Acupuncture

Initial: 1 hour $80

Follow-up: 40 min  $50

Its origins dating back thousands of years, it is one of the oldest health care systems in the world. Acupuncture  involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single use needles into acupuncture points along specific energy pathways (meridians or channels) in the body to free up energy blockages and encourage the smooth flow of Qi throughout the body. These points can be stimulated using electro-acupuncture or acupressure depending on the needs and boundaries of the client.

 

 Some benefits of acupuncture:

  • Focuses on drug-free pain relief

  • Can be effective in the treatment of acute and chronic ailments 

  • Takes a holistic approach by addressing the underlying cause of the condition, as well as the symptoms. 

  • Assists in the prevention against disease and the maintenance of general well-being.

After consultation, a customised acupuncture prescription is formulated to treat the condition. Acupuncture uses the insertion of fine, sterile, on-time use needles on specific points to access and harmonise the Qi of the channels. Different modalities such as moxibustion, cupping and massage will be incorporated in to treatments as needed. Acupuncture is a wonderful treatment for balancing out your body systems and achieving optimal health.

Remedial Massage

30 min $50

45 min $65

1 hour $80

1.5 hour $110

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 length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position. This increases the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury. It also encourage overall feeling of relaxation and wellness.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

1 hour $80

1.5 hour $110

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 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 prevention of swelling after injury or surgery. It is also thought to provide a major boost to your immune system.

Chakra Balancing

1 hour $80

Chakras are energy centers in the body. In Sanskrit the word Chakra means wheel. This is because the qi moving with in the body and subtle energy bodies are spinning and rotating much like galaxies do. We mainly work with 7 chakras that starts at the base of the spine and moves all the way up to the top pf the head. The effect of well balanced chakras often translates into a feeling of well-being, relaxation, centeredness, increased vitality and embodiment of oneself. Chakra balancing is the process of restoring a harmonious flow of energy across the chakra system. In a treatment, esoteric acupuncture patterns based on sacred geometry are used to create vortexes for the specific chakras in order to bring harmony.

 

Transformational acupuncture works with the knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine in combination with concepts of the chakra system, sacred geometry and the power of your intuition. Borrowing a lot of the traditional acupuncture points, transformational acupuncture uses these in certain patterns and sequences to activate energy vortexes. This is a practical system of acupuncture developed by Dr. Alexander Joannou from the original works of Dr. Mikio Sankey known as Esoteric Acupuncture which was more spiritually based. Transformational acupuncture works on the level of Mind, Body and Spirit aiding a variety of conditions including mental health and chronic pain.

Other Modalities

Chinese Herbal Medicine 

Chinese herbal medicine takes a holistic approach to disease and prophylactic care and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as the treatment of it. Most diseases or illnesses present with a core set of recognisable signs and symptoms, but the actual presentation of a particular disease or illness may vary from person to person. Herbal medicine is specially formulated for individuals to treat their presenting symptoms as well as the underlying issue giving rise to the condition. The formula is also adjusted and modified during the recovery period until the desired health outcome is achieved. At munayqi wellness, no formulas containing animal products are used for treatment.

Cupping

Is a part of Traditional Chinese medicine that involves the placement of cups on the skin surface to create suction. This draws in blood to the surface helping to eliminate toxins from the body, aid with reducing inflammation and promote blood circulation. 

 

Moxibustion

A form of heat therapy in which dried plant material, usually Mugwort is burned near the surface of the skin to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians of the body. It warms and invigorates the flow of qi in the meridians to generate therapeutic effects

 

Gua Sha 

This treatment involves scraping of the skin with a smooth edged massage tool to improve circulation and is usually used in conditions of muscular pain and tension. By promoting circulation and reducing inflammation, it promotes healing either in the soft tissue or the meridians. 

 

Reiki           

It is a form of energy healing originating in Japan meaning universal energy. It involves a technique called hands on healing that is a non-invasive and non-manipulative gentle touch. This is used to change and balance the energy fields in and around the body to help on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.
