Acupuncture, Tui Na and remedial massage treatments for pain relief

At some point, all of us will experience pain.

Perhaps you were moving a fridge but weren’t using the right technique. Maybe you slept funny.

Sporty type that you are, it’s possible you strained it by putting in too much effort at the gym or on the field.

A key focus of ours is pain reduction.

We employ a range of techniques that not only address the symptoms, but get to the cause.

By doing so, we work with you to reduce the pain you are currently experiencing, and reduce the frequency and intensity of any possible future flare ups.

When you receive treatment with us, you may undergo acupuncture, Tui Na bodywork, remedial massage, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, electro acupuncture and/or the application heat lamps, topical liniments and more. It all depends on the type of pain you are experiencing.

Pain conditions we are experienced in

The United Nations’ World Health Organisation and the US National Institutes for Health say acupuncture is ideal for a range of conditions.

We are experienced in the following conditions.
