TREATMENTS

We provide the following natural treatments. Our practitioners often recommend a combination of treatments for best results.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the body with fine disposable needles. This stimulation can influence the body’s functions and regulatory mechanisms through the nerves, hormones, muscles and connective tissues. This in turn can help reduce pain, promote relaxation and recovery, and improve health and wellbeing.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is slightly different to general Acupuncture as it targets motor points of the muscles to lift and tone the face, thereby creating a natural facelift.

We use cosmetic (facial) acupuncture to support collagen and elastin production in order to soften facial lines and wrinkles whilst also using acupuncture on other parts of the body to support your constitution.

Cosmetic acupuncture is likely to benefit the skin by:

  • Softening deep wrinkles and reducing fine lines

  • Increasing collagen and elastin production

  • Clearer skin and acne reduction

  • Reducing acne scarring and pitting

  • Improving blood circulation and evening skin tone

  • Lifting cheeks and sagging jowls

  • Reducing facial tension and stress

The initial treatment lasts for 90 minutes where a detailed health history is taken and you are given the space to ask questions. Along with acupuncture you will relax into a facial massage where gua sha and jade roller tools are used.

Follow up treatments are 75 minutes long, which also includes a gua sha and jade roller treatment to encourage lymphatic drainage and promote microcirculation to the face.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Herbal medicine is the prescription of natural plants and substances used to balance, supplement and nourish your body or to help your body eliminate and recover from infection, inflammation and pain.

We have a range of Herbal Medicines + Teas available for purchase in the clinic.

CUPPING & MASSAGE

Sometimes we use massage in conjunction with acupuncture to relieve areas of tension and to promote relaxation. Cupping is a traditional technique where cups are placed on the skin and a suction is created. This is used to draw out toxins, loosen tight muscles and stimulate blood circulation.

NUTRITION & LIFESTYLE

‘He who takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skill of his doctors’ – Chinese Proverb

Nutrition is vital for good health. Chinese Medicine focuses on what you eat and importantly on how and when you eat. The most nutritious food may be poorly absorbed if eaten late at night or in a stressful situation. Food is viewed for its content, including vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fats and also for its thermal and energetic effects on the body’s physiology. Certain foods have a warming effect and may be recommended to promote blood circulation while others have a cooling effect and reduce inflammation. Diet suggestions are therefore made with the individual’s constitution and needs in mind.

During our consultation we may discuss lifestyle factors that affect your health and wellbeing. This may include aspects of your life such as work, exercise, stress levels, relationships and living conditions. A small change to your lifestyle may have a significant benefit to your long-term health outcome.
