Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is a complete system of ancient healing drawing on 5000 years of history. It looks at the relationship between our environment (macrocosm) and our body,mind,spirit (microcosm) and the influence on our health. Chinese Medicine addresses the root cause of illness, tailoring the treatment to what is happening within you, providing a strong emphasis on dietary & lifestyle support.
Chinese Medicine incorporates Herbal medicine, Massage, Dietary & Lifestyle advice, Cupping, Gua sha, Moxibustion and Acupuncture. All aspects of Chinese Medicine focus on restoring balance to the body through the principles of yin, yang and qi. “Qi” is the vital energy force that allows us to think, feel, work, breathe and move. If the flow of Qi, or yin and yang become unbalanced, either through physical, emotional, mental or environmental factors, illness can occur.
Chinese Medicine effectively treats the body, mind, spirit as a whole and is suitable in reducing pain & inflammation, enhancing recovery, supporting proper sleep function, promoting energy levels, balancing emotions & the nervous system; reducing anxiety, depression & stress levels, regulating digestive health, strengthening immunity, improving skin health, balancing gynecological & hormone functions, supporting men’s & women’s health, assisting fertility & IVF, pregnancy, birth preparation, post birth, miscarriage prevention and promoting good health. All treatments are tailored specifically to your needs.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a component of Chinese Medicine which involves fine needles being inserted on specific acupoints of the body’s meridian pathways. These pathways are likened to river systems which depend on free flowing circulation in order to distribute energy effectively within the body. When these pathways or river systems become blocked- pain, blockage and disharmony can ensue.
Acupuncture enables these pathways to be restored which rectify the balance within the entire body’s system. Acupuncture promotes emotional wellbeing; reducing anxiety, depression & stress levels, balances the nervous system, reduces pain & inflammation, enhances recovery, supports proper sleep function, improves energy levels, regulates digestive health, strengthens immunity, improving skin health, balances gynecological & hormone function, supports men’s & women’s health, assists fertility & IVF, pregnancy; birth preparation; labour induction, post birth, miscarriage prevention and promoting good health. All treatments are tailored to your needs and can be combined with Shiatsu, Cupping, Gua sha, Moxibustion, Laser Acupuncture, Esoteric Acupuncture, Energetic Medicine & Holistic Counseling.

Laser Acupuncture

It can be used in conjunction with traditional acupuncture or as an alternative to acupuncture needles.

Esoteric Acupuncture

Esoteric Acupuncture is a profound healing system for the Soul.  It was created by Mikeo Sankey and draws on a fusion of spiritual esoteric teachings from Chinese Medicine & Five Element Theory, Kundalini Yoga & the Nadi system, the Chakra system, Sacred Geometry, Quantum Physics & Kabbalah Tree of Life.  Esoteric Acupuncture involves needling acupuncture points in a sequential pattern, which open a gateway within our bodies and  levels of consciousness for healing to occur. This gateway aligns our heart to the divine wisdom we hold within our entire being. This stored wisdom provides a spiritual prescription to raise our body’s energetic vibration, creating healing, insight and clarity for the Soul, assisting one to find their unique purpose in life. Esoteric Acupuncture can be combined with Traditional Acupuncture, Laser Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Holistic Counseling & Energetic Medicine.

Holistic Counseling

Holistic Counseling embraces all aspects of our self; emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. It draws on a psychospiritual perspective, inviting us to deepen our understanding of who we are beyond our story or illness. In a supportive and nurturing environment, through self exploration and reflection, we gather resources to access our body’s inner wisdom on our journey to wholeness. Through our insights we can gain realisation to the vital role we each have in creating our own wellbeing. Our story (pain,experience,illness) then becomes a pivotal point for our transformation and healing, offering to us the Gifts learned through our experience of ourselves. Holistic Counseling can be combined with Acupuncture, Esoteric Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Energetic Medicine & Shiatsu.

Energetic Medicine

Energetic Medicine is a gentle and profound approach to healing. It incorporates the use of Reiki “universal life force energy”, Flower essences, Selenite Swords and  Advanced Energy Healing.  Reiki is a Japanese healing method that involves placing the hands on or above the body to facilitate healing, clear blockages and promote deep relaxation. Advanced Energy Healing involves holding specific acupuncture points in a sequential pattern which enable our deep levels of consciousness to access our body’s wisdom, creating healing, insight and clarity. Flower essences, are an energetic signature blend of Australian bush flowers which enhance self awareness, strengthen courage,deepen intuition and enhance emotional & spiritual growth. Selenite Swords of Light are a transformational high frequency crystal which can magnify intention, bring in Light and raise our energetic vibration. They are used to clear and balance chakras, meridians, the physical & energetic body and enhance our intuition. All treatments are created to your individual needs and can be combined with  Acupuncture, Esoteric Acupuncture, Shiatsu or Holistic Counseling.

Shiatsu

Shiatsu literally translates to “finger pressure” and  is an ancient Japanese body massage. With the use of  hands, thumbs, feet & elbow pressure & a variety of stretches-a sense of wellbeing is achieved. The shiatsu treatment is a deeply relaxing and holistic way to connect our sense of mind, body and spirit awareness. Shiatsu is suitable in reducing pain & injuries, enhancing recovery, promoting emotional wellbeing & stress management, supporting all stages of pregnancy, creating relaxation and inner harmony, facilitating healing and self care.
