Our continued personal development
Whilst we are unable to open at present, we’re still keen to take full advantage of the spare time to really work on our personal development. When we are allowed to finally reopen, we’ll be ready to offer you the same value and professionalism across our existing and new disciplines!
As a little taster: Mandy has been studying Spa Reflexology and Advanced Hand Reflexology which will be available soon. And I have been studying Sports Massage Level 5 and an Initial Teacher training Level 3 Award in education and training.

Well done Mandy!
Reflexology in Dursley, Stroud and Gloucestershire
Congratulations to Mandy on passing her final exams in Reflexology! Well done Mandy, all the hard work paid off as she passed with a distinction! Not many people gain that pass level although I did as well ;-). So as from now, we can offer reflexology treatments. Contact us to find out more and to make your first appointment.
Dry Needling now available
Dry Needling and Medical Acupuncture is now available here as I have just completed the Dry Needling practioners course.
Dry Needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle).
Dry Needling is a not the same as acupuncture, although there are similarities between the two techniques. The main difference between Dry Needling and acupuncture is the theory behind why the techniques work. Dry Needling is primarily focused on the reduction of pain and restoration of function through the release of myofascial trigger points in muscle. In comparison, acupuncture focuses on the treatment of medical conditions by restoring the flow of energy (Qi) through key points in the body (meridians) to restore balance.

Reflexology coming soon
From February 2020 we will be offering reflexology when Mandy joins the team after the initial exam date had to be postponed. Contact us for more information or to book an initial appointment.
We can now offer dry needling!
What is dry needling?
Dry Needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle). Alwyn is now fully qualified after completing a course in Medical Acupuncture and Advanced Dry Needling.
Dry Needling Course
We love to continue to provide you with the latest treatments – so in September of this year, I am embarking on a CPD course in dry needling. For those that don’t know – the dry needling technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. This treatment is known to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Research also suggest that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalises nerve impulses. This can help improve the patient’s return to active rehabilitation. Wish me luck!
Miach Qualifications update
In March this year, I requalified for both St Johns ambulance first aid in the work place, and AED (Automated External difibulation). These qualifications are valid for the upcoming 3 years – we take workplace safety and wellbeing very seriously 🙂
