WELLNESS AT LOOP
We’ve seen, first hand, a need in Bristol for a more nurturing approach to health and wellbeing.

Reflexology is a safe, non-intrusive therapy that is suitable for everyone. It is based on the theory that there are reflex points in the hands and feet that correspond to the different organs and parts of our body.

Regular treatments can help ease digestive imbalances, insomnia, poor circulation, respiratory problems, balance hormones and reduce stress. Reflexology can also be a great support during pregnancy and help prepare the body for labour.

Bowen Therapy is an holistic hands-on therapy which is suitable for people of any age and level of fitness. Bowen doesn't use force, but allows the body to achieve its own optimum level by making gentle adjustments, aiding relaxation and encouraging self-healing. It can have a calming effect on conditions such as Parkinsons, and is the perfect choice for people who want to relax and de-stress.
Bowen is often referred to as the ‘gentle’ therapy. The pressure used is modified for each individual and is therefore ideal for people who are sensitive to touch, yet it is powerful enough to be sought by sports people who find it helps prevent injury and enhance performance.
SCAR TISSUE RELEASE
McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Therapy has been shown to make a lasting difference in a number of ways such as stopping or reducing pain, itching or hypersensitivity, bringing back feeling where numbness is an issue, and helping with motion and flexibility. It can also make a difference to the scar’s appearance, blending it more into the surrounding area. The treatment may also trigger an emotional response/release related to the cause of the scar.
