Acupuncture is a drug free healthcare system which is over 5000 years old. It involves the skilled technique of inserting tiny hair-thin needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to help the body restore health on a physical, psychological and emotional level. It treats both the symptoms and the underlying cause of the problem. By using acupuncture we are directing the body to heal itself.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the practice of combining a number of different herbs into a tailor made prescription. Like acupuncture, its focus is to help and support the body's self healing ability. Herbs are selected carefully and are given to a patient in the form of a boiled tea, pills, granules or tincture extracts. A herbal medicine formula is typically made from 10-15 different herbs which are determined by the individuals complaint. These prescriptions are made specifically to fit each individual.


Moxabustion is a relaxing and gentle heat treatment in which the Chinese herb mugwort is applied to the body or directly onto the acupuncture needle.
