A COMPLEMENTARY therapy centre in Torquay is introducing a range of workshops to help people appreciate the growing popularity of holistic therapies.
Helen Hoyte and her team at Ancient Elements in Old Mill Road, Chelston, have already held several successful workshops in massage and Reiki at the nearby Red House Hotel.
She said: "Now we are expanding what we offer to include baby massage courses, an introduction to aromatherapy and reflexology and traditional Indian head massage.
"We will also have more Reiki courses and a Chakra workshop.
"So many of our clients have said they would love to try out our techniques in their own homes, that running workshops seemed a natural progression."
Helen and senior therapist Kelly Thorn will also be holding refresher courses in anatomy and physiology for therapists who would like to update their skills, and also a similar course for beginners wanting to understand the workings of the human body.
Helen added: "This is an exciting new venture for us. Most of our courses will be at the Red House hotel where meals, snacks and refreshments will be available. But a small number of them will be held at our own studio.
Kelly said: "Already one of our most popular choices is the baby massage course. As a mother of two I can honestly say there is no better way of bonding with babies and little ones than the art of massage.
"But like everything else, there are right ways and wrong ways.
