In our fast-paced modern world, there is more pressure, from workload to personal stresses and it is imperative that you take time to connect to yourself and nourish your mental and emotional body just as much as your physical body. If left unattended anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder and insomnia can arise.
Chinese medicine understands that the body and mind are interchangeable, interact and that one influences the other, placing equal value on both. It considers emotions and thoughts to have a direct impact on our health. By creating a safe space for you to reconnect with yourself, treatments awaken your body’s ability to self-heal from the inside out. Acupuncture helps to regulate the neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) such as dopamine and noradrenaline to enhance your mood and reduce inflammation.
How you think and feel can greatly impact your ability to interact with others and maintain normal daily activities. I support you in stripping away learned behaviours, limiting beliefs, thinking patterns while creating a chain and spiral of positive thoughts and emotions of confidence, self-worth and joy.
Commonly Treated Conditions

How It Works
Chinese Medicine views the processes of the body as an energy system. Health and wellbeing rely on the smooth and dynamic flow of Qi (energy) through the body through a series of meridians/channels beneath the skin. Treatment aims to restore the smooth flow of Qi correcting imbalances such as deficiencies, stagnations, and excesses. It improves bodily functions and promotes the natural self-healing abilities of your body.
