Your personalised Holistic Physiotherapy session may include one or a number of the following therapies or modes of treatment:
Low Level Light Therapy has been shown in over 50 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible red, blue and 'invisible' infrared light effect at least 24 positive changes at the cellular level.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) disperse light (red, blue or infrared) over a greater surface area than lasers which tends to result in shorter treatment times for a given area. Pulsed light is the most profound way to 'enlighten' your cells as it increases circulation, stimulates release of ATP, promotes cell regeneration, speeds up healing process, relieves pain in nerves and helps to detoxify the body.
The Low Level Light Therapy is effective at stress reduction and relaxation with a compilation of Quantum, Solfeggio, Schumann frequencies and more, supporting the natural healing phase of the body. It can also utilise a specific set of frequencies to target anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
Using crystalline energy facilitates the break-up and release of energy blockages within your electromagnetic energy field that may be hindering you from moving forward. Crystal Light Therapy is a highly spiritual and authentic body, mind & soul treatment.
Crystal Light Therapy uses the combination of crystals, guided imagery, and sound to focus light frequencies into the physical body. By raising the vibration of the human energy field, emotional energy blocks are released allowing one to experience the realm of unconditional love. This awareness expansion realization combined with massage creates a feeling of balance and harmony.
By vibrating the crystals (creating a piezoelectrical effect), the chakra centres can be cleared, balanced and re-aligned with the universal healing energy of Divine Light.
At the base of most disease there is an underlying root cause or thought that contributes to the imbalance that promotes “dis-ease” within the body. These imbalances can be from unresolved issues, thoughts, trauma or other depleting emotions. These imbalances get lodged in the layers of the aura of the person and create blockages that can eventually progress into a problem within the body, mind and one's spirit. The Crystal Light Therapy technique addresses these blockages and provides the means by which they can be released.
Crystal Light Therapy benefits the “whole” being of the person; the body, the mind and the spirit. Restoring balance on all levels enables a person to live life more harmoniously.
Trained by renowned Patricia Edge, the originator, known as the ‘Crystal Woman' in America.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a healing therapy based on the ancient principles of acupuncture and is proving to be dramatically effective. This psychotherapeutic tool works using the theory that the negative emotions which follow a negative experience disturb the body's energy field and that tapping on the meridians while thinking about the negative emotion rebalances the electromagnetic energy field, reprogramming and clearing the imbalance.
It may seem bizzare that tapping certain points can produce dramatic results but in practice this therapy can reduce healing time from months or years down to minutes or hours. You can learn to do this technique yourself and once mastered you can apply it throughout your life, to improve your health and gain contol of your emotions.
The Emotional Freedom Techniques concept was developed in the US in the 1990's by Gary Craig. EFT roots are in acupuncture, kinesiology and psychology. EFT is now spreading very rapidly in the US and in the UK, where the concept is now used in some specialist areas of the National Health Service.
Flower essences are tinctures of flowers, trees, crystals and vibrations held in water and traditionally taken under the tongue, rubbed on pulse points, placed on the meridians and chakras, added to a bath or sprayed in the air or around yourself.
Flower Essences were brought to the attention of healers by the work of Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936). Since his death many other ranges of essences have emerged from all over the UK and, in fact, all over the globe. Dr. Bach produced his 38 essences by two methods; sunlight/water and the boiling method. Many essence producers today still use these methods however essences are now created from many sources and in many ways and you will find essences made by the moon light and at special times of year and by human intention.
Mother tinctures are then diluted into stock bottles that are then used to make personal combinations and taken by you/the client over the next month or so after which time a further combination may well be needed.
Essences can be useful for people of all ages and states of health. They are also valuable, non-intrusive tools for self healing and development. Some practitioners work solely with essences whilst others work with them as an adjunct to other therapies.
These tinctures are non addictive and self adjusting (that is they energetically adapt themselves to the individual taking them). Their energy helps us emotionally, psychologically and spiritually to understand, acknowledge and develop a self understanding of ourselves and support us whilst we make necessary changes to the way we behave, the way we think and make the most of the opportunities we have in life.
The basic principle of homeopathy is ‘like cures like'. An example would be if you were to develop a cold with streaming eyes and a sore nose you might well be prescribed Allium Cepa which is more commonly known as the onion. If you peel an onion your eyes water and your nose runs and so we have similar symptoms to that of your cold. Hahnemann discovered that if you gave minute quantities of a substance (onion) that caused similar effects to the symptoms that you are suffering (runny nose and streaming eyes) then this would stimulate an immune response in your body which would then start to ease and finally cure the symptoms of the cold.
It treats the ‘whole person' and not just the illness and takes into account past and present illnesses, emotional and physical well being, likes and dislikes and family history.

