Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the key components of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM),and is among the oldest healing practices in the world. It is characterised by a collection of procedures which involves the stimulation of points on the body either by:

Penetrating the skin with needles that are then manipulated manually

Or by electrical stimulation

The Hale Clinic offers the following different types of acupuncture options:

Traditional Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture focuses on the individual rather than their illness or isolated symptoms. Pain and illness is regarded as a sign that the body is out of balance. The aim of Traditional acupuncture is to re-establish the free flow of qi, to restore balance and stimulate the body’s own self-healing resources. This is achieved by inserting ultra thin, sterile, disposable needles into specific points which correspond with the meridian channels.

Auricular Acupuncture

The ear is a valuable tool in rebalancing the body and provides an effective and accessible means of assistance at a fundamental level. The ear functions as a minute representation of the body in the same way as the foot does in reflexology. Disharmony within the body can be reflected onto the ear as an area of inflammation, white or grey nodules and even scarring. By using very small acupuncture needles on the ear, the acupuncturist can stimulate the energy at these points, helping to address imbalance in the body. Sometimes small plasters with little gold balls or seeds are left over certain points on the ear to maintain the affects of the session, and enable the client to be active in their own health by stimulating these specific areas. As well as rebalancing the body, Auricular acupuncture facilitates chemical changes that occur within the bloodstream. Auricular acupuncture can be used with other styles of acupuncture or on its own.

Biopuncture

Biopuncture is a therapy whereby specific body locations (acupuncture points, trigger points, reflex areas etc.) are injected with biologically active substances. It is a combination of acupuncture and homeopathy – enhancing the efficacy of both and making the combination therapy more powerful and effective.

Biopuncture is mainly used to relieve pain, inflammation, swelling and toxin accumulation. It is excellent for musculo-skeletal problems (due to injuries, bad posture etc), to alleviate organ dysfunction and to facilitate detoxification and stimulate self-healing processes on deeper levels for any chronic and degenerative conditions. It can also help to modulate the immune system in auto-immune disorders.

The advantage of injections is that the absorption rate is 100%, the delivery to target tissues is fast, precise and there is a depot effect, i.e. the remedies are released slowly over several days into the tissue, which creates a more long-term response and action of the remedies over several days. This is contrary to oral uptake, where a big part is lost due to suboptimal digestion and excretion of the remedies usually takes place within several hours – meaning their therapeutic effect is lost.

Biopuncture is especially indicated in the following conditions:

Musculo-skeletal pain/injuries (swollen ankle, whiplash, knee pain etc)

Arthritis/osteoarthritis

Digestive problems (bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, spasm)

To stimulate liver –and lymphatic detoxification

Kidney problems and to help the whole urinary system

Weak immunity, recurrent colds/flus

Female/male reproductive conditions, infertility

Asthma, tinnitus, high blood pressure

Diabetes, obesity

Eczema, psoriasis, acne and other skin conditions

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless therapy that can help reduce the signs of ageing. It involves the use of tiny disposable needles inserted into various acupuncture points on the face. By stimulating these points, energy blockages are cleared and both oxygen and blood flow are increased to the face. In addition lymphatic drainage is promoted. At the cellular level this helps the skin to remove toxic waste effectively and thus maintain efficient rejuvenation of the cells.

The session results in plumping up the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and dissolving lines of tension. However, importantly at a deeper level, collagen and elastin fibres are stimulated to encourage regeneration which can keep us looking younger longer. The needles are left in the face for approximately 30 minutes and the whole procedure is very relaxing. A minimum of 6 sessions is generally required to see the benefits however even after one session the skin can look rejuvenated and radiant.

Addictions And Habits

Addiction is the result of the Limbic System becoming hijacked and the brain believing that the person has a survival need, which is then reinforced by the chemical Dopamine being produced and released. Addictions can also often negatively impact the people around the person with the addiction.

Humans can become addicted to any mind-altering substances - drugs (prescribed, legal and illegal), alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine and even food; many millions of people are addicted to sugar, fat and white flour.

We can also become addicted to behaviours and thoughts: work, exercise, sex, love, relationships, gambling, self-harming, computer games, Internet, pornography, shopping, adrenaline, crime, religion, anger, worry, guilt, fantasy, perfectionism, fear, envy, power, financial trading, fame, co-dependency and even grief.

These “process” addictions can be just as damaging as drugs- sometimes even more so. For example:
Family relationships are destroyed by work and sex addictions.
Gambling and shopping addiction can create huge debts and stress.
Food and exercise addictions can seriously harm the body.
Love and fantasy addiction can take over your mind and create enormous emotional pain.

Often, Addictions are about control, trying to not feel certain feelings and to create desired feelings (self-esteem, confidence, euphoria, numbness, excitement, courage, etc).

Our approach to treating all addiction, including both substance abuse and behavioural addiction, is based on the most current clinical evidence. Our therapy treatments are put in to practise by our wide range of experienced and diverse therapists, who offer alternative approaches to give you both the knowledge and coping skills to live without the use of harmful chemicals or addictive behaviours.

Allergies 

What is an Allergy?

 An allergy is when the body has an inappropriate response to a substance which is not normally harmful to the body's immune system. 

 Our immune system is a highly complex defencemechanism which helps us fight infection and disease. However, when a person has an allergic response, it's when the body has wrongly identified a non toxic substance believing it's a foreign intruder. The body then it releases chemicals in order to protect itself, although in this instance it is an abnormal response. This abnormal response causes a reaction(s), otherwise known as an allergic symptom(s).  In some extreme or severe cases the white cells (leucocytes), the cells in the immune system, overreact causing or creating more damage to the body whereupon the allergic reaction becomes a disease. Severe allergic reactions such as anaphaylaxis, is a severe, potentially life threatening allergic reaction, occurring within minutes of exposure to an allergen. This reaction must be addressed immediately by emergency medicine.

 Substances that provoke allergic responses are called allergens. The  most common symptoms are itching (skin rash), nasal congestion, headache, fatigue, shortness of breathe, hives, and coughing.

 The most common allergens are pollen, (flower and tree), grass, dust, mold, **specific foods, animal hair, dust mites, and medications. Chemicals found in shampoo, washing powder and soap in addition to organophosphates ie, chlorphyrifos, benzoic acid, sulfites/sulfur dioxide formaldehyde resin, allethrin, Pentachlorophenol (PCP)and xylenes,

 The difference between a food allergy and food intolerance. 

An intolerance is the body's inability to digest and process food correcty.  This may be due to a lack of correct enzymes. On the other hand, an allergy occurs . when the immune system produces an antibody response to food. The ingested food is seen as a threat and is mistakenly treated as a potential harmful substance, triggering a protective response. 
 

**Highly allergenic foods
Chocolate, corn, eggs, peanuts, rice, shellfish, strawberries, tomatoes,  wheat, yellow food dye…


Functional medicine, simple blood tests and NES health are able to identify and treat allergies and intolerance.

Christina Barton, Linda Crawford.


 Ayurveda 

Ayurveda medicine seeks to address the root causes of disease rather than the symptoms to achieve a state of health and balance.

