For October our blog focuses on massage and reflexology at the Centre, which are provided by Pat Miller, Donna Walker and Victoria Lily.
In this article Victoria gives us a brief introduction into both of these complementary therapies.
The term massage covers many different types of treatment, all of which involve the rubbing and kneading of soft tissues and muscles in the body. This helps to promote healing and enhance the health and wellbeing of each person.
The therapists at WCHC practice various different types of massage treatment including sports massage, aromatherapy, deep tissue and ayurvedic treatments. When you come for your initial consultation the therapist will have a chat with you to determine how they can benefit you and which massage techniques will be best. Massage can be deeply relaxing and rejuvenating for both the body and mind.
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy based on the theory that there are many points on the feet, lower legs, hands, face and ears that relate to different areas of the body. It is thought that by applying pressure to these points, the relating point on the body can be re-balanced and made well.
Reflexology is usually practiced on the feet. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients to treat many different issues. Reflexology can be deeply relaxing and re-balancing for the body, creating a space for the body to be able to heal itself naturally.
