Jan de Vries Blythswood offer a wide range of therapies.
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
Reiki is Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that a ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones ‘life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent and disability through physical means. Physiotherapist are experts in movement and function who work with their clients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life changing events. Physiotherapy can help recover from injury pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
Osteopathy is a primary health care system, complementary to other health practices. Osteopaths work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints, using holistic approaches. A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated and indivisible whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment. No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of diagnosis. The key tools for osteopathic diagnosis include listening to the client history, examining muscles and joints and observing movements. A range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation are applied therapeutically.
Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ - in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts. Homeopathic medicines are manufactured using a process combining serial dilution and vigorous shaking.
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is the ultimate therapeutic and popular massage of the head, neck, shoulders and face. This traditional and effective massage is excellent for relieving stress and also promotes relaxation with healing benefits and overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that can be that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points close to the skin. The stimulation of acupuncture points employs penetration of the skin by thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.
Food sensitivity testing
Here at Blythswood we are using the SCIO Biofeedback system. The nutritional screening will indicate vitamin and mineral deficiencies and any food sensitivities you may have. It is completely pain free and all test results are given immediately.
Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy but with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion. The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and the immune system. Essential oils are believed to be absorbed through the skin. Each essential oil has different healing properties. Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to conditions involving stress or improving emotionally related conditions, headaches, digestive disorders, premenstrual syndrome and back ache.
BioResonance Feedback is a non- invasive therapy which involves placing electrodes on your skin. The electrodes are connected to a SCIO machine which checks the energy wavelengths coming from your body and then counteracts bad frequencies by restoring the optimum balance.
The SCIO is a safe device and scans the body in the same way that a virus scan runs on a computer, looking for deficiencies, viruses, weaknesses, allergies and dysfunctions. Based on this, a unique health plan is devised for you and therapy commences right away, which means that you feel the benefits almost immediately.
Biofeedback is very safe and has a feedback loop which zeros in on your resonance pulse and sends back an alternate pulse to which your body responds to rebalance functions.