To establish these root causes, it is imperative for the practitioner to understand the history, lifestyle and dietary habits of the client. Ayurveda medicine uses specific methods to establish imbalances, so that the appropriate course of action can be taken. This varies according to the individual, but can include herbal preparations, a course of purification (Panchakarma), massage, exercise, breathing techniques, meditation, and dietary and lifestyle advice.

 Bio-resonance

Bio-Resonance therapy is a technique that combines holistic principles with electrical technology. The device is used for both diagnostic and therapeutic feedback  purposes.

Both the BICOM, EEG Neurofeedback system and LIFE Biofeedback System are available at The Hale Clinic.

The BICOM device was originally developed over 40 years ago and uses a combination of manual Biofeedback techniques with electrical technology.

Our cells and organs produce electromagnetic fields just like radio waves. Different frequencies are produced in different parts of the body and by different diseases. The Bicom device picks up the electrical frequencies from one part of the body, it then amplifies the healthy frequencies and plays them back into a weak or diseased part of the body. The disease frequencies picked up by the antenna are reversed or inverted (phased out) and played back into the body to neutralise the disease. When you invert a frequency and play it back onto itself, the original wave is extinguished. This method rebalances your body’s energies to a healthy state. This may need to be repeated several times but can eliminate the cause of the disease permanently.

BioMagnetism Therapy

What is Biomagnetism ?

Although the Ancients used magnet therapy, Biogmagnetic Pair Therapy is a relatively new & revolutionary science which can help the body heal from many illnesses.  Pairs of powerful magnets of opposite polarity are placed in specific areas of the body that the therapist has identified as being unbalanced.  The magnets work together to cancel out pathogens and enable the body to heal itself.

The body is a magnificent machine and it works pretty much automatically at a normal and neutral pH level of around 7.3.  But our lifestyle or trauma sometimes cause magnetic fields and acid & alkaline points to develop in the body, allowing pathogens to accumulate and flourish to dangerous levels.  So it is the job of the therapist to find those unbalanced points, place pairs of magnets accordingly and bring balance to the affected part of the body enabling it to heal.

What is Neuro Biomagnetism?

It's a technique that restores emotional and psychological wellbeing in a fast track way using virtual scenarios and transcranial magnetic stimulation.  It works to change thought patterns and old ways of thinking/doing that are holding us back in our current lives.    This is a very interesting way of training your brain and freeing your mind.  Neuro can be done in separate sessions or in conjunction with Biomagnetism - it helps to combine it because the origin of illness is often trauma and emotion.  See Blog for a post of NCODE.

What can Biomagnetism Heal?      

Biomagnetism can help treat an infinite number of physical and psychological conditions ranging from mild depression and stress through to chronic and life threatening diseases.  It identifies dysfunction in organs, glands and tissue through kinesiology (muscle test response using the patient's feet).  It is non-invasive and can be very successful.  However,  as with every method of healing, it is also dependent on the severity of the illness and the willingness of the person who is suffering from it, to want to heal and change their lifestyle. 

What happens during a treatment ?   

Initially I take a personal history from you and then ask you to lie on a couch so I can scan your body using magnets and kinesiolgy (muscle testing) to find any imbalances.  I apply magnetic pairs to any areas I find imbalances. You will be dressed and comfortable during the session, it is not invasive and it does not hurt.  If anything, you may fall asleep during a treatment.   Wear comfy clothes and be prepared to remove your shoes.  

Are There Any Side Effects?      

Biomagnetism continues to work through the body for several days after treatment and it is possible to feel a mild 'healing crisis' -  a detoxification. Not everybody feels it but it is possible to feel tired, itchy and maybe have a headache or an upset tummy but symptoms quickly pass.  As we bring the body into balance, pathogens have to be eliminated in some way -  through the skin, the bowel, the bladder, through exhalation etc.   However, more often than not, patients tell me they feel energised.  I think that natural healing requires courage as we take responsibility for our own wellbeing but I also think it's very worth it. 

Will it Affect any Medication I am Taking?     

Biomagnetism is not a replacement for conventional medicine if you are taking any.  It complements other treatments and conventional medicine and will enhance your healing.  However, I do advise clients to tell their doctor that they are having treatment, especially so that any prescription medicines can be monitored over time and altered/ceased accordingly. Biomagnetism is not advisable for people who have had chemotherapy within the last year or those with heart pacemakers (it may run down the batteries).  You will be required to sign your notes to ensure you understand that this is a natural therapy and is not a replacement for advice from your own doctor.

I am Pregnant, can I Still Have Biomagnetism Treatments?   

Mums-to-be can be treated but magnets cannot be placed on the abdomen.  I personally prefer to give a mix of Biomagnetism and Reiki Healing to pregnant women and their babies.

Who Discovered Biomagnetic Pair Therapy?        

A Mexican doctor and scientist called Dr. Isaac Goiz Duran; a physiotherapist and physician. He discovered the Biomagnetic Pair while treating an HIV positive patient in 1988 - who he cured.  Since then he has discovered over 350 Biomagnetic Pairs to treat many different diseases.  Dr Goiz and his son, Moises, teach this therapy to others like me and they continue to research and develop this amazing science. Moises Goiz developed NeuroBiomagnetism.

What Can Biomagnetism Help With?

Biomagnetism is helpful for so many things on both an emotional and physical level because it helps to restore balance to the mind and body, here are some examples:

Chronic pain
Injury
Fybromyalgia
Lyme 
Intestinal problems
Hypertension
Mood disorders
Organ dysfunction
Back pain
Fertility
Allergies
Arthritis
Obesity
Addictions
And more....

Bodywork

 INTRODUCTION

Massage is a universal therapy that is practiced through many different modalities. Essentially, massage employs soft tissue manipulation to achieve physical (anatomical), functional (physiological), and psychological results.

Massage is a systemic therapy that improves blood lymph and general fluid circulation, bringing oxygen and nutrients to every single cell. Specific techniques help relieve muscle tension and pain; increase flexibility and mobility; regulate and improve the function of internal systems such as the endocrine and immune systems; and integrate mind and body.

HOLISTIC MASSAGE

Holistic massage is a therapeutic tool that can be used to re-establish a sense of homeostasis within the body, and equilibrium throughout the individual’s sense of self. The focus lies in the client as a ‘whole’ rather than the specific symptoms they may be presenting; and so considers environment, psychology, nutrition and other lifestyle elements to establish the cause of particular imbalances.

Holistic massage is based on Swedish massage techniques and incorporates essential oils to further facilitate therapeutic benefits such as invigoration or relaxation. Relaxation techniques, breath-work and visualisations may be used, according to whether the client and therapist feel this may be useful.

Holistic massage also incorporates lifestyle advice to help reduce negative effects and enhance the positive benefits of lifestyle choices.


MARMA MASSAGE

Marma massage promotes good blood flow by stimulating the marma points, thereby promoting physical and mental rehabilitation. Increasing blood flow through these neuro-muscular junctions helps tone the corresponding muscles, which in turn can clear away obstructions that delay information being communicated between the muscles, nerves and brain.
A Marma point is defined as an anatomical site where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. There are 107 of these vital points throughout the body and it is considered essential for health to ensure good blood flow throughout these neuro-muscular junctions. Similar with Acupuncture, marma points correspond to internal organs and systems of the body which react to manual stimulation.

