Want to learn some self help techniques?

If you want to have a little boost between treatments or you you don’t currently have the time to pop in then why not look at some of our non-therapist training programs?

Thanks for teaching me the FRT today. My son Finlay had a really difficult afternoon in school. So I gave him the visual for the therapy and did a full session. He loved it and then sat happily singing away ☺ He is happy to do it again and I am so glad I came and learnt it today. Many thanks xxx

Jane, Upton Wirral

It was my daughter’s first day in high school this morning and last night she was buzzing and couldn’t sleep. I was lay next to her talking to her when she asked me to do her feet. I did her feet and as I finished she said thank you and fell instantly to sleep. Why did I only do it as 12:30 am instead of 10 pm! Functional Therapy rocks!! :0

Susan, Newton-le-willows

My Indian head massage was by far the best I’ve ever had absolutely amazing. Debbie made me feel completely at ease and gave some great advice xx

Gill

fantastic! Best facial and face and head massage ever. Debbie has extra touches she puts in like hot flannels, cold face spray, lip balm etc just make this so wonderful. Thanks so much, my headache has gone!.

Jane, Greasby

I started seeing Debbie as I had a problem with my knees. That was treated successfully, then I started having issues with my back, So I know have a deep tissue back massage as well. I love that Debbie treats me at home and makes me feel very comfortable. Debbie is professional throughout and I would not go to anyone else. I would highly recommend Debbie.

Meg, Little Sutton

Debbie has been treating me for the past 8 years. I started having Reflexology on my feet, which was fantastic as Debbie could identify the areas I was having trouble with. After changing my Job to a driving instructor, I was struggling sitting in the car at a bad angle all day. I asked for a back/shoulder massage. This is amazing!! All the knots in my shoulders and back are worked on, leaving me feeling relaxed with a freedom of movement. Debbie is professional at all times, confident, knowledgeable with a fantastic attitude and personality. I would highly recommend Debbie and wont go to anyone else, in fact I prebook her a year in advance!

Helen, Little SUtton, Wirral

As always a fabulous massage from Debbie. She really reaches the parts others don’t. Roll on 2 weeks! Thanks Debbie x

Brenda

Has really helped relieve the stress in my back over the last year. Very happy

Martyn

I had the most amazing back massage and facial from the owner Debbie. Very deep massage but not painful, so relaxing and cleared the many knots around my neck and shoulders. My face looks and feels so much cleaner, softer and brighter. A wonderful treat for me

Jan

Had a fantastic Deep tissue Back, Neck and Shoulder massage with a facial. Debbie made the whole experience extremely relaxing and enjoyable. She was really helpful and knowledgable providing useful advice on relieving tension in my neck and shoulders. Would highly recommend.

CHloe

My hands and arms feel fantastic after this treatment. The pain in my hands is reduced significantly. Very relaxed, Debbie as always very professional.

Helen, Little Sutton

The Aromatherapy treatment I found most helpful in my trying to relax and destress. The oils were perfect even though apprehensive of smells. Debbie was really informative and found out all of my needs and background resulting in me feeling 100% relaxed and refreshed!! Can’t wait to come back!! Thank you so much!.

Jane, Heswall

I enjoyed everything about the experience from the mix of oils to the ambience and professional manner that Debbie has. Felt very relaxed after and even went to sleep during the treatment as the stress melted away. Thank you.

Pat, West Kirby

I can whole heartedly recommend Debbie from Harmony Holistics and have experienced a number of treatments that are offered. Depending on how I am feeling I have booked reflexology, deep tissue massage, an aromatherapy facial and reiki.
The benefits of these holistic treatments differ, but on the whole I always leave, and continue for a number of subsequent days to feel, relaxed, less stressed, happier, and sleep amazing. After a car crash at the end of last year I went to Debbie with back pain, and after a deep tissue massage I felt significant pain relief.
Debbie is so knowledgeable about her treatments, you feel very spiritual when you are with her, I never want to leave!

Sue, Greasby

Slept like a baby and feel so much better, thank you, Can’t wait until next time.

Helen, West Kirby

I have been having reflexology sessions regularly at Harmony Holistics since Feb 2012. I arrived with a variety of health issues, from a stiff neck, problems sleeping and stress. All of my symptoms have either been dramatically improved or eliminated under Debbie’s expert hands. The benefits I feel after a reflexology session last a considerable length of time and I find I can sleep / cope much better with the daily stresses of life. I always have a future appointment booked with Debbie in order to ‘Top Up’ the positive feelings I experience from these sessions.

Sue, Greasby

Debbie from Harmony Holistics was recommended to me by a friend who knew that after exhausting specialists galore to find the cause of my hard, swollen tummy I was at the end of my tether. She felt that even if Debbie could not solve the issue with my tummy she would provide my wellbeing with a much needed boost.
I had an initial consultation session with Debbie one week and the next week my first full session of RLD – Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage. I felt so calm and relaxed after the session and did exactly what Debbie said – rest and drink plenty of water. That was on Thursday evening. On Saturday morning I woke up and immediately “felt” differently. I was overwhelmed with happiness when I walked past the mirror and noticed that my swollen tummy had literally “gone” – not reduced, GONE!!
3 Specialists, 18 months of tests, scans, poking and prodding and nothing but ONE yes ONE session with Debbie and she had not only found the cause of the problem but resolved it too. I literally cried with happiness. I felt amazing afterwards not only physically but It gave my mental health such a boost too.
Although I am normally an upbeat happy person at the point I met Debbie I was becoming depressed – she literally changed that in just two weeks.
That was over 4 years ago but I still see Debbie every month for reflexology. She keeps my chakras in balance, boosts my immune system and helps me remain healthier than I ever did before.
I would highly recommend Debbie and her healing hands to anyone!!

Irene, Ellesmere Port

My wife started seeing Debbie just under a year a go and couldn’t recommend her enough. I seen the difference in how calm my wife was when she returned home from her reflexology session and I had to try it. I haven’t looked back since and I would recommend Debbie to anyone. Debbie really does know how to relax you, so much so that I have fallen asleep on numerous occasions.

Ian, West Kirby

 I have been going to Debbie for just under a year now for reflexology. I couldn’t think of anyone else I would rather go to. Debbie is so friendly and warm and she has a beautiful soul. My sister started going to Debbie and recommended that I try it and I have never looked back since. I feel so calm and relaxed after my one hour session, I even got my husband to start going! I couldn’t recommend Debbie enough and she offers such a wide range of services. Not only does Debbie provide a wonderful experience but she also gives you tips on calming techniques and books which are so interesting. When I have had a busy and hectic day at work Debbie is the perfect person to calm and relax me. If you are thinking about reflexology or any other service, Debbie is your go to person!

Chantel, West KIrby

I have had a few reflexology treatments and can highly recommend “Harmony Holistics” ..Debbie the proprietor is a very knowledgeable and friendly therapist who delivers excellent treatment that can achieve results when mainstream medical treatments have failed to improve conditions.

Fantastic

Fantastic! Best facial and face and head massage ever. Debbie has extra touches she puts in like hot flannels, cold face spray, lip balm etc just make this so wonderful. Thanks so much, my headache has gone!

Jane, Greasby, Wirral

Just wanted to say thank you for my reflexology treatment yesterday. As always I felt so much better after it and slept like a log.

I have been having reflexology with Debbie for nearly 10 years and have always found her to be professional and friendly. She is always happy to answer any questions or explain things to you. Debbie has also suggested some self-help measures for me to do between treatments. I look forward to my treatments and leave feeling relaxed and positive. Debbie also has warm hands!
