Other Therapies

As well as offering a comprehensive chiropractic treatment, Cornwall Chiropractic Clinic also offers complementary therapies which focus on overall health and well-being. These treatments can work alongside chiropractic or completely separately.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a wonderful way to deal with stress, fears, phobias and addictions. A safe and effective therapy, hypnotherapy brings about a deep state of relaxation, which we all need from time-to-time. In a nutshell, hypnotherapy can ease any problem you’re finding it hard to handle on your own.

A course of treatments can help you clear your mind and learn to relax, enhancing your life and assisting you in making life changes.

The Story of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy has been used for healing by ancient cultures and civilisations for over 6,000 years.

Documents from the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Indians, Chinese, Persians and Sumerians show extensive studies in hypnosis, altered states of consciousness and parapsychology. Hypnosis was considered as a cure for many physical and emotional ailments and disorders.

Holistic Therapies
Massage heals through touch, helping ease muscle tension and improve posture, as well as making us more aware of our bodies. Many of the benefits of massage come from the contact between the practitioner and client.

Talking Therapies

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling usually focuses more immediate, present difficulties that can be resolved relatively quickly.  It is generally a shorter term treatment.

Psychotherapy on the other hand tends to take longer and gives you more time to consider your past history and explore it in more depth.  It will help you to address places where you are getting stuck in old patterns that are impacting your current wellbeing.

Couples Counselling

Sometimes couples can get into habits of how they behave towards each other.  This can lead to tension and sometimes difficulties that feel unresolvable.  A therapist can help you recognise these patterns and support you to communicate with each other.  This can lead to a happier relationship where you both feel heard, respected and valued.

EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing)

Although not strictly speaking a talking therapy, I will take a detailed trauma history before using this technique.  EMDR is a NICE recommended treatment for trauma’s and phobias. It is as effective as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for PTSD and is believed to help you to move stuck trauma memories into the part of your brain that can process them.
