I was fortunate to see how useful homeopathy was before I knew what it was and before I had been affected by any medical prejudices. Homeopathy has survived attacks on it for 200 years for only onereason-it works. Other than the fact that it works it has not much going for it-its mechanism of action is not understood and on the face of it, it seems contrary to common sense to think that very small doses of medicines work.
Osteopathy is a tried and tested treatment of musculo-skeletal disorders, and its holistic approach ensures that all treatments are tailored to the individual patient; their problem and theirlifestyle. Western acupuncture, sometimes also called dry-needling, has been shown to be effective in a wide range of painful conditions and is commonly used to treat musculo-skeletal pain such as back, shoulder, neck and leg pain.
Acupuncture with a trained and fully qualified practitioner is one of the safest and longest established forms of healthcare. It is suitable for people of all ages, including pregnant women andchildren, and can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine. Chinese medicine recognises that health is more than just the absence of disease and it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance our capacity for well being and happiness.
