Complementary Therapies at our North London Clinic


Acupuncture is a form of treatment that dates back two thousand years and is recognised as being of benefit for many common problems such as arthritis, rheumatism and other joint pains, headaches and migraines.

Very fine needles, which are not painful when placed in the skin, are used to stimulate the body, encourage healing and soothe pain.

At the Oakwood Physiotherapy Clinic we only use new, pre-sterilised, disposable needles to avoid any risk of cross-infection.

Research shows that around 70% of people gain noticeable benefit when treated with acupuncture for painful conditions.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture

Most people value their youthful appearance and wish to stay as young looking as they can for as long as possible. Surgery is not the route that most people wish to take; the risks of surgery, including the recovery time and the cost, tend to be off-putting.

With acupuncture people can still obtain good results, though not as dramatic as surgical facelifts, knowing that they have used natural, health enhancing, traditional medicine which stimulates the body to promote its own improvements.

Face lifting acupuncture stimulates a tightening of the natural collagen fibres which holds skin tightly together reducing sagging and giving a more energised, brighter look to the face.


Foot reflex therapy, or reflexology, is an age-old remedy for all sorts of ailments. Usually the feet are the main site for treatment using a very specialised form of massage.

The therapist often identifies tender areas of the foot, as these are believed to be related to specific areas of the body.

By gently massaging the feet, reflexologists believe it may be possible to enhance the body's functioning and sometimes even soothe pain.

Reflexology can also be good as a "de-stressing" treatment that may help relaxation and sleep.


Homoeopathy is a gentle and safe therapy when practised by a qualified professional. More and more people are using homoeopathy in conjunction with conventional treatments to help treat various illnesses such as irritable bowel problems, eczema and hormonal problems.

Homoeopathy is thought to stimulate the body's system and assist the body's own healing potential. The medicines used are called remedies and they are prepared from plant and mineral substances. The remedies are diluted many times before being taken by a patient.

Initial consultations with our homoeopath last at least one hour as the homoeopath takes an in-depth approach to each individual. This is important for the right remedy to be selected.
