REFLEXOLOGY AND REIKI AT GRACEVILLE PHYSIOTHERAPY
Supporting body, mind and lifestyle balance in conjunction with your wellness program.
Reflexology: is a non-invasive application of pressure to the feet, hands and ears with fingers thumbs or knuckles can stimulate a healing response in the corresponding part of the body. Gentle stimulation of the reflex points and applying soothing massage techniques stimulates circulation, can reduce pain and oedema, is deeply relaxing, and helps to release tension and stress.
Treatments are conducted fully clothed, either seated or laying back down on the table, so are suitable for anyone with restricted mobility, or that may not be comfortable with undressing for a full body massage.
Rebates are available for Reflexology through many health funds (check the list at https://www.reflexology.org.au/RAoA/reflexology/healthfund-rebate-list and retain your receipt to claim).
Reiki: (pronounced ‘Ray – kee’) is a Japanese word, which in essence means universal life force energy. It is a gentle, hands-on healing technique that aids deep relaxation to reduce stress and improve natural energy flow. Working in conjunction with Reiki, Seichim (pronounced “Say-keem”), is a gentle, living light energy. Your practitioner Jess Woodside facilitates Reiki and Seichim energy, placing her hands directly on, or just above each of the seven chakra positions, as well as anywhere on your body that needs support. The energy is able to penetrate the body at a deep cellular level; it is drawn to where it is needed and accelerates your own innate healing ability. During your treatment you may feel warmth from your practitioner’s hands, experience a range of feelings, tingling, waves of energy, bubbles, stomach gurgling, or just feel very relaxed. You may fall asleep, and perhaps stay asleep for the whole treatment. All of these are fine.
Private health fund rebates are not available for Reiki.
Aromatherapy: Essential oils have been used for centuries as a gentle and effective form of natural therapy to stimulate, balance and calm. Essential oils are diffused, and used by Jess on feet and/or hands during a Reflexology treatment.
Your favourite oils and aromatherapy diffusers are available for purchase in the practice, or by special order.
- Bookings for Reflexology and/or Reiki are by appointment only.
- These are complementary therapies that do not interfere with, but support other therapies and wellness practices, treating the whole person as an individual, unblocking the natural flow and directing healing energy to where it is most needed for healthy maintenance.
- Treatments are NOT a substitute for medical or psychological care, or the treatment of acute injuries. Your practitioner will not diagnose conditions, prescribe medicines, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.JESS WOODSIDE – Reflexologist & Reiki Practitioner
