Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Clients and Students

Due to the coronavirus, Body in Balance Clinic and Body in Balance Training are now closed and all appointments and training courses are suspended. I will get in touch with you all as soon as a safe return to normal service is possible.

Meanwhile, I am curating and posting self-help tips on my Facebook page that you might like to explore.

Take good care of yourselves.

April 2016: Scottish Government updates guidance on Complementary and Alternative Medicine

The revised guidance provides information to all NHS Boards, Special Boards and Health and Social Care Partnerships in Scotland about the Professional Standards Authority’s accredited registers programme.

It states: “the Scottish Government recognises that Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAM) may offer some relief to some people living with a wide variety of long term health conditions.

It also makes clear that use of accredited registers such as CNHC’s: “can have a number of benefits for practitioners, patients, contracting organisations and employers; providing reassurance that professionals are subject to a level of appropriate scrutiny.”

The full text of the guidance can be viewed on the Scottish Government’s website. (Pdf download).
