Acupuncture & Chinese Massage

Anneli Engberg

 

My name is Anneli Engberg and I am a Traditional Acupuncturist & Chinese Massage Therapist who has been in private practice for over thirty years. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council & adhere to its strict Codes of Practice and Ethics.

Mostly I treat with a combination of Acupuncture & Chinese Massage, but for those who prefer I will do one or the other. The principles of both are the same; to simulate the body's own healing responses & restore its natural balance as far as it is possible. 

My particular interests lie in working together with a client and as well as giving treatment, exploring what can be done to further help with the recovey. This may involve looking at dietary habits, posture, stretching exercises & how to reduce stress (for example). It all depends what is possible & practical for each individual.

Each person is unique, even if the symptoms are similar. The 'integrated' approach to acupuncture (TCM & Five Element) is done from a belief that an acupuncture practitioner is best equipped to treat someone if they understand both the illness & the nature of the person that is suffering the illness. 

 ~

Chinese Medicine has its own methods of diagnosis and treatment through balancing, cleansing and strengthening the body's vital energy systems. As our health starts improving our symptoms reduce in intensity. Acupuncture is suitable for all ages and can be used alongside conventional medicine.

Counselling

Kerry Griggs Dip MBACP

Training
I am a qualified Person centred counsellor. I work from a person centred foundation integrating other modes of counselling to suit individual client needs. I am also a trained and experienced Bereavement Counsellor (with Cruse). I provide both short and long term support to a broad range of clients.

Approach
As a person centred counsellor I believe the individual is the only true expert on themselves, at times it can be hard to hear the inner wisdom and guidance through the noise of modern life. We are all unique, so this means the person centred therapy does not have a pre made structure that we work to. Instead, my job is to get to know you, your wants/needs, and then work in ways that supports and meets your needs, choices and own self. 

 

So my service is by default a relational one, as this forms the building blocks of everything that follows.

I offer an environment built on compassion, a non judgemental attitude and warm authentic presence. Here you can discover meaningful insights about yourself, develop valuable life skills and move through periods of feeling stuck. Counselling is your space to explore and make sense of your inner world in safety.

 

I have experience of working with a range of issues such as:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Grief   

  • Relationship/Family difficulties

  • Domestic Abuse

  • Fears and Phobias

Homeopathy

As a fully qualified and insured homeopath, I am passionate about helping people be as healthy as they can be. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that helps the body heal itself. Through consultations we will explore how you are feeling and devise an individualised treatment plan to help you regain control for your health. Common reasons to seek homeopathic treatment include:

Fatigue                  Stress                     Anxiety                       Allergies                  Digestive issues                                       

       Post surgery concerns         Chest complaints and asthma         Eczema and skin complaints       Hormonal imbalance

 

Through an initial consultation I will aim to understand your symptoms and needs, before prescribing suitable homeopathic remedies. As part of your treatment we will also discuss any diet or lifestyle changes that would aid your health. Initial consultations are around an hour in length, with follow up consultations around thirty minutes.

When I am not consulting, or getting my head into a homeopathy book or webinar, I also work as a part time secondary school Physics teacher. I enjoy jogging with my dog around the local countryside, regular yoga sessions and seeking out any live music.

I can offer consultations on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the day, Saturday mornings, or other weekday evenings. Please contact me with any questions or to book an appointment:

Holistic Remedial Massage Therapy

I am a Sports Massage Practitioner, Natural Energy Therapist, Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Personal Trainer, Rehabilitation Exercise Therapist and Lecturer. This gives me a wide scope of practice and the ability to provide treatments tailored to what you need. 

My career in Therapy began 27 years ago when I first began practicing as a Sports Massage Practitioner. I progressed from clinical practice into establishing GP referral schemes in the Southwest. Here patients with long term injuries or illness could receive the support, advice, treatment and exercise they needed to aid their recovery or transistion to living with life altering illnesses or injuries.

I later branched into teaching as a lecturer with a leading Health and Fitness Training Company, sharing what I had learned from my 10 years in the industry. For 8 years I taught Sports Massage, Fitness and Personal Training courses until I established LifeCare Health, a place where I could bring everything together into a single facility. 

