Welcome to our Holistic Wellness Hub
means based on the principle of holism. “The whole is greater than the sum
of its parts”. Holism is an important concept in the sciences and social
sciences, and especially in medicine. Holistic medicine tries to treat the
“whole person” rather than focusing too narrowly on single symptoms.
It emphasizes the connections between the mind and the body, avoids the overuse
of drugs, and has borrowed such practices from Eastern traditions as
acupuncture and yoga.
Holistic health of a person concentrates on the connection of body, mind and spirit functioning at their highest levels to attain complete wellbeing in the environment in which they interact. To achieve holistic wellbeing and feel your best a person must have a complete approach that meets the needs and wants in each area, that are the most enjoyable and meaningful to you (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). Most people pay attention to at least one or two areas of their holistic health, for example they would exercise regularly and eat well but this is only one aspect of holistic health and wellbeing (body) and therefore they will need to make changes in their lifestyle to make room for and look after the other areas as well. The results to a person’s wellbeing after creating a balanced state of holistic health to their lifestyle is a healthier, complete, fulfilled and happier self (Schaerer,2015).
Our holistic wellness hub offers natural therapies, such as art and dance therapies, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Shiatsu massage and alternative medicines including homeopathic remedies, and other energy healing modalities.
Our practitioners and therapists are passionate and
dedicated to their profession and the clients they serve.

Nicky Hartley – Shiatsu Therapist
Shiatsu is a hands-on Japanese Zen Healing Art.
Shiatsu is more than a massage technique!
The character “shi” means finger or toe. The character “atsu” translates as “slowly applied pressure maintained then slowly released” with the implication of the use of bodyweight rather than strength. Together the two characters symbolize a range of techniques used in a therapeutic way, delivered by bodyweight using either fingers, palms, elbows, knees or feet.
Shiatsu achieves unique results because of it’s holistic goals which attempt to treat the whole person rather than a specific medical complaint. Shiatsu is based on the time-honoured Oriental medical understanding that our physiological and psychological structures are supported and affected by meridians. Meridians are channels of living magnetic energy. A shiatsu practitioner can improve the Ki (chi, life-force, energy) flowing through the meridians to improve our general health and well-being.