Touch for Health® Kinesiology (TFHK) is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy for greater comfort, vitality and enjoyment of your life. Touch for Health falls under the branch of alternative and complementary therapy known as Kinesiology - systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body and how that stress can be decreased.
This is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world. It is recognised and respected as a fundamental training for other kinesiology systems as well as a healing modality in its own right. Using supportive dialogue, positive goal-setting and creative visualisation, accessing mental/emotional and sensory/associative aspects of memory, posture & energy make TFH balancing profound, effective and meaningful.
Kinesiology is a combination of western style muscle testing, anatomy and physiology, traditional Chinese 5 element theory, meridians and energy balancing. Goal setting can be used with specific energy points targeted on the body to clear negative conditioning and replace with positive thought patterns, resulting in increased health of mind, body and spirit.
The benefits include, increased vitality, energy, balance and resiliency, help with discovering a sense of meaning and purpose in your daily life, an increase in optimum performance and personal best, enhanced healing and accelerated recovery and an increased personal awareness and effectiveness of self care.
Sebastian Kneipp, believed to be the "father" of modern hydrotherapy, is famous the world over. Known as the "Waterdoctor from Worishofen," Kneipp developed over 100 different hydrotherapy protocols using three forms of water: solid, liquid and vapour, with applications that included washing/ ablutions; wraps; packs; compresses; poultices; affusions; steam; and baths.
Within a dry clinic environment, we are able to utilise the benefits of Kneipp Hot & cold wraps and packs which can be used to clear inflammation, stimulate healing and restore homeostasis to the body whilst balancing the autonomic nervous system.
Benefits of Kneipp hydrotherapy include: relaxation and general sense of well-being; muscle relaxation; increased excretion through the skin; stimulation of metabolism; stabilization of body warmth; regulation of blood pressure; activation of the immune system; and ameliorated circulation of the skin.
MFR works to release the physical and emotional memories of dense, thick or hard fascia which can sometimes become locked in the fascia system through injury, trauma, scarring, inflammation, bad postural habits and general disassociation from a sense of physical alignment.
The MFR technique is a specific form of physical therapy that affects and releases fascial restrictions throughout the body to eliminate pain and restore motion. The therapist applies a sustained, gentle pressure for a minimum of 90 to 120 seconds; allowing the fascia to elongate naturally and return to its normal resting length. The MFR therapist considers the client’s postural assessment and works directly with their intimate knowledge and intuitive sense of the body to feel and stretch slowly into the fascial network.
The MFR therapist works with the client to educate them in postural and movement awareness.
When the fascia is in a healthy state it is relaxed and wavy in configuration, to enable optimum support of all internal structures and organs. Healthy fascia allows the individual to feel a sense of freedom in their movement, comfort in their body and overall health and wellbeing. Releasing fascia encourages flexibility, strength and stability.
Past Life Therapy is based on the premise that memories from your past lives are held in the subconscious mind influencing your subconscious responses to situations in your current life. Once these are accessed, positive change can be elicited.
Hypnosis and NLP can be used to regress a person back to a previous life, bringing clarity, releasing deeply held trauma and the emotional energy associated with the event, where an understanding can be gained from a higher detached perspective and the wisdom brought forward. This heals the symptoms currently presenting in this life.
Whether you believe that the memories are due to reincarnation, the collective unconscious, the akashic records, are DNA ancestor based or that it is all imaginary, it does not detract from the fact that regression therapy is a powerful tool, which can help bring about powerful change. Experience freedom from the past. Become master of your own destiny.
Sports massage is a remedial hands on massage treatment using essential oils, that is used to help with muscle injuries, soreness and general aches and pains. Specific techniques have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results in helping break down areas of muscle tension and facilitating better mobilisation.
Generally, Sports massage can be used to help improve circulation and lymphatic flow, assist in the removal of metabolic waste, sedate or stimulate nerve endings, increase or decrease muscle tone and length, and remodel scar tissue.
Specific to sports performers and events, sports massage can assist in mental preparation, the conditioning/training phase, pre/inter/post competition, injury prevention and can be very effective in seperating and stretching muscle fibres and accelerating recovery from exercise.
Received regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
Sports Thai Massage is performed on the floor on your clothed body and involves a series of exquisite stretches which eliminate tension, improve flexibility, enhance sports performance and help to maintain a pain-free healthy body.
Sports Thai massage is designed to stretch muscles a little more than they would normally under the action of strongly contracting antagonistic muscles. It is a highly effective therapy for treating a range of pathological conditions of the musculo-skeletal system such as lower back pain, sciatica, tendonitis etc.
Most sports injuries involve damage to muscle fibres, myofascia or tendons and they are commonly caused by overuse of muscles that are not functionally balanced with other muscles in their group and with their antagonists.
