I am currently working with local
care and nursing homes enabling them to enrich the lives of their residents
while also improving their well-being. I
specialise in treating people with life limiting, long term health conditions, disabilities
and dementia having adapted my Reflexology treatments to include nurturing
touch massage techniques, having trained with Nicolle
I have also trained with Angie Buxton-King completing the Healing in Hospitals and Hospices course http://www.cancertherapies.org.uk/ and offer my services to St Lukes Hospice in Plymouth.
A treatment can consist of:
hand massage with the massage being extended to include the arms up to the
touch massage to the face and neck areas
foot massage with the massage being extended up to the knees if required
Reiki Healing and Indian Head Massage
Affordability is important to me,
so I have set my costs accordingly:
can treat 3 people at £10 per person 20 minute sessions
Or I can treat 2
people at £15 per person 30 minute sessions
session at £30 per hour.
do require a minimum booking of 1 hour to make my visit viable.
I am passionate about improving the well-being of others and with that in mind I want to be able to make my
therapies accessible and affordable to those living within residential
care. This means that those people who
need it the most can experience the benefit of nurturing touch, providing a
safe time and space for expression which could be the highlight of someone’s
day. I want to feel that I have made a
difference supporting their happiness and well-being, the benefits can have a
positive psychological affect reducing anxiety, depression and inducing a sense
of calmness and well-being.
Feedback from Care Home Registered
Managers is that Care Quality Commission (CQC) are now looking for activities
that provide enrichment to the residents that they care for and I would like to
be a part of the enrichment support offered.
Consent will be required, and
signatures obtained either from the individual providing that they have
capacity, senior care staff can sign on behalf of the individual and for their
LPA if they have discussed the therapy and obtained consent on behalf of the
Prior to any treatments taking
place I would need to be provided with some health information as part of my
initial consultation to ensure that there are no contraindications that would
prevent a person from receiving therapy.
To support the evidence that is required by CQC and to comply with GDPR all records are kept on file within the care
homes, I am also willing to take part in any interviews that CQC may want to do
during an inspection. https://www.cqc.org.uk
