EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT.
AND EVERY BODY IS DIFFERENT.
THERE’S ALWAYS ANOTHER WAY TO ADDRESS PAIN SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO LIVING YOUR LIFE. I HELP YOU MANAGE YOUR PAIN BEFORE IT MANAGES YOU.
So whether you’re suffering with a chronic, long term condition like arthritis, or need fast relief from headaches or hot flushes, you can always find some relief with a way to take control of your pain.
That’s why there’s no one-size fits all solution. And it’s why at The Pain Clinic we always start with an initial consultation, then build your tailored treatment plan from there.
YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH THE PROCESS UNDERSTANDING YOUR PAIN
We’ll chat through what you’re feeling and the impact it’s been having on your life to create your pain recovery or management plan. We’ll do this either in person at my North Wales Clinic, or online.
I’ll also provide an initial treatment to start your pain support process.
I integrate the best of Eastern medicine with Western approaches to health and wellbeing creating a treatment plan which is based around your needs and goals, at a pace that suits you and your body. I’ll also create an initial report to outline your approach and enable us to track your progress as we work together.
This is completely bespoke to you, your diagnosis and your budget, ranging from 1 off target treatments to treatment per week or 1 treatment per month. At the start of each session, or between them, depending on how we work together we’ll discuss mini progress reviews to ensure we are flexing and adapting the treatment to suit your needs.
Depending on the type of pain you’re experiencing, or the goals you want to achieve I offer a range of treatment options.
These sessions are one-off, 75 minute treatments and are great if you have specific goals like labour induction or weight loss, managing hot flushes, headaches or stress and anxiety. You can book as many, or as few as you like based on our consultation.

There is no such thing as a miracle recovery for the majority of pain conditions. I wish there was, but I’m sorry, it’s just a fact. However, they can be managed, and that’s why, along with your final treatment, we’ll discuss your final report to understand your results, and what steps to take moving forwards.
I’ll level with you, sometimes you might feel a little worse after the first few treatments. This is perfectly normal and usually part of the healing process. Sometimes you might have a response you weren’t expecting, an emotional release, or feelings of nausea for example. That’s all totally normal and part of the process of recovery. I will monitor you every step of the way; flexing and adjusting your treatment according to your responses.
I use my expertise across a variety of conventional and non-traditional therapy to unlock the most effective results for you.
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Methods used to diagnose a person’s “condition” in Traditional Chinese Medicine is completely different to those used in Western medicine. An expert TCM practitioner will always seek to look at a patient’s constitutional and emotional make-up.
At the initial consultation a patient will be asked about their main complaint and to give a full medical history. Some of the questions may seem “strange”, unconventional or irrelevant but please be assured every question I ask helps me build a picture of your “pattern” and ultimate diagnosis.
ACUPUNCTURE & BODYWORK THERAPY
This famous alternative system of medicine has been used for thousands of years in Eastern societies to promote and maintain good health. In modern times, it is still practiced alongside “conventional” medicine in many Oriental hospitals and medical students often learn the two together. So it is totally normal for a Chinese person to visit an Acupuncturist/Body Therapist rather than a GP!
It is now the most commonly used form of complementary medicine. For this reason, Western society increasingly recognises acupuncture as an effective treatment for many conditions. Pain management, fertility, stress, headaches to name a few.
Consequently, the evidence case for acupuncture is building. Indeed, the government medical organisation, NICE, recommends acupuncture for a number of health-related issues.
SOFT TISSUE MANIPULATION
Injury, chronic pain, tension or issues with range of motion can be supported through this deeper form of massage. Relieves troublesome aches and pains and helps with the general relief of stress and tension and for physical/muscular fatigue.
I am a health and life coach as well as a specialist Therapist because honestly, everything in your life ends up effecting your health.
I love teaching my patients about their condition and living with it or managing it in a way that’s practical. I also am passionate about helping my clients step into their next level of physical capability, whether that’s running a marathon or going for a gentle stroll in nature.

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PLAN IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Whichever plan you choose, the treatment principles are the same. That means I will always treat you based on our initial consultation.
But not just that, care for you is at the heart of everything I do, and your treatment will be completely bespoke to how you feel on the day of the treatment. What I call your ‘presenting condition’ so we ensure it’s all absolutely specific to that moment in time, meaning you get the best results possible.
And as we’re working out the plan we’ll take a number of things into consideration:
THE TYPE OF PAIN YOU’RE EXPERIENCING
Injury: Musculoskeletal | Soft Tissue | Myofascial | Scars | Burns
Persistent Pain: Joints | Muscles | Tendons | Fibromyalgia | Scleroderma
Headstuff: Headaches | Migraines | Dizziness | Brainfog | TMJ | Earache | Substance Misuse
Respiratory Conditions: Coughs & Colds | Seasonal Allergies | Asthma
Women's Health: Fertility | Endometriosis | Periods | Menopause | Pregnancy
Digestive Health: Nausea & Vomiting | IBS | Bloating | Cramps
THE NATURE OF
For example, if you suffer from a chronic pain condition, and you’ve had it for years, you’ll probably need more treatments per month. This is especially the case in the early months. As time goes on we would expect this to reduce in frequency but most long term conditions need to be treated on a regular basis.
For something more acute, like a torn ligament, my approach would be to help you move from Tier One to Tier Three over a period of 3 months as the ligament heals and the scar tissue is worked.
THE FREQUENCY OF YOUR PAIN
If you suffer from Fibromyalgia for example, and you’re prone to frequent pain flare ups then I would recommend increasing the frequency of treatments per month.
YOUR LIFE PLANS
Often, we can suffer pain at the most inconvenient moments. So if you need to make a speedy recovery or are looking for intensive treatment, we can plan for that.
For example, if you were about to go on a dream holiday to Australia and you had knee pain – I would suggest intensive treatment to resolve the pain in time. Or if you were a fertility patient starting IVF we would also look at a more intensive treatment plan.
Silence can be another word for pain, but I want to help you manage that pain before it manages you. And I’ll always aim to reduce the frequency of our treatments over time. But it’s like anything. Once you stop you can’t expect the benefits and the ability to control your pain to carry on forever.
I am able to travel to meet clients at other locations outside of Flintshire and Chester so if you want to take control of your pain and discover lasting relief. I would love to help you do just that.