Through centuries of practice it has been observed that the following symptoms can be alleviated through Marma massage: Nervousness and anxiety; Light headedness; Numbness; Metallic taste in the mouth, tingling in the fingertips and toes; Stress; Fatigue; Physical weakness and Muscular aches and pains. Stroke victims benefit from Marma massage because it helps the brain to ‘re-learn’ how to control and co-ordinate the muscles and nerves after illness or injury.

 Chiropractic

 Chiropractic literally means done by hand, and is the largest natural health profession in the world, after Allopathic Medicine and Dentistry.

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat a variety of neuromusculoskeletal conditions that effect general health and natural wellbeing, and are highly skilled in full spinal, and extremity manipulation, known as adjusting.

Chiropractors also use a corrective neuromuscular approach throughout the entire body, to support joint adjustments.

This begins with postural evaluation, specific key muscles, patterns of tension across muscular groups, and the nervous system, to evaluate how they work for each individual, either normally or with compensation, and dysfunction. Chiropractors also coach patients on how to improve their condition and prognosis, by taking self responsibility for their own health, with specific corrective physical exercises, hydration, nutrition, and life style choices.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle therapy, which involves the slow introduction of warm, filtered water into the colon via the rectum. The water is introduced at a very low and carefully controlled pressure. The water, combined with gentle abdominal massage, helps to soften faecal matter and hardened deposits so that they can be expelled naturally by your colon and piped away with the waste water. It is completely hygienic as all equipment is disposable and sterile. Also rest assured that your modesty is preserved at all times.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy: As this works by encouraging the natural function of the colon (as opposed to using suction – which is a common myth) it can aid in the functional rehabilitation of the colon. It can be useful in helping with conditions such as:
• Constipation
• diarrhoea
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Spastic Colon
• Atonic (Sluggish) Colon

Encouraging the elimination of lingering waste and intestinal gas can also help with other digestive problems like:
• Diverticulosis (not when inflamed)
• Bloating
• Flatulence
• Indigestion
• Candida
• Parasites

Colonics can also be beneficial to those with the following conditions, especially if they are linked to poor elimination or compromised gut function:
• Allergies
• Arthritis
• Asthma
• Halitosis (Bad breath)
• Multiple Sclerosis
Skin problems: eczema, acne, psoriasis

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a soothing and gentle type of bodywork that has its roots in osteopathy. It involves a very light touch of the therapist’s hands for both diagnosis and health benefits. Despite its gentle nature it gives opportunity to release chronic tension and blockages that may be held at a very deep level of the bodymind system. As the name indicates, Craniosacral therapy focuses its attention on bone structures, joints and membranes of the cranium (skull), the spine and the sacrum. These structures enclose the central nervous system, whose functioning craniosacral therapy aims to balance and harmonise in a way that leads to a state of natural homeostasis for all biological and mental functioning.

The craniosacral system inter-connects with every part of the body’s fascia, its muscles and nerves. It extends into every organ, the senses and affects the functioning of human consciousness in balancing ways. Hence Craniosacral therapy is a holistic form of bodywork that that both works well on its own and as part of a model of integrated medicine. 

It rebalances the musculoskeletal, immune, endocrine, nervous, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It has shown to be effective for a whole range of conditions that affect body and mind, including: 

Arthritis; asthma; autism; back pain; birth trauma; cerebral palsy; colic; depression; digestive problems; drug withdrawal; dyslexia; frozen shoulder; hormonal imbalances; hyperactivity; immune system disorders; insomnia; lethargy; menstrual pain, PMS; migraine; post-operative problems during and after pregnancy; reintegration after accidents; fall or injury; sciatica; sinusitis; spinal curvatures; sports injuries;; stress related illness incl. depression, anxiety, burn-out, insomnia and PTSD, trauma and accident, tinnitus and middle ear problems; TMJ (jaw) disorders; visual disturbances and whiplash injuries.

Craniosacral therapy is generally relaxing and pleasant, creating a sense of stillness, inner peace, incl. graceful meditativeness. The client may become aware of subtle bodily sensations and movement of life force energy; existing imbalances within the body may also become amplified before they resolve into sensations and feelings of release and well-being.

 Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is a classified “Power Therapy”; a relatively new dynamic that has emerged within the field of psychotherapy. Power Therapies are known by this term because they are reported to work rapidly and efficaciously.

EFT has been developed from the ancient Chinese meridian energy system, and is often referred to “emotional acupuncture” without the needles.

EFT works on the principle that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body’s energy system. These disruptions or blockages are cleared by applying tapping movements on the end of the body’s energy meridians, while thinking of the issue that intends to be resolved.

The combination of physical stimulation and intentional thought sends pulses of energy to rebalance the body’s energy system in relation to those specific issues.

EFT works to shift energy in order to reroute the brain’s conditioned negative response to a particular issue. The therapy is based on the theoretical understanding that the body is a dynamic “energy configuration”, where thoughts, emotions and memories are interrelated in an information feedback system with our subjective and physical experiences.

The energetic intervention of stimulating meridian points, helps influence negative responses and limiting thoughts and beliefs, which get in the way of success, health, happiness and inner peace.

EFT is a self help tool that you can apply to all areas of your life. The therapy has had effective use in helping with the following conditions: Pain, Eating disorders, PTSD, Anorexia/Bulimia, Abuse, Addictions, Depression, Weight loss, Dyslexia, OCD, Carpal Tunnel , Blood pressure, Anger, Children's issues, ADD-ADH, Diabetes, Allergies, Fears/phobias, Headaches, Claustrophobia, Panic/Anxiety, Agoraphobia, Asthma, Fear of Flying, Trauma.

 Endometriosis and Fertility

Endometriosis can be a distressing disease affecting women's health. It can cause the most excruciating pain, and in some women it appears to trigger fertility or infertility problems. Endometriosis is systemic; it affects every part of the body, not just the gynecological organs.
People suffering with this disease often experience a general sense of feeling unwell, dreadful fatigue, bloating, bouts of constipation or diarrhea, abdominal pain and bladder problems. Nutritional medicine may help to improve ova and sperm quality, as well as improve cell metabolism so that all body systems can effectively function with the right nutrients. Health is interconnected, and depends on the efficient functioning of every aspect of the organism to achieve optimum potential.

The body wants to be well all the time and our body homeostasis pathways are continually working towards maintaining a balance

Nutritional medicine for Endometriosis is based on research that looks at the link between disorder of the reproductive/endocrine and immune systems and sub clinical nutritional deficiencies. Nutritional medicine works with the body biochemistry to restore quality of life and homeostasis, through eating a choice of nutritious foods and judicious use of supplements in the short term. Through using this method, pain may be reduced and fertility restored.

 Functional medicine

Functional medicine uses a holistic systems-orientated approach to address the underlying causes of a disease by examining the effects of genetic and environmental interaction on disease etiology.  Functional medicine holds that genetic expression is inhibited or facilitated by environmental factors, and can be altered with changes in one’s environment.

