ACCUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the use of ultrafine needles being placed into the skin at specific points called meridians, that regulate the flow of “Qi”.

Acupuncture is used to balance Qi and restore the body’s natural state of equilibrium.

Facial acupuncture can help promote collagen synthesis by way of a chemical reaction in the cells, which helps to address fine lines and wrinkles. It also targets facial muscles and encourages blood flow, which can improve the distribution of nutrients and oxygen to the skin, to create a fuller, plumper appearance due increased levels of collagen and elastin. Facial acupuncture opens the meridian channels so that the skin can receive more oxygen and nutrients through improved circulation for a smoother and more vibrant complexion.

Electro – acupuncture (45 mins)

Electro-acupuncture is applied in the same way as conventional acupuncture, with the addition of a mild electrical current which passes through the acupuncture needles.

After acupuncture there may be slight bruising to the skin at the sites where the acupuncture needles were inserted. This is normal, the bruising is minimal and will fade after a few days.

A small number of people may feel tiredness after the treatment however this too will soon pass

SIGNATURE MASSAGE

CUPPING & SCRAPING

Cupping therapy involves glass cups being placed onto the back along both sides of the spine, where the lymphatic glands are located. It can also be applied to other areas of the body. The air is removed from inside the cups to create a vacuum which draws the skin up into the cups.The vacuum creates a strange pulling sensation with only a small number of people feeling some discomfort. Cupping draws out the toxins in the blood, causing a temporary reddening, darkening, bruising or blistering of the skin. Scraping therapy involves the scraping of the skin with a blunt tool to facilitate healing, increase blood flow and remove built-up toxins in the organs and tissue, this procedure will cause reddening, darkening, bruising of the skin.Cupping and Scraping therapy are used in the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal pain, digestive problems, asthma, detox, cold and flu.

EAR CANDLING

A treatment that offers relief from ear discomfort caused by the build-up of wax and other conditions. Ear candles are beeswax or paraffin wax coated cloths which are shaped into a cone or cylinder.

The ear candles are carefully inserted into the ear, and when lit, create a small vacuum and a mild heat which loosens ear wax to help with ear problems
