Therapies We Offer

 

Auricular Acupuncture - Auricular acupuncture is one of the more widely used microsystems within eastern medicine. Microsystems use one aspect of the body - for example, the ears, hands or feet - to treat conditions that are present anywhere in the body. Auricular Acupuncure is a treatment uses small needles to stimulate the outer part of the ear. These are left in place for 10-30 minutes and trigger electrical impulses from the ear, via the brain to the specific area of the body that needs treating. It can be very helpful for calming, muscle tension, detoxification, aiding digestion and general pain relief.


Chiropractic - Manipulation is the chiropractor's most important technique. With their hands, the chiropractor moves a joint a little further than the patient would be able to do on their own. The purpose of this treatment is to normalise the functions of the joints and muscles and to ease, or remove, pain and improve mobility.


Indian Head Massage - The aim of Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. It is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis.
