The word yoga is an ancient Sanskrit word that means union. It is often thought of as union between the body, mind and spirit. In the West, the word yoga is also used to describe a practice in which asanas or physical postures are used to help create balance in the body. It is a great way to develop strength and flexibility, while improving health and wellbeing. In addition, it cultivates the ability to tune into and live in the present moment, encouraging a stress-free state of mind.


Acupuncture is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a comprehensive medical system used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve wellbeing. It can be traced back thousands of years. According to TCM, good health depends on your Qi or life-force flowing freely through your body in a network of channels or meridians. Any interruption to this flow can result in imbalances, blockages or stagnation, which can lead to illness.

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi, thereby helping your body to balance and heal itself. It is the world’s largest drug-free health care therapy and is compatible with Western medicine.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the more important modalities used in TCM. Based on your symptoms and signs, a unique herbal prescription, made up of a number of herbs, is put together. The herbs come from a wide variety of plants, and it is the balance and interaction of all the ingredients that make the herbal prescription effective.

Herbs can be taken as a tea, in freeze-dried granules, or in powder or tablet form.


Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of ageing.  It stimulates the cells that lay down new collagen and tones the facial muscles and skin, making you feel and look younger. It is a natural way to counter the ageing process.
