Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage can be traced back over 2,000 years. This is a speciality massage that involves smooth heated stones, which are basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The localised warmth of the stoned allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure to the affected area without causing discomfort. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps release tight muscles.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is a Hindi massage technique. It is a relaxing treatment, which not only massages the head, neck and shoulders but that encompasses accupressure on the face.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.

Thermo-auricular Therapy or Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient therapy, which was practiced by the North American Hopi Indians of Arizona, as a sacred ritual to cleanse and harmonise. Hopi translated is ‘peaceful people’.
Ear candling, also called thermal-auricular therapy. When lit the candle creates a light chimney effect, massaging the ear drum and ear canal through vibration and warmth, drawing out wax and impurities, clearing the ear, sinuses and nose. This helps to balance the pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses, creating a lighter feeling in the ear and head. A soft crackling sound may be heard during the treatment as the candle burns.
