Hi my name is Andrea Amis and I am the owner and practitioner at Andastra.
After a long and rewarding nursing career which spans almost 30 years, I have taken a giant leap of faith into the world of Complementary Therapies.
My own personal struggles of juggling a career and family and entering into the world of management, had taken its toll on my health, and to say I was stressed is an understatement! I was lacking energy, tired all the time and suffered minor physical ailments in the process. I turned to complementary therapies to improve my physical, mental and spiritual health and the journey was simply life changing.
I granted myself permission to rest! I devoted time and space to practice mindfulness, meditation and yoga, and booked on a mindfulness retreat in the South of France. Here I received many healing therapies, including Reiki and massage.
Through several healing sessions, in a nurturing environment, I began to let go, layer by layer of the issues that were holding me back from living the life that we all strive for … balance and harmony in mind, body and spirit.
I am truly passionate about improving health and well-being with complementary therapies, as I have experienced first-hand the benefits of reducing stress through these gentle yet effective techniques. My treatments are not intended to replace conventional medicine in any way, and you can feel confident that I will always advise you to consult your doctor if I feel it is necessary.
The therapies I offer include Reiki, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage, all of which I have undergone an approved training course and have full registration and insurance with the Guild of Holistic Therapists.
The benefits of Reiki include: promoting personal awareness, relaxation and reduction of stress, alleviating pain and discomfort, improving sleep patterns and low mood.
Reflexology is also a passion of mine as it encourages the body to re balance and self-heal through the use of therapeutic touch. The feet mirror the organs and structures of the body and by applying gentle pressure to these reflexes, the body’s natural state of equilibrium can be restored.
The benefits of reflexology include: relaxation, alleviation of stress as well as treating specific conditions.
Indian Head Massage has been practiced for thousands of years and is great for reducing tension in the neck and shoulders. It can be undertaken sitting upright, fully clothed or in a lying position as you feel comfortable.
A combination of therapies is also available.
