ABOUT OUR TEAM
After graduating from Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2004 with a Bachelor Degree in Health Science Acupuncture I continued my education into Japanese Meridian Acupuncture and use both modalities easily within my practice.
I consider myself fortunate with the expert teachers we have available in the world of acupuncture today. The combined knowledge, clinical expertise and genuine excitement in sharing this information exists in the acupuncture community, and is truly inspirational. I thank every single person who is willing to share and encourage others in the pursuit of this profession.
Chinese Medicine observed the very early signs of the body's aging process and created a treatment process to help the body reverse these symptoms. It is extraordinary that this medicine was developed so long ago and we have a great opportunity to use it in our very blessed society.
I look forward to introducing you to your body from the Chinese Medicine perspective.

I first began my studies into remedial massage in 1995. By 2004 I was given the opportunity to learn visceral manipulation (working with the organs of the body and surrounding tissue).
Eight years of running my own practice has gone quickly and over that time I have taken great enjoyment from my continued training with numerous professionals in the body work industry. But as my clients will confirm my passion is for the visceral work.
What is Visceral Work you ask? Well, through the Visceral Manipulation training I have found that by releasing the organs of the body from restrictions, that muscular and skeletal restrictions were able to release where my previous methods were unable to get long term movement and function back.
My goal for all my clients is to help them to achieve and hold onto a better level of health. For some that is to have no reflux or digestive bloating, for other clients it is for their chronic pain and headaches. Some interesting releases have helped bladder retention issues, menstrual issues, sleeping difficulties and many more issues their body can conceive.
I believe in working on the body as a whole and trying to get to the root of a persons problems, or to help them find the right treatment if I cannot help.
I moved to Ultra Health Therapies in 2011 to be in a clinic with multiple modalities for that very reason, and am enjoying working with and learning from a group of like minded people.

Bradley James Buchanan
My name is Bradley James Buchanan. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I specialise in individuals who suffer from Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Trauma’s and Child Birthing. I assist them to learn skills and to utilise their own resources to take back control in their life.
An excellent Clinical Hypnotherapist and Reiki teacher inspired my fascination and passion for mind energetics, after an accident left me paralysed for 11 days, as a young man driven to conquer the world. At that point, my life dramatically changed as I experienced a life of chronic pain and depression due to the swelling around my spinal cord. With a changed perspective of life, I became a teacher in Reiki and have trained many students in various workshops. My interest in how the mind worked grew and I discovered that, although each individual is unique, the core of mind and body issues is restricted to very few areas of improvement. I have spent years studying Hypnotherapy and have become a highly qualified Hypnotherapist. With a firsthand experience on a life of chronic pain and having overcome this chronic disease, I indulged my time between researching the psychological effects of living with pain and providing a treatment programme to assist individuals to take back control of their lives to enjoy quality life again.
The devastating impact on the daily life of an individual with chronic pain seen as stress and tension causes a distention and simultaneous tightening of the muscles producing additional excruciating pain. This disrupts other areas of individual’s life such as the sleep cycle which arises to restless nights and subsequently, fatigue and exhaustion. These individuals express negative emotions such as anger and frustration causing an increase and worsening of the perception of pain. This gives rise to a vicious cycle as the pain increases and the negative emotions get stronger. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist experienced in management of chronic pain, I assist these individuals in managing their pain by working together on ‘healing’ a response to it through restoring their physical and emotional well-being and avoiding the occurrence of very serious conditions such as extreme depression, anxiety, panic attacks, mood disorders and isolation.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I working along with their healthcare professionals to assist these individuals by tailoring their treatment programmes to meet their individual needs. I believe the effectiveness of any treatment programme depends very much on the quality of the therapeutic alliance between me and you and as such, I work together with them not just to decrease the pain levels but to in addition, use proven language skills and techniques to really make sure that I and the individual understand where he/she is now and his/her desired outcome/where they want to be. I share these skills with these individual to enable them to be able to practice them and to maintain whatever their desired outcome is. These new skills acquired will not just help with the existing problem, but also, will naturally help with other issues such as restoring back the sleeping patterns, improving the individual’s ability to shift away attention away from pain, managing weight levels, increasing improvements in other areas of life, increasing memory and concentration, building self confidence, self esteem and self assurance So, when you are ready I look forward to discussing this further to take you from where you are today to where you want to be. If you have any further questions I offer a free 15 minute free phone to discuss how I can help you today.
