What are mind-body therapies?

Mind-body therapies seek to treat the whole person, including their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. These therapies work by addressing the root cause of an individual’s health issues rather than just treating the symptoms, and are based upon a holistic model of mind-body unity, rather than the dualistic approach of health which is used in mainstream healthcare.

The focus of this group of therapies is on creating balance within the mental, emotional, energetic, and physical aspects of health.  This can be achieved by using a range of techniques such as acupuncture, massage therapy, meditation, aromatherapy or reflexology. Holistic therapies aim to support the natural self-healing processes of the body, in addition to encouraging individuals to make positive lifestyle changes, and to take a greater level of self-control over their own wellbeing and experience of life.

Important notes about therapist approaches

There is a lot of confusion about what holistic therapies are, and how they are used. So, just to clarify, there are two broad types of approach within holistic therapies.  It's important to recognise the difference between these, so that you go to a therapist who is right for you.

The first approach within holistic therapies are spa-type treatments.  These are best for people who want to experience relaxation now and again, and who may be more orientated towards gentle self-care treatments. Therapists in this group also often provide beauty treatments, facials, skin care, relaxation, and pampering-type sessions.

The second type of service is provided by therapists who have a health-orientated approach.  They have qualifications in remedial and therapeutic modalities, and focus on issues such as pain relief, symptom management, and improving health and wellbeing. Therapists in this group are more likely to use deeper, therapeutic work, and to see clients regularly in order to get long-term health results.

What Can Holistic Therapies Help You With?

Online holistic health coaching

I provide online coaching sessions for holistic health and learning how to use therapies at home.

These sessions help you to integrate simple holistic health therapies into your daily life. You can learn how to use practices like aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure, nutrition, or mindfulness. Or you can get specific guidance about which tools, resources, or products will be most beneficial for your individual self-care and symptom relief programme.

Here are a few things we can include in your online sessions:
* Your own bespoke aromatherapy programme for emotional health
* Learn how to use mindfulness for stress relief and wellbeing
* Acupressure points for stress, anxiety, and emotional overwhelm
* Simple practices for reducing chronic pain conditions

 Holistic Therapies for Women in Cornwall

I also offer a limited number of in-person therapies for women from my home-based studio, which is near to St Austell, in Cornwall.

I believe that it is important to remember that individual types of therapy are simply tools and techniques. The real skill as an experienced holistic therapist lies in being able to recognise the areas of tension and energetic imbalance within the body, and use whichever technique is most appropriate for that person and situation.

With this in mind, it's usually better to combine multiple therapies together, which is how I work. Combining therapies is more effective for releasing the physical effects of stress, especially if used in conjunction with coaching which also explores underlying thought patterns which may be creating pain or tension in the body. After all, physical symptoms are generally a manifestation of underlying beliefs, habits, and emotional habits.  It's important to address these underlying issues too, otherwise you are simply solving the problem on a superficial level.

Please note that I work from my home studio, near to St Austell, and in-person holistic therapy sessions are available for women only. 

Holistic Therapies

 1-1 online coaching or in-person therapies

Remedial Massage

A therapeutic massage that is designed to address specific issues or injuries in the body. It involves using various techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, sports massage therapy and myofascial release to target problem areas and promote healing. Can help to reduce pain and inflammation, improve range of motion, and enhance overall well-being. Effective for the relief of muscular pain, headaches, and stress-related health problems.


Acupressure is a traditional Chinese therapy that involves applying pressure to specific points on the body to stimulate healing and restore balance. It is based on the same principles as acupuncture but does not involve the use of needles. By applying finger pressure to these points, acupressure can help reduce pain, improve circulation, relieve tension, and boost overall well-being. With its non-invasive approach, it is an effective therapy which complements massage.


Reflexology involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet, hands, and ears that correspond with different parts of the body. It is based on the theory that these reflex points can stimulate energy flow and promote healing throughout the body. Reflexology is effective in reducing stress and anxiety, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation and sleep. It can also be helpful in restoring overall wellbeing by restoring energetic balance throughout the body.

Aromatherapy uses essential oils to promote physical and emotional well-being. It involves applying oils to the skin, which can stimulate the limbic system in the brain and have a calming effect on the emotions and body. Aromatherapy is particularly beneficial for managing emotional regulation and stress reduction. Essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus can also help reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, and boost immune function.

Fibromyalgia Therapies

Specialist massage therapy for chronic fatigue conditions and fibromyalgia by an accredited practitioner in chronic fatigue conditions. A combination of deep tissue massage, acupressure, and holistic techniques alleviates pain and muscular tension.  Highly effective for releasing myofascial pain and promoting healthy tissue function when used regularly. Ideally used as part of a comprehensive therapeutic plan for fibromyalgia and exhaustive conditions.

Thermo Auricular Therapy

Thermo auricular therapy, also known as ear candling, is a technique which involves placing a hollow aromatherapy candle into the ear canal and lighting it. The heat and suction produced by the burning candle stimulates energetic flow, whilst the burning oils promote relaxation. Please note that this therapy is not used for ear wax removal. It is combined with face and neck massage with acupressure to relieve sinus congestion and to reduce tension headaches.

Hot Stone Therapy

Hot stone therapy is a gentle massage technique which involves the use of heated basalt stones to release muscular tension. The heat from the stones helps to increase circulation, allowing for deeper muscle relaxation, and stress reduction. Stones and crystals can also be placed on the chakra centres of the body for use as an energy-based therapy. Hot stone therapy can be used to alleviate chronic pain, and works best when combined with remedial massage.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage is a relaxing therapy that focuses on the scalp, neck, and upper body. It involves massage and pressure point work in the head, neck, and facial areas to release tension, improve circulation, reduce stress, and promote relaxation. Indian Head Massage has been found to be beneficial for relief from headaches, migraines, sinusitis, insomnia, and anxiety. It can be used as a relaxing seated therapy, or part of a regular massage if you want more therapeutic results.


Reiki is a form of energy healing and spiritual therapy. It focuses on releasing blocked energies within the body, which can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances. Reiki is effective in reducing stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and sleep, boosting the immune system, and restoring a sense of wellbeing. It is a gentle and non-invasive therapy. Combine with other therapies or coaching to address underlying issues, and get the best results.
