Parkinson's Disease Management at Omnia London

Helping to manage symptoms…

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder characterised by tremors, stiffness, slow movement, and difficulties with balance and coordination. It can also lead to non-motor symptoms such as mood changes and cognitive impairments. While medical treatments are available, holistic approaches offer a multidimensional way to manage symptoms and promote well-being.

1. Ayurveda:

Balancing Energies

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian healing system, focuses on the balance between mind, body, and spirit. In the context of Parkinson’s, Ayurvedic treatments aim to harmonise energies and alleviate symptoms.

  • Diet and Nutrition: Ayurvedic dietary recommendations support overall well-being and help manage specific symptoms.
  • Herbal Therapies: Certain herbs are believed to have neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Panchakarma: Detoxification therapies can help eliminate toxins and restore balance.

Therapies we offer to help manage Parkinson’s Disease:

2. Yoga:

Cultivating Physical and Mental Agility

Yoga’s combination of physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation can benefit individuals with Parkinson’s by enhancing flexibility, promoting relaxation, and improving mood.

  • Gentle Asanas: Modified Yoga poses improve flexibility, alleviate muscle stiffness, and enhance overall mobility.
  • Breath Awareness: Pranayama techniques provide oxygenation to brain cells and promote relaxation.
  • Mindfulness Meditation: Meditation supports emotional well-being and mental clarity.

3. Acupuncture:

Restoring Vital Energy Flow

Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese therapy, involves stimulating specific points on the body to restore the flow of vital energy (Qi). It may alleviate muscle rigidity, tremors, and overall discomfort.

  • Muscle Relaxation: Acupuncture may help reduce muscle rigidity and alleviate tremors.
  • Stress Reduction: Acupuncture’s calming effect can improve emotional well-being.

4. Photobiomodulation:

Illuminating Hope

Photobiomodulation, or light therapy, stimulates cellular processes using specific light wavelengths. It shows promise in supporting brain health and possibly slowing disease progression.

  • Cellular Stimulation: Light therapy may enhance cellular energy production, potentially benefiting brain cells.
  • Neuroprotection: Photobiomodulation’s anti-inflammatory effects may support brain health.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Should my doctor know?2024-02-22T12:16:41+00:00

If you have been prescribed medication, we recommend that you inform your GP that you are considering Ayurveda therapy. You should continue your regular medication. During the initial consultation, your Ayurveda consultant will advise you of contraindications such as high fever and severe renal and cardiac diseases. You may also be referred to your GP if the Ayurvedic physician treating you recognises a risk during your consultation or even after treatment.

What oils will be used?2024-02-22T12:14:32+00:00

In Ayurveda, sesame oil is considered the queen of all oils because it has active principles that produce health benefits. Cured sesame oil should be used for this purpose, as the heating converts weak antioxidants into a potent antioxidant substance known as sesamol. Moreover, medicated herbal oils are used to treat specific conditions. For example, for arthritic problems, oils containing herbs that are Vata and Kapha-pacifying and have anti-inflammatory properties will be used. For anxiety, herbs possessing adaptogenic action, such as Ashwagandha, will be used.

Should I keep oil on body for a long time?2024-02-13T17:04:53+00:00

There is no harm in keeping oil on your skin or hair for a long period of time. However, you can remove the oil immediately after the treatment. We also have a shower facility, if required.

Is Photobiomodulation safe?2024-02-22T15:23:29+00:00

Yes, Photobiomodulation is considered safe when used appropriately. The light used in these treatments is non-ionising and generally doesn’t cause harm. However, it’s important to follow proper guidelines and consult a healthcare professional if you have concerns.

Does Photobiomodulation hurt?2023-09-07T14:22:53+00:00

Photobiomodulation is usually painless. Patients might feel a mild warmth or tingling sensation during the treatment, but it’s generally well-tolerated.

How long does a Photobiomodulation session last?2023-09-07T14:23:28+00:00

Session lengths can vary based on the specific treatment and area being treated, but they typically range from a few minutes to around 20-30 minutes.

Is Acupuncture safe for children?2024-02-22T14:15:44+00:00

Yes, it is safe for children and babies. In some cases, children respond more quickly to acupuncture than adults. If your child has an aversion to needles, the practitioner may recommend Acupressure or Tui Na Massage.

Two independent surveys published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) concluded that the risk of serious adverse injury from acupuncture is less than 1 in 10,000, significantly less than most conventional treatments. The needles used are single-use, sterile, and disposable.

How many sessions are needed to see results?2023-09-07T14:24:08+00:00

The number of sessions required varies depending on the condition being treated and individual response. Some people might experience benefits after just a few sessions, while others might need a greater number of sessions to achieve the desired results.

