About your first visit
Q: Will I get treatment on the first session?
A: Yes you will. Arrive on time or a little early, complete a medical history, bring any relevant scans or reports. Then I will examine your posture, movement of joints, muscle strengths and give you hands on physical treatment.
Q: Where do I come for my appointment?
A: 76 Blackmoor Gate, Furzton, Milton Keynes, MK4 1DB – Find us on Google Maps
Q: What will you do?
A: I am passionate about helping your body to work well for you. You might need help with back pain, shoulder pain or feel that your body lets you down. First I will listen to your story, pain is often linked to habits with posture, past accidents, events such as operations, pregnancy or hormonal changes. My aim is to remove barriers in your body and improve your energy by increasing blood flow. Muscles and fascia always carry a degree of tension. Simply relaxing muscles through massage, doesn’t always restore your body to harmony. My techniques are a blend of osteopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, craniosacral and massage therapy.
Q: How does acupuncture work?
A: Inserting very thin needles triggers the immune system to improve blood flow to an area. It can also block pain signals and open energy channels through the fascia and lymphatics. My first mentor Anthony Campbell said that 50-60% of people felt a definite response.
Q: How often will I need to come?
A: That is entirely by agreement, with no pressure on you. Most conditions take one to three sessions to improve. Frozen shoulder will take longer but one session is always helpful. Some people choose to come regularly to maintain their health, anything from monthly to six monthly.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: The standard price is £60 an hour. Most people pay £55 for up to 45 minutes. Paying more gives you more depth of treatment, longer massage and discussion on future goals.
Q. What kind of treatments do you offer? We will correct and balance your posture using using your own muscles and gentle rocking techniques. I also offer deep tissue massage, acupuncture, craniosacral theryapy, myofascial release, manual lymph drainage, pre and post-operation or pregnancy lymph drainage. I can use laser therapy or ultrasound, work with you to find specific exercises and types of breathing. We will base exercises and breathing on the principles of yoga, pilates and Qi Gong.
