The ‘BE WELL LONDON’ multidisciplinary complementary health clinic opens on 26 November.
At its foundation is the integration of traditional and modern evidence-based complimentary medicine, combining Eastern and Western medical principles.
The clinic is formed and run by alumni and teaching staff of the University of Westminster, a leading University in complementary medicine training and research. It will offer treatment and education to both the public and other health professionals.
Be Well London practitioners have been selected for their academic abilities and therapeutic skills. All are First Aiders, adhere to strict codes of safe practice and are educated to a BSc level which involved three years full time training; up to 500 practical clinic hours; a thorough understanding of the biomedical model, referral decisions, research and communication skills. “We believe that raising standards is essential to ensure optimum outcome for patients. If we can help we will, and if we can’t, we will ensure that we refer on to our extensive network of other healthcare professionals ‘ says clinic manager Susanne Kaiser.
Acupuncturist Thalia Perry explains: “From our clinical experience we know that a multidisciplinary approach is the best way to treat patients. At Be Well London we provide a truly integrated approach to treatment, with practitioners from both Eastern and Western therapies coming together to make their recommendations and help the patient decide which therapy or combination of therapies might work best for them.”
Kate Fismer, one of the clinic’s naturopaths adds: “We believe in working together as a close team and in sharing and collaborating with our collective knowledge. Because we are a cooperative, practitioners benefit equally whether they are treating patients or are involved in the administrative or educational side of the clinic. This eliminates any potential therapy bias.”
Therapists at Be Well London will offer a wide range of complementary therapies, including Western Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Nutritional Therapy, Tui Na and different types of Massage. They will also run specialist clinics including: Eczema, Fertility, Female Wellbeing, Weight loss, Sports & Fitness and Stress.
For patients who are unsure of which therapy would be most suitable, Be Well London offers a free, 15-minute gatekeeper appointment, where the team can advise on possible treatment options.
“We also offer a full ‘Health MOT’ for those who want more of an insight into their health. Our team of experts develop a personalised programme from a multidisciplinary perspective, following extensive assessments and a wide range of tests. These can range from a nutritional status review to postural assessment to blood tests to Chinese pulse and tongue diagnosis,” explains nutritionist Jackie McCusker.
In addition Be Well London will offer educational seminars and practical workshops aimed at self-empowerment. Events range from seasonal tips for flu or allergy prevention, nutrition for health and fitness, mindful eating seminars with chocolate meditation, to hands-on workshops in our dispensary on herbal medicine. “Our aim is to give patients the tools to guide them through the myriad of excessive and contradictory material that is available,” says herbal medicine practitioner Kim Walker.
