What do Podiatrists do?

Podiatrists are qualified health professionals trained to diagnose, treat, and manage conditions of the feet and legs.

Healthy feet are important for everyone. Foot care is especially important for people with specific conditions such as diabetes, which can cause foot problems. It is also very important for infants and children whose feet are still developing.

Podiatrists treat general skin and nail problems, foot injuries, mechanical problems affecting the foot and lower limb, and complex foot and ankle problems.

No referral is necessary to access podiatry professional care services.

Occupational therapists also assess and recommend assistive technology/environmental modifications that assist individuals to engage in the occupations of everyday life.
Occupational therapists working in mental health help people to achieve the everyday activities that people engage in and find meaningful. They draw on a range of psychological and occupational therapy strategies to help people understand and cope with their daily function, productivity and capacity through the prescription of graded tasks and activities.
Occupational therapists in mental health use individual and group programs/activities to enhance independence in everyday activities. An occupational therapist may help to develop coping strategies for people overcoming their mental health issues or improving confidence and self esteem in social situations.

Hypnotherapy for Pain

Hypnotherapy for Pain

Pain is a protective mechanism designed to elicit behaviour change. When the brain determines something is wrong, it will send a warning message which will make us either physically or emotionally uncomfortable.

Pain is subjective and is not an accurate measure of physical injury. Sometimes habits are created by being in pain. These could be moods alteration, inactivity, comfort eating, focusing on the pain or having panic attacks.

For the international association for the study of pain of (IASP), pain as an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage.”

Unfortunately, millions of people suffer from pain and particularly chronic pain. Living with chronic pain can have significant impact on the quality of life.

How Hypnotherapy works for pain management

Hypnotherapy has been used for many years to manage different types of pain including joint pain, IBS, sciatica and chronic pain from injuries and illnesses.

Hypnotherapy for pain management can be used either alone or alongside medication. However, prior considering using hypnotherapy for pain control it is important to seek medical advice first for a medical diagnosis to eliminate serious medical condition that could be the causes of pain.

Sometimes pain feeling is a warning to get a correct diagnosis. If the pain is taken away the person might sustain further injury which might worsen the condition.

However, in some cases removing pain, might improve the quality of life and might be helpful for the patient. Examples of this would be dental pain, phantom limb pain, terminal illness, shingles, and surgery.

Hypnotherapy changes the way the client responds to the pain signal. In some cases, it can create more effective responses to medication by stimulating the brain’s analgesic response.

Weight management and Hypnotherapy

Weight management and Hypnotherapy

Controlling weight can be very difficult for some people.

Overcoming the mind obstruction can be challenging. Often people know what they have to do and can’t understand why they don’t.

This is why hypnotherapy can be effective.

Emotions, beliefs, values, memory, habits and the human operating system are in the unconscious mind.

Clinical hypnotherapy doesn’t replace healthy eating and physical activity, instead it assists in addressing the underlying barriers that prevent weight loss.

These barriers can be anything from lack of motivation, fear of exercise, to comfort eating or compulsive behaviours.

Clinical hypnotherapy and strategic psychotherapy can help changing the pattern the patient is running, associates the patient with its resources and dissociate from the presenting issue.

Gut directed hypnotherapy

Gut directed hypnotherapy

The gut directed hypnotherapy is a clinical hypnotherapy that uses hypnosis to reduce the patient’s IBS symptoms.

How gut-directed hypnotherapy works?

The mechanism of how gut-directed hypnotherapy works is not well known. However, pain is the most researched area of hypnotherapy.
In one hand, research has shown that hypnotic treatment of several chronic pain resulted in more pain reduction than other treatments such as medication, physical therapy or education.

In the other hand, significant body of research has shown that gut-directed hypnotherapy can reduce gastro-intestinal symptoms by 70 to 80%. More than that the results are long lasting and some research has demonstrated that individuals maintained the reduction of their symptoms for 5 years.

Research have also shown that gut-directed hypnotherapy can be as effective as low FODMAP diet. The individuals in this study had their gut symptoms improved without any change in their diet. Furthermore, the gut directed hypnotherapy had also improved their psychological symptoms such the stress and anxiety level.

