Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach to health. The treatment is focused on the whole person rather than the disease, therefore, in our initial consultation, a thorough questionnaire, careful observation and palpation (if relevant to diagnosis), in addition to feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue are carried out. In Chinese medicine, each person is unique, so treatments are tailored to suit each one of us

Acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment, the needles are single use, sterile and extremely fine so there is usually little or no discomfort on insertion. Patients usually experience a feeling of relaxation during the treatment.



Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine that can be traced back more than 2000 years. It is based on the principle that a blockage or disturbance in the flow of the body’s life energy (Qi) can lead to illnesses.

The aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore and maintain the body’s physical and emotional balance. The treatment involves the insertion of very fine (hair-thin) needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Qi, the body’s vital energy, stimulate a natural healing response, and promote relaxation. In other words, acupuncture can allow your mind and body to be in sync, so you can thrive!!





Gua-sha technique involves scraping the skin with a gua-sha tool after some oil is applied. Like cupping, this therapy increases circulation and blood flow, helping to release muscle tension, and therefore, relieving pain. However, gua-sha often reaches smaller and more superficial areas of the skin compared to cupping.

Gua-sha might leave some bruising or redness in the area. The bruising usually disappears within a couple of days.




In cupping therapy, glass (or silicone) cups are applied to the skin creating suction to increase circulation and blood flow in the area. The cups can be left on as well as be moved around the skin to stimulate a larger surface area giving a massage-like effect. Cupping is a relaxing and non-invasive technique to soften muscle tension and release toxins which can be stored in our bodies. After the cups are removed, there may be a bruise at the local area; this is normal and will disappear within a few days.









It is a form of therapy in which a warming herb is applied directly or indirectly to acupuncture points. The heat from the herbs penetrates the skin improving circulation and invigorating blood. This therapy is used to warm the body and expel coldness. It helps to bring the body into balance and ensure a consistent flow of qi.



The theory of five element is one of the foundations of Chinese Medicine. It is based on the five elements of nature: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

According to this traditional concept of Chinese medicine, everybody has a component of each element in their constitution and when one or more elements are unbalanced, symptoms and diseases manifest.

This style of acupuncture is frequently used in clinical practice, and alongside tongue and pulse diagnosis, it can help with the preparation of a bespoke treatment focused on the root of the disease. A correct diagnosis can have a profound healing effect. Once the balance of these elements is established, optimal health and well-being can be achieved.
