The Therapies


Traditional acupuncture is one of the oldest medical procedures in the world, and its origins lie in ancient China and other eastern cultures, which can be traced back over 4000 years. As a result, acupuncture is now widely used and accepted all over the world. Therefore it can benefit the whole body and all ages.

Acupuncture points are also used for other treatments such as acupressure massage, Chinese Cupping and moxibustion. This is beneficial where patients have a dislike or fear of needles.

The definition of Hypnotherapy by the NHS is a complementary therapy which uses hypnosis, an altered state of consciousness, to achieve therapeutic benefits.  Hypnotherapy is therefore a wonderful tool that can help with a huge array of life issues.  Everything from IBS, pain relief, weight loss and stop smoking, in addition to anxiety, stress, relationship issues, self esteem and confidence, fears and phobias, even exam preparation.
