Treat yourself and feel amazing

If you are looking for a complementary therapy to help with your menopause, why not consider coming on one of our Courses & Events?

We can help you to make an informed choice when it comes to cosmetic treatments as well as other therapies.

For instance, what should you ask and how can you get the most out of the treatment?

When considering any complementary therapy, we would certainly advise you to check that, as a minimum, any therapist is properly registered with the appropriate professional body.

Questions to ask a Complementary Therapist or Beauty Therapist

  1. How long have you been in practice?
  2. Where did you study your therapy and what are your qualifications?
  3. How is your therapy registered and are you on the register? If you?re not registered, why are you not registered?
  4. Can your therapy help my condition and how will it help me?
  5. How long will it be before I see benefits from this therapy?
  6. Are there any side-effects to the therapy?
  7. How many visits do you envisage I will need?
  8. Should I tell my doctor that I?m using this therapy?
  9. Will this therapy interact with my prescribed medication?
  10. Are you insured?

How to get the most from a Complementary Therapy session

  1. Give the therapist a full list of supplements and remedies you are at present taking.
  2. After a complementary therapy session drink plenty of filtered still water and eat light easily digestible food.
  3. Have plenty of rest ? avoid vigorous exercise and busy, stressful situations.
  4. Don?t start different complementary therapists at the same time ? too much for your body to adjust to and won?t know what?s working ? give each therapy at least a month to work.
  5. Give your body at least three days rest between any body-work therapy, i.e. acupuncture, massage, shiatsu, reflexology.
  6. Keep a diary (or use your menopause chart) to make a note of any changes of symptoms (better or worse), any new symptoms, emotions and feelings in between sessions to inform therapist at next visit.
