What to expect: When you first come for a consultation i will ask you, in detail, about your condition, your medical history and your present state of health. You will be physically examined, especially your spine.
The spine and posture give an impression of your state of health, as the spine is influenced by, and influences, all the organs through the spinal cord and nervous system. The Treatment: This consists of a series of gentle, rhythmical movements of the arms, legs, and the spine, combined with gentle stretching of muscles and adjustments of the joints and ligaments.
After treatment you may be advised on posture, exercise, diet or other natural means of helping you with your condition. Treatment has a positive effect on the body systems, so it is common to experience reaction. This may involve a temporary exacerbation of symptoms as the body's physiology begins the healing process. However, it is also common to feel immediate relief or even some fatigue.
Nick will discuss such changes with you before you leave. There can sometimes be an emotional release which is also perfectly normal. Keep in touch with me and if you have any concerns at all just call - handy, effective advice can be dispensed over the phone.
