Naturopath and Nutritionist
Tel: 01225 465164/07952093198
Many of our patients who receive treatment for mercury removal are interested in a detox plan and information about heavy metal testing. Kevin Day uses accurate testing to itemise what toxins or deficiencies exist, and from there can work out a personal diet and lifestyle program to assist your individual needs and support your mercury detox.
Kevin uses the SCIO analysis system to test the body, and find out which nutrients are missing, what is causing problems, and what the body is dealing with in order of priority. The results of the test can be used to develop a diet and lifestyle plan that can help with a variety of health issues including heart and circulation problems, digestive issues, asthma and breathing problems, mental health concerns, bone and joint problems, hair, face and skin problems, and many more.

Emma and Linda offer Bowen Therapy, along with a variety of other therapies to help support a variety of health concerns. The Bowen Technique is a gentle treatment that addresses the body as a whole rather than the par-ticular issue (ie it looks for the root cause of the problem).
The treatment is safe for anyone, from pregnant women and newborns, to the sports person, and the frail and the elderly. It involves small 'moves' over muscles, ligaments/tendons and tissue and can effectively relieve pain and assist recovery from many conditions, for example: from traumatic injury to chronic illness.
