Reflexology With Derek
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands). Reflexology is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress.
The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.
Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Reflexology is sometimes combined with other hands-on therapies and may be offered by chiropractors and physical therapists, among others.
Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Given that reflexology is also low risk, it can be a reasonable option if you’re seeking relaxation and stress relief.

Chinese medicine is a holistic approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease (or illness).
The aim of a Chinese medicine practitioner is to improve symptoms, but most importantly, to treat the root cause of disease.
This approach not only prevents the recurrence of the condition, but also aids in the rebalancing of the body overall, and promotes a stronger functioning so that the body is in a condition where disease is less likely.

Clinical Hypnotherapy With Alison
Alison was a former orthopedic nurse in the NHS but now concentrates on her own private practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapy is a combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis. The Psychotherapy in itself is extremely beneficial and its effects are enhanced by the application of Hypnosis, which enables the subconscious mind to make beneficial changes. The type of Psychotherapy I practise does not involve delving into painful memories from the past. If you have experienced unpleasant past events, these are acknowledged but not analysed. Instead, I work with you to help you move forward to where you would like to be.
