Amanda Crawshaw – Balance Natural Health

Therapies We Offer


Acupuncture offers a safe and effective treatment and can be used to restore balance and energy (Qi) within the body and mind.  From its origins in the East over 3,000 years ago as Traditional Chinese Medicine, it has spread worldwide and gained recognition in the West as a valuable complementary medicine, and that it can also be an integral part of conventional medicine.

Recent studies carried out by the University of York have shown that acupuncture can have a significant effect within the brain and how it processes pain.  Conventional medicine now recognises the benefits acupuncture can offer, and evidence-based research can show the effectiveness of acupuncture relieving certain conditions, such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Dental pain
  • Tension-type headaches
  • Migraine
  • Knee pain associated with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Homeopathy & Functional Nutrition

Homeopathy is a safe and supportive therapy that stimulates the body’s innate response to balance itself. Developed over 200 years ago it is based on the principle that ‘like cures like’ – a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.

Homeopathy involves treating the individual with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms and personal health, a homeopath will match the most appropriate remedy to each patient.  This complementary therapy is safe and suitable for all age groups.  It can be used by everyone and is specifically safe to use for babies, children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.  Homeopathic medicines are non-addictive and have no dangerous side-effects.  It can be used with a wide range of conditions impacting physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.  Homeopathic practitioners often see patients with long-term, chronic problems, many of which have failed to respond to conventional medicine, such as:

  • Skin complaints
  • Fatigue
  • Hormonal and urinary problems
  • Headaches
  • Digestive Issues
  • Joint problems
  • Stress and other emotional issues

As a system of medicine, homeopathy is designed to treat the whole person and can therefore be considered in almost any situation where a person’s health is impacted.

Functional Nutrition addresses the underlying cause of disease from a nutritional level. Supplementation, allergy elimination, dietary changes and detoxification support the body to function optimally.

Addressing nutritional issues when using homeopathy removes any blocks that deficiency, allergy, and toxicity can create, preventing homeopathic remedies from working, as they need to.

Osteopathy utilises a patient focused, physical approach to restoring, maintaining and promoting physical and psychosocial wellbeing.  Osteopathy is a highly skilled and regulated manual medicine.  Your body must move to survive.  When you have persistent pain or discomfort it is because something is stopping your body from working normally and healing itself.

Osteopaths assess your body’s mechanics and use hands on massage or gentle articulation to restore movement to the problem area.  This eases pain and reduced inflammation.

Osteopaths are best known for resolving back problems, but we treat the whole body.  The founding principle of Osteopathy, which makes it different to other therapies, is that it finds the root of your problem.  It can successfully resolve chronic or recurring problems anywhere in the body and can be used safely during all stages of pregnancy.

Osteopathy can help with several issues:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Hip and pelvis pain
  • Knee and ankle pain
  • Arm and wrist pain
  • Muscle strain
  • Ligament sprain
  • Rheumatic and arthritic pain
  • Headaches
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Aches and pains during pregnancy
  • Postpartum postural complaints

Pain is a common problem, but you don’t have to put up with it. There is a drug free, gentle approach, to being pain free.  Our Osteopath, Katherine, will provide you with a comprehensive assessment, tailored treatment, and advice and she will get you back to peak health.

Nutritional Therapy

Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and determine people’s response to changes in the environment.

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. It is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools based on functional medicine principles to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.

This approach allows them to work with clients on an individual level to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.

Practitioners consider everyone to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes based on each person’s circumstances, rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional.

They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

Reflexology works on the principle that there are various points on the feet which reflect different areas in the body. When pressure is applied to these points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, helping to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.

As well as being a relaxing and uplifting treatment, Reflexology has a growing clinical reputation and may be used to support a wide variety of health issues, such as:

  • Migraines
  • Menopause and Menstrual symptoms
  • Kidney Stones
  • Arthritis
  • Fertility
  • Hormonal
  • Digestive
  • Anxiety

A treatment lasts 60 minutes. Within this, an initial consultation will take place to learn about you and your specific reasons for the treatment. A treatment plan will be tailor made for you and the reflexology will begin. Pressure will be applied to all areas of the feet and ankles. A discussion about the therapist’s findings from the treatment, after care and follow up treatments will end the session. Oil/cream can be applied to the feet at the end of the treatment.

Full Body Massage

Massage is well known to aid in the relieving of everyday anxiety and stress, helping relaxation, aiding sleep, promoting a sense of well-being. A treatment lasts 60 minutes. An initial consultation takes place followed by the treatment, working on the back, legs, arms, stomach, neck and face. Pressure is suited to your particular requirements, for instance a lighter pressure can induce relaxation and often sends a client to sleep. Firmer pressure can work on particular areas of tension/knots. Oils/creams will be used for this treatment.
