Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points around the body, to stimulate the flow of Qi and blood. Acupuncture has been used for over 2000 years in China as a major part of their primary and secondary health care system and has progressed in more recent years with the development of new researched techniques.
Heather Dawn specialises in Acupuncture techniques that ease pain, stress and anxiety. To lift mood and support general wellbeing.
TCM Acupuncture can however be used therapeutically and as a preventative for a variety of disorders.
Traditional and Clinical Acupuncture: Traditional acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese principles which go back over two thousand years. It looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance and every treatment is unique to the individual. Clinical Acupuncture is a modern implementation of traditional Chinese acupuncture, following classic researched point combinations
Microsystems Acupuncture: There are around 20 specific Microsystems, zones or parts of the body that represent the whole. Such as the scalp, hand or foot and these identified zones can be used to treat specific health issues. Traditional Chinese medicine theory does apply and simple needle prescriptions can be utilised instead of needling the whole body.
Auricular Acupuncture: Is Acupuncture of the ear. Needles are inserted into specific points on the ear to influence disharmonies. Small well-defined areas of the body, such as the ear, correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Evidence shows that stimulating these areas with needles may help to deal with symptoms such as anxiety.
Battlefield Acupuncture: A rapid acupuncture technique for pain! This technique has entered the UK after extensive use in the US Military and Airforce. 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 often used alongside body acupuncture, however, overflow appointments for severe pain can be provided.
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 surrounding tissues..
Burning a herb over particular acupuncture points and injury sites feels soothing and supports the movement of Qi in the area.
Chi Nei Tsang (Abdominal Detox Massage):
Chi Nei Tsang is an advanced system of Chinese 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, it can help ease tension, lift mood and support general wellbeing.
The abdomen is a microsystem of the body so influences the functions of the entire being.
Applied Qi Gung: Is the gentle application of touch to the joints and tissues. Linking with the natural flexion and extension of the body, Qi Gung gently unwinds and eases tension that can contribute to pain and stress.
Cranial Balancing: Is a gentle hands-on therapy that focuses on easing restrictions in the cranial and sacral regions. The cranial bones move in a gentle, synchronised way to accommodate the expansion and return of Cerebrospinal fluid. This fluid system stretches from the head to the pelvis nourishing our organs and balancing nerve activity. The technique includes soft touch of the cranial area. The technique is very gentle and relaxing.
Thai Foot Massage: The foot is a microsystem of the body. The foot supports the whole structure and influences every movement we make, affecting central balance through the sacrum. So tension in the feet can influence movement elsewhere in the body.
Thai foot massage eases the joints and tissues of the foot and lower leg while stimulating zones, reflex and acupuncture points on the feet and supporting the body as a whole.
Crystal Healing Therapy: Is a system of using Crystals in conjunction with the body’s energy to promote balance and harmony of the whole.
Great numbers of crystals exist beneath the earth’s crust. Crystals flow with and have flowing through them a quality that is similar to electricity and to magnetism, but is neither. Like electricity and magnetism crystal energy is a natural force and it is this energy, individual to each crystal that is often felt during a crystal session.
Crystals are used in a variety of ways, by placing crystals on or near the body and hand held by the practitioner. During a crystal session certain sensations may be experienced, tingling, pins and needles, hot and cold are some of these.
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 and flow of energy around the body and open up areas where energy may be stuck. This is a very gentle and relaxing technique.
Reiki: A natural method of promoting wellbeing. A session is performed fully clothed and involves no manipulation so is suitable for anyone.
Reiki s a Japanese system of Healing, rediscovered in the 1920’s by Dr Usui. The word Reiki is pronounced " Ray - Key ". Rei, = " Universal " Ki, = "Vital life force" So Reiki simply means " Universal life force "
Reiki is a gentle therapy that is relaxing in nature. Receivers of Reiki often experience feelings similar to meditation, an overall sense of wellbeing and an improved sense of self.
Thermal Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candles): Is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. The tradition of ear candling reached the modern world via the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
Only the best quality candles are used: Biosun traditional ear candles are made from premium quality, pesticide-free untreated woven cotton; together with pure beeswax, honey, and herbal essences of sage, st. Johns wort, and chamomile. Free from paraffin and other synthetic ingredients.
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
Clinical Holistic Aromatherapy: Is the art and science of using Essences/Essential oils extracted from plants to support health and wellbeing.
Essential oils are commonly used in massage, but can also be used via other means such as, Baths, Inhalations, Compresses and Vaporisation.
The word aromatherapy suggests it works exclusively through our sense of smell and on the emotions. Although this does play a vital role in aromatherapy the process does not end there. For apart from its scent each essence has an individual combination of constituents, which support the body to achieve spiritual, physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
Blends can be produced to enhance any form of oil massage. Personal products can also be created for home application as an extension of your session.
Guided Visualisation: Is a relaxation technique that involves no touch. The receiver is taken on a journey in their 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.
Guided visualisation is a form of meditation which is conducive to relaxing the whole body, physically, emotionally and mentally. By finding a way of peaceful and calming relaxation from within the body a person in meditation can find a true sense of inner peace.
Guided visualisation will be accompanied by soft music or sounds of nature.
Self-help techniques: Guidance and support can be provided one to one or via workshops.
Techniques such as affirmations, meditation, relaxation and focusing can support the elimination of negative behavioural and thought patterns and help create a positive outlook.
By working one to one personal goals can be set and an action plan created.
