Professional Treatments

CAROLINE MINNIS qualified as a holistic Aromatherapy masseur in Brighton in 1998, and has gained extensive experience in Deep Tissue Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology & Acupressure Facial Massage using her knowledge of Essential Oils. The underlying approach to her treatment methodology is person-centred, such that the client is encouraged to heal themselves both on an outer, physical level and also on a more subtle, yet powerful, inner level. Health and well-being is achieved through the transformative changes we make once the deeper, intuitive energies are tapped, and Caroline uses Body Work, Essential Oils, Meditation, and Chakra Balancing as tools towards a holistic state of harmony.
Initial treatments are always preceded by a thorough Client Consultation, and can last from 30 minutes to 1½ hours depending on the client needs. Follow-up treatments are encouraged. All personal details are treated in the strictest confidence. Both sexes welcome.
Mobile home visits in the Sussex/London areas can be arranged, and other services include Workshops, Talks, Educational Courses (non-certificated), Retreats, Group Work, & Pamper and Leisure Days.

A blend of Essential Oils is made up to suit combination, oily, dry or damaged skin. A deeply relaxing massage leaving your skin feeling toned and nourished.

REFLEXOLOGY
REFLEXOLOGY Reflexology is an ancient Chinese acupressure treatment that works on the basis that electro-magnetic current (or Chi energy) is connected between specific "reflex points" in the feet and target organs and tissues throughout the body via meridian lines. When these points are pressed, energy-flow around the body is stimulated which encourages improved circulation, detoxification and pain relief in the corresponding organs.
This treatment aids the body in its continual striving for balance and self-healing, and is particularly useful for long-term, chronic conditions where allopathic medicine has failed, such as BACK-ACHE, SCIATICA, LUMBAGO, HEADACHES, MIGRAINE, IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME, PMS, HORMONAL IMBALANCES, SINUSITUS, ASTHMA and ARTHRITIS. Reflexology can be helpful for pain-relief in terminally ill clients. Pioneered in the West by William Fitzgerald, this therapy is becoming increasingly popular in conventional health care settings. A detailed client consultation is given before the treatment and the therapy is followed by a Foot Massage using Oils. Follow up treatment is encouraged.
Treatment Time: 1 hour

Techniques include effleurage, petrissage kneading, tapotements, acupressure point stimulations, stretches and head squeezes to induce healthy blood flow, lymphatic drainage, muscular relief, and improved powers of concentration and memory.

Particularly helpful for conditions such as HEADACHES, MIGRAINE, RESPIRATORY CONGESTION, POOR MEMORY, EXHAUSTION, ANXIETY, STRESS and UPPER BACK/NECK MUSCLE PROBLEMS.

CHAKRA BALANCING AND MEDITATIONS
CHAKRA BALANCING AND MEDITATIONS There are 7 major Chakra energy centres in our etheric body running along the vertical axis (and 1000's of others in and around our physical, etheric and astral bodies) which are powerful memory banks for our physical and spiritual well-being. Chakra energy needs to be in a continual state of renewable, dynamic motion for optimal physical and psychological health. We can enhance our vibrational energy flow through the body by tapping in to the sub-conscious mind using creative visualizations, mantras, and meditations. This therapy focuses on the symbols, oils and colours of the 7 Chakras, from the Base "Muladhara" found in the perineum (our earthly roots) up to the Crown "Sahasrara" found at the top of the head (our connection to abundant Spirit). Using a guided visualization, set to music, the client is enabled to relax in to a state of deep calm and clarity, thereby recharging the vital Chi energy flow.
Further details on how Essential Oils work to support this balance are discussed during the session.
Treatment Time: ¾ hour – 1 hour
