Physiotherapy helps people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual 'hands-on' therapy, education and advice. Assessment involves firstly getting a thorough history of the problem through discussion, as well as an understanding of the individual. Then the physical examination may involve assessment of range of movement, muscle strength and length, joint mobility/stiffness, balance etc. This assessment is then used to discuss diagnosis and treatment options. Treatment may include a combination of soft tissue release work for muscle tightness, joint mobilisation for stiffness, exercise therapy for muscle weakness, balance retraining, walking re-education, sports specific rehab, acupuncture etc.
Homeopathy is a complete system of natural medicine, and is the second most widely-used medicine in the world today, according to the World Health Organisation. Homeopathy is suitable for a wide range of conditions, including long-term, and is often effective where other approaches have not helped. A homeopath treats each person as a unique individual, and the remedies are chosen to harness the body’s own healing potential to bring about healing and balance, physically and emotionally. The method of preparation of remedies means that it is safe for all, including pregnant women, children and babies.

Kundalini Yoga uses sets of physical postures and movements (asana), meditation, breathing exercises (pranayam), hand positions (mudra) and chanting (mantra). Kundalini yoga is great for physical wellbeing and emotional happiness. It supports the nervous and immune systems, helps us to maintain physical strength and flexibility and improves circulation. By learning to breathe properly, we can oxygenate the entire body and clear the mind, helping us to release fears, irritability, depression, emotional blocks and to alleviate stress.
Yin Yoga is a holistic practice that improves our overall wellbeing: physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.
We can support healthy functioning of our physical body through the releasing of tension at the same time as cultivating spaciousness and peace within.
Optimum health is a state of equilibrium, and ill-health comes from imbalance or dis-ease within the body. Many of us suffer from chronic stress, living constantly in the fight or flight mode. Sooner or later we will become depleted to the point of illness.
Yin Yoga offers us a way of restoring balance as an anti-dote to the yang way in which many of us live.
