Treatments We Offer

Aromatherapy


Aromatherapy is an ancient treatment used to enhance wellbeing, and to relieve the symptoms of many acute and chronic conditions. Aromatherapy oils are the pure essences found in flowers, plants, fruits and herbs and are used in many ways including massage and inhalation.




Reflexology


Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive holistic therapy for the mind, body and spirit. It is believed that various parts of the feet correspond with parts of the body. It helps the body to naturally restore its balance, relieves tension and stress, enhances sleep pattern and improves mood. Treatment may also bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.




Manual Lymphatic Drainage


Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a skin movement technique that consists of slow, repetitive, and rhythmical hand movements which stretch the skin and stimulate contractions of the lymphatic vessels. This removes excess fluid and waste products from the body's tissue into the lymphatic system. The fluid drains through the lymph nodes, where it is filtered and cleansed of bacteria, waste and dead cells, before being returned to the blood stream. It alleviates fluid congestion, such as swollen ankles and is deeply relaxing. It may also help with inflammatory conditions, post-operative swelling and bruising, sprains and torn ligaments, the healing of fractures and pain relief.




Indian Head Massage


Indian Head Massage is a relaxing ancient, therapeutic treatment that consists of a deep tissue massage with varying pressure to relieve aches, pains and tension in the neck, back and shoulders. It also stimulates blood and lymphatic flow and may reduce spasms and inflammation while increasing oxygenation in the upper body.




Compression Garment Fitting Service


Compression Garment Measuring is for people with lymphedema (swelling that often affects the legs in particular), and we offer this service is conjunction with Juzo, a leading garment compression company.
