Acupuncture

​Individuals may seek acupuncture for a broad range of conditions such as aches and pains, physical problems, mental or emotional conditions, fertility, chronic and acute illness or as a preventative treatment for health and wellbeing.

The use of Acupuncture for certain conditions has been validated by the world Health Organisation, The National Health Service (NHS) and other medical organisations.  Research carried out on 495 patients at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine found that the majority (82.2%) of responding patients reported a large or moderate change in their main complaint and 88% a large or moderate change in their general health. *

"I had struggled with Tennis Elbow and had tried a couple of things but it always niggled. I was quite sceptical about acupuncture, however, I cannot believe after one session I am no longer troubled with it. It's now a couple of months since treatment and it still feels great. Claire explained everything and the treatment was carried out in a caring and compassionate way."

Alison. A, Client
Three Treasures Treatment

 

The Three Treasures Facial Acupuncture Treatment enhances your inherent beauty, brightens your skin, and supports overall well-being by fusing the age-old wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the potency of acupuncture.

Through the insertion of extremely tiny needles into particular facial sites, facial acupuncture seeks to promote and rebuild the underlying skin matrix. The procedure is typically painless and calming for most patients.

In order to promote a more youthful and refreshed appearance, treatments strive to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift, tone, and increase firmness in the skin. They also stimulate the creation of collagen, elastin and blood flow.

 In order to activate and strengthen the body's inherent healing abilities and promote homeostasis, I will take into account the client's general well-being while administering needles to constitutional sites on your body. The basis of holistic medicine is the body-mind continuum, which is used to treat and assess the body and mind simultaneously.

This treatment is offered as two separate facial acupuncture therapies. They are both over the course of 60 minutes which involves a release of fascial facial adhesions in the skin resulting in a winding back the hand of time.

The treatment consists of a consultation, facial point acupuncture, face cleansing, face massage, abdomen massage and a Gua Sha treatment.
