We practice only techniques for which we have specific certificated professional training. Orchard Therapies specialises in therapeutic massage techniques. All massage therapies are effective for muscle problems arising from work, play and general life use abuse and overuse.
As a Complementary Therapist I see the distress caused to people during the long mental decline of Alzheimer's disorder, and the debilitation and loss of independence that goes with it. I also see the distress of family and carers who are often in need of support themselves and who are often struggling.
Physical exercise is one of the strategies to help prevent Alzheimer's. As hiking is my hobby I find that doing this 26 mile trek from Stonehenge to Avebury is a suitable way for me to express my support for the Alzheimer's community.
Please help me to raise as much funding as possible to help prevent Alzheimer's, and care for people with Alzheimer's and dementia, and those who look after them.

A relaxed body and mind are better able to deal with life situations than when stressed. Learning to control and balance stress with relaxation is an essential part of holistic health. It should also be a process of life enrichment by doing what brings one satisfaction and a sense of wellbeing.
A holistic approach may involve the use of:
- A well balanced diet and nutritional supplements
- Rest and sleep
- Managing stress
- Relaxation techniques
- Applied massage
- General exercise advice
- Specific exercises
It has also been shown that attitude and behaviour can influence one’s resistance to disease. Orchard Therapies employs a holistic approach along with specialised massage techniques.
Treatments are refined by the application of different techniques depending on the presenting symptoms, our recommendations and your personal choice. We specialise in muscle problems, joint dysfunction and repetitive strain injuries. We can help with the aches and stiffness from being in the car for too long, to waking up with a stiff neck, arthritis, back pain and many other common ailments and conditions.
Tui na (Chinese medical massage), Sports Massage and Sports Therapy, Aromatherapy and Reflexology are all used to improve general health and wellbeing as well as focusing on individual problems. All initial treatments include a free consultation.
