The art of Angel Healing by connecting with Archangels to assist with healing. Angels can guide the client in the right direction for healing and their life path.

Aromatherapy is a wonderful and powerful therapeutic treatment which combines the essential oils of plants with massage. Aromatherapy relaxes and supports you on all levels : mind, body and spirit. Aromatherapy can help with a range of conditions e.g. skin problems, depression, respiratory ailments, insomnia or anxiety. Aromatherapy is used to treat sprains and strains, headaches, digestive problems and sinusitis. Regular aromatherapy treatments will boost the immune system, raise energy levels and instill a feeling of well being. Our course teaches knowledge of 30 essential oils and how to blend them for safe use in massage. The treatment is essentially a cleansing, lymph drainage massage combined with the use of essential oils which makes for a highly effective and powerful treatment on many levels.
A Massage Candle for use in Flambissage is a type of pre-blended aromatherapy oil for use in massage. The massage candles are specially blended using only pure essential oils and natural plant waxes including soya, Jojoba oil and coconut oil add a tactile and luxury feel to this warm wax massage. This special wax blend has very low melting point, around 4oC which is like warm bathwater. It is therefore safe to use and will not burn the skin.
Chakra Balancing is the use of energy to re-set and re-align the energetic vibrations of the body to restore the optimum vibrational level. This in turn brings about a balance of the equilibrium of the body, and this can be the key to healing the energetic body and, in turn, the physical body. Chakra Balancing can therefore heal the person on every level – mind, body and spirit. Knowledge of the Aura and Chakras and the subtle energy of the human body are included on this course, and also the use of pendulums and dowsing rods to check the energy field and to realign/balance it.
Colour Therapy is a subtle, non-invasive, therapy using the healing energy contained in the visible rays of colour. Colour Therapists aim to bring about balance of energies of colour in the human in order to promote harmony and balance between the body, mind and spirit. When this balance occurs are we able to work towards a state of perfect health. Colour Therapy is a complementary therapy, which works well with many other methods of treatments. However there are many cases where colour therapy has worked while other methods of treatment have not produced the desired effect.
Crystal Healing relies on the belief that a person is a complex interaction of energy. It focuses on removing energy imbalances or blocks from the subtle energies of the body (usually known as the aura). Crystals belong to the Mineral kingdom; they emit powerful vibrations and frequencies that can affect our whole being. They can balance and attune the body, mind and spirit. In a Crystal Healing treatment we use a crystal pendulum to check the balance of the chakras and crystal wands to cleanse the aura. We then place crystals on the chakras to balance the chakra system. Crystals are an effective tool for balancing the subtle energies of the body and helping to relieve physical symptoms.
In addition to the skills learned on the Basic course this Advanced course also includes: Recap on the Basic Crystal Healing course and treatment More crystals Meditation Further healing technique Self-healing Absent (distant) healing Manifesting Divination Assessment – case studies and Assessment Questions Course pre-requisites: OUR Crystal Healing, Basic course

