The following complementary therapies are available at WHISC’s Bold Street premises:
Aromatherapy combines massage with pure essential oils, which are specifically blended to suit individual needs. They can ease stress, relieve muscle tension, and stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage. Regular treatments can benefit people with a wide range of complaints, help calm the mind, relax the body and boost energy levels.
Thai massage is performed fully clothed and uses stretching, pulling and rocking techniques to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion. The therapist uses their hands, knees, legs and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilisation and acupressure. Thai massage also uses energy work to correct blockages, deficiencies and imbalances in the flow of energy around the body to improve the client’s health.
Reiki is a very popular form of ‘Hands on Healing.’ Energy is said to be transferred to the client via the practitioner by placing hands on or above the head and body in various positions, aiding deep relaxation, helping many physical/emotional problems, and promoting wellbeing.
Swedish massage is a gentle, relaxing and rewarding treatment that stimulates the circulation system and eases tension.
- Sports & Remedial
Sports massage involves the manipulation of soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and tendons to restore and/or achieve optimum muscle function. It can help to prevent injury or to promote recovery from injury by improving muscle tone, flexibility and range of movement.
- Indian Head Massage
Working on the back, neck, shoulders, arms, scalp and face; helping to relieve tension, stiffness, headaches, eyestrain; improving circulation and promoting a feeling of wellbeing. The use of oil is optional and it may be carried out fully clothed.
Nerve endings terminating on the feet have a reflex relationship with every organ, tissue and structure in the body. Applied pressure to specific reflex points brings about a homeostatic, balancing, effect. Helpful for stress, tension, anxiety, migraine, digestive issues and fertility issues.
- Hot Stones (*£30)
Hot Stone massage combines massage with the use of smooth, heated, basalt stones. It provides a deep therapeutic treatment, which is effective in promoting relaxation. This is beneficial for arthritic conditions, tensions or pain, in addition to balancing the nervous system.
- Hopi Ear Candles (*£30)
Hopi Ear Candles create a light suction action (called the chimney effect) which generates a massage effect on the ear canal and drum. It gives a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. This may help ease tinnitus, Meniere’s disease, sinus congestion and tension headaches.
- Ayurvedic Massage
(*Booked directly with therapist, call us for details)
Ayurvedic massage is a holistic health practice that focuses on creating peace and harmony in the body by aligning different energy channels called ‘chakras.’ Your current lifestyle and mood will be discussed to tailor this treatment specifically to you and any physical problem areas will be accounted for. An ayurvedic massage is a process that will address the body and soul physically, emotionally and spiritually and is ideal for those with chronic pain, high stress levels, poor circulation or insomnia. Essential oils are also used during this type of massage.
To get the most out of your treatment you are advised to:
- Avoid stimulants such as tea, coffee and alcohol for the next 24 hours. These can dehydrate you.
- Have as much rest and relaxation as possible so your body has the maximum benefit.
- Drink plenty of water to help the body flush out toxins.
- Following an Aromatherapy treatment, avoid hot baths, saunas, steam rooms and sun beds.
- Shampoo hair before adding water.
After your treatment, you may experience mild flu-like symptoms. This is not unusual and is your body’s natural way of releasing toxins. These symptoms can last around 24-48 hours.
We advise you to have regular treatments to ensure that the feeling of wellbeing is maintained.
