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.
Osteopathy offers a patient-centred approach to healthcare and functional improvement which recognises the important link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit.
Osteopaths use a range of approaches to enhance function, including manual therapy (mobilisation, stretching, massage and manipulation for ligaments and joints), exercise therapy and programming, equipment prescription, dry needling, lifestyle advice and patient education. Osteopaths determine the mix and frequency of treatment and management approaches using skilled clinical evaluation and diagnostic approaches.

Naturopathic philosophy takes a holistic approach to healing. It is based upon the belief that if one part of a system is out of balance, then all other parts will be affected. Physical, mental or emotional stress on the body can manifest as physical symptoms, causing imbalance. Naturopathy looks to restore balance and harmony to the body and its systems in order to maintain health and vitality.
This is achieved by finding and treating the cause of illness for an individual, rather than masking the symptoms which signify imbalance. In order to treat you, your Naturopath will provide you with a comprehensive consultation that will delve beyond your presenting symptoms/disease.
The aim is for the Naturopath to find the underlying cause of illness and how it is affecting the other systems in the body. They may send you for functional testing, which looks at how the body is working rather than looking for markers of disease. Naturopaths may use a range of different treatments including herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, flower essence therapy and diet & lifestyle modification.
Kinesiology is an ancient healing modality that combines modern anatomy and physiology with eastern medicine philosophy to identify and energetically clear stress and imbalances in the body. Derived from the Chiropractic model, it seeks to address physical, mental and emotional issues being experienced by the individual.
Neuroenergetic Kinesiology, as practiced in our centre, is one of the most modern and comprehensive systems of Kinesiology in the world and has advanced techniques for working with Neurological Pathways for balancing stress on a wide range of emotional issues, as well as pathologies for the 11 main functional systems in the human body.
These include the nervous system, circulatory system, respiratory system, urinary system, digestive system, integumentary system, haemolymphoid system, endocrine and reproductive systems, structural system, eyes and ears systems.
BCST is an advanced body/mind therapy that combines a Western scientific understanding of the body with mindfulness skills, a unique type of touch and an appreciation of the body’s ability to heal itself.
A core principle of BCST is that health is always present in every body. Sometimes when the focus has been on illness, pain or pathology, it is possible to lose a connection with the underlying feelings of health, comfort and ease. BCST can help you reconnect to the health and vitality inside you.
Biodynamic touch is a particular type of touch. It is light and reverential. There is never any pressure, manipulation or force. Your therapist is trained to create a calm, still and embodied presence. This type of touch and presence enables you to feel safe, supported and held. This sense of safety allows your brain to switch from flight or fight to rest and repair. It is in this state that healing and change can begin to take place.
The therapy has its roots in the discoveries made by Osteopath Dr William Garner Sutherland in the late 1800s. He developed an approach to Osteopathy known as “the Cranial Concept”. These original concepts have been refined and extended to become the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy of today.

Cutting of Ties
Cutting the ties process was developed by Mrs. Phyllis Krystal, a psychotherapist over 40 years ago. This process cuts ties from people, attitudes, patterns, habits, roles, rules, regulations and old belief systems that limits us embodying our true self. Cutting the ties process to negative personality traits or toxic people is vital to be free from external control or past conditioning. Commonly the origin of past conditioning can be traced to our childhood.
The process involves visualisation techniques to assist releasing any negative attachments and unhealthy relationships while being supported by Reiki energy and sacred symbols.
Cutting the ties that bind with a relationship in our life is an opening to release judgement or stories we have been taught and carried that no longer serve a purpose.It doesn’t necessarily mean we need to cut a relationship from our life. Some loving relationships can unknowingly have negative effects on our life that may surface as we are moving through growth and change. This is a reset technique allowing you to connect back with yourself and your inner guidance to service you for your highest good.
