Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into points located on meridians (energy pathways) on the body.  It has a long history of use and is very effective as well as safe.  Points are chosen based on what you are seeking help with as other information the practitioner has gathered at the start of your session.  Most people find it very relaxing and nourishing.

Chinese Diet Therapy

Optimising health through diet is a branch of Chinese medicine that plays a large part in overall maintenance of health as well as being applied to help resolve all sorts of ongoing health issues.

Foods and herbs are classified according to their energetics, which may include the thermal nature of a food (heating, cooling or neutral), the flavour and whether the food is tonifying to qi or blood, dispersing or draining. The way food is prepared (cooked or raw, for example) is important to consider as this changes the overall energetics and therapeutic action of the meal.

A Typical Session with Emma

A typical session with Emma involves talking together to gain an understanding on what is happening in your body and mind as well as you receiving massage, acupuncture and some individualised homework (may include nutrition, supplementation with herbs/foods or mindfulness exercises).  The session may also include cupping or moxibustion.
