What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a profound and ancient system of healing which stems from Chinese Traditional Medicine and has been practiced in the
East for thousands of years. It regards the Mind, Body and Spirit in unity.
Acupuncture is founded on the principle that health is dependent on the state of our vital energy or Qi. Treatments are aimed at
re-establishing the balance of the patient's Qi via the insertion of extremely fine, disposable needles into specific points on the body.
What is Shiatsu?
Originating in Japan, Shiatsu is a traditional Bodywork Therapy utilising a combination of massage and acupressure points. It is
similar to Acupuncture and is a branch of Oriental Medicine.
