This is an eastern healing practice that has been around for thousands of years working with energy flow of the body accessing it through particular points in the body. Single use thin acupuncture needles are used to stimulate and access these points along meridians in the body. It works effectively in harmonising our subtle energy bodies also working with sacred geometry and the chakra systems. Our physical body is a manifestation of energy to denser material and therefore is a safe and effective treatment for a range of physical disorders as well. These sessions are often combined and customised to your needs with cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine and lifestyle advice.
Acupuncture & Massage
For those looking to receive the benefits of both therapies in one session
A remedial massage can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow, and holistically treats the whole body. It involves a range of techniques and styles such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and sports massage. It is a systematic assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue and align your body.
This is a gentle, rhythmic massage that manually stimulates the flow of lymphatic fluids. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. The technique itself is very light and very relaxing, comprising of gentle strokes and pumps on the skin with some deeper work over the lymph nodes, especially in the abdomen. Lymphatic massage can also aid in the reduction of swelling after injury or surgery. It is also thought to provide a major boost to your immune system.
Gua Sha Facial
Don’t have time for a full facial rejuvenation session, would like to have a top up between sessions or have needle anxiety? Then this is the treatment for you. It is an express treatment with all that facial rejuvenation sessions have to offer with the exception of needles.
This is a natural approach to reducing fine lines, wrinkles, improving your complexion and getting a natural facelift using acupuncture and gua sha. It is as much a treatment for the body as it is a treatment for the face as the external is a reflection of our inner landscape. Combined with a cleanse, tone and moisturiser using natural products, you will surely walk out with a happy glow.
This treatment combines acupuncture, gliding cups and lymphatic drainage on target areas. It is a vigorous and invigorating experience for those that can tolerate a little bit of pain.
