Acupuncture is a holistic approach to health based on over 2,000 years of development and refinement in the Far East. The tradition is as much about the maintenance of health as the management of disease. Although sometimes described merely as a means of pain relief, traditional acupuncture is actually used to treat people with a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on improving the overall wellbeing of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms. The skill of an acupuncturist lies in their ability to make a traditional diagnosis from what is often a complex pattern of disharmony. The exact pattern and degree of disharmony is unique to each individual and so following diagnosis, the acupuncturist puts together a personalised treatment plan.
According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as qi – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. The flow of qi can be disturbed, depleted or blocked by many factors, physical, mental and emotional, leading to pain and illness. By inserting fine needles into carefully selected points along the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help to restore its natural balance.
Acupuncture is a widely used form of health care in many countries across the world. Acupuncture is listed by the World Health Organisation as helpful for many conditions.

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. Clients who are referred to an art therapist need not have experience or skill in art. The art therapist is not primarily concerned with making an aesthetic or diagnostic assessment of the client’s image. The overall aim of its practitioners is to enable a client to change and grow on a personal level through the use of art materials in a safe and facilitating environment.
It offers the opportunity for expression and communication and can be particularly helpful to people who find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally.
Initial assessment £ 60/ 1hr
Further sessions sliding scale (depending on length of treatment and client’s income)
The Bowen Technique gently encourages your body to heal itself.
A Bowen treatment consists of a series of small, light and very precise moves over soft tissue, made by the practitioner’s fingers or thumbs, with frequent pauses for the body to benefit from each set. These moves stimulate a release of tension, which may be felt throughout the body. This often results in relief from pain as the body relaxes and realigns, and is just the beginning of a healing process which may continue to work for up to ten days.
It may help with sports/accidental injuries, chronic pain, postural imbalances, frozen shoulder, RSI; problems associated with breathing, digestion, circulation and other body systems; bedwetting; fertility challenges; migraines, headaches and many other conditions. It may help to expedite healing, whatever the body is trying to deal with.
The first treatment will take between 75 and 90 minutes, and subsequent treatments are normally completed within the hour.

Babies and children up to 5 £ 25

Homoeopathy is a holistic and gentle form of healing based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – that whatever can harm can also cure.
Put simply, tiny, safe doses of a remedy are prescribed when someone exhibits the symptoms that a larger dose of the substance that the remedy is made from would have produced in a healthy person.
Take for example Coffea, which is a remedy taken from coffee – a substance which stimulates the nervous system and causes sleeplessness in some people. Coffea taken in tiny quantities has a very soothing effect on the nerves and can actually promote sleep.
As Homeopaths, we are very focused on finding the cause of your health issue and believe that there is a strong link between your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

Sport & Remedial Massage
Sport massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their body for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. But you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. Your therapist will generally concentrate on a specific problem area. You will also be given advice on exercises that can help the problem after the treatment if appropriate.
Remedial massage is one of the most effective and readily available ways to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness. Based on the fact that soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) respond to touch and that most pain is myofascial (soft tissue) in origin. Trigger points (sensitive points in muscles, which radiate or refer pain to various parts of the body) can mimic many conditions. Muscles not only move our joints, they stabilise them, and they provide armour for the internal organs, minor problems with these functions cause more pain than most people realise.
Although many clients who consult a remedial massage therapist have pain as a result of specific injuries (whiplash, falls, sports injuries, etc.), RSI (repetitive strain injuries) and other work-related problems, the vast majority originates in postural (structural) alignment problems that sometimes go back to childhood and adolescence.and lymph, particularly in the injured areas.

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient form of general manipulation and therapeutic massage. For centuries it has treated the mental, physical and emotional imbalances of the body. The combination of Yoga, Reflexology and Acupressure makes it a unique healing art which is based on the theory of 72000 Energy Lines. When these become blocked, the energy becomes stagnant and the body loses its balance, allowing disease to set in.
Thai Massage is a form of passive Yoga where the practitioner applies deep pressure along the energy lines to free the body of tension blockages. Synchronized stretching movements not only promote flexibility, opening of joints and balancing of the muscles; they also massage the inner organs and increase blood oxygenation. Thai massage will leave you feeling both relaxed and energized.