Functional medicine employs a patient-centred focus, where the practitioner and the patient engage in a therapeutic relationship, which documents the timeline of a patient’s illness and wellness history.  A functional medicine specialist integrates genetic, environmental, social, mental and emotional factors that affect the health of individuals over the course of their lifecycle.  Similar to Ayurveda and Chinese medicine philosophies, functional medicine focuses on the individual as a whole rather than as reduced to a set of symptoms to be assessed in isolation. Functional medicine, is therefore, especially beneficial for examining the underlying causes of chronic illnesses such as autoimmune disorder, allergies and food intolerances, and other bacterial or parasitic and viral infections.

 Healing

Healing involves the channeling of universal energy through the hands of the practitioner to the recipient. Healing is a natural, non-invasive holistic approach that has the intention of promoting self healing, to bring a sense of well being and peace to the recipient. Healing is carried out in the presence of the client and may involve the laying of hands on the body, or the hands may be held off the body. Healing does not involve massage or manipulation.
Healing is not associated with any particular denomination or belief system. There are various branches of healing including: “Spiritual Healing”, “Reiki Healing” and various forms of “Energy Healing”. All the therapies aim to utilise one’s own resources to restore balance: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Healing can be used as a preventative measure or as a complementary therapy in any healing process.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy, used in over 80 countries, by over 300 million patients, integrated in the national health services in other EU countries such as France Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and taught at universities all over the world.
 
Homeopathy, discovered by the german doctor Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), is a medicine which differs from conventional medicine in two main aspects: first, the effects on the body of the selected medicine in a pure state are almost the same to those caused by the condition (so called “similla similibus curentur”, and also Homeo; same and -pathy; disease), and second, the way the medicine is prepared (most of the remedies are high diluted substances from plant, mineral or animal origin).
 
“Similla similibus curentur” (latin) “The same cures the same.” (Hypocrates 460 - 370 B.C.), which means that the patient’s symptoms are approached with a high diluted substance which in pure state would cause very similar symptoms. 

The remedies are prepared in the same way since the times of Hahnemann’s. The procedure of diluting the chemically active principle is what rises skepticism in some minds, because it seems that no active solutes remain upon a 12C potency (1/1024). However, in 2009, Nobel Prize laureate Luc Montagnier’s article proving that high dilution are effective, was published in the prestigious journal Interdisciplinary Sciences.


In addition, the ever increasing research in this field leaves now little doubt about the efficiency of Homeopathy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) entails breathing 97% oxygen whilst lying in a pressurised chamber.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is commonly used for overall health and wellness including anti-ageing and beauty, sports endurance and recovery, improving energy levels and in the treatment and management of chronic conditions and disease. It is also used by professional sports clubs and leading plastic surgeons to expedite healing after a surgery or injury and it can be a great cure for jet lag and hangovers!

Our bodies depend on oxygen for survival. A lack of oxygen can decrease blood flow, damage tissue, cause premature ageing, cause the hair to thin, and even affect the memory. When we age, our cells are starved of nutrients, but supplying oxygen to our cells can provide health, energy, and vitality. Most illness and injuries occur and linger in the tissue level, within the cells themselves. In cases of non-healing wounds, strokes or problems with circulation, not enough oxygen can reach the affected area and as a result, natural healing does not happen. HBOT solves this problem by providing an increase in oxygen naturally.

By breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, lungs gather up to 3x more oxygen and blood absorbs up to 10x usual oxygen thus significantly increasing oxygen uptake from tissues & cells.

• General Health and Wellness:

Hyperbaric Oxygen is used by celebrities, sports professionals or as part of a detox protocol to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood. Oxygen promotes general health and wellness, increases energy, boosts the immune system, helps with pain relief (such as swollen joints and muscle pain), stress and regulating sleep patterns. It also improves mental function, helping with depression, anxiety, stress and concentration. It can be a helpful cure for jet lag and hangovers with its restorative, relaxing and rejuvenating effect.

• Sports Endurance and Recovery:

Hyperbaric Oxygen is most commonly known for its use in athletic performance and injury recovery from competitive athletes to gym enthusiasts. Oxygen speeds up the healing of injuries from recovering after a work out to traumas and fractures, by up to 50%, and helps with pain relief.

An increase of oxygen in the blood stream, tissues and cells also improves athletic performance and sports endurance; sports professionals use hyperbaric oxygen to give them a competitive edge.

• Anti-ageing and Beauty:

Hyperbaric oxygen has been endorsed by the British Board of Anti-aging and Integrative Medicine for its ability to enhance beauty and for its anti-ageing properties. It stimulates the production of collagen, improves skin elasticity, eliminates toxins and can help repair damaged skin. It can also promote healthy hair growth and help with weight loss, cellulite, wrinkles, acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Leading aesthetic doctors in London’s medical district refer patients to The Wellness Lab for hyperbaric oxygen as an adjunctive therapy to speed up recovery time following a cosmetic treatment. It can improve bruising and swelling after aesthetic procedures such as lasers, chemical peels, facelifts and liposuction and enhance hair growth following a transplant.

• Chronic Conditions:

The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen has been well established in the management and/ or treatment of a number of chronic conditions and diseases and there are ongoing studies to identify more applications.

 Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a natural and powerful therapy that is able to create effective change for resolving a variety of problems such as phobias, panic attacks, obsessive behavior, trauma, emotional concerns, certain allergies, and skin problems, lack of motivation, smoking and weight control.

Hypnotherapy involves teaching clients how to access a state of calm where they remain totally in control, but are able to dip into a world of complete physical and emotional relaxation.

At this point positive suggestions, which can be agreed beforehand, are given. These work on the subconscious mind and help steer towards a chosen solution by creating inner motivation to affect a change. The subconscious mind also controls much of the body’s functioning and welfare, therefore it is possible to “re-programme” body systems back towards health.

Hypnotherapy is totally safe and cannot be used to force any change against someone’s wishes. It will only create the effect that the person undergoing hypnosis allows it to have. Whilst this protects each individual, it also means that the desired outcome has to totally match the client’s needs in order to be fully accessed. Part of the process, therefore, is to establish appropriate and realistic goals prior to embarking on a course of solutions.

Once this has been decided, the hypnotherapist will work out with the client the various stages that make up the course of therapy. This will give an indication of the progress expected.

Hypnotherapists may often combine their therapy with other therapeutic or counselling skills in order to give a more rounded approach. Some cases, such as stopping smoking, may only require a few sessions while more deeply rooted concerns will take longer.

Hypnotherapy is a proven and lasting tool for change and leaves the client with a number of beneficial techniques to empower them in other areas of their life.

 Infusion Therapy and Vitamin Injections

Infusion therapy is an important component of natural medicine and invaluable to easily and profoundly restore health and vitality, especially in chronic diseases, long standing nutrient deficiencies and digestive and absorption problems. It involves using cocktails containing vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients that get transfused straight into the vein (used as a drip). The great advantage of this therapy is that it bypasses the whole digestive tract, which often has a compromised absorption ability and can cause multiple nutritional deficiencies. The infused nutrients go directly into the blood stream, where they provide nourishment to every cell in the body. Very often, in chronic and depleted conditions, high blood levels of key nutrients are required (for example vitamin C) in order for the immune system or other organs in the body to respond in the way needed to overcome certain conditions and to provide the system with the dose of nutrients required to start the healing process. Even if the digestive system functions perfectly, there is a limit to the oral absorption for every nutrient, beyond which, even if taking higher doses orally, this will just be excreted but will not lead to a further increase in absorption. For example, if infusing 7.5g of vitamin C this will give blood levels 10 times as high than supplementing orally with 15g throughout the day. Infusion therapy is a unique, fast and efficient way to give the whole body a boost and raise vitality, immunity and organ function safely and profoundly.

