body & mind
Margaretha Blomqvist (our wonderful salon founder and Jeanette’s mum) has spent a lifetime helping people with hair loss and scalp problems, most of which have their root causes in stress, body burnout and behaviours based on beliefs that have not served the higher good of anyone at all, never mind the long-term health of people’s bodies.
It was always inevitable that Salon Margaretha’s would offer more than healthy hairstyling, beauty care and positive psychology, so it was natural that our salon services and treatments would have expanded into therapies and techniques that help to balance, restore and replenish people on every level possible.
And so it is. We are highly proactive in guiding our clients to find their very best holistic well-being through solid advice, game-changing recommendations and personal empowerment.
We are blessed to be able to work with a team of great people who help others to feel like great people as well.
Here are our current feel-good body and mind services available for you and your fabulousness!
reflexology for feet, hands or face
A reflexology treatment uses gentle pressure to specific areas of the feet, face, ears or hands.
It is believed that these areas correspond to various organs and systems of the body, which when stimulated with pressure via the reflexologist’s gentle touch, can reduce a person’s experience of stress, tension and pain.
Reflexology has also been shown to be beneficial in helping people with anxiety and depression, as well as enhancing quality relaxation and better sleep.
Our reflexologist, Aneta, has many year’s experience in the field of Reflexology and it has become her life’s vocation to help others by sharing her knowledge, expertise and commitment to guide people to find their own natural well-being and inner harmony, through the wisdom of their body’s innate energy and balance.
Reiki is the Japanese technique and beautiful healing art of offering positive, calming and stress-reducing benefits to people and even animals.
It is one of the most ancient healing methods known to mankind.
It is not massage, nor is it based on belief, religion or suggestion. It is the practice of passing on healing energy through various hand positions that the Reiki practitioner holds over various areas of the receiver’s body.
The person receiving the Reiki is fully clothed and is usually laying down or sitting comfortably.
A Reiki session is pleasant and relaxing, helping to ease tension and stress. It may even help the body to heal itself and find balance on many levels both physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is a total gift to your body, mind and personal wellness.
The wisdom of the universal life force energy of Reiki may also help to:
• Balance organs and glands and their bodily functions
• Release blocks and suppressed feelings
• Strengthen the life force energy and the immune system
• Relieve pain and heal holistically
• Promote natural self-healing
• Balance the energies in the body
• Relax and reduce stress
• Clear toxins
The Access Bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head, storing the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that you have ever had about anything throughout your whole life.
There are bars for healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, fears, power, aging, sex and money, to name but a few.
Each thought, idea, attitude, decision or belief that you have fixed in place solidifies the energy and limits your capacity to be generative in that area. The purpose of an Access Bars session is to clear those points and to invite people to receive.
How does the process work?
Running The Bars is a simple, non–invasive, energy process where the facilitator lightly touches each point on the head to release the energy.
Receiving this process (having your Bars run) usually leaves you with a sense of peace and space; and a feeling like there is more possibility open to you.
This is an incredibly dynamic process that will not only leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed, as if you have had a deep restful sleep. It can also change your life.
When run on children before exams, it can have dramatic effect on their grades.
Pregnant women report that labour is much shorter and the birthing process is much easier when they have their bars run regularly.
Many people report that it assists them in sleeping more soundly.

lomilomi nui hawaiian massage
Lomilomi Nui is a traditional Hawaiian massage that uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and movement to restore energy and soothe the body.
It is also known as the 'loving hands' massage. This name helps to explain its principles - the massage works gently, yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch.
Lomilomi Nui works from the belief that memories are not just stored in the brain and mind, but also in every cell of the human body. The long, continuous strokes of the massage are designed to help the body let go of its old patterns and behaviours, which can cause as many stresses and strains as muscle tension.
What is Lomilomi Nui massage good for?
Lomilomi Nui aims to treat the body and mind as one whole being. It is an ancient therapy thought to:
• release tension
• assist blood and lymph flow
• eliminate waste and stimulate removal of toxins
• rejuvenate the body
• instill a sense of peace, harmony and well-being
Lomilomi Nui massage is a whole body treatment and the oils that are used may leave hair and makeup a little messy!
Massage is a deeply therapeutic treatment that gives the body and mind many wellness benefits.
The practice of massage therapy dates back at least 5000 years and today, it is probably even more vital as day-to-day stress levels are red-lining and our bodies and minds are saturated with work overload, postural imbalances, body burn-out, chronic fatigue, aches, pains and emotional bankruptcy.
Our massage therapies aim to begin to change all that and start to holistically rebalance, restore energy, relax and revive your body and mind.
We use only the purest bio-blends of essential oils, botanicals, organic oils, exquisite butters, CBD balms and aromatherapeutic elixirs.
We use various techniques, depending on the body's greatest need, from aromatherapy massage to Reiki, trigger point therapy to myofascial release, breathing massage, mindfulness and EFT Meridian Tapping.
(Please note: Our massage therapies always include a brief screening and health and safety check prior to beginning our massage).
EFT Meridian Tapping
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or “Meridian Tapping” is a fascinating non-invasive energy psychology technique that has been clinically observed to help people on just about every level imaginable.
The method is quick, simple and easy to use and is based on gently tapping over various key meridian points in the body, whilst saying certain statements.
This tapping has an incredibly calming effect on our central nervous system, helping to balance the body’s energy and rewire our brains to respond in healthier ways.
EFT Meridian Tapping is an amazingly effortless process and a great tool for creating a higher level of body and mind health, as well as better clarity, peace and peak performance in every aspect of our lives.

hopi ear candling
Hopi Ear Candling is also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy and it is primarily a wonderful soothing and relaxing treatment.
A special tube-like candle is very gently inserted just into the outside opening of the ear.
The candle is then lit and the small flame causes a light vertical vortex effect on the ear being treated.
There is a soft burning sound, which is a bit strange, but it’s gently warming and incredibly calming.
Most people feel very refreshed, yet completely relaxed after experiencing this treatment.
The candle is also infused with anti-inflammatory essential oils and of course, these also have a very positive and “whole-person-friendly” effect on a person's mood and mindset.
Our Hopi Ear Candling Specialist, Sheena, always includes a lovely gentle acupressure massage of the face and ear area afterwards, so you'll definitely feel good after this great therapy.
We would say that Hope Ear Candling is definitely worth trying if you are a bit stressed and want some mindful “me-time”.
“If you learn to create the right kind of climate in your body, mind and emotion, your health, well-being and joy - everything will be taken care of."

Now isn't that refreshing?!
"A state of equilibrium; emotional stability or harmony in the parts of a whole." - Dictionary.com
Without balance, whether it be pH, postural, muscular, emotional, work/life or even just calories, our experience of life will be a struggle.
Margaretha’s decades of work with clients with hair loss and scalp problems have a shown her a strong correlation with inner "im-balance" and the body’s way of dealing (or not!) with these “stresses”.
It was inevitable that we would someday incorporate possible therapeutic antidotes for such potential imbalances, right here in our salon. And so it is.
We now have energy coaches and therapists who offer sessions in-salon for:
