Can you tell me a bit more about your approach?

No treatment approach can achieve its full potential until you allow it into all parts of your being. A human being is a complex entity, composed of various “pillars”—the physical body, emotions, brain, and spirit—working together to create the experience of life.

Our holistic approach is highly effective, but it requires repeated application to fully integrate the therapeutic benefits into a person’s life.

In our experience, a person’s alignment often balances almost immediately after an adjustment. However, as they return to their usual lifestyle, old habits and thoughts resurface, causing the previous discomfort to return. With regular and repeated treatments, the individual can experience relief that lasts for hours, days, weeks, and eventually months. Persisting with consistent practice leads to a point where the body fully integrates the therapeutic benefits, achieving lasting healing. Change requires time and commitment, not intensity. There is no quick fix.

What do I need to know before we start?

If you’re new to our clinic, we have a simple booking procedure in place. We request all clients to complete this procedure, which includes paying a £30 deposit through a payment link to secure your appointment and filling out an online intake form. After completing this, you just need to turn up to your appointment in one of our three offices.

What happens on the first visit?

During your first visit, known as the initial assessment, we will spend approximately an hour with you. We will take a detailed case history and conduct a thorough examination to understand your condition. This evaluation helps us determine a working diagnosis and design a suitable course of care.

Before commencing any care, we will explain the recommended course of care, how it will improve your condition, and any associated risks or possible side effects. We won’t begin any care until we’ve obtained your consent.

How many sessions do I need?

The number of sessions required varies based on your specific condition, how you respond to care and your objectives. Sessions may occur one or more times per week. Patients with uncomplicated conditions often experience improvement within weeks. For those with complex or recurring conditions, an extended care plan may be necessary. Your progress and willingness to follow personalised health advice will also determine the duration of your care.

If you feel your condition hasn’t improved within a few weeks of starting care, we’ll discuss other possible care options or refer you to another healthcare professional.

What is the typical timeframe for the Chiropractic adjustment and Photobiomodulation Therapy to show results?

As a general guideline, noticeable effects often manifest after two to three weeks of regular treatment at the recommended frequency. However, this timeframe can vary based on several factors, including your body’s history, diet, mindset, and sleep quality, among other considerations. It’s important to understand that although you might “not feel anything” right away, your body and central nervous system are generating an adaptation and response to these therapies. Patience is key, sometimes effects might take longer to perceive, while others might come instantaneously.
