Complementary Therapy

Complementary therapies are a range of therapeutic treatments that work alongside the conventional medicine that you receive from your doctor to support your wellbeing. A Complementary Therapist practises holistically and therefore takes into account symptoms of the mind and body and will consider all aspects of an individual’s lifestyle, including diet and work life balance.

Many people use remedial massage therapies to support a huge variety of health concerns from debilitating headaches, the draining effects of anxiety and stress, and helping to cope with the emotional and physical symptoms relating to prolonged illness of Cancer and Cancer treatment.
The benefits of Complementary Therapies have become more widely recognised in recent years and are used in a variety of different healthcare settings to assist our mind and the body’s natural performance, by helping us to relax and unwind enabling restoration and a feeling of being better.

Quality of life is one of the most important aspects to living, particularly as many people live busy lives, getting the balance right helps us to feel in control of our life and therefore reduces unnecessary worry and potential symptoms of stress or dis-ease.

In turn these types of treatments will help you to feel rested and may help you to manage aspects of your life, to achieve a better balance. Complementary Therapies are comforting and soothing to the mind and body and this in turn can be invigorating and help you to feel refreshed.

Psychological benefits include, calming and uplifting the mood which enhances the feeling of wellbeing and aids general relaxation. Massage can help to alleviate lethargy, irritability and tiredness, giving a sense of renewed energy. Some of the physical benefits associated with complementary therapies are pain relief from types of common conditions like generalised muscular aches and strains.

This will include a consultation free of charge to inform you about your chosen treatment and to allow me to learn a little about you.
