The term supporting services covers a range of healthcare services that enhance your sense of wellbeing and recovery when you need it most.
Our supporting services can be used as standalone services but usually they work alongside other existing medical treatments and care together to treat various medical conditions.
The body is interconnected in so many different ways; treatment to one part can influence another part. Some health conditions and certain medications impact a range of areas of the body simultaneously. It can therefore be beneficial to consider committing to a combination of treatments for an effective treatment plan.
A holistic approach to recovery can be highly effective in preventing and treating health conditions. The right combination of treatments can look after the health and wellbeing of the body as a whole.
We always have time to listen

Dietitians are experts in food and help promote nutritional wellbeing, prevent nutrition-related problems and treat disease. Altering your diet can be tricky without help, especially if a sudden diagnosis has forced you to focus on what you are eating, such as diabetes, cancer or an organ failure. Even if that’s not the case and you have a specific goal in mind such as weight management, muscle building or IBS management, dietetics can help with a breadth of problems.Learn more
Understand your body
Holistic health looks at the whole person and involves multiple complementary medicines that can be used in conjunction to modern-day Western medicine.
Understanding what works for your body is essential.
Those wanting a more natural, drug-free approach to treatment may consider our supporting services for diagnosis and prevention of current and future illness.
Holistic and homeopathic medicine are not the same thing. Holistic medicine is the umbrella term used to describe a variety of services that aim to treat the person as a whole. Whereas, homeopathy is the system based on the belief that the body can heal itself and homeopathic medicine is typically made from natural substances such as plants and minerals. Some holistic medicine may use homeopathic medicine within their practice.
Take stress for example. You might visit a GP if you are suffering from stress and they might recommend some lifestyle changes, possibly prescribe you something or refer you to a psychiatrist. In addition to this, you might consider a dietitian to advise on foods that are beneficial for reducing stress or seek a meal plan to curb “stress eating”. Alternatively, you may see the acupuncturist, which is proven to reduce stress. Or perhaps you have a tight back or tension in your neck because of stress, which an osteopath can help resolve. All these services can work together to maximise your chances of being successfully treated.
