A north Northumberland therapist has joined the growing team at an Alnwick clinic.

Sarah Owston has recently moved in to the Wagonway Road-based Northern Integrative Health Practice (NIHP).

The experienced 39-year-old, who runs Avenue House Therapies and also splits her time between Berwick and the Scottish borders, will be in Alnwick on Thursdays and open until 8pm.

She will offer a range of services, including the Bowen Technique, which can be used for pain management, sports injuries, asthma, fatigue and other things.

It uses a gentle rolling action over soft tissue to create a profound signal to the brain.

Sarah will also offer Bach flower remedies and the Hopi earcandling technique.

She is excited to be part of the clinic in Alnwick, adding: “It has gone well so far and it means that I am able to reach more people and it is nice to be incorporated into a team.”

Osteopathy Unlimited, headed by Paul Tutleman, has been based at the Alnwick clinic for more than a decade and Sarah says that the two companies can feed off one another, describing it as being like an inhouse referral service.

NIHP Alnwick also offers a message therapy service on Fridays, courtesy of Emma Mathewson, and physiotherapy by Judy Ingram on Mondays. Acupuncture and exercise rehabilitation is expected soon.

Associate osteopath, Clare Allan, who is based in Alnwick said: “We want to get the message out that a lot of things are happening in this building and they are there for the community.”
