Welcome to The Gentle Art of Nourishing Life
Ele gained her Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Hawai’i, where she also trained in the six Taoist arts under the 64th generation Heavenly Taoist Master, Chang Yi Hsiang (Lily Siou).
Ele's philosophy is to nourish life.
"When we support and strengthen ourselves, the quality of what we then give to others is much richer, and more sustainable.
When we empower ourselves, we expand our potential and become the beautiful, unique, and powerful individuals that we all truly are.”
Treatments, classes and workshops are now offered by Ele as a way of becoming more conscious of our bodies, of delving to a deeper understanding of the self, and of nourishing life.
TOYOHARI~ JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE
Have you ever wanted to try acupuncture, but were worried about the needles?
You are invited to try TOYOHARI, Japanese style painless acupuncture.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over five thousand years, and the overall aim is to restore the body's own natural equilibrium.
Toyohari (“Toy-oh-ha-ree”) is a Japanese style of acupuncture, which treats a variety of health conditions.
The aim of this medicine is to balance the flow of Qi (energy) in the 12 meridians (energy pathways), hence restoring and strengthening an individual’s constitution and vitality, as well as alleviating any symptomatic problems. Building your constitution is beneficial in many ways; it not only boosts your immune system, and acts as a preventative medicine, but it increases your resiliency to the every day stresses on the body and mind.
Toyohari is a powerful yet gentle therapeutic system for both preventing disease and maintaining health.
"The sage does not cure the sick only when they are sick, but prevents the illness from arising. Surely it is too late to administer drugs after the illness has declared itself. Is it not like beginning to dig a well when one feels thirsty?" The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine
SHONISHIN~ PAEDIATRIC HEALTH
Silver tools are used to stimulate the meridians and acupuncture points in Shonishin (“Sho-nee-shin”).
These tools are stroked, rubbed, or tapped against the child’s skin, to build up their natural vitality, strengthen their developing organ systems, and to create balance within.
Children respond well to this treatment and even enjoy it!
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."Frederick Douglass

This indulgent treatment increases local circulation to your face and stimulates your collagen production, which results in minimising your wrinkles and lines, lifting your sagging skin, brightening your eyes and increasing your blood and lymph circulation.
Ultimately it brings a healthy and radiant vitality back to your face and leaves your skin younger looking.
Quickly becoming a popular and effective form of facial rejuvenation, this treatment involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific areas on your face to improve energy flow, and includes a stimulating facial massage.
