OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy has become very popular in the UK over the past 20 or so years, with new clinics popping up every year.

At Phoenix Place, Wendy and Robin bring over 23 years of work experience to its’ clients, and continue to advance their training and education every year. They are ready to share that knowledge and experience with you.

We take that trust very seriously! It’s why our clients keep coming back to us, and keep referring their friends and colleagues.

 

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and injuries. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that your well-being depends upon everything working in harmony, creating balance and optimal health. When things go wrong and the natural balance is upset, pain and dysfunction are often the result.

Osteopaths work to restore your body’s natural balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. We treat the young and the old, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for many conditions, including back pain, postural problems caused by pregnancy, driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world, and, yes, it’s all about those very fine needles.

The focus is on the client as an individual, not their illness. All symptoms are seen in relation to each other.

Many people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains, such as osteoarthritis of the knee, headaches and low back pain, or for common health problems like an overactive bladder.

Others choose acupuncture when they start to feel their bodily functions are out of balance. Regular scheduled treatments are common, as clients find it so beneficial and relaxing.

Other conditions that may be helped include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain, joint pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Knee pain
  • Muscular aches
  • Neck pain
  • Post-operative pain
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (R.S.I.)
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Allergies
  • Chemotherapy side effects
  • Colds/Flus
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Hayfever
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Insomnia

PODIATRY/CHIROPODY

Chiropodists and podiatrists deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb and are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries.

They work with people of all ages but play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.

Your feet often take 10,000 steps per day; that’s over 3.5 million steps a year and that is why experts recommend you see a Podiatrist at least twice a year.

At Phoenix Place for Health, our expert podiatrist is best placed to diagnose and treat every type of foot problem.

Everybody can benefit from a general foot treatment. During a full half-hour appointment our Podiatrist will ensure all nails are trimmed and filed, hard skin is removed and corns and callus addressed, leaving your feet in great condition.

For a professional service from a fully qualified, HCPC* registered podiatrist, you can rest assured that a visit to Phoenix Place for Health will be beneficial to the health of your feet.
*HCPC is the Health Care Professions Council. This regulatory body is set up to regulate health and care professionals in the UK, ensuring the public is protected.

SPORT & REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Okay, so you’re no super athlete, but you still like to get out and be active.

Regardless of your sporting level, physical fitness or strength, massage can be a great help in the maintenance and health of the body’s soft tissues.

Massage can be used to treat a range of muscular injuries and conditions, from whiplash and pulled hamstrings to tight shoulders and back strain associated with pregnancy. Many different massage techniques can be used to reduce pain, enhance performance, improve range of movement and aid recovery.

Remedial massage therapy simply means using manual therapy techniques to try to “remedy” a problem. But to offer a remedy you must do more than just relieve pain; you must also be able to understand how the problem came about and how it can be avoided in the future.

Sport massage is a specialist area within Remedial massage therapy which applies all the same techniques and principles in a way that best meet the specific needs of the athlete. As well as dealing effectively with a variety of musculoskeletal problems this therapy can also be used to help in recovery and reduce the symptoms in many medical conditions too.

Pregnancy or pre-natal massage is a massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs.

Pregnancy is a time of great change, your centre of gravity will alter and this can put additional stresses on your back, neck, shoulders and abdomen. As your baby grows you may start feeling the strain. Massage is a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited.

Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.

Pregnancy massage therapy has been found to reduce anxiety and depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health.

Natalie earned her Pregnancy Massage Diploma in 2013, and is fully qualified Pregnancy Massage Therapist.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology dates back to 2500 BC where it was practised in China and Egypt, for good health.

Foot reflexology is a pressure point therapy to the soles of the foot. Pressure is applied to specific points known as reflexes. This encourages the body to heal within.

Reflexology has many psychological and physiological effects that affect the entire body rather than just the area that is being worked on, therefore it is known as a holistic therapy.

An individual treatment plan will be made for each client for their specific condition, although the whole body will be worked on.

Reflexology may help to:

  • Improve circulation
  • Promote the release of endorphins as natural pain relief
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Energise and re-energise
  • Encourage relaxation
  • Soothe the feet
  • Allow the body to repair itself

NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

We help clients master one of the most important prerequisites for good health: a balanced diet.

Whether patients hope to lose weight, compete in a triathlon or manage a chronic illness, their eating habits can mean the difference between failure and success.

We really are what we eat! Our bodies are made up entirely of food molecules and yet many of us are unaware of the benefits of nutrients and the impact these may have on how we feel on a daily basis and our future health.

Not only are we what we eat, but what we absorb, the health of our digestive tract is crucial to ensuring this is the best it can be.

An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time the practitioner asks detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet.

The practitioner then evaluates individual needs and devises a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme that is both practical and realistic to address any imbalances and support good health.
