Reflexology - suitable for all ages and may help bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. To aid Wellbeing. Pressure techniques on the hands and feet, working on reflex points and help to naturally restore your own healthy balance. The treatment is adapted to the individual, generally 45-50minute treatment to aid relaxation.
Vertical Reflex Therapy - a short but effective treatment while standing or sitting, providing deeper access to reflex points, with relaxing and non-invasive techniques. Methods may also be used to enhance a conventional reflexology treatment. VRT's therapeutic response often appears to be quicker possibly because all the anatomic nerves in the feet and hands become sensitised when weight -bearing which may increase the therapeutic response. This method was first discovered by Lynne Booth, gaining a Highly Commended Award for its Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine by the Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine 2011 Awards.
Microsystems Ear Acupuncture - Protocol to support clients experiencing stress or anxiety. -
using up to five very fine, sterile needles in each ear for 30-45mins, while resting, it is a relatively noninvasive technique.

The treatment offered promotes relaxation and aims to ease symptoms such as headaches, tension and insomnia.
