Good acupuncture builds a connection between the body, emotions and mind: stimulating the bodies healing abilities. The aim of treatment is to reach the root cause of a problem. However to find the catalyst, a process of discussion, observation, treatment, perseverance and lifestyle changes may be necessary. For example this could involve.

doing particular physical exercises, a change of eating habits, taking specific supplements or looking at our relationships and how they effect us. Each of our health patterns are individual and unraveling the causes of a symptom and helping the body / mind to re-balance is a unique process.

"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go everything that isn't you- all the expectations,all the beliefs- and becoming who you really are" Rachel Naomi Remen

" Healing is a matter of time, but it is also a matter of opportunity " Hippocrates

Thus by nourishing and looking after ourselves we can reach our potential and live more fulfilling lives. This can deepen our relationships with our immediate family, friends and the wider community.

Acupuncture improves the body's ability to heal and restore physical balance. Based on over 2000 years of research and development, Acupuncture originates from China and is now increasingly popular for treating a wide range of health problems :such as chronic pain, headaches, fertility issues, chronic fatigue and reduced immunity.

Acupressure & Massage

Acupressure & Massage can be deeply relaxing: it is also especially beneficial for musco skeletal problems and sports injuries. Treatment activates movement along muscle groups and joints by using a variety of techniques that can vary from a very light surface touch to deep tissue massage. A sensitive approach always ensures the correct level of pressure is used, especially when patients are in extreme pain or are very sensitive. Acupressure Massage can be offered alongside acupuncture and be done through loose clothing.


Cupping is an extraordinary method that has been used for thousands of years. It is a suction technique that is designed to pull toxin build up and muscle spasm from the body's deeper tissue to the surface of the skin. It can be used alongside Acupressure and/or Acupuncture.
