• Neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's)
• Neuromusculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis)
• Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)

Acupuncture
What is acupuncture and how does it work?
Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of yin and yan of the life force known as Qi (pronounced chi). Qi is said to flow through meridians (pathways) in the human body. Through 350 acupuncture points in the body, these meridians and energy flows may be accessed. Illness is said to be the consequence of an imbalance of the forces. If needles are inserted into these points with appropriate combinations it is said that the energy flow can be brought back into proper balance.

In Western societies and several other parts of the world, acupuncture is explained including concepts of neuroscience. Acupuncture points are seen by Western practitioners as places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. Acupuncture practitioners say that the stimulation increases blood flow while at the same time triggering the activity of our own body's natural painkillers.

Massage
What is Massage?
Massage is a very enjoyable and relaxing hands-on treatment, which not only helps the body to heal itself, but also lifts the spirit. in touch THERAPIES use massage for systematic and manual manipulation of the body's soft tissue for therapeutic purposes promoting health and well-being.
What are the Benefits of Massage?
Massage is well indicated for stress related conditions as it promotes deep relaxation and helps fatigue. The stiffness and discomfort of postural tension is eased by stretching and warming the muscles as well as deeper work to remove fibrous knots and congestion. Increased circulation of oxygenated blood to the muscles promotes healing and the drainage of toxins helps strengthen the immune system. The deeper tissue work is particularly good for those who regularly participate in sporting activities.
The benefits of massage vary depending on the particular circumstances of the person being treated. The most common benefits are:
• Muscle healing
The movement of the massage promote blood flow into the muscle tissue which introduces increased levels of oxygen and removes toxins, thus aiding the healing process.
• Stress relief
Tired or overworked muscles in the neck and shoulders can lead to fibrosis in the muscles as the fibres become knotted - this can lead to headaches, back pain, tingling joints and a feeling of general lethargy. A massage is the most effective and enjoyable way to relieve these symptoms.

Hot Stones Massage
Hot Stones Massage involves the use of heated black volcanic rocks of varying sizes to apply pressure to the body. It is quite an experience; the stones retain their heat throughout and can be used to give you both light and deep tissue massage, whilst the heat directly relaxes the muscles. This creates a double effect which is both soothing and therapeutic.
The heated stones expand the blood vessels, which helps your body eliminate unwanted waste materials, whilst giving you a sedative effect.
When you experience a hot stones massage, you may notice improvement with the following symptoms:
• Muscular aches and pains
• Poor circulation
• Rheumatic and arthritic conditions
• Fibromyalgia
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Back pain
• Stress, anxiety and tension
• Insomnia
• Depression

Reflexology
Whilst reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India & China, it was not until 1913 that it was introduced to the West by Dr William Fitzgerald. He noticed that there was a connection between reflex areas on the hands and feet & other organs and systems of the body. In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed this theory into what we now know as reflexology by observing that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. The entire body is mapped out on the feet (or hands) and is worked through systematically by the reflexologist during a treatment. Reflexology is a complementary therapy which works on the feet to help heal the whole person (mind, body & spirit) including emotional well-being and not just the prevailing symptoms.
How can reflexology help me?
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural healthy balance, resulting in good health & well-being. It may help to release congestion & stress/tension from the various systems of the body thereby helping to alleviate dis-ease in the body, mind & spirit.
Who can benefit from reflexology?
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and for every stage of your life from trying to conceive, giving birth, babies & children, adults with health problems, elderly & those in palliative care. This gentle, natural therapy is a relaxing & enjoyable experience and many people use reflexology as a way of reducing stress & relaxing the mind & body as well as helping many common ailments they suffer from.
What happens at a treatment session?
At in touch THERAPIES when you arrive for your first reflexology session you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire. This helps to give the practitioner an understanding of your health issues and any specific needs. You will be asked to remove your footwear and lie on a couch. Gentle pressure will be applied to the various reflex points of both feet (or hands if appropriate). The session normally lasts an hour (90 mins for the initial consultation). Sometimes after receiving reflexology you may experience a slight healing reaction such as sinuses clearing, a runny nose, runny eyes or a more frequent need to pass water. This is a result of the body eliminating toxins & any reaction felt should not last long. It is advisable to drink water after a treatment to help flush out any toxins. After treatment you normally feel very relaxed, possibly sleepy & sometimes energized.
