My life’s work revolves around the belief that we are holistic beings who function at our best when balanced in mind body and spirit. Life itself brings many challenges and some of these cause imbalances in one or more of our physical, mental, and emotional systems. Whilst orthodox medicine has much to offer, it can often fail to address the underlying emotional and mental issues involved in lethargy, fatigue, depression, anxiety, migraines and other forms of illness.
Research is now showing that Complementary therapies can play an important part in encouraging the body back to homeostasis. As a qualified professional holistic therapist I offer the following treatments for your wellbeing;
Reflexology -the feet good factor, did you know we walk an average of four times round the world in our lifetime?.This treatment encourages the elimination of toxins and removes energy blockages.
Aromatherapy- a soothing body massage with individually chosen essential oils to promote circulation and support mental physical and emotional issues.
Hot Stones – Basalt stones giving a warm rushing heat as they are massaged into the body with natural oils.
Indian Head Massage - a relaxing de stressing treatment that brings calmness and clarity to the mind, ready for the next big project or to simply re invent you.
Lymph Drainage- helping to clear blocked lymph glands by gentle pressure.
Auricular Therapy – pinpointing areas of the ear that feature in specific health issues.
Combination Therapies – These are shorter less intensive treatments that include several of the modalities on offer in milder form. This results in specific areas of the body being addressed for a more acute synergy.
I offer treatments to clients who simply want to de-stress and be soothed with hot stones or aromatherapy massage with essential oils, and to those who need a more specific treatment package for medically diagnosed health conditions including depression, anxiety, fatigue and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I always work alongside doctor’s advice and prescribed medication to maximise client’s wellbeing.
I have a Post Graduate qualification in working with depression, anxiety and other symptoms of P.T.S.D. I have Degree in Complementary Therapies and am currently studying for a BSc Hons in Professional Health. I am fully registered and insured with The Federation of Holistic Therapists, have a mentor, and am in regular supervision. Anything else you need to know about me and the holistic treatments on offer at Therapy First can be explained at your first visit. I encourage you to give more to yourself so that you can give more to others. Thank you for reading this, I look forward to meeting you soon.