Nerve endings are soothed and the complexion will look smoother and more relaxed. Layers of tension are lifted away, leaving your client truly relaxed and floating on air
Dr Bach, who discovered Flower Essences, used a metaphor to describe how the remedies work. “They are able, like beautiful music, or any gloriously uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our Souls: and by that very act, to bring us peace, and relieve our sufferings.’ Just as a beautiful sunset or a photograph can move us so that we feel more at peace, so taking a remedy uplifts us in a gentle way and helps us be the best we are. There are many theories about the mechanism the remedies used to achieve this. Most believe the active ingredient in the remedies is a kind of energy or vibration that is transferred from the living flower to the water during the process of making the mother tinctures.
Himalayan Salt Stone Massage uses warm salt crystal stones to soothe away stress and tension and promote an increased sense of wellbeing. Salt has grounding properties which help to improve sleep and balance the Central Nervous System. Himalayan Salt Stone Massage supports “Electromagnetic Overload” from electronic devices. Additionally, the stone’s natural salt properties gently exfoliate the skin, resulting in naturally smooth and silky skin, reducing signs of aging. Himalayan Salt provides 84 essential mineral & trace compounds which can be absorbed through the skin, keeping it healthy.
Ear candles are not “normal” candles but are hollow tubes made using organic cotton or flax, pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs and essential oils. Ear candling has become a popular therapy in the west and is used to help a wide range of symptoms, not only those associated with the ears. The treatment also engenders a relaxed state in which the body is better able to fight imbalances. It is a very relaxing treatment and can be used to restore balance and boost the immune system. Ear Candling treatment includes a pre-treatment pressure-point massage and post-treatment facial massage.
The original Hot Stone therapy “La Stone” was founded by Mary Nelson, an American Massage therapist, who was seeking a system that would enable her to continue her massage practice while putting less strain on her painful wrist joints. Using the stones to massage achieved this goal and also enhanced the massage treatment. However, use of the stones is much more than a tool for the therapist; the warmth of the stones is truly comforting and they connect us with Earth Energy, grounding our vibrations. Why should I learn this? : Clients really love this treatment!! It is a gentler treatment than manual massage but reaches far deeper. One stroke with the stones is equivalent to 10 with the hand and the results are said to last 10 times longer than with manual massage.
This very popular treatment, which has a long history in spas, is now available for salon use !!!

ndian Head Massage is based on traditional Indian massage techniques. It involves work on the upper back, shoulders, neck, as well as the scalp and face using a variety of massage movements to relieve muscular and emotional tension, stimulate circulation and restore mobility in the joints. Head massage is a holistic therapy and treats the whole body, rebalancing the energy flow to the body and creating a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing. Our routine is based on the method developed by Narendra Mehta who brought the formalised treatment to the West.
This 4-day course qualifies you in both Basic and Advanced Indian Head Massage techniques. The Basic level is done without oil through light clothing, so is perfect for corporate work and for using at MBS fairs. It can easily be shortened to give sample treatments. The Advanced level includes the use of oils (both base oils and specialised pre-blended aromatherapy oils) and covers how to conduct the treatment with the client on your massage table. Whichever method is used, this is an excellent stress buster, both relaxing and uplifting, and is good for clearing the head and easing tense shoulders.

Reflexology is an ancient concept, and it is believed that the Chinese developed the technique thousands of years ago. Reflexology works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms in order to restore balance and a feeling of wellbeing. Based on the principle that the feet are a map of the entire body, when the reflex points in the feet are stimulated, the therapist is treating the whole body not just the foot. This Modern reflexology offers tremendous health benefits; it can help reduce stress, improve circulation, cleanse the body of toxins and raise energy levels..
If you are already a Qualified Reflexologist, working on feet alone, why not expand your practice to include Hand Reflexology.

The main aim of Thai Massage is to re-balance the flow of energy in the body using the system of ‘Sen’ energy lines. These are similar to the meridian energy lines of Chinese medicine but follow the natural contours of the body. The Thai Massage method uses a rhythmic movement to apply pressure to energy lines and points, together with muscle stretching and compression. Although it is known as massage, it has more in common with Japanese Shiatsu or Chinese acupressure systems. The benefits of Thai Massage include: freeing of energy blockages; facilitating relaxation; a feeling of wellbeing and increase of flexibility in joints. It is especially good for releasing stress and tension, and encouraging relaxation of both mind and body. The routine you will learn involves manipulation using stretching techniques and gentle pressure along the SEN or energy lines of the body

CBD is a safe, natural product that is able to harness all the benefits while being in complete control Massage is a great way to administer CBD. As well as encouraging the oil to be absorbed by the skin, the massage techniques can help with muscle aches and tensions by decreasing muscle inflammation, making this a favourite treatment of athletes or those who engage in physical activity often, as well as those who are suffering from arthritis and other chronic pain conditions, such as Fibromyalgia and MS.
CBD oil can offer a pleasant everyday benefit of keeping your skin clear. The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD coupled with inhibiting the sebum-producing glands in your skin and “normalizing” the pro-acne agents in skin cells offer a powerful picture of CBD oil’s ability to keep skin clear and healthy.
