Is this your story?

Pain and problems to do with the pelvic area can be difficult to diagnose and treat. It is common to see both men and women who have suffered for years with symptoms and have had a number of different diagnoses from various consultants leading to lots of treatment and little success.

It is important to have the correct tests done, and for certain problems to be identified and treated using mainstream medical approaches where appropriate. But if those avenues have been exhausted, or if an integrated approach is preferred, then your next step is to see the New Medicine Group CP/CPPS special expert team, Pelvic People. We will assess you and tell you if referral to appropriate consultants and testing is needed.

“Pain perceived within the pelvis may arise from a range of different mechanisms, many of which remain poorly understood. Some conditions have become ‘well-defined’ over the years and it is very important that these are identified and treated by an evidence-based approach”

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
