Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I have an ethical and holistic approach to life and actively promote compassion for all living things.
The holistic therapies I offer are natural, gentle and non-invasive, as well as soothing, calming and balancing. By working on all levels, physical, mental and emotional, our therapies help to bring the body back into balance, boost the immune system and support the body's natural ability to heal itself. This is achieved by: encouraging relaxation, relieving tension and stress, aiding sleep, improving mood and increasing a sense of well-being.
Stress, both mental and physical is a major factor in causing the body to become out of balance. The tension it causes has effects throughout the systems of the body. When the system ceases to function effectively and efficiently, the imbalance begins to drain the body's vital energy and immunity, making it more likely for disease to occur.
