Everybody needs a little piece of heaven in their everyday lives.
I found mine three years ago, when I first moved to Greenwich. I had been feeling poorly and was in need of a pick-me-up. I’ve always loved massage and relaxation therapies, but couldn’t justify paying spa prices for the indulgence. Years before, I had been treated to a reflexology session and had absolutley loved it.
I’m a very open-minded person; scientific backing or otherwise, if something makes me feel better I really am not one to worry what other people think!
So having looked at a few different options, I stumbled across a natural therapy centre five minutes walk from my house. I did a little bit of research, liked what I read, so booked my first session at Healthwise Natural Therapy Centre.
Firstly, I challenge anyone to not feel the ultimate sense of relaxation after having their feet rubbed (in a very specialised way, of course!) for an hour.
For me though, my sessions with Christine are so much more than that.
Right from the word go she took the time to get to know me; how I think and feel, that I’m the ultimate control freak, my fears and dreams and my every day life. Every time I see her she uses all of this acquired knowledge to give me the ultimate treatment.
Chris has so many strings to her bow, and uses everything she has learnt over the years to deliver a full and complete session which always leaves me feeling more complete, relaxed and ‘put together’.
Today was my first session back since my operation and I have to say it was truely the most heavenly way to spend my morning.
Greeted like an old friend and welcomed back with open arms and plentiful compliments, followed by an hour of the ultimate indulgence (reflexology) in a relaxing environment with incense, cosy sheets and dim lights and finished off with a hypnobirthing / meditation lesson. It’s hard to explain how I feel when I leave – but imagine walking on a fluffy cloud, with a clear head, easy breathing and feeling as though your whole body has been treated to a magical mending session.
I’m hoping to fit in a few more sessions before baby arrives and can’t wait for the next one already.
When you find something in your life that makes you happy, makes you feel healthy and complete and gives you an ultimate sense of wellbeing and togetherness; embrace it.
