Cold laser facials in London…

Several savvy women from Toronto have found Laser Medicine in London for their Cold Laser Facials, which, they tell me, are similar to the Cold Laser Facials at W SkinCare, Canada. W SkinCare Toronto, incidentally, was reportedly frequented by Meghan Markle during the production of 'Suits', and many other A listers are reported to have this facial on their must-go beauty regime. So. [...]

Pain-free low level laser treatment for warts and verruca

Using low level laser to treat warts and verruca is non-invasive, pain-free and remarkably effective, as reported in a number of clinical trials across the UK (see British Medical Journal and Turner). Unlike alternatives methods for wart/verruca removal which 'burn' or cut the wart or verruca (often resulting in their return), low level laser does not create [...]

Low level laser therapy for scar tissue

When any soft tissue is damaged the body produces scar tissue. We normally associate scar tissue with cuts and incisions at the skin's surface. However, scar tissue is also produced beneath the skin, around damaged muscles, nerves and joints.

Stretch your mind…

A few years ago, travelling though Mexico, I met an extraordinary woman. Over a breakfast conversation in our beach restaurant on the Yukatan Peninsular, she told me about a motorbike accident she’d been involved in a few years earlier. She had been riding pillion with her boyfriend along Route 101 – that stunning stretch of [...]

The Five Elements and Health

Having worked with the five elements, or the Five Transformations, for over 10 years, it never ceases to amaze me just how much wisdom and insight are contained within this simple and logical way of understanding change and transformation.

One of the four basic ideas within Eastern medicine is that each human being is a unified whole of body, mind and spirit.

Pigmentation and acne: Beyond skin deep…

Like all health issues, pigmentation is another manifestation of dead red blood cells not cleared away by the body's lymphatic system. Acne, eczema, and dermatitis are similar in that they all indicate a deeper blockage in the body's natural system. What appears at the skin's surface is always an indication of something working less efficiently [...]
