The Essential CALM Project provides accessible and affordable therapeutic treatments, activities, groups and workshops (massage, yoga, meditation etc.) from our Charles Street Community Wellness Centre in Heaton. We provide a range of community and commercial holistic therapies from our beautiful forest yurt in the heart of the Gibside National Trust Estate.
We work alongside a number of community organisations in order to improve the quality of life of the individuals we work with and the community we work within, whilst improving our interactions with, and understanding of, our natural world.
Charles Street Community Association is a registered Charity (reg.. no.1010376).
Our accessible therapies include:
Hatha yoga classes every Monday evening at Charles Street, only £5 for 1 hour and 30 minutes of blissful therapeutic exercise.
low cost massage therapies and reiki at the Charles Street Community Centre (Heaton) every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 10AM - 5PM.
Our FemininiTea women's group; offering herbal teas, henna body art, meditation support and inspiration
Why not pop in, and enjoy a therapeutic treatment!
We offer a range of "commercial" treatments at our therapy yurt in Gibside. "Commercial" just means that the sessions we hold here at Gibside, help us to subsidise our free/low cost activities/therapies etc. So when you book a treatment here, you are not only enjoying some individual therapy but helping us to build a stronger, healthier community by helping us to continue our work with those who may not normally have access to these therapies: the people who could possibly be the ones to benefit the most from natural, preventative health care strategies.
So, when you book with Essential CALM at Gibside know your treatment is wholesome and beneficial on a grander scale than just yourself, it will help your community too.
Our charity also addresses the importance of environmentally friendly living, with guidance on more natural healthy lifestyle choices for the individual and for the community, conservation efforts and permaculture, thus reducing the negative impact we have on our natural environment.
We aim to tend to the truly holistic needs of the individuals of our community. Support us on this journey of transformation... and what a better way to make a difference than by booking yourself a deeply therapeutic and relaxing massage session in one of the country's most beautiful National Trust Estates.
The uniqueness of your "Essential CALM at Gibside" therapy
During your treatment; being this close to nature; with only the sounds of the forest to distract you, can help you deeply re-connect with your natural self and your natural surrounds. And once your treatment is finished, your relaxation can continue with a sauntering-float around Gibside's beautiful, closely conserved lands or partake in some creative workshops with the artists that work within the Stables at Gibside, you could also grab a tasty treat at Gibside's cafe... or then again you could simply just Be!
The health benefits of massage
Massage has been shown to not only improve the general health of those with good health, it has been proven to be beneficial in pain management and in reducing the symptoms of dis-ease whilst boosting immunity. Massage can increase energy levels, promote relaxation, improve mobility and increase a persons sense of well being.
Our therapies help rebalance your energies and create a deep level of relaxation and calm within, allowing you to build strong foundations for achieving sustainable levels of good health.
