Diagnostics

A sophisticated exercise test that analyses breath-by-breath how well the heart, arteries, veins and lungs are able to work together to transport oxygen to the muscles. The results provide useful information about the physiological response of the individual to exercise and identify any possible risk factors associated with one’s health status. A personalised fitness training programmes is then prescribed to improve health, fitness levels and weight loss, if necessary.

Assessment of your lung health by measuring how much air you can inhale and exhale, as well as how powerfully you can exhale. This can also help to identify the presence of airway obstructions. Lung function typically decreases with age due to physical inactivity and a reduction in elasticity of the rib cage.

A unique test that provides information about how the body reacts to different causes of stress, mental and emotional loads. The test examines how the heart is continuously adjusted by the autonomic nervous system to meet the demands (stressors) of daily life. It reveals the relationship between lifestyle and wellbeing and helps to identify the steps towards a healthier, fitter and more productive life.

This test accurately measures the body’s resting energy requirements in order to determine how much energy is required for maintaining essential bodily functions including breathing, circulation and consistant core temperature. It identifies metabolism substrate utilisation, guiding evaluation of nutrition therapies, dietary plans and improved nutrition for weight management.

The test provides precise data on soft tissues and bone composition at any part of the body, including lean and fat tissue mass and body fluids. These variables are used to set and monitor health, weight and fitness goals.

This test assesses the curvatures of the vertebral column (spine), the mobility of the joints and the weak links in the muscle chains. In time all these factors can lead to altered activity of the entire locomotive system and if left untreated as we age, it can lead to postural deformity, loss of physical performance, reduced active life and pain.

This test assesses maximum muscular forces, symmetry, strength endurance and balance skills with high precision measuring systems. Lean muscle mass naturally diminishes with age and strength training is a key component to preserve and enhance muscle mass at any age with important applications in a person’s functional ability.

Treatments

This is an effective treatment method for musculoskeletal pain and neuromuscular dysfunction by improving proprioception. Functional therapeutic exercises conducted in a suspension sling aims to improve physical functioning and restore pain-free movement patterns. Weaknesses and imbalances between muscles are corrected. Often immediate pain relief and improved function can be achieved.

This is a holistic approach of treatment which consists of physical manipulations, stretching and massage in order to increase the mobility of joints, relieve the muscle tension and pain, enhance the blood supply to tissues and help
the body to heal.

A holistic approach of treatment where a certified therapist assesses any postural imbalances and uses physical manipulations, stretching and massage in order to increase the mobility of joints, relieve the muscle tension and pain, enhance the blood supply to tissues and help the body to heal.

Using patented neuroscience technology, this treatment presents the brain with neurochemistry and auditory signals. By switching the nervous system from autonomic ‘fight or flight’ mode into parasympathetic system dominance, the body experiences deep relaxation and calmness.

This specialised equipment acts as both a wellness and rehabilitation tool by ‘unweighing’ and reducing their body weight that allows exercise with less pain and greater metabolic stimulation while reducing the risk of injury. It is used for weight loss programmes, strengthening and conditioning in a fall-safe environment, brain stimulation and for physical therapy following an injury or surgery.

Short intervals of breathing reduced oxygen concentration levels through a mask are interspersed with intervals of inhaling ambient air. The cumulative physiological adaptations associated with this type of training improve metabolism, provide superior enzymatic anti-oxidative defence, positively influence the immunological status and promote the overall health and wellness.

This treatment uses a treadmill with vacuum technology and allows a fat-burning training programme to target fat reduction and cellulite.
