March Newsletter

April 9th 2017

Hi Everyone

Wow!! March has been a busy month for us, we have been continuing to build on our client base and we attended our first Health and Wellness fair at the Sandy Bay Holiday Park in Newbiggin by the sea. The day was great for us with many people trying our taster therapies at only £5 for 15 minutes! Amanda was busy with reflexology treatments and I was busy on both our seated chair and the treatment table with Tui Na. We are continuing to look for a suitable clinic for our Saturday morning clinic and hope to have some news soon. This month we are going to focus on Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage.

Focus on…………Tui Na (twee na)

Tui Na or An Mo as it is sometimes called, is a form of massage that uses various different techniques to work the body vigorously. The signature technique of Tui Na would be the Gun Fa technique or rolling, this helps to flush the muscle and tissue and to break down areas of knotting or scar tissue. Far from being a “new age” therapy, Tui Na has been around for centuries and is widely used in Chinese hospitals and clinics today as part of mainstream medical treatment.

How it works ……

A typical Tui Na treatment starts with a consultation to establish the current health position of the client, we then look at the tongue and take the pulses, these diagnostic tools can give the practitioner clues to the body’s state, internally and externally. The treatment itself is carried out with the client fully clothed under a cotton sheet, the sheet is used as a medium in the same respect as oils or creams are used in other forms of massage. A variety of techniques are applied to include, rolling, rocking, hacking, cupping, pushing and pulling. Many of our clients love the soothing rhythm of being rocked and most will comment on this after the treatment. Tui Na can be applied to sports injuries and many general health conditions. We have treated clients successfully for conditions such as plantar fasciitis, lower back pain and more obscure conditions such as Reynaud’s Syndrome.

What are the benefits of Tui Na?

There are many benefits to a Tui Na treatment including:

• Accelerating the body’s natural healing abilities

• Fully clothed treatment

• Can be done seated or lying down

• Can be used to perform deep tissue or superficial tissue

• Can improve sleep

• Proven system widely used in Chinese healthcare

What else do we offer?

We also offer the following treatments in our treatment room:

• Reflexology

• Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage *

• Cupping or Myofascial Decompression *

• Swedish Massage

• Indian Head Massage

• Reiki

*evenings and weekends only

Gift Certificates now available to buy for family and friends!

May Newsletter

30th May 2017

May Newsletter


 Hi everyone, welcome to our May newsletter. Spring has now well and truly sprung and we are heading at pace to the long days of light, as we head towards the Summer season. We have had a busy last few weeks with treatments and our pop up day at Quorum Business Park also went well, thank you to all those at Quorum who came out and supported the event, we hope to come and visit you again soon. Gary also started the Qi Gong Dao Yin 6week seminar at Earsdon Community Centre and the guys taking part are now heading towards week 4 and are learning the form really well, this is something we may look to run regularly.


Focus on…………Qi Gong (chi gong)

Qi Gong is a system of energy work that combines deep breathing with mindful movement and focused intention to create an excellent set of exercises for health and longevity. The Dao Yin or Daoist yoga set is a favourite of mine and consists of 6 exercises that will work the entire body from the fascia, tissues and tendons to the internal organs and lymphatic system. Although not a particularly taxing set of exercises there are a few with deep squats and horse riding positions that help the practitioner build strength as well as achieving physical and mental health. The Dayan Qi Gong or Wild Goose forms have been taught widely now outside of China and classes can be found up and down the country. This system consists of long forms, the first and second of which consist of 64 “moves” in each set, this is a particularly effective health Qi Gong as it provides a full body work out of the internal

and external energies. Exercises such as Qi Gong and Tai chi are being utilized more and more now for general health as well as helping older people with balance and coordination issues, there are many studies that are investigating the potential health benefits of Qi Gong. Why not come along to one of our sessions and find out for yourself?

July Newsletter

8th July 2017

July Newsletter


 Hi Everyone, 


Well June has passed in a flash! We hope everyone enjoyed the very brief week of warm weather and our first mini heatwave of the year? Things have been pretty busy for us in June and July as we make progress on our new Wellness at Work programme. We have put together a package for employers that we hope will be attractive to Business and make some commercial sense, there have been many studies conducted in the UK on the happiness and mental health of employees across many sectors of industry in the UK and the one thing that most can agree on is that staff who feel appreciated and valued are far more motivated and most importantly for Businesses, productive.


 In 2007 the Department for Work and Pensions commissioned Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP to carry out a year long research project called "Building the case for wellness" this was subsequently released in 2013 and identified that wellness programmes had a positive impact on intermediate and bottom line benefits, most of the benefits that companies reported back were in the form of cost savings rather than increased incomes or revenue flows, this is crucial at a time where Businesses are trying to make savings across all areas of their Business. For example the study looked at call centre employees and found that every £1 invested in physiotherapy by the company had a benefit to the company of £34 over 6 months.


We will be launching our Wellness at Work webpage very soon where we can demonstrate the types of service that we can offer to employees, we have been out in the business community recently at open days and workshops to get our message out and the feedback has been very positive. If you would like to organise an open day or taster day in your own workplace, please tell your HR people and ask them to get in touch.


