Wind and Water are natural forces that demonstrate powerful and harmonious flow in nature.
The wind can be harnessed and directed, but not stopped or contained. Water is one of the most powerful forces in our natural ecosystem.

Acupuncture has been part of
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for
thousands of years. It involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself.

Kinesiology means ‘the study of movement’.
The term is also used by complementary medicine practitioners to describe a form of therapy that uses muscle monitoring (biofeedback) to look at what may be causing ‘imbalances’ in the body and attempts to
relieve these imbalances.
The kinesiology approach examines
‘unresolved stress reactions’ in a person
and provides techniques intended to help
the body’s natural healing process.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy
used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain
and restricted joint movement caused by
muscle or myofascia dysfunction.
Myofascia are the thin, fibrous sheets of
tissue that surround and separate muscles.
Ligaments and tendons are comprised
of bundled myofascia.
The philosophy of myotherapy is founded
on Western medical principles including
anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
Chinese herbal medicine is part of a
larger healing system called
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Chinese herbs are prescribed to normalise imbalanced energy, or Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), that runs through invisible meridians in
the body. Whether or not the philosophy is believed, studies have shown Chinese herbal medicines to be successful in treating a range
of disorders, particularly gynaecological and gastrointestinal disorders.
