Healing at the Centre
for Complementary Care, Eskdale, is both simple and profound, a
gentle practice that enables self-repair. We recommend four initial
treatments, which may be scheduled on consecutive days but ideally

treatment can be agreed and arranged.
The clients may be self-referred
or sent by doctors, clergy, social services or other health professionals.
Healing is not condition-specific, and is safe for people of any
age, with any ailment.

be a hardship. No-one is ever turned away because they
are unable to contribute, but we DO ask that people donate as much
as they can honestly afford.

of any physical, mental, emotional or spiritual changes since the
previous session, may take place while the treatment is occurring.

a basic repeating pattern of touch is followed at each session,
successful treatment depends not upon an exact physical routine,
but on sensitive response to the altering circumstances of the client.
Concentration as in meditation or contemplative prayer, and the
ability to listen sympathetically both to the voice and body of
the client are the essential tools of the healer. Healing treatment
is more truly defined in relationship than by technique.
