Acupuncture

We apply a clinically based Japanese approach that comes directly from traditional and classical acupuncture texts. The Japanese style of needling involves very fine, thin and flexible needles compared to those used in Chinese Acupuncture. Japanese Acupuncture is often described as being painless as it is gentler and less invasive.

 

Our practitioners combine classical texts on traditional Chinese medicine with current western concepts and modern medical knowledge, to provide a greater understand and holistic approach for every client. Our aim is simply to improve health and increase your happiness and overall wellbeing.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

SERVICES
ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use needles into specific acupuncture points to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of energy, or Qi, through the body.  Acupuncture dates back over 2,000 years.

CUPPING

Cupping is generally thought of as just a TCM technique. However it's been seen in  Egyptian hieroglyphics and medical texts written in 1550 B.C. Today it is still used in both sports and non sports medicine practices for myofascial release.    

TUI NA

Tui Na is a form of Chinese massage using the theory of TCM. Sometimes called Acupuncture without needles. Using both acupuncture points and tender (Ashi) points, it aims to restore movement, harmony and flow of Qi in the body 

MOXA & CHINESE HERBS

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" is burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.
