Community workshops.

Visited Lea Road Community Church again yesterday in Wolverhampton and  supported their Roma group with a massage workshop.  

Initially everyone received a 10 minute treatment and we then led them in a  structured massage session with the aim ofbthem beibg able to provide each other with basic massage.

Brilliant afternoon was had by us and the Roma group.  We had lots of laughing,  interaction and everyone fedback how relaxed they felt and we’re ready to go it alone.

Not just the adults got involved too.   We had the dad’s and even the children ready to give it a go. Everyone got involved..

If you run a community group and would be interested in us visiting you to conduct a similar session, please contact us –  we would love to hear from you.

These workshops are great way of integrating a community and any language barrier which may have been there wasn’t obvious as we all watched and followed each other.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage come to Hands 4 Wellbeing

Reflexology Lymph DrainageReflexology Lymph Drainage comes to Hands 4 Wellbeing.

This award winning reflexology technique  focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care. The results appear to support the theory of reflexology. 

More information on this new technique can be found at

Lymphatic Drainage massage (MLD) is used to treat conditions other than Lymphoedema and RLD (Reflex Lymph Drainage) may be used similarly. MLD may be useful with the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines / Headaches / Sinus Problems
  • ME / Chronic Fatigue
  • Muscular Tension / Aches and Pains
  • Premenstrual Syndrome

Results are visible after your first treatment but research has shown a minimum of 3/4 sessions are suggested so that results last longer and that treatments are then recommended on a regular basis that suits your body.

This technique it amazing. We can offer appointments at our regular clinic at Blurton Hub in Blurton, West End Village in Stoke or  private appointment. Booking appointments is essential, please call us to arrange or if you require any further information.
