Introduction To Reflexology!

Stephanie has been practicing Reflexology for the last two years and finds it a fascinating and relaxing treatment from both a therapist & client’s perspective.

Reflexology is a natural and holistic therapy that dates as far back as 2540BC and is said to have been originally used by the Chinese and Egyptians. Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the feet and hands – known as reflex points, correspond to every organ in the body. Therefore it is believed that the entire body is mapped out on our feet and hands and by massaging these reflex points, it can help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself.

What are the benefits of a Reflexology treatment?

  • Stress Relieve – Reflexology provides a deep relaxation, which can help the body to balance itself and allows healing energy to flow throughout the body. This can aid in releasing tension and improving your general sense of wellbeing.

  • Muscle Relaxation – The energy in our body is thrown out of balance when muscles become tensed or over stressed. Therefore the nerve pathways that connect muscles to the rest of the body become congested. Reflexology can help stimulate the nerve endings in the feet to release energy and relax the muscles.

  • Improved Circulation – The blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells in the body and helps to eliminate toxins and remove waste products. Reflexology stimulates the circulatory system and helps to get that circulation going!

  • Cleansing and waste removal – The lymphatic, urinary or the intestinal systems can become blocked due to a build up of waste. This is what causes us to feel bloated and sometimes sick. Reflexology can help release these blockages and cleanse the body of impurities by helping the body to eliminate waste and drain inflammation and fluid retention. This is also why it is very important to drink plenty of water after a reflexology treatment as you may become dehydrated, and replacing your fluids is important to prevent that sluggish feeling.

  • Sense of wellbeing – Reflexology helps to relax and the balance the body, improve psychological health through a sense of deep relaxation and enhance energy levels creating an overall feeling of wellbeing.

Coconut Compress is here!

We have recently introduced our new Coconut Compresses and they are a hit!

The gentle fragrance of the coconut is quite the opposite of our herbal compress, It is sweet yet subtle and smells delicious as you drift into a world of relaxation. 

 

 

There is only 1 ingredient in the compress.. Pure Coconut.
It is 100% natural and when they are soaked and steamed all of the coconuts natural oils are released onto your skin. It provides skin conditioning benefits as coconut is a source of anti-oxidants plus and excellent moisturizer.

 

As you may know coconut oil is a wonderful thing to have. It has many uses and benefits:

 

  1. Replenishes dead skin cells, making you look younger
  2. 3 in 1 cleanser, makeup remover, moisturizer
  3. Vitamin E makes it great for hair and skin
  4. Adds shine and volume to long hair.
  5. The high Lauric acid makes it great if you have skin complaints as it is a natural healer
  6. Helps the body burn fat quicker by speeding up the metabolism
  7. Effective against dandruff, itchy scalp and skin diseases.

 

Coconut is renowned for it's main properties of conditioning the skin and hair so it's just perfect to use with our Table Thai, Ultimate Thai Massage and also Face & Scalp massages. 

                                                                     

If you would like to try our new Coconut Compresses please call 01506 238366 and request them when booking.

The Best Laid Plans

Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you have had a great week, and are looking forward to the fun events around central Scotland this weekend.
Bathgate has the Pipe Band Championships, and it is also the Edinburgh Marathon this weekend.

I wanted to write to you all to thank you for the support over the last few months as I got through the last term of my pregnancy, and although I had hoped that I could continue to work up until Saturday 25th of May, it seems that my insistence to push on has caused a few more issues than I would have liked.

On Wednesday May 22nd I started having some health issues, and after trying to resolve them with my local healthcare practitioners, I ended up in the hospital and being admitted for more monitoring and tests.
Although my symptoms eased off on the Thursday, they are still of a concern so I will receive ongoing tests and monitoring every few days now until the Baby finally makes her arrival.

I have been allowed to come home but ordered to rest, and take it as easy as possible.

The good news is that baby is lovely and healthy, it's just mother incubator that is starting to fail.

I want to first apologize to anyone who may have had an appointment scheduled with me Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Caitlin has been attempting to contact everyone since Wednesday night to update them on the status of their appointment. Our first goal is to ensure that your original appointment can be covered by Caitlin, however if that is not possible we are attempting to reschedule for the first available appointment that is suitable to your needs.

I feel terrible that I have had to cancel some appointments, and can only apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing people, but at the moment my health has become a priority.

I hope that we will have some news regarding the baby in the next few days/weeks and then we can start to plan my return to the clinic.
I am sure you will all be in very capable hands with Caitlin during my leave.
If you have any issues and would like to contact me, I can still be reached at contact@weesally.com.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Kindest Regards,
Sally Chamness

What is in a Thai Herbal Compress?

Recently we have launched our new Thai range and we have great interest in our Thai Herbal Compress. So we decided to let you have an insight into what exactly goes into the compresses.

There are countless types of herbal compresses out in the market to buy but we have tried to keep it as traditional as possible.

In Thailand they are very passionate about what they use in their compresses but also what they put in their food. That is why throughout this article we will discuss how the herbs and oils can be used in both compress and cuisine.  

 

Zingiber Cussumunar Roxb. 

Zingiber is more commonly known in Thailand as ‘Plai’. It is an essential oil that is extracted from the root, or Rhizome, of the Zingiber plant. Zingiber is native to Thailand and is often relatively easy to get a hold of. The oil is produced by steam distillation of the root. This could be one of the reasons for its common use in food and herbal medicine. Doctors in Thailand tend to use this on sports injuries because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic purposes. This makes it ideal for those who suffer from rheumatics or arthritis. By combining the oil in the compress with the heat of it once it’s been steamed, it will ease the swelling around inflamed joints and help regain mobility.

 

Turmeric

Turmeric, or Curcuma Longa, is native to India. It is a powder rather than oil, but like the Zingiber it is also extracted from the roots. But instead of being distilled the roots are steamed over many hours then dried out in a hot oven. Once fully dried out it is then ground up into an orange/yellow powder commonly used in Indian cuisine for curries.
Although it is more popular in food, it is used for herbal compress because of its antifungal and antibacterial purposes. If you have ever had a traditional compress massage and the compress turns yellow throughout the treatment, don’t be worried. This is just the Turmeric. As it has such a strong colouring it can also be used for dying clothes, linens etc.

 

Zedoary

Zedoary is known by many names; Zedoaria, White Turmeric & Curcuma Zedoria. These are the most commonly used names for it. Unfortunately its name is more common than its use around Europe & America. This is due to the fact it has been replaced by ginger as it is easier to get a hold of and cheaper.  It is predominantly used in Indian & Indonesia for seasoning. This is also an essential oil that can be extracted from the roots of the plant. It is very unique and recognisable because of its smell & taste. It has a smell similar to Mango yet tastes like Ginger. Many people use Zedoary to ease anxiety, stress, fatigue, and pain and swelling because of its anti-inflammatory purposes. Once again perfect for those suffering from Arthritis. 

 

Lemongrass

Lemongrass, also known as Cymbopogon Citratus, is native to India & Tropical Asia. Lemongrass is very popular in Aromatherapy and is great when used during the cold/flu. In other health benefits, it is used to improve digestion, nausea and menstruation problems along with headaches, muscle cramps, spasms and rheumatisms. By combining  lemongrass with a  massage such as colon & deep organ massage, it will leave you feeling refreshed.  Lemongrass is perfect to use in any form of massage but by adding it to the compress gives a little added ‘Zing!’ to it.

 

So there we have it. The 4 four main ingredients for our Thai Herbal Compresses. If you would like to book in for a Thai Herbal Compress massage, or any of our other Thai treatments please call 01506 238366 or book online via Facebook or Weesally.com
