Traditional Chinese Acupuncture
Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of 'qi', your body's vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness. In certain instances, traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms. This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of wellbeing. You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your main health complaint improves.
Many people come to acupuncture for help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee. Some use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others choose acupuncture simply to enhance their feeling of wellbeing. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies and children. It can be used effectively alongside conventional medicine.
Acupuncture, acupressure & skincare facials available. NYR products used: 100% natural, no petrochemicals, parabens, synthetic fragrances or artificial ingredients.
Pregnancy massage is great for relieving muscle tension as well as aches and pains. Lymph drainage helps to clear swelling in the hands and feet and both anxiety and blood pressure can be reduced. Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health. Safe techniques for the whole body are used at different stages of pregnancy with the client lying on her side.
Reflexology works on the basis that there are areas in the hands and feet associated with various glands, organs and regions of the body. It is deeply relaxing and can prompt the body to heal itself. Reflexology is very helpful in alleviating stress-related ailments as well as promoting a sense of calm and well-being. A treatment uses pressure on specific areas of the feet to stimulate healing in the corresponding part of the body. This releases areas of tension and helps energy to flow more freely throughout your body.
Maternity Reflexology is aimed specifically at women during pre-conception, pregnancy, labour and the post-natal period.
