TIM SULLIVAN Lic. Ac, MBAcC, Dip Tui Na, Clin Cert Tui Na (Hangzhou),

Acupuncture and Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage)

Tui Na is a massage system that is integrated in Chinese Medicine. It provides effective treatment though a range of techniques, manipulations and intentions. Tim specialises in movement disorders, awareness disorders and issues arising from being identified outside of self. 

I am a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine, a fully qualified Acupuncturist, Reflexologist and Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage) practitioner with over 20 years experience in body work and massage. Classical Chinese Medicine uses 6 meridian systems that are described in the classic texts. Each system is capable of treating all conditions but each one from different angles that are helpful for getting at difficult or intractable conditions. 
I have been teaching Tui Na (Chinese medical massage) at LCTA, CICM and Leamington Spa. In addition, I teach postgraduate courses in classical Chinese Medicine, mainly on secondary vessels (sinew, luo and divergent channels). I am currently enrolled in the PhD program in America (AUCM) in Classical Chinese Medicine and have been a student of Jeffrey Yuen for the past 10 years.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine, one of the oldest forms of healing, uses whole plant preparations to treat illness and maintain good health. Almost any condition that someone might take to their GP can be treated. Common complaints include digestive or skin problems, gynaecological disorders, migraine, recurrent colds and flu, post viral fatigue, asthma, anxiety to name a few. The herbalist aims to find the cause of the problem and then chooses appropriate herbs to combine to create a unique prescription for that person. The safety record of herbal medicine by trained herbalists is excellent. Any age group can be treated and herbs can be used alongside conventional medicine.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a well proven system of natural medicine which uses remedies derived from plants, minerals and other natural substances to stimulate your body's self-healing capacity.

Homeopathy aims to treat disease at its roots, removing the cause of your illness as well as the symptoms. It has a wide scope of application and can be used to treat virtually any condition in the young and old alike.


I started training as a Homeopath in 1997 whilst working as a special needs teacher. I currently
work with a mental health charity and am interested in mental health and emotional problems in children and adults.

I also teach at the Contemporary College in Exeter and at a teaching clinic in Clapham.

Ray Vermiglio 

Acupuncture 

In my practice I use two different styles of approach. Traditional Chinese medicine, (TCM) and Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture. Both focus on identifying patterns of disharmony within the body’s energetic systems, and seek to treat the whole body and mind in a holistic framework, in an open and gentle healing manner.

 

My background interests include engaging in grass roots art projects using reusable material, permaculture design, playing musical instruments and singing. I feel my daily meditation practice allows me to bring a quality of presence into the treatment room.

Reflexology & Indian Head Massage

Reflexology is a treatment giving the body and its organs complete attention by working through the feet.

 This technique of detailed yet gentle stimulation of all pressure points offers relief for specific problems as well as complete toning and energy boosting for the organs in the body.

 I incorporate this with a deeply nurturing and relaxing foot massage which ensures a feeling of let and go and well being on the physical and mental level and an opportunity for the client to spend quality time with him/herself in peace and quiet.

 

I did my reflexology training in New York in 1990 and have worked with it ever since.

 I am also a Reiki master and have completed a course in Veda-balance Ayurvedic massage and Indian Head Massage

 I am also a meditation teacher.

Reiki Masters/ Teachers

Reiki means Universal Life Energy, the vital life force which flows through all living beings. A Reiki treatment is usually deeply relaxing and can be subtle or very powerful, depending on what one needs at the time, and can facilitate change. Reiki is hands on form of healing which is a nourishing treat to yourself and brings love, harmony and balance to Mind, Body and Soul- so go on 'treat' yourself!

Reiki is a great passion of mine it has helped heal and transform my life, enabling me to become more my true self and to trust my intuition. It is a healing meditation that is continually changing and evolving. A treatment is as much a joy to give as it is to receive. We give individual treatments but also work together, offering a very unique opportunity to have a Reiki from both of us. This 'Double Whammy' is proving to be very popular!

Val Belcher

Astrology

My name is Val and I have studied astrology since 1977.

There is much more to astrology than what you may read in a magazine, this is 'Sun sign astrology'

For a more accurate reading there is so much more to consider, like the time you were born, the place of your birth and where the Moon is in your chart along with all the other planets. Also what aspect were they making with each other when you decided to arrive on the planet. What is your rising sign? what house is your Sun in? what about Venus and Mars where are they in your chart? The answers to these questions actually mean something when reading a chart.

 If you book a chart reading could you please leave your date of birth, place and time of birth if you know it.

Pat Fletcher  

Usui Reiki Practitioner

(UK Reiki Federation)

Usui Reiki is a Japanese relaxation and healing process developed by Mikao Usui. The client remains fully clothed, either lying on a treatment couch, seated or standing. The practitioner places their hands non-intrusively in positions over the whole body.

Before treatment, clients are asked to be well-hydrated. At the end they share their experience.

 

My passion is health, fitness and wellbeing and I developed Living First therapies to help people stress less, and live more!

I’ll call you prior to your first appointment to discuss requirements, medical history etc...

Marc Wallach

Biodynamic Psychotherapy

Biodynamic Psychotherapy uses non-verbal interventions alongside more traditional verbal ones. Some painful experiences may be pre-verbal, too traumatic or just too confusing for the conscious mind to make sense of. At this point, relating with the physiological process of the body opens up new possibilities for insight, self-regulation and integration.  As a therapeutic tool, the massage is not just a sequence of movements on flesh and bone. A body is somebody, and the massage is directed by the needs of the client, meeting them at whatever state they bring. The feeling of being met through gentle, safe and responsive touch can have a profound effect on the nervous system that can leave one feeling cleansed and quieted. 

     Marc is a trainee psychotherapist registered with UKCP and qualified Biodynamic Massage therapist. He is also a philosophy teacher and school counsellor.
