I am also a qualified Holistic Therapist and I have been running Poppy Therapies from my home treatment room in Mirfield for over 15 years. Children can also gain great benefit from some of my treatments, in particular Reflexology and Massage, both of which can be adapted for younger children with a story theme.
My home therapy room is calm and relaxing, and you can stay with your child throughout their treatment. I am fully qualified and also hold up to date enhanced DBS and Paediatric First Aid Certificates, allowing me to work with children of all ages.
Reflexology is an ancient natural therapy treatments which has been practiced around the world for thousands of years. The feet are first soaked in a footbath with a soothing blend of aromatherapy oils, this makes them smell nice but is also an opportunity to allow some healing and calming aromatherapy oils to absorb into the body via the pores on the feet!
The feet are then treated to a gentle combination of massage and manipulation of pressure points which correspond to different areas of the body. Reflexology is a relaxing experience and doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t usually tickle either but I do get occasional fits of giggles from younger customers 🙂
Reflexology is very good at balancing the body and can help with stomach problems, headaches, stress, anxiety, sleep problems, aches and pains and hormonal issues of all kinds.
Children’s treatments are generally shorter then adult treatments so younger children might have a half hour treatment, teenagers 45/50 minutes depending on age.
Depending on the issue a course of treatments is generally more beneficial.

Gentle massage of the head, neck, upper back and shoulders, done over clothing and with a story! This is designed to be a fun session with some parent participation if you wish. I will do a story massage with your child, and then teach you both some relaxing moves to take away and use at home.
Ideal for children who struggle to get to sleep, I can teach you a short routine so you can introduce a soothing massage into your bedtime routine. Zzzz….