How many Acupuncture sessions will I need?2024-02-22T14:16:22+00:00

Treatment frequency and the number of sessions required depend on several factors, including your constitution, mental state, the severity and duration of the health condition, lifestyle habits, and the quantity and quality of your Qi. Acupuncturists believe that health determinants are unique to each individual. Typically, some change is noticed within 5 or 6 treatments, although occasionally 1 or 2 treatments may suffice. Chronic conditions typically require more time to resolve than acute ones.

Is Photobiomodulation suitable for everyone?2024-02-22T15:08:12+00:00

While generally safe, Photobiomodulation may present contraindications for individuals with conditions such as claustrophobia, photosensitivity, active skin infections or cancerous lesions, photosensitive seizure, and pregnancy. We recommend consulting a healthcare professional before undergoing any treatment.

Should my doctor know?2024-02-22T14:17:31+00:00

If you have been prescribed medication, we recommend that you let your GP know that you are considering acupuncture therapy. You should continue your regular medication. During the initial consultation, your acupuncturist will advise you of any contraindications, such as metal allergy, haemophilia, or if you take strong anti-coagulant medication. You may also be referred to your GP if the acupuncturist treating you recognizes any risks during your consultation or even after treatment.

Are there any side effects of Photobiomodulation?2023-09-07T14:25:16+00:00

Side effects are rare and generally mild. They might include temporary redness, slight discomfort, or irritation in the treated area. These effects usually subside quickly.

What does the treatment feel like?2024-02-22T14:18:26+00:00

Many people avoid acupuncture because they think needles will hurt. Acupuncture needles are very small in diameter, approximately twice as large as the average diameter of human hair and 10 times smaller than the average diameter of a standard hypodermic needle. Most people find acupuncture calm and relaxing. Patients often describe the needle sensation as a tingling or dull ache. This is a sign that the Qi is being stimulated and released, indicating that the treatment is working. At Omnia, we also offer Electroacupuncture and Fu Needle treatments, which minimise any fear or discomfort caused by needles.

How long do the effects of Photobiomodulation last?2023-09-07T14:25:46+00:00

The duration of effects can vary based on the individual, condition treated, and maintenance. Some people experience longer-lasting results with consistent treatment.

Is Acupuncture available in the NHS? Will it be covered by Private Health Insurance?2024-02-22T14:09:23+00:00

Acupuncture is sometimes available on the NHS from GP practices and physiotherapists, as well as in most pain clinics and hospices in the UK. Most acupuncture patients pay for private treatment. As the demand for complementary medicine increases, more private health insurance companies such as AVIVA and BUPA are beginning to offer coverage for acupuncture.

Is Photobiomodulation covered by insurance?2024-02-22T14:54:31+00:00

Insurance coverage varies. Some medical conditions and contexts might receive coverage, but you should check with your insurance provider.

Why is your tongue assessed?2024-02-27T14:24:45+00:00

The tongue acts like a barometer, reflecting the health and well-being of your internal meridians and organs. The Acupuncturist will look at the general characteristics of the tongue such as colour, shape, cracks and coating on it to get an idea of how your body is functioning on a macro level.

Why is your pulse assessed?2024-02-27T14:25:03+00:00

There are 12 pulse positions on each wrist that the Acupuncturist will palpate. Each position corresponds to a specific meridian or organ system. An Acupuncturist observes the quality of your pulse looking for certain characteristics that reflect your overall health such as pulse rate and strength and the width of each pulse. This allows the Acupuncturist to pinpoint which imbalance is causing the symptom of the disease.

Why do Acupuncturists recommend Herbs?2024-02-27T14:26:13+00:00

Herbs can be a powerful adjunct to Acupuncture therapy. They are used to strengthen, build and support the body or clear it of excess problems like a cold, fever or acute pain. To build up your internal strength, your Acupuncturist may suggest starting with herbs and then undergo Acupuncture for a better outcome.

Does Ayurvedic medicine have side effects?2024-02-22T12:23:42+00:00

There can be a detox effect, which can take the form of mild flu-like symptoms or a rash. This is usually a normal reaction and indicates that the herbs are doing their job. Sometimes the reaction can be stronger, and usually, the practitioner makes an adjustment in the dosage. It is important to make your practitioner aware of any known allergies.

How many Ayurveda sessions will I need?2024-02-22T12:21:25+00:00

Treatment frequency and the number of treatments needed depend on several factors: your constitution, mental state, the severity and duration of the health condition, and lifestyle habits. Occasionally, the pain relief can be felt immediately after treatment, but for lasting and effective results, a minimum of 4–6 treatments are recommended. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute conditions.
