The Information contained on this website has been correlated by the professional practitioners at Body Consultancy Portchester to inform you of the services we provide and the conditions we treat.
This information is based on the latest scientific research and gives us the most accurate picture in regard to our scope of practice within the clinic. In no clinical case can we at Body Consultancy guarantee a successful outcome. The prognosis for any clinical presentation of a patient depends on too many variables to guarantee success.
We do not treat complaints where there is no scientific evidence that our treatment modalities taken individually or as a whole programme may be successful.
