BIOSYNC
        Biosync is a unique, incredibly powerful and healing bodywork. Essentially Biosync is a methodology of unwinding muscles and tissue to lengthen and release, allowing us to live in the full potential of our body, pain-free. The practitioner’s whole body (feet, elbows, hands) are used with specific techniques to focus the force of chi through profoundly deep tissue release, stretching to free the tissue on a cellular level. Aside from our physical being, we store our trauma, emotions and negative experiences in our bodies. We are a walking history of the beauty and turmoil of each moment which in time contracts, shortens and thickens our tissue. You may notice that a particularly stressful time at work caused an ulcer, an argument with a loved one caused a pain in the neck or a traumatic injury resulted in scar tissue. These issues left unaddressed causes dysfunction in our system. Biosync goes beyond the realms of massage into the presence of a truly mind, body and spiritually transformational bodywork.

REIKI
       This form of hands-on (or above) Energy Healing does not involve any massage techniques. The receiver is fully clothed and the practitioner either places hands discretely on or above the receiver working over the entire body to unblock energetic stagnation, raise the qi flow and allow healing energy to flow into the recipients' energy field. Each client will have their own unique experience in the shifting of energy, however generally the result is a feeling of calmness and peace.
 
 
Top tip for the massage connoisseur...
      Ask for the abdominal massage to be included in your treatment.  Our stomach and abdomen area stores tension, memories and feelings which need a little encouragement to be processed. Abdominal massage can potentially help with digestive problems (including irritable bowel syndrome), constipation, relieving anxiety and female reproductive issues. It's also perfect for the frequent flier, bringing the internal organs into balance with the external environment.
 
*Of course, if you have a medical condition, always check with your doctor that massage is an appropriate complementary therapy.
      
Note:
Reiki is the underlying energy healing used in every treatment.
