The Chinese and Asian people have been using acupuncture for over 2000 years.Through all this time they have put together a complete system for understanding the working of the body and mind. They found the vital energy of the body (Qi) running mainly in channels and found that they could manipulate the energy at certain points along these channels using various tools including needles and the heat from burning herbs (moxibustion). They found they could strengthen energy that was too weak, expel any excess toxins that had accumulated, and clear blockages in the flow of Qi energy and other vital substances, as well as regulating the functioning of the internal organs by stimulating the points on the channels connected to them. In this way acupuncture can stimulate the body’s natural healing responses, increase resistance to disease and restore the vitality of the body and mind.

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
Well trained reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Some people find it works for them – some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it!
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence for us to make clinical claims of effectiveness.
With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.

Cupping involves the suction of a glass cup, performed by creating a vacuum with a flame before being placed on the body. During a cupping treatment, the skin’s pores are opened and the warming and dispersing effects result in a profoundly increased local blood supply to muscles and skin.
We recommend cupping where the treatment priority is to release tension such as in painful conditions and in areas of muscular rigidity. We also follow traditional methods in China and use cupping to boost the immune system such as for respiratory conditions and to protect from coughs and colds during the winter months.
What conditions can Cupping help?
- Pain-related conditions
- Catching cold
- IBS and Indigestion
- Stress and Anxiety
- Chronic tiredness

There are more than 3,200 herbs in China that can be used in more than 400 different formulas to help various health problems. Each formula is usually comprised of between four to twelve different ingredients, in the forms of teas, powders, pills, tinctures, and syrups.
Generally speaking, one or two herbs in each formula have the greatest effect on the main problem, while other ingredients will help minor aspects of the problem, direct the whole formula to specific parts of the body, and assist the major herbs work more efficiently. Traditional Chinese practitioners prescribe different herb mixtures depending individual patients’ skin, hair, tongue, eyes, pulse, as well as voice conditions. Herb mixtures can be very effective in helping infertility and other health issues.
With more than 5,000 years of history, the Chinese herbalism is a probably the oldest independent continually practised medical therapy in the world.
From the view of the Traditional Chinese Medicine, the illness is more likely caused by external environmental factors, such as, pathogens, bacteria, injuries, accidents, cold, damp and dryness; and also caused by the internal emotional factors, stress, worries, anxiety, depression, anger or grief. As they all tend to drain the body’s energy, leading the organ function be underactive or be overactive.
Working on the same diagnostic basis as acupuncture, Chinese herbalism has powerful healing properties by working on strengthening the internal organs function, and re-establishing the natural balance and harmony within the body.
Chinese herbal medicine is especially effective in the areas of stress, depression, infertility, irregular period, or skin conditions. Herbal medicine can be used separately but is often seen in conjunction with acupuncture.
Chinese herbs are taken as a drink by boiling up dried herbs. They may also be taken as pills, powders, creams and lotions. We are providing traditional treatment for the modern world.
