Acupuncture: Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points around the body, to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi. Acupuncture has been used for over 3000 years in China as a major part of their primary and secondary health care system.
Heather Dawn specialises in Acupuncture to ease stress, anxiety and musculo-skeletal pain.
TCM Acupuncture can however be used therapeutically and as a preventative for a variety of disorders.
Auricular Acupuncture: Is acupuncture of the ear. Needles are inserted into specific points to create a feeling of calm, where the mind can be settled and the spirit lifted. Auricular acupuncture is indicated for Psychological and Neurological symptoms and can be supportive for anyone wanting to feel revitalised, more positive and relaxed.
A rapid acupuncture technique for pain!
After assessing pain levels a tiny semi-permanent needle is inserted into the ear then gentle exercise (such as walking) is used to activate the point. Following further pain assessment another needle is inserted...up to five per ear may be used. Battlefield acupuncture is generally used alongside body acupuncture, however, overflow appointments for acute pain (including acute on chronic) with known cause can be provided.
Crystal Healing Therapy: Is a system of using Crystals in conjunction with the body’s energy to promote balance and harmony of the whole.
Crystals are used in a variety of ways, by placing crystals on or near the body and hand held by the practitioner. Crystal Therapy promotes a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing.
Crystal Acupuncture: This technique incorporates the principles of acupuncture and the gentle non-invasive element of crystal therapy. Small crystals are placed on meridians and acupuncture points. These crystals support the movement or flow of energy around the body and open up areas where energy may be stuck. This is a very gentle and relaxing technique.
Oriental Body Balance: Utilises a variety of techniques from traditional practices and western therapy. Techniques (listed below*), the use of muscle testing and pelvic balancing are applied to the body as appropriate for an individual so every session is unique and aimed to support your individual needs.
*Cupping and Moxibustion: Traditional Chinese cupping utilises a glass jar. By creating a vacuum the jars can be applied to the body where they stimulate the movement of blood and Qi and aid in the removal of toxins. This action aids in reduction of pain and decongestion of the surrounding tissues.
Burning a herb over particular acupuncture points and injury sites feels soothing and supports the movement of Qi in the area.
*Cranial Balancing: Is a gentle hands-on therapy that focuses on easing restrictions in the sacral and cranial regions.The technique includes soft touch of the cranial area. The technique is very gentle.

Reiki: A traditional and natural method of promoting harmony. A session is performed fully clothed and involves no manipulation so is suitable for anyone.
Thermal Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candles): Is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. The candle, which is a tube, is placed to the ear where a ‘chimney effect’ is created. This chimney effect gently massages the inner ear providing gentle warmth that is extremely relaxing. The treatment is supportive in achieving equilibrium of the inner ear and providing relaxation
Guided Visualisation: You are taken on a journey in your mind which provides time and space to re-focus and let go of tension. Guided visualisation can provide‘time out’ from a hectic lifestyle and help to develop personal coping mechanisms.
Clinical Holistic Aromatherapy: Is the art and science of using Essences/ Essential oils extracted from plants to support health and wellbeing. Blends can be produced to enhance any form of oil massage and/ or mixed into creams or other bases for home application
Signature Massage: My signature massage incorporates a variety of Oriental massage styles (Thai and Chinese - Tuina) It is initially applied dry through clothing or a towel and Incorporates deep pressure using hands, arms and elbows to the back, hips, legs and feet. An individual blend of essential oils is then applied to the back where long relaxing massage strokes are applied to release tension from the upper body and neck.
Therapeutic Massage: Is generally superficial to medium in depth and useful for the promotion of relaxation. This technique is particularly useful where muscle soreness is an issue. This style of massage is suitable for individuals experiencing chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia and for general wellbeing or relaxation.
Thai Foot Massage: Thai foot massage eases the joints and tissues of the foot and lower leg while covering reflex points on the feet to support the body as a whole. This is a must for any regular maintenance programme!
Abdominal Detox Massage (Chi Nei Tsang): Is a Chinese term for an internal organ Chi massage. In the West the abdomen is known as the second brain, if this area is knotted up the whole energy of the body becomes sluggish and physical and emotional strain can be experienced. Chi Nei Tsang involves deep massage of the abdomen and can help ease tension, lift mood and support general wellbeing.
Indian Head Massage:Is a gentle technique based on ayurvedic philosophy. A variety of massage strokes are used, including deep kneading and compression movements over the neck and shoulders and gentle manipulation of the scalp. Pressure points on the face and neck can also be incorporated into the session.
