This is an ideal treatment for clients suffering from stress, aching shoulders, tight neck, eye strain, headaches, insomnia, poor concentration and hair loss.

Ear candling (45 mins) – €50
Hopi ear candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears. It is used to offer real and calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. A Hopi ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience. A typical treatment is 30 to 45 mins long. The client is fully clothed and lies comfortably on the massage table. The process involves a specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The Hopi candle is then lit and creates a chimney effect. The warm smoke gives the ear drum a gentle massage and the rising air helps to regulate the ear pressure. The warm smoke gently softens and loosens wax in the ear and the chimney effect encourages it to move closer to the ear opening. This treatment is not designed to completely remove wax, but in many cases, it can gently encourage the natural processes of the ear for up to 48 hours after. A 45 minute treatment includes massage, and lymphatic drainage to aid in clearing of the sinuses and relieving tension in the jaw and neck.
Massage is one of the oldest healing traditions. Massage therapy is the practice of kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and soft tissue in order to improve their overall wellbeing. Massage is effective for reducing muscle tension, improve circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, reduce stress, promote relaxation, increase joint mobility and flexibility, improve skin tone, heighten mental alertness and reduce anxiety and depression. Holistic massage is a nurturing process of touch and response. The treatment is adapted to the clients’ unique needs, physical characteristics and personality. A holistic massage therapist will engage with each client, assessing needs and including physical, mental and emotional factors. The massage may include classical Swedish techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, kneading, friction and wringing while also using gentle hand holds and drawing on the healing traditions and an awareness of the human energy field.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage therapy helps melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness and increase circulation and metabolism. Hot stones when couples with massage also help to expand a blood vessel which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The heat and smoothness of the stones rolling over the body help to release tension allowing the muscles to be worked more effectively. A hot stone massage is best for clients with very tense muscles in need of extreme relaxation. Clients have described the sensation of the hot stone massage as being comparable to a heating pad.

We are a registered member of the National Register of Reflexologists Ireland – this means that reflexology treatments at Beauty by Katrina can be re-imbursed with your own private health insurance by Layla Healthcare, VHI Healthcare & Irish Life Health.
Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands and ears that are connected through the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore homeostasis balance in the body. A reflexology treatment can induce a state of calm throughout your body and mind improving sleep patterns and helping the body to return to its normal, healthy rhythms. As our bodies age the nerve endings become less sensitive particularly in the extremity parts of our body. Opening up and cleaning out neural pathways can help improve functionality and flexibility of nerves and cells in various organs of the body. This clearing allows information to flow much faster and more effectively to the brain which would result in a much faster cognitive and physical reactions and boost your memory. The most well-known benefit of reflexology is an improvement in blood circulation throughout your body which increases the amount of oxygen reaching vital organs systems resulting in faster healing and regrowth. The improved circulation also benefits the body in aiding the elimination of toxins.
