Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine sterile needles to clear blockages in the meridians of the body.

It is based on the principles of Chinese medicine, which assert that the life force (Chi) flows through the twelve meridians of the body. Each meridian is associated with a particular body system or organ. Sluggish or blocked meridians give rise to health problems and imbalance.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

The body experiences subtle rhythmic tidal motions, which are thought to be a direct expression of the health of the system, both physical as well as mental and emotional. Palpation of these tide-like motions allows craniosacral therapists to facilitate change in areas of restriction. This restriction of movement corresponds to a lack of the capacity of the life force to express its self-healing. Through the application of subtle, intelligent touch, a wide variety of chronic and acute conditions can be treated as well as providing a way to induce profound relaxation and to raise vitality.

Craniosacral Therapy is so gentle that it is also suitable for babies, children and the elderly.

Rolfing

Rolfing is an original and scientifically validated system of body restructuring and movement education.

Through a process of re-education, Rolfing brings the body back into alignment with gravity. Rolfing isn’t just vigorous deep-tissue massage — a Rolfer actually wants to change the structure of your body. By creating freedom of movement and space within the structures of your body, the restricted connective tissue, muscle fibres, joints and internal fascial web are released from life-long holding patterns.
