The Health Agency launch new Complimentary Therapies

The Health Agency has announced they will be adding Sports and Remedial massage to their existing range of complementary therapies on offer to local residents and workers.

The new therapies, which will be joining Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology are offered at a discounted rate (on a sliding scale from a donation of £10 through to £30, depending on your income) so you can choose to actively manage your own health and wellbeing.

All therapists are professionally qualified insured and experienced.

MASSAGE: While it benefits the injured, the ill and the stressed, the strength of massage therapy in preventing illness and conditions before they develop cannot be overlooked. It can help to reduce or eliminate pain, improve circulation and immune system function, improve joint mobility, reduce physical and mental tension, and increase lymphatic drainage and increase mind-body awareness.

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE: Uses plant, tree and flower organic essential oils, chosen for their many medicinal properties. The blend created will have 2-4 oils, chosen to support specific health needs and a fit with what the client wants to have supported.

HOLISTIC MASSAGE: Invites you to think about how you’d like to feel after the session as there are a range of treatments available. Conversation is not encouraged so you can focus on using your breath to connect within and help release as much tension as possible during the treatment so that you can absorb the benefits of the massage.

It works on mental, physical and emotional levels at the same time.

Can be delivered clothed, seated or in a lying position with or without oil.

REFLEXOLOGY: Is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of the feet, or palms of your hands known as reflex zones – containing millions of nerve endings – correspond to other parts of the body. It can boost sluggish circulation and is useful for treating stress, back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, respiratory issues, bladder issues, menopausal and period pain, anxiety, migraine, poor digestion and headaches.

Is usually delivered in a supported reclining or lying position and is clothed except the feet are uncovered for the use of talc or lotion.

SPORTS and REMEDIAL MASSAGE: Offers a range of treatments which loosens up tight muscles, break up adhesions in muscle fibres, and generally focus on restoring and/or maintaining the full functionality of your muscles. It can help your muscles perform better and prevent injury. Muscle injuries will often heal more effectively with the help of sports massage. Some treatments will be delivered clothed. Conditions which may benefit include sore lower back, sciatic pain, neck/shoulder pain, tension headaches, tight calves and/or hamstrings, knee and other joint pain
