Acupuncture is a safe, effective and ancient therapy. Fine, sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body in order to stimulate the body to heal itself, to promote good health and wellbeing.

Traditional Chinese philosophy states that our health depends on the free, continuous flow of life energy (Qi) around the body in channels beneath the skin. Imbalances or blockage of energy causes pain and illness. By inserting acupuncture needles and stimulating the points energy flow is unblocked and balanced.

Research proves acupuncture works by stimulating the brain to produce many chemicals which flood the body with beneficial effects. The result is pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved healing and immunity, relief of stress, boosted energy and improved sleep etc.

Acupuncture is very effective for healing and pain relief in most acute and chronic muscle and joint conditions e.g. tennis or golfer’s elbow, frozen shoulder, shin splints, Achilles or biceps tendonitis, back or neck pain etc.

This is a form of slow, controlled exercise aimed at strengthening the core muscles of the torso, which support and strengthen the spine & body from inside out. True body strength and balance comes from a strong core.

Physiotherapists modify classical Pilates moves to maximise their safety and effectiveness. The spine and core muscles are safely, effectively and progressively strengthened.

One-to-one sessions available.

Pilates is not only excellent for those with back and neck problems. Professional athletes, dancers and gymnasts, practice Pilates daily, to improve strength, balance, athletic performance and to help prevent injury.
