Cycles of Change is a strong, united team led by registered Doctor, Dr. Carolyn Eddleston MBBS.Dip.Ac.MBAc.C. We care about the new vision of health that we deliver.
Initial contact is with the practitioner most qualified to guide you to the most appropriate treatment options. Traditional Chinese Medicine excels at honouring the individual and their connection with the cycles of life and nature. Our therapies offer far more than a reduction in pain – although they are very effective at that. They actively support your health. People come with a wide range of complaints about their physical and mental health. Our ongoing work is to ensure that we do not join people in their despair, but provide hope and possibility for change in a more positive direction. We work on your internal world, restoring it to a more balanced environment, encouraging healing.
Health is not just an absence of symptoms and there is not one fix for all. Health is a feeling of ease and flow in the body and mind and the ability to adapt to what life throws at us. It does not matter what our current reality is, or how distressed we feel. When we are given a healing environment and a space to share our story, relax, and receive treatment from someone that we trust, we begin to change, and the body knows what to do...

Some of the conditions that we support:
I am highly impressed with all aspects of Cycles of Change, including the building and parking; the ease of a getting appointment; the ease of changing an appointment; the knowledge, skills and expertise of the practitioner; and, the treatment provided. It is very refreshing to have a practitioner who is genuinely interested in the holistic care/needs of a patient. An outstanding experience, with a positive result, and I very much look forward to my next appointment. SN
I first visited Kerry for Shiatsu whilst trying to find a solution for a health problem and initially I came once a week for 4/5 weeks to try and get myself completely balanced. When I had my bunion operation I found that my foot became very swollen and I couldn’t seem to get it to go down. Kerry gave me one treatment for this and massaged my leg and foot and it went back to normal and didn't return! I have since then seen Kerry on a regular basis usually once a month. I find Kerry very intuitive and she seems to know just what I need! Her treatments are done whilst you are fully clothed in loose clothing and it is very unobtrusive and incredibly relaxing. I look forward to my treatments and find them very beneficial. Trish L
As a regular to the Cycles of Change clinic, I know how remarkable and effective the treatments are and how professional, caring and insightful the practitioners are. Taking Carolyn’s advice I tried Shiatsu for the first time and didn’t really know what to expect. Having had lots of normal massage in the past, I thought I knew vaguely what to expect, but I was wrong. Shiatsu is about balancing, I learnt, about conditioning the body and it’s energies for the body to improve itself, working with acupressure and also the four elements, water, fire, earth and air to re align the body. Having met Kerry for the first appointment in the treatment room which is absolute serenity, she exemplified this. Calm, collected and so interesting to talk to, Kerry starts each treatment with some time to talk, to say what is going on, what is difficult, what the struggles are. Talking them through with Kerry, not only does that help with the healing process of anything from mental issues to body functions, it helps her to be able to create a treatment based around them and to think in much more depth about how you feel. The treatment itself seems very peculiar to begin with, and I must say I had a chuckle. Having my arms slightly wiggled and placed in unusual positions as well as pressure which creates sometimes sensations that are unusual is strange to start with, but I knew it was me who had to relax into it. Treatments are always fully clothed on one of the most comfortable beds known to man. Starting with some initial breathing takes you into the treatment proper. With a mix of deep and light pressure on meridian points across the body relevant to your ailments, the treatment lulls you into a moment of complete mindfulness and calm. Kerry is incredible at what she does, her knowledge and way she applies it knowing everyone on a personal level is incredible. The Shiatsu massage is never painful, never daunting and never uncomfortable. It is relaxing, awakening and interesting with some of the emotional feelings you experience and in terms of the power of the lightness of pressure and the release within muscles and tissues, I always have lots of questions for Kerry afterwards. I would recommend the treatment to anyone. Finding things that work for you is the most important thing. People always band certain types of alternative medicine together. I think this is wrong. Everything should be tried, I believe, and then see how you feel, what your experience was and how your body reacted. I see Kerry for Shiatsu and Carolyn for acupuncture, together with some techniques I learnt from Tai Chi and the mindfulness course, I can see an improvement throughout my life and the way that I conduct myself. Incredible people in a very important team that treats so many people with such incredible care. Ben Fern
