The Human Touch
Affordable therapies for all
The idea for the Human Touch was born originally many years ago when the project leader, Mary, was unable to afford complementary therapies. She went to college to do a reflexology course and was given treatments as part of the course. Her health and well being benefited immediately. She became aware that there were then and still are now, so many people in local communities who, because of their financial and other life circumstances, would normally view complementary therapies as a luxury and she made the decision to always make inclusive space within her therapy practice.
The Human Touch Project is an extension of that original idea. The project opened its doors for the first time in February of 2014. Since then to the current day The Human Touch practitioners have been providing a wide variety of Affordable Therapies for All.
The project aims to :-
- Provide Affordable therapies and beauty treatments for all
- Have a fortnightly clinic at a local community centre
- Provide Affordable therapies and beauty treatments in other local accessable spaces
- Provide Affordable therapies and beauty treatments for all at local well being events/ fairs/charity fund raisers
We host our fortnightly Wednesday clinic from 2 till 5 pm in The Window room at Southwick Community Centre, Southwick, BN42 4TE
We also provide treatments out of clinic hours in 2 other spaces in Portslade and Shoreham by Sea and some of our practitioners can offer home visits

Our fees are £15/£10 for concessions for 30 minutes. £30/£20 for concessions for one hour.
Our concessions include people who are retired, unemployed, in part time employment, self employed, carers and students. The key is in the income. If you have an income of £10,000 a year or less you are welcome at The Human Touch at the concessionary rate.
We have a Facebook page which gets updated every Monday. It contains the latest information about the weekly clinic, the practitioners and about events we are attending. You can make an enquiry, leave messages and book treatments on the page. Visit us by clicking here.
