Information about our specific treatment types:
Acupuncture is the Art of inserting thin sterile needles into specific body points to improve health and wellbeing. It originated in China more than 2,000 years ago, using the 5 Element Theory and the Yin-Yang principles to restore the balance in the Unity of Body Mind and Spirit.
Research has proven that activating the Meridians (the energy pathways in the body), various glands in the body secrete hormones more efficiently, which results in faster repair of tissues, decrease in pain and a state of relaxation.
Acupuncture can effectively treat headaches, menstrual pain, back pain, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, insomnia, anxiety, improves blood circulation, strengthens the immune system and overall increases performance and wellbeing.
If all this talk about needles is making you squirm, there is an alternative; acupuncture points can also be effectively stimulated with a low energy laser beam that is harmless and painless. Many clinical acupuncturists use a laser, which is a modern Western modification. Laser has the distinct advantage of being able to treat children, and those with needle phobia. They have several other advantages:
- Speeding up the healing of injured tissues e.g. ulcers and fever blisters, following injury or surgery
- Stimulating circulation
- Reducing inflammation
- Stimulating new cell growth
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique using finger pressure on specific parts of the body to reduce tension, increase circulation and harmonize the chi (energy) in the body. Acupressure is a holistic approach balancing mind, body, emotion and spirit. Traditionally used to relieve headaches, reduce stress, pain, improve digestion, sleeping disorders and to calm the mind.
Remedial massage is a combination of various western techniques, such as, Swedish, Myofascial, Triggerpoint and Lymphatic drainage Massage. Remedial massage involves deep tissue manipulation alternating with relaxing techniques and stretching, to relieve pain and expel tension from the body.
Reflexology is the art of using reflex points on the feet and hands. These points correspond to all parts of the body. The thousands of nerve endings in the feet and hands promote local pain relief, improve the lymphatic flow and strengthen the immune response. Using thumb and finger techniques to activate the nerves and pressure points, traditionally used for headaches, improve digestion, eyesight, strengthen the kidneys and with that the core of the bodies energy. Reflexology also has a very relaxing effect on the body.
Neck & Scalp Massage
Neck and scalp massage is a gentle technique using warmed aromatherapy oils applied to neck, scalp, face and shoulders using thumb, hand and finger pressure. We use a combination of various styles such as Indian Scalp and Western Massage, combined with pressure points. It has a profound effect to relax the head, face, neck and shoulders, calm the spirit and slow down the mind. Relieves headaches, improves the sensory organs and brings the patient into a deep state of being.
Back massage is concentrating on the back of the body, using a combination of acupressure, Swedish and Tuina techniques with cupping (if necessary) to relieve pain and tension for the neck, back and shoulders. The whole body benefits from the massage because of the nerve endings next to the spine and the various acupressure points which are being treated.
Tune -In is a 20' minute 'dry massage' for fast relief of muscle tension & pain or simply for pure relaxation.
Tune-In uses Acupressure points along the entire back and gentle stretching techniques that will open and invigorate your body.

Cupping is an ancient technique used in many different cultures all over the world. In modern times we use glass cups to promote circulation and relieve stagnation and pain in the deep tissue of the body. It is a very safe technique using a flame to remove the air and create suction in the cup and then applied to specific parts of the body. Cupping is used to relieve lower back pain, frozen shoulders, headaches and tension in any part of the body using the acupuncture principles.
Chinese Herbs are used to compliment your treatments especially where there is a chronic imbalance. Many alignments benefit from the purifying effects of the herbs.
Based on a long tradition of several millennial these herbal formulas have been used to optimize the circulation of Qi (energy) and blood, clear phlegm, improve digestion, clear pathogens and bacteria that reside in the body, strengthening the immune system. Excellent to harmonize menstrual imbalances and pain by unblocking the channels in the abdominal area and by improving the quality of blood.
