With the exception of one week when we closed as a precaution Andrew has continued to work throughout the crisis for those in need. Sometimes just attending for one or 2 patients, we had the appropriate PPE & hygiene measures in place from the outset. As recognised primary healthcare practitioners, osteopaths were given exemption to work throughout 'lock down'. So yes you can consult and be treated (if appropriate) by an osteopath, even when you may not be able to get to see your GP. If it is considered that your problem does require further attention from elsewhere, then we can advise as such and write an appropriate referral letter if needed.

Aside from one week when we closed as a precaution I have continued to work since the initial lockdown in March, sometimes coming in for only one or 2 patients. After 6 months, with extended appointment slots, the additional work involved and limited number of people I can practically see in a day I feel that I need to increase the fees to have any chance of sustainability.
At the front of our centre we have a health food shop where we stock a range of top quality nutritional and herbal supplements (typically not those that you would find in a supermarket), eco friendly toiletries, etc.

Welcome back Gill and Homeopathy!
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine that is safe for all ages. Gentle yet powerful it uses diluted, potentised remedies that are made from natural substances such as plants and minerals. These remedies are safe to take and side-effects are rare.
Homeopathy has been developed over two hundred years into a modern system of medicine that treats you holistically as an individual. It's aim is to stimulate the body"s own healing response and which may quickly improve energy and well-being.
Homeopathy is suitable for adults, the elderly, babies and children as well as during pregnancy.
Tui Na & Fire Cupping
Tui Na Tui Na (Twee Nah) is - Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) Massage, which looks at both the physical problem; such as muscular & skeletal issues and other factors that may contribute, such as stress, anxiety, grief, etc.
Using a variety of soft tissue techniques (i.e. rolling, grasping, stretching & pressure points), and joint mobilisation, Tui Na works on the physical, emotional and energetic levels. This is done by working to;
Release acute or chronically tight muscles,
Mobilise stiff joints,
Stimulate the circulation to; A) Clear away the pain causing inflammation and B) Encourage fresh blood where needed to assist tissue healing & repair,
Invigorate the flow of Qi (vital energy) by working along the energy channels
Tui Na can be done through clothing, traditionally done through a cotton sheet or directly on the skin. Sometimes Moxa (a TCM herb) is burnt to warm certain areas, i.e. acupuncture points or channels and fire cupping can be used to disperse congested blood, lymph and Qi circulation.
Tui Na is used in hospitals in China and is actually more popular than acupuncture.

Who Are We?
The Holistic Centre offers a wide range of complementary therapies and treatments that are performed by skilled, fully qualified and insured therapists, in a professional, and relaxing environment. We are Wirral's premier holistic health centre and offer the widest range of complementary medicine and holistic therapies in the North West.
Our Mission is to raise both local and global awareness of holistic and complementary therapies and medicine.
We constantly maintain high standards of hygiene and customer service, while maintaining a calming and tranquil atmosphere, to ensure the highest quality of treatment
Quite simply to present a different way of looking at health, a holistic view using a common sense approach of treating the person, rather than a symptom, syndrome or condition.
Been told to live with it?
Often we see clients that say they've been told to "live with it", but with the right treatment and advice many people can improve significantly or fully recover.
If you have a problem and the conventional medical approach has done little to help or guide you, then maybe it's time to look at it a different way and give us a call.
It may be time to try something different!
Browse our pages and see if there is a therapy or treatment to suit you.

Introducing the New Asyra PRO©
Bio-Energetic Health Screening
Commonly referred to as 'allergy testing', EAV (Electro Acupuncture According to Voll) or Bio-Resonance - the Asyra PRO does much more. Options include food / environmental sensitivities & whole body systems scan. Also, compatibility screening for vitamins, minerals & other nutritional supplements, herbal remedies & able to produce electro-homeopathic remedies.
For those that have ever had a 'sensitivity'/ allergy test with an EDS (Electro Dermal Screening) system (i.e. VEGA test, MORA, BEST, etc), then you'll have an idea of what this is about. This sort of approach is also known as Bioresonance therapy and is based on the long established EAV (Electro Acupuncture according to doctor Voll) system of diagnosis. We have just purchased the very latest EDS system called the Asyra PRO, which incorporates automated screening facilities for issues with;
Vitamin and minerals
Food allergy, sensitivity / intolerances
Dental work & dental materials (i.e. amalgam filings, root canal work, anaesthetics, antibiotics, etc.)
Environmental sensitivities (electromagnetic radiation, mobile phones, office environment, etc.).
Toxin tracing - suggested source of toxic influences i.e. water supply, processed foods.
Internal organ and body tissue health
The results of the screening does not necessarily mean a life time of avoidance.
