Treatments to individuals and small groups using the tools of acupuncture, Tui na, Reiki, and sound healing either independently or blending them for an integrated approach. We offer ourselves in service of the Dao to spark and nourish the flame of innate healing that lies within every human heart. To bring support and nourishment where we can. To enable those who come to create healthy lives, and to become themselves as much as possible with freedom, creativity and joy.
In the language of Daoist philosophy we’re helping to move what is dense, stagnant and congested, enabling what is obstructed to flow again, bringing breath and consciousness to places forgotten and lacking in the flow of Qi (life).
The role of the healer
The role of the healer, therapist or doctor, is shifting and changing. If healing happens from within the person, then it’s not something that is done to someone by someone else. In this case, the role of the healer becomes one of inspirer and channel. The present non–judgemental listener, who creates a resonant space that allows the potential for change, transformation and healing to occur.
What happens when you come for treatment?
We’ll welcome you into the healing space and ask you questions about yourself and your life. Questions about past history, lifestyle, digestion, sleeping patterns and emotional state as well as questions relating to any main complaint. Initially we need to get to know who you are, and what’s creating pain/discomfort in your life. We will look at your tongue, the colour and coating of which give a good guide to health. We also feel the pulses at your wrists for their quality, strength and rhythm. The tongue and pulses give a clear picture of the energetic state of the internal organs and vital substances of the body.
We may also feel points, along channels and the muscles of your body for further information. We will make a diagnosis according to the principles of Oriental Medicine and create a treatment appropriate to your individual needs.
From us both
We’ve developed a flowing way of working together that integrates our skills and complementary natures (Fire and Water!). We relish the opportunity to work together in the treatment space (as a pair) when we can. This is nothing new of course, it was always the traditional way, both in Tui na, Reiki and the original sound temples.
