Health treatments

At Apollonia House Dental & Healthcare we can help with a whole host of health treatments including clinical reflexology, podiatry services, menopause clinic and remedial massages. Our in house therapist, Vicky Griffiths, has a wealth of experience, she says

"I've always been interested in health and well-being. Feeling so much better after a massage, a run or a yoga practice. I was intrigued by how the body and mind responded so well to these activities and began to learn more.

I've been practising yoga for over 15 years, and during this time I started going for regular massages, not just for relaxation, but as a form of physical and emotional therapy. I was fascinated by the effects on my overall well being. I went on to study Yoga more deeply and also became professionally trained in Remedial Massage at the Northern Institute of Massage in 2011. I've continued to train regularly and have also qualified in Advanced Sports Massage, Pregnancy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Indian Head Massage."

Remedial and sports massage aims to remedy specific problem areas and is not carried out in a particular sequence but in accordance with your needs.

Rehabilitation advice is also given to help improve recovery. I'm a great believer in taking responsibility for our own well-being and the huge health benefits that can be made by making small changes to our lifestyles. 

    Pregnancy massage 

    Pregnancy Massage

    Pregnancy massage is relaxing, safe and very effective in addressing fatigue and stress, boosting your energy levels and helping you to feel your best. Regular massage can be a great way to relieve the strains and other problems associated with pregnancy.
    Massage can be given safely after the first trimester, right up until your baby's birth. If you are having a difficult pregnancy or have certain health problems, you are advised to discuss this with your midwife or doctor who may need to give their approval prior to a treatment

      Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a very gentle, rhythmic style of massage that improves lymph circulation and the body's immunity against infection. Lymphatic massage has powerful cleansing, relaxing and pain-relieving effects that can be very effective in maintaining overall health and well-being. It is a completely natural treatment which aids the body's own healing processes.
      Lymphatics is an amazing system which works to provide immunity against disease and facilitate the removal of toxins and metabolic waste from the body.

        Indian head massage is a safe, simple, yet effective therapy that helps reduce stiffness and improves mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It stimulates blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids in the elimination of toxins, so as well as providing relief from aches and pains, it can also promote hair growth and provide relief from a range of disorders.
        It is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years and is part of the Hindu healthcare practice of Ayurveda.
