What are Complimentary Therapies?

Complimentary Therapies tend to take a holistic approach to your physical and mental health. This means that they consider all aspects of your physical and emotional wellbeing as a whole, rather than treating particular symptoms separately. 

Many complementary therapies concentrate on relaxation and reducing stress. They might help to calm your emotions, relieve anxiety, and increase your general sense of health and well being.

Complimentary therapies may be used as an alternative or alongside other conventional medicines or treatments.

In general, complementary approaches may provide one or more of these health benefits:

  • Relieves pain.
  • Reduces anxiety and stress.

Can they help with Mental Health?

Complementary and alternative therapies can be used as a treatment for both physical and mental health problems.

Some people also find they can help with sleep problems, relaxation and feelings of stress.

Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex zones in the feet which are linked by energy pathways to corresponding parts of the body.  When these​ energy lines are blocked, disease occurs and often the body becomes unbalanced eg. headaches, sinus blockages and so on. When the energy lines are worked on in a reflexology routine they become unblocked and energy can flow freely again which brings a balanced harmony to the body and mind.

Crystal Body and Chakra Healing helps to rebalance your body and mind using crystals and singing bowls.
