COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES

OUR MOST POPULAR SERVICES

Many complementary therapies concentrate on inducing relaxation and reducing stress. This strengthens the immune system and helps to calm the emotions, relieve anxiety and increase general sense of health and well being.

Most people wait until a condition or illness has developed before seeking help but wouldn’t it be more sensible to take early action, as soon as the warning signs appear?

Calming the mind, body and spirit, taking time to relax and finding the time for a regular appointment can prove to be of great benefit.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Anyone who are interested in improving or maintaining their health and well-being. Our clients range in age from children to seniors.

In general terms if you are looking for relief from a physical condition such as muscle tension, muscle stiffness we recommend Massage Therapy, If you are looking for relief from headaches, migraines, stress, improved sleep and enhanced relaxation we recommend Vibrational Therapies, however because we take a holistic approach the long term treatment plan will be unique to each individual client and may require a mix of physical treatment options such as Massage Therapy and energetic treatment options such as Vibrational Therapies. We are happy to to discuss your requirements and offer our advice on which treatment option would be best and most suitable for you and your expectations.

You will be asked to complete a thorough consultation prior to your appointment to determine exactly what your expectations from treatment are and what areas we need to address in your treatment plan. We will discuss the findings with you and together we will create a short, medium and long term treatment plan. You will not have to undress unless your appointment is for Massage Therapy and even then we respect your modesty, covering you with towels on those areas not being treated, however you will be asked to remove shoes, jewellery, belts and ties to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Please come wearing loose, comfortable and warm clothing when attending appointments with us.

It depends on your insurance policy as different companies offer different levels and types of cover for treatments. We can provide you with a receipt for any treatments you have for you to submit to your insurance company in support of your claim but we would recommend checking with your insurer before booking an appointment.

We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time as we are still adhering to close contact guidelines with regards to hygiene, cleaning protocals and best practice in terms of health and safety. 

The cost of treatment varies and depends on the type of treatment, duration and cost of provision. Prices start from £30.

A contra-indication is an existing medical condition or illness that could be made worse by treatment, or be a possible cause of cross-infection and contamination. As a result, the treatment may not be possible at all or it may be adapted and special precautions taken. In some cases, it may be necessary for the therapist to seek professional medical advice and a GP referral may be required. This is why we carry out a thorough consultation with every new client to establish if an contra-indications exist and enable us to determine the best course of action.

Reasons vary from individual to individual but in our experience the majority of clients choose to see a complementary therapist to combat the symptoms of stress due to the pace and pressure of modern life. The main reason our clients choose to see us are for the benefits that the services we provide offer including stress reduction, recovery from injury, increase in flexibility and mobility, relief from chronic problems such as arthritis, improved sleep, enhanced relaxation, personal development and many more.

You can expect to feel calm and relaxed during and immediately after a treatment but medium to long terms results such as pain relief and stress management can take a while to build, especially for persistent or chronic health conditions. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were you. Each time you have a treatment, drink enough water, eat the right kinds of foods and get enough deep sleep you move closer to wellness. We offer short, medium and long term treatment plans and regularly review these to ensure your needs are being met.

Yes, not only is it safe but beneficial as long as you check with your GP or Oncologist that it is ok to go ahead before booking an appointment. In fact Christies Hospital, has its own Complementary Therapies unit and Macmillans Cancer Support has lots of helpful information regarding complementary therapies and coping with cancer on its website. Our owner, Joanne Lee is qualified in Oncology Massage too so you are in safe hands.

We allow clients a maximum 10 minutes grace however we will be unable to see clients who are more than 10 minutes late as this would cause delays to our next client and compromise our high standards of hygiene. Clients who are late will still be charged for the full price of the treatment.

We are happy to rearrange your appointment to another day or time providing to give us 24 hours notice. Cancellations received with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a charge of 50% of the original appointment cost.

HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnotherapy is a gentle, effective way to explore and understand why you react to things in your life as you do. Lack of confidence, stress, panic attacks and phobias all have underlying reasons and analytical hypnotherapy will identify the issues that we carry with us from our own past experiences.

Stop smoking and weight loss are also easily managed. Understanding the emotional influence on smoking and over eating will enable you to update previous messages and habits.
