Relaxation is who you are"
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a safe method of healing, dating back over 3000 years. Traditional Acupuncture works to maintain the body’s equilibrium by focusing on all aspects of wellbeing: physical, mental and emotional.
According to the traditional Chinese healthcare system, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy to move in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. This energy is known as Qi.
The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These include emotional states such as anxiety, anger, grief, as well as poor nutrition, hereditary factors, infections and trauma. When the Qi is unbalanced, illness may result. The acupuncturist inserts ultra fine needles at chosen points along the channels of energy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing response and restore its natural balance.
Eli begins each session creating a case history which includes taking the pulse and examining the tongue, in order to diagnose and to prescribe the right treatment approach. She then puts together a treatment plan, which may include lifestyle and dietary advice as well as Acupuncture. Techniques such as Moxa, acu-pressure, cupping, plum blossom and Guasha (amongst others techniques) will be tailored according to the individual's needs.
