Dry needling is a method of pushing the infected cells from the epidermis into the lower skin layers (dermis) and fat layer (adipose tissue). This is then much more likely to trigger an immune response and resolve the infection.
We have performed many of these procedures with good results and high patient satisfaction.
Occasionally something can cause a toenail to grow downwards into the toe instead of outwards as normal. When this happens it can become painful to walk on that foot and the toe can become sensitive and swollen. In minor cases, a toenail can be treated without surgery but sometimes the condition will need surgical treatment. As the NHS is often unable to provide these types of treatment promptly, many patients look to the private sector to have their toenail treated. At ouir clinic you can be seen quickly by an experienced podiatrist with specialist training in surgical procedures.

Reflexology based on the principle that there are reflex points on the feet that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. A treatment involves massaging and manipulating these areas on the feet to encourage relaxation and the easing of tension by encouraging the free flow of energy. It may help systems of the body in order for them to complement and aid one another to re-establish the homeostasis on physiological, psychological, and spiritual levels.
