Try out therapies for FREE at open days this weekend

IF you have ever wondered if complementary therapies could help you, now is your chance to find out.

Peacefield Therapies, based in Tealby, is holding a two-day open event and there is even the chance to have a mini treatment session for free.

The centre at 3 Rase Road offers three therapies – The Bowen Technique, Reiki and Indian Head Massage.

The Bowen Technique is a non-invasive gentle manipulation therapy, which can be performed directly on the skin or over light clothing.

Registered Bowen practitioners Anne and Bruce Borland have been seeing positive results for more than ten years.

“The aim of the technique is to reawaken in the body its own healing process,” said Bruce,

As with all complementary therapies, Bowen addresses the whole body and not just the area of pain.

The technique can be used for a range of conditions – whiplash, chronic headaches, sciatica and many other problems.

Tension, stress and all sorts of pain can also be relieved with Reiki and Indian Head Massage.

Qualified practitioner Bess Scott-Gunn offers both these therapies at the centre.

Developed in Japan in the early 20th century, Reiki is non-tactile, being a hands-over rather than a hands-on therapy, which reinvigorates the flow of the body’s energy field to encourage healing.

Indian Head Massage works on the head and shoulder area and can be performed with skin contact or over a tee-shirt.

Conditions such as tinnitus, sinusitis and migraine have shown positive benefits from this treatment.

The open house event takes place this coming Sunday and Monday, April 22 and 23.

Pop in between 10am and 4pm on either day to find out more about the therapies on offer.

If you would like to take advantage of the free 15-minute mini-treatment offer, these must be booked beforehand on 01673 838294.
