I am an osteopath, cranial osteopath, naturopath and homeopath. I believe we are all unique and we all need different treatments in order to rebalance. To me each person is multi faceted and multi layered – with careful questioning and sensing, my aim is to really understand who you are and why you are out of kilter. My belief is that we should try to get to the cause of the illness/ disease. I have treated many conditions over my 25 years of practice, so have dealt with most things. I feel confident to try to treat any ailment having been challenged by all kinds of difficult cases and had success.
There are many reasons why we get out of balance. Some illness really can be as simple as a food intolerance. My training has taught me to look at a person’s fundamental constitution which enables me to really understand why they have become unwell and what changes need to be made to remedy that. I also look at what are your inherited weaknesses and we have homeopathic remedies that really help this aspect.
My training in osteopathy means that as well as helping with back ache/ neck ache/ joint problems I can look at the way you use your body .. You’d be amazed how this can be a factor in your health.. The human body is complex but I feel as if I have developed a way of understanding it that makes it much less so.
Another aspect of my work is that I look at what factors in our life may have disturbed the way our body functions. By this I mean traumatic events – grief, physical injury or abuse, emotional shocks, sudden change – job loss, change of environment, childbirth – for baby and mother etc… It seems to me that the human condition is very sensitive to all levels of shock and so often a person’s health deteriorates following this.
So if you come for an initial consultation with me I will ask you to complete a questionnaire which normally tells me your constitutional homeopathic type as well as your inherited weaknesses. You can treat to prevent diseases in your family history from developing. This all gives me huge clues as to why you are unwell and I can usually determine which of your major organs need supporting which we do with dietary changes and homeopathic remedies. I also can test you for allergies and vitamin/ mineral deficiencies and advise you accordingly. If necessary I look at you structurally too and give most people some cranial osteopathy as a way of lining you up physically but also kick starting what we call your vital force.
All forms of holistic medicine believe that the body has innate intelligence which with the right help will restore your body to health.. This is known as the vital force. Most people who come and see me leave with a much better understanding of their body and mind.
