Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine single-use, pre-sterilised needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy. The overall aim of the treatment is to restore the body's equilibrium.
Cupping is the application of rounded glass/plastic/bamboo cups. A vacuum seal is created inside the cup and quickly places onto the skin where treatment is needed to stimulate blood flow and clear stagnant qi. Cupping therapy is often described as a deep warmth, and a tingling sensation.
Stroking action to methodically apply pressure to the skin with a specialised round-ended instrument. Guasha is used to move blocked qi (energy), which is considered to be the main cause of pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
Application of indirect heat using moxa (therapeutic herbs) and/or heat lamps to warm and relax muscles and energy meridians. In moxibustion the moxa is placed either directly on the skin or held just above it, over specific acupuncture points or meridians. The treatment is often described as a warm and soothing sensation.
QiFlow is based on the foundation of Chinese medicine and works on removing blockages in the meridian used in Chinese medicine.
We do repetitive movements, that way the body can go deeper and release any old stagnations that might have been left in the body for a long time. It is similar to qigong in that way but QiFlow gets your body moving differently and you go into a form of repetitive almost dance-like flow movements.
