Holistic therapies help our body’s systems to function more efficiently and can offer a much needed sanctuary from the frantic rush of life. They can also play a role in healing the body from common ailments in particular those related to stress and anxiety. My aim as a therapist is to provide complementary therapies where you feel you are treated as an individual and in a holistic manner which considers the person as a whole. Having regular massage treatments can help you to stay balanced both physically and mentally with studies suggesting that massage therapy can significantly reduce stress and be effective in helping to support people with certain chronic conditions such as low back pain.

I also provide massage treatments for adults with learning and physical disabilities … the sense of touch is a highly sensitive and powerful form of communication with results evident in my work with them. I have previous experience supporting adults in a day care setting but more recently, visiting people with profound & multiple disabilities in their homes to provide regular treatments. Massage can induce a sense of calmness and also provide valuable physical contact. It can also improve muscle function, flexibility and range of motion for those confined to a wheelchair who may be suffering from atrophied muscle tone and reduced circulation.

I use only cold pressed oils and organic products as I believe they are more effective simply because they are made with ingredients that enhance the skin’s natural function rather than work against it. Having a massage in the comfort of your own home is the ultimate in convenience as you no longer need to waste time and effort travelling to appointments or hunting for a parking space … and you won’t have to venture outside into the cold afterwards! If you have any questions about any of the therapies I offer please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes, Sam
