Amanda and Sylvie have a range of skills between them helping you to be your optimum self.

Chiropractic

Chiropractors are trained experts who focus on the spine and the neuro-musculoskeletal system, and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and performance.

McTimoney Method Technique

The McTimoney approach to chiropractic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago. It is well known for being a whole body approach to chiropractic care using light, quick and specific adjustments. Most people experience little or no discomfort when receiving a McTimoney Method treatment.

 

Massage

Injured and tight muscles develop scar tissue and fibrous knots which can cause muscle spasm, stiffness, muscular pain and reduces mobility around the joints.

We use a range of techniques to reduce muscle spasm, mobilise stiffened joints, improve flexibility, mobility, relieve pain and increase circulation.

Anyone can benefit from sports massage; you do not have to be a sports person. A physically demanding job, being sat at a desk for many hours, different postures or lifestyle stress may produce many similar characteristics to an injury such as discomfort, pain, or lethargy.

Sports massage originates from Swedish massage with added soft tissue stretch and mobilisation.

Deep tissue massage works through the whole muscle graduating through the layers to bring about a change in the tissue.

Pregnancy massage is adapted to ensure the Mum to be is comfortable and is also more focused on those areas taking more strain from the body changes.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment involves fine needles being inserted through the skin and briefly left in position. The number of needles varies but may be only two or three. The acupuncture needles stimulate the nerves in skin and muscle, and can produce a variety of effects. We know that it increases the body’s release of natural painkillers – endorphin and serotonin – in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.

Acupuncture is effective in a range of painful conditions and is commonly used for short-term relief of chronic low back pain and neck pain, and can help with the management of knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.

There is good evidence that it is effective in the short term relief of tension type headaches and migraine, and of temporomandibular joint pain
