Nicola Lowe BA (hons) Dip CSSM (ISRM) O.A.Dip
Soft Tissue Therapy 

Initially qualifying with a BA degree from the University of Chichester with a special interest in manipulation therapy I worked for over a decade as a Dance and PE Teacher. I then decided to change course and retrained with the Cambridge School of Sports Massage, a branch of the LSSM led by global soft tissue therapy pioneer Mel Cash. Fully insured and ISRM regulated as well as DBS checked I have been running the Evergreen Clinic for 6 years in Oundle treating patients from 12-90 years old. With a special interest in complex conditions such as Parkinson’s I don’t claim to solve all your problems but I know it can make a difference. Soft tissue therapy can be used to treat all common aches and pains, pre and post op, acute and chronic pain and complex medical conditions. I am constantly developing my skills with additional training in pelvis and shoulder and most recently, (during lockdown) a diploma in counselling and level 2 mental health awareness qualification.

 

What is Soft Tissue Therapy?

Soft tissue therapy is a manipulation of all the soft tissues of the body including muscle, skin, connective tissues, ligaments and tendons involving assessment, treatment and management. Remedial massage is one of the most effective ways to prevent and treat muscular injuries and soreness and is also proven to boost the immune system. Whilst massage is one of the tools in our kit it is not the only one and by combining a range of advanced techniques we can create an individualised treatment plan designed around each persons needs. At Evergreen Clinic we look at the body as a whole and aim to deal with the causes and symptoms and offer after care that can relieve problems where possible long term empowering YOU to manage your own pain.

Louise Goulding (PGDip), mBANT, CNHC
Nutritional Therapist

Hi. I am Louise, a Registered Nutritional Therapist. My primary focus is helping those suffering from debilitating skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis and rosacea to feel beautifully confident. But I also work with clients wanting to lose weight as well as those suffering from gut problems, such as IBS and hormone imbalances.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy looks at the underlying imbalances in your body and aims to address these as opposed to simply treating the symptom. It’s not a one size fits all approach though. We are all very different to one another and so your nutritional therapy plan will be unique to you, taking into account your history, lifestyle, dietary preferences, genetics, environment, family history… and so much more.

My three step programme starts with nourishing your body with nutrient rich foods. We then look at restoring and rebalancing areas of your body which need this support. Finally we focus on making time for you through movement, relaxation and sleep.

My qualifications

I graduated with a postgraduate degree in Personalised Nutrition from the renowned Centre for Nutrition Education and Lifestyle Management. Following this I have undertook additional training with the Institute of Functional Medicine, completing modules in Gut Health, Inflammation, Women’s Hormones, Cardiometabolic Disease, Mitochondria and Energy and Toxic Load as part of Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice. 

Alongside this I hold an NLP certification and as such include coaching support throughout your programme with me. I have also undertaken training in the Psychology of Weight Loss, and am able to help you identify and address unhelpful eating habits that are getting in the way of you achieving your goals. 

If you would like to find out more then get in touch. I offer all clients a free 30 minute call to discuss your health concerns, and explore whether nutritional therapy is right for you.

Rika Kamper BSc (Hons) IFMCP, mBANT

Nutritional Therapist and Functional Medicine Practitioner

I was born in South Africa but have lived most of my adult life in the UK. Participation in sport from an early age sparked my interest in the interaction between what we eat and how well we perform.

Furthermore, a family history of cancer and mental health issues has made me conscious of the genetic influences on health and how nutrition can affect our moods and behaviour.

My passion and quest for knowledge about nutrition and health led me to study at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London, where I qualified as a nutritional therapist in 2011. I upgraded my qualification at Middlesex University, where I received a First Class Honours degree in Nutritional Therapy in 2014.

 

I am also a Certified Practitioner of the Institute for Functional Medicine in the USA. Gaining this qualification required attending Advanced Practice Modules in Clinical Practice, Gastrointestinal Health, Immune Function, Hormones, Detoxification, Cardiometabolic Systems and Energy, as well as a comprehensive examination and case submission. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease through a systems-biology approach. It takes into account the environmental, genetic, dietary and lifestyle factors that determine an individual’s state of health. For more information on the functional medicine approach see www.functionalmedicine.org

 

As part of my continual professional development, I regularly attend lectures to stay abreast of the latest research in the fascinating field of nutrition. We are all unique combinations of food, lifestyle and exercise choices, genetics and most of the time, unavoidable toxins from our environment.

As a healthcare professional, I am dedicated to applying my nutritional knowledge to make a positive difference in my clients’ lives.

I see clients with a wide range of health conditions, ranging from digestive issues, hormone imbalances, skin conditions, problems with blood glucose and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
