Cedar Hall Clinic, based in Stanford le Hope for the last ten years has moved to a larger premises, just 9 minutes by car up the road to the bustling hub of Corringham Town Centre.
The new practice at 14 Grover Walk, Corringham, Essex SS17 7LY, has three treatment rooms which will allow patients more treatment time options. The directors of the clinic Sara Lovett & Jacki Milne are looking to employ another Osteopath and one or two Sports Massage therapists to complete a very busy treatment team.
We look forward to welcoming both our regular and new patients to the new clinic. Our phone number remains unchanged at 01375 678877
We are pleased to announce that Cedar Hall Clinics will be reopening on Monday 1st June for ALL patients.
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.
Protective screens have been placed on Reception desk and we ask you where possible to use contactless card payment. For your convenience the limit has been increased to £45
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.
Please arrive for your appointment at the time due and not early so as to avoid crowding in Reception. Also unless you are under 16, a vulnerable adult or have mobility restrictions, please do not bring other people to your appointment.
We appreciate that some of these procedures mean we can’t as yet return to our usual relaxed and informal atmosphere but it is in all our interest to adhere to these guidelines for the time being. In the meantime you can still be assured of a warm & friendly welcome and the best of treatments.
We are all looking forward to getting back to doing what we love best – helping YOU back to health & fitness. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Following the guidelines of Public Health England and the NHS websites we want to reassure all our patients that your safety and that of your family are our top priority and as such we have introduced some even more stringent hygiene arrangements than usual. We know that all our patients will be happy to comply – please see below:
Clinics will continue as normal for the time being although there may be a few slight changes to times. If we all adhere to government guidelines and restrictions we will get through this together.
Keep safe. Keep washing those hands. Keep healthy
🌶️Did you know that Chillies are good for you? 🌶️
1. Chilli Peppers help Your Immune System
Due to their high content of vitamins, specifically Vitamins A and C, Chilli peppers have long been valued as a powerful immunity booster.
2. Chilli Peppers help to ramp up your metabolism. Capsaicin is the compound that is the source of a Chilli pepper’s spiciness. It is an alkaloid compound found primarily within the seeds and veins of a pepper, and it seems to be a veritable fount of good health. It is thought that the heat you experience as you eat the Chilli can also increase your body temperature. Known in the scientific community as thermogenesis, this production of heat requires increased work from your metabolism.
3. Chilli Peppers could be enhancing your Heart Health. The benefits of capsaicin don’t end with metabolic support. This amazing compound has been shown to help in the reduction of cholesterol and triglyceride levels while reducing the risk of blood clot formation. Reducing these risk factors in your cardiovascular system translates into lowered risks of suffering a heart attack, stroke or deadly blood clot.
4. Chilli Peppers could be reducing body wide inflammation. Capsaicin seems to be a sort of Jack-of-all-trades in relation to the health of human body, supporting and maintaining the health of nearly all of our major systems. It has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, actually inhibiting the action of certain peptides in the body that cause irritation and swelling. Pain, such as arthritis, headaches, sinus pressure and muscle and joint aches, are usually caused by inflammatory responses that your body produces in an attempt to eradicate an irritant.
5. Chilli Peppers – helping to fight against Diabetes.
Research has shown that eating meals containing Chilli peppers can be highly beneficial for those suffering from diabetes. It seems that Chillies reduce the amount of insulin needed to digest food, translating into a lowered overall level of blood sugar. This reduction in insulin production also helps to reduce the strain on the liver, leading to a more fully functional enzyme cascade within the digestive system.
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.
