Acupuncture is used for a wide range of health issues. Your acupuncturist uses TCM Acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which treats the whole person, body and mind, not just symptoms. It is well researched, refined and has been developed for centuries. Acupuncture is now widely used and accepted all over the world.
Your Bowen Therapist makes a series of specific rolling moves, using varying pressure, over muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves which sends neurological impulses to the brain. This is followed by periods of rest whereby your Bowen Technique therapist may occasionally leave the room to allow your body to respond; rebalancing and realigning itself.
Your chiropodist works on anything from routine care of your feet, toenails and calluses to diabetic ulcerations and infections. At various times in life, circulatory impairment, as well as degenerative joint and skin conditions are common. Your podiatrist also addresses pain in the legs, knees, hips and back, and looks into the way your feet function during standing and walking. Orthotics can also be arranged where required.
Corrective Exercise, Coaching and Rehabilitation provides a means of improving posture, alignment, strength, flexibility and as a result freeing the body from injury and pain.

Counselling and other talking therapies like Psychotherapy and Psychology, allows you to talk about your problems and explore difficult feelings in a confidential environment. Counselling works with you to deal with issues that are confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It is an opportunity to speak to a professional who is caring, non-judgmental and independent. During counselling therapy you can explore your options and will be supported in making your own choices. You may feel more in control of your situation and more able to make changes in your life.
A Hot Stone Massage involves the application of heated, volcanic stones to key points on the body. These warm stones expand the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste materials through the body, resulting in a sedative effect on the nervous system. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage, leaving you feeling relaxed but energised.
NeuroKinetic Therapy® (NKT) provides an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel and many other injuries, addressing pain at its source: the Motor Control Centre of the brain. NKT can quickly and accurately correct the dysfunctional postural and movement patterns that are the source of most mystifying chronic pain and degeneration of the muscles and joints.
