What is acupuncture? Acupuncture is a holistic health technique that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practices, in which trained practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles into the skin. Today, acupuncture is one of the most popular practices of TCM in the West. TCM is a complementary health approach that first originated in ancient China more than 2,500 years ago and has been evolving ever since. Because the goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy which flows throughout the body, the benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression, to digestive complaints such as nausea, vomiting and irritable bowel syndrome.

What do you offer at your practice? We take your pulse to check the state of your organs (lungs, liver, spleen, heart and kidneys). We then treat the organs that require attention, before treating the symptoms. Organs are responsible for our feeling unwell, well-being and healing, which is why it’s important to treat your organs first. For instance, people mistake joint pain for arthritis, but from organ reading (pulse taking), we can confirm or identify actual cause of disease, mostly spleen energy, which impacts on muscles.

Our services include Acupuncture, Lymph drainage, Kersai Nei Tsang (clinical genital massage) and Thai massage.

How did you get in to acupuncture therapy? I developed a strong interest in natural healing and health in my personal capacity, and that grew into a deep desire to learn and understand more about alternative health solutions that would help other people reach their health goals and/or assist them with managing their health issues and concerns. Acupuncture found me in that process and became my passion. Seeing the positive effects of it in combination with my prayers, Ayurveda, Thai training and surrendering my skills to God so that He heals my clients through me.
