Complementary Therapies

Complementary Therapies are often used to help support mental health symptoms like anxiety, depression, and sleep problems, and also physical conditions that can be made worse by stress such as IBS, skin conditions, muscle tension and general feelings of stress.  They can also support and work towards managing chronic conditions or eliminating minor ailments. At the very least they go a long way towards helping improve general well-being. 

During Psychotherapy it may become important to implement a complementary therapy right there in the session, sometimes aiming to reduce physical stress, sometimes to give an experience so you can see what the therapies feel like and what they're about. Sometimes you may wish to seek additional therapy of this nature with my colleague who provides thearpies in this area without the psychological aspect involved.

Indian Head Massage

Tension held in the upper areas of the body such as shoulders, neck and scalp can be relieved by Indian Head Massage.
This ancient therapy works with the power of touch to induce calming endorphins and physically reduce the tension in the areas worked upon.
Sometimes tension can create further problems in the body and if a person has a tendancy to hold their tension in the shoulders, neck and head the discomfort can be very uncomfortable.
Indian Head Massage is usually used to ease physical tension, muscle aches and pain, tightness, headaches, migraines and sleep difficulties.

Reflexology

Reflexology is massage and manipulation of trigger /reflex points in the feet to stimulate healing in the body.
It is a relaxing therapy which people use to work on the nervous system to help calm the nervous system and stimulate the body to 'do what it's meant to be doing'.  
People often use this therapy to aid problems such as sleep difficulties, IBS, high blood pressure, stress, balance hormones, headaches, anxiety and depression.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of oils derived from flowers used on the body or in the air to improve well-being of the body or mind. The oils are often used in massage to help target physical symptoms such as improving circulation or supporting menopause.
Many people already use Aromatherapy just by putting the scent into the air such as with Olbas oil to clear nasal mucus and lavender oil to encourage sleep.
Aromatherapy is used at my practice if appropriate to ease emotions and support sleep issues

Alternative Medicine

Similar to Complementary Health therapies which are used alonside conventional medicine, alternative medicines provide natural treatments, often instead of medicines and operations. Certain conditions are particularly responsive to altervative medicines.
