What is Alternative Therapy?

The term 'Alternative' or 'Complementary' therapies typically refer to any kind of treatment that falls outside of mainstream healthcare. Ideally, these therapies work best when utilised alongside conventional treatments or medications and can be used to increase an individual's physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

Here at Alma House Therapies, we now offer an ever expanding range of alternative therapies that are safe to use alongside traditional therapies, without being at risk of contra-indications with modern medicine. Many people feel a great benefit in these additional treatments and they are becoming increasingly popular due to their reported benefits.

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique based on energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing

Crystal Therapy

Crystal healing is a holistic and natural therapy that taps into the energetic power of crystals and how they affect the body and mind. Crystal healing is an energy-based system. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when this becomes stagnant, unbalanced or blocked, it can cause illness. The premise is that crystals help unblock, balance and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way.
