After a little research, I start to uncover that Rich Terapies is the dream of Jay and Sylvan Richardson. Jay has been involved with the NHS as an operational manager and has a passion for a holistic natural lifestyle, whilst Sylvan is an expert in his field of physiological therapy, sports recovery and again passionate about natural therapies. With recognition as the physio for Liverpool Football Club, his services are in demand. It’s a gorgeous sunny morning and even better, it’s a Sunday and I have been scheduled in to meet Jay and the team at Rich Terapies, an understated yet stylish wellness centre in Bowdon, Cheshire. Jay and Sylvan had their dream all planned and they had established a target time of three years to choose a site of what was to be Rich Terapies, when by chance, this site, a quiet secluded suite of rooms in a Victorian villa basement, became available. Jay tells me that the site was perfect - not

on the high street and in a setting that truly does tick all their boxes. With natural wood adorning the treatment

rooms, you immediately have the feeling of being at one with nature. A calm ambience is in place, with relaxing music throughout the three oversized treatment rooms, that can be adapted to both couples or individuals. Te decor is fine, luxurious and artistic but with a chic overtone. After introductions I’m shown to my

treatment room with Will, who is about to make all my aches and pains go away, or at least relieve the strains of everyday life. Will, a fully trained personal trainer/ sports masseur, and whose mentor is Sylvan himself, certainly knew his stuff. After just 30 minutes, I had more movement in my joints than when I had first walked in. With the next step of my day, I am having

a one-to-one chat with Emma, the Energy Psychologist, whose aim was to help me relax and breathe in the tranquillity of

my time here. Emma explained that Rich Terapies has more to offer than just a conventional spa. Tis is truly a place where you can get in touch with your inner self, where personalised, lasting and deeply transformational solutions are offered which promote positive health and wellbeing. I thought at the time “well, what will I get out of this?” and surprisingly, I found I was using the new techniques at home without even trying. Positive thinking and stress evaluation. Wow! I know it all sounds a bit heavy but I can say this did really help. To finish, I had a full body, Hot Lava

Shell massage by the talented Helen whilst simultaneously experiencing a luxury skin treatment from Kate, which incorporated bee venom, colostrum and chaga to help rebalance, repair and stimulate my skin. With all-new technology, the facial and body treatments offered at Rich Terapies delve deep into anti-ageing, replenishing the natural elements your skin needs, which also happens to be deeply relaxing. After the treatment my face looked and felt fully revived. With my Sunday coming to an end I finish with some chaga tea with its potent active ingredient (superoxide dismutase) that limits the damage caused by free radicals. So, Rich Terapies have thought of everything! Even a very naughty cup cake, all served on vintage china... If you have a busy schedule and seem to be

chasing your tail, then Rich Terapies is a place where you can enjoy some ‘you’ time, be pampered, reenergise and feel yourself again. Rich Terapies have Christmas all wrapped up with beautiful gift packages that can be tailored to your own specifications. I am hoping Santa will have a gift voucher for me this Christmas!
