What happens in a session?
At the first consultation you will be asked about all your current and past health conditions and if you are taking any medication prescribed by your GP. A whole Health History will be taken.
If you arrive with a physical injury/sports injury or back problem, we will usually assess for range of movement, pain levels, your anatomical structure and any deviations, before planning any course of treatment. Once an overview has been made, we will commence treatment.
Gentle rolling type moves are made by the thumbs, over muscle, tendons and soft tissue. During the treatment there are a series of short breaks, where you will be left to rest, allowing your body to respond to the moves made. The rest period is an important part of the treatment and gives the body time to make the subtle and fine adjustments.
How much is a Treatment?
Treatments cost £99 per block of 3 sessions pre paid.

Nutritional Therapy Programmes
Need some fresh ideas... some nutritional advice to get you started... inspiration... or a whole body programme?
Is this you?
These are all affected by the health of the cells in our bodies.
If our cells have inadequate essential nutrients, our health can be damaged. Our health is affected by our eating habits, by inadequate sleep, by high levels of stress and by the toxins and anti-nutrients to which we are exposed through our air, water and food.
A nutritional therapy programme at The Ki Clinic can help you deal with these issues.
Nutritional therapy provides expert advice to identify the changes you need to make, and ongoing personal support to help you achieve them.
What Happens at your first Appointment?
Nutritional therapy is an in-depth holistic investigation into your current health issues. At The Ki Clinic we run thorough nutritional health assessments. We ask you to complete a detailed health questionnaire and food diary, we discuss your symptoms and history, and we run basic physical checks. We run specialist tests to check nutritional and functional imbalances - to see what is working well and what is not.
Afterwards, we give you a report with our recommendations for dietary, food supplement and lifestyle changes - designed specifically to help you towards optimum health. We follow up with periodic reviews to monitor your progress.
Who can benefit from Nutritional therapy?
People of all ages, from the very young to the elderly, and in many different states of health have found that the whole health approach through nutritional therapy at The Ki Clinic has helped them to more vibrant health.
Good health is a valuable asset, and achieving optimal health usually requires effort. Many people are not functioning optimally, but are not aware of how to move forward. You may find the vast amount of information about nutrition and health to be confusing - what is right for you? A Nutritional Therapy programme at The Ki Clinic provides you with a personal roadmap to better health.
General Nutritional assessments and Health Analysis from £95.
For any sporting individual aspiring to be a better athlete and compete at their best a good diet cannot be ignored. A poor diet can lead to injury, fatigue, stress, lack of wellness and delayed recovery.
Nutrition plays an important role in improving performance and recovery. Competition nutrition strategies can also be pivotal in sports performance at various stages of a season. When injured, nutrient manipulation is critical to the healing process & inflammatory responses can be curtailed through appropriate dietary advice. Indeed the combination of physiotherapy and selective nutrition can optimise rehabilitation from all injuries. We can offer this complimentary approach to recovery and help athletes resume training quickly and correctly.
Living a healthy lifestyle today is not always easy. A hectic schedule and lack of finances can often leave our eating patterns open to abuse or neglect. Mark, our Performance Nutritionist will be able to identify specific dietary requirements, food intolerances or allergies and nutrient deficiencies. In other instances, some individuals may need support and guidance for disordered eating or food phobias.
Whatever the problem and whatever the individual's needs, the first step is to undertake an appropriate nutritional assessment in order to establish dietary requirements. Consultations will encompass a nutritional assessment and the development of personalised eating programmes that are practical and feasible within the context of your lifestyle whilst addressing your nutritional requirements. Claire will create a way of eating that works for you, is nutritionally optimal and is long term. There are no quick fixes to good health. Positive steps are an investment in a healthier future and appropriate eating practices need to be well established in order to work.
In order to undergo a nutritional assessment and establish a personal training diet or competition nutrition strategy or for nutritional support during your injury and rehabilitation, contact The Ki Clinic and make an appointment with our Performance Nutritionist and Registered Metabolic Typing Advisor Mark Costar.
