Isis Moon

Focus areas

Stress management Muscle tension Sinus Aches & pains Nervous system Complementary therapies

I established Isis Moon in 1998 as a clinic to support women's healing through a variety of complementary therapies. My main focus is on women's and children's health issues - at all life stages.

Over the years I have found that the most powerful healing happens on both a physical and an energetic level.

Massage therapy is used to treat a wide range of common musculo-skeletal conditions, including muscle tension, headaches and migraines, work related stress and repetitive strain injuries. Massage therapy also relieves general aches and pains and assists in recovery from injury.

I offer a wide range of treatment styles to suit your individual needs. Depending on your treatment plan, I may apply a number of different techniques during your session, including reflexology.


Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors imbalances in a corresponding part of the body. These areas, known as reflex points, are also found in the hands and ears - although foot reflexology is the most common treatment.

Research shows that reflexology is an effective therapy to assist many conditions including muscular tension, back / shoulder / neck pain, headaches, sinus pain, menopausal symptoms, pre-menstrual syndrome and other menstrual irregularities. It is also an excellent treatment for stress and anxiety.

Reflexology is a non-intrusive technique that works on many levels, soothing, calming and balancing the entire body. During a session I usually focus on the feet, but may also include hand and ear reflexology points to maximise the effect of the treatment.


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD - Vodder method)

MLD is a gentle massage technique that treats the whole body and relaxes the nervous system. It is used to clear up blockages in the lymphatic system allowing lymph to flow more freely.

The lymphatic system is our front line of defence against infection and is a critical part of our immune system. This system helps to detoxify the body and transports metabolic waste, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.

The MLD technique was developed by Emil Vodder in the 1930's, initially to treat people with colds. Now the therapy is used to treat a range of conditions, including pre and post-operative problems.

Seichim
Crystal healing
Energy balancing


Reiki, Seichim, Crystal healing and Energy balancing are complementary therapies based on vibrational / energy healing.

These are gentle techniques for stress reduction and healing. Each technique stimulates the flow of energy in the body and promotes healing on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. These forms of healing provide feelings of peace, security and well-being.

Because they are based on energetic healing, these treatments are given through clothing. These are non-manipulative, non-invasive therapies which do not interfere with any form of medical treatment.

During Reiki, Seichim and Energy balancing treatments the therapist places her hands on or above the body. These treatments are generally completed during 30-minute sessions. Hour sessions are also available.

Crystal healing uses the vibrations of particular crystals, chosen to restore the balance of the physical and energetic body systems. Together the client and therapist choose crystals for the treatment session. Crystals are placed on and around the body. This healing therapy may be combined with other energy treatments, including massage and reflexology.
