We are very pleased to offer Acupuncture as part of our clinics therapies. It is well documented at providing relief and benefits for a huge range of conditions. It also both compliment Osteopathy incredibly well to combine to form a total body wide boost and powerful healing combination.
Acupuncture has a clearly documented history in China for the last 2500 years, but is thought to have been practiced for over 4000 years. It has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body's equilibrium. Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body's qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common.
We are lucky to have a very experienced acupuncture practitioner working along side us. Terry Lomas utilises traditional acupuncture methods and he's a qualified Osteopath too! Terry has over 30 years experience as both an Osteopath and Acupuncturist and has a wealth of ideas and information.
We have a wonderful massage therapist Esme who works with us. Massage has a long documented history of providing not only pain relief, but improved relaxation, reducing inflammation, promoting feelings of well being, improved injury recovery time etc etc. Esme is a highly skilled massage therapist and also a final year Osteopathic student so is extensively trained in anatomy and physiology and is able to assess your whole body to see where you need help. Massage is safe and gentle and Esme is wonderful!