Our recent Dao Yin Qi gong workshop finished and the students who took part seemed to enjoy it and we had some great feedback from the guys, we hope to run another one of these workshops towards the end of the summer so keep your eyes peeled on the website and the newsletters for more info.

September Newsletter

28th September 2017

September Newsletter 

Hi everyone, welcome to our September newsletter. Summer is just about over now, although there has been talk of an Indian summer so we’re hoping it’s on its way! We have had a busy summer, welcoming new clients into the treatment room including a young aspiring bodybuilder who knows the importance of looking after his muscles, although he didn’t enjoy being told he needs rest days! All too often people carry on exercising and using their muscles when they know they’re injured or hurt as they have a specific goal in mind, but we are here to help them realise that rest days and regular massage are just as important.


Back to school

As we’re sure you’re all aware the kids have now gone back to school, the bigger kids are off to college or university (probably enjoying freshers week too much!) and the even bigger kids (Amanda) are also heading back to college! Amanda is attending the Seven Wellbeing Centre in Stockton to further her knowledge in the therapy she loves most – reflexology - where she will be working toward a Level 3 ITEC certificate. If that isn’t enough, she is also working towards a Level 3 ITEC qualification in aromatherapy. It takes one year to complete both courses with practical exams next September and with 140 case studies to be done before then she is going to be very busy over the next year!


Focus on…………Wellness at Work

Wellness at work is important wherever you work, most of us now spend more time sedentary at our desks in the work place, which can have a detrimental effect on our mental as well as physical health. With employers under pressure to cut costs and maintain productivity, many are now implementing workplace incentive schemes to energise and invigorate their workforce. These programmes can support employees towards healthy positive outcomes in the workplace and employees will be left feeling valued, which in turn will increase the employers return on investment in the future of their workforce. So, if you’re an employer or indeed an employee, we can help you to set up a Wellness at Work Plan that will benefit both the employee and the employer by offering services such as; pop up massage days, weekly or monthly plans, employer reward schemes and treatment taster day. The therapies that we offer include seated massage, reflexology, reiki and Tui Na massage, more information can be found on our Wellness at Work page on our website www.energytherapies.co.uk 


Dare we mention the ‘C’ word?

Christmas – there we said it! Christmas is coming and if you’re finding yourself unsure of what to buy a family member or friend, why not buy them one of our gift certificates? These are an excellent present for the person who might have everything but never has any ‘me’ time. Get in touch to discuss the price options for whichever therapy you want to treat someone to by emailing us at [email protected] or send us a message though our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.

Fire Cups

November Newsletter

26th November 2017

November Newsletter 

Hi everyone, welcome to our November newsletter.  It feels very wintry this past week and the first hard frosts have been on the ground here in Northumberland, the Christmas rush is beginning and Christmas trees have even popped up in some of the windows in our street!


It has been another busy month for us both with Gary completing his advanced cupping techniques and well on his way to a masters (fingers crossed) and he has been accepted as a member of The Total Therapy Association.  Amanda is now well into her own CPD training and study and is hard at work with college and case studies, we hope to continue offering top quality professional therapies to all of our clients. 


Did everyone survive Black Friday? If you have walked up and down the high street or been dragged from sale to sale, what could be a better way to unwind from the madness than a soothing energy therapy, this is the perfect time to buy a reflexology gift voucher for a loved one to soothe those aching feet and Amanda is very skilled in the art of reflexology for relaxation. You can find the details below.


Sports Injuries...

This past month Gary has been busy with the fire cups treating a range of sports injuries, we have seen clients for rotator cuff injuries, pulled muscles, lower back pain and another plantar fasciitis case. We seem to have a plantar magnet in our clinic or maybe it is becoming a more common sports injury? Poor fitting shoes, not enough foot support and not stretching correctly can all be contributing factors in plantar fasciitis injuries, the good news is that we have a very high success rate treating and rehabilitating this injury. Give us a call and see if our cups can work some magic for your injury.

Summer Newsletter

25th July 2018

Summer Newsletter 

Hi everyone and welcome to our Summer newsletter. It has certainly been hot, hot, hot these past weeks and parts of the Country have gone into drought! We hope you have been looking after yourself in the sun and applying your sun creams and after sun lotions?  Are you drinking plenty of water? It is vital when conditions change to tweak our own daily routines to keep hydrated which will keep our skin healthy, did you know that an estimated 86% of melanoma skin cancers in the UK (around 13,600 cases) every year are linked to too much exposure to sunlight and sunbed use? (Cancer Research UK) It is therefore vital to look after yourself in the strong sunshine and if you are feeling a bit frazzled by a combination of sultry nights and poor sleep then why not book a therapy with us to help recharge the batteries? We offer relaxing Swedish massage, a therapeutic reflexology treatment or a session of cupping to soothe tired and aching muscles, get in touch today and see how we can help.


Drum Roll Please.........

Gary, our Chinese Medicine Guru sat his advanced Clinical and Medical Cupping Diploma back in November 2017 and this week had his certificate posted out after having his case studies signed off by  Yanagi Healing Arts and Clinics, this is a further example of our commitment to continual professional development and dedication to bringing our clients the highest level of professionalism that we can achieve. We are also working on some new therapies and hope to bring exciting news towards the end of 2018, watch this space........
