In light of the current pandemic, we want to offer online consultations so we can support you from afar. Our consult is via video and so we can follow our usual diagnostic approach, then offer herbal formuals, moxa, acupressure and advice for you to apply at home.
A popular method of treatment, acupuncture is designed to stimulate the bodies innate healing systems. The fine, single use needles are minimally invasive and often once they are in place, patients report feeling relaxed and at ease.
We find acupuncture and massage very effective when used alongside each other. We have both a male and a female massage therapist at the clinic. See the 'about us' section for more details about us
Cupping has been used across a variety of cultures throughout time. Essentially the cups are placed on the skin and a vacuum is created either with fire or a pump system and this pulls on the underlying tissues, creating micro circulation.
Moxibustion, or 'moxa' is a deceptively simple traditional technique that has remained popular as a very localized heat treatment. Often used over acupuncture needles or points or old injury sites.
Chinese herbal medicine has always played a large role in the treatment of chronic health conditions. The elegant formula's called 'classical formula's' have stood the test of time for their efficacy and safety. We use a 'Made in NZ' company that uses top quality ingredients.
