Our aim is to go beyond the simple relief of symptoms, which is beneficial in the short term, looking at the underlying causes of the problem. Working with these can lead to longer term relief, or even permanent resolution, as well as helping to improve the quality of your life. We are achieving this by:
•Using natural holistic therapies to enhance the body’s natural self healing abilities.
•Encouraging people to take an active part in improving their health and in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
•Raising awareness of the principles of good health.
•Broadening the range of holistic therapies available in Bentham
•Working in co-operation with other health care professionals.
Marie believes that nothing happens by chance and that symptoms in the body are an expression of an imbalance (dis-ease) somewhere else in your being. She uses touch combined with an inner listening to her centre (her 7th sense) to be guided to the priority areas to be worked with in each session. She then uses her massage skills to help you to release those energies that no longer serve you well. She may also be guided to dowse using Universal Balancing Charts to aid this process.
During the massage, Marie uses touch and pressure – mostly with fingers thumbs and palms, but occasionally with elbows and feet – to release tight, knotted muscles while encouraging conscious, deep relaxation. You remain clothed during the session which can either be a full or half body treatment. She usually combines a half body massage with Standing Reflexology, so that all of your being is reached, acknowledging that you are more than a sore area (a symptom) but a whole being with all of your parts inter-relating.
After any session, you may be given “homework” of exercises (which may be practical, mental, energetic or emotional) to support and supplement the massage you have experienced.
