Whatever your health needs, we can help
Where necessary, therapists can now consult with the other disciplines, to help resolve your problem as quickly as possible. If further investigations, such as an x-ray or blood tests are necessary or you require further medical treatment, we may contact your doctor, with your permission.
Passionate about our patients’ wellbeing, we stock ‘Sissel’ products to aid healthy sitting and quality sleep and Pilates tools to assist your home self-care. Relevant supplements, remedies, creams and hot/cold therapy products are available for purchase. Other specialist items, such as back supports, can usually be supplied within 2-3 days.
Many of our patients find us through kind referral. For those who wish to introduce friends or family to these benefits, we now also offer Gift vouchers.

Elena Panfilova BSc RHom began her interest in holistic medicine after moving to the UK, in 2003, from Russia, where she worked as a medical doctor in a hospital in Saint Petersburg. Elena qualified as a Homeopath from the Middlesex University in London.
Having a great respect for conventional medicine, Elena was drawn to homeopathy because of its approach to disease through understanding the whole person, including their body, mind and emotional state. Elena’s particular interest is in treating women and children – supporting women during periods of hormonal change (puberty, birth and menopause) as well as times of emotional stress, grief or simply not feeling right to children with learning difficulties or behavioural problems.
