Susan Newnham Natural Therapies has been providing a range of natural therapy services in East Gosford since March 2006. Susan has 9 years of experience working in the field of alternative therapies & specialises in the health & wellbeing of women & girls. The clinic is a calm & peaceful space in beautiful surroundings where you will feel nurtured & cared for. Whether you need relief from muscular problems, chronic illness, stress, or just want to indulge your senses, there is a treatment for you. Relaxation is the key to good health. I use gentle techniques that give lasting & effective relief from muscular problems & deep painful restrictions. Your body is always seeking to balance itself & knows what it needs to do to be healthy & painfree. When you are relaxed & the right techniques are used, your body responds & relief from pain & restriction is felt. For more information click on the website.
Massage has a range of benefits. It affects the lymphatic, immune, digestive, circulatory & respiratory systems. It helps a wide variety of ailments. Therapeutic massage helps to relieve depression, anxiety, stress & insomnia. It strengthens the immune system & is particularly useful in illnesses that have a strong stress component. Remedial massage has similar benefits but also works deeply on the muscles, tendons & ligaments of the body, relieving aches & pains, & neck & back tension. Hawaiian Hot Stone Massage eases muscle tension, soothes the nervous system & aids in the release of painful restrictions.
True aromatherapy is much more than a beauty treatment. It is a powerful therapeutic tool. Essential oils have a long & respected history, dating back to ancient Egypt. About 300 essential oils are in use today. They are extracted from a wide variety of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, fruit peel & flowers. The oils work directly on the chemistry of the body. They are so effective because they enter & leave the body with great efficiency, leaving no toxins behind. I use "Ahimsa" therapeutic grade essential oils in all my massage blends. These oils are simply the best you can get & their quality is well known throughout the profession. For all skin treatments I use "Uskincare" products which are made from the purest natural herbal & plant essences.
CranioSacral therapy is a very safe, subtle, yet powerful healing technique. When there is trauma to the body, it responds by setting up restrictions. These restrictions can be so deeply embedded within the body that it is impossible to reach them without using painful invasive techniques which often don't work. CranioSacral therapy allows the therapist to release deep, painful restrictions with just a gentle touch, bringing lasting relief where other therapies have failed. I have found it to be particularly effective for lower back pain, neck & shoulder pain, hip & knee pain, headaches & sinus. There is no manipulation involved, only gentle pressure. It is so safe, it can be used on children & babies.
Pregnancy massage has many benefits for both you & your baby. Pregnancy massage is a wonderful way to relax, increase your energy & relieve discomfort during your pregnancy. Specially designed pregnancy cushions ensure your comfort & allow face down massage right up to full term. Taking time out for a massage supports both you & your baby during this time of so many changes.
Oncology Massage is a specialised form of massage for people who are undergoing treatment for cancer, serious illness or the after effects of treatment. Massage for a person with cancer or a history of cancer needs mindful touch. With the right adjustments, by a trained massage therapist, everyone with cancer or a history of it, can receive the benefits. These benefits include statistically significant improvements in pain levels, fatigue, anxiety, nausea & depression. Other benefits include improved sleep, improvement in quality of life, mental clarity & alertness & meaningful social interaction. An Oncology Massage therapist has comprehensive training in general massage therapy & has completed additional "post graduate" training addressing the full spectrum of cancer-related issues: the physical consequences of cancer, the side effects of various treatments, the psycho-social & emotional consequences. Therapists learn to adapt standard massage therapy techniques to work safely & effectively with people living with cancer. Oncology Massage can ease the journey through cancer & beyond.
Reflexology is much more than just a foot massage. It can bring your whole body back into balance & can have deep, effective results on a large range of health problems. It works on the premise that different areas of the feet & toes correspond to different areas of the body. By stimulating the relevant point on the foot, tension & blockages in the body are relieved, resulting in improved energy flow that enhances health & wellbeing. All Reflexology treatments include an aromatic foot scrub, luxury foot spa with essential oils, polarity balancing & massage with lavender foot balm.
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning "universal life energy". It is a gentle non-intrusive method of hands on healing that taps into the energy referred to as chi in China, prana in India & ki in Japan. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic & acute conditions, gently & powerfully promoting balance among all the body's systems & the normal regenerative processes of the body & mind. Used by a rapidly growing number of hospitals all over the world, Reiki complements medical treatment, natural therapies, & massage therapy. Numerous scientific studies have verified Reiki's therapeutic effects. Reiki is particularly effective for anyone undergoing treatment for cancer as it doesn't interfere with radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
The system of Reiki is designed to facilitate personal growth & change in a very gentle way. Reiki has its roots in Buddhism but it is not a religion. I have been teaching Reiki since 2006. My training was very thorough & included hundreds of hours of giving treatments under my teacher's supervision. I use Reiki regularly on myself & others. My classes are held over 2 consecutive days. I teach all levels of the Usui System of Natural Healing - Usui Shiki Ryoho - which is based on Mikao Usui's teachings. My lineage is through Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi & Hawayo Takata.
Victoria - "After years of back problems following a spinal fusion 14 years ago & trying many & varied therapies, what a delight to find Susan & her unique style of massage. I am able to spend the whole day in the garden without the fear of being stiff & achy the next day. I feel better & have more energy. I cannot recommend Susan highly enough."
Irene - "Before having regular massage from Susan I was on daily pain medication for lower back pain following spinal surgery. My need for pain relief has been significantly reduced thanks to her massage skills. I have recommended her to family & friends who were as impressed as I am, & are now also regular clients. Whether your needs are pain relief or just to relax & spoil yourself, a visit to Susan will keep you coming back for more."
Barbara - "Having a massage with Susan borders on indescribable. Her professionalism is second to none...the atmosphere created promotes relaxation even before the massage treatment begins. I have suffered back pain for more than 30 years. After having regular massages with Susan I am painfree most days....I cannot recommend her business/therapies highly enough."
