The Honor Oak Wellness Rooms

Vivien writes:

The Honor Oak Wellness Rooms is a newly opened health and wellness space at 82 Brockley Rise [formerly Tai Wu Chinese restaurant] that specialises in chiropractic care to help manage pain and improve health.

We also offer yoga to improve fitness and well-being, with other therapies coming soon to the clinic. Our aim is to help our community live a pain free and healthy life. The types of conditions we treat include back and neck pain, lower back pain, shoulder and arm pain, sports injuries, migraines and headaches, trapped nerves and many more painful conditions.

As born and bred locals ourselves, we are really excited to finally share our wellness agenda with the local community (after a year in the build). We will be offering more therapies such as massage therapy, sports therapy and exciting workshops/ free health talks in the upcoming months.

As an introductory offer, we are offering a free consultation and treatment for new patients with our chiropractor until the end of March (worth £60). Check us out at www.honoroakwellnessrooms.com

Perhaps the 'mission statement' should read:
"Our aim is to help our community (that is, the people who can afford our services) live a pain free and healthy life. Others less well off will have to continue to suffer."

Do you apply that same standard to all other businesses?


*So you sell tins of baked beans to those who can afford to buy them, do you? Everyone else can just starve to death, can then they?!*

I agree. Mercedes won't give me a car just because I can't afford to pay for one. Disgusting

Perhaps you should lobby the government for these treatments to be included within the NHS Budget rather than aiming a snarky comment at a new business that is simply trying to get up and running...
PS Best of luck to the people starting this new venture. Ignore the haters!

Agree, except I'd be pissed off if they start offering alternative therapies like chiropractics on the NHS.

No, they can go to a food bank

Actually I've been told I need chiropractic treatment for an issue with the radial nerve. As it's a proper condition and why shouldn't it be done on the NHS?

AliAfro said...

Agreed - spend the money on the proven treatments. Interstingly the NHS website says that chiropractics is proven to some degree and it is available on the NHS to some extent: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chiropractic/Pages/Introduction.aspx

NHS can pay

Brockley Nick said...

Fair dos, I thought it was still in the quackery column. If it's proven to work, that's fine - by definition it's no longer an alternative therapy.

anon said...

Well it is already partly paid by NHS, also by private insurance...

AliAfro said...

Just to placate my pedantry - according to the NHS site, it is still quack science and therefor classed as alternative medicine - eg no, manipulating your bones probably wont cure diseases etc - but studies have shown that it can be effective in certain circumstances, such as dealing with lower back pain...

"Wellness" is not a word

Max Calò said...

Not to be a pedant, but I think that if it expresses a meaning in an understandable way then it is a word.
