“In 30 years as an osteopath and founder of a natural health centre, I have known Bernadette as a yoga teacher and reiki practitioner. She is just about the best I have met.
Bernadette's reiki work has helped me personally in my recovery from breast cancer, during which time I have not had to resort to surgery or chemotherapy.
9 months ago I was told I needed a radical mastectomy and now when the surgeon examines me, he says he cannot be sure what he is feeling - if anything! Thank you Bernadette!
Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is translated as universal life force and is an ancient healing system, which is said to have originated in Tibet several thousand years ago. It became known in the West in the 1940's.
The client remains fully clothed for treatment and can either be seated or lying. The treatment involves using a range of hand positions either on or just above the body in order to promote healing on every level.
The energy will flow wherever it is needed most. It is a very effective system and most clients tend to enter a state of deep relaxation.
Indian head massage
This treatment has developed from the traditional Indian system of medicine known as Ayurveda. The client remains seated for this treatment, with a towel around the upper chest.
The treatment includes a range of massage strokes on the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, head & face. It is an ideal treatment for people who are more comfortable in a seated position (older clients, limited physical ability, pregnant women) or whose main areas of tension are in the upper body & head.
Indian Head Massage improves blood & energy flow to shoulders, upper back & neck. It can alleviate tension headaches, poor sleep, high bp, mental fatigue & stress. It also improves the immunity and concentration. This makes it an ideal treatment for "computer related pain & tension". It improves the flexibility & mobility and there is a reduction in blood pressure, mental fatigue, pain, anxiety & tension headaches. Concentration and immunity improves and the treatment can help to regulate periods. Clients can opt whether to have oils used in the hair or not.
1 hr treatments are available. Clients may also be given a few yoga techniques to practice to help their condition. Some clients opt to have a one-to-one yoga session & finish with an Indian Head Massage.
Download an information sheet by Bernadette on the benefits of pregnancy massage:
This treatment is very popular. Pregnancy can be a time in a woman's life when various "ailments" arise-such as poor sleep patterns, cramp, blood pressure changes, heartburn, sciatica, anxiety & fear, to name a few!
Some women are fortunate enough not to experience much in the way of ailments and instead relish the opportunity to let go & enjoy some "me" time. It incorporates all the techniques used for a regular full body massage and lots of supports are used during the treatment to ensure that the client is at her most comfortable.
Each consultation also gives the client an opportunity to express herself in a supportive environment and because of Bernadette's wide and lengthy experience as a pregnancy yoga teacher she can offer techniques to help alleviate most conditions or to advise about diet, lifestyle, etc.
Ayurvedic Foot Massage (padabhyanga)
Ayurveda is India's ancient holistic healing science and is more than 10.000 years old. The term Ayurveda consists of 2 words Ayu-life and Veda-science.
Padabhyanga Is significantly prominent in the field of preventative medicine, yet also helpful in the treatment of illness.
It is one of a broad based set of tools for healing, which takes into consideration different body types or constitutions, called Doshas. It is by balancing the 3 doshas of an individual's constitution that health is maintained
Padabhyanga adresses the following:
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Helps prevent sciatica
- Aids foot health-alleviates pain, improves muscle tone and nourishes the skin
- Helps maintain eyesight & hearing
improves cramp and circulation
- A modified sequence is beneficial to babies from 3 months old in order to maintain the balance of the doshas
Feet provide the connection of the individual with the Earth energy via grounding. There are many nerve endings in the feet which eminate from organs in the body. Via massage these nerves are strengthened and health can be restored to many parts of the body.Integral to Ayurvedic practice is the stimulation of certain marma points on the feet and legs in order to either release or dispel stagnant energy or to stimulate or energise.
Treatments are performed whilst the client lies back or up on a massage couch, fully clothed but with feet and lower legs accessible. A small bronze "Kasa" bowl is also used in the massage routine as well as hands. The treatment takes around 1hr to complete.
Hot / Cold Stones Chakra massage
Stone massage is thought to have originated in India & China over 3000 years ago. In Native North American traditions, basalt stones have been used for centuries for healing, protection and ritual purposes.
As with all other treatments offered, a detailed consultation takes place to ascertain the most appropriate treatment and combination of stones for each individual.This treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, diabetics or for those on blood thinning medication. For medically controlled high blood pressure or epilepsy, GP clearance is recommended.
The use of stones of various temperatures, sizes and composition can be used to treat a number of common complaints. Hot basalt stones are used to expand blood vessels and relax muscles, thuse enabling a deeper treatment. A combination of deep compression, passive stretching, joint mobilty and acupressure may be used to enhance flexibilty and circulation, and balance energy.
Cold marble stones may also be used for inflamed areas in order to constrict blood flow to certain areas. Cold stones also stimulate the nervous system and increase lymph flow It is a good treatment for sports injury related issues as it can help to facillitate recovery.
Sometimes both hot and cold stones are used simultaneously, either for placement on the body or used for massaging. Larger stones are placed on major energy centres (chakras), in order to improve energy flow. Crystals are also used for this purpose.
