parts offers a range of health benefits including relaxation, boosting circulation, preventing migraines, aiding sleep, relieving depression, relieving pain, improved nerve function, and much more.
Deep Tissue Massage
Cherry is our deep tissue massage expert!
Her style of deep tissue massage uses a blend of techniques including Chinese Medical Massage (tui na), Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, and Neuromuscular Release. Cherry uses a combination of advanced techniques, including basic spinal manipulations, to gently loosen joints, lengthen tendons and soften muscles. Giving a highly effective treatment which treats joints, muscles and other connective tissue.
The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
A therapeutic cupping treatment involves warming and placing cups, made of glass, on the skin. By warming the air within the cup, a vacuum is created, and when it is applied to the skin, the tissue is drawn up into the cup. This increases the blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue, and is thought to stimulate healing.
Cupping allows blood and Qi energy to flow much more freely through your body than previously. This non-invasive treatment is great for improving the health of your vital organs and reducing swelling and pain caused by inflammation. Consider it a one-stop anti-inflammatory treatment for all your aches and pains.
Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain.
We offer Gua Sha as either a massage or facial.
Hot Stone Massage
The ultimate relaxation! During a hot stone massage, the techniques of a regular massage are applied. However, the therapist also works with hot stones that are placed on specific parts of the body.
The stones are basalt rock type and are smooth and flat. These particular stones are chosen because they retain heat.
Hot stone massage is comforting and deeply relaxing, but will also give the following benefits:
Improvement of blood circulation
Relaxation of tight muscles
Relieve muscle tension and pain
Relaxation of the mind
Reduced stress and anxiety
The Bowen technique is a complementary therapy first used in the 1950s. It uses a mix of energetic redirecting and pressure point massage to help the body find balance and harmony as a whole. It gently targets the muscles and fascia in the entire body, and is suitable for anyone, including pregnant women.
Although Bowen uses hands-on moves that are very similar to Swedish Massage, it also involves a lot of “hands-off” time during the treatment, where the therapist leaves the room or steps away for up to two minutes. This is because it isn’t the manipulation itself that’s considered to effective, but the individual connection between body and brain. By drawing attention to an area, and then pausing any stimulus in the area, the brain is forced to re-engage and kickstart the healing process.
A life coach is a type of wellness professional who helps people make progress in their lives in order to attain greater fulfilment. Life coaches aid their clients in improving their relationships, careers, and day-to-day lives. At transcend we marry energy healing, mindfulness and talking techniques to deliver a structured, growth orientated coaching process that can be life changing for anyone willing to commit to the process.
Card readings are one of the many divination tools used to connect with our spiritual guides and to ourselves. For centuries people have been using cards to gain insight into their lives. Having a card reading is not just about predictions nor fortune telling. These are used to inquire about what things that are in your best interest. We are all cosmic beings and unfortunately, we do not come to this earth with a how-to manual or a map to help navigate through this life. This is where intuitive card reading comes in, as it can serve as a map or manual to help guide you to exactly where it is you are trying to get to.
