Personalised Treatments

Therapies on offer can be combined in one treatment, or used individually.

Given regularly these therapies can regulate blood pressure, aid digestion and sleep, relieve headaches and assist healing injuries.

I encourage my regular clients to take the self-Reiki course I offer.  This enables them to benefit from self-treatments between appointments.

The therapy room on the ground floor benefits from an hydraulic therapy couch that can lower to allow the client easy access on to it.

Zen Meditation

A Simple Guide to Meditation

A thing I often hear is,
“I don’t know how to meditate“
This generally implies that there is a right way and a wrong way to meditate…. There really isn’t! Just find a way that works for you. I’d recommend finding a quiet space where you know you won’t be disturbed – maybe first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Just take some time to sit in stillness and really appreciate it. A common place to start is the breath. Try counting the breath, in-breath one…. out-breath two… in-breath three…. etc. up to ten. When you reach ten, just start back at one again.

Numerous studies have been done on the health and wellbeing benefits to meditation and mindfulness, including: stress reduction; pain relief; mental clarity; calmness; improved self-esteem; and confidence. As your practice becomes more consistent, you will really start to feel these benefits and more. You’ll be able to utilise your new skills to make day-to-day life a bit easier, a bit more straightforward, whilst also gaining a deeper insight into yourself.

At Kinburn, we teach Zen Mindfulness Meditation. Our residential retreats are based on Health & Wellbeing. We also run these as 8-week courses for the local community, where you can really kick-start your meditation and mindfulness practice in the most affirmative way.

What to expect from your first Reiki Treatment

Now here’s a question I get asked a lot: “What should I expect during a Reiki Treatment?“ If you’re new to Reiki or just interested in finding out a bit more then this will no doubt be a question that crops up for you. It might come alongside “what if I don’t feel anything?” or […]
