It is the gentle introduction of warm purified water into the colon via the rectum to release stored faecal matter. The aim of your treatment is to gently cleanse your bowel and by working in partnership with you address your bowel/health concerns. To help maintain a healthy digestive system/bowel and prevent the problem or problems re-occurring you will be given lots of advice on diet, nutrition and lifestyle. If people want to undertake further cleansing/de toxing you will be given further help and support.
Food Intolerance Testing
The equipment used is a Vega machine and the testing method is one of several used within the field of bio-electronic regulatory medicine (B.E.R). The test is non-invasive and painless. You hold a cylinder in one hand while a small sensor is placed on the surface of the skin on either the fingers or toes. Using ultra fine measurements and ampoules readings are taken and the results are instant.
When your test is complete you will be given nutritional information and guidance to support you in following your own nutritional programme. With some people a reduction and re-introduction program may relieve their symptoms. With others it may be that intolerances are an indicator of an underlying problem in which case further help may be required to address the symptoms.
Hypnotherapy is defined as a state of consciousness in which your logical mind relaxes sufficiently for your subconscious mind to be used for the benefit of your health. Hypnosis is gaining credibility as a valuable tool both medically and psychologically, with doctors often referring patients to qualified Hypnotherapists.

Neuro Linguistic Programming is a method used for identifying what you want and need, and a guided pathway to ensure you achieve it.
NLP gets your mind and body working together to achieve ambitions and better health by allowing you to try something different and take control. You can acquire different skills attitudes and emotions.
NLP uses models of successful people in a variety of disciplines to improve positive thinking to achieve what you desire.
Transformational Therapy establishes where you are now, and identifies where you would like to be; and how to get there by transforming your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Transformational Therapy provides guidance to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve or how you would like to feel, this is used for for the benefit of your health and wellbeing.
Reflexology is a holistic, non intrusive complementary therapy which works on the discovery that there are relationships, called reflexes, between the feet and hands and all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. By gently stimulating these reflexes it works with the body’s natural healing efforts and assists well-being in a safe and natural way. This treatment can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies onwards.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is the only form of psychotherapy to have been scientifically researched and approved by the NHS. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT for anxiety.
CBT concentrates on the present and future without unnecessarily delving into past events. Our feelings and behaviour result from our thoughts and emotions following an event or situation. CBT is a 50/50 treatment between you and Ken and gets you thinking differently about an event or events in your life.
With CBT, you recognise you can’t change people or events but you learn to change how you feel about those people or those events. You change when you learn how to think differently.
Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy.It is a gentle, non-intrusive, hands on, natural healing technique originating from Tibet. In the early 20th century Dr Mikao Usui a Tibetan monk re discovered the techniques of using Reiki healing energy. He devoted his life to healing others and passed on the teachings of Reiki in later life.Dr Usui studied many different faiths and traditions, therefore, Reiki is not connected to any religion or faith. It is based on the premise that a universal energy system permeates all living things. When a Reiki practitioner connects to this energy and places their hands upon a person this energy flows to areas of need assisting the bodys natural self healing mechanisms.
