About the service: We offer a range of evidence-based therapies including massage and reflexology. You will unwind in an unhurried atmosphere of comfort and care, leaving the stresses of the everyday world behind you in our relaxing therapy centres.
Complementary Therapy: There are many forms of complementary therapy, including reflexology, and several types of massage. The primary purpose of these therapies is to encourage and promote relaxation of the body and mind. This is based on the view that the mind and body are inextricably linked and the health of one is interdependent on the health of the other.
The Process: Following your referral the practitioner will carry out an in-depth consultation at the beginning of your first session to establish your emotional and physical needs. This will allow the practitioner to tailor the treatment plan to meet your individual requirements. It also means developing the optimum plan for your wellbeing. Your practitioner is qualified and experienced. You will be offered a course of treatments which consists of six sessions, one per week, each lasting 60 minutes.
Confidentiality: All practitioners are highly qualified and are members of recognised regulating bodies such as the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and all adhere to a strict code of conduct and ethics.
