Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Janette Baker-Watts

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of a hot stone massage knows the intense feeling of relaxation and healing it provides.  

But do you know that there are long term, lasting benefits of hot stone massage?

A hot stone massage combines thermotherapy with massage techniques to provide an effective healing therapy to the body and mind.  The use of natural besalt stones which are high in iron retain heat within the stone and are used in conjunction with massage techniques to help the patient heal. The heat from the stone increases circulation of fluids through muscle tissue and spaces in the joints.  Combining the heat with deep tissue movements creates a powerful detoxifying and invigorating treatment.

Some of the medicinal benefits of hot stone massage include:

Migraine Awareness Week - Have you tried Chiropractic?

Migraine Awareness Week

Migraine is not just a headache, it can be relentless; an intense pounding and throbbing pain that can steal your energy and ability to function. 

Migraine is the most common neurological condition affecting people of all ages, social classes, races and culture. During Migraine Awareness Week 7th - 13th September 2014, the United Chiropractic Association is highlighting the benefits of Chiropractic care in both the prevention and treatment of migraine headache.  Migraine is usually managed by medication but some patients do not tolerate acute and or prophylactic medicine, whilst other people may wish to avoid medication, Chiropractic is an alternative that should be considered.

To fully support this cause our Chiropractors will be offering FREE new patient consultations to any person presenting with Migraines during Migraine Awareness Week.

Stay Hydrated and Healthy

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Stay Hydrated & Healthy

Did you know that around 60% of our body weight is made up of water? It is an essential element that your body can’t produce.  You can survive for weeks without food, but only a couple of days without water, unlike camels, we aren’t lucky enough  (depending on how your look at it) to be able to store water in humps. 

Water is responsible for the transport of nutrients, oxygen and waste products, as well as regulating your body temperature, so getting enough fluid each day is important for good HEALTH.

How much water should you drink?

If you guessed the answer was 2 litres, you are not far off, but this may not be right for everyone. 

The ideal amount is actually ½ your body weight in ounces of water per day

Weight =7 stone (98lbs) you should drink 49 oz of water (1.4 litres)

Homeopathy and Hayfever

Health Transitions

Hay fever is a sign of imbalance in the immune system and often causes a  significant disruption in the life of a sufferer. Allergic conditions generally respond quite well to homeopathy and treatment during an allergy attack can show amazing results, often bringing relief for the rest of the current season. Hay fever can be quite persistent, returning year after year, and we can only stop this cycle with constitutional treatment from a professional homeopath when the sufferer is not in the throws of fighting off the acute attack. Certain remedies have been shown to work well when hay fever is at a peak and are completely safe to use as they are free from side effects. Can you match your symptoms to one of the following remedy pictures?
