Skin Complaints

Massage Therapy is effective in reducing stress levels is all important in skin conditions.

We do not advise massaging over skin lesions, rashes etc., but certainly other areas can be massaged to obtain the relaxation effects.

Clinical Aromatherapy is very useful in skin pathologies

Reflexology can produce dramatic results in psoriasis and dermatitis as the affected areas can be worked through the feet.

Eczema:

Common itchy skin disease characterised by reddening and vesicle formation, which may lead to weeping and crusting. It is endogenous i.e. outside agents do not play a primary role. Found all over the body, but most often on the inside of the knee and elbow joints, and on the face, hands and scalp.

This can affect all ages and in children is particularly upsetting. Regular Reflexology and dietary changes are the most effective.

Psoriasis:

Chronic skin disease, with no known cause, in which scaly pink patches, covered in silvery scales (that are   constantly shed) form on the elbows, knees, scalp and in severe cases all over the body. Sizes of scales vary from minute spots to quite large sheets of skin. Not infectious.

Regular Reflexology and dietary changes are the most effective
