Welcome to the Tranquillity Therapies Blog! Be sure to bookmark the page!
Each month there will be a different promotion or special offer to enable clients to get the best possible value. These will be on the "Tranquill Times Newsletter" and on the Special Offer page.
However, there will be some short-terms offers running too - so keep those eyes peeled, and watch this space for announcements!
Calm Moments will also be about inspiring thoughts, positivity and my general ramblings!
Do be sure to give some feedback - dont be shy!
It can be hard to find time to relax, or, “Just Be”. We lead increasingly busy lives, with pressure to be here, there, and wearing a plethora of hats to fulfill any given role. When did you last have some Me time? Yesterday? Last week? Last month? Can’t remember? By not having the chance to unwind, means that many of us are going about our daily life and routine being stressed and tense. (Sound familiar?) By pushing ourselves to the limit, we are in danger of putting ourselves at risk, and vulnerable to high blood pressure, heart problems and mental health issues.
Complementary Therapies can really help to get you to a place of relaxation. By promoting calm, releasing stress, and improving mental clarity thus improving your sense of well-being and feeling uplifted. They can also help ease insomnia, anxiety, stress, and agitation.

Wondering what Reflexology actually does, and how us therapists can tell which part of you is unbalanced? Take a look at the Foot Map for yourself, see if you can find any interesting bits that correspond to any aches and pains... (if you click on the image, it will come up in a pop up box, and will make it clearer!)
One of the most frequent questions I am asked is "How often should I have (Reflexology/IHM/Massage etc) a treatment?". I answer each person with the following.
"Ideally, it should be once a week. However, most peoples finances will not accommodate that, so fortnightly is best, then monthly, then 6 weekly".
It can be very difficult fitting in regular treatments when running around after a family, juggling your life with your employment as well. And, you know what? That's why you need your treatments!
Stress is the nations top killer! If left unchecked, it can contribute to many ailments - many life threatening. Heart Disease, Stroke, High Blood Pressure, Depression...these are just a few - the list is a very long one indeed! One of the ways you can help yourself, is to look after your own health. This may be by having a complementary therapy, choosing a sport or past time to participate in, and giving yourself time.
Brrrr! Whilst we're in this awful cold snap, therapies are going to be limited to those with minimum flesh exposure! Thought Field Therapy, Reiki and Facial Uplift massage are still available!
Welcome to 2017!!! I hope to provide continued support to your wellbeing :)
Gift Certificates will no longer be available to purchase. Those that are outstanding, and within the "use by" date, will, of course, be honoured.

There's a competition running, but you need to see a particular thread in my Facebook group...here
TFT, or Tapping can help a plethora of 'ailments'. From weight loss, food cravings, pain through to fears and phobias, Tapping could help you.
Remember to keep hydrated in this heat. Drink plenty of liquids, take refreshing ice-tea and dress lightly.
Summer is here, and soon people will be off on their annual family Holiday.
So, is a “stay-cation” on the cards? Or, are you off to sunnier climes??
For those who are flying, does ear pain affect you or someone you are travelling with? Would you like to be more comfortable during the flight? Hopi Ear Candles can help do just that – they can help reduce the pressure, by allowing the individual to clear their ears (via swallowing to make them pop) the pain should be minimal.
If you’re having a stay-cation, and it’s because you or a close one has a Flying Phobia, why not address the issue and try Thought Field Therapy (Tapping). Whether its heights, or fear of the flight itself, Tapping can help clear the phobia.
Both of these therapies are available at Tranquillity Therapies, and, for the remainder of July, are on promotion.
Apparently, two thirds of the nation suffer with a sleep problem, and the quantity and quality of our sleep affects our overall wellbeing and quality of life..
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Stewart on the birth of their gorgeous baby - another Tranquillity Therapies success story!!
There's a competition running in the Tranquillity Therapies facebook group - why check it out?
Whats the difference between Massage and Reflexology, I hear you ask? Well, basically, Massage is working on the body - whether back, stomach, head, face etc. and requires you to remove clothing. Reflexology concentrates only on the feet or hands, and uses holds, strokes and finger walking. Requires removal of shoes & socks only...simple!
Mobile phone up and running! All systems are go!!!
***PLEASE NOTE: My mobile phone has died. Please make contact via the webform or email until further notice. Thankyou!***

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a fabulous festive season, and a peaceful 2016!
The Christmas Crackers were certainly well attended! Perhaps it should be an annual feature?!
Leading up to Christmas, and starting on 30th November, there will be a selection of "Christmas Crackers". These are very special offers, at a very discounted rate.
The first Christmas Cracker is 30th November to 5th December. Indian Head Massage is being offered at £10 for a 30 min treatment!
There are very few spaces left, so if you're interested, do make contact to secure your booking!
Completed part one of Neuroflexology - its a wonderful, new kind of therapy, I can see so much potential with this! If you'd like to be considered for a case study, and can commit to 6x 1hour treatments, please email or text.

What an awful start to the Summer! Its wet and windy...why not book yourself a relaxing, uplifting treatment...you know you're worth it...
With the weather being rather warm, do keep hydrated. NHS guidelines say 8x glasses of water per day. Remember though, if you've been exercising or the heat is extreme, you're likely to need more..
Re-vamped website - the marvellous chaps at Webhealer have given the website a thorough overhaul. Hope you like it as much as I do!!
Do you suffer from back, neck or shoulder pain? Migraines? Then you should try Vertical Reflex Therapy(VRT)! Its a very quick therapy, usually used in conjunction with a classical Reflexology treatment. VRT is carried out with the client standing/weight bearing, so that the therapist can work 'deeper'. Feedback is that it can be uncomfortable, but its worth it...
Pleased to share with you that I have completed my Health and Nutrition course - another tool in my therapist toolbox :) .
Very pleased to announce that £252 was raised on the Charity Day! Thanks to everyone who was involved!
