"The Ultimate Renewal" session

The "Ultimate Renewal" transforms your regular reflexology session to create the ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation experience. This session starts out with hand massage, followed by hot stone massage on your legs, and 60 minutes of foot reflexology.

The heat from the stones quickly opens the energy pathways to make this treatment an extremely relaxing and deeply rejuvenating full body treatment. It is estimated that one stroke with a stone is worth five strokes with the hand, thus hot stone reflexology is calculated to be five times deeper and last five times longer than a conventional reflexology session.

Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage

Ayurveda is a word originating from Sanskrit meaning the science of life and longevity. This massage focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms. It is very relaxing, and has a balancing effect, creating a sense of peace and wellbeing. It can be performed with or without oil. You can remain fully clothed during the massage or if you would prefer the use of oils, a towel can be wrapped around you. You will start in a seated position and for the final relaxation lay down on your back.

The oils used in Indian Head massage are:
Sesame Oil – Rich in vitamin E, iron, calcium. It can help relieve aches, pains, and stiffness, while improving skin texture. It nourishes, strengthens, protects the hair, and may also promote hair growth and reduce graying.

Sunflower oil - Its high levels of linoleic acid provide a cleansing effect and help stimulate quicker cell turnover rate, creating smoother, softer, more radiant skin. It stimulates hair follicle growth to grow and strengthen the hair.

Reiki

Reiki treatments are currently being used in several medical centres in Canada, and over 800 hospitals in the US, as part of the standard hospital care. It is a holistic technique that returns us to balanced functioning of the physical, mental, and emotional levels.

Reiki practice doesn’t address the symptom or the condition directly in the way conventional medicine does, rather it balances the person's whole systems. People report feeling greater sense of clarity, and profound calm, which enhances our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

Reiki can be helpful to people who are addressing a wide range of health conditions such as headaches, insomnia, back pain, cancer, heart disease, chronic pain, depression and anxiety. It may even be used to help recovery of injuries and surgery. Reiki safely combines with and supports any medical intervention including surgery, medications, radiation or chemotherapy and physical therapy.

What is a "birth reflexology" session?

...

Touch is a very powerful tool that contributes to a quicker, and more comfortable birth.  Reflexology is described as ‘nature’s tranquillizer’, as it promotes production of endorphins and natural oxytocin, the ‘love hormone’ that play a primary role in the birth process. 

Receiving reflexology during your birthing time is helpful for both partners, and the baby.  Done in a room with the lights dimmed, and relaxing music playing both parents notice their nervous system calms, they feel relaxed, it is easier to tap into their strength, tune into their bodies, their baby and each other.  Moms report contraction pain is decreased, and they find a renewed sense of energy.  Labour tends to progress faster after a session, and babies cope better with contractions.

A “birth day” reflexology session is most often done in early labour once contractions begin.  This is a customized reflexology session based on the Moms laboring needs.  Points will be taught to her partner, doula, midwife or nurse to help enhance the session throughout her birthing time. 

In office rates $75 per hour

Client in home rates (includes travel) $85 - 90 per hour

In hospital rates (includes travel, parking) $100 - 110 per hour
