My aim is to use osteopathy to improve your muscular aches and strains, while also ensuring that your overall health improves.
I have particular interest and passion in treating babies and children. I believe that if we can get a baby and child to reach their own physical health, this will help in all areas of their lives.
We work on babies and children of all ages. Parents seek help and advice on colic, restless babies, brain damage, glue ear, dyspraxia, Downs syndrome and malocclusion. We liaise closely with midwives, health visitors and G.P.’s.
If you are unsure whether osteopathy can help you and your family, please ring or e-mail me.
I also offer free baby checks (not currently available during Covid) for up to six months after your child has been born. This service is to find out if there is anything that osteopathy can assist you with. It doesn’t include any treatment but is there so you can find out about us and we can give you advice if necessary. We continue on to treat about 30% of babies first seen at a baby check, but see this as a vitally important service.

Tracey Hugill is a qualified and Registered Dietitian. She has worked in the NHS for over 20 years. Alongside her NHS career, Tracey trained with the London College of Clinical Hypnotherapy International and gained a Diploma in clinical hypnotherapy, she is registered with the Health Care Professions Council and the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Tracey offers holistic support for clients in emerging treatments such as gut directed hypnotherapy.
Tracey’s interest in hypnotherapy came from personal experience using hypno-birthing techniques, the more she explored hypnotherapy the more stories she heard from people for whom hypnotherapy had made a real and lasting difference in their lives. The face of traditional medicine is changing with a greater understanding and appreciation of the powerful role the mind has on the function of the body. Stress, anxiety, worry and fear creating dis-ease that can present itself in a myriad of symptoms and is likely one of the biggest health issues we face today.
The relaxed and enjoyable state of hypnosis can allow the client to go below the critical and analytical part of the mind to access deep rooted attitudes and beliefs that may no longer be serving them. Hypnotherapy guides the client through beneficial changes within the subconscious to bring about positive change in a wide range of areas such as lifestyle changes, phobias, insomnia and stress related conditions.
If you have never experienced hypnotherapy before and would like to know more about it and how it can help you, Tracey offers an initial telephone consultation free of charge to help you decide if this is the right treatment for you.
