Zen by Usana

Hands-on holistic treatments to bring Zen

Our bodies are incredibly intuitive, sending us signals to all that’s around us, as well as how we are managing emotionally, physically and mentally.

  • How many times can you recollect feeling tense in your shoulders, neck and back during more challenging times in your life?
  • Is your posture being impacted with what’s going on around you, whereby adding strains to parts of your body?
  • Is sleep becoming an issue? Is your mind racing all times of the day?
  • Are you suffering from headaches? Muscular tension?
  • Are you getting colds, skin looks dull, hair limp, perhaps even tummy is bloated or upset?

Zen by Usana offers hand-on holistic treatments to help bring greater balance to your body, and can be booked and enjoyed by all.

Swedish Massage and Reflexology are both offered and delivered by Gillian, who is a fully qualified therapist in both treatments. These therapies have been specially chosen due to their healing properties, as well as aiding relaxation, rebalance and ultimately, bringing zen.

Usana by Zen operates out of Beauty 4 U, on Allardice Street, Stonehaven. For further details, please contact Gillian or visit Beauty 4 U’s Facebook page, click HERE. You can see further contact options at the bottom of this page.

Take time out for you. Priorise you, prioritise your wellbeing. 💕

Swedish massage

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet and / or hands. This therapy is generally very relaxing, with many clients also stating it releases stress and emotions.

The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot /hands is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.

Reflexologists use foot and hand charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas, and will highlight the tension areas to the client at the end of the treatment.

Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Given that reflexology is also low risk, it can be a reasonable option if you’re seeking relaxation and stress relief.
