Chiropractic is a regulated primary health care profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system, and your general health and wellbeing.
Massage is recorded as one of the earliest forms of physical therapy. Sports or Remedial Massage is one of the most effective therapies for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. A constant build up of tension in the muscles may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments and tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
Rehabilitation involves the use of functional and dynamic exercises in order to treat current injuries and to prevent injury. Our rehabilitation specialists have the knowledge and skills necessary to recognise the risks associated with poor stability, faulty movement patterns and injury.
Acupuncture is a system of healing, developed some 3500 years ago in China.

The energy and flow of the cerebrospinal fluid can be felt throughout the tissues and fluids of the body, ideally flowing freely and evenly. Cranio-Sacral therapy is used to treat areas of restriction and is ideal for back problems and headaches as well as emotional difficulties.
