Here at Albany Street, we know how hard it is to maintain optimal health in a busy life because we are all in the same boat. We will work with you to gain and maintain a healthy weight, ease a sore back, relax those tight shoulders, release painful joints and clear your skin as well as help you along your fertility and pregnancy journey if that's what you need most.
Call us to book an appointment on 0131 629 1529. At busy times your call may be diverted to an answering machine - please don't be put off and do leave a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Easter is on it's way and Spring shouldn't be far behind. Be sure to still wrap up warmly - it's not time to pack away the scarves and hats yet. Chinese Medicine always advocates being protected from cold winds so stay warm and cosy for (at least!) another month. If you're popping in to the clinic, we have some great cinnamon tea on the go and the radiators cranked up so you can relax and enjoy being with us. Anyone who suffers from Hayfever might want to start looking at booking in for some preventative acupuncture from now and people thinking early about holidays and losing weight could come and see our nutritionist for some advice and guidance.
We're so proud of our beautiful clinic so thought I'd share a photo of our lovely daffodils which have a nice sheltered spot beside the front door ..

Menu of the Month :
I know I'm a bit late with the pancake thing but this looks like a really interesting recipe from good old Hemsley and Hemsley.
Many people are finding they have either full blown allergies or just a mild intolerance to wheat. The latest science on this is that it may be caused by the fertilizers and pesticides used on the crop than the wheat itself. Chestnut flour looks like it might be good alternative and you can get it from Real Foods here in Edinburgh.
We're all about POSITIVE EATING here at the Albany Street Clinic. Eating well is much more about adding in the good stuff than taking out the bad stuff (with the exception of sugar). There is so much that can be done to improve your nutritional intake and the results are a more robust immune system, more energy, weight loss, better skin & hair, balanced hormones (that goes for men and women) and balanced blood sugar levels.
Our nutritionist Jane Jamieson will be giving a talk on the importance of good nutrition and supplements for fertility at the Infertility Network Information Day in Glasgow this Saturday, 7th March.
