A – Z of Therapies

 

Acupuncture

Practitioner: Anne Wright

Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine – a tried and tested healthcare system that has been practised for thousands of years in China and the Far East. 

Acupunture encourages the boby to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupunture points. Acupuncture is often associated with pain control, but it has much broader applications including; digestive disorders, respiratory disorders, neurological and muscular disorders, urinary, menstrual and reproductive problems and acupuncture is paritcularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions.

In her clinical work, Anne focuses on chronic and acute pain management and relief as well as general health and well-being. Besides using acupuncture, Anne also uses moxibustion (warming herb) above the skin to warm and promote circulation as well as cupping to release tight muscles and relieve muscle spasms.

Qualifications, Fees & Clinic Times

 

Cranial Osteopathy

Consultant: Justin Sharp

Cranial osteopathy is a specific type of extremely gentle osteopathic treatment, which focuses on relieving stress and tension throughout the body. Because it’s such a gentle form of therapy, it can be practised on people with a wide range of conditions, and is suitable for all ages, from newborns to the elderly.

Cranial osteopathy can be of particular benefit to mothers and babies post childbirth.  Birth is one of the most stressful events of our lives and the compressive forces exerted on the body during this process can contribute to a lot of musculoskeletal problems sooner or later in life.  Signs that your baby may be experiencing birth compression might be; constantly crying irritable baby, sleep disturbances, feeding problems, wind, colic, sinusitis and ear, nose and throat disorders.

Cranial osteopathy may be of benefit to adults who are afraid of more physical spinal manipulation, particularly when the nervous system is out of balance as with migraine, period problems, and irritable bowel syndrome. It can be a gentle, yet effective way to treat the same musculoskeletal problems presenting to traditional osteopaths such as; osteoarthritis, neck/back pain, frozen shoulder.
