Holistic Therapies

We are pleased to offer a range of natural therapies which support your well being health and happiness. Our qualified practitioner Martina specialises in treatment massage, healing and herbal therapies.

The Holistic approach centres on balancing the whole body, emotions, mind and spirit by addressing the underlying issues affecting the bodies systems as well as the symptoms obviously presenting. For this reason you may be required to help the therapist build a background picture by consultation before your therapy commences. Feedback during your therapy programme is also essential to adjust your therapy accordingly.

The Holistic approach believes that the body tries to send messages [symptoms] when it is out of balance [on any level] , over a period of time before the manifestation of ill health. If you can learn to read these messages you can consciously adapt and change to remain in harmony; because of our busy lifestyles we often ignore our body’sprotestations!
However we are lucky that our body is always ready to achieve balance where ever possible, with a little care, kindness, thought and administration.

Unfortunately in our busy modern world it is often our very selves who are last on the list for care. We can learn a lot from nature such as how it naturally unconsciously adapts and changes where ever possible to maintain homeostasis.

At the lotus room we embrace the flow of the natural environment and its rustic charms of earthiness which can be very grounding. Stepping away from the rush of every day life and back to the simpler rhythms of the natural world can have the effect of slowing down time and just being. By taking some time out to listen to yourself, switch off, relax and be still, you can give your whole self the precious time it deserves to adjust and be the best that it can be.

We look forward to meeting you.
