Alternative Therapies

Not sure where to start with your health?

My journey into wellbeing started with a frozen shoulder and a friend suggested that I really needed to do yoga as I appeared to be an emotional wreck. That’s not how they said it, but that’s what I read from it now as I write this.

 

On my journey, which is 10 years on from the point above, I have researched and investigated many different wellbeing modalities as I devour each modality for my own health.

I love learning and as I have worked on myself and found benefits, I have then looked into each modality that has provided benefits and then trained to use it in my business.

 

So, in this section you will find information on the modalities that are alternative.

 

The modalities in here don’t necessarily come under one heading but are services that I offer. These can be done on their own or as part of a wellbeing session where they are combined with other services.

Meditation

Meditation is a practice where you focus your mind on a particular object, thought, or activity to achieve mental clarity and emotional calm. By sitting quietly and meditating, you can reduce stress, improve concentration, and enhance self-awareness.

 

Regular meditation helps in managing anxiety, promoting emotional health, and increasing patience and tolerance. It’s a simple yet powerful tool for achieving a balanced state of mind and overall well-being.

 

Whether you're looking to relax, enhance your mindfulness, or your sleep, meditation offers numerous benefits that can improve your quality of life.

I hold regular group meditations and 1-2-1's, you can also combine with with one of my other services. Please contact me for more information.
