Helping you EAT, MOVE and THINK your way to better health

Once you have explored the variety of complimentary therapies you may find you are hooked on one that can become part of your daily life.
This will often lead to changes in your diet, For example, tea doesn't always need to be the usual black stuff. Making your own with herbs and spices can be great for your digestion, stress or simply relaxing.
What's happening at the practice...
We have been a teensy bit busy of late with us all missing Jo and, of course, we are still eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newest team member-to-be. To keep things running smoothly, Estelle has adjusted her hours and will be working as follows:

Monday afternoons | all day Tuesday | Wednesday morning
all day Thursday
| 11am to 3pm Friday.

Ros and Tracy will take your entries. We have four pages so far, so in line with the news theme this month, we are adding a massage voucher to the prize along with some glorious Gareth James Chocolates.

Not just for spa days and holidays...__
For many of us, a trip to a spa is something we only do if we are abroad or as a special treat. However, there are many benefits to complimentary and alternative therapies so it's worth considering how they can help you on a regular basis.
We are raised to believe that at the first sign of trouble we head to the doctor and, quite often, that is the best course to take. Yet more and more people are looking to alternative therapies as both a preventative solution and a resolution. Chiropractic was – once – regarded as off the wall, but modern research has shown that it, along with other therapies like osteopathy, massage, acupuncture and homeopathy, are valid approaches to overall health care.
What makes these alternatives so important is their approach. Traditional medicine treats specific symptoms and problems with the aim of a cure while alternative healthcare focuses on cause and prevention, aiming for total body health. Many of these are non-traditional and use natural products that compliment the treatments we are offered by the NHS, for example.
Naturally, we are great believers in this approach so we have our own, much respected team of complimentary therapists on hand. You can meet, Jan, Clare, Hannah and Catherine here. Bookings can be made online or call 0191 259 6777.
Making your own herbal teas..._
All these recipes can be made then sipped hot or kept in the fridge to use as a cooling tonic. They will all need straining, or make smaller batches in a cafetiere!
Mint and lemongrass for digestion: bruise then chop 6 fresh lemongrass stalks, add 6 big sprigs of fresh mint and cover in boiling water. Infuse for 10 minutes.
Liquorice root and cinnamon for destressing: add 4 tablespoons of liquorice root, a cinnamon stick and an inch of sliced fresh ginger to a jug then add a litre of boiling water. Infuse for 20 minutes. Add honey to taste.
Turmeric, ginger and chilli tonic acts as anti-inflammatory: grate a 2 inch piece of both fresh turmeric and ginger and chop half a chili. Add a spoonful of honey and 3 cups of water. Heat then leave to steep until cool.
