All-round health from your expert team: What does it mean, to feel well; eat well; move well and look well ?
Motivation; Wellbeing; being Pain-Free, Mobile and Confident… What is important to you? Here at Bedford Consulting Rooms, we look at health from every angle.
With over 70 professional practitioners from a large number of treatment modalities, we have an eye on every aspect of health. We know that being well isn’t just about your body being free of disease, it is also about feeling well in yourself, and being able to take pleasure in the daily activities of your life.
Your first port of call for health concerns should always be your GP, and alongside this we can support aspects of your health and wellbeing.
You may be looking to make moving and getting around, functioning physically on any level better. If you have physical discomfort, limitation or pain, or fatigue and are not feeling physically well in yourself, we have a range of therapies that could address this type of issue.
We have physical therapies to help you move well and function physically: acupuncture, physiotherapy, sports medicine, audiology, speech and language therapy, yoga, Pilates, remedial exercise, continence and pelvic floor physiotherapy, health screening and thermal imaging, with more practitioners joining all the time.
Accumulating evidence shows that the foods and vitamins, minerals and supplements we ingest all have profound effects on every aspect of our health, simple foods can cause or help to overcome disease states (Martínez-González et al. 2015; Pearson-Stuttard et al. 2018).
To help you find you way to eat well, we have practitioners of dietetics and nutritional therapy who can help you to balance and address how to intake what your body needs for health and develop good habits. Our psychologists, counsellors, hypnotherapists and coaches can also help with eating issues.
