Relaxation for Chronic Conditions
for when your body is working extremely hard to support itself physically and emotionally
I am trained and insured to be able to offer relaxation sessions to clients who are about to embark on, are undergoing or have finished their treatment for cancer. And often, clients who suffer from conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and arthritis find my tailor-made treatments alleviate some of their symptoms.
To ensure that I have a good understanding of your condition and the type of therapy you would like, I will send you a consultation form to complete before your appointment. This will allow me to begin formatting a relaxation plan for you and will also allow you to gain permission from your medical team (if needed) before your session.
On the day of your appointment we will check over your form and make sure that the session is tailored exactly to your needs - taking into account any areas of the body you do not want to be touched or that cannot be touched due treatment or medical devices; how you would like to be positioned on the treatment couch (lots of pillows on standby to bolster and support you) and how long you would like the treatment to be - sometimes less is more.
The treatments, whether they are massage or reflexology are always kept light; your body is working extremely hard to support itself and needs to be able to rest and restore.
Depending on your specific needs I can use a variety of techniques. It may be that you simply want a very relaxing massage, would like to try Reflexology for Lymphatic Drainage (RLD), which works specifically on the lymphatic system and can help with oedema (swelling) in the body or you might like to experience an incredibly calming cranial-sacral session,
These sessions are for you and are dedicated to your total relaxation and comfort.
If you would like to talk to me in confidence about your medical condition and what treatments I can offer please give me a call so we can discuss how we can tailor make a treatment for you.
The cost of each session is as follows:
30 mins - £45.00
45 mins - £50.00
60 mins - £55.00
Please allow 10 minutes longer than your 'hands on' time for each session.
