We endeavour to provide a complete service under one roof for our clients, encouraging them to look after themselves and make the best of their lives within the confines of their condition. Therapy is not available within the Health Service, only in acute cases and then for short periods; it is proven that regular therapy is essential to prevent deterioration and to maintain and improve the condition. The integrated approach with core therapies and complementary therapies being provided under one roof enables people to receive the therapy needed.
Many people with MS are unable to travel easily so attending the Centre regularly for any of the therapies or services has the advantage over travelling to different clinics. Allowing clients to have these for minimal cost encourages regular therapy.
High Dose Oxygen Therapy (HDOT)
Oxygen is the healing element in the atmosphere and by breathing 100% oxygen under pressure allows the extra oxygen to be absorbed into the tissue. This repairs the damaged tissue before it becomes scarred. It is the scar tissue which prevents messages getting from the brain to the limbs etc. causing disability.

In reflexology, certain zones of the feet and sometimes the hand are stimulated by a practitioner. These zones relate to specific organs and parts of the body. Just by feeling the zones, reflexologists can detect problems in other parts of the body. By using finger pressure on specific points, healing is stimulated in affected organs.
