Therapies Available

H​ere is a brief description of the therapies we offer, please ask your therapist for more information at your appointment. Leaflets are available for you to take home.

Aromatherapy

This is a holistic therapy which uses blends of essential oils to benefit the whole person,physically, mentally and emotionally. The essential oils are derived from flowers and plants.

 The fragrances of the essential oils stimulate the part of the brain concerned with sense of smell which is linked to the area concerning memory, emotion and behaviour. 

Certain aromas can trigger pleasant memories which can improve our mood and help to counteract stress. 

A personalised blend can be used for massage, in an oil diffuser or to use in the bath. 

Aromatherapy massage is soothing & relaxing and works from feet to head. Generally the abdomen and face are included in a treatment, although if you prefer these areas can be avoided.

Sports Therapy

Sports therapy uses a range of therapeutic techniques for the prevention, recognition and treatment of minor sports injuries.

The treatment session involves a range of soft tissue therapy techniques including:

  • Myofascial release
  • Proprioceptive neuro-facilitation
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Soft tissue release
  • Soft tissue mobilisation

which aim to release tension in the muscles, lengthen muscle fibres and improve circulation in the tissues. 

Joint mobilisations can help to improve the range of movement in the affected joints. Exercises and stretches are usually given to help with strength and movement as part of rehabilitation.

Reflexology

This is an ancient therapy in which the therapist uses their fingers and thumbs to apply precise alternating pressure to specific areas on the hands and feet. These areas correspond to the various body systems. Sensations felt in the feet/hands by the client or therapist may indicate an imbalance in these areas. Working these areas may help to restore balance to the body.

The client remains clothed except for shoes and socks/tights.  feet are cleansed prior to treatment.

 I use Songbird Reflexology wax with shea butter, tea tree and peppermint essential oils to soothe and moisturise your feet.

Therapeutic Massage

This is a massage treatment tailored to the individual. Following a thorough consultation, the therapist will use a variety of massage techniques to address any muscular strains experienced by the client.

 A selection of vegetable oils and waxes are used as a massage medium to the allow the massage to flow smoothly and benefit the skin. These are chosen to suit your skin type.
