Acupuncture works to help maintain your body’s equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’, your body’s vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness. In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of well being. You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your main health complaint improves.
Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose acupuncture simply to enhance their feeling of well being. Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.
- Acupuncture Facial
Facial Acupuncture is a safe, natural alternative to cosmetic surgery and many women are increasingly choosing it as a way of facial enhancement.
Facial Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production, helping to smooth out wrinkles and firm the skin. The treatment stimulates local circulation of blood and lymph to the face, improves muscle tone, encourages tightening of the pores and brightens the eyes. It greatly reduces stress evident in the face, bringing out the beauty within. This is a holistic treatment which aims to restore balance. Many notice other health benefits such as reduction in stress levels and more energy.
- Acupressure Facial
This amazing treatment incorporates a unique blend of highly effective massage techniques including Acupressure, drawn from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Indian Face Massage and Lymphatic Drainage, helping to rid the body of toxins. This facial massage involves flowing techniques which act as a natural facelift as an alternative to surgery, helping you feel and look younger. At the pace we live our lives, we all have tension that builds up in our scalp, face, neck and shoulder muscles and many of us would love to release these tension hotspots, reduce wrinkles and take much needed time out for ourselves.
- Ear Candling
Thermo Auricular Therapy (TATh) is the therapeutic use of Hopi Ear Candles. A hollow tube is placed in the ear and lit to create a moderate suction designed to stimulate the ear, nose and throat. Treatments can relieve the build-up of wax, ease sinuses and treat a variety of ear, nose and throat problems as well as colds, headaches and stress.