Natural Energy Therapy

Having worked as a multi-discipline therapist for many years, I recognise that spiritual energy has an essential role in recovery/healing, wellbeing and enjoyment of living. It works to bring the mental, emotional and physical into balance, helps us find peace within and thereby improving the quality of day to day life. Working with the young and elderly, mums and mums-to-be, with those facing life-threatening illness or busy lives needing time out to recharge, Natural Energy Therapy works alongside current medical procedures and pharmacutical practices supporting side-effects, shocks and traumas.

 

Lifecoaching

Life coaching aims to help people identify habitual life patterns that may be holding a person back from becoming all they can be. It supports people on a journey of self discovery to their strengths and abilities which can include being happy and fullfilled at home or work, managing health conditions, reaching their full potental or achieving life ambitions.  

Life Coaching helps you find the power within to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

AromaTouch Massage

AromaTouch is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along the energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body and bring about a more healthy energy flow.

This effective technique utilises eight individual essential oils and oil blends that have demonstrated profound effects on four conditions that constantly challenge the ability of the body’s systems to function optimally; stress, increased toxin levels, inflammation, and autonomic nervous system imbalance : so supporting the body to help:

  • Combat stress

  • Enhance immune function

  • Decrease inflammation and pain

  • Balances the autonomic nervous system

  • Support digestive and respiratory function

  • Brings balance and elevates mood.

The AromaTouch massage technique uses the wonderful doTERRA therapeutic grade essential oils and combines them with this special application touch technique.

The AromaTouch Technique uses specific guidelines and instructions for both dosage and application that make it a safe and effective way to receive the full benefits of essential oils.

Kinesiology & Nutrition

I am a fully qualified practitioner, completing the foundation with The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology in Bristol and diploma with The School of Advanced Kinesiology in London. I have an accredited certificate in Nutrition and Health. I am registered as a professional member of The Kinesiology Association.

Kinesiology is a safe, non invasive and holistic therapy that uses muscle testing to detect imbalances within the body. It uses a wide range of gentle, yet powerful techniques to correct, support and balance the body.

Muscle testing is a key component to its success, and is used as a tool to find and to highlight the root of the problem, and to indicate which areas of health to focus upon.

Kinesiology is helpful in addressing all aspects of health, including: structure, nutrition, energy and emotion. It is a natural, holistic and effective means of enhancing and maintaining good health and well being. It is not limited to treating specific ailments or complaints; in fact, most conditions can be helped.

I believe passionately that healthy eating is an essential and integral part in achieving optimum health and vitality. Through the combination of muscle testing with nutrition, and food sensitivity testing, I am able to devise a personalised nutritional plan, tailor made to meet their needs and goals.

Typically individual plans will include: nutritional supplements, dietary changes, relaxation techniques, exercises, lifestyle changes and more.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping)
and Reiki Healing

 

Margaret Cavanna is a Level 3 Advanced EFT Practitioner, Reiki Master and member of the EFT International professional body.

 

EFT can support men and women in working through many situations to achieve greater wellbeing and contentment including:

* Stress and anxiety – personal or professional

* Times of transition – in relationships, work or life stages such as the menopause

* Depression or lack of motivation

* Dealing with difficult medical diagnoses or physical pain

* Releasing long-held patterns that hold us back

* Facing uncertain times – connecting more deeply with our inner wisdom to cope more positively, connecting with others and with the joy of living

EFT is known as ‘energy psychology’ as it combines both.  You will be taught a sequence of tapping on several energy meridian points on the body mainly on the face and hands, whilst seated.  

The practitioner will also guide you in using phrases relating to your situation to help release unwanted feelings and beliefs.  Other techniques will be selected based on your needs and going at a pace that is comfortable for you.  

You can then use the basic sequence any time, although it is generally helpful to have several guided sessions to work on deeper patterns.

First session: £60  Further sessions: £55 (60 minutes). Combination of EFT & Healing (75 minutes): £70. Concessions available. Initial 20 minute phone consultation: Free
