Therapies at Yoga Akasha

Thai massage with Jody

Thai massage has been described as having a yoga practice done to you! It is a very relaxing treatment as while you focus on your breath your therapist gently but firmly stretches your body. Tension is released, leaving you with a sense of peace and harmony, bringing your mind and body closer to a place of balance. Sessions are £50 for 1 hour

Reflexology with Yvonne

Many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress. This lovely relaxing treatment uses pressure techniques and massage to stimulate the reflex points on your feet encouraging the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance. Regular reflexology gives a boost to all the body’s systems and is therefore a very useful preventive treatment. As a general rule, if you are well then reflexology can help you stay healthy, if you are unwell, it may help you recover and maintain your health. Sessions are £35 for 3/4 hour.

Cranial Osteopathy with Martin

Martin graduated from the British School of Osteopathy and then studied at the Osteopathic Centre for Children. He has over 15 years’ experience in the treatment of adults, babies and children.

He specialises in a very gentle form of cranial work known as Bio – dynamic osteopathy. This approach can treat all conditions in adults and children but is particularly suitable for newborn babies who may be suffering from the effects of a stressful or complicated delivery, for instance those involving forceps, vountouse intervention or emergency c-section. Treatment is also recommended for pregnant women to remove any restrictions that may hinder or complicate the birth and for new mothers whose bodies have not recovered from the effects of giving birth.

From July 2016 Martin will be seeing clients at Yoga Akasha on Saturdays, 2.00-4.00

What is Massage?

Massage involves the manipulation of soft tissue structures of the body to alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm and stress; and to promote health and wellbeing. Massage can relieve deeply held tensions in the muscle tissues so that the blood circulation is improved, digestion is aided and the lymphatic system works more effectively. Massage is a natural drug-free cure, promotes a feeling of wellbeing and revitalisation, and is effective for men, women and children of all ages.
