Chances are, if you’ve made it to a complementary therapy website you have an idea about what you’re looking for. Someone may have told you they’ve found something that was fantastic for sorting out their ache, someone else may have found a particular therapy really relaxing, while the strange sounding therapy was just great for reducing your friend’s stress levels.

There are so many, which one should you go for?


Well, it is a bit of a minefield if you’ve never tried anything like this before. Some of it may sound a bit woo-woo and far fetched, while others look like they may help, but you don’t want to spend money on something that won’t work.

So, where do you start? If you began looking at a website at a particular therapy, may be start with that one. You’ve heard something about it, you think it may help and it’s a good idea to start with one you’ll enjoy and what will do what you want it to. I’ve had people who have tried a few therapies so they can work out which one they prefer; there’s nothing set in stone that once you’ve chosen a particular therapy you have to stick with it.

I always say that part of booking therapies is to get you to listen to your body. Many people are disconnected to the messages our bodies are giving, so therapies give us time to tune in and work out what our body is actually trying to tell us.  If you’ve had a particular therapy recommended by someone, you thought it sounded good and it’s the one that got you looking at possible appointments, then stick with that one. You have to start someone and you don’t need to be sidetracked and confused by lots of other therapies – unless, of course, there’s another one which is really resonating with you!
