We apply a clinically based Japanese approach that comes directly from traditional and classical acupuncture texts. The Japanese style of needling involves very fine, thin and flexible needles compared to those used in Chinese Acupuncture. Japanese Acupuncture is often described as being painless as it is gentler and less invasive.
Our practitioners combine classical texts on traditional Chinese medicine with current western concepts and modern medical knowledge, to provide a greater understand and holistic approach for every client. Our aim is simply to improve health and increase your happiness and overall wellbeing.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
