Supporting Health & Wellbeing
Rowan Holistic Health provides a client-centred approach in improving the health and well-being through accessible and affordable complementary therapies, as well as community education in whole-person health approaches.
We believe that the general health and well-being of individuals can be supported and improved through regular therapy treatments. Our focus is to support your well-being and good health, with highly trained practitioners who have extensive knowledge and experience in helping support individuals with their healthcare choices.
We provide a range of evidence-based complementary holistic therapies, including:
With regular practices held in both Saxon Spires Guilsborough and Brixworth Surgeries, Northamptonshire, home visits for reflexology can also be provided within the surrounding rural area and Leicestershire/Northamptonshire County boundaries and the Market Harborough area, Leicestershire.
Mindfulness Now - The Mindfulness Now programme helps to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, supporting us through life's challenges and helps us be more resilient. It is a synthesis of mindfulness based approaches including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The latter, offers a breakthrough in the clinical treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma and is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) as a treatment of choice for depression. Regular mindfulness practice can help ease anxiety and depression and enables us to feel more relaxed, happier, calmer, have more fulfilling relationships and improved wellbeing, leading to experiencing greater satisfaction in our lives.
An Holistic Approach
Complementary and holistic therapies are designed to treat the whole person, by assisting the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself, not just the symptom or disease. The practitioner takes into account an individual's medical history, emotional condition, general health and lifestyle before planning a personalised course of treatment, using the therapies to provide support through perhaps difficult times, promoting positive, physical, emotional and mental balance.
It has been understood for some time that negative and positive emotions change the complex chemistry of our bodies, and these changes can have a negative or positive effect on the immune system. Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) research has shown that prolonged stress can cause the body to over-produce cortisol and adrenaline, two hormones normally secreted to produce energy as part of the 'fight or flight' response - an essential survival process. However, prolonged periods of emotional and psychological pressures means that the over-production of these hormones can begin to weaken the integrity of the immune system, eventually resulting in a breakdown of normal processes which leads to the onset of a serious health condition or disease.
Our aim is to raise awareness of the potential benefits undertaking a course of treatments can be for your overall health. Whether that be to enhance any current conventional care that an individual may be undergoing, or as a stand-alone self-help approach to improving personal health and well-being.