The infusion cocktail can be tailor made according to the patient’s needs, it can contain:

Vitamins, minerals and trace elements (for example vitamin C, Zinc and Selenium for the immune system, potassium and magnesium to support heart function)

Homeopathic remedies to support organ functions and to improve conditions (for example to support nervous system, heart function, liver detox or treat allergies)

Amino acids as vital building blocks for weakness and chronic exhaustion, absorption problems, to raise energy and for athletes to help with muscle building and improve sports performance

Alkalising remedies to help to reduce systemic inflammation, reduce high acidity levels which are usually present in chronic conditions with inflammation

High dose antioxidants like curcumin and lipoic acid to improve cellular function and reduce oxidative stress, which is raised in chronic and inflammatory conditions and with degenerative diseases

Amino acids and precursors for the nervous system to improve function, re-balance and calm – also offering a ‘NERVOUS SYSTEM RE-SET’ as injection: effectively re-balancing the overactivated sympathetic nervous system (fight-and-flight-mode) and the underfunctioning parasympathetic nervous system (calming, relaxing, regenerating, repairing). Has an immediate de-stress effect and helps to shift the nervous system back into balance and also addresses the endocrine imbalance (adrenal burn-out, thyroid problems etc).

Also using infusion cocktails according to the CELL SYMBIOSIS THERAPY by Dr Kremer, which directly targets mitochondrial dysfunction, which often underlies chronic conditions like CSF, autoimmune diseases, allergies, hormonal imbalances, cancer etc.

 MAOW (The Martial Art of Wellness) & Qigong / Energy Healing

Wellness is a natural law of science. Its presence can be felt through the offerings of replenishment by the bodies of natural forces that surround us. The sun, the moon, the forests, oceans, and earth cleverly provide the building blocks of our regeneration through design of their position and composition. Using the science of our proper body positions and directions, we can directly connect to these nourishing forces and unlock a new cycle of wellness. 

Sifu Matthew’s MAOW™ (Martial Arts of Wellness) teaches you directly how to influence your internal healing and power through a series of Martial Arts positions, movements, and focused intentions that directly affect the electro-chemical cycles of your body and cells. Each unique position is designed to connect the electrical fields that strengthen and heal imbalances in the organs, tissues, cells, nerves, bones, and blood. They will create a shift in your programming through new force cycles provided by that direction in relation to your position. They basically feed your body a form of direct and natural medicine, and educate your brain to take a new healing position around stress and imbalance.
 
MAOW™and Sifu Matthew are currently being studied at an esteemed US university research institute for its ability to create rapid healing.

 Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system is a secondary circulatory system situated just beneath the skin.

During a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLDM) gentle rhythmic movements are used to stimulate lymph vessels and send lymph to nodes to be drained away. The massage is gentle and extremely relaxing.

MLDM relaxes the sympathetic nervous system whilst simultaneously enhancing the productivity of the immune system. It also helps facilitate removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria and foreign substances from tissue via the lymph vessels and venous capillaries.

Conditions that can benefit from MLDM are allergies, pre/post operative conditions, particularly where the lymph vessels have been removed, post cosmetic surgery, cellulite, digestive problems and also to help sedantary lifestyles.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a physical treatment used is to treat musculoskeletal pain, injuries and disabilities. It is used by many practitioners and therapists such as physiotherapists, osteopaths, sports therapists and chiropractors. It primarily involves joint mobilisation, kneading, manipulation of the muscles and joints.

 

Manual therapy is a highly specialised form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. Practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints to decrease pain caused by muscle spasm or tension and joint dysfunction. Some areas of the body which are commonly treated through different forms of manual therapy include the back and all parts of the spine, shoulders, wrists, feet, ankles, knees, and hips.

 

How does it work?

 

As a group, manual therapy techniques are aimed at relaxing tense muscles and restricted joints in order to decrease pain and improve mobility. The following manual movement techniques are used:

 

  • Soft tissue work including massage where pressure is applied to the soft tissues of the body such as the muscles. This pressure helps to relax muscles, increase blood circulation, break up scar tissue and ease pain.

  • Mobilisation/Manipulation using measured movements of varying speeds (slow to fast), force (gentle to strong) and distances – also called amplitude to twist, pull or push bones and joints into position. This also helps loosen tight tissues in as well as around a joint to restore flexibility and proper alignment.

 

Manual therapy can include myofascial release with hands or tools, joint mobilisation or manipulation, massage or manual traction. This works by restoring mobility to joints with limited range of motion and by depleting muscle tension. This is done by pressure being applied to the joints, muscles or nerves, resulting in the patient being able to return to their normal range of motion and biomechanics without feeling any pain.

 

Mobilising muscle fibres and tissues is essential especially after injury as this avoids potential scar tissues and contractures. Whenever tensions or spasms are released on muscles care must be taken to assess for joint instability as the tightness may be in response to joint instability. Releasing the muscle too erratically could lead to injury reoccurrence. Obtaining proper alignment and maintaining functional range of motion during the recovery phase can decrease the duration of overall rehabilitation.

 

What are the benefits?

 

Some benefits of manual therapy include:

 

  • Decreased pain.

  • Increased performance.

  • Increased range of motion.

  • Restored biomechanics.

 Meditation

The essence of meditation is to find an anchor of peace and calm within. It is self evident that nothing in our life remains permanent – we need to find a private oasis of peace and calm inside which is untouched by constant change.

Western Science has been focused on understanding our outer world through the medium of the five senses. The Ancient Yogis took a different approach; they wanted to understand their inner world - our mind and consciousness. By sitting still they were able to calm the mind and access a deep inner peace. Like scientists, they were able to develop “scientific laws/techniques” of how this peace could be accessed, thus the ancient science of meditation was created. Thousands of years later, Western scientists are able to quantify and measure many of the physiological, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of the ancient yogis “inner science”.

In the past, Meditation was practiced in the high peaks of the Himalayas, separated from the material world. This is now not the case, meditation techniques can be practiced in combination with your daily life.

The practice of meditation facilitates value of self, to help one find; balance, love, happiness and peace within. Meditation focuses on the potential and richness of our own resources, recognizing that whilst material possessions can be enjoyed, they are not to be valued as the sole source of our happiness.

Meditation is not just about words, theories or concepts; but a practical set of techniques which show one how to access a deep inner peace within. The practice of meditation can take as little as five minutes a day or much longer, it is a matter of personal preference.

Lastly, meditation is beneficial for everyone. Our courses are non-denominational and non-religious; enabling each person to choose a course that resonates with their particular lifestyle, whatever their philosophical orientation.

We offer group or private classes in three Meditation courses:
Spiritual Meditation
Simply Meditation
Meditation for work

 Mindfulness

A mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

Professor Mark Williams, former director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, says that mindfulness means knowing directly what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment.

"It's easy to stop noticing the world around us. It's also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling and to end up living 'in our heads' – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour," he says.

