Health and Wellbeing

Headaches, Pain Anxiety and Stress: 

As the song goes……The back bone’s connected to the neck bone, …..which is connected to joints, muscles and a whole skeletal system composed of cartilages, ligaments and other tissues. Like any building, a body is only as solid as its structural core and occasionally day to day pressures create a build up in and around the muscles generating tension and pain. 

The causes of pain are complex and we are not here to diagnose simply offer some relief if we can. 

Here at The Retreat we feel it is important to look at pain from a holistic perspective.  

Holistic medicine means consideration of the complete person, physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually, in the management and prevention of disease. It is underpinned by the idea that what is going on physically has an inter – relationship with our mental wellbeing.Thus pain, is often felt to be worse when we are stressed or anxious . 


Treatment will of course depend upon any underlying medical problems that are diagnosed but we have a number of proven Holistic therapies that we feel can offer a  degree of comfort and help with the management of chronic conditions. 

Our highly trained and very experienced specialist will often use treatments in combination to enhance and speed up the healing process.
