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.
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
To complement treatments that you are currently self administering
such as pain relief, heat pads, KT tape, walking aids, meditation, 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.
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 several 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 Treatments.
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 the treatments are bespoke and the therapies used will be suitable for your
current state of health and also your own comfort.
Where possible you can stay 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.