"An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment. That might be something as simple as the feel of a banister as we walk upstairs.

"Another important part of mindfulness is an awareness of our thoughts and feelings as they happen moment to moment.
"It's about allowing ourselves to see the present moment clearly. When we do that, it can positively change the way we see ourselves and our lives."

 Musculoskeletal

The Musculoskeletal system provides structure, protection, balance and movement to the human body. Good alignment and proper functioning promotes general physical and mental wellbeing, and aids self awareness so as to encourage empowerment and ownership of health.

Connective tissue is everywhere in the human body. It is a complex matrix that supports, contains and connects cells in different forms such as cartilage, bone, muscles, lymph, blood, ligaments, tendons and fascia.

Musculoskeletal and Bodywork practitioners are facilitators of normalising structural and mechanical health by benefiting the connective tissue of the body. Connective tissue in general can be considered a fluid structure, responsive to touch and space, that has the potential for transformation.

 Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a system of primary health care that works with the individual’s efforts and resources towards achieving optimal expression of homeostasis on a physiological, physical, mental and emotional level; recognising that all these aspects of health are interconnected. Therefore lifestyle, environment, relationships and diet are all taken into consideration to pin point the root cause of pre-dispositions within the body.

The healing power of Nature and its ability to harness the self-healing mechanisms of the body is a defining principle in Naturopathy. This healing power, known as vital force or chi (qi), is considered to be the driving energy that exists within all living organisms, Nature and the Universe itself. When the vital force is appropriately restored to the individual, the body has the opportunity to heal itself.

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP, is a means of interpersonal communication that offers an alternative model to psychotherapy. It is primarily concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences underlying them.

This therapeutic technique is often referred to as 'the psychology of excellence', in accordance with the theoretical understanding that the world is perceived in terms of excellence; where individuals can be supported in creating their own choice and flexibility.
NLP is based on the subjective study of language, communication and personal change, and draws upon the work of Gestalt, family systems therapy and clinical hypnosis.

Through the employment of specific strategies and techniques, NLP facilitates the process of replicating excellence, and understanding of how individuals organise their thinking, feelings, language and behavior to produce results.

The theory of NLP is based on three layers of understanding:

Neuro: establishing our individual mental map of the world

Linguistic: how we each assign personal meaning to the information

Programming: our behavioral response to the former.

NLP techniques are often utilised to instigate change and enhance personal growth, development and performance.

NLP can be a very useful tool in helping with behavioural responses to issues such as: abnormal eating patterns, panic attacks, shyness, depression, addictions, phobias, stress and emotional problems.

 Nutri Energetic System (NES Health)

For chronic or acute disease,  Nutri energetic system (NES Health)   Utilising a hand-held device, levels of immunity, allergies and stress responses are detected. By interpreting on screen indicators (which highlight biochemical reactions to previous infections), most nutritional intake, environmental and chemical toxins are examined. This allows Christina to advise just how well the immune system is performing. Enabling a clearer insight into the cause beneath the symptoms thus allows the focus of the treatment to be more specific.  

The NES miHealth is a powerful hand-held biofeedback device that is non-invasive and effective for reducing stress, releasing and re-educating energy flow, muscles, nerves, organs and area's of the body. As stress is released, energy can flow properly and the body's own innate intelligence starts to heal itself.

Osteopathy 

Osteopathy is a treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.

It works with the structure and function of the body and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. It considers all aspects of a patient’s life, examines various body systems to assess a patient’s general health and identify any damage, strains or tensions causing the symptoms.

Osteopathy places great emphasis on the body’s structural integrity, recognising that much of the pain and disability that we suffer can be attributed to abnormalities in the body’s function and not necessarily damage caused by injury or disease.

How does it work?

The osteopathic philosophy embraces the idea of the unity of structure and function through four main principles.

  • The body is a unit, and the person represents a combination of body, mind and spirit.

  • The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance.

  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.

  • Rational treatment is based on an understanding of these principles: body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.

 

What are the Benefits?

  • Removes the underlying cause of pain

  • Reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints

  • Increases the range of motions in the joints

  • Treats spinal problems resulting from poor posture or spinal disc injuries

  • Relieves chronic pain through non-invasive treatment

  • Decreases the stress on the joints

  • Improves blood circulation

  • Relieves tension and migraine headaches

  • Helps the body to adapt to structural changes during pregnancy

 Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy has been a popular form of therapy since the end of the 19. Century and has its origin in Germany. It was first used for its strong and effective antimicrobial properties and for disinfection of drinking water as well as helping people suffering with cholera and typhus.
These days it is used by thousands of doctors and therapists in clinics and hospitals worldwide for its remarkable, unmatched healing properties. Multiple studies that have been conducted show it has far greater benefits than oxygen therapy and its varied application forms make it a sophisticated, powerful and very effective therapy.
 
The key benefits of ozone therapy are:
Marked reduction of inflammation and pain relief
Increasing circulation (localised and systemic effect)
Improving of wound healing and ulcerations (tremendous results in healing open wounds – for example in diabetic patients with ‘open legs’ or in eczema/psoriasis etc)
Strong anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-parasite and anti-bacterial properties. (has been used successfully to kill the ebola virus etc)
Has immune boosting and immune regulatory effects (in auto-immune conditions etc)
Boosts the metabolism, raises metabolic rate, effective for weight loss (has strong systemic effect but can also be used for localised fat deposits)
Improves cellular respiration and therefore has a direct positive effect on cell repair/regeneration
Increases oxygen content in blood and oxygenation of tissues/cells, which has rejuvenating effect
Detoxification
Has anti-cancer, cell-protective properties
Deep regulatory stimulus for the whole metabolism and nervous/endocrine system
 
Indications:
Allergies, hayfever
Intestinal disorders: IBS, constipation, dysbiosis – overgrowth of wrong microflora, IBD – Chron’s and Ulcerative colitis
Angina pectoris and heart conditions
Circulatory problems, high blood pressure
Arthritis
Low immunity, frequent infections, autoimmune conditions
‘open leg’, diabetic leg, skin ulcerations, skin infections or other skin conditions
Hairloss and obesity
Chronic viral infections, like Hepatitis and Herpes etc.
Systemic candidiasis in the digestive system (bloating, diarrhea/constipation, cramping) or trush
Injuries, especially infected wounds and slow healing wounds


Ozone therapy can be used to benefit the blood (ozone and blood is mixed and re-infused), as rectal or vaginal insufflation, as injection into the muscle or applied to the skin for any inflammatory conditions and to stimulate self-healing.

Personal Development

Personal development is the ongoing process of understanding and developing oneself in order to achieve one’s fullest potential. It is a vital part in a person’s growth, success and happiness. It is the basis of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual health.

Many pursue “things” with the assumption that when you have enough stuff, you will be happy. You do not have to look too far to find the fault in this theory.  When you choose to invest in yourself and learn who you are and what you want, it's at that point you begin to feel more passionate about the direction your life is taking. The pursuit of purpose and individual achievement is the greatest gift you can give yourself. This growth through learning adds motivation and a sense of excitement to your life.

Personal development provides you with both the incentive and the means to become the best possible version of yourself, expanding your frame of reference; making you aware of the possibilities and opportunities that are available.  The work you do on yourself not only benefits you but all those around you. 

