Complementary Therapy

Due to current restrictions we are not able to offer our Complementary Therapy Services.  We will resume provision as soon as we can.  In the meantime please call our Day Services team on 01453 886868 or email day.services@longfield.org.uk to let us know you are interested and to find out how else we can support you in the meantime.

Complementary therapies can be provided as an outpatient or as part of Day Therapy and we offer massage, Reiki and reflexology, designed to meet a patient’s individual needs.

Massage– this involves the application of gentle physical touch, which works to soothe and relieve muscular and nervous tension and can help to reduce anxiety.

Reflexology– this involves the application of gentle pressure to particular points on the feet or hands, known as reflexes, which corresponds to different parts of the body. Through this, the reflexologist aims to bring natural balance to the body and to promote deep relaxation.

Reiki– meaning “universal lifeforce” is a safe, gentle and revitalising healing art, originating in Japan. It is a relaxing therapy which enhances the body’s natural ability to balance itself. During treatment you may experience feelings of warmth, coolness, gentle tingling or deep muscular relaxation.

Aromatherapy– this uses plant-derived essential oils which have particular qualities, so for instance some may be uplifting and others may be calming. They can be used on their own or with the other therapies, to enhance their impact.
