Holistic Therapy 

The holistic approach to health takes into account the whole person, mind, body and soul, including lifestyle rather than just focusing on the symptom or the 'part' that has the problem. If one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (example physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. The way you sit or stand  can impact on your back, neck and shoulders very easily, the way you walk or run, even the way you lie at night, stress often manifests pain in the body too, anxiety and feeling out of sync are other causes of imbalance leading to referred pain.

 

Holistic therapists believe that the body has a vital force or life energy. It is this force that protects the body from disease and allows it to heal. One can achieve optimal health -- the primary goal of holistic practice -- by gaining proper balance in life.
Holistic therapists aim to help the client restore the balance, thus allowing the body to help to heal itself, naturally.

 

Holistic therapy is also known as Complementary Therapy as it can work alongside medical care, though it may require a Drs permission.

What is wellness?

According to Dr Hettler of the National Wellness Institute, wellness consists of six dimensions, Social, Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Occupational and Spiritual.
 

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Holistic therapy can help with re-balancing of the above dimensions.

What you need to know

No therapy is a replacement for medical advice or medication. If you are under the Dr or Consultant for any reason you should get a Drs permission, this can be done verbally.

At the time of booking a therapy you MUST also book an online consultation session and your aftercare session.

  • All therapies are preceded by an online consultation this is to cut down time spent in close proximity, I will be unable to conduct a consultation face to face so you MUST book a consultation time prior to your appointment .

  • You will be required to wear a face covering (mask) until you are laying face down on the couch

  • You must bring your own water I will be unable to provide this

  • You will be required to sanitise your hands and wash them (both available in the hut)

  • Some therapies are not available at this time and have been removed, some will be available later. 

  • Before a therapy please ensure you wear loose clothing, have showered recently, my couch can take weight up to 26 stone, if you believe you are heavier or are not sure you MUST check before attending.

  • NHS staff or carers must not come straight from work but I ask them to change first and those dealing directly with COVID19 patients to shower before attending, it would be preferable for you to book at the end of the day.

  • If you are a vulnerable person its better if you book for the first appointment of the day to keep you as safe as possible.

  • I will be wearing a face mask and visor along with gloves

  • Session times are shorter 45 mins hands on

  • After care session must also be booked online as again I will be unable to provide this face to face.

  •  If you are having a reflexology foot massage please do not book if you have verrucas, athletes foot or any other foot fungal issue.

  • Massage cannot take place if you have sunburn, it will only make it worse and possibly make you feel ill

  • Payment is online , contactless Card or BACs

  • Entry is by way of the GREEN side gate, please do not be more than 5 mins early for your appointment.

  • Please do not have a heavy meal or alcohol before your massage, it can make you feel ill and you may get a headache.
