A health centre in Bedford is now offering brand new treatments and massage techniques to help treat health problems, particularly stress and anxiety.
The Bedford Integrative Health Centre, based on St Loyes Street, recently celebrated its one year anniversary and offers a range of health treatments all in one location.
The Centre offers osteopathy, counselling and nutritional therapy and has recently been joined by a reflexologist and holistic massage therapist in order to tackle a variety of health conditions. From January next year the centre will also welcome a new counsellor Wendy Meniru.
Nichole La Grange, the centre’s new complementary therapist, has joined the team at BIHC to treat patients with Swedish massage as part of her holistic massage approach.
Holistic massage therapists treat the person as a whole and consider the relationship between the physical body, the mind and emotions.
Nichole combines this approach with a Swedish massage, which uses five types of strokes including sliding, kneading, tapping and shaking to help reduce pain, joint stiffness and improve function in patients suffering from osteoarthritis.
The centre is also pleased to announce reflexologist Esther Ramsteiner is now part of the team. She specialises in a variety of conditions including asthma, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, sinus problems, digestive problems, back pain and stress.
Reflexology involves applying pressure to specific areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas correspond to specific organs and systems within the body and that applying pressure can help improve a person’s health.
The Centre seeks to offer specific help to patients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (MS) by combining osteopathic, nutritional and counselling therapies.
