A soothing and gentle massage experience
Life altering illnesses such as cancer, diabetes or neurological conditions have a huge impact on day to day lives, often resulting in pain, increasing stress levels. Ordinarily this would be the perfect time to indulge in self-care and have a massage treatment, however, it may be upsetting to know that many facilities may not be able to offer massage treatments to those who have a life altering condition, denying you the treatment you need.
Here at VIDA Clinics, we want to welcome everyone, including those diagnosed with life altering illnesses. This is why we offer a touch therapy treatment, designed in collaboration with oncology specialists to suit those struggling with life altering illnesses.

They will develop a treatment plan to determine the best course of treatment for you, answering any questions you may have. During your treatment your therapist will use organic products to massage your body with slow, rhythmic movements that will send you into a deep state of relaxation helping to alleviate any stress and anxiety. At the end of your treatment your therapist will bring you round and allow you time to rest and recuperate. Following your treatment, your therapist will suggest maintaining optimum hydration, rest, and recommend future treatment options.

Reduce your stress levels with touch therapy
Touch therapy uses the power of touch to reduce the stress hormone cortisol and increase happy hormones serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine. This allows the body to reach a parasympathetic state, slowing down the heart rate and encouraging the brain into Alpha-Theta waves. The body and mind reconnect allowing rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit and a natural boost to immunity.
