alternative therapy


You only book an appointment with one of our therapist and let us know what do you need help with.


Once you are booked in, depending on assessment, what you need help with, age, sex, past medical history, previous treatment received, medications, your goals and what you are looking to achieve and much more, we are going to discuss with you what would be the best treatment modalities to get from where you are to where you what to be.




It is called as well manipulation or thrust, which is a High-Velocity Low-Amplitude (HVLA) manoeuvre, where the clinician performs a fast movement to the target joint to:

– Reduce the pain;

– Decreases the release of stress hormones;

– Feel-good hormones like oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin are released which allow healing to take place

– Restore the normal movement in a joint;

– Reset the information to the neuromuscular system.

For people that are scared of them, we provide as well SPINAL MOBILISATION which are a much gentler way that even though it can take longer, can achieve the same results of the adjustments.

IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization):

It is a soft tissue therapy that involves the use of particular tools designed to help the physiotherapist to treat that fascial restriction more efficiently and effectively.
They allow using the right amount of pressure to easily treat tendons/ligaments or small structures, to be more efficient (less time and more quality) and to relieve the therapist’s hands.


Cupping therapy:

It is another type of soft tissue therapy that uses tools, in particular, cups on the skin to create suction. It can be used in two modalities: static and dynamic. In the second one, with the use of oil or cream to create a contemporaneous sliding on the tissues whilst performing the vacuum. 
Cupping therapy as well can be used for the stimulation of acupuncture points.

Below are listed some of the positive that these soft tissue therapies can provide:

  • improve blood circulation;
  • improve elasticity and the slide between the fascial planes.
  • reduces scar tissue and the adhesions
  • Reduces soreness and improves tissue recovery.
  • Improves neuromuscular efficiency.
  • Increases blood flow.
  • Maintains normal functional muscular length.
  • Improves joint range of motion.

Have you ever wondered WHY:

  • do you seem to react always in the same way in a particular situation?
  • are some Habits so difficult to change?
  • don’t you get what you want?
  • do you feel that there is something holding you back from achieving your goals?
  • do some people look so confident?
  • 2 people being in the same situation achieve completely different results?

Just imagine the Mind as a computer, when you first buy a computer and you turn it on, there is the basic Apple or Microsoft software installed and nothing more. After you are able to install any software that you like or you need.

The Mind from 0-6 years old is the same, with the difference that you don’t decide what to install, but you learn Beliefs and Behaviours from others. Logically after 6 you will still keep learning and developing but the big chunk of software is there and the new ones will be created in order to match as much as possible what’s already in there.

There is a big BUT:

What if I tell you that there are techniques that can help you to access this Software and change it with new one of your choice?

Why do we feel stressed?

Everything depends on how we perceive the world. Each one of us has a subjective view of everything that is happening around us.

Let’s give an example:

  • Public Speaking

A person might be stressed knowing that they are going to speak in front of a group of people, instead, another person can be completely confident and at ease.

  1. The first person’s Mind perceives speaking in front of the public as a Threat. This could be for many reasons, such as forecasting a disastrous performance or having low self-esteem and focusing on what the people in the room may think of them. There might be several different scenarios.
  2. The second person’s Mind perceives speaking in front of the public as a normal task as can be brushing the teeth. This means that this person holds a completely different belief system, for example: public speaking is normal for me, I am a confident person.

In nutshell, the situation is the same but how these two People perceive it, is completely different.

Using the appropriate techniques we can change how we perceive situations, therefore we can change things that are stressful into something much easier to deal with.
This in return will lower our stress levels, improve our mood and Wellbeing.
