Chinese Nutritional Advice
As a child I found speaking to people difficult, so instead I watched and I felt peoples energy keenly.
This intuitive development has helped to develop my sensitivity as a practitioner. I use the pulse reading at your wrist and how your tongue presents, as a guide to which acupuncture points I use. I offer more than just inserting needles. I build an integral map of your health which allows me to forecast accurately, how many sessions you may need, the improvements you can expect and what will happen in future and where caution needs to be taken. Coupled with nutrition, Chinese herbs and western supplement knowledge, you benefit from a fully-rounded integrated holistic plan of your health, which may involve other professionals, such as GPs or Fertility Clinics, or other practitioners. The objective is to get you well, or pregnant and stay well and deliver.

I have been obsessed with Acupuncture! When I first had treatment back in 1997, I couldnt believe how I felt afterwards. That feeling inspired me to transform my life to get to study at an Acupuncture college.
Working with womens health has been truly inspirational hormones are amazing little peptides and I have spent many thousands of hours, using a combination of techniques alongside Acupuncture to treat them so that menstrual cycles are regulated, fertility hormones are produced and pregnancy hormones are stimulated for birth.
I use direct massage, cupping therapy and an amazing little gadget called an Electro-Acupuncture machine, which penetrates muscles and transforms pain quickly. I have never known a treatment not to work.
In fact, any type of condition labelled by western professionals can be treated by Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I am not a practitioner who just sticks in needles and lets you cook. I am curious as to WHY you are unwell, how quickly we can get improvements. If you are trying to conceive, either naturally or with IVF I can guide you through the labyrinth of IVF drugs and treatment protocols and make suggestions as to how you can maximise your budget and treatment. Some would call me a fertility coach. I simply work with you to appreciate what works for you, what sits well with you. And when you are having a crisis of confidence, I pick you up and set you back on the positive path.
Sounds to good to be true?

What People Say
Went there yesterday for my first yoga session. It's a great little place. Didn't know it was there until a few months ago. I also go there often to have a massage which I love!
Love the Qigong classes Ben runs. Professional, safe and informative. Thanks Ben
I used the centre to help training and preparation for a marathon. As well as getting some great advice around technique and training, I was also introduced to Bowen Technique which helped repair a slight hamstring injury and also Kinesiology which allowed me to design a bespoke training diet. Would definitely recommend.
I had four Bowen sessions each about three weeks apart, after the first session I felt a notable difference in my posture and in the strength of my spine, strangely I felt taller. By the fourth session I knew that my discomfort had been resolved and I am now able to move much more freely and flexibly without worrying about my back.
Wow! As I left my session with the amazingly knowledgeable Ben Calder I said: I feel lighter! I feel so light because I now know what my body does and does not like. I cannot stop talking to everyone about how amazing Ben is! Everyone should go and see him! What an amazing soul Ben is! Super grateful that our lives crossed
Before I had a series of Bowen sessions I had lived with lower back pain and discomfort for over ten years. I chose the Bowen technique as I wanted to be treated by a practitioner who understood that the body is a whole system. The technique itself is not invasive or stressful on the body as the underlying approach is that with the right support, time and gentle encouragement the body can heal.
Had several neuro-energetic kinesiology appointments at the Centre and found the experience to be very beneficial and eye-opening. Would recommend to anyone. 5 star
Got an appointment through really quickly. The staff were really friendly and made the procedures and testing easy to understand throughout, step by step. Really pleased with the outcome. Finally got the answers I was looking for and would highly recommend.
Went very well. Was very happy with how friendly and welcoming it all was, and the treatment was at the highest quality.
I was very impressed by the service from Integral Health. I was contacted and offered an appointment immediately after contacting the centre. Ben Calder gave me excellent advice and managed to sort out my issues in only one session.I would highly recommend this clinic.
I would like to thank Wan, for a deep tissue and stone massage, it's an experience that I've never had before, already booked for next week, I would recommend this to anyone, please look at there website as there are numerous things to do within the complex.
I highly recommend the Centre for Integral Health. I've been here for multiple sessions with Ben Calder, and honestly, you need to go and experience it for yourself. Friendly, professional and just a generally positive experience all around! The Centre offers such a range of services, I can't wait to try out a few of the other therapies they offer!
Great service from Ben and his team. If you want your aches and pains sorting out or if you feel your life just isn't in balance you really should give Integral Health a try...
