The experience of pain is different for every person and comes in many different forms, from headaches to menstrual cramps, back pain to sport injuries and joint pain. It can be debilitating impacting your overall quality of life. Each treatment is tailored to your needs to ease pain while treating the root cause to provide long lasting relief.
In Chinese Medicine pain is a signal for a blockage in the flow of Qi (energy) in your body. When Qi is blocked the pressure builds up in the local tissues causing pain. The blockage can also limit the flow of Qi reaching a part of the body and over time results in limited movement and/or degeneration. Treatment helps improve your body’s healing abilities. It acts on the nervous system, reducing inflammation and promoting circulation to ease pain and speed up recovery.

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.
