1. Naturopathic Consultations
At Achieving Health we have a strong focus on the prevention of health problems and the early detection of a person's likelihood of developing a health disorder (predisposition). Our programs are very effective at treating acute and chronic health issues.
Our practitioner will aim to;
- Minimise acute symptoms
- Support the body's vital force (capacity to self-heal)
- Re-balance the system so that illness is less likely to occur in the future
- Educate the patient to look after their own health and the health of their family.
In order to carry this out effectively you will be asked about your diet, lifestyle, family background and environment, as well as the history of your illness or complaint. This range of information is important as we will seek to discover the cause of the illness and treat you as a whole person, rather than target the symptoms alone.
As well as taking a comprehensive health history, the naturopath might employ other assessment techniques, such as:
Based on the outcome of these tests our practitioner will employ a suitable non-evasive treatment which could include the following;
- Iris analysis
- Live Blood analysis
- Cellular Health analysis
- Stool and urine analysis
- Hair analysis.
Commonly treated disorders
- Nutrition and dietary advice – this is one of naturopathy's foundations. A poor diet stops the body from functioning well and a build-up of toxins can contribute to a range of illnesses. Whole, fresh and unprocessed foods are recommended.
- Herbal medicine – herbs are as potent as pharmaceutical drugs and can be used to great effect.
- Homeopathy – homeopathic treatments are used to stimulate the immune system.
- Physical therapies – such as massage or frequency specific microcurrent therapy
The range of disorders commonly treated by naturopaths includes:
- Digestive complaints
- Mood disorders and depression

- Behavioural problems
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Degenerative illnesses, such as arthritis
- Cardiovascular problems
- High blood pressure
- Fertility problems
- Endocrine disturbance
- Hormonal imbalances, such as premenstrual tension and menopause.
If you have any of the issues listed above or any other health issues not listed please contact us to make an appointment.

6. Atlas PROfilax
The AtlasProFilax method is the Swiss-discovered modality used by Humanergetic therapist and certified Atlasprof, Neil Pont, as a primary and curative treatment. It is a soft tissue procedure that corrects the first cervical vertebra known as the atlas. This correction is not an adjustment but a powerful relocation that immediately activates a self-healing and harmonising process within the individual.
The method is unique worldwide in being able to correct a misaligned atlas, with only one application, accurately, safely and permanently. Once freed from the tension and the old holding pattern, the atlas repositions naturally into place. No chiropractic techniques are used; no cracking; no torquing; and no hands.
The gentle soft tissue treatment of the sub-occipital muscles creates an environment that allows the muscles to hydrate, unwind and elongate. That inspires regeneration not only structurally but spiritually, stimulating the harmony and balance necessary for the body, mind and spirit to elevate to their full potential.
More than 20 years ago in Switzerland, the discoverer of the AtlasProFilax method, René Claudius Schümperli, made two very important findings. The first was that he was able to make a safe, permanent correction to the Atlas in one session, allowing it to shift sufficient to re-establish and stabilise the atlanto-occipital joint. The second observation was that most of his patients (with a small exception) also had a misaligned atlas.
This misalignment may lead to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses, and can be responsible for pain and discomfort anywhere in the body.
