We have over 20 expert therapists many of whom have areas of speciality within their field. This page gives some recommendations for common problems. For a full list of our therapists and their detials please click here.
PRE CONCEPTION / PREGNANCY / POST NATAL CARE
A team of practitioners within the clinic specialise in the areas of preconception, pregnancy and postnatal care. There has been a steady rise in demand for these services over the last few years through word of mouth, media and medical recommendation. Most treatments can be adapted to suit but in particular we would recommend acupuncture, osteopathy, reflexology, massage, shiatsu, nutrition and yoga.
BABIES AND CHILDREN
At Belsize Health we believe that good health should start early and we have several therapists who are trained and experienced in working with babies and children. The young often respond very quickly to treatment as they are usually more sensitive and their health problems are less long term. In some cases it may mean that a problem can be resolved without the need for prescription drugs. We would recommend baby massage classes, homeopathy, cranial osteopathy, herbal medicine and tuina for babies and toddlers. Older children can also benefit from reflexology, shiatsu and counselling and podiatry.
At Belsize Health we have several therapists experienced in treating cancer patients. We do not claim to treat cancer itself but to help with the side effects of conventional treatment and to help people cope mentally and emotionally through what can be a challenging journey. Treatments include reflexology, tuina, massage and counselling.
Our expert practitioners can treat a wide variety of skin problems including: acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, lichen simplex, urticaria, pityriasis and vitiligo. We would recommend both chinese and western herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutrition and podiatry. In addition we offer holistic facials to improve overall skin quality.
In the effort to keep ourselves fit and healthy, we sometimes overdo things or have accidents. At Belsize Health we have a team of professional therapists trained to deal with sports injuries to help you recover faster, prevent future problems and get you out there doing what you love. In
addition to treating injuries we have therapists to help you attain peak performance by working with your mental and emotional muscles! In particular we recommend osteopathy, podiatry, acupuncture, tuina, sports massage, yoga, feldenkrais and hypnotherapy.
LOW COST TREATMENTS
At Belsize Health we consider ourselves to be a community health centre and as such we aim to give as many people access to complementary care as possible. Since complementary medicine is not routinely available on the NHS we have a selection of therapies available to those on low incomes who would not otherwise be able to afford any treatment. If you feel this applies to you, please contact us to discuss your needs.