Sports Thai massage enables each individual muscle treated to assume its normal relaxed length when not contracting. After an injury has occurred, the controlled stretches and manipulations employed have an unrivalled ability to speed healing and restore pain-free function. Sports Thai Massage provides maintenance that muscles need, improving performance by reducing the risk of injury for athletes and dancers during their training.
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning:
REI: Universally or Spiritually guided, wisdom and knowledge of the universe
KI: Life Force energy (which flows through every living thing and is present in some form in everything around us even in rocks and inanimate objects).
Reiki is an art of healing by touch, a way of channelling the Life Force energy to restore perfect balance to the body on all levels, healing not only physical disorders, but also emotional and mental problems, as it opens the mind to the causes of disease and pain, helping with their elimination. It can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth.
Reiki brings wholeness and integration, harmony and freedom, making us aware of unconscious patterns, limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging processes that hinder our lives, preventing it from flowing happily and freely. Reiki sets us free and enables us to be who we really are, and to do what we are here to do, allowing our life to flow unrestrictedly towards wholeness, happiness and self-fulfilment. It heals and strengthens us, opens our heart to love and compassion, and frees our life.
Treatments are carried out fully clothed and after a detailed consultation is carried out, the patient relaxes on the couch while the practitioner channels pure positive healing energy. The practitioner will either hold their hands above or in contact with the body and the most comfortable state is achieved much like the peaceful feeling during meditation practice.
Hypnosis utilises REM (Rapid Eye Movement) or the dream state, therapeutically and you remain relaxed and focussed throughout, choosing to participate in the session or withdraw at will. Therefore the most important thing is to be willing to concentrate and participate and allow yourself to experience true relaxation and gain personal control of your thoughts and therefore your life. You must want the treatment to be effective and be highly motivated to make the changes necessary. Hypnotherapy is not designed to force anyone to do anything against their will, this in fact is not possible. The Hypnotherapist facilitates you to make the changes you desire in your life, it centres on empowering you.
What can Hypnotherapy treat:
Hypnotherapy can be utilised for many psychological, emotional and physical disorders. It has proved to be an effective tool in pain relief during surgery, dentisty and childbirth and has been shown to facilitate people to overcome phobias, addictions and eating disorders. Here are some of the problems and conditions which can be treated such as: Stop smoking, Weight Loss, Anxiety/Panic Attacks, Phobias, Stress Management, Confidence Building, Self Esteem, Anger Management, Sports Performance, Test/Exam Nerves, Habit Changing, Help with Painful Memories/Grief, Relationship/Family, Problems, Sexual/Emotional Problems and Hypnobirthing.
Louise Segui has been my physiotherapist and more for 4 years. Louise has helped me both with situations when I have been under significant stress and also with physical conditions. I consider her to be my 'Total Body Therapist' because Louise has a marvellous sensitivity and picks up on all problems and helps you to think around your situations in life more positively. In short she is excellent and helps you to find answers to many different problems. It is so important to emphasize that Louise really does consider the whole person and this brings so much help to her patients with all aspects of their health and welfare. I have recommended her to many of my patients who have also found her very helpful.
I first contacted Louise in search of a pregnancy massage as my back was really painful. After the first visit Louise quickly established that I principally needed Reiki and she was so right........I continued having Reiki throughout my pregnancy right until the end and I have to say Louise was just amazing and pretty much got me through my pregnancy both emotionally and physically. I had been induced with my previous 3 pregnancies and was determined to go into labour spontaneously for my 4th so when my due date approached I had a couple of sessions in which Louise concentrated on activating Reflex points on the feet to naturally induce labour and a couple of days later I went into labour......during which I clung onto the 'Midwife' crystal that Louise had given me to support me during the birth. Whether it was the Reiki, the Reflex points on the feet, the Midwife crystal or the constant support from Louise and my doula but, I went on to have an amazing, unmedicated, home water birth which was literally a life changing experience! After falling in love with the whole idea of supporting pregnant and birthing women and the gift it gave me, I have since trained and become a Modern Day Doula and I happily recommend Louise to all my doula clients. I have also taken 2 of my children to see Louise for Kinesiology and it helped us establish why they were experiencing some physical and emotional issues, and put them right. Basically, Louise is our one stop shop for health and a beautiful person whose aim is purely to help.
I wanted my life to change... I've always felt that I was a seeker, but never satisfied somehow. There must be more to life than this? I used to ask myself. ..I'm a spiritual sceptic too, so when I did my level 1 Reiki I joked that my friend and I should create toshandpoppycock.com until I realised that it really did tap into something amazing. I am now about 7 years down the line and contemplating level 4. Reiki has completely changed my life for the better. I have been honoured to give Reiki at birth and end of life care; to children and adults; for emotional and physical reasons; and life is good because once you integrate it into daily life, it breathes through you and the sweet magic of life becomes available. It's not just about healing, it's about transformation, and in a time where we are changing so quickly, what better way than with this swift and efficient tool...
