Holistic Treatment Information
Aromatherapy is a form of complementary medicine which uses essential oils (extracted from plants) to heal the body and rebalance the mind. As with many 'alternative' forms of healing, each aromatherapy treatment is unique to the individual concerned. Aromatherapists assess your condition and then prepare a blend of essential oils tailor-made to your requirements. Treatment usually involves massage or inhalation of the oils - despite the inference in the name, aromatherapy, that it is a scent-based form of therapy, the oils actually work mainly through absorption through the skin.

Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs.
Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.
Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Taking a holistic view, the Osteopath is able to assess any underlying conditions which may be having an impact, on what seems to be, a totally unrelated area. Advice can also be given on self-help treatments. Osteopathy is suitable for all members of the family.
Osteopathy is suitable to treat of number of conditions, including, but not limited to:
What to expect
In some cases the Osteopath may need to refer to your GP for further consultation and / or a second opinion which may be helpful in solving your problem. As with your GP, all personal and clinical information is dealt with in the strictest confidence.

A course of reflexology aims to release those blockages in the flow of energy to restore your body to its ideal state. The benefits of reflexology include the following: it relaxes, balances & harmonises the body; strengthens the entire body and supports the body in its own healing process; provides an opportunity to de-stress & release tension; helps you to maintain a good general health by relieving the body of toxins; encourages a healthy immune system to fight infection.
