Hello there… I'm Maggie, complementary therapist with The Warren.
When the chaos of the world becomes too loud or heavy on your shoulders, I'll help you find some peace and calm.
I provide a holistic approach to the Young People of the Warren encompassing some relaxation and mindfulness techniques, massage therapy, Reiki, Reflexology and more recently, Sound Bathing using Tibetan Singing bowls.
These therapies help soothe and calm the mind and body …. why don't you try one of them ?
Massage works by pushing down on nerve cell receptors under the skin, activating the nervous system and stimulating the release of mood-enhancing chemicals such as dopamine or serotonin. Massage also stimulates the release of natural endorphins, creating a natural high and relieving the body of any pain as well as generating a calming effect through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, and reduces the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline , both of which are usually high in times of stress.
Reflexology is based on the idea that different points on your feet and hands are linked to other parts of your body through your nervous system. A reflexology session involves gentle pressure being applied to these points as a way to relieve tension, improve mood and help you to sleep.
Reiki is a Japanese technique which involves the 'laying of hands' on different areas of the body including the head, stomach and feet. It's based on the idea that we have vortexes or wheels of energy constantly rotating within our bodies and when we are unwell, be it physically, psychologically, emotionally or spiritually, these wheels of energy become imbalanced. Reiki helps bring these wheels back into line, balancing our body and mind.
Sound Bathing is the practice of being deeply immersed in the sounds and vibrations of Tibetan Singing bowls. Experiencing a sound bath is taking a holistic approach to relaxation and healing. It can be a perfect escape from the modern stresses of life. . Sound has a great influence on our emotions and health and can make us feel happy, energised and relaxed.
