At the first visit a case history is taken and a treatment plan is then discussed. This includes the areas of the body to be treated and the use of appropriate organic oils and creams. A series of treatments may be recommended, often for a period of at least four weeks. The longer the problem has persisted, the more treatments may be needed.
For example; a series of Yarrow liver compresses would be used to support different conditions. Such as Glandular fever or deep grief & sadness. Firstly a lemon or lavender footbath is given to warm the entire body, then we would apply the hot herbal compress made from Yarrow over the liver. You are then wrapped warmly for 40 to 50 minutes.
Over a series of treatments you may notice more energy, and an increased enthusiasm & interest in life. Working to support the liver helps enhance the liver’s ability to detoxify & heal the body. The lavender footbath soothes the nervous system. The lemon footbath increases vitality & helps support healthy emotional boundaries.
