ABOUT THE CENTRE
The Tenbury Wellness Centre offers holistic and alternative therapies from the heart of Tenbury wells in Worcestershire, England. Holistic practice is a form of healing that considers the whole person - body, mind, spirit, and emotions - in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic philosophy, one can achieve optimal health, the primary goal of holistic practice, by gaining proper balance in life. All of our therapies are delivered to you by experts in their fields.
The running of the centre was taken over by Allison Clarke in January, 2017. Allison has been trained in Reiki since 2013 and also offers card readings, mindfulness and hypnotherapy. For those looking to gain more experience in the practice of Reiki, Allison offers level one, two and three workshops. She has made the centre into a nurturing safe space for all those who visit and gladly welcomes both those with experience and those new to the therapies offered.
WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is an ancient, non-invasive process of healing. It uses Universal Life Force energy to balance and harmonise both your physical and emotional health. Reiki also loosens blocked energy caused by stress and promotes relaxation. When used alongside other medication, Reiki can be a powerful tool to help your body and mind heal themselves. Altogether, Reiki is a relaxing experience for both mind and body.
The Reiki offered at Tenbury Wellness Centre is of the Usui system. Over one hundred years ago, a Japanese man named Mikao Usui began a personal journey that resulted in his discovery of Reiki energy. His practice grew steadily in Japan and, by 1937, was introduced to the West - first gaining a following in Hawaii. The Usui system is passed on between individuals through a defined process of initiation, teaching and practice.
The term "chakra" is derived from centuries of philosophical thought, first originating in India. It refers to the life energy that flows through the human body and embodies the nature of our being. Each chakra relates to different physical and emotional properties, as can be seen above.
When we neglect our emotional or spiritual needs, certain chakra can fall out of balance. For example, if one lacks the basic physical needs for life itself then they will suffer from both physical scarcity as it is commonly understood and from an imbalance in the root chakra. The healing energy of Reiki can be used to aid a process of healing in which chakra are brought back into balance.
TASTER SESSION: £15
Meditation is an ancient practice that trains the mind to induce a state of consciousness that moves beyond the human ego. Inducing a meditative state allows us to let go of whatever stresses we might be feeling in our day to day lives, think about problems with a greater clarity, recuperate energy or even gain access to the spiritual aspect of our mind.
The Tenbury Wellness Centre hosts a weekly meditation group each Tuesday at 7:30pm. Together, we discuss whatever material or spiritual problems we have had over the last week and engage in set meditations to advance our understanding of the practice. Each session draws from Buddhist teachings, but don't worry if you don't practice the religion! The group is open to everyone, whether you have experience or not. Our host, Penny, maintains a welcoming, respectful and friendly environment.

CLINICAL / HOLISTIC MASSAGE THERAPIES
Karen Mendoza is a clinical and holistic massage therapist. She presently offers wax therapy for hands or feet, massage, hopi ear candling, Indian head massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. Karen is available at the Tenbury Wellness Centre every Thursday.
Wax therapy is intended to sooth pain from arthritis and rheumatism, decrease the inflammation of joints and improve improve circulation. Hands or feet are thoroughly covered in paraffin wax, which retains heat to help relieve pain and stiffness. After 10 minutes the wax is removed and a moisturising cream or oil is applied during a short massage.
Massage is used to stimulate circulation in the body. Receiving a body massage brings numerous physical and emotional benefits, ranging from simply relaxing the mind and body to relieving stiff joints and muscles. Karen offers two different types of massage: full body and neck, back and shoulders.

Aromatherapy is the use of blended essential oils during massage. This treatment is often used to de-stress and has become enormously popular as a consequence.
Indian head massage is an ideal therapy for reducing stress, a major contributor to ill health in our society. This treatment is particularly effective in combating mental fatigue and tension headaches.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
HOPI EAR CANDLING
Hopi ear candling is a natural way of alleviating pressurised ear wax. By gently inserting a lit candle of bee's wax into the ear a suction force is created. This gently brings ear wax to the surface, where it can be removed.
Reflexology is a treatment for the feet. Alternatively known as zone therapy, the treatment involves a specific form of foot massage, applied without oil. As an holistic therapy, the intent of reflexology is to bring the body into balance.
