Acupuncture is a medical technique used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions by stimulating the nervous system through the contact of the needles with the skin and muscles.
Acupuncture has been seen to help in the treatment of trigger points, these are areas within muscles that may feel like a “knot” and can cause local or referred pain to another site within the body.
Stimulating these trigger points with the use of acupuncture can help to increase the release of endorphins and serotonin (the bodies natural painkillers)
Acupuncture is also beneficial in treating musculoskeletal pain, headaches, migraines, sports injuries, arthritic and rheumatic pain, menstrual and menopausal symptoms and functional bowel or bladder problems.
Cranial osteopathy was developed by William Garner Sutherland based upon how the 26 bones of the skull are connected by modified joints, which allow a degree of movement to be expressed through the skull, membranes, fluids and brain within. The motion can also be felt throughout the body and is beyond our voluntary control and is also called involuntary motion.
Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body, including the head.
It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages.
Naturopathy is a system that addresses three components of an individual (their physical, psychological and chemical wellbeing), modifying imbalances within this triad assists in restoring health.
A naturopathic osteopath employs methods which work with the body’s healing powers and self-correcting mechanisms as well as avoiding treatments which may work against those mechanisms which can suppress acute and chronic diseases.
During each treatment the naturopathic osteopath will help with the underlying causes of dysfunction whilst addressing the 3 aspects of the naturopathic triad of health and treating the body as a whole. Naturopathy helps to prevent future diseases or dysfunctions occurring by removing the cause.
