What does a Complementary Therapy session comprise of?
Each person is unique so each session will differ according to the specific needs of the client. Prior to a session it is important to prepare the environment to make it as relaxing and reassuring as possible. This can involve the use of atmospheric music and aromatic oils. During your session Tina promises that you will have 100% of her attention. Further information can be found about specific treatments.
The First Session
On the first visit, Tina, a qualified holistic practitioner, will ask you to fill in a brief medical form, followed by a chat through your past and present health and lifestyle, focusing upon what treatments are applicable to your symptoms.
Tina will recommend from the range of treatments that she offers and will discuss this with you, and then treatment can commence.
A typical session takes between 45 – 60 minutes where the clients normally relaxes on a couch and a routine is followed.
After the Session: Aftercare
It is recommended that you rest as much as possible after the treatment in order enhance positive effects, and drink enough water over the next 24 hours to aid the detoxifying process.
You may experience one or more of the following:
- Feeling cold
- Mild headache
- Mild tiredness
- Needing to go to the loo more frequently
All of the above are an indication that toxins are being eliminated from the body. These symptoms should disappear after 24-48 hours.
After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory and is a part of the healing process. Information on such after-effects is vital to feed back to Tina, as it demonstrates how your body is responding to treatment. This will help the therapist to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.
As a result of the session the main aim is to relax the body and to start the process of re-tuning the body back into it’s natural balance. This on average takes 3-6 sessions and typically it is a good idea to have as many as possible on a weekly basis, with follow-ups on maintenance work every 3-4 weeks. Advice is also given to all clients on aftercare.
As we are not medically trained if there are any particular problems areas which should be brought to the client’s attention then it will be recommended that they consult their GP.