Personal development is forward looking. It teaches you how to create a life that you want, from this moment. It can be used to help with: depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, eating disorders, bereavement, divorce, trauma. This work is for those who feel “stuck", “lost” or a “failure.

 Psychotherapy

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.

Psychotherapy is a process that seeks to help the person gain an increased capacity for choice, through which the individual becomes more autonomous and self determined.

Psychotherapy is a joint venture between the client and the therapist. Success factors rely on the quality of the relationship established between both the client and the therapist, and the quality of their motivation and commitment to change.

It is an effective resource that can be used to support an individual through difficult and traumatic experiences; whilst also providing richness to our lives by offering the opportunity to explore your motivations and sense of ‘self’.

There are many different approaches in Psychotherapy, with each psychotherapist practicing their own individual style. The methodology can be combined with therapeutic approaches such as ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), to create an all encompassing intervention.

It is useful for a wide range of issues, which may be long-standing or which may have surfaced more recently in response to a traumatic life event.

Psychotherapy can be used to help with: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Relationship and sexual problems, Child-related issues, Eating disorders and substance misuse, Bereavement and loss, Trauma and abuse, Self-harm and Physical conditions.

Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the oldest forms of natural medicine that uses the feet to diagnose and relieve physiological imbalances, restoring general health and well being.

In reflexology every organ, gland and structure in the body can be mapped out on the soles of the feet or the palms of the hands. These specific areas are known as reflex points, and when stimulated with applied pressure techniques, the reflex is able to affect its corresponding organ, gland or structure, restoring an uninhibited flow of energy to optimise  self-healing.

General benefits of reflexology include:

Stimulation of the body’s self-healing mechanism by encouraging optimum functioning of all physiological systems
Stimulation of the thousands of nerve ending in the feet which in turn brings awareness to the composition and balance of the entire musculoskeletal system, as the feet affect the nature of our structure
Reducing tension by relaxing the neuro-musculo-skeletal system.
Stimulation of blood flow, helping to clear away accumulated waste products and toxins. Some waste products appear in the form of crystals made up of uric acid and calcium.

These feel like grains of sugar or sand under the skin and usually accumulate around the joints. By working on them, they can be broken down, carried away in the blood and flushed out of the system.

Reflexology can be helpful in a wide range of conditions including: migraine, back pain, sinus problems, menstrual problems and kidney disorders.

Rolfing Structural Integration

Rolfing is a method of aligning posture by systematically working with the myofascial system over a course sessions called the Rolfing Series. Each session deals with a specific goal of releasing tension, freeing connective tissue adhesions and differentiating and rebalancing important muscle groups in specific areas. For example Session 1 works on the feet, Session 6 on the back of the body, Session 7 on the neck. The overall effect is to improve posture, reduce physical discomfort and create greater ease of movement.

 Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese method of bodywork-sharing its principles with Chinese medicine-which uses the power of touch and pressure to adjust the body’s physical structure, and harness effective energy flow (known as “Qi”). Optimum function of the structural system and Qi, supports individuals to greater health and wellbeing. Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”, and the therapy comprises of a variety of techniques including gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians, and dynamic rotations and stretches, to establish appropriate physical alignment and balance.

Shiatsu works upon the body’s energy or “Qi”, using a network of associated pathways known as meridians, which relate to our internal organs, emotions and mind-body harmony. By facilitating and improving the quality and flow of Qi, Shiatsu aims to achieve improved general health and wellbeing.

Shiatsu is a highly dynamic form of therapy that is both diagnostic and healing in its approach; and is a very effective form of preventative medicine. The individual may want to receive Shiatsu for general health maintenance or specifically to aid a physical, mental or emotional healing process. Recommended sessions therefore pertain to the individual’s reasons for seeking Shiatsu therapy.
Common conditions helped by Shiatsu include: asthmatic symptoms; back pain; depression; digestive problems; headaches, migraines; joint pain and reduced mobility; sports injuries; stress; whiplash injuries and neck stiffness.

Shiatsu is performed at floor level on a padded mat or futon, although it is possible to receive Shiatsu sitting on a chair if you are unable to lie down. The client remains fully clothed throughout the session.

 Skincare

Skin is a dynamic, changeable structure that interacts with, and reflects every part of our being - physical, mental and emotional - and our relationship with the external environment.

Good skin care is rooted in lifestyle choices and awareness of one's Health. Being aware of how you breathe can make the difference between a glowing and dull complexion. Choosing to have less sugar in your diet can prevent your skin prematurely aging.

Being conscious of what effects your skin empowers you to take control of the way your skin looks and feels. Choosing natural products that are ethically farmed can enhance the skin's complexion to look more supple, radiant and fresh. And regular sessions are fantastic for boosting skin health and appearance, and working therapeutically with specific conditions. However, the key to healthy skin is our inherent ability to continuously regenerate and create Health from moment to moment. Within this process lies the potential to optimize how our skin looks and feels.

Our physiology is a synergetic system of communication that works as a whole to produce who we are as individuals. The circulatory, respiratory, digestive, immune and lymphatic system all need each other to perform effectively. And all of these systems play an integral role in the health of our skin.

Understanding why these systems affect your skin; and how they are interconnected set the primary foundations for sustainable skin care.

Nutrition is fundamental to the health of our skin. When we feed ourselves, we feed our skin. Like every organ in our body, skin needs vital nutrients so that it can grow and function properly. Skin tone, structure, clarity and radiance are all influenced by the foods we eat.

It is not only food that feeds our skin. Our thoughts and emotions feed our skin too. A calm mind and controlled emotions have an incredible effect at reducing stress; which is a prime factor in premature aging, and dull lifeless skin.

PRP and PRF is made from whole blood and contains a concentration of platelets, fibrin (PRF) and over 1000 biologically active proteins, enzymes, growth factors and other components important for tissue healing and repair.

 Sports Massage

Despite the name, Sports Massage is not just for those who exercise or athletes.

It is a form of deep tissue massage that can be used to reduce pain, improve posture, increase function and mobility of your joints, as well as help with mood and relaxation. It is also widely used in the treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

It also promotes lymph drainage and can help to speed up the healing process.

Rather than being a gentle relaxing massage, sports massage therapy is functional and works on the problems identified by the client and the therapist, to achieve positive results and outcomes.

Sports massage therapy can also be used pre and post event for those participating in sporting events, as well as used to maintain and improve posture, flexibility and mobility for every day activities.

 Systematic Kinesiology

Systematic Kinesiology was developed by Brian Butler based from the original creation of Applied Kinesiology of Dr. Goodheart. The International College of Applied Kinesiology was established and twelve doctors worked on the research into muscle testing. Systematic Kinesiology is a totally holistic therapy using the body's bio-feedback mechanism through muscle testing to gain information about the client.

