Men And Massage

We estimate that the people who step into our treatment rooms are roughly 70% female to 30% male. Generally speaking, men also seem to come in when they have a specific problem, whilst women come in for a bit of nurture, for general upkeep posturally or for treating a specific problem.

Why is this? Is it easier for women to seek remedial therapy? Do you guys think it's fluffy to tend to your wellness?

We want you to know it's not and absolutely everyone is entitled to some nurture.How often do you check the oil in your car? Have you purchased new clothes recently? When did you last mend something around your home?

When do you tend to yourself? The one thing that keeps all of the above ticking over.

When your body wears out, where are you going to live?

Aftercare Advice and Referring You On…

Often after a treatment we'll look to send you on your way with some advice, stretches or practises that we feel could further aid your healing. Things like drinking plenty of water after a massage to re-hydrate, foam rolling after exercising, making sure you get enough quality sleep to restore yourself and even investing in some orthotics may well have been things you've heard us say.

Sometimes we may suggest seeing another therapist! Could regular Pilates sessions with a quality instructor help with your posture? Perhaps a visit to an Osteopath might be just what you need. We will always be honest, as we take our duty of care seriously. Just ask us at reception for the business card of other practitioners that we recommend.

We hope that after one of our treatments, coupled with some helpful advice, you'll lead a life that allows you to do all of the things you desire!
And remember…

Crystal of the Month - Moonstone

By Karen Jenkins Dip VCCT, MCHF

MoonstoneMoonstone is said to be a Woman Stone as it helps with nature's cycles.

The properties of a Moonstone Crystal MAY help with the following:

Physically

Mentally

Emotionally

Spritually

A crystal for the Sacral and Heart Chakras. Moonstone can be held on the heart centre for aiding in emotional experiences. Equally, placing Moonstone on a woman's sacral chakra may help soothe this area.

This is a wonderful, gentle stone that can be held in the hand whilst meditating (especially at the time of a Full Moon). It can also be carried on the body for emotional balance.

Please make sure any crystal you use is thoroughly cleansed and energised for you to fully benefit from its wonderful power.

Please pop in to The Amber Zone to find out more about the properties of this crystal or to purchase the stone. Aquamarine tumble stones are £2 each.

Karen Jenkins is our talented Crystal Therapist, Sound Healing and Chakra Balancing Practitioner, and Reiki Master. Get in touch if you'd like more information on crystals or come and see Karen on a Saturday between 10am and 2pm.

A Handy Guide To Help You Choose Your Crystals This Year

By Karen Jenkins Dip VCCT, MCHF

Choosing crystals can sometimes be somewhat overwhelming when faced with the beautiful arrays on sale.

The best way is to go with what your gut feeling says. Use your intuition.  Does a colour jump out at you?  Are you drawn to a shape? Colours have vibration of their own as well as each type of crystal has its own vibration.

Here’s an overview of colours which may help with your selection.

It can’t be stressed enough how important it is to cleanse and energise your crystal, especially when you first acquire it. Crystals absorb energy as well as amplify and radiate it.

Here at The Amber Zone we have a leaflet outlining the best ways to cleanse and energise your crystals. We want you to enjoy and ultimately benefit from your crystals so do take the time and effort to prepare them for the wonderful work that they can do for you.

More Treatments Safe for Children

Reflexology with Jane Stubbs

Continuing with this months theme of complementary therapy for children, Reflexology is hugely beneficial for younger ones.
Children respond well, especially the highly sensitive child, to Reflexology. They are more open and have not yet built up the defences as we adults have, so the child quickly realises that you are doing something good to make them feel better.

Reflexology is an ancient treatment based on the principle that there are reflexes on the feet relative to each organ and all parts of the body and by stimulating these reflexes in a correct way, we can help many health problems in a natural way. The whole body can be re-tuned and brought back into balance. It’s non invasive and can help both physical and emotional conditions.
Other childhood ailments that can benefit from Reflexology include: colic, bed wetting, sleep problems, respiratory problems, digestive problems, allergies, stress, anxiety, OCD and hyperactivity.

A parent must accompany the child whilst having the treatment and can be held by the parent if small enough, or sit on their lap so they feel comfortable and safe. A consultation will be taken to address the problems that may be occurring. Then the Reflexology treatment will begin on the feet usually using a gentle essential oil blend to help relax the child. Both feet are treated.

The length of the treatment depends on the child’s attention span but if possible it should last approximately 30 minutes.
 
Price: £20 for 30 minutes

Some questions answered

Q. How long have you been treating?
A. 20 years.

Q. What is your favourite treatment to give and why?
A. I love any treatment but especially one where the client arrives in pain(!) and leaves feeling relieved of that pain and generally feeling better. Our hot stone massage treatment is lovely and I would recommend this to someone seeking relaxation with a little luxury.

Q. What can people expect having received a treatment from you, right after and the following day?
A. Although they might feel a little tender initially, I would expect an improvement within 24 hours. Where necessary, I will give aftercare advice and often ask that the client lets me know how they feel the next day.

Q. Client: "I'm very nervous about having a massage because I'm overweight/ underweight/ have a curved spine/ struggle with anxiety..."
A. Please don't worry! It's important to me that anyone feels they can come to The Amber Zone, and you will be treated with care. This is our priority and we have an array of treatments to suit each client individually. Often, if you're struggling with weight or a curved spine then a massage can be very beneficial. You're in safe hands!
