Tender Touch Therapy is a combination of Reflexology, Stress Management and communication skills designed for the more sensitive patient. Treatments are very tender and are of a shorter duration.
Touch has been proven to have a powerful impact on our emotional well being and Tender Touch Therapies have been specifically designed to help relax, support and comfort the anxious, distressed or lonely person.
The importance of touch is well documented and gentle stroking can flood us with oxytocin and feel-good endorphins. In this relaxed state, the body-mind is able to regroup and recharge.
Reflexology is an ancient therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the hands and feet correspond with different areas of the body. Touching these points creates balance in the corresponding body parts stimulating self-healing. It is one of the top three complementary therapies used within hospitals and hospices and has been shown to significantly reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure and heart rate and may increase immune function.
