I am now offering a 15-minute Auricular Therapy treatment that can be added to your massage or reiki session when you want to benefit from a little extra holistic treatment, but don’t want to opt for the full 1 hour foot reflexology session. This add-on treatment will leave you feeling profoundly relaxed with a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
What is it?
Auricular Therapy works in a similar way to reflexology, except it is carried out on the ears rather than the hands or feet. All energy meridians (or energy pathways) converge on the ear and massage on specific points of the ear can activate these meridians, regulating chi (energy), stimulating the function of organs, boosting circulation and improving the movement of lymph.
Is it new?
The ear has been used to diagnose ailments and to treat the body therapeutically for thousands of years. Ancient writings indicating manipulation of the ear for therapeutic treatment date from the earliest civilisations of Egypt and China. Techniques and theories evolved over the centuries until a French doctor in the second half of the 20th century introduced the pattern of auricular points used today.
Is it for me?
On the occasions when you would like the benefit of a holistic re-balancing of your systems, but still want to have time for a thorough massage treatment, you can opt for a 15-minute Auricular
Therapy treatment at the end of your session.
An Auricular Therapy treatment will also blend well with reiki for a holistic, deeply relaxing experience.
