Jenny Swan

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Practitioner in Horsham

I started my professional life as a Solicitor while teaching fitness on the side.

When I married and had my 3 children, I trained as a Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapist after building a bespoke building in our garden. Finding that I had a fascination with the human body, I developed a hunger to really help people. Thus I began my search. After dabbling in short training courses in Physio and Osteopathy, I finally found a Course where I could study Chinese Medicine on a part time basis over the years whilst working so I could keep my business and learn and grow on the job!

Chinese Medicine constantly amazes me because of the huge range of problems it can treat successfully! I also love that it treats the individual as a whole person and every treatment is unique to them. Every day is an adventure for me as I meet new people to help.

Tuina massage therapy is a powerful and dynamic bodywork system. It is the oldest of the Chinese Medicine practices with a history of approximately 3000 years. Tui Na massage uses the same diagnostic methods as acupuncture to enable individualised and focused treatment.

Chinese Acupuncture focuses on precise adjustments to the body's living systems. Illness arises from the disharmony of bodily processes. Acupuncture works to return the body to its natural pattern - health. mAcupuncture facilitates the body's intrinsic healing response, seeing no separation between body, mind and emotions. It is the perfect partner to the bodywork.

Chinese herbal medicine is a wonderful system of using the herbs of the earth to re-balance the bodies systems and bring us back into full health. It is a powerful tool of intervention for everything from a cold to auto-immune conditions. It can also be used as an effective adjunctive therapy alongside traditional Western treatments such as Chemotherapy, Radiation or other drugs such as Methotrexate.

My Studio now houses over 300 Chinese herbs with a full dispensary. Creams, gels and external treatments are made bespoke for every patient as well as internal herbs which are taken as a tea.

Some products have stood the test of time and sell out as soon as I can make them such as my Herbal Trauma Pain Gel, Scar Cream and others like my Busitis Cream and Arthritis spray.

My Specialisms

I specialise in being able to help people recover from debilitating conditions and through using different modalities enabling them to fully rehabilitate. My background has given me a grounding in helping people with serious musculo-skeletral conditions and today I can use bodywork, Acupucnture and herbs to help people get back on their feet and out of debilitating pain.

A new interest that is developing is auto-immune conditions such as the different types of Arthritis and also digestive conditions which I have found Chinese herbs provide a real and lasting answer.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I have a lovely Studio in my garden where I work from. It is light and airy and befits my work. I have created a fountain area outside so clients can listen to the music of water as they receive their therapy! They tell me it's very relaxing. Where necessary I use my Conservatory also so people can relax for longer with needles in and we don't have to rush their sessions.

My approach is to bring a warm, gentle and accepting approach to every client. I try to provide a non-judgemental place of safety where we can explore what the problem is and then treat it together.

I do expect my clients to take responsibility for their own bodies and take care to explain what I understand about what their problem is and how it has developed over time. I then give them "homework" between sessions so they can work on helping themselves to recover.

Where a condition is chronic, I would expect to see a patient once a week until we have established an acceptable position i.e. no pain. After that I may see them once a month for maintenance massage or to update their herbs. Where someone is in acute pain or has an inflamatory muscular or skin condition I may see them twice a week until it is resolved.

I bring all that I know to each session and offer a multi-disciplinary approach.

Testimonials

Craig C on 18/10/2016

"Why I gave Jenny 5 stars is because she has a great holistic overview to therapy and treatment. She understands sports massage, acupuncture, tuina (Chinese Physio) and has a great knowledge of nutrition. I first went to see her for a sports massage but soon got to understand I was looking at the wrong things and not the underlying causes of my injuries.

Her advice and treatment have allowed me to make some positive changes to how I exercise, eat and led to real improvements in my running and daily life. Well worth a visit! "

Darren Worger on 25/02/2018

"I have been treated by Jenny several times now and she is definately very skilled, knowledgeable and passionate about her treatments, also being a warm and friendly person which helps put you at ease straight away. Having had several problems the treatments have really helped with many issues I have, some of which I didn't realise could be treated by the therapies. I always come away from treatment feeling relaxed and well. I would definately recommend visiting Jenny. "

Jonathan on 08/01/2019

"Jenny has been absolutely brilliant for me and my (now healed) long term injury.

Having tried almost everything else (MRI, chiropractors, orthopaedic surgeons etc.) to fix my hip and being close to admitting the fact my hip would simply be a hindrance for the rest of my life, I was recommended Jenny by a friend.

Through several sessions of acupuncture and sports message therapy, my hip has all but completely recovered which I never ever thought would happen. I am now able to go a whole day without even thinking about the injury which has affected my daily activity over the last ten years.

Rather than being prescriptive, Jenny took the time and had the prodigious expertise to understand exactly what was wrong with my body.
I was fully comfortable throughout the whole experience (which for me was rather important considering the vulnerable feeling of exposing an injury and of course, those small needles!).

I couldn't recommend Jenny enough and if you are in West Sussex looking for an acupuncturist or sports therapist, you can stop looking. Give Jenny a call."
