Acupuncture Acupuncture is used to help the body heal illness and balance the whole person for optimal wellness. Sterile, fine disposable needles are sited in particular parts of the body to redirect or increase qi or energy flow within the body, mind and spirit. There are pathways of energy throughout the body called channels or sometimes meridians, some near the surface and some deeper, which connect with each other and with the main internal organs. Wellness depends on a balance of energy or qi and the movement of that energy throughout the person. Many health complaints are caused by an interrupted flow of qi or reduced qi. Acupuncture is a way to reestablish balance, which itself promotes healing, and a bodily felt sense that we are well again, or beginning to get better. Acupuncture is one of the tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which views the body, mind, and spirit as an interrelated whole. Disorders of any one of these three may produce disorders in the others. In our society where the body can become divorced from the mind and the spirit, acupuncture can help to reestablish wholeness and wellness. In particular, mental and emotional stress and imbalances can lead to physical symptoms. By addressing problems at an early stage we can prevent more serious symptoms from arising. The good news is we have within us a huge capacity for change and healing. How acupuncture works Clinically, acupuncture increases oxygenation and circulation, regulates the endocrine and nervous systems, and alleviates pain by blocking pain receptors and stimulating the secretion of endorphins. Theres lots of studies to support that statement, but having said that theres a lot which remains a mystery at this stage about how acupuncture works. We know that it does work and work well for many conditions, and can also be a good support treatment for others.

Homeopathy For a rapid, gentle and holistic approach to wellness in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way, homeopathy is a drug-free approach to good health. It is safe for all ages including babies, children pregnant women and the elderly. The remedies are either little pilules or drops hence easy to take.

  • Injuries
  • Sore throats

Homeopathy can also be used constitutionally to strengthen the body’s immune system and improving physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. This constitutional strengthening is particularly important for children as their growth is fast and they need support to fight again reoccurring illnesses. What Happens in a Consultation Consultations are by appointment and are completely confidential.

The remedy is given either at the end of the consultation or posted within a few days. Your very first consultation may take up to one and a half hours. Follow up consultation takes 30-45 minutes and takes place 2 to 4 weeks later to evaluate the progress of the condition and to make any changes to the remedy if required.
