About Tricia Underwood - The Natural Health Clinic
I have the knowledge and experience required for the safe effective assessment maintenance and improvement of Health, Wellbeing and Beauty. Helping to ease pain, relieve tension/muscle fatigue, stress management, improve suppleness, mobility and uplifting emotions.
Beauty Therapies (Croydon Clinic only) such as facials, waxing, eyelash tinting, face toning and hydro detox. Manicure and pedicure available at both clinics.
I have always wanted to be in the caring profession, Originally I became a St. John Ambulance cadet and after 30 years retired as a Divisional Superintendent. Due to a late start in education Nursing was not an option, however I have had a varied career developing a wide knowledge of business skills and educated myself in the workplace rather than at school.
Covering Office Skills, Sales, customer communications, health care and empathy to those in need. I started training for the basic Anatomy & Physiology with Body Massage in 1996.
Before opening my own home based clinic and resigning from my day job in 1997 I became a member of Healing Hands Network (HHN) PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE
and went on a tour of duty in Sarajevo treating the war torn victims of their recently ended war. Helping with the War wounded and Concentration Camp Organisations through Healing Hands Network. I am still a member and the HHN has now the privilege to work with the Heroes and Combat Stress in the UK.
My training, work experience and any achievement
In 1988 I yawned and put my back out whilst on holiday, we had been sitting with other tourists and one owned up to being a Therapist from New York USA. His administration speeded up my recovering in comparison to the vitamins prescribed to boost my immune system supplied by the local Dubrovnik Hospital. Had I lived in New York I would have gone to work with him and learn, however South London is a long commute. I never forgot this episode in my life and started my ambition to be in the Health care 9 years later.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work
I have chosen my various qualifications to cover the aspects which I believe will assist in relaxation, pain reduction, the improvement of suppleness and mobility, and the maintenance of the bodies Systems in good health. There are hundreds of other excellent therapies to choose from that I haven’t trained in.
I believe that self help is a tremendous asset to keeping good health and encourage my clients to a better quality of health through self help. Using the self help and Therapies to maintain good health rather than having to repair, replace, or make good bad health.
I like to talk to clients on the phone to discuss initial reasons for their seeking my help and get a guide as to my ability to be of help and the best approach. If I am not qualified to help in any instance then I am happy to refer on to a suitable alternative. The first appointment requires some degree of consultation followed by treatment, if necessary that will be an extra 1/2 hour, this requirement will be discussed at the time of making the appointment.
