In 1986 I qualified as an Occupational Therapist and worked in a clinical setting for ten years with people who often had severe and debilitating symptoms of chronic disease. My interest in alternative and natural ways of supporting our health and wellbeing throughout our lives, was encouraged by this experience and for the last 17 years I have studied natural, holistic and complementary therapies.
I believe these therapies can reduce the effects of stress which we know to have a huge impact upon our health: it is thought that 75-90% of human disease is related to the activation of our stress response. Massage, Reflexology, Meditation and Reiki all promote the relaxation response – the physical and psychological state opposite to the fright, fight or flight stress response. The relaxation response enables the body and mind to regain balance; our restorative bodily systems to flourish and work effectively and coherently; and for our immune, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine and digestive systems to work harmoniously. Through this response we can enter a state of growth and creativity and feel the difference – calm, soothed and at ease. This experience can counteract the adverse clinical effects of stress.
Being aware of the stress in your life and being proactive in managing it, is important. To help you with this I can create a treatment session that is truly integrated and holistic and which combines a range of therapeutic approaches, all of which are deeply relaxing. You may be needing a massage to soothe tired aching muscles, meditation for mindfulness, or you may want to explore energy work – reflexology, reiki and crystal healing.
All sessions are provided in a log cabin, surrounded by trees, the river a stones throw away, a natural setting which is peaceful and tranquil.
Meology Therapies help you to take time out for yourself, find some stillness and respite from modern life and promote your health, wellbeing and resilience in these challenging times.
