Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapies
According to Traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. This energy is known as Qi. When ‘Qi’ is disturbed by any number of emotional or physical factors this unbalances our bodies and illness may result.

Acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing; physical, mental and emotional. The acupuncturist inserts ultra-fine needles at certain points along these channels of energy helping to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore balance. Treatment is aimed at the root of the cause and not just treating symptoms which can ultimately lead to a more permanent solution to your problem.
Based on the principal of acupuncture but without the needles. Using either glass cups and traditional fire cupping or manual plastic suction cups. Fire cupping, when heat is used to remove the oxygen from the cup and when placed on the skin/accupoint this creates a suction effect enabling energy flow, removal of toxins and promoting blood and lymph flow and natural healing. Can also be used to help reduce appearance of cellulite.
