About Us


After many happy years serving and working with you, it is with sincere regret that we inform you The Park Clinic will be closing permanently on the 31st of July 2018. The decision was taken to close the Integrative Medicine provision at Middlesex University following various challenges, many of them national, that the subject area has been facing for several years. Although it is sad news, we would like to assure you that there will be no change in our services until we close. If you need further details please do email us.

Treatments


Patient care is our top priority

Traditional Chinese Medicine


Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It uses a holistic approach to diagnose, prevent and manage disease through therapies including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tuina Massage.

The research evidence for Chinese Medicine is building. For example acupuncture is recommended as a cost-effective option for lower back pain and headaches.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or ‘life force’, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced ‘chee’).

Acupuncture is the insertion of needles into the skin and underlying tissues in key ‘points’ for therapeutic or preventative purposes. The stimulation of certain “trigger points” – probably nerve fibres or receptors – with needles, electrical impulses or lasers is thought to induce rhythmic discharges that cause a release of endogenous opioids and oxytocin.
Acupuncture can help with:

  1. Short-term improvement in the symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome (through electro-acupuncture at the SP6 point);
  2. Short-term relief of tension type headaches;
  3. Short-term relief of migraine headache;
  4. Short-term relief of chronic low back pain;
  5. Short-term relief of neck pain or chronic neck pain;
  6. Short-term relief from temporomandibular (TMD/TMJ) pain;
  7. Temporary adjunctive treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain.

Western Herbal Medicine



Western Herbal Medicine has been used for over two thousand years. It incorporates the traditional use of herbs and contemporary pharmacological research and biomedical knowledge. It chiefly uses European herbs, but incorporates useful plants from different parts of the world.

 

Clinical trials are increasingly providing an evidence base for herbal medicine: three herbs that target major health challenges include Echinacea (for colds and immunity); St. John’s Wort (for depression) and Ginkgo (for dementia).

Ayurveda is an holistic health care system that originated in India several thousand years ago.

Treatment can include simple diet and lifestyle advice, food supplements or medicines, massage, psychological and emotional consulting, meditation and yoga.
