Traditional Acupuncture

Traditional Acupuncture at Warley Grange Health is provided by our Acupuncturist Derek Climpson.

Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”). Practitioners who use acupuncture in the traditional way believe that when Qi does not flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.

Traditional Acupuncture’s approach is holistic: It views our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health as interdependent.

Alexander Technique

The Alexander technique teaches improved posture and movement, which is believed to help reduce and prevent problems caused by unhelpful habits. During a number of lessons you’re taught to be more aware of your body, how to improve poor posture and move more efficiently. Teachers of the Alexander technique believe it helps get rid of tension in your body and relieves problems such as back pain, neck ache, sore shoulders and other musculoskeletal problems. Evidence suggests the technique has the potential to improve certain health conditions, but there are some claims made about the technique that haven’t been scientifically tested.

Derek undertook a 3 year full time training in London and has more than 30 years experience as a practitioner of the Alexander Technique. He is a practising member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT). Members of STAT are required to adhere to a code of professional conduct, hold professional indemnity insurance and to undergo annual DBS/ CRB checks. Derek is also a registered practitioner with the British Association of Performing Arts( BAPAM) and Backcare / National Back Pain Association. He has given talks and workshops throughout Essex including to the Society of Chartered Physiotherapists at Southend University Hospital, Southend on Sea and to staff at Runwell Hospital, Wickford.
