Balancing your body
Acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It focuses on the individual as a whole, identifying unique patterns of disharmony.
Acupuncture aims to balance the whole person, therefore no two people and their treatment plans will be the same. If you are unsure if acupuncture can help you, please contact Ruth and she will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
An Ancient Science
Chinese Medicine is a healing technique which is over 3000 years old. It is based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow. Acupuncture helps activate the natural healing processes in each patient's body as well as to restore their physical and emotional well-being. As a qualified and registered Acupuncturist, I provide a calm and relaxing environment to allow patients to reduce their stress and anxiety and begin to heal.
Cupping and Moxibustion
Balance Your Qi
Cupping is used in traditional Chinese medicine to stimulate acupuncture points or larger areas of the body. Cups are rounded and made of glass or plastic. They are placed on the skin and create a vacuum inside the cup.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used for thousands of years; The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health. Moxibustion has been used in breech presentation and once demonstrated is administered at home.
