Complementary therapies

A caring relationship is an intense and intimate one and the feelings that arise can be very powerful. The fear of being unable to cope, a sense of guilt and resentment on either side can lead to stress. Stress can have many effects, such as headaches, backaches, constant colds, tiredness, skin problems and stomach troubles. The psychological effects can lead to bad temper, depression, anxiety and tension.

IMG_8225Trafford Carers Centre offers a range of relaxation therapies including reflexology and massage to carers in Trafford at our Health and Wellbeing Centre in Sale. We can provide two free sessions.

Our relaxation therapies are very popular, meaning that many people are on the waiting list. We try to prioritise people who have been on the list the longest and those under significant stress.. We rely on the support of volunteers to deliver the therapies and are always keen to hear from people who can help out and help reduce the waiting list times.

If you feel you would benefit from reflexology or massage and would like to book a session at Trafford Carers Centre then call on 0161 848 2400.

What happens when you go for treatment?

Once you arrive for your appointment the therapist will introduce themselves, help to make you feel at ease and answer any questions you may have. They will need to take some brief notes about your medical history. A session lasts an average of 30-60 minutes.
