Complementary Therapies at Wandsworth Carers’ Centre

Complimentary Therapies can reduce stress and give Carers a chance to take some time out to focus on their own needs.  We offer a range of therapies to Carers, depending on volunteer availability.  Therapies are available at our office in Balham and Wandsworth High Street.  All our volunteer therapists are either trained or in training, and they are fully supported and insured.

 

Reflexology with Foot Massage: Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body – held on Monday morning at the Wandsworth Office.

 

Body Massage: Body massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure.  Techniques are commonly applied using the hands, arms and elbows.  We offer body massage at both offices – Wednesday morning and Wednesday afternoon at the Wandsworth Office and Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning, Thursday afternoon and Friday morning at the Balham Office.

 

Call to put your name on the waiting list and you will be offered a set of appointments, three for all the therapies for a £10 non-refundable deposit.  Or you can be booked in for a one-off appointment for a £3 non-refundable deposit.
