Information About the Therapies

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on therapy that can support individuals in moving toward greater health and well-being.

Shiatsu offers psychological benefits to the client by reducing the negative mood states of tension and fatigue, whilst also maintaining a high level of vigour and a positive mood state.

Shiatsu can help with a wide variety of problems including:

  • Emotional difficulties; stress, anxiety, irritability and depression.
  • Musculo-skeletal issues; muscular tension, acute/chronic neck and back ache.
  • poor posture, sciatica and joint problems.
  • Women’s health; PMT, and menopause.
  • Digestive problems; IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, lack of appetite, acid refluxes.
  • Respiratory disorders.
  • Headaches and migraines.
  • Low energy levels.
  • Insomnia.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating needles on various points on the body to relieve pain, or for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture can reduce anxiety and stress and can increase energy and vitality. It can also aide the client in sleeping better and regaining a more normal appetite. Because MS damages myelin in the central nervous system, the disease interferes with messages between the body and the brain.

Acupuncture can mediate the effects of this disease because it releases endorphins and peptides in the brain, which modulate sensory information between the brain and body.

 

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy uses physical methods, such as massage and manipulation, to promote healing and well being. Physiotherapy treatments are often used to help restore a person’s range of movements after illness or injury.

Physiotherapy can be key to restoring and maintaining a healthy level of function by; reducing pain, improving joint (including spinal) range of movement, increasing strength, maintaining independence and completion of activities of daily living, treating chronic pain, reducing headaches and vertigo symptoms, and improving cardio-respiratory function.

 

Massage

Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well being. The benefits of massage are pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart-rate.

 

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage includes massage of the shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face, ears, and energy balancing. Indian Head Massage has many benefits including providing relief from aches and pains, insomnia, and stress symptoms. It can also soothe, comfort, promote hair growth, and re-balance the client’s energy flow, which can give a deep sense of peace, calm, and tranquility.

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the hands and feet, utilizing specific hand, finger, and thumb techniques without the use of oil, cream, or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the hands and feet, with a premise that this will effect a physical change in the body.

There are many benefits of reflexology including pain reduction, a greater feeling of relaxation, an amelioration of health concerns, and an improvement of blood flow. Reflexology can also have an impact on physiological measures, such as blood pressure and cholesterol, and can help to enhance medical care and benefit mental health.

 

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a holistic system of treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It maintains that the good health and harmonious interrelation of skeleton, ligaments, muscles, and connective tissues are crucial to an individual’s well being.

Osteopathy can reduce pain and inflammation, reduce stiffness and increase mobility and improve stability of muscles and joints. It improves general health and well-being by enhancing blood flow and the functioning of nerves to all areas of the body, and it engages the body’s own healing mechanism.
