A style of massage that uses stronger pressure; slow, deep strokes; and friction across the muscle grain to release chronic muscle tension.  We, having experienced over 11 years in practise, do not subscribe to the belief that ‘Harder is Better’.  We constantly communicate with the client on how the pressure feels and employ respectful techniques so that deeper relief is achieved without excessive and unnecessary pain.

Unifying Balance

(Clears the body’s energy/electrical field of blocks)
Unifying Balance is a

Hands-off energy therapy which is similar to older healing methods but it’s MUCH MORE potent.

It’s designed to shift pain, suffering, anger, fear, anxiety, overwhelming stress, feeling directionless, non-coping, powerlessness and negative beliefs passed on from others and from our own experiences which reside in many levels of our energy fields around our body.

“Unifying Balance, or nicknames U-Balance, spring cleans your body and energy” and carries away the junk which we’ve accumulated over the years. ~ Emotional junk we just don’t need!  Then you can be free to redecorate with the new ‘mod-cons’ of freedom and fresh ideas to take you boldly forward.

Chakra Activation (and balancing)

When one (or more) of the chakra is blocked and the energy does not flow harmoniously through them, or if they are over active ~ it can result in imbalance that is manifested in areas of life.

Each chakra is expressed on the physical body in one of the endocrine glands.

These nerves and hormones regulate physical and emotional processes in the body.

Stef holds some of the main Chakra points gently and helps to promote or dampen their processes – depending what is needed, leaving you feeling lighter, calmer and more balanced.
