  Patrick Thomas – Doctor of Chiropractic MChiro MRCC 
Patrick has been looking after patients since 2011 and says ‘I’m determined to help people get out of pain and back to full health as quickly as possible. I specialise in identifying faulty muscular control and determining the best way of getting back to normal. When muscles work normally, joints also work normally.
Living with my wife and two young daughters, I shifted my focus to pregnancy and paediatrics when the kids arrived.  I have undertaken extensive extra training in the care of children and mums-to-be and thoroughly enjoy working with these groups.’
Patrick is a member of the Association of Afferent Input Practitioners and of the United Chiropractic Association He is also fully registered with the General Chiropractic Council.

comingsoon Rhys Williams – FdSc MBSHAA – Hearing Aid Audiologist and Ear Wax Removal Practitioner
Whilst the body produces ear wax naturally to help protect your ears, it can produce too much which can cause discomfort and sometimes pain.
Rhys carries out Aural Microsuction, which is the preferred and most common method of treatment for ear wax removal. The suction tool works like a vacuum cleaner and removes any ear wax and skin debris which is blocking the ear, without using any water, leaving the ear dry, which is the healthiest option.
Hearing tests can also be carried out here in Petworth.
comingsoon Hollie Monhemius – Reiki Master – wellhousereiki.co.uk
Reiki is an ancient form of energy medicine developed and formalised in early 1920’s Japan. Reiki is also the name given to the subtle, natural healing vibration channeled through a Reiki practitioner to the client during a treatment. This natural healing therapy promotes calm and balance by strengthening your body’s natural healing processes and releasing blockages in your energy system. Energetic blockages are formed and sustained by the barrage of energies we come into daily contact with in our environments.
There are many ailments that in fact begin as subtle energetic imbalances and Reiki aims to resolve these small imbalances before they become bigger problems.
Hollie was first introduced to Reiki 15 years ago and was initially fascinated by the healing aspect of it. As her interest, training and practice has grown she now recognises the spiritual elements of the system and brings this awareness into her treatments.In a treatment, the client remains fully clothed as Hollie places her hands either on or just above the body to channel the Reiki energy. Clients can expect to leave a session feeling relaxed, re-balanced and re-energized.
Hollie is a member of the UK Reiki Federation & is fully insured. Other qualifications include EFT Levels I & II and Guild of Energists Modern Energy Tapping Foundation. Hollie is also a member of the Guild of Energists.
Selena Collins – Acupuncture, Reflexoogy, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D & Glutathione Injections
Acupuncture is often used to treat painful conditions such as migraine, lower back pain and osteoarthritis. It is also used to help people with a range of conditions from anxiety to infertility.
Selena gained her BSc in acupuncture from the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) which is affiliated to the University of Greenwich.
Selena practices Traditional, Five Element and Classical Stems and Branches acupuncture to formulate her treatments according to each patient’s specific, holistic needs.
Using Traditional, 5 Element and Classical Stems and Branches acupuncture as well as moxibustion and cupping techniques, treatments are formulated very precisely for the individual. Acupuncture takes a whole person view to address symptoms and root causes of conditions to support your body to use its own innate healing ability. Some people use it to maintain balance and harmony in good health.
Treatments are designed to improve immediate symptoms but also to benefit the patient on a deeper level from where imbalances may have their root.
The aim of the traditionally trained acupuncturist is to produce relief from symptoms, re-balance the body/mind and to promote a sense of well-being for each patient. You may notice that other symptoms in addition to those you primarily want treated, improve after acupuncture.
Selena says “I’m particularly interested in fertility care, family health and psycho-emotional issues but the thing I love most about acupuncture is the wide range of possibilities it opens up to me as a practitioner and to the people who come to my clinic.  Every day is different and each person I see is unique.Selena offers Vitamin injections. Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Glutathione.
She is also a Reflexology practitioner.
