Treatment Treatment Information
Naturopathy A drugless system of therapy, making use of physical forces such as air, light, water, heat and massage.
Neuro Development Therapy (NDT) Neurodevelopmental therapy is a non-invasive programme of movements which aims to promote development of the nervous system and the inhibition of primitive reflexes.  By incorporating movements which are used naturally by a baby and a young child, the nervous system is gently encouraged to mature and  become more open to learning.
Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP is the acromny for Neuro Lingusitic Programming.The goal-oriented approach to problem-solving and modelling success developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, characterised by a focus on structure and process rather than content.
Neurostructural Integration Technique NST is essentially a soft tissue osteopathic-style therapy, designed to remove pain, physiological dysfunction and even psychological imbalances, by restoring the structural integrity of the body
Nutrition/ Vitamin Therapy Advising on dietary and lifestyle changes required for the maintenance of good health
Phytobiophysics The PHYTOBIOPHYSICS® Mossop Philosophy is a philosophy of vibration; it is essentially an electrical therapy. Formulas, consisting of combinations of hundreds of essences of plants, all resonating on a specific frequency, are specifically matched with particular frequencies of the body’s various organs and systems; cellular structures, acupuncture meridians, emotions, toxins, and disease taints. This brings about an electrical rebalancing of the body’s energetic system and thereby facilitates our body’s innate ability to heal on a deep level.
Phytotherapy Phytotherapy is the study of the use of extracts from natural origin as medicines of health-promoting agents. Even though phytotherapy is usually regarded as "alternative medicine" in the Western countries, it is as well, when critically carried out, an essential part of modern pharmacognosy.
Pilates Pilates focuses on the core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced and which are essential to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and aim to strengthen the deep torso muscles
PNF Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation, and to that effect it is very effective. It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, and as well as increasing flexibility, (and range of movement) it also improves muscular strength
Polarity Therapists Polarity therapy is a "holistic" health system developed by Randolph Stone. Proponents believe that healing can be achieved through manipulation of what they describe as complementary (or "polarized") forces, and the term Stone borrowed from Chinese philosophy to describe those forces is yin and yang. Polarity therapy claims to work with putative (unmeasurable) energy, therefore it is pseudoscientific.
Postural Integration An alternative body-psychotherapy method, which attempts to help individuals to become aware of themselves in their body and empowering them to change their "bodymind" - their bodies, their emotions and attitudes. At a practical level, PPI is an active therapy in which the patient/client and practitioner (psychotherapist) interact to release blocked energy and to guide the development of awareness in both, thus enabling clients to increase their sense of well-being, their capacity to feel, their ability to express themselves, to develop their self-awareness and consciousness. It aims to restore unity of tissue, feeling and awareness by a direct manual, deep softening and reorganization of the myofascia which envelopes and coordinates the entire muscular system while simultaneously bringing together gestalt therapy, emotional release and expression, breathwork, movement awareness disciplines and bodymind drama into a single framework.
Psychology Psychology is an academic and applied discipline involving the phenomenological and scientific study of mental processes and behavior. Psychologists study such concepts as perception, cognition, emotion, personality, behavior, interpersonal relationships, and the individual and collective unconscious. Psychology also refers to the application of such knowledge to various spheres of human activity including issues related to daily life—e.g. family, education, and work—and the treatment of mental health problems.
Psychotherapy Psychotherapy is an interpersonal, relational intervention used by trained psychotherapists to aid clients in problems of living. This usually includes increasing individual sense of well-being and reducing subjective discomforting experience. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change and that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve group relationships (such as in a family). Psychotherapy may be performed by practitioners with a number of different qualifications, including psychologists, marriage and family therapists, licensed clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, and psychiatrists. Only psychiatrists may administer medical treatments outside of the scope of psychotherapy such as psychosurgery, prescribe medications or give electroshock treatments.
