Involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. The patient may experience a strong, dull sensation upon initial insertion, followed by feelings of relaxation. The needles are retained in the body for approximately 30 minutes. In this time, the patient can enjoy a deep restful state, where the body can regenerate and restore itself.

Point locations traverse channels known as meridians according to Chinese Medicine Theory. Acupuncture is part of the Chinese Medicine System derived from 2500 years of experience and observation in treating a multitude of human diseases. Acupuncture treats the body as an entire system of health as opposed to Dry Needling, which focuses more on local trigger point release.  Acupuncture can be used for any condition. I have particular results with any acute/chronic pain i.e. neck, back, elbow, knee, hip, jaw, shoulder. Internal conditions such as stress, insomnia, digestive and gynecological issues are also treatable with acupuncture.

Needle free acupuncture

For patients who are particularly sensitive to needle sensation, electro-acupuncture can be used as an alternative treatment. This involves gold plated electrodes that are attached to specific points on the body via a vacuum suction mechanism. Studies have shown stimulation using electrical impulses have the same healing effects as acupuncture.

Cranio-sacral release is a gentle-hands on approach that helps restore the free flow of cerebrospinal fluid and functionality of the Central Nervous System. The practitioner’s hands hold the cranium (head) and sacrum (pelvis) in certain positions that encourage a subtle re-organising of the structures, tissues and fluids. The proper balance of the central axis of the body intern feeds the health of the entire bio-system.  Craniosacral therapy is helpful in cases of physical trauma of the neck, jaw, spine or pelvis. The practice can also release emotional trauma’s from the past that have become lodged in stuck body patterns

Cupping

This Chinese Medicine technique involves the suction of glass cups (usually on the back, buttocks or legs) to clear toxins and remove stagnation of blood and lymph. A mark may be produced on the skin that is similar in appearance to a bruise. This is the result from the vaccum effect of the cups, which draws the blood to the surface of the skin. This mark is not a bruise as it does not hurt to touch and will disappear faster. Cupping provides great relief for chronic back pain and leg pain.

Moxibustion is an ancient Chinese Medicine Healing technique that involves the burning of mugwort leaf, either indirectly or directly on the body. Mugwort leaf has energetic medicinal properties and produces a tonifying healing effect.  This is especially good for gynecological issues, digestive problems, fatigue and turning breach babies.
