Chiropractic is a hands-on, drugless solution to many painful conditions. Although Chiropractors may use various techniques to help their patients they are qualified and skilled in applying specific and gentle spinal manipulation/adjustments.
In some cases x-rays or other tests may be performed before treatment begins to give more accurate information on the condition being dealt with.
Members of the British Chiropractic Association have to have obtained a four year full-time internationally accredited degree. Many thousands of hours practice is needed to achieve the required level of proficiency in Chiropractic technique.

Acupuncture: According to traditional Chinese philosophy, health is dependent on the smooth flow of energy through the body. Energy can become blocked for various reasons including, anxiety, anger, grief, poor diet, infection, trauma and hereditary factors. When energy becomes blocked or out of balance, ill health develops.
Traditional Chinese acupuncture treatment is focused upon re-establishing the normal circulation of energy to support the individual towards improved health. The acupuncturist takes a holistic approach and seeks to determine and treat the root cause of illness. Acupuncture is a safe, gentle treatment with a long established history.
Traditional acupuncturists have completed 3 years of training and members of the Acupuncture Society are committed to continual professional development and professional standards. .
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems and can be very effective for pain relief and in the treatment of stress and anxiety. Many people choose acupuncture because it helps them to feel more relaxed and healthy.
