We Are Moving
Some people may have seen the ‘Sold’ sign outside the clinic. However, we continue to operate as normal but having been located in Colinton Mains for over 15 years we will be moving in August 2022. However, we’re only going up the road to Hunter’s Tryst. Our new address will be 108 Oxgangs Road, EH10 7AZ, just opposite the pub! Everything else remains the same and we look forward to welcoming you in our new clinic.
We Are Open
Both our clinics are open, albeit with a slight reduced availability due to new working practises.
There are changes within the clinic environment as couch covers and all linens have been removed and replaced with plastic couch and pillow covers. There are also additional cleaning protocols in place and a time gap between patients to keep everyone safe. The practitioners will continue wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) for the time being.
Although the nature of our work means maintaining social distancing is not always possible we aim to keep you you as safe as we can.
Are you in pain? We are here to help.
Welcome to the Peachey Therapy Clinic, a busy, friendly practice offering Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Medical Accupuncture, Podiatry/Chiropody and Sports and Remedial Massage. We have sites in both Edinburgh and Loanhead. Here our aim is to consider the patient as an individual. As well as treating the presenting symptoms we also try to establish their cause, as well as provide the patient with lifestyle and self-management advice to help prevent a re-occurrence. We also advise on the benefits of maintenance treatment to help keep the body in a state of health and avoid problems arising in the first place.
Unfortunately we are, generally, very bad at looking after our bodies. We would think nothing of spending money on a meal, servicing our cars or even a new pair of shoes (that we may only wear once!!). However, unlike all these transient items our bodies are for life so treating it well and servicing it regularly is a worthwhile, lifelong investment.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns before booking a consultation. Alternatively, if appropriate, to enable you to discuss your symptoms before undertaking treatment we offer a 15 minute FREE ASSESSMENT with the Osteopath or Podiatrist.
This is now available at our Loanhead clinic. Experienced practitioner Beverly Herne is able to offer a wide range of services:
- hearing tests for adults and children
- help with tinnitus and dizziness
- ear wax removal
- cognitive behaviour therapy
To find out more about their complete list of services or to book an appointment please see their website Edinburgh Audiology Clinic.
Working From Home
Many people are now working from home again so remember it is therefore important to ensure you have, as is practically possible, a decent workstation.
One patient has already injured their back after sitting on a dining chair for 7 hours a day! So follow the same principles as in your office:
- Sitting on a chair (preferable with arms) which is the correct height relative to the table at which you are sitting and you can get your feet flat on the floor
- Ensure the screen is at eye level – if you only have a laptop this may mean putting the laptop on something and then buying a separate keyboard and mouse
- Using a chair with good back support – or adding back support to another chair albeit a roll-up towel – and not perching on the edge of the seat
- Make sure the seat of the chair is padded or sit on something soft
- Take regular breaks and drink plenty of water
There are lots of videos and websites that can give you advice but a couple are:
Obviously you can improvise without purchasing all the specific items, but if you are going to be on a laptop for any length of time a separate keyboard and mouse is a worthwhile investment to enable you to get your screen at eye level.
If you have any questions regarding this please contact us.
