Treatments

Massage and holistic treatments are an effective and enjoyable antidote to stress.

An occasional session on the couch is like a holiday for body and soul. Time to rest, relax and recuperate.

Committing to a course of treatment or a regular appointment is a great investment in your wellbeing.

Tension in the body builds up and leads to tension in the mind and vice-versa.

Unresolved chronic tension from stress, repetitive strain related to our occupations or exercise, postural misalignment, unhappiness, accidents and injuries, operations, trauma etc can lead to significant restrictions. 

By regularly releasing tension with treatments you have the opportunity to re-set, re-balance and prevent future problems
