Acupuncture

Acupuncture works by ensuring that Qi is moving properly through the meridians to maintain or improve health. When we are sick or in pain, it is because the qi is stuck or insufficient and is not getting where it needs to go in order to bring sufficient bodily nourishment. Acupuncture needles are then placed in specific points along the meridians to direct the qi flow and return our bodies to its normal function, and in consequence, returning to health. Sessions generally involve acupuncture, whereby ultrafine needles are inserted at special locations around the body. The acupuncture points are not always close to the part of the body where you experience a problem. For example, if you suffer from headaches, needles may be inserted in your arms or legs.

 

Chinese Herbs

Herbal Medicine plays an important role in treating many conditions including digestive disorders, infertility, high blood pressure, menopause symptoms, sleep disorders, anxiety, many women’s health issues and many more. By creating a customised herbal formula, patients can be assured that their specific constitution is being addressed to restore homeostasis. In prescribing a herbal formula, consideration is always paid to the prescribed pharmaceuticals a patient may be currently taking along with any potential for herb drug interactions is carefully analysed. Depending on your condition, a course of individually tailored herbal capsules and granules may be prescribed. These are made from the finest quality, concentrated herbal powders. Herbal prescriptions are normally available for collection within 24 hours of the consultation.

 

Pediatric Massage

Shonishin paediatric massage is a non-invasive form of acupuncture meridian massage, developed specifically for babies and children up to the age of ten. It was first used in 17th Century Japan and is a very gentle and highly effective treatment for many childhood illnesses. This can easily be learnt during the first few sessions, so that you yourself can give your child daily treatment between visits. This is a skill that can be applied to your other children and for many other situations.

 

 

Cupping/Hijama

Cupping involves attaching small glass cups to the skin by means of vacuum pressure. The cups are normally left in place for a few minutes and may help to clear congestion within the body. Cupping is not painful but can leave slightly red, circular patches on the skin. These patches normally disappear after two or three days.

 

Gua Sha

Gua sha is a method of scrapping superficial level along the meridians with instrument to release pathogens through the skin. On the spots where disorders stay, red spots will be appeared and will be disappeared within 3 to 7 days.

 

Moxibustion

Moxa is made of mugwort. Moxa will be burned on needles or above the skin (indirectly) at acupuncture points. You will feel a pleasant heating sensation into the skin without pain. Moxa warms and activates the movement of energy and blood flow and will synergise the effect of the treatment.

Testimonials

 

 “I saw Eva to help boost my chances of conceiving whilst undergoing IVF. In between sessions I went to the hospital and scans showed that my womb lining had thickened to 7.8 and my follicle count was up to 19.2. A massive improvement which both the doctor and I put down to acupuncture.”

Lucy, 34

 “I was treated by Eva for a frozen shoulder. From the first treatment I felt a difference. I felt instant pain relief and my mood lifted. Eva clearly explained the treatments to me and her empathy and care was exceptional. In future acupuncture,  Eva will be my first medical point of reference.”
