Acupuncturist | Shiatsu therapist |Body worker | Student of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Over the past 16 years I have entwined all my skills as an acupuncturist with my passion for massage. I have continued over the years to expand my knowledge of body work, energy work and acupuncture to give my clients the best care I know how! I am passionate about educating and facilitating people to see that their bodies have an intelligence that they can tap into to help them heal or even just maintain good health!
Acupuncture is the use of fine needles inserted into specific points found all over the body. After a thorough diagnosis, specific points are chosen to not only treat the symptom but to also treat and get to the cause of the condition, the pain or the emotion being experienced.
The needles are inserted very superficially in energy pathways known as meridians, where either the energy is stagnating or deficient. The aim is to create balance in these energy pathways, which then in turn helps the body to work at optimal health and to help you feel emotionally clearer and calmer.
Acupuncture treatments may also include the use of cupping and moxibustion.
SHIATSU & PREGNANCY MASSAGE
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese massage therapy, where techniques such as acupressure, massage and stretching is applied to the whole body.
This style of treatment works on the meridians (energy pathways) that are found all over the body and while focusing on balancing out the energy of the whole body, will also treat the symptoms as well.
Shiatsu is traditionally conducted on a futon and patients can remain clothed ensuring clothes are loose and comfortable.
Patients will experience a treatment that can vary between gentle, medium and deep pressure but will experience sensations of great release at the same time. It is also a beautiful style of treatment for pregnancy massage.
DEEP TISSUE/ACUPRESSURE MASSAGE
Acupressure is another form of massage similar to the western style of trigger point therapy, except the points used are Acupuncture points.
The difference between using acupuncture points as opposed to trigger points is that the patient will experience a much different sensation and the points can also be used instead of needles to treat certain conditions.
The pressure on acupuncture points is aimed at releasing the stagnate energy sitting in the meridians or muscles often experienced by people as knots or areas of tension.
Acupressure is a deeper style of treatment but with an experienced practitioner the pressure can be carefully applied and varied depending on the persons pain threshold, making it a very relieving and effective style of treatment leaving you feeling the results straight away.
