What’s New for Woolpit Clinics
January: the first month of the year and already, we are half way through! We are excited to share what’s new (and not quite so new) here at Woolpit Clinics. Whether you’re looking to try something for the first time or support your health goals for the New Year, we continue to provide a variety of options for you to choose from.
We’ve updated our website and have a full list of treatments and therapies available on our Treatments page with a selection of those that have been added listed below:
Holistic Facial Treatments
It’s a big ‘welcome back’ to holistic, noninvasive facial treatments. Considered, therapeutic beauty treatments that prioritise your skin’s requirements and promote ultimate comfort and relaxation.
Treatments include a gentle massage to improve skin elasticity and circulation, reduce fine lines and signs of ageing, leaving you feeling pampered, relaxed and refreshed. For a truly luxurious experience holistic facial treatments also incorporate massage of the scalp, neck, shoulders and décolletage.
Holistic facials are provided by Veronica Tatarciuc and include a consultation to ensure the products used during the treatment are tailored to your requirements. Veronica uses only Neal’s Yard products for holistic facials which are natural, organic and cruelty free.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapy is an advanced, but gentle form of massage, designed to improve symptoms of fluid retention and circulation of the lymphatic system. This is primarily achieved through very light, rhythmical movements of the skin, which stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels. As a result the lymphatic system is encouraged to work more efficiently.
MLD alleviates fluid congestion and retention, remedying symptoms such as:
- Swollen legs and ankles (often during pregnancy).
- Tired puffy eyes or water retention due to pre-menstrual syndrome.
- It also promotes healing of wounds and burns, and can accelerate the regenerative process following both medical and cosmetic surgery.
Veronica Tatarciuc provides MLD therapy alongside a number of other holistic therapies and massage, click here for more information about Veronica and treatments available. Typically, this is a full body treatment that lasts 60 – 90minutes depending on requirements.
MLD is also incorporated in reflexology sessions with Charmaine Clarke, click here to find out more.
Advanced Therapeutic Massage
This treatment can be applied in two distinct ways depending on requirements: Deep Tissue Massage or Trigger Point Therapy.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a firm and targeted, soft tissue therapy that has a number of therapeutic benefits such as reducing stress and tension in skeletal muscles, as well as easing knots and muscular pain.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are palpable nodules or thickened areas found in taut bands within skeletal muscles. They are locally tender and may produce referred pain, tingling, burning and pins-and-needles sensations.
Trigger Point Therapy is a treatment which uses neuromuscular pressure and deep stretching longitudinal strokes to deactivate the trigger points and release muscular tension created by them in the surrounding area.

More to announce soon!
We’re really looking forward to what 2022 has in store. Soon, we will be introducing another fantastic student who will be joining the Affordable Counselling Service. We also have an exciting opportunity brewing regarding classes and additional services, following a bit of a New Year revamp, which we will be able to share in the coming months. In the meantime, Happy New Year to all and we wish you the very best for the future.
