Acupuncture is a holistic health system that is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It addresses the root cause of a problem, treating the whole person rather than just the symptoms.
The balance of energy moving through our body’s channels is disturbed by life’s stresses, from infections and diet to the weather or grief, and Acupuncture uses techniques to restore this balance. Most commonly fine needles are used to stimulate the energy points along with other methods such as those listed below.
Many conditions can be treated successfully with Acupuncture
Homeopathic treatment is a holistic therapy. This means it takes both the emotional aspects of the person into account as well as the physical health problems. Homeopathy heals the cause as well as the symptoms so you shouldn’t have to repeatedly take the homeopathic medicine, like you have to do with conventional drugs as the homeopathic medicine stimulates the body’s own healing response.
Hypnotherapy is a simple but a powerful tool helping to deal with a variety of issues. It uses a state of a light or deep relaxation, where the mind is relaxed, focused and time can pass very quickly accompanied by wonderful feelings of deep relaxation of both mind and body. Hypnotherapy is a scientifically verified and effective technique that can promote accelerated human change, with great results in emotional issues, addictions, self-esteem problems, weight loss and many others.
Nutritional Therapy is about helping you achieve optimum health – that's not simply the absence of disease, but having an abundance of energy, clarity and emotional balance. By building a health reserve via nutritional support, you can also generate resilience to infectious and degenerative diseases, helping you to feel great now and for the rest of your life.
A one-to-one consultation allows for individual analysis of symptoms, genetic predisposition, lifestyle and dietary habits and personal health goals. From this the nutritional therapist can tailor a programme that may include gradual dietary and lifestyle changes, recommended supplements and biochemical tests. Nutritional therapy is a holistic practice that advocates integrating nutrition and lifestyle to mobilise the body’s significant powers of self-healing and regeneration. You will also receive ongoing support as required.
Osteopathy is a complete approach to health for the whole person. Good function requires soundness of structure, ease of movement, coordination of all systems of the body, and a supportive environment.
The osteopath uses carefully selected techniques to improve efficiency of function and remove obstacles to healing; these may include: soft tissue technique, myofascia release, cranial osteopathy, muscle energy technique, counterstrain, thrust technique and lymphatic technique. Each treatment is individually tailored according to the practitioner’s findings and the client’s needs. Lifestyle and exercise advice may be suggested to prevent further problems and involve the client in their own healing process.
Psychotherapy provides a private and confidential space for clients to discuss whatever challenges they might be facing, with a professionally skilled therapist. The therapist does not tell the client what to do; rather, they hold a space for the client to share their thoughts and feelings.
Identifying feelings and ways of thinking helps the person to learn to cope with situations they previously found difficult. The aim is to assist a person in understanding what makes them feel positive or anxious and in the development of this, accept their strengths and weaknesses.
Psychotherapy is designed to encourage the communication of conflicts and insight into problems, with the goal being the relief of symptoms and changes in behaviour, which eventually lead to improved social and vocational functioning, as well as personal growth.
