ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the insertion of ultra-fine sterile needles into specific points on the body (usually on the arms and legs). The aim of acupuncture is to restore balance by regulating the Qi (energy) in the body.

Acupuncture may help with managing symptoms, such as:

  • Pain

  • Muscular tension

  • Bloating

  • Poor sleep

  • Low mood, stress, fatigue

  • Hot flushes, night sweating

 

If you don’t like the idea of needles, we also provide acupressure and non-needle stimulation. These treatments apply pressure to acupuncture points but do not use needles.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Remedial massage is a complementary therapy which treats muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. It is useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones. The pressure applied can be either strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem.

Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.

What does a remedial massage involve?

Before the massage begins, your therapist will talk to you about your health and lifestyle. They will ask you to lie on a table or couch and will cover you with towels to protect your privacy and to keep you warm. They will probably use creams or oils to help them massage your skin smoothly.

EAR ACUPRESSURE

Ear acupressure (using ear seeds) is a technique that stimulates certain points on the ear to help treat a range of health conditions. In Chinese medicine theory, ear acupressure is a technique similar in principle to acupuncture. The ear is considered to be a microsystem that maps other areas of the body, similar to reflexology and iridology. Ear seeds are made of stainless steel, gold or silver. The seeds are held in place by a small plaster (like a Band-aid) and stay on the ear for about 2–3 days. They can be stimulated up to 10 times a day for about 30 seconds each time.

People often visit a chiropractor for help with back and neck pain, headache, injuries and joint stiffness. Chiropractors are trained to recognise when you will and will not benefit from their care and to refer you to other health practitioners when necessary. You do not need a referral to see a chiropractor.
