Accupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. Book here with your local Ambassador:

Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. It is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) technique, based on the same ideas as acupuncture, using the same points and meridians but with the physical pressure of fingers, hands or elbows, rather than needles. In acupressure, key points on the skin’s surface, are pressed, to release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force energy (chi / ki) to aid the body’s own healing. Acupressure also tends to help your body integrate various bodywork therapies: therapeutic touch, somatic work, healing imagery, and massage therapy techniques. Book here with your local Ambassador:

Researched at major Universities, taught in several Chiropractic Colleges and in Professional continued educational seminars, B.E.S.T. is recognised as an effective healing science.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is a subtle technique involving the muscle nerve and connective tissue. As a painless and non-invasive therapy, it is suitable for everyone. It has a calming affect by tapping into the body’s natural feedback system, which monitors the state of all muscles, thus releasing the built up tension and allowing the body to heal itself. Bowen assists in removing any energy blocks, often when accumulated causing pain, tension and disease. It is a wonderful energiser and stress reliever for all ages. A treatment involves gentle movements to specific sites of the body. There is no forced manipulation, only light cross fibre manoeuvring of muscle tendons or ligaments. The initial treatment works to balance and realign the entire body (including the endocrine, immune and the nervous systems), providing an overall sense of clarity and stability, bringing the whole body into harmony. By eliminating toxins and improving circulation, Bowen works to heal and correct the affected areas. It also continues to work throughout the body for at least 7 days, achieving remarkable results. The number of sessions required to achieve optimal results depends upon the severity of the symptoms.

Counselling

Counselling falls under the umbrella term ‘talking therapies’ and allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment. The term can mean different things to different people, but in general it is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.

A counsellor is not there to sit you down and tell you what to do – instead they will encourage you to talk about what’s bothering you in order to uncover any root causes and identify your specific ways of thinking. The counsellor may then look to create a plan of action to either help you reconcile your issues or help you to find ways of coping.

Cupping

With origins in ancient Chinese therapy, Cupping can have many benefits to activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation and stimulate deep tissue repair. A cup is used to create a vacuum effect on acupressure points and muscles of the body to mobilise blood flow, encouraging healing. Cupping works to open and rejuvenate Meridians, the conduit for energy flow in the body, invigorating energy to move through the whole body. Cupping is a safe, non-invasive and high beneficial technique. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, cupping is used to treat colds, lung infections, helps control asthma and problems in the internal organs. It is also used to treat muscle and joint pain and spasms, particularly in the neck & back, and stimulate blood circulation. Cupping can be used on people for whom the injection of acupuncture needles poses a problem or risk. It is also a highly efficient way of releasing muscle tightness/ knots quickly and effectively.

The foetal connection is also relevant here, as the womb is largely a liquid environment. This has the effect of releasing energy blockages and rebalancing the body and mind.

Trigger points, also known as myofascial trigger points, are areas of hyperirritability in the soft tissue structure. These can be acute sources of pain or latent, unnoticed by the client until pressure is applied by the practitioner. Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction and active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain.

Treatment consists of physical therapy, manipulation and stretching. A firm digital pressure is applied by the practitioner, who is able to locate the specific points causing pain and restricted movement and these may often be located in places different to where the client actually feels the pain.
