"I had suffered with neck, shoulder and nerve pain in my arm for several months. Michele not only resolved the problem but helped me to identify the triggers. Together we found away for me to continue with my sport and music that prevents the injury recurring."Tom, Braunton, June 2013
"I have suffered from chronic headaches for as long as I can remember, with headaches lasting 2 to 3 days particularly as part of PMS. I was amazed that after just one reflexology treatment with Michele I was headache free for the whole week even though I would normally have suffered during PMS!"Julia, Braunton, Dec 2011
"I was surprised and extremely pleased to feel an improvement after the very first session with Michele. I look forward to treatments knowing the benefits it can give me."Wendy, Braunton, Nov 2011
"I'd tried several different treatments and therapists over the past 10 years. I had been on patches for several years just to cope with the pain in my neck, lower back and arm. I'd given up hope of ever finding relief. Michele restored my faith and I am now pain free something I didn’t think could happen."David S, Braunton, October 2013
"Having suffered on and off with acute and chronic back and neck pain for many years and received various treatments for extensive periods before, it was great to feel improvement after only the first couple of times. Michele didn’t just focus on the session itself but helped me to think through my daily routines identifying triggers."Tony, Braunton, Dec 2011
"I have a stressful and full on job and use sport to relax. Due to a repetitive injury I was in severe pain, unable to sleep. After just one session with Michele I was pain free. Can’t recommend Therapeutic Treatments enough!"Carol, Barnstaple, December 2013
"I hadn’t been able to live an active life for a while due a sporting injury. I had tried a couple of other treatments elsewhere before but had found only a little relief. After only 3 massage sessions I started to resume my interests. I go back now once a month and love my treatments."Ann, Barnstaple, June 2013
Massage is not new. Chinese literature from 3000 BC shows massage was considered as one of the key elements for complete health. Hindu writings 1800BC state that massage was used for weight reduction, sleep aid, relaxation and fatigue relief. Massage works directly on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to apply pressure to key points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative ability. When pressure is applied to these points they release muscular tension, promote the circulation of blood and enhance the body’s life force to aid healing.
Aromatic extracts have been used as far back as the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Roman Empire. In the 15th century, Paracelcus, an alchemist and medical doctor focused his studies upon using plants as medicines. The development of essential oils continued gradually. Read more
Reflexology is an ancient healing art that dates back to over a thousand years. It has been embraced into many cultures. In India it became a main stream medical therapy and in Germany the study of reflexology is said to be comparable to a medical physician.
