Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is an ancient practice of healing dating back over 2500 years.  In a healthy state, an abundant supply of Qi (vital energy) runs through our body.

Acupuncture stimulates very specific points of the body in order to release energy blockages and to encourage the healthy flow of Qi.

By stimulating these points, acupuncture has the ability to modify the biochemical and physiological conditions of your body, in order to achieve a balance.

Many benefits can result from regular acupuncture treatments.

 

Acupuncture:

  • Promotes blood flow

  • Stimulates the body’s healing mechanism

  • Relaeases the body’s natural pain killers

  • Reduces the intensity and perception of chronic pain

  • Relaxes sore muscles

  • Reduces stress

 

What to expect in your first treatment session:

The initial session usually involves an assessment of your overall general health, a medical history and a physical examination followed by acupuncture.

 

Before your first acupuncture session:

  • Please bear in mind to wear a comfortable clothing.

  • Do not go to your treatment on an empty stomach or straight after a heavy meal.

 

The number of sesions depends entirely on the individual patient and their condition.

Cupping

 

Cupping is a form of traditional therapy that involves cups being placed on the skin to create suction.  The negative pressure created by the suction, causes muscles to loosen and promote blood flow.

Cupping is often used for neck pains, stiff muscles, fatigue, stress, cellulite and to reduce facial skin wrinkling.  

 

This treatment is also one of the best forms of deep tissue therapy that promotes blood flow in arteries and veins while also extracting toxins from the body.

Detoxification

 

Detoxification is based on the principle of Chinese Medicine.  This therapy  is the most gentle yet effective way of cleansing your body.

 

Detoxification involves regulating and tonifying the functions of our body’s internal organs ( mainly lungs, liver and kidneys).  This procedure  helps the body to get rid of waste and toxins through the processes of perspiration, urination and elimination.  

 

Detoxification can also help reduce cravings for unhealthy foods or smoking which are known to be a couple of the leading causes for toxin accumulation.
