Clinical Pilates & Acupuncture
Pilates is mat based exercise which helps improve posture and core strength. It is particularly useful for those recovering from illness or injury, wanting to exercise in a safe, gradual way. The one-to-one sessions are run by a physiotherapist with a broad experience of treating injuries, who can advise on the exercises most suitable for you personally.
Acupuncture is used to aid in the management of pain and inflammation. It is achieved by utilising the body’s own natural healing chemicals to help recovery from injury and disease.
The Alexander Technique helps in two ways. Firstly, in your no-pain session, your painful tension is gently released in order to help you feel better and have better posture. And secondly, you learn to keep this new pain-free posture in everyday activities like working and driving. Sessions are gentle and don’t involve any painful manipulation or needling.
Hypnotherapy & Holistics

From a natural, relaxed state, hypnosis accesses the subconscious mind, encouraging clients to “let go” of issues they are holding onto to make positive life changes.
