Essential oils have been used for centuries, by many different cultures.  There is an ancient history of the use of plants as medicines as well as within cosmetics and perfumes.  Tree bark, roots, leaves, petals and flowers are just some of the elements of plants where essences can be obtained from.  When taken from plants, the essences are pure and very strong and this is the reason that only 1 or 2 drops of an essential oil are put into a blend, mixed with a carrier oil, like almond or grapeseed oil. Essential oils can be extremely toxic if used incorrectly. There is a recent trend for putting oils directly on […]

Reflexology is a fascinating therapy There are many theories of how reflexology works. There are over 7000 nerve-endings in the feet and one theory is that when these nerves are pressed, nerve messages are sent to and from different, related, areas of the body. Reflexology is quite a complex and in-depth holistic therapy. The reflexology foot chart is a good place to start when learning about reflexology. It locates different zones of the feet that relate to different parts of the body. For instance, the big toe relates to the head and you will find the brain reflex here.   This is the Reflexology Foot Chart designed by the Reflexology […]

FHT-Accredited Pregnancy Massage Training at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty May 14th and 15th, 2018 It’s difficult for massage therapists to decide what training they would like to invest in as there’s just so many courses out there to choose from.  Some massage therapists decided to treat pregnant clients without additional specialist training. As long as therapists are insured, this is ok, although we would like to think that specialist pregnancy massage training gives qualified therapists an edge of knowledge and expertise that the client will respect. I think most of us are finding that clients are more discerning than ever and in my own therapy I have […]

Reflexology Training Course – Is now your time?

Level 3 VTCT-Accredited Reflexology Training Course  in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire Reflexology is the most popular treatment we offer in our holistic practise.  It’s a fascinating therapy that involves stimulating the nerves on the feet or hands (and sometimes ears!). The nerves that are stimulated send a message to corresponding parts of the body.  There are numerous theories as to how Reflexology works. Some theorists say that crystal deposits (waste from cells) settle around nerve endings and when these are cleared the body works more effectively. Other people believe that there are energy meridians in the body that make it function at its best and if the pathways are blocked wellbeing will […]
