Acupuncture is a treatment used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is a sophisticated and complete medical system of diagnosis and treatments that have evolved over more than 3000 years. It has been embraced internationally due to it’s proven effectiveness and it’s now the largest drug-free healthcare therapy in the World. It is compatible with and often used in conjunction with Western medicine.
Acupuncturists combine both a traditional understanding of the body from a TCM perspective with modern innovations from current research. Other TCM treatments may be used in conjunction with acupuncture including Herbal medicine, Moxibustion (heat), cupping (suction cups), Tuina (massage), dietary therapy, lifestyle advice and therapeutic exercises such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi.
Combining the best of Eastern and Western techniques to bring you the longest lasting natural effects. Acupuncture provides a safe, pain-free and effective way of refining lines and improving the appearance of complexion by increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production.
Combining the acupuncture treatment with LED Phototherapy to add another layer of regenerative healing. LED therapy involves having low-power red /blue/ infrared light wavelengths emitted directly through the skin. This process cannot be felt and is not painful because it does not produce any heat. The light is absorbed into the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 millimetres, at which point it has positive effects on cellular energy, the nervous system and increases blood circulation, helping to bring more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and cells.
Once the needles have been removed Una then uses a microcurrent mask to further enhance skin repair and muscle re-education. Microcurrent treatment mirrors your own body’s electrical output by emitting very similar low-voltage electrical currents. These currents trigger the body’s production of amino acids and ATP, accelerates cell repair and promotes healthier cell production. Microcurrent facials act like a “facial workout”, and a form of muscular re-education for the face.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is based on the theory that different points and areas on the feet, lower leg, hands, face and ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexology is an ancient therapy which has been practised for over 5000 years and we believe that working these points or areas can help aid relaxation, improve mood, release tension, enhance sleep and can generally help improve wellbeing; allowing us to cope better with the stresses that life can bring.
We are completely unaware of how much tension we carry in our face. Next to our hands our facial muscles are possibly the most used voluntary muscles in the body. Facial Reflexology aims to help your entire body function at it’s optimum level, with one side effect. More radiant, firmer, glowing complexion.
The face provides a beautiful and precise tool to read what is going on within the body’s internal organs, central nervous system and neuro-biological systems. The face’s close proximity to the brain and cranial nerves especially make Facial Reflexology very powerful in impacting the body systems.
