Osteopath & Nutritional Therapist
|Head Neck and Shoulder Therapy|
Intensive Head, Neck and Shoulder TherapyTension in the face, neck and shoulders is a major source of discomfort for many people. Even a regular massage may not be sufficient to undo the results of years of postural and mental stress. Here at the practice we have had many requests for a treatment which targets this troublesome area at a deeper level. As a result Margaret is introducing the Intensive Head Neck and Shoulder Therapy. Specially designed to be the ultimate prescription for tension, stress and pain, it is a whole hour of intense restorative treatment.
What is so special about this therapy?
Intensive Head Neck and Shoulder Therapy is a unique East/West fusion of traditional osteopathic techniques with shiatsu (acupressure) and Reiki. It combines a variety of synergistic approaches which produce deep levels of relaxation, both physical and mental. Most people find that after just a few sessions the 'muscle memory' automatically resets to a lower level of tension.
What might the treatment include?
Most sessions are likely to include a range of familiar osteopathic techniques - muscle kneading and stretching, joint articulation, traction and manipulation. Cupping and heated vibromassage can be particularly helpful when muscles are nodular and painful. Acupressure encourages energetic balance, and Reiki adds a whole new dimension of profound relaxation.
When, and for whom, might it be useful?
Virtually everyone suffers from neck and shoulder tension from time to time. For the more laid-back amongst us, it may be a problem only at times of particular stress - before exams, end of year accounts, family visits, weddings or moving house, for example. An occasional treatment at appropriate times may be all they need.
Are there any side-effects or contraindications?
There are very few. Please refer to Osteopathy section.
Clothing for treatment must ensure adequate access to the neck and shoulder area. Male patients should be undressed from the waist up. Ladies can wear a bra or vest with straps removed or tucked in. A covering of a blanket or towel will be provided at a suitable point in the session to avoid your becoming chilled.
£70.00 for 60 minutes.
