Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy

Do you have back issues, neck pain or foot problems? If you have acute pain and have a musculoskeletal pathology that has not responded to conservative treatments such as physiotherapy, rest, steroid injection, ice therapy and pain killers, Shockwave therapy could give you the relief you need. It’s a modern, safe and highly effective therapy treatment.

So often, people suffering with acute pain try to manage or face surgery. Shockwave Therapy can provide a successful alternative to surgery. Over the past 13 years it has progressed from a procedure for the treatment of urological solutions to a practice being used by some of the best sports teams in the world to keep their athletes in peak condition. Awareness of this type of treatment has been slow to filter from the professionals to the general population, but I am very fortunate to be able to offer this service to my clients.

High intensity waves are passed through the skin to painful areas of muscle and tendon. These break down scar tissue and calcific deposits in damaged tissues, increasing blood flow to the area and stimulating the body’s natural healing process.

Shockwave therapy is perfect for the treatment of most sports injuries such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis. It is also effective in treating injuries of the shoulder, lower back, hip and knee.

Shockwave has been proven as an effective, safe and non-invasive treatment option for tendinopathies and other pathologies of the musculoskeletal system in a multitude of high-quality randomised control trials. (Vasileios Dedes et al, 2018, Effectiveness of safety of shockwave therapy in tendoninopathies, Mater Sociomed).

A review by the NCBI proves that it can help and may prevent medical intervention stating that Shockwave Therapy reduces pain and increases function. More importantly, it shows that the beneficial effects are maintained over the 6 months post treatment. This is fantastic news for anyone who is suffering pain!

I arranged for Martha to see my 10 year old son who had been suffering from unexplained headaches, tiredness, stomach ache, feeling dizzy and sickness. His GP had prescribed medicine but I wanted to explore a different treatment path. Martha assessed my son both physically and emotionally, talking with him at the same time as providing healing treatment. He described feelings of tingling during the healing and felt lighter and positive afterwards. He woke with energy the following morning and has done so for most mornings since. More importantly, he has suffered from no headaches at all since. We also have a good understanding of what vitamins he is lacking and which foods will help him. Thank you so much, Martha, I have no hesitation in referring you to others.


I started talking with Martha about complementary support for fertility when I felt it was taking longer than I would have hoped to conceive for the second time. Having a very demanding job and an even more demanding toddler was taking its toll and I had little time to relax and focus. The sessions with Martha were comfortable, open and positive. I felt able to speak honestly and that this then helped Martha with the support given. The acupuncture allowed my mind to be still and my body let go for that short period. I fell pregnant around 6 months after first seeing Martha. Martha is a wonderful therapist
and a practitioner I would highly recommend.


Martha, something about your energy
really made me open up my heart more than ever before.
When I talk you really listen. Giving me your full attention has allowed you to get deep into my core. This is a rare gift. I thank you for your healing. Namaste.


I would recommend Martha to anyone looking to bring balance to your life and to those that want tools to create this balance. Before the program, my biggest frustration was my weight gain. I had tried what feels like almost everything before from the latest greatest fad diet to psychotherapy. I enjoyed most the discovery and the tools I learned to keep me on track. Today, I feel my past is my past and I live here in the present.


I have been a believer and follower of complementary and alternative therapies for the past 30 years and have had treatments from many therapists for a variety of ailments. My first session with Martha was unlike anything I had previously encountered. She appeared to ‘sense’ and ‘feel’ emotions and past experiences in my life that were having an ongoing impact on my body. Martha led me through areas that needed to be addressed and as days went by I found that I genuinely was able to examine, reassess and often resolve mental and physical aspects that had been – sometimes unknowingly – causing me difficulties. I don’t understand how Martha can ‘read’ my internal misalignments but I know that after a session with her I definitely feel the result and confidently anticipate our next meeting. I have recommended Martha to members of my family and friends as I believe that she has a unique gift.


Martha carried out a body scan on me where she explained what she could see where trauma and conflict were holding me back. She said that the cancer cells were there but they would be okay and that the emotional trauma surrounding these cells was due to the contact I had with some of the people in my life. I felt reassured, it was surreal, but Martha was able to explain further and the calmness and confidence helped me move forward with my treatment plan. I always recommend Martha to anyone who is stuck, or has emotional trauma or just needs a full on body treatment, to help heal.
