Osteopathy & Acupuncture
There is a misconception that we mainly treat back pain but at our clinics in Ashford, Chatham and Dover, our Touch2Heal practitioners come across a wide range of adult complaints.
We apply osteopathy or acupuncture (sometimes both) to treat joint pain, head and neck complaints, knee complaints, hip complaints, foot and ankle complaints, spinal problems, shoulder complaints, mobility problems, stiffness and tension, trapped nerves and the like.
Beyond the purely physical complaints we also treat for digestive problems, headaches, asthma, allergies, menstrual problems and so forth.
Causes of Pain may Not be Obvious
As people become adults they become more susceptible to physical trauma injuries brought on by awkward movements such as twisting suddenly or bending over. Chronic pain frequently derives from our working environment, sitting in one position for long periods can do it such as at a desk or whilst driving. These become posture problems and we seem to treat more and more of these.
Quite often pain derives from earlier injuries or operations even though they are not obviously related. Because of the way we are connected inside a problem occurring in the foot could easily manifest itself as back pain. Sciatica is a classic case whereby the severe leg pain is actually caused by a trapped nerve in the spine.
The Stresses of Modern Life
Modern life can be quite stressful. Tension in the shoulders and neck as well as severe headaches are a familiar knock on from this. The good thing is that all the conditions described on this page respond well to osteopathy or acupuncture.

My knees had become a real problem for me these past few years so I started seeing Sharron in Ashford. Since she started treating me the improvement I feel is wonderful. She showed me some exercises as well to strengthen my leg muscles and I walk everyday. It’s the best I’ve felt in years.
I confess I’m not the bravest when it comes to needles however it was nothing to worry about. My golfer’s elbow is cured and I’m back to playing off my handicap of 16. Thanks Cecile.
I was sent for scans and blood tests but my GP was unable to treat the severe stomach cramps I was getting. Cecile was recommended to me so I thought I would give her a try. She explored my daily routine and thought that the stress of getting the children to school before setting off to work might be a contributory factor. Through a combination of a revised routine (to give myself more time), some diet changes, osteopathy and acupuncture, the stomach cramps reduced considerable and now 8 months later I haven’t had a recurrence.
I suffered a small head on collision in the snow last winter. I felt okay after the accident but the following morning my neck was really sore. My wife suggested seeing Cecile at Touch2Heal. She fitted me in the next day (Friday) and I had a second session the following Tuesday. The first treatment helped me no end and two days after the follow up session the pain disappeared completely.
