Fred Carson - Practitioner of Osteopathy and Acupuncture

Fred Carson - Acupunture and Osteopath Carlisle and HawickFred Carson graduated from the College of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire  in 1981  and the European School of Osteopathy in Maidstone, Kent in 1983. He was co-founder and director of one of the largest acupuncture clinics in the country at Waterloo in London and was there for several years before returning to his roots in Cumbria to start a practice in Carlisle in 1988. The London clinic is still thriving today with over 20 acupuncture practitioners. He now practices from The Osteopathic and Acupuncture Clinic in Fisher Street, Carlisle and Phoenix Therapies in Drumlanrig Square, Hawick.

Fred  treats people of all ages for a large variety of different conditions. Due to his osteopathic training he is particularly experienced in musculo-skeletal problems of all kinds. He has spent much effort over the years looking at the relationship between acupuncture and osteopathy and how they can complement each other. Although he usually uses them independently he has found that often they can be combined within a treatment to increase the healing potential.

Fred specialises in using the most gentle techniques available in both therapies. In acupuncture he uses the thinnest of needles (not much thicker than hair), which are virtually pain free when inserted, apart from an occasional tingling or slight aching sensation. Similarly in osteopathy he prefers to use the gentle techniques of cranial and functional  osteopathy  which rarely involve the high velocity thrusts (or ‘cracking’) normally  associated with osteopathy or chiropractic. Far from being less potent because they are gentle, these are some of the most powerful and effective techniques in the osteopathic armoury.

After more than 25 years in practice Fred is still completely committed to the holistic and natural approach to health which emphasis the concept of unity both within and without every individual. He is also equally committed to the practice and philosophy of using acupuncture and osteopathy to stimulate the natural healing power/energy within all of us to encourage health and well being.
