Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

The basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy and Acupuncture theory is holistic and acknowledges the existence of a primary motivating force behind all life, energy meridians flowing through the body, which form a complex network.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method, which involves the use of fine needles and heat to promote healing in the body. It has been used for hundreds of centuries and has seen a surge in popular medicine treatments for a variety of disorders, including muscular skeletal problems, stress and to relieve pain.

Reflexology Foot Zones are like a healthy information map connected to the internal organs of your body. Regular acupressure on these reflex points can have a benefit to the body’s health including relaxation, increasing blood circulation and helping to flush out toxins accumulating in our systems.

Chinese cupping therapy is an ancient healing method that effectively accelerates blood circulation, expels patho-logical wind and dampness and relieves pain.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

“Why Acupuncture? Being a motor mechanic for 16 years I experienced emotional and physical pain due to stress and overwork, this led me to a drastic career change in 2016. 

Most of my life I have studied Martial Arts and during my training in Taekwondo, Wushu, and Wing Chun I began understanding acupoints and in the last 6 years came to realize the healing effects that acupuncture can have on the mind, body, and spirit. 


Using Several Balance methods (, I aim for minimal needles with maximum benefits in many health issues.”
