Chinese Deep Tissue (Tui Na)

The meaning of the Chinese term Tui Na is push (Tui) and grasp (Na). Tui Na refers to what the practitioner does to the qi while rubbing and manipulating your muscles.

Chinese massage is a nurturing therapy designed to guide the qi through the blockages in your body caused by imbalances in your system. Chinese Medicine states that qi must flow like a river. The damming of the river must be avoided or disease will follow.

Reflexology (Foot Care)

Reflexology promotes relaxation and well being. This ancient therapy is known to promote the body's own healing powers. It is suitable for any age groups, from babies to seniors.

Reflexology is more than a foot massage, it's a natural healing therapy which is highly effective in dealing with many complaints. Reflexology is based on the principle that the foot, divided in reflex zones, is a mirror image of the body. Each reflex zone corresponds to a part of the body. Specific manipulation and pressure of these zones reduces and eliminates blockages in corresponding glands, organs and other parts of the body.

Ear Candling

Ear Candling therapy makes use of the simple laws of science. When the candle is inserted into the ear and lit the flame creates a vacuum drawing wax, candida, yeast, and other debris from the ear canal into the hollow candle.

It also stimulates energy points and reflex zones.The high energy light from the flame penetrates through the candle tunnel, transporting a vital spectral frequency inward to important energy centres. The cleansing fire carries negative vibrations away from the metabolic energy fields and harmonises the energy status. As well as offering real and marked benefits in a non-invasive manner for many ear, nose and throat problems, an ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.

Fire Cupping therapy

Fire Cupping therapy is the ancient Chinese use. A flame is contributed to a riddance of oxygen out of a glass cup thus creating a suction effect. Cups with suction can be placed to different parts of the body to eradicate the toxins in the body.

Today, cupping is mainly recommended for the treatment of pain, gastro-intestinal disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), and paralysis, though it can be used for other disorders as well. Plus, cupping is greatly effective to aching muscles, digestive problems, muscular-skeletal conditions, scar tissues and menstrual problems.
