Teachers! We know how hard you work. And we know how important it is to invest in your wellbeing – to help you meet the challenges of the new academic year.
So, for all teachers, lecturers and education professionals, we are offering £10 off your first massage or acupuncture appointment during September and October. This offer is open to all staff involved in delivering and supporting education, so whether you work in a nursery, a school, a college or a university – you are welcome to come and see how we can help you. Acupuncture and Massage are great ways to help your body to stay well while you deal with the demands of your busy schedule.
Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy. Our Acupuncturist, Lynne Pretty uses acupuncture to help you to bring balance and harmony back into your life. She can also treat specific issues such as pain, stress and other forms of discomfort that interfere with your ability to do your job as you would like. Find out more at: www.lynneprettyacupuncture.co.uk and www.acupuncture.org.uk. During September and October you can book an Initial Appointment with Lynne for the price of £52 (instead of the usual £62).
One of the immediate benefits of Massage Therapy is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. If you have ever had a massage, you will know that it can really help you to switch off and relax – something that can be difficult to do when we are living such hectic lives. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, can also be reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system, so massage can be a good way to help you to avoid succumbing to the bugs and illnesses that can be passed around in a busy educational establishment.
Other benefits of massage can include:
- reduced muscle tension
- increased joint mobility and flexibility
- improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
- reduced anxiety and depression
During September and October, you can book a massage appointment with one of our therapists – Kirstie Guy or Racheal Duncan and take £10 off the usual price. We offer appointments of 30 minutes (usual price £24 – offer price £14), 45 minutes (usual price £34 – offer price £24) and 1 hour (usual price £45 – offer price £35) in duration.
