What we do
Acupuncture stimulates the body to release its own natural pain killers. It also activates the release of molecules associated with tissue healing and disease resolution. It works by stimulating the sensory nerves in the body to promote healing by releasing feel good endorphins that kickstart the body to heal itself. Acupuncture has been found to reduce stress, increase energy levels, enhance physical performance, prevent illness and pain and can help you take an active role in your own wellness with acupuncture in a modern world.

Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of your feet or hands – known as reflex pathways – containing millions of nerve endings correspond to other parts of the body. Reflexology can help unblock these pathways by ridding the body of toxins and improving circulation. It can boost energy levels and is useful for treating stress and anxiety.
Cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. This enhances circulation, helps relieve pain and pulls out the toxins that can linger in your body’s tissues.