The aim of the Gut Directed Hypnotherapy is to reduce the gut sensitivity and pain in people with IBS by toning down the signal being sent between the gut and the brain and restore a positive line of communication between the brain and the gut.
The patient will have to listen to the hypnotherapy recording every day as well as following some other exercises such as breathing and relaxation exercise.

Cranio Sacral Therapy

Cranio-Sacral therapy

Cranio Sacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on healing technique, whereby therapists gently mobilize and release the Craniosacral system, which includes the soft tissue of the head (cranium), the spine down to its tail end (the sacral area) and the pelvis. It focuses on the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, which is produced on a constant basis in structures within the brain.

The movement of spinal fluid within and around the central nervous system is believed to create a vital body rhythm, equally important to health and well-being as the beating of the heart or the breath.

Craniosacral Therapy helps to boost general well-being, reduce stress, improve quality of sleep, increase energy and enhance the functioning of all the body’s organs via the nervous system. It is a non-intrusive therapy that works with the entire structure, physiology, mind and spirit. For a treatment, clients usually lay on a massage table and the therapist works through light clothing. It is a very gentle and profoundly relaxing procedure that lasts between 40 to 60 minutes.

Craniosacral Therapy can treat a wide range of conditions and can be used to treat all age groups including babies and young children.

CranioSacral Therapy is Useful For:

Dry Needling

Dry needling
Dry Needling is a very successful medical and manual treatment which uses very thin needles without any medication (a dry needle) to achieve its aim. Dry Needling is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle problems, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems.
It is not at all the same as acupuncture. Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, whereas dry needling is a western medicine and myofascial technique. There is a clear scientific understanding of dry needling.
Dry Needling works by changing the way your body senses pain (neurological effects), and by helping the body heal stubborn muscle spasm associated with trigger points (myofascial effects). There are additional electrical and chemical changes associated with dry needling therapy which assist in the healing process. It is important to see the needles as just one part of your overall rehabilitative treatment.
Dry needling is not a miracle cure – it is a normal part of Manual Therapy. It is vital that you do the exercises and follow the advice your therapist gives you in conjunction with the needling. Application of heat and stretching are recommended for optimal recovery.
Charan Walia has been specifically trained in the various needling techniques.
Different length and thickness of needle are used depending on your condition and your body size, and then inserted it through the skin at the appropriate place. You will feel a small pinprick. Depending on the type of needle technique, you may also feel a muscle ache and a muscle twitch.
These are all normal and good sensations and mean that you will experience good relief from your symptoms.
In general, there is very little risk associated with this technique. You may have a little bruising around the needle site, much the same as you would with any injection. On rare occasions, people may feel very happy, tearful, sweaty or cold. These symptoms all fade quickly. There are no lasting ill effects of these side effects.

Resting Metabolism Measurement

Resting Metabolism Measurement

Mariame iraki provides the service of measuring the Resting Metabolic Rate. She uses the desktop indirect calorimeter with canopy using the dilution technique for accurate measurements of the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) in a clinical setting. The use of a ventilated hood makes the test highly comfortable allowing patients to breathe freely. The ventilated hood can also be used for long periods of time with minimal discomfort and no air leaks from the system. The accuracy of the equipment has been validated against the “gold standard” Douglas Bag.

The amount of energy required (calories per day) by each individual can be very diverse. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the daily amount of calories burned at rest to maintain vital body functions. The majority of the calories your body burns each day are those just to remain alive. In a sedentary person, RMR accounts for up to 80% of the total daily energy expenditure.

Measuring your individual metabolism (RMR), and estimating the energy required by your body to sustain your lifestyle and physical activity will help to know your daily energy expenditure. These three variables would help providing you with a scientifically recommended daily food intake based upon your individual metabolism. Like most health assessments there are certain guidelines you need to follow. To get an accurate Resting Metabolic Measurement, be sure to comply with the guidelines provided to you prior your appointment.
