We are sad to say that we will be closing at 6pm (23rd March 2020) tonight based on the most recent Government Guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak.
As a small business this is devastating for us but we have to do what is right for our Patients, our staff and their families.
We do appreciate that not getting your adjustments is a disappointment but we all need to stay at home if we can get through this as quickly as possible.
We can't thank you enough for all the support and love you have shown us over the years and for helping us continue of the last few difficult weeks. We do not take your friendship and custom for granted, you all mean the world to us and we can't express how much we will miss you during this hiatus.
We will be back as soon as we can be and we will be on the phone to get you all booked back in with us.
Please stay safe. if you need us you can email or phone. We will be picking up voicemails and emails periodically and will try get back in touch with you as quickly as possible.

In this practice, we use taping on its own, or in conjunction with chiropractic and soft tissue techniques. It aims to prolong the benefit of the treatment, by giving ongoing support, reducing pain, and aiding in rehabilitation. It is a commonly used modality by physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and massage therapists.
The tape can be applied in various patterns, directions, and tensions depending on what the chiropractor is aiming to achieve.
It can provide support and stability to joints and ligaments, and can be used to facilitate or inhibit muscles, all whilst maintaining the body’s natural range of motion. It can also be used to promote lymphatic drainage and circulation, decreasing swelling or bruising. The tape targets receptors within the somatosensory system, lifting the skin to create a small space allowing for lymphatic drainage and blood flow between the muscle and dermis layers.
It is also water resistant, so, most tapings will last between 3 and 5 days. It’s the pliability of the tape which allows it to stretch and bend with the body, in fact, many patients report that they forget they have it on!
