Chalfont wellness nutritional therapy

Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy and Naturopathic Medicine looks at more than just food. The discipline interprets the nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism and how these can be used to restore health and improve immunity. 

Nutritional Therapy considers food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion. More recently developments in genetic testing allow for more in-depth diagnostic tools for practitioners.

Many bodily functions can be compromised at any age through various forms of stress (e.g. foetal development before birth, caesarean sections, work, familial, relationships, environmental factors).

The discipline considers people as individuals and understanding how food, herbs, genetics and natural medicine techniques such a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Homeopathy, and Iridology (analysis of the genetic footprint in the iris) can heal us.

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Spider naevi, blood blister laser treatments.

Laser - Spider Naevi/Blood Blister Treatment

A slightly raised lesion on the skin where small dilated capillaries come up to the surface of the skin and form a red central spot from which blood vessels stem away. 

Laser penetrates through the skin and into the central point of the spider naevi where blood is accumulated over time. The heat cauterises the “dead” veins which would then disperse into the lymphatic system. Minute scabs can form after a couple of days and healing can take up to 10 days. 


 

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Laser skin tag treatment.

Laser - Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, harmless skin growths that often appear under the eye area, groin, armpits, neck and eyelids as well as other places on the body.

Skin tags are flesh-coloured projections that appear as small protrusion of hanging skin growths. Most skin tags are either smooth or irregular in shape.

Laser penetrates the skin of the skin tag, raising the temperature, thus causing enough heat to destroy the roots and gradually shrinking the body of the skin tag. The Skin tag will appear shrivelled and darken in colour. After a couple of days a scab can form and eventually fall away from the skin without causing trauma to the surrounding area.


 

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Laser thread veins treatment.

Laser - Thread Veins

Spider / thread veins (also known as telangectasias) are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. Although they can occur anywhere on the body, they are most commonly located on the face, around the nose area and legs. Colour of these veins can vary from red, blue or purple so several sessions maybe required depending on the colour and depth of the thread vein.

 Laser raises the temperature of the blood vessel and safely coagulates the spider/thread vein. The cauterised veins gradually shrink and after a couple of days, minute little scabs can occur. Once the scabs drop off, the veins may become less visible or disappear altogether.


 

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. milia removal treatment.

Milia Removal

Milia are often mistaken for whiteheads but are a collection of small white spots commonly known as milk spots. They are tiny cysts made up of excess build-up of keratin, which is natural part of the skin, also found in nails and hair.

Milia removal is performed using a fine, sterile needle. Once the skin has been cleansed, the needle is then inserted into the body of the cyst creating a small opening. The contents of the milia are then carefully extracted out, so as not to cause any trauma to the skin.

Skin can be left with redness and slight inflammation but that will calm down soon.. A minute scab can occur after a couple of days.


 

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Electolysis.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis is an FDA approved therapy for permanent hair removal. This treatment is an alternative to laser hair removal.  Electrolysis works well on light, blonde, grey or white hair on the face and body.

Each individual hair is treated by inserting a tiny surgical probe into the hair follicle and directing an electrical current that heats and destroys the hair’s root, which prevents further growth. The hair is then lifted out of the hair follicle with tweezers.

Electrolysis isn’t a one off treatment, so after several repeated sessions, the hair is left weaker, thinner and finer and eventually the growth doesn’t grow back again.


 

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Soprano laser hair removal.

Soprano Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a quick procedure which uses powerful laser energy to prevent hair growth. It works by emitting a laser that passes harmlessly through the client’s skin and into the hair follicle. The targeted hair follicle is then heated and damaged, thereby inhibiting any future hair growth.

Some clients might feel a mild prickling sensation but the majority experience pain-free laser treatment.

We carry out a consultation and patch test on the skin, which allows us to check to see if your skin is suitable for laser.  A small area is tested to ensure that there are no adverse reactions. The skin may appear slightly red straight after the patch test, however this calms down very quickly.

Laser works best on hair growth that is dark and coarse. Popular areas to treat are the face, legs, arms, underarms and bikini line. Treatments can take between 5 to 8 sessions.


Conditions addressed include:

  • Hypo or Hyper Thyroidism (and related symptoms especially in females)
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic Fatigue

Wellness Centre in Little Chalfont and Amersham. Osteopathy and advanced Perrin Therapy

Osteopathy And The Perrin Technique

Osteopathic treatment is based on the principle that no part of the body exists in isolation and that the primary focus on the musculoskeletal system (the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues) is a key component of overall health and wellbeing. Osteopaths believe that for your body to work well, its structure must also work well, for the aim of the treatment is to restore the body into a state of balance. 

Osteopathic diagnosis involves examining muscles and joints using touch, observing posture and the patient’s range of movements to detect and diagnose any abnormalities within the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy treatment includes a combination of muscle and connective tissue stretching, joint articulation, gentle traction and manipulation, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, cranial techniques, exercise and postural advice depending on what the individual requires.

The Perrin Technique

The Perrin Technique is a specialist osteopathic technique which has been continuously developed over the last 30 years by Dr Ray Perrin as a diagnostic tool and treatment approach for CFS / ME.

The Perrin Technique is based on Dr Perrin’s theory that different stress factors whether that be physical (through postural problems or injury), infectious (bacterial or viral), environmental (exposure to toxins or allergies), emotional stress (work or family) or more usually a combination of these which leads to an overload on the sympathetic nervous system. This in turn results in a build-up of toxins in the fluid around the brain and spinal cord.

The Perrin Technique treatment uses an osteopathic approach designed to manually stimulate motion of the fluid around the brain and spinal cord to encourage better drainage of the lymphatic system. It involves gentle manipulation of the soft tissues and massaging the head, neck, back and chest areas. This promotes healthier functioning of the sympathetic nervous system and the lymphatic system which together helps to alleviate physical symptoms and stressors. Providing the patient doesn't have significant extra stressors over time they should gradually improve and many return to full health and become totally symptom free.
