All of the healing techniques we use are holistic,
meaning that they take into account the balance of mind, body and spirit, a
connection which is often ignored in allopathic medicine. For it is said that:
" Whatever affects the body affects the mind and whatever affects the mind affects the body".
Aromatherapyuses the power of pure essential oils of natural plant origin. These are applied to your skin, through which they enter your body, going into your blood stream and then to all the organs of your body. The scent of the oils also affects your brain helping to balance your moods and all aspects of your being.
Massage using Aromatherapy is extremely powerful, helping to stimulate your body's internal organs, drain toxins, boost your immune system and soothe muscle pain leaving you feeling relaxed and balanced.
Western Herbal Medicine uses remedies based on natural plant materials, either singly or in combination, to activate the body's own defence mechanisms, so as to enable it to heal itself. Many plants have hundreds of years of recorded use and are the basis of many modern, synthetic drugs used in allopathic (orthodox) medicine. There is also a strong emphasis on preventative treatment, which includes the use of diet as a contributory factor. In the main, herbal remedies are used to relieve the symptoms, but also essentially the cause, of self-limiting conditions. They are generally regarded as safe, effective, well-tolerated by the body and with no toxicity from normal and prescribed use.
Ayurveda is the ancient Indian Art of healing which brings your body back into balance. The word "Ayurveda" means "knowledge of life" and works by using herbal medicine, diet, exercise and spiritual practices to bring the body back into balance and thus banish disease. It has been practiced in an unbroken line for over 5000 years and is recognised by the World Health Organization as being one of the most important forms of medicine in the world.
At Sacred Earth we use only the highest quality herbs in our practice either in raw form or as tinctures. Each patient is seen as an individual and the majority of medicines are mixed to your own specific needs.
