There’s been a lot of publicity this week on the BBC about the menopause, so we thought we’d summarise the treatments available at Alexandra House that can help with the symptoms caused by the peri-menopause and the menopause. Spa Owner, Maxine, has searched medical publications to find the scientific evidence of the benefits of these treatments:

Aromatherapy Massage

Studies have shown that aromatherapy massage helps to reduce hot flushes, night sweats, depressed mood, irritability, anxiety and physical and mental exhaustion.


Clinical trials have demonstrated that reflexology reduces hot flushes, sweats and night sweats. It also improves overall quality of life.


A recent study has shown improvements in sleep patterns and general quality of life following massage therapy.


Clinical trials have shown that hypnotherapy significantly reduces the frequency of hot flushes and improves sleep quality and sexual function.

Regular therapy with any of the above treatments can help reduce menopausal symptoms and make your day-to-day life more enjoyable and less frustrating. We offer 6 for 5 on aromatherapy massage, reflexology and Swedish massage which is a good cost-effective way of having a regular treatment. Maxine’s partner, Alan, offers hypnotherapy at the Spa too.
