The Ark offers a wide range of complementary therapies:
Sports Massage in Southend and Leigh:
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from a Sports Massage, a unique type of massage that uses trigger point therapy to break down knots in the muscles and increase range of motion.
Whilst it was originally developed to prepare the bodies of athletes to function well during training leading to the optimum performance at the big event, the emphasis is also on prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. Sports Massages can be a little uncomfortable at times but the benefits are undeniable.
Aromatherapy in Southend and Leigh:
These natural plant oils are extracted from plants and possess distinctive therapeutic properties which are especially effective for stress-related problems. They can be applied in various ways, including massage, baths and inhalations.
An Aromatherapy Massage is the perfect destress massage.
Reiki in Southend and Leigh:
A Reiki treatment involves ‘laying on hands’ to tap into the unseen ‘life force energy’ that flows through us and this can administered through clothing with the recipient lying on a couch or in a sitting position.
Indian Head Massage in Southend and Leigh:
Used for centuries by the women of India as a means of keeping their long hair in healthy condition Indian Head Massage involves massaging the scalp to increase sebum production to the hair follicles.
The head massage covers the shoulders, neck, scalp and face and can be performed almost anywhere with the patient fully dressed and seated comfortably. The process helps eliminate muscular tension and is incredibly relaxing, helping the stresses and strains of the day to melt away. An Indian Head Massage is just the thing after a hard day.
Reflexology in Southend and Leigh:
Reflexology is the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. The practice is based on a system of zones and reflex areas on the feet and hands being linked to other areas of the body. Some cultures believe that pressure on these points can bring about a physical change to the body. Whilst there is no Western medical proof of this, Reflexology is a relaxing treatment that promotes a sense of well-being.
