how does acupuncture work

“Acupuncture treats the patient not the symptoms “

This means focusing on the root causes. The common aim of all traditional methods is to restore a person’s health, balance and harmony on all levels, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – by stimulating the body’s own self-healing powers. Chinese Medicine treats anything that you would go to you GP for. This exceptional medicine has been studied and evolved over approximately 4000 years and is still very much alive.

Shiatsu Massage Therapy

I have completed a 3 year diploma course in this. Shiatsu is a hands on therapy where the patient lies on a couch fully clothed. Touch is the most instinctive form of healing. Like Acupuncture “energy” is balanced and the patient feels deeply relaxed.

Bowen Technique

is a very gentle form of natural healing. In order to appreciate its subtlety and depth, this therapy really needs to be experienced. The treatment involves light moves applied to very specific points on the body. People often wonder how such gentle moves can have such a powerful effect.

Chinese Medical Tuina

This a form of Acupressure to regulate the flow of qi in your body. Frozen shoulders, headache, neck and back pain may potentially be helped by this system.
