Why Massage?

Why massage?

Everyone suffers from tight muscles at some point in their life, whether it’s due to stress, injury or simple overuse. Muscle tension can range from a mild, constant irritation to outright pain. Look at it as your muscles’ way of telling you that they’re not working to their full potential and something needs to be done about it.

Some people ignore muscle tension and hope it will go away, and sometimes it does – albeit temporarily. It doesn’t mean the muscle has stretched and…

The Benefits Of Acupuncture And How It Works

How does Acupuncture work?

In Chinese medicine, Qi is the motivating force behind all living things, it streams through the body along a series of meridians and health problems, both physical and emotional, can then be interpreted as 'inharmonious' flow of Qi. Ancient Chinese texts identified the acupuncture points on the body where Qi accumulates or comes close to the surface making external interaction possible. By interacting with the flow of Qi, acupuncturists are able to assist the body…

My son vomits every morning...

I see lots of children in my practice. Meet Carl. He is 4 years old.  A friendly, curious boy who wants to talk to me. He is of a slight build and I notice his long eyelashes. Carl and his mum have come to see me because he has had reflux since a small infant and regularly coughs in the night until he vomits. He has been taking a combination of Omeprazole which is an antacid medication and 2 asthma inhalers daily since age 2. When these medications stop working his GP increases the dose. More…

The Worry Every New Mum Has When Starting Breastfeeding

‘How do I know how much they are getting?’

Nearly all new parents (myself included) worry in the first few days of breastfeeding that their baby is getting enough milk. The mere fact that you cannot see how much they are taking at each feed is disconcerting.  Your role as a parent is to care for this tiny individual’s every need and keeping them fed is an essential part of that role and you can’t even tell how many mls they took at the last feed! However, be reassured that there are very clear…

The Food App We Cannot Eat Without (FREE APP)

When it comes to buying food or eating out, the sheer amount of choice out there is a metabolic minefield, not to mention trying to get past the ambiguity of labels these days. All Natural? What does that actually mean? While it MAY be fine for the Average Joe, 10% of the population these days has a food allergy, 20% have a food intolerance and the rest of us are on a mission to eat healthier by cutting out our dairy, gluten, and/or sugar. But what about Vegans, Vegetarians, and Paleos? We live…

Anxiety & Kids - When Back to School is the Trigger

Homeopathy - Is your baby crying every hour most nights? A Silent Reflux Case

One of the things I love about my job is I get to meet lots of babies. The single most common reason parents bring their babies to me is Silent Reflux and Homeopathy offers fast relief.

My most recent patient with this condition is Tom. Tom is 5 months old and used be awake every hour most nights.
