"I highly recommend the†Aston Clinic†to Local Mums.†As a family, we have benefited from their expertise for very many years. †The clinic is always our first port of call and the therapists unerringly diagnoses and corrects any problems, be it skeletal, muscular, postural, digestive etc. They have a wide knowledge and understanding of remedies they can draw on as well as massage and osteopathy. I would highly recommend anyone to make an appointment and consult the Aston Clinc."
Pauline Shepheard, Local Mum

"I highly recommend the†Aston Clinic†to Local Mums.†I was 34 weeks pregnant and at my last scan my baby was found to be in a breech position. I had heard about Acupuncture so I thought I would try the Aston Clinic as its local to me and I really wanted to have a natural birth and not go down the C-section route.†Liz the acupuncturist used moxibustion and the needles were placed in various actu-points on my body. Liz taught me how to use moxa and said to use it for 10 days and following this on my next scan the baby had turned. I was so happy as I am the youngest of three sisters who all had late deliveries and had intervention and C-sections (including my mum).†I ended up going into labour naturally at 39 weeks and I now have a fit and healthy six month old!"
Leah, Local Mum

"I recommend the†Aston Clinic†to Local Mums.†David Melrose has treated most of my family (babies to grannies) with great success. Problems dealt with include back problems - trapped nerves - injuries - allergies and stomach problems. Recently he has helped alleviate the pain of post herpatic neuralgia - when others had given up.”
Lisane Radice, Local Mum

"I recommend the†Aston Clinic†to Local Mums.†The first time I visited Seren was nearly two years ago. I had a two year-old-girl whose immune system was quite weak after several cycles of antibiotics.†Seren understood the issue and gave us the correct treatment to burst the immune system of the little one. Since then my daughter’s health has improved enormously. She became much stronger and resistant and the symptoms of any illness became weaker.†Seren is a very professional and knowledgeable homoeopath; I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone."

Pregnancy back and hip pain?

Osteopathy treatment
Lower back pain and pelvic pain is very common in pregnancy. Osteopathy can relieve back and neck pain and also help ease SPD symptoms. This is very common when the relaxin hormone starts to increase later in pregnancy. Osteopathy can also help after pregnancy in re-aligning your hips and help with the strain of carrying your child and also support a weak pelvic floor causing incontinence.

Unsettled baby?

Cranial osteopathy
This initial adjustment involves many bodily systems such as breathing and digestion. Stresses and strains from the labour or pregnancy can lead to unsettled behaviour with new born babies and difficulties with feeding, winding, colic, bowel movements and sleeping. Relieving any physical strains with gentle osteopathic treatment can be very helpful and relaxing for the baby.

Preparing for labour?

Acupuncture treatment
We can offer four consecutive Acupuncture Treatments starting from 36 weeks pregnant onwards and it is aimed at:

∑ † † † † Supporting the baby to find the best position in the womb in late pregnancy.

∑ † † † † Helping the baby engage and move through the pelvis in the most optimal way if the baby
† † † † † is in a breech position.

∑ † † † † Balancing the expectant mums hormones, promoting relaxation, allowing Oxytocin to
† † † † † build.

∑ † † † † Assisting the cervix to physically prepare for labour.

Do you know what you can and cannot eat before and after pregnancy?

Nutritional treatment
A healthy diet during pregnancy is very important and often overlooked, this will help your baby to develop and grow well but it is also important for you to avoid gaining excessive weight and to avoid developing diseases such as gestational diabetes. †At the clinic we can tailor make a nutritional plan to help you during pregnancy but also support you after pregnancy to relieve symptoms of tiredness and fatigue and help with breastfeeding.

Massage to relax?

Massage and Indian head massage

After 12 weeks it’s safe to have a pregnancy massage, and it is a perfect way to relax and unwind and sooth any muscle aches as well as help you sleep.
