L’Alchimiste offers a range of truly healing modalities that support our natural and innate health and vitality
Naturopathy & Nutrition
Naturopathy essentially means ‘healing with nature’ and hence uses a combination of tools such as nutrition, herbal medicines and nutritional supplements to support the body to return to its natural balance and innate vitality.
We consider that true naturopathy works hand in hand with conventional medicine, where the marriage of both approaches and therapies allows for the client to be fully met and supported in a holistic way.
The word ‘remedial’ comes from the word ‘remedy’ – a medicine or a treatment for a disease or injury. Remedial Massage practice works to treat an injury, ailment or condition specific to the musculoskeletal system where the aim is to offer support with re-establishing a more natural and harmonious way of movement away from the ill-movement that resulted in the injury or condition. It is wise to seek support to assist the body in its rehabilitation and ensuring that our natural movement is restored so that homeostasis and true balance is brought back to the body.
Relaxation Massage is a smooth and flowing massage that offers the body an opportunity to relax fully and release tensions held from accumulated stress. It promotes general relaxation, improved circulation and supports the supple movement of the body. It can be particularly beneficial in times of stress, general tension in the body, difficulty sleeping, body adjustments in pregnancy and breastfeeding amongst many other situations.
Esoteric Healing is perhaps the most simple healing technique of all the esoteric modalities. It involves gentle hands-on healing on a fully clothed client. Through esoteric healing, old patterns, ideals and beliefs can be explored and cleared so that our connection to our innermost (our natural innate essence) is strengthened, which in turn assists the client in making more self-loving and healing choices in life.
Esoteric Massage is a very gentle massage that uses a combination of cream and oil. The massage techniques used are very simple yet powerful and aim to release ingrained energy patterns that are locked into the body and which interfere with the body’s natural suppleness, flexibility and movement. This form of massage is deeply relaxing and supports the client to reconnect to their body and move in a way that is gentle and rejuvenating.
Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy
Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy is a very delicate series of hand-applied gentle pulsing techniques on a fully clothed client. The process allows the body to expand and relax deeply due to the release of held tensions or stress within the layers of connective tissue that run throughout the entire body. This technique is particularly suitable for those recovering from surgery or for young children and infants, but equally effective for chronic pain conditions and injury and trauma to the body’s musculoskeletal system.
Esoteric Chakra Puncture
Esoteric Chakra Puncture is subtle needle work performed directly on the skin of the client. We use Japanese acupuncture needles that are so delicate they need to be inserted with a tube, and hence only penetrate about 1/3 of a millimetre into the skin. Chakra Puncture is an age-old healing modality that supports the connection to our inner essence and vitality and reawakens our natural and innate ability to heal.
