Complementary 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 offices in Balham and Wandsworth High Street. All our volunteer therapists are either trained or in training, and they are fully supported and insured.
Are you aware of the range of therapies we have at Wandsworth Carers’ Centre? Everyone loves body massage, but did you know if you put your name down for another therapy, the waiting lists are much shorter?
Reflexology: 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 – Monday morning, Wandsworth Office.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventive purposes – Thursday morning, Wandsworth Office and Thursday afternoon, Balham Office.
Reiki: Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by ‘laying on hands’ and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy – Friday afternoon, Balham office.
Tui Na: Tui Na is the most tried and tested massage therapy in the world. It is an Ancient healing art that employs the use of the hands to press on key points on the surface of the body. When these points are stimulated they release tension increase circulation and improve the body’s own natural healing process – Wednesday morning, Balham Office.
