As always our top priority continues to be patient and staff safety therefore you will notice some new and updated procedures in place when you arrive for treatment.
All staff will be wearing disposable PPE including gloves, masks, aprons & visors (if required). There will be an appropriate gap after each patient to allow for PPE changes and disposal, the disinfectant of treatment rooms and all contact points in the clinic. This gap will also ensure there is a limited number of people in the clinic so social distancing can be maintained.

We will also be asking you to wear masks, so please feel free to bring your own if you prefer and sanitise your hands on arrival. If necessary non contact temperature checks will be done on arrival and any patients presenting with symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

With people embracing new diets for the new year, we thought it was important to explain the health benefits of some foods that can be easily added into your cooking, so here is the first in our mini series created by our osteopath James.
1. Help fight colds and sickness. A 12-week study found that a daily garlic supplement reduced the number of colds by 63% compared to a placebo.
2. Could be beneficial in reducing blood pressure. Some studies have found garlic supplements to have a significant impact on reducing blood pressure in people with high blood pressure.
3. It may help lower cholesterol. Studies have demonstrated a reduction in total and/or LDL cholesterol by about 10–15%.
4. Garlic contains antioxidants that support the body’s protective mechanisms against oxidative damage. These antioxidants may reduce the risk of common brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
5. Could help maintain health bones. rodent studies have shown that it can minimise bone loss by increasing oestrogen in females.

Although osteopaths are renowned for the treatment of bad backs it is a common misconception that this is the only medical problem they treat. Indeed osteopathy successfully treats a variety of painful conditions – here’s a more comprehensive, but not definitive list.
If you’re suffering with an ache, pain or injury and fed up popping pain killers why not come to one of our clinics in Thurrock or Benfleet for a Diagnostic Assessment to find out what’s going on? We work in conjunction with a skilled team of practitioners including a Physiotherapist, Acupuncturist & Sports Massage specialist.
Diagnostic Assessment £20

Acupuncture really is for everyone!
My youngest patient was 7 and my oldest is 86!
Its amazing what acupuncture is capabale of treating safely and effectively. It’s not scary or painful, many patients report an increased sense of wellbeing, a better night’s sleep and a boost of energy alongside the reduction and resolution of the symptoms they came in hoping to get rid of!
It’s rarely just about some little pins, a combination of Tui Na massage and cupping is often involved or can be used solely if preferred…. It’s easy to find out if you’re suitable for Acupuncture by making a diagnostic assessment appointment through our website for just £20 or call the clinic directly.
I have a few spaces for new patients currently which aren’t always easy to come by so don’t hesitate! And if you’re not suitable, referrals to one of my colleagues, back to the NHS/GP or for an MRI can be done if necessary!

What on earth are you all doing to your shoulders this time of year?!
Cracking on with sorting the garden, hoisting beach bags and holiday luggage about or maybe even having some awkwardly positioned sunbathing naps??? …
Whatever you’re upto I’ve had a massive increase in patients presenting with shoulder pains and mobility issues!! Luckily acupuncture is proving very helpful in regaining normality and controlling the pain!
If you’re struggling and need help you can book a Diagnostic Consultation or get straight in for treatment at Cedar Hall Clinics in Thurrock or Benfleet, Essex with me or any of the amazing Osteopaths.
By Laura Jones Acupuncturist
Following on from the previous post by Acupuncturist Laura Jones about the menstrual cycle she now talks about conceiving naturally.
“I think nowadays many of us believe falling pregnant is going to be easy… But unfortunately 1 in 7 couples are said to be struggling to conceive here in the UK (2013 NHS stats) that’s approximately 3.5 million people! Almost 30% of these cases are unexplained. For those going through that turbulent time of trying to conceive without success, the idea of there being “a problem” can be all consuming and scary. Often leaving either or both partners feeling guilty and helpless… Many emotions fluctuate and can cause anxiety, stress, depression… It’s unique to each person and that in turn can disrupt your insides!
There’s a very delicate balance of hormones required of both parties in order to fall pregnant let alone making sure you’re utlitisng the optimum time in the woman’s cycle! It’s amazing we conceive at all!
Acupuncture can really help get things moving with natural Fertility, I’m very happy to say I’ve helped women fall pregnant without any of the synthetic drugs or invasive procedures many women immediately opt for. At the end of my series of posts surrounding this subject I will write an FAQ all about Acupuncture and Fertility. But if you want to find out more or get the ball rolling please call me to book a free consultation to meet me at either Cedar Hall Clinic in Stanford le Hope or Thundersley, Benfleet. You’re not alone”
