What is holistic therapy?

Holistic therapies have been effectively used for centuries and can play an important role in maintaining good health and overall well-being. Holistic therapy is a completely natural and non-invasive treatment, suitable for all ages. 


Depending on which holistic treatment you choose, therapy can help you to relax, alleviate stress as well as ease a wide range of physical or emotional symptoms.


Treatment for the body, mind, spirit and emotions, holistic therapy simply refers to treating the whole person rather than individual symptoms.

The holistic approach to health aims to balance the body and mind to bring about homeostasis (natural state of balance). This is achieved by stimulating the body's natural healing ability, which contributes to optimum health and well-being.

Holistic therapy is used for a variety of reasons. Some people want to find more balance and harmony within themselves. Treatments can help to restore the body's natural balance, leading to a more sustained and rewarding quality of life.

Holistic therapies are also used to manage chronic stress. Studies show that 'taking time out' for holistic therapy treatment can help individuals to manage stress and aid relaxation.

Some people use it alongside conventional medical care to help them manage or cope with a specific physical, mental, or emotional problem. 


Holistic therapy is effective in addressing several physical and psychological concerns, from muscular aches and pains to hormonal imbalances, to improved sleep and mental clarity. As well as being deeply relaxing and providing relief from everyday stresses, holistic therapy treatments can also be a treat for individuals who enjoy pampering themselves. Others use it simply to maintain good health and promote well-being.

Holistic Therapy does not claim to cure, diagnose, or prescribe. The treatments I offer should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult your GP or a health professional for advice and confirmation that you may receive holistic treatments if you have a diagnosed medical condition. Particularly heart and/or blood conditions, and conditions that require medication and/or pain relief medication. This is because in some cases, massage may aggravate certain conditions. If you have any concerns or queries regarding this, please contact me, I will be happy to help.

I visited Lucy's studio this afternoon for a deluxe facial. The environment is so calm and relaxing. Lucy made me feel entirely at ease. She immediately sensed my tension as I had arrived straight from work.

She talked me through all of the products she was using, which smelt divine and the steps she was taking during the process.

I could feel the tightness in my shoulders ease away as the facial began and my body began to relax.


My skin feels so fresh and smells incredible. I will definitely be back for another in a few weeks and am about to book a hot stone massage after hearing of its benefits.


Thank you Lucy. I will be back very soon! x

Very welcoming and professional on entering. Beautifully designed room giving an instant sense of calm and warmth. Lucy advised me of which treatment she believed would be best suited for my particular complaint and explained the reasoning behind it perfectly. The treatment itself was spot on. Great level of firmness and thorough around all the areas that were most knotted and full of tension. The hot stone massage to finish was something new to me but one I would highly recommend. All in all a great experience and would definitely go again.

I had a full body massage by Lucy. She was very welcoming and made me feel at ease as I had never had a massage before. The room was decorated so nicely and added to the relaxing atmosphere. She adapted the massage for me due to me breastfeeding and being unable to lie on my front. I felt so relaxed throughout and the massage was amazing. Will 100% be going back. I felt so relaxed afterwards I fell asleep by 7.30pm.
