1. Homoeopathic Medicine
This is a complete health care system which is free from toxic side effects and is based upon principles that are even older than Hippocrates. This system of medicine uses the law of similars that "like cures like" and looks at the total disease of the patient, physical, mental and emotional.
Herbal medicine, sometimes referred to as Herbalism, Botanical medicine or Herbology, is the use of plants, in a wide variety of forms, for their therapeutic value. Herb plants produce and contain a variety of chemical compounds that act upon the body and are used to prevent or treat disease or promote health and well-being.
Remedies are produced by either taking the whole plant, or just the part of the plant required, and often mixing it with other plants. They are usually boiled in water or alcohol, and made into: herbal teas; herbal decoctions; herbal syrup; herbal tincture; infused oils; salves & ointment/creams.
Disease is due to an accumulation of waste products and toxins in the body and symptoms reflect the body's attempt to cleanse itself of these substances. Naturopathy looks to nature for its curative powers, using natural plant extracts, tinctures and wholesome food to restore health to the body.
Acupuncture is an ancient system of treatment where it is believed that the energy of the body circulates along specific channels, called meridians and illness disturbs the harmousious flow of "chi" through the body. To restore health, needles are inserted at specific points to re-establish a balanced flow of energy through the points.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
To qualify, an osteopath must study for four to five years for an undergraduate degree. This is similar to a medical degree, with more emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine and includes more than 1,000 hours of training in osteopathic techniques. Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, cranial and visceral treatment as well as stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. Osteopaths also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
Osteopaths’ patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, repetitive strain injury, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and sports injuries.
Before we start to treat you, we will make a full medical assessment. We take time to listen to you and ask questions to make sure we understand your medical history and your day-to-day routine. We’ll ask you about things like diet, exercise and what is happening in your life, as these may give clues to help our diagnosis. We may feel your pulse and check your reflexes. We may also take your blood pressure and refer you for clinical tests, such as x-rays, if we think you need them.
Treatment is different for every patient as patients are assessed on an individual basis relating to their presenting complaint. Short and long term management approaches relating to the patient will be formulated with regard to offering the most effective overall treatment and rehabilitation.
To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.
