A warm welcome to The Holistic Room at Therapy-First

We all experience some degree of stress in our daily lives, and whilst good stress leaves us feeling motivated and improves our mood, negative stress manifests in various ways from headaches and irritability, to tension in the body usually found in the neck, shoulders and lower back. As our body prepares to ‘fight or flight’, our immune systems can become compromised which can lead to illness.

At Therapy First we carry out an in-depth consultation prior to having any treatment, Our therapist can help identify some of the areas which may require additional focus and dedicate more time to these points to help stimulate the body’s defences to bring you back towards balance. Additional aftercare advice is always offered at the end of every treatment.

Treatments range from Indian Head Massage using oils blended to your specific needs, Ear Candling, Holistic Massage, Reiki and Reflexology.

In the oil based treatments, carrier oils are selected according to your skin type, or combined to provide the maximum benefits.

Where Aromatherapy oils are used, all essential oils are of a high quality & where possible organic or wild-crafted.

All treatments are subject to advance bookings. Home visits are available.


Reflexology is a therapy in which pressure is applied to the reflex points on the feet and hands by the methodical application of gentle pressure by the therapist using fingers and thumbs over all areas of the client’s feet and ankles (or hands if appropriate).   It is based on the principle that these reflex points are related to the internal organs and glands and are laid out in the same arrangement as that in the physical body, forming a ‘mirror image’ of the body.  Pressure or palpation on a reflex point can therefore affect these structures.  Reflexology can help to reduce stress and releases negative tension and toxins from the body.  This treatment helps to stimulate the normal function of the organ involved and thus aids self-healing, bringing about physical and mental well-being.  Reflexology promotes and encourages total body relaxation and restful sleep,  if you sleep well you function better. Reflexology may be suitable for all age groups.

What are Hopi Candles?

Hopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities. It is important to note that the candle does not suck wax out of the ear; it stimulates the ear to eliminate the wax naturally, ensuring maximum safety. Hopi candles can be used for many conditions including deafness caused by excess wax, congested sinuses, irritation in the ears, ringing or noises in the ears, tinnitus, rhinitis, glue ear, colds, flu, headaches and migraines. As their action is so gentle, they are particularly suitable for children.

In most cases the treatment is extremely soothing and relaxing, leaving the patient with a sense of well-being and reduced pressure in the ears or head. A little warmth is felt, and hissing and crackling noises are heard, with a little popping. Most people say that it is a very pleasant experience!

The initial effect can be an improvement in hearing or freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell. However, improvements can continue occurring for a day or two.
