Chiropody / Podiatry

A podiatrist is more commonly known as a Chiropodist meaning the same. They are highly skilled professionals trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the foot and lower limbs. They prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections. General treatments include skin, such as corn and callous removal, nail care, soft tissue and connective tissue problems and advice on footwear.​ So if you are prone to problems relating to the foot such as corns, callous, dry cracked heals, ingrown toenails, athletes foot, verruca, bunions, chilblains, to name but a few. Or if you simply cannot manage to cut your own toenails.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of physical therapy that originated in America in the 1870’s as a reaction to the then very primitive medical care that was available. Its founder based his thinking on the premise that the human body has the power to restore itself to health but that it can only achieve this if the body’s structure is functioning correctly.

Osteopathy is deeply concerned with the relationship between structure and function of the body. There are many processes that can disturb this relationship, including injury, stress, poor postural habits and those medical conditions such as arthritis which affect the structure of the joints.​ Osteopathic treatment is aimed at restoring the relationship between structure and function to enable the body’s own healing capabilities to proceed.

Emmett Technique

The Emmett Technique uses a combination of direct pressure and gentle switches to release specific muscle groups and allow the client’s body to return to a state of balance.  The results are often dramatic, and can be instantaneous, with most clients recognising the improvements in pain levels and range of movement before leaving the clinic.  

 

Practitioners are trained in assessment skills and how to use the best combination of moves in their knowledge base to effect change.  Additionally, practitioners are taught special language skills in order to assist the client to recognise and enhance the changes so achieved and this adds to the successful outcome of the work.

It can be very effective as a Lymphatic system booster. This is not to be confused with a medically prescribed lymphatic massage which is usually the result of a specific diagnosis. Emmett works well alongside any bodywork therapy and greatly enhances the practice of any therapist.

Body Treatment

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a whole body rebalancing treatment which aims to trigger an internal healing process. The nervous system begins relaxation which allows this rebalancing to occur. Once this healing process has started the body continues to heal for days after treatment.

 

Fingers or thumbs make rolling type moves over muscle, tendon and other soft tissue. Specific breaks are made during the treatment which allows the body to relax and aid rebalancing. Bowen Therapy treats the whole body not just specific conditions. It cannot worsen or cause any harm to any condition.  Most clients find that they fully relax - some even go to sleep! Many find that they feel less stressed and have improved posture after their treatment. Relief is often felt immediately from their condition. ​​Sometimes relief from pain can be instantaneous. Other times it may take up to 3 treatments  before relief is felt. Chronic conditions may take longer than 3 sessions. Bowen Therapy may help with, pain management, sports injuries, acute and chronic back pain, chronic fatigue, digestive issues, whiplash, stress and relaxation.
