Although Alternative therapies are relatively new to Western Culture they have been accepted, developed and in use for thousands of years in many other cultures.
The term alternative therapy refers to a form of therapy that does not fall within the realm of 'conventional therapy' as practiced by most doctors and is therefore, as the name suggests, a form of therapy that 'compliments' conventional treatments. It is variously known as Complementary Therapy, Alternative Therapy, or Holistic Therapy.

Reflexology 45 minutes - £50
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific points, known as reflexes, on the feet and hands to encourage the body to heal from within. The therapy is based on the principle that the feet and hands contain 'mini-maps' of the whole body and that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body.
