Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine incorporates different techniques to treat illness and restore health.
Acupuncture- the gentle insertion of fine needles into various areas of the body called acupuncture points.

This is useful in pain conditions, internal medicine issues and general balancing of all systems in the body.
Cupping- the use of glass fire or vacuum cups that are placed onto the body to help move Qi, blood and stagnation assisting with pain management, clearing heat and toxins.
Moxibustion- we use a herb to heat the acupuncture points or place directly on the skin for various effects such as warming, tonifying, restoring yang and alleviating pain in the body.
Gua Sha- a scraping technique using a Gua Sha tool that assists with clearing heat, and moving qi and stagnation. This technique is also used in cosmetic acupuncture sessions to stimulate blood flow and collagen production leaving skin soft and glowing.
