    Acupuncture for pain relief

    Acupuncture is a highly effective means of pain relief, using gently, strategically placed needles to encourage the release of the body’s natural pain killers and relieve areas of tension in the nerves and muscles.

     

    Sports massage

    A specialist form of massage, this is invaluable in repairing and maintaining wellbeing. It is often used before sporting events, helping to prepare athletes by promoting flexibility and afterwards to relieve any swelling, reduce tension and help repair injury.

    Electrotherapy

    Electrotherapy uses tiny electrical impulses to stimulate the nerves, causing certain muscles to contract and override the pain messages sent to the brain. Painless and effective, electrotherapy reduces pain and helps muscles to repair themselves.

     

    Core stability

    Core stability treatment builds the strength and stability of the core muscles to better support the body. It is a valuable part of maintaining wellbeing and widely used by athletes. We offer wellbeing exercise classes, more info can be found HERE, to promote core stability.

    Postural analysis

    Back and joint pain is often the result of poor posture, which can put pressure on parts of the body not designed to support your weight. Postural analysis helps us to identify and address any cause of pain with suggested exercises and changes to your posture.

     

    Ergonomic / occupational advice

    Aches, pains, repetitive strain injury and accidents at work can all be easily avoided with advice on keeping the workplace safe and comfortable.

     

    Spinal and osteo-arthritic classes

    We offer exercise classes, click HERE for more info , to encourage the strength and stability of your spine and help you fight the effects of arthritic pain with increased flexibility.

    Chiropody and podiatric biomechanical assessment

    If you are prescribed orthotic insoles, we can assess your needs and ensure that you get exactly what your body needs.
