Manual therapy is a service which helps reduce pain and improves or restores mobility - often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medication and their side effects. The therapist will begin with an examination and from this they can develop a unique plan for you, using different treatment techniques in order to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. You will be taught how to prevent or manage your condition so you can achieve life long health benefits.
Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body's energy flow (Qi) into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
Neurological rehabilitation is a form of treatment designed for people with diseases, trauma (acquired head injury), or disorders of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.
Hydrotherapy Exercises such as floating, general body movements, stretches, and walking in water are beneficial, as water's natural buoyancy allows freedom of movement without jarring or straining the body. Its natural resistance encourages strengthening of the muscles, and its unique properties alleviate pain and facilitate improved health. I can be booked to treat you in a local pool (or if you're lucky enough to have your own pool).
