A sanctuary for the facilitation of deep transformational healing

Acupuncture is part of a complex medical system, practiced for over 3000 years and is currently part of the medical system of China. It includes also herbalism, nutrition, massage (tuina) and exercise (qigong).

It is used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness and improve wellbeing. It is also used within the framework of esoteric acupuncture to help the individual become aware of higher frequency healing and to establish a strong connection with their higher selves.

In the last 50 years it has become established as a form of Complementary Medicine in the west. Due to its proven effectiveness it has been recognized by the World Health Organization, and increasingly by medical practitioners.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture influences the flow of Qi (chee) along meridians, which are like imaginary electromagnetic energetic pathways. This energy is described as our life force energy, vital to the functioning of our being as a whole. The insertion of very fine needles at various points along the meridians influence the Qi. Insertion of each needle is so swift that minimal discomfort is involved. The needles are left in position for 45-50 minutes while the individual rests in a relaxed environment.

Postanatal Syndrome

Acupuncture is very effective in treating postnatal syndrome, which include the symptoms of:

  • Loss of libido
  • Lack of joy
  • Inability to cope with more than baby or household affairs
  • May have difficulty in bonding
  • May be very sensitive and highly protective to baby

All the above symptoms are very varying and may be transient, and if last a short time can be due to lack of sleep and heavy blood loss post delivery. If symptoms become ongoing and chronic, this indicates postnatal syndrome.


Acupuncture responds very well to problems with infertility and can be very effective with:

  • Problems related to ovulation
  • Problems of embryo implantation
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS
  • Male Infertility
  • IVF

Women undergoing IVF treatment, who also use Acupuncture may increase the success of the treatment. Acupuncture alone, is also very successful in treating infertility.


Acupuncture is extremely effective for relieving:

  • Hot Flushes
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Heart Palpitations
  • Moods Swings
  • Fuzzy thinking
  • Heavy/Irregular Periods
  • Loss of Libido
  • Headaches and Migraine

Hot flushes are the most common perimenopausal symptom occurring in about 70 – 80% of all perimenopausal women. They can be very mild or so severe that they can result in sleep disturbance an subsequent depression. Acupuncture works to regulate the flow of life energy or qi in the body and therefore is particularly appropriate for perimenopause, a time when our energy is completely renewing itself. In Chinese Medicine diet is also considered and effective way to relieve may symptoms and therefore would be part of the treatment plan.
