THE BODY M.O.T.
In a two hour exploratory session a comprehensive screening of the body’s functions is carried out. Numerous tests are available but initially every client is assessed with the assistance of Biological Terrain Analysis and Electrodermal Testing.
A brief description of these tests follows.
BIOLOGICAL TERRAIN ANALYSIS
This test utilises an advanced computerised system to analyse urine and saliva samples. The information obtained relates to pH (acidity or alkalinity), oxidative processes (free radical activity) and electrical resistance (mineral status). From these readings we can gain an overview of the biochemical processes relating to the body’s metabolic activities and we can observe the relation between what is taken in and what is actually absorbed. The old adage ‘we are what we eat’ is much better expressed as ‘we are what we absorb’. Illness occurs when we have a deficiency or an excess (toxicity). The BTA test is highly efficient in revealing such metabolic imbalances.
COMPUTERISED ELECTRODERMAL SCREENING
To help a client achieve optimal health it is first necessary to find out which organs or systems are in a weakened or imbalanced state. Having done this, we have to establish which treatments are most likely to be effective in restoring balance. I have invested in a system which enables both of these things to be done with amazing speed and accuracy. Unlike my previous system, which used probes applied to acupuncture points to take readings, the ‘Asyra’ is totally automated and the client needs simply to hold two brass cylinders in the hands while the system carries out thousands of tests. Each test takes just minutes and the results are immediately available on the computer screen. Probeless testing is the first major advance in EDS for 25 years and enables a very large number of tests to be carried out infinitely more quickly while completely eliminating operator error. The Asyra can also be used to scan for suitable remedies, which can be any form of supplement, including herbal or homoeopathic items if the client has a particular preference. It has the additional capability of being able to ‘imprint’ a homoeopathic medium, whether pills or liquid, with appropriate remedies for the individual client.
For more detailed information on Asyra testing see the Asyra page on this site.
RESULTS & FOLLOW-UP
The results of these tests are immediately available as print-outs and you will have the opportunity to discuss the implications. On the basis of these findings the main aim is to supply you with an individually tailored remedial and preventive programme on which you will be able to start immediately. Experienced advice can be given about effective supplementation, diet, etc., and you can depend on ongoing support when it is needed, whether by e-mail or telephone. Clients are encouraged to attend for a second, shorter session within 1-2 months, to check on progress. An abbreviated repeat test is usually carried out, so that we can be sure the programme being followed is having the desired effect, or to make the necessary adjustments.
A number of treatments are available for test clients and for anybody else interested in addressing a specific problem, or just to maintain good health. The two most popular are lymphatic drainage and low level laser therapy.
A sluggish lymphatic system is remarkably common, and is at the root of many common disorders. Whilst manual lymphatic drainage can be very helpful it can also be quite uncomfortable as considerable force needs to be applied. With the use of an advanced piece of equipment called the LIGHT BEAM GENERATOR the whole experience is made quite gentle and relaxing and a far more complete result is obtained in a fraction of the time.

LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY
A tool that never ceases to amaze me. It can be used for a huge variety of musculo-skeletal and skin problems. This type of laser emits only cold beams, using light energy to stimulate cellular regeneration and repair. I use an Omega laser machine – their website gives lots of information about the applications:-
One of the most exciting pain relief systems ever invented. It works on the principle of bio-feedback.
An exciting new development. This is an extension to my Low Level Laser system, utilising cold laser light to break down fat cells completely without damage to other cells. The process is rapid, non-invasive and effective.
Offering help in situations where the quality of life is affected – such common conditions as fibromyalgia, polymyalgia, arthritis and back pain can often benefit.
PEMF and FIR TREATMENT
This is the latest addition to our range of treatments. Although Pulsed Electro Magnetic Treatment Therapy is by no means new, there has been considerable research into this form of therapy in recent years – in fact many thousands of scientific studies have shown its efficacy in treating a wide variety of health issues. NASA carried out a 4 year study into its effects on the body and in 2003 concluded that “Human cells that are exposed to Earth’s low frequency Pulsed Electo Magnetic Field grow faster and stronger”. Dr. Linus Pauling, double Nobel Prize winner, said “Every activity of our cells can only take place due to electrical impulses. PEMF is a benefit to mankind from the infant to the geriatric, and will lead to a change in the paradigm of medicine”. PEMF expert Dr.Gary Ryan, known as ‘The Energy Doctor’ explains the technology well: “Based on a lot of research that was done at Yale, it is apparent that just about any pathology in the body is preceded by a drop in electrical charge. Now we have technology that will reach down to the level of a cell that has lost charge and, due to the high intensity of the pulse, bring that pulse back to a normal or more normal situation, which allows it to replicate and produce a normal cell”. So the electromagnetic pulses of energy penetrate the body at the cellular level and the body then uses that energy to heal itself through its own natural mechanisms. This can have the effect of quickly addressing a slight imbalance or over time it can work to bring about a much more substantial change, such as restoring a sluggish organ system.
PEMF has been used to treat a wide range of health issues – to name a few:
Tissue pain and swelling
Back, shoulder and elbow pain
Our new treatment system goes even further, in that it incorporates FIR – Far Infra Red Therapy. A growing body of evidence supports this as a non-invasive health-promoting form of treatment, particularly in case of chronic pain and inflammation, as well as improving circulation.
The two treatments working simultaneously through a treatment mat on which the client lies provide a formidable healing combination.
We do not generally recommend the purchase of supplements from high street suppliers as the quality is rarely comparable with that of the professional grade items. Although, in the interest of freshness, we do not keep an extensive stock of supplements, we are able to give you contact details of our preferred suppliers and delivery is normally within a day or two of placing the order. It is occasionally possible to find a good quality professional brand in one or other of the better high street shops. Brands we recommend include:
ALOERIDE – Our preferred Aloe Vera supplement, which stood head and shoulders above 50 well known makes in independent laboratory tests, is available through the clinic – very attractive prices are available for bulk purchase.
