Holistic treatment

I provide Complementary and Holistic treatments
To treat you as an individual with
bespoke treatments to suit your current needs and goals.
What is a Complementary treatment?

A Complementary treatment is a treatment that is not generally provided by

mainstream or conventional medicine practices such as your GP or hospital.

Complementary treatments are given to complement any existing

medical, surgical, complementary or alternatice treatments you are currently

receiving or as a standalone treatment.

For example, Complementary treatments complement:

Surgery - providing aftercare to reduce and improve bruising, inflammation,

scarring, emotional and mental upset

Muscularskeletal injuries - to reduce aches and pains; improve mobility and flexibility;

improve balance and co-ordination

A complementary treatment will complement any treatments that you are self administering

such as pain relief, heat pads, KT tape,  walking aids, exercise, meditation and diet.

What is a Holistic treatment?

A Holistic treatment is ideal for anyone, whether just for a body balance, to help you relax or to

help with a chronic or actute illness or injury.

 

Various techniques may be used to to promote healing and to get the body back into balance;

not just in the problem area but for the whole body and mind.

Many chronic illnesses and injuries start to affect other parts of the

body and it is important that these are also addressed to ensure the best outcome

It is important to realise that chronic and acute illness and injury have an affect

on our everyday lives and so affect our mental and emotional state aswell

as our physical bodies. Having a Holistic treatment will help balance the body and mind.

During the treatment one or more therapies may be used depending

upon your preference, state of health and position of your injury.

Descriptions of each of these can be found under Therapies.

An holistic treatment will always be a bespoke treatment

using various therapies that are appropriate

for your current state of health on the day and your health goal.

Who can benefit from a Complementary Holistic treatment?

Anyone, from someone who has an annoying pain in their neck, stress, digestive problems,

post surgery injuries to someone who has multiple long term problems such as Parkinsons

or Multiple Sclerosis can benefit.

All my treatments are tailored to you and the therapies used will be suitable for your

current state of health and also your own comfort.

Where possible you will remain dressed and I can use therapies and techniques

which can be used effectively over clothes.

Treatments may be given with you lying on your back, side or front, or seated a couch

or, seated in a chair or wheelchair.

You may be given exercises to do between treatments to continue the progress made

through the treatment and keep the injured area as mobile as possible. This will help to

speed up and support the recovery of the injured area.

Benefits of a Complementary Holistic Treatment

A Complementary Holistic treatment not only treats the area where you currently have pain

and restriction but will also look at other areas which may be the original cause of the

problem. Some pain may be referred pain and/or a secondary injury from an old

What to expect at your appointment

We will discuss your current concerns, your previous medical details and your expectations of the treatment. Please bear in mind that you may need further treatments

in order to notice a long term difference.

Acute conditions and injuries that you have had for 3 months or less are likely to be cleared quicker.

If you have a chronic condition where you have been in pain for a months or years, then you

will likely need more treatments over a longer period of time.

If you are concerned about how the treatment may affect you, then please discuss this with

me as I can adapt the treatment or use a different therapy to suit your specific

health condition and symptoms and stay within your comfort zone.

If you are not able to lie or sit in a particular position please

let me know, so that you can be comfortable during the treatment.

Many of my treatments do not require you to undress and where you do need to undress

it will be only as necessary and your sensitive areas will be covered at all times with a towel or blanket.

Please remember that when you come for a treatment it is your time, for you.

If you would like a specific treatment, need to go to the toilet, need to move regularly,

do not feel comfortable at any time or feel too hot or too cold, please let me know.