Systematic Kinesiologists are able to help clients much more effectively if each person commits to taking personal responsibility and improving their own health regime. Systematic

Kinesiologists offer a safe, private and personal service, attuned to your individual needs.
The basic tool within Kinesiology is the muscle test. The Systematic Kinesiologist monitors a client’s ability to hold their muscle against light pressure and looks for changes in their muscle strength. Each muscle is related to an energy pathway called a Meridian and each meridian is associated with an organ. For instance, if a client comes with digestive issues, Systematic Kinesiologist will be testing the muscles that are associated with the stomach, small intestine and large intestine meridian, to assess the possible underlying core issues. It’s more likely that the body will reveal itself, pointing to where the most problematic area is through the muscle testing.

There are four factors - chemical, emotional, structural and energetic stress, which can create an energy imbalance. The Systematic Kinesiologist will further access these factors and if any of them are affecting the circuit of energy, the muscle test will feel weak or spongy. Each time a relevant factor is introduced the muscle response changes, similar to a switch. Imagine a strong muscle as being “ON”, if a food which the client suspects they are intolerant to, is placed within the electromagnetic field of the body and that causes the muscle to go weak, this indicates that the food is causing an energy imbalance.

Once the problem area is highlighted, you will be supported with Kinesiology techniques such as nutritional recommendations, lifestyle changes, massaging specific points & energy reflexes, working with related emotional stresses and non-invasive structural corrections to guide you to be balanced holistically which enhances your health and well-being.

The number of Kinesiology sessions varies on the person. Generally, a client can experience improvement within the first three to six appointments, although this may take longer, depending on the severity of physical or emotional problems. Once optimum health has been attained, regular appointments keep the body balanced and prevent further ill health.

During your Kinesiology appointment, you will be given a personalised programme of nutritional supplements to promote your health. These will be charged separately.

 Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is imbued with the spirit of Chinese civilisation and culture. Fundamental theories of TCM include those of Qi, Yin Yang, the five elements, zang fu, the four diagnostic methods and syndrome differentiation systems.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views symptoms as a manifestation of imbalance within the whole body’s system, rather than attributing it to a malfunction of one of its parts. A healthy body is well balanced between the opposite energies of Yin and Yang.

Illnesses that are characterised by weakness, lethargy and coldness are more Yin in nature, whilst those that manifest heat and over activity are considered to be Yang in their essence.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine therapy uses mainly vegetable, mineral and traditionally, some animal products, with known healing properties combined in a formula, to rectify the over activity or under activity of yin and yang, and to help restore the body to its normal physiological functioning. Chinese herbs are traditionally made up into teas or decoctions and are uniquely formulated to match the needs of the client.

Tui-Na

Tui-Na is a form of hands on therapy that has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The therapist uses a number of specialised hand techniques, pressing on key meridians and points on the surface of the body to promote the body’s own natural healing process. Tui-Na aims to regulate the functions of internal organs, harmonise the circulation of Qi and blood, encourage efficient metabolism and help the recovery of injured muscles, tendons, bones and joints by stimulating these specific points. Clinically, Tui-Na is highly effective for a wide range of common ailments and conditions, including: Stiff neck and shoulders, Chronic lumbar muscle strain , Slipped disc, Sciatica, Frozen shoulder, Repetitive Strain Injuries, Tennis elbow , Facial paralysis (Bell’s Palsy), Semi-paralysis after stroke, Rheumatic Arthritis, Insomnia, Headache, Hypertension, Chronic gastritis, Constipation , Painful menstrual period, Asthma, Children conditions and Sports injuries.

Vitamin B12 Injections

Vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies these days. The often compromised digestive system, especially low stomach acid production greatly reduce the absorption of this important vitamin, also increased demands (highly stressful lifestyle etc.) and lower amounts in foods due to farming and food processing all contribute to a lack of vitamin B12.
The vitamin is having many essential functions. It is necessary for the production of DNA in cells, for cell growth (children, athletes – muscle growth etc.) and it is crucial for healthy nervous system function and energy production. It acts as a Neuro-protective and will help with low energy and mood during chronic illness or generally when feeling weak and run-down. The vitamin injection helps to boost immune function and is especially useful when going through stressful periods in life.
The injection is administered into the muscle of the upper arm.

At each session you will learn how to:

• Stop snacking between meals
• Boost your self-confidence
• Stop over-eating when you know you are full
• Teach you to avoid temptation in supermarkets and at social occasions
• Stop those endless cravings
• Resolve your limiting beliefs that interfere with weight loss

• Overcome your resistance to exercise and increase your motivation to exercise
• Stop feeling so frustrated and impatient when the weight isn't coming off, even though you are doing all the right things

Sanguinum Weight Loss

Sanguinum is a medical weight loss system that directly affects your metabolism and encourages weight loss in a safe, healthy manner that is long-lasting and efficient.
It is also effective for people that have tried many different diets over the years without much success, women that are struggling with their weight after pregnancies or due to other hormonal changes (menopause etc), people that have put on excess weight after they quit smoking, or people who are taking medications that triggered weight gain. Usually with age most people notice it is harder to shift weight- much easier to put on a couple of pounds and so much harder, if not impossible, to lose that weight again.
The reason why in these situations it is so much harder to lose weight, is because the metabolic rate has slowed down. Even regular exercise is not enough, in most cases, to speed up the metabolism efficiently enough, so that a loss of excess weight is possible again. Most diets are actually doing more harm than good, as they are one of the most effective ways to slow down your metabolism even further - exactly what you do not want! That is also why most people find they gain weight again much quicker after they have 'successfully' lost some pounds during a diet - the well known 'yo-yo' - effect. Also, to their dismay, despite the struggle and starving themselves during various diet programs, usually the pounds that are lost are only water and muscle mass and not much fat. While their body will quickly re-gain fat mass once the diet is over, leaving them worse off than before they started the diet in the first place!
Sanguinum is different. This revolutionary weight loss program works by increasing your metabolic rate while following a healthy, wholesome eating plan - there is no starving yourself or feeling hungry!
There is continuous and on-going assistance and support to answer any questions or deal with problems you may have, so you are never on your own during the whole program. The weight is constantly monitored throughout the program with a state-of-the-art body composition analyser. This allows to exactly specify whether you lose fat, water or muscle mass. With Sanguinum you will mainly lose fat while the muscle mass remains constant, which is opposite to most other diet programs. A stable muscle mass will enable you to keep your weight down after finishing the course and prevent quick weight gain as normally experienced when finishing other diets.
During the Sanguinum weight loss program you will experience a natural detox process, which will leave you feeling revitalised, with much more energy and your well-being will be improved on many levels. A great number of people who underwent the Sanguinum program state that they feel better, happier and more energetic than they have felt for years!
The Sanguinum program will normalise your blood sugar levels, so you will not experience sudden hunger pangs during the course and also afterwards. Your body will learn to crave healthy, nutritious foods again while you will experience a natural aversion to empty, unhealthy foods, your taste buds will become sensitive again and you will be able to fully appreciate nutritious foods, while your metabolic rate will be raised during the course and will also stay higher than before after finishing of the course. This will help to go about your normal life while keeping your weight stable, you will feel lighter, healthier and happier with your new dream figure and improved well-being.

Yoga refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is associated with meditative practices in the east. The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj", meaning union or to unite. Yoga is thought to have originated in 3300BC in the Indus Valley. Ancient Vedic texts have been found in the region from this date, depicting figures in positions resembling a common yoga or meditation pose, showing "a form of ritual discipline", suggesting a precursor of yoga.
