Having a neurological condition can make you feel stressed, tense and just not really ‘yourself’. Here at The Brain Charity we think that being able to relax and feel better about yourself is a really important part of living with any condition.
This is why we are very pleased to be able to offer safe, natural treatments of holistic therapies to suit your individual needs. We believe that holistic therapies help to relieve the stress and strain on our mind, body and soul.
Holistic medicine looks at individual’s over-all physical, mental, and spiritual emotional well-being.
Medical treatment may also be complemented with natural therapies to boost the effects of the treatment plan, as well as to minimise or neutralise unpleasant side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Massage Therapy - 45 minutes
Massage when applied to an individual suffering chronic pain can be extremely beneficial as a significant reduction in pain can be felt immediately. Tightness within muscles are common in neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy and epilepsy. A reduction in muscular tightness can also reduce pain, improve flexibility and range of movement.
Reflexology - 45 minutes
Reflexology is an ancient Chinese technique that uses pressure-point massage on your feet to restore the flow of energy throughout the entire body. This is to help sustain harmony and create a feeling of well-being and optimum health.
Other benefits include: lower blood pressure; improved sleep; improved blood circulation; reduced stress.

You may want to try Reiki. This therapy gives your body the energy to naturally heal itself. It is an ancient practice of transmitting energy through the hands, based on simple techniques. Excellent for emotional well-being. Crystals are used in combination to help rebalance your energy pathways.
This is to boost your emotional health and well-being, Reiki calms down any anxiety. This is a deeply relaxing treatment.
