Complementary therapies adopt a holistic approach which means you are seen as a whole person with your body, mind and spirit all inter-related and contributing to your state of health. It is important to realise that holistic therapies will not ‘cure’ any conditions but may help you to manage your symptoms, feel a sense of well being and improve your general health. The therapies work alongside conventional medicine and you may want to inform your Doctor that you are receiving treatment.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to promote relaxation and other therapeutic effects. Following a consultation an oil blend will be made to suit your individual needs. As well as promoting relaxation, essential oils are useful for a variety of conditions such as insomnia, aches and pains, respiratory conditions, skin problems and hormonal imbalance. All the oils are 100% pure.
Massage is the manipulation of body tissues to promote therapeutic effects. In Swedish Massage all the strokes relate to the body’s circulatory and lymphatic system. In this way they help to relieve fatigue and promote deep relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves understanding the layers of the body and the ability to work with the tissues in these layers to relax and lengthen them and release tension. Whilst deep tissue massage is not as relaxing as regular massage most clients, once they are used to the benefits report increased relaxation and alleviation of pain. This in turn will improve posture and flexibility of movement.
Connective Tissue Massage
Connective Tissue Massage works to release tight scar tissue or tissues surrounding a scar. It is particularly useful in the release of tissue following surgery such as mastectomy and breast reconstruction for breast cancer. It may help to improve shoulder movement and relieve post surgical pain. The treatment may also be used on other parts of the body.
Reiki is a Japanese therapy that can be used to promote relaxation. The word is Japanese, ‘REI’ meaning universal and ‘KI’ meaning life force energy. Reiki is a way of channelling energy in the body to achieve balance. In a Reiki treatment the practitioner places his/her hands over a number of positions on the body (chakra points), acting as a channel for the Reiki energy. The energy then begins to move in and through your system, naturally directing itself to the source of any imbalance. Reiki is particularly useful to calm thoughts and to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. I have found it to be very helpful in the management of panic attacks and hyperventilation syndrome in conjunction with physiotherapy techniques.
Reflexology involves the use of subtle massage and pressure over reflex areas on the feet or hands. The therapy is based on the belief that different areas on the feet or hands are related to different parts of the body. The treatment is very relaxing and may be useful for conditions such as menstrual problems, fertility issues, insomnia, migraine, irritable bowel, respiratory conditions and muscular pain. Sometimes clients report an effect after just one session, however changes may not occur until after 5-6 treatments. A course of 6 is suggested to gain full benefit.
Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear Candles are helpful in the treatment of earwax, sinusitis, tinnitus, headaches and stress. This soothing treatment involves gently inserting a lit candle into the outer ear passage. The flame creates a ‘chimney effect’ generating a massage like effect on the eardrum. The treatment is very relaxing and may balance pressure in the ears and sinuses, induce freer nasal breathing and help to clear earwax. It is not suitable for clients with a perforated eardrum, grommets or inflammation in the ear.
In order to provide a high quality treatment I prefer to treat holistic therapy patients in the clinic setting. Here I have access to a massage couch, reflexology chair and a large selection of aromatherapy oils.
However in exceptional circumstances I may be able to provide an adapted treatment in your own home. A home visit charge will be added to the treatment price to allow for travelling time and expenses.
Tibetan Acupressure Head Massage
Tibetan acupressure head massage is a blend of modern,western methods combined with genuine Tibetan acupressure techniques incorporating the traditional principles and theories of ancient Tibetan medicine.
The therapy is performed fully clothed and includes massage of the scalp,face,shoulders and upper arms.
