Welcome to The Stonehouse Holistic Centre & Medical Clinic
The centre was created to provide access to a range of Complimentary Medical Treatments that are holistic in every sense.
All therapies are grounded in Traditional Chinese Medicine which applies treatment from an energetic approach rather than a mechanical or chemical approach like that of western medicine.
This Holistic application dates back over 3000 years and could be considered as the most tried and tested forms of medical treatments to date.
Acupuncture and Tui Na Medical Massage are found in hospitals and clinics throughout China to treat complaints that would require Chiropractic, Osteopathic or Physiotherapy treatment here in the UK. These two therapies alone are often offered prior to surgical operation.
Traditional Chinese Medicine also integrates the emotional well-being of a patient when diagnosing, as the mental health of a patient cannot be seperated from the physical. This is what makes holistic therapy a very powerful tool when treating chronic conditions.
