Annette – Reflexology, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Relaxation Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Reflexology Reiki and Chakra Balance

We often talk about our passion in life; what we are most passionate about doing and experiencing. To be able to follow that passion is a gift and the way Annette chooses to do this is through the healing power of Reflexology, Massage, Reiki and Essential Oils. As a Reflexologist, Massage Therapist, Clinical Aromatherapist and Reiki Practitioner Annette works with clients to support their general well-being and healing journey.

She values building strong relationships with her clients which helps her understand their needs and goals, not only from a physical perspective, but from a mental, emotional and spiritual perspective as well.

Annette offers several services at Salt & Soul including:

 Reflexology

We often don’t think about our feet, yet we expect them to carry us through life each day. A casual foot rub, or even massaging your own feet, can be profoundly relaxing, and gives your feet a little gratitude for all that hard work.

Annette uses Reflexology as a gateway into your body to help you relax, balance and heal.  The benefits of Reflexology are many, including physical and emotional. Reflexology works with your body to clear blockages and to allow the body’s energy to flow freely. It can help to reduce stress, reduce pain, induce deep relaxation, improve circulation, clear toxins and waste, balance the body, revitalize energy, be a preventative health measure, and stimulate creativity and productivity as stress is reduced and brain function balanced.

When the body and mind is destressed and in balance it can work to heal the physical – a more balanced and healthy body will help and support our body systems such as the digestive, respiratory, muscular and circulatory systems (etc).

Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialised massage which promotes the flow of lymphatic fluid within your body allowing the body to cleanse, heal, balance and rejuvenate.  It is also very relaxing!

The lymphatic system is your body’s waste disposal unit, acting as a giant detox plant, and is in the front-line in our defence to fight infection, detoxify the body, and eliminate excess fluid, toxins and bacteria from the body.  And sometimes it needs a bit of help!

Did you know that 75% of the body’s lymphatic fluid sits just under the skin?  This is why the massage is light and rhythmical, assisting fluid to flow throughout the body.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is helpful:

  • Fluid Retention
  • Lymphoedema
  • Pre surgery preparation and as a Post-Surgery treatment
  • Bloating and digestive issues
  • Pain Relief and Anti-Inflammatory
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Skin Conditions
  • Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
  • Post Sporting Activities and Soft Tissue Injury
  • Sinusitis and Hay-Fever

OR if you are just feeling a bit run down and stressed.

IMPORTANT – There are a few reasons when Lymphatic Drainage massage is not recommended and/or when a Doctors written approval is required – malignant tumors, acute viral inflammation, acute bronchitis, acute heart condition, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), undiagnosed abdominal pain, acute hypotension (extremely low blood pressure), hyperthyroidisms (over function of the thyroid), post-surgery.

Hot Stone Massage

How often to you stop and give yourself permission to relax and pamper yourself, or to treat discomfort and pain?  Hot stone massage is a unique form of massage therapy that uses heated stones to relax and soothe the mind and body.

Annette uses polished and rounded stones of Basalt and Burmese Jade, which are placed on various places of the body to warm and release tense muscles, giving an intense sense of relaxation and comfort. The stones are used to rhythmically and gently massage the body to give a deeper and more therapeutic massage as the heat from each stone penetrates deeper into the muscle, with each stroke being equivalent to around five strokes of a hand.

The hot stones also encourage blood flow, help reduce stress, promote healing and relaxation, and may relieve chronic pain.

Relaxation Massage

Do you consider massage a luxury or a “treat” that you only get on a special occasion like a birthday or maybe something you gift someone at Christmas. But for all that we do with our bodies, and to our bodies, it’s time to start seeing massage for what it can truly be – maintenance.  

Relaxation massage has many therapeutic benefits.  It can reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, improves circulation, lower blood pressure, help to relieve aches and pains and improve sleep.

Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscular tension, and improves circulation.  The aim is to relax, revive and rejuvenate you.            ENJOY!

Aromatherapy Massage

Adding Essential Oils to your massage is like visiting a Five-Star Resort.

Essential Oils can improve the therapeutic benefits of a relaxation massage – reduce anxiety, boost energy levels, relieve the symptoms of menopause, reduce pain and promote healing, relieve headaches, induce sleep, and strengthen the immune, digestive, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Some Essential Oils calm and make you feel relaxed while others energize or help you feel more grounded.

Calming: Chamomile, Lavender, and Geranium

Energizing: Rosemary, Lemon, Sweet Orange and Peppermint

Uplifting: Ylang-ylang, Clary Sage, Grapefruit and Bergamot

Grounding: Cedarwood, Frankincense, Sandalwood and Vetiver

Enjoy that Five-Star touch with Annette as she creates a blend for you, combined with a relaxation massage to help you Relax, Restore and Refresh.

REIKI and Chakra Balance

Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive, yet powerful method of hands-on healing.

Reiki is for everyone and everything – babies and toddlers, teenagers, adults, the elderly and especially our pets.

Reiki calms the mind and will support us during times of stress and sorrow.  It can help us to balance the mind and emotions and bring inner peace and harmony, all of which promotes our body’s own natural healing ability.

We have seven main energy centres in our body through which energy flows in and out in a constant stream.  These energy centres, our Chakras, can become unbalanced or even blocked due to conflict, loss and stress, usually leading to ill-health.

Our goal should be harmony and balance.  However, this can be hard to achieve due to day-to-day stresses and, from time-to-time, situations which cause us pain and unhappiness.  There are signs that our Chakras may be out of balance: –

  1. Something feels “off.”
  2. You get sick.
  3. You get sick. Again.
  4. You start making silly mistakes.
  5. Everything seems to be falling apart.

Annette offers a full hour Reiki healing session or a combination of Reiki and Chakra Balancing.  During a Chakra Balance Annette will take you through a meditation to help you cleanse, balance and protect your Chakras.
