ACUPUNCTURE-REMEDIAL MASSAGE-HERBAL MEDICINE-CUPPUNG-GUA SHA
The practice of acupuncture in China can be tracked back to more than 2000 year ago. Acupuncture uses a holistic approach to understand normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment. Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points along the body's meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine prescriptions are individualised and cater for all health conditions. A typical formula or prescription is made up of 8 or more herbs that are specifically matched to treat the patient’s individual health problems. Formulas are prescribed in such a way to eliminate any toxicity that many occur and to maximise treatment outcomes for patients. Traditionally prescriptions are given to patients as raw herbs; this service is available to you if you would like to experience the “traditional” way of taking herbs, however if you are a busy person or dislike the taste of herbs, you may choose to have your prescription in granular form.
Cupping helps to promote the circulation and eliminate toxins from the body. Cupping is used when energy is blocked at certain points or when it needs to draw out to the surface from deeper within. The suction of the cup would facilitate dispersing and invigorating energy to promote its regulation. Cupping is commonly used in conjunction with an acupuncture treatment, although may be used alone for those with an aversion to needles. Air is drawn out of the cups to create a vacuum when placed on the skin. Cups can be placed over dedicated acupuncture points, and/or on painful areas or knots.
