Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment modality used in psychotherapy and health. A growing body of research now validates hypnosis as a highly effective tool for pain reduction, stress, anxiety, and a range of medical issues.

In the therapeutic relationship, clients access a peaceful state of internal focused concentration, which allows for creative insight and higher awareness — this state of focused concentration is not unlike the brain wave state that is achieved in deep meditation.

In clinical hypnosis, the client is in COMPLETE CONTROL of the process. Anything you’ve seen or heard about regarding stage hypnosis is nothing at all like what you’ll experience in a hypnotherapy session with our clinician. You’ll find clinical hypnosis to be an extremely effective and gentle, healing tool for change.

We integrate best practices in hypnosis with clinical counselling and coaching, and can assist clients in the following areas:

Habit Control
Public Speaking
Stress Reduction
Insomnia
Pain Control
Fears, Phobias, Anxiety
Core Belief Transformation
Forgiveness Work
Decision Making
Self-compassion
Resolution of Past Issues
Motivation and Performance Issues

Ultrasound Scans

ULTRASOUND SCANS

An ultrasound scan is a painless test that uses sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside your body. It is a very commonly used test. As it uses sound waves and not radiation, it is thought to be very safe.

At Remedies Clinic we offer all types of Ultrasound Scans at a very affordable price for all.

Ultrasound types we offer:

– Gynaecology
– Pregnancy
– Muscular Skeletal
– General Diagnostic (Breast, Abdomen, Prostate, Thyroid, Doppler US, etc.)

“Is it ADHD, or could it be Autism?”
“ is it both?”
“Could it be neither?”

TAASC (The team for assessment of attention and social communication) was specifically set up to answer questions that parents have about autism and ADHD. Every young person develops in a complex and unique way, so it takes multiple viewpoints to assess their behaviours or performance reliability.

TAASC offers an individual, tailor- made assessment pathway –based on current international standards- to answer the questions you or others might have about your son or daughter’s development. Although we are flexible enough to cater for individual needs, TAASC is principally structured along specific pathways to allow us to best reach conclusions about whether an individual has an Autism Spectrum Disorder or an Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

We will provide you with a copy of our recommendations, together with the expected costs of the recommended assessments, and we will arrange for sessions to be done in a timely manner. Different specialists will each complete their part of the assessment at at our multi- Disciplinary Team (MDT) meeting we will refer to international diagnostic criteria to reach a conclusion . The outcomes, as well as TAASC recommendations, will be discussed with you during a feedback session. The summary of the assessment and feedback will also be provided in the form of a report.

We will be glad to communicate our conclusions and recommendations to important stakeholders in your child’s development such as their school, or family doctor, and liaise with them as necessary. Similarly, we also offer a further interactive feedback session a few weeks after the end of the pathway for any new queries. Our commitment to you is to be a centre of excellence. We will always do our utmost to ensure that the quality of our service meets accepted and expected international standards, since we are sure that you require this from us, and indeed our children deserve nothing less.

TAASC consists of several, hand-picked professionals who are available to help your child as necessary, and to provide you with an assessment and individualized care plan that follows standardized protocols and meets international standards.

Ergonomics

Shaping the world to fit your needs, sounds like a bold statement -which we won’t make. But shaping your office to fit your needs is doable, especially when we have carried out extensive research in determining the optimal posture during prolonged sitting. What we emphasise is that expensive furniture might be good just for looks. With today’s technology we can identify what is wrong with your office ergonomics and provide you with the support required to make your work place more than just a productive place – it will also be pain free.

Excercise Therapy

Therapeutic exercise is any form of bodily movement that can be aimed at correcting impairment, reducing pain, improving musculoskeletal function or maintaining a state of well-being. It is also the most evidence-based approach in therapy with studies producing significant results in releasing contracted muscles, tendons and fascia, mobilising joints, improving circulation and respiratory capacity, improving balance and coordination, reducing stiffness and rigidity, improving exercise performance and functional capacity and obviously increasing muscle strength and power. It is therefore not an understatement when we assert that when given correctly and progressively exercise is one of the best tools in physiotherapy.

One of our lead physiotherapists possesses a master’s degree in exercise prescription for both the healthy individuals and for those that suffer from specific injuries and conditions. This is the reason why we strongly believe in our own exercise regimes and protocols since they are all heavily backed up by literature, knowledge and experience.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a needling technique that can be used to treat a wide range of conditions but it is mainly used for pain relief. It involves the stimulation of certain points within the body called acupoints that produce specific effects such as the release of certain chemicals within the body that are involved with healing or pain relief.

Acupuncture is a very useful technique with several benefits but only when applied safely and effectively. Our acupuncturists are fully qualified and certified and have been using these techniques for a number of years. In our clinic we treat the patient holistically, therefore our therapists usually use acupuncture as only one part of the whole program and not just on its own, as a result yielding additional strength to the overall approach.

Manual Therapy

 

Manual Therapy is a specialized branch of Physiotherapy. Pain in the body is often the result of tissues being too stiff or too mobile, impinged or irritated, weak or overused. The use of manual therapy is applied in both assessment and treatment of these conditions.

When a nerve is entrapped, it has to be released; when a neck or other joint is stiff it has to be released; when a muscle is tight, it has to be released, and when fascia is being pulled – it has to be released. This approach works wonders when preceded by a thorough assessment that a Physiotherapist will carry out on your first appointment – understanding the problem is often quite straightforward – Undermining the cause to that problem is where we excel.

Electrotherapy

  • TECAR
  • Laser
  • Shockwave
  • Ultrasound
  • Interferential
  • Combination Treatment
  • TENS
  • Magnet Therapy
  • Cryocuffs
  • Other electro-physical devices

Electrotherapy and physical modalities produce immediate and short-term benefits that can assist with earlier introduction of other longer-lasting techniques such as exercise therapy. On the other hand some of these devices produce certain beneficial effects that can only be obtained through them and cannot be achieved through the use of other methods.

The vast array of Electrotherapy devices that our physiotherapists have at their disposal can be applied to treat most conditions. With  such devices we can provide immediate treatment to minimize and eradicate inflammation, boost and accelerate the healing process, eliminate both acute and chronic pain, relieve spasms and resolve fibrotic tissue.
