My name is Twinney Chapman. I am a fully qualified, Association of Reflexologists insured, holistic therapist. My fascination and interest in the alternative therapies of aromatherapy, reflexology, Indian head and hot stones massage spans over 15 years.
My qualifications are:
The term "Aromatherapy' refers to the therapeutic use of pure essential oils and carrier oils extracted from plants, trees, and grasses of 1st grade extraction and distillation for use in aromatherapy body massage. Just 3 essential oils are selected from a range of oils and are blended in small dilutions in a suitable carrier oil following a consultation that determines the blend a client needs. It's not simply the scent the oils omit (via the olfactory lobes) that is beneficial but the chemical interaction these oils have on systems and organs of the body once there massaged into the skin and transported throughout the body with the ability to stimulate or sedate.
Hot Stone thermogenic massage is carried out with basalt volcanic hot stones. These beautiful stones are smooth and come in various sizes to use on specific areas. Often grey, black or red in colour they are able to retain heat and are placed in a roaster with water and heated to a temperature of 55 degrees celsius, just hot enough to hold in the hand. They are incorporated in the body massage and used in areas that need attention. The combination of heat and light massage strokes not only are very warming and soothing but help to increase circulation, remove toxins and ease tight tense muscles and leave the client feeling very relaxed and calm.
Indian head massage has been practised in India for 1000 of years as part of the Ayurvedic Tradition of "mind body spirit healing". Now modified and popular here "Indian head massage" is used in complementary practises. The treatment works on the the top three chakras - Crown, Brow and Throat. The massage involves the concentration of movements gently applied to the head, neck and shoulders and tops of arms. This treatment can be carried out without the use of oils and the client can remain fully dressed.
A natural holistic therapy involving the simple technique of working with the thumbs and fingers over specific reflex points and organs that are mapped on the feet and hands. Each body system or organ corresponds to a particular area of the body and by working these in a precise and systematic way we assist in the removal of toxins, improved circulation, re-balancing energy pathways and increasing nerve supply, which results in a deeply relaxing treatment and a greater feeling of well being.
