Our Services

Herbal Medicine

Herbs were commonly used before western pharmaceuticals were introduced. Treating and preventing medical conditions with herbs is naturally safe, as an overdose would cause irritation or nausea instead of landing in the emergency room. However herbs should be prescribed by special trained practitioners for therapeutic use. Some herbs can be toxin, some are used only when symptoms appear and some are safely used for any age.

We use an array of proven methods both modern and traditional techniques such as electric acupuncture methods, hot needling, saline injection therapy, advanced TENS stimulation and painless laser acupuncture. Our goal is to treat and relieve the root of your pain instead of using pharmaceuticals or pain suppressants. 


Cupping / Moxa / Tuina

Cupping is a popular form of alternative pain therapy that is used widely with elite sportspeople. 

 Cupping has also been found to minimise pain by applying suction cups on the skin for a few minutes.  Cupping releases the tension of deep muscles, detoxifies and activates the lymphatic system, reduces inflammation and clears local blockages.

Moxa warms regions and meridian points with the effect of stimulating circulation and improved blood flow.   It is a very useful treatment for patients with inflammation such as tendonitis, sprains and joint pain.
