Who are we
We are a group of therapists dedicated to helping
people back on the road to good health. The holistic approach to health takes into account the needs of the whole person: body, mind and emotions. Treatment encourages healing to take place on all these levels.
To create a relaxed, safe, peaceful and supportive space for patients thus encouraging healing to take place. We feel it is very important to empower health in our patients. As well as receiving appropriate treatment patients are given tools, which enable them to make the necessary lifestyle changes to prevent the problem reoccurring.
How do we do it?
This may be advice on posture, diet or exercise. The symptoms of ill health are often a message from our body/mind to slow down or look at some part of our life that is not serving us very well. Relaxation or visualisation techniques are sometimes given to promote a positive mental attitude towards health.

Reflexology & Reiki
Sue is the reflexologist and Reiki healer working from the Towngate Clinic. She qualified in reflexology with the British School of Reflexology in 1997, and is continuing on the reiki journey having taken the Master Attunements in 2005.
Reflexology and reiki combine well. Often clients have reflexology first, then healing as a follow-up to work at a subtle level within the energy field of the client.
