Using a combination of aromatherapy, lava stones, massage and reiki. Proven to improve circulation and help with pain relief, regular massage will improve and uplift mood and work on decreasing anxiety, stress and depression. The power of touch can be so simple and yet so powerful. I ensure my work is very much person centred, finding out the type of music that they enjoy as well as special interests they may have had, so that I can speak to each client about topics that are meaningful to them. I collect information from the clients, their families and staff in order to stimulate them mentally and access positive memories that bring joy and comfort.
This person -centred approach provides a safe time and space and is a highlight of patient’s lives, supporting their happiness, well-being, self-respect and dignity.
Patients who are unable to communicate in conventional ways are still able to direct my hand to painful areas themselves. Non verbal clues are key - facial expression, movement and breathing all provide feedback about how the client feels about and the benefit from touch.
