I specialise in treating stress, pain and discomfort. The therapies above are beneficial for headaches, sleep problems, chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, arthritis, MS, muscle cramps, digestive problems, pain, wound healing, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, anxiety, depression and many more.
They are suitable for anyone of all ages, whether you feel you just need time-out and relaxation, management of a condition or a course of treatment for something specific. The holistic approach treats the whole person - body, mind and spirit. After a consultation and assessment, we will choose the best treatment for you to support your body in order to regain its natural balance (homeostasis) and boost its own healing abilities.
