Business Description

Here is a quick guide to the most popular types of Treatments offered at Smiles Natural Therapies

Reflexology

Reflexology is an alternative health therapy which uses the application of pressure using fingers and thumbs techniques to the feet, hands or ears. Reflexology is based on the principle that the entire body is reflected on the feet, hands and ears. The reflexes in the feet, hands and ears correspond to all glands, organ and other parts of the body.

Reflexologists have sensitive, trained hands that can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, hand and ears. By working on these points this pressure can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole entire body.

Relaxation Massage

It is also known as Swedish massage or simply massage therapy. Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy with the addition of one or more scented plant oils called essential oils to address specific needs.

Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to stress-related conditions or conditions with an emotional component.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman’s individual needs.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing and destressing massage of the scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Oil to the scalp is optional. The treatment incorporates shiatsu and acupressure techniques on the head, scalp, face, neck, upper back, shoulders, arms, ears and hands, helping to relax tense areas and re-balance the body energy by releasing any areas of negativity or stress

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The Lymphatic or “Lymph” System is the garbage disposal system of the body. It is often referred to as the “second circulatory system” and flows throughout the entire body.

The Lymphatic System is a major part of the immune system. It is through the Lymphatic System that toxic substances are expelled the body through the bloodstream.

Trained therapists use the technique (Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD) to stimulate circulation through the lymph vessels and ducts around the body. Its effects and benefits are profound and many can give credence to its powerful effect.
