Our massage treatments all aim to leave you feeling soothed, relaxed and revitalised. They are marvellous for relieving aching backs, shoulders and necks and for helping the flexibility of joints. They improve circulation, speed the recovery of injured muscles, tendons and ligaments and they soothe the nervous system, which in turn has a beneficial effect on digestion and sleep patterns. Massage is an excellent maintenance treatment.
Our massage treatments include sports massage, remedial massage and therapeutic massage.
Pilates incorporates many forms of exercise including resistance work as well as martial arts and yoga to improve overall strength and muscle tone as well as balance, posture and flexibility. Pilates has the added benefit of helping to relieve stress and tension as well as relieve common aches and pain associated with static postures or repetitive movements experienced in work or as part of everyday life.
All levels from beginner to advanced are welcome as we provide small individually tailored Pilates sessions in the form of one-to-one or small classes onsite.
Counselling is often called the “talking therapy”, or simply a conversation that attempts to help us make sense of our lives, what is causing distress or pain. If you would like to have that conversation, counselling offers you a place to explore difficulties in your life with someone who is trained to neither judge nor advise you, but may help you unlock your feelings and come to understand more about yourself. No problem is too small or trivial to bring to counselling. If it is troubling you then it is important.
Research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. In effect, it stimulates the body’s own healing response and ability to gain pain relief which, can in turn, promote normal function.
The process involves stimulation of appropriate acupuncture points usually with needles or massage (acupressure).
Acupuncture is administered as part of a planned physiotherapy treatment programme that may include a range of other treatment techniques such as exercise, manual therapy, heat, and ultrasound. A typical course of treatment for a chronic condition would be dependent on the condition and this would be agreed following an initial assessment.
