Complementary Therapies have become more popular in recent years as people look for alternative ways to boost their health and well being. I feel that Complementary Therapies should be seen not just as a “treat” but as a regular part of our lives in today’s stressful and fast paced world. Stressful living and long working hours can have a negative effect on our bodies. Complementary Therapy is used by people for a variety of reasons. Some use it alongside conventional medical care, to help them manage or cope with a specific physical, mental or emotional problem. Others use it as means of relaxation, or to help maintain good health and a sense of general well-being
Complementary Therapies work along side medical treatments or consultation, not to replace them. A therapist would never advise to reduce or stop taking any prescribed medication and would suggest a G.P. appointment if she/he felt it neccessary. Complemetary Therapies use a holistic approach. The word holistic is from the greek word “holos” meaning whole, which looks at a person as a whole incorporating mind, body and spirit.
A medical history is always taken at the first meeting, but I will ask on contact if there are any on-going medical conditions and if any regular medication is taken. Those who have a medical condition, who are taking medication, are pregnant or breast feeding should consult their GP, midwife or other health professional before having Complementary Therapies. At subsequent visits you will be asked how you felt after the previous treatment and if there have been any changes to your health. All information given is in strict confidence and will be treated as such.
