Frequently asked questions

Will my treatment hurt?

In the case of Osteopathy you may have areas of soreness or a technique may feel uncomfortable, but it should not hurt. You may experience some stiffness and soreness after treatment, this may last for a day or two.

Massage and Reflexology can also cause a little soreness at the time and in the case of Massage it may continue the next day.

In Acupuncture the needle may cause a stinging sensation or you may feel a pinprick in the area that it is sited.

Chiropody may cause soreness on corn removal etc. but great care is taken not to cause pain.

If you have any concerns following your treatment, please call us for further advice.

How long will the treatment take?

Most first sessions are 1 hour long, however there are different appointment lengths for Osteopathy, Acupuncture and Homeopathy. Your confirmation letter will detail how long the appointment will be.

How many sessions will I need?

 This all depends on how long you have had the problem for and what therapy you receiving. Your therapist should discuss with you on your first appointment how many sessions they think you may need and explain the most appropriate interval between treatments. They will usually reassess this interval each time you visit based upon the progress that you are making. Sometimes you may only need one session whilst sometimes you may need a course. All decisions are taken jointly between you and your therapist. Our practitioners work in partnership with their clients and the care that you receive is tailored to your individual needs.

How much will treatment cost?

We aim to help you back to health with as few treatments as possible – this could range from 1 session to a course of treatment over a number of weeks. Each case is different so your therapist is the person to discuss this with.

See Our Prices for the cost of each therapy.

How soon can I get an appointment?

Our aim is to offer as much flexibility as possible when booking appointments. In addition to normal working hours we are open on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings for those patients requiring an appointment outside of normal working hours. We will do our utmost to book your appointment at the most convenient time for you.
