Qi Gong (Qigong or Chi Kung) is an ancient sophisticated form of physiotherapy combining slow movement, posture, breathing and awareness. Qi Gong's gentle but powerful exercises heal the body, and over time increase flexibility, improve immunity and vitality. At a deeper level Qi Gong clears blockages from the energy centres and channels.
Qi Gong complements Massage Therapy extremely well and helps us to slow down. In Chinese hospitals Qi Gong is a primary treatment for many serious health conditions.Hot Stones Massage
Hot stones were used by the American Indians for massage as part of their sweat lodge ceremony. Today they are used in healing and remedial massage. During a treatment the stones are moved over the body in long strokes to encourage their deep heat to penetrate the body.
The heat is particularly good for chronic stiffness, fatigue, aches & pains and mobility problems. The heat increases circulation of blood and lymph and improves the mechanical ability of the muscles and connective tissue to elongate and move.
Cold stones are also used where there is inflammation indicated. The solidity of the stones, their size and weight help to bring us down to earth and feel more supported, bringing a deeply relaxing and warming experience.
