Stimulating the body's energy flow to promote healing, Acupuncture has been practiced in eastern countries for 5,000 years. It's a traditional form of Chinese medicine based on the understanding that our body's motivating energy force or Qi (pronounced chi) moves through a network of channels, or meridians, that run beneath the skin. According to Acupuncture theory, illness arises from blockages in the energy flow. Therapists insert fine, sterile needles at various points on the Meridians to re-balance the body's energy.
Acupuncture is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for all. It's often used for pain relief and to help people overcome addictions. Clients also come to Acupuncture for many other conditions including arthritis, circulatory problems, infertility, menstrual problems, migraines and stress disorders. Generally, treatment would be aimed at strengthening the constitution and helping prevent illness.
Natural Nutrition is a wonderful system that helps facilitate an unwinding of the body by removing challenging food choices and offering supportive, functional foods in replacement. This art is enhanced by the accompaniment of optional naturopathic detoxification techniques, such as: dry skin brushing, hot and cold showering, hot and cold tubbing, castor oil packing, epsom salt bathing and hydrotherapy. Whilst working with diet and techniques we also employ a bespoke course of food state natural supplements from Cytoplan.
The Natural Nutrition approach to understanding health is quite different from many nutritional approaches practiced today, which focus on understanding complaints from a Western medical understanding. The Natural Nutrition approach keeps one eye informed by Western medicine but is also enriched by observing cases through the lens of Eastern philosophy, particularly the Chinese Five Element theory and also Homeopathic philosophies, such as Hering's Law and the theory of miasm.
