“The thinking mind is strong, add creativity and your world becomes empowered.”
In recent years, the case for Integrating Alternative Therapies into mainstream Medicine has gained momentum with supporters like PGPS firmly backing this development. Dr Piper believes that mainstream Medicine can work to advise concerning the strengths and weaknesses of Alternative Therapies in exactly the same way as it does for orthodox Medicine.
Private General Practice Services (PGPS), situated in Stoneygate, is the largest Private GP Practice in Leicestershire. Thanks to its successful application of Integrated Medicine, Combining the Excellence of Traditional Evidence Based Medicine with the Creativity of Alternative Therapy and also occupational medicine, this practice is Leading the Way in Healthcare.
Whilst much is known about the importance of traditional Medicine and the evidence for its continued use, far less is known about Alternative (complimentary) Therapies. 25 years ago, they were considered unorthodox, but Today they are Very Much More Accepted and openly practised. Research shows that 90% of us use them in one form or another, and we know that when correctly and safely administered by open-minded and trained professionals, how Beneficial they can be for Body, Mind and Spirit.
So what are alternative therapies? The “big five” are osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture , homeopathy and herbal medicine. Others including: hypnotherapy, reiki, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), reflexology, aromatherapy and massage also play their part.
