Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago and is widely practiced around the world. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture treatments are delivered based upon the theory of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang are inseparable opposed ideas existing in perfect harmony. When the balance of Yin and Yang is disturbed, a disharmony will occur and manifest itself as a pattern of disease. The purpose of acupuncture is to help the body heal itself by inserting thin needles into specific points on the body; thus harmonizing Yin and Yang.

TCM does not separate mind and body or seek to alleviate illness via a single mechanism like pharmaceutical drugs. In Chinese medicine illness in viewed in terms of the movement of qi, bodily substances and pathogenic factors. Acupuncture has an accumulative effect as treatment is gradual and unfolding, with each treatment peeling back and treating the layers underneath to reveal the core issues.

Holistic Massage

Massage - the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body - has been used as a healing therapy for many thousands of years. The ancient cultures of China, Japan, Egypt, Rome, Greece and Arabia all considered massage to be calming, soothing and relaxing, and also very important as a healing therapy.

Massage uses the therapist's hands to manipulate the body's soft tissue, especially the muscles. Holistic massage can be used to treat a wide range of conditions such as stress, insomnia, rheumatoid arthritis, muscle spasms and general aches and pains.

Massage relieves the symptoms of stiff, tired joints, speeds up digestion and encourages improved circulation, promotes relaxation and improved sleep.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is based on Swedish massage, a technique that uses the application of pressure to manipulate soft tissue. Swedish massage involves the use of gliding strokes, kneading movements, circular pressure of the hand and fingers, vibratory movements, brisk tapping and bending and stretching.

Sports massage incorporates all of these Swedish massage movements, together with additional intensive techniques that are specifically designed to prevent and treat sports injuries. The aim is to improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints, improve blood circulation, speed up the healing of damaged or stressed muscles, tissues and joints, and prevent future muscle and tendon injuries.

Sports massage is good for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. It reduces strain and discomfort caused by training or participating in sport, and it encourages the body to heal and repair any injuries sustained.
