Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points on the body.



Physiotherapy is known to help manage and support a large number of musculoskeletal conditions

Herbal medicine


Did you know that many drugs today actually originated from plants?



This physical therapy uses small glass or plastic cups as suction devices which are placed on the skin for about 10 minutes.



This is a form of heat therapy which is applied to specific areas of the body, often acupuncture points, in order to warm the area to ease pain and restore balanced function in the body.

Clinical nutrition


What we eat and drink affects not only our physical body – it also has a profound effect on our thoughts, mental health and emotional health, all of which then have a direct effect on our physical health.



Naturopathy is a system of medicine whereby the trained naturopath uses many different techniques and therapies to provide the body with the tools as it attempts to heal and find health again.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture


Cosmetic Acupuncture is a Chinese Medicine practice now widely embraced in the West.

Craniosacral Osteopathy


Osteopaths are allied health professionals that offer patient-centred approaches to healthcare and functional improvement which recognise the vital link between the structure of the body and the way it functions.
