Christina offers Shiatsu, Reflexology and Reiki to her clients at Kelso Health & Wellness. Her clients often arrive with something they think of as a physical complaint and, with treatment, realise it is not necessarily fixed and solid. They find their bodies are more malleable than they thought.
Christina is a therapist specialising in Shiatsu, Reflexology and Reiki. She offers these physical therapies to ease people through physical blocks in health as well as emotional hitches and glitches. Christina Auchinachie’s clients emerge from a course of treatments feeling more energised, positive and confident.
Shiatsu massage – works through manipulation of the body, working deep into your muscles. Great for renergising your body, working through muscle tension and providing stress relief.
Reiki – traditional Japanese technique where healing hands can restore energy, release body tension, boost the immune system and ease headaches.
Reflexology – a calming foot treatment which offers general health benefits as well as addressing specific issues. It works through the application of pressure to the feet in areas connected to different parts of the body.
Shiatsu massage is a deeply relaxing experience which is based on applying pressure to energy points throughout the body. This treatment works through manipulation of the body, working deep into your muscles. It provides the ultimate stress relief and deep relaxation. Shiatsu works with the body’s vital energy, known as ‘chi’. Using pressure to stimulate the energy channels, shiatsu aims to unblock any stuck chi (energy) through a combination of kneading, stretching and rubbing.
The receiver of Shiatsu begins to feel more empowered and more responsible for small changes, so, over time, the body feels rejuvenated, calmer and more energised. If you are looking for positive change in your life, Shiatsu can provide a framework to help you make that change.
traditional Japanese reiki
Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. The effect is relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
You can use Reiki to replenish your vital energy, strengthen your immune system, heal headaches and body tensions, and to dissolve fear.
Reiki was discovered by Dr Mikao Usui and Christine teaches his traditional system.
A very calming foot treatment. It’s a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to points on the feet which represent different areas on the body. In doing so, the treatment promotes general health and wellbeing as well as addressing specific issues. You remain fully clothed for this treatment, apart from your feet, and you will be reclined on a chair or massage table.
