In addition to needling, I may use the following techniques to complement your treatment.

Moxibustion treatments direct on skin


A form of heat therapy that uses a herb, known as ‘moxa’, which is processed from the leaves of the mugwort plant, to gently warm acupuncture points and meridians.

Its benefits include boosting immunity and stimulating circulation and lymphatic flow, therefore reducing pain and inflammation. It is often used in fertility and gynaecological conditions, and is known to turn breech position babies.

tui na - chinese massage treatments


Chinese therapeutic massage relieves muscle tension, stimulates acupuncture points, opens energy channels and stimulates the flow of Qi.

cupping treatments


Glass suction cups placed on the skin to stimulate blood flow and move blocked Qi.  Sliding cups can be very warming and relaxing.

gua sha treatments

Gua Sha

The rubbing of the skin with a smooth tool to increase blood flow and clear blocked Qi. It is also used to boost immunity and reduce inflammation – particularly effective with patients suffering from Long Covid symptoms.
