Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practised in eastern countries for 2,500 years. It’s a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body’s motivating energy force or Qi (pronounced chi) moves through a network of channels, or meridians, that run beneath the skin. According to Acupuncture theory, illness arises from blockages in the energy flow. Therapists insert fine, sterile needles at various points on the meridians to rebalance the body’s energy.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses essential oils extracted from flowers and plants with an aim to balance the emotions and improve general health and wellbeing. Your therapist will carefully choose a blend of essential oils to address your symptoms or mood. These are added to a carrier oils and applied to your skin through massage. There is evidence that Aromatherapy can alleviate symptoms associated with stress and relieve tension.

Aromatherapy (Clinical) with Oriental Diagnosis

This clinical aromatherapy uses an Oriental medicine principle to diagnose your health pattern and select essential oils to focus towards addressing the root cause of your concern, rather than for just general symptoms.

Incorporated with massage, to bring Qi (vital energy) into alignment and balance it helps to restore both your physical and mental balance.

Naturopathy

In naturopathy, health is viewed as a dynamic state of equilibrium between the structural, biochemical and emotional aspects of a person.  This is known as the Triad of Health.  Naturopathic principles acknowledge that the human body has an innate ability to resist disease and it’s own mechanisms of recovery and self-regulation.  A person’s vitality is considered to be of overall importance in the body’s self-healing capability and a treatment plan will be devised accordingly.

In practice, naturopaths will make use of various modalities that are designed to stimulate the activation of the body’s own homeostatic mechanisms.  Treatment plans are holistic as they will include all aspects of the triad of health.  Techniques might include structural adjustments using various bodywork modalities, such as Neuromuscular Technique.

Biochemical adjustments could include giving naturopathic dietary and nutritional advice, cleansing and detoxing regimens or the prescribing of herbal teas or tissue salts.  Help on a mental and emotional level might include using Bach Flower remedies, giving lifestyle advice or prescribing herbal teas such as chamomile tea to aid relaxation.  Naturopathic hydrotherapy is often used as a theraputic tool as it helps with all aspects of the triad of health and boosts the body’s vitality

ScarWork employs the lightest of touch to integrate different qualities of scar tissue into the fascial web. Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement, which are permanent. Scar tissue quality changes quickly and easily and lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots and strings in the tissue rapidly smooth out into a three dimensional fascial web. The restrictions and adhesions of a scar resolve and the impaired nerves can regain sensation, internal organ functions can normalize and the range of movement can often improve.

Thai Yoga massage is a traditional and ancient form of massage. It is a dynamic and flowing treatment that can be energising or relaxing. It will be adjusted to suit you and your needs, so a full consultation is taken at your first session and follow up ones at subsequent sessions. This is a great treatment if you are feeling stiff or inflexible and also great if you are flexible!

The use of direct thumb pressure on the lines and stretching of these areas, is understood to release tension, inflammation and congestion in the body therefore improving well being and the flow of prana and dispelling weakness illness and disease. This is not a diagnostic treatment but works therapeutically to help release imbalance in the body, mind and spirit.
