Treatments



The acupuncture method Heather practices is not painful. Your comfort is a priority and treatments will focus on ensuring that you get the maximum possible benefit from each session.


Focus on the Cause

Oriental Medicine works by looking for the underlying cause or imbalance of a symptom or condition. This approach leads to a longer lasting resolution of symptoms.

Individual Treatments

The make-up of these underlying patterns are specific to each individual. Treatment is tailored to each person.

Methods

A variety of treatments can be used to maximise healing.

Acupuncture

The insertion of very fine needles into points on the body. Stimulating and calming the function of the organs, muscles and other systems of the body.

Touch Needling

A specific Japanese technique used for children and needle-sensitive adults. Needles don’t penetrate the skin.

Moxibusion

A herbal treatment used to warm the body, increase immunity, replenish reserves and activate weak and tired systems.

Cupping

Glass suction cups move and oxygenate the blood, reducing pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints.

Electro-Acupuncture

A fine electric current attached to acupuncture needles can stimulate the points and reduce healing time.

Dietary Therapy

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to diet. Specific individualised dietary advice from a Chinese Medicine perspective.
