Treatments

Treatments are carried out by a fully qualified and accredited therapist.

The main treatment aim is to get the body to focus on its own imbalances so it can repair itself through a series of protocols of
“searching – thinking – challenging – comparing – testing – asking – proving”

Then we can then evaluate the body’s chemical, psychological and psychological and physiology responses.

A list of all of our treatments

Acupuncture

ACUPUNCTURE is carried out by inserting small needles on specific areas of the body which promotes recovery, assist in pain relief or aids in helping with a wide range of other complaints.

CLINICAL acupuncture sessions can include fertility, menstrual issues, and many other treatment needs.  Time: 60 mins (£45)

BATTLEFIELD acupuncture is a pain relieving protocol where very small semi-permanent needles on 5 distinct ear points are inserted into the skin of the outer surface of the ear to reduce, and in some cases remove pain from the body.  The needles remain in place until they fall out within a couple of days.  Time 20 mins (£35)

MICROSYSTEMS acupuncture can be found in healthcare settings including hospitals and drug rehabilitation units. Evidence shows that stimulating these areas, usually with needles, may help to deal with symptoms such as anxiety, general stresses and addictions.  Time: 20 mins (£35)

 

Anmo Fu (Deep abdominal massage)

An ancient energetic abdominal massage based on traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories that our internal organs control and enhance our psychology and physiology.  The treatment helps to create space between organs; increases the flow of new oxygenated blood into the area and helps to move stagnation.

TCM teaches us about the correlation between organs and the emotions.  Spleen (Worry), Lungs (Grief), Heart (Joy), Liver (Anger), Kidneys (Fear and Fright).   Stress is also a big factor in affecting our abdominal organs and digestive system.

Anmo Fu sessions help to release and rebalance organs; to get the abdominal “engine” purring again.

What to expect after your treatment

The body should be given time to adapt to the changes made during your sessions which will allow optimal recovery.

You may feel some stiffness or soreness after a treatment which should subside within a day or two.  This is due to your body making small adaptions or, where forgotten muscles are starting to respond.   Often it can feel as if you have been to the gym for the first time in many years.

Please drink plenty of water before and after your sessions to ensure you are suitably hydrated.  This will also help your body naturally flush out any waste from the tissues.

You should avoid the following activites for up to 24 hours:

  • Carrying anything heavy;
  • Avoid strenuous exercise;
  • Overworking mentally or physically.
