Traditional Chinese Medicine Consultation

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is one of the oldest holistic systems of healing in the world. It is based on classical Chinese medical texts and has been in use for thousands of years.

TCM is based on diagnosing and treating the root cause of any condition or disease, as well as alleviating the symptoms. As no two patients are alike, neither is their treatment

Laser Lipolysis (20 mins)

8 Pad I-Lipo, the latest laser lipolysis, has truly revolutionised the way to shape the body, 
lose unwanted fat ,achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no 
down time.

The i-lipo uses photobiomodulation to trigger the body’s natural processes which release the contents stored in adipose cells. On a day-to-day basis the human body is constantly storing excess calorie intake from the diet into adipose tissue for future use. Energy from the diet is stored in the adipose cells as bulky un-reactive molecules called triglycerides. Triglycerides are not directly used by the body’s metabolic pathways to create energy; instead they have to be converted into usable ‘fuel’. The alteration in the cell chemistry created by i-lipo triggers the release of a lipase enzyme which can break the large triglyceride molecules down into fatty acids and glycerol-molecules which are now small enough to exit the cell through the pores and are the required fuel for metabolism.

Once the cell contents are evacuated into the surrounding interstitial tissue, they are picked up by the lymphatic system for transport to the tissues of the body for use. I-lipo maximizes lymphatic flow by stimulating the lymphatic nodes nearest the treatment area with additional low level lasers.

Exercise after treatment creates a demand for energy within the body – a demand that can now be met by the newly released fatty acids and glycerol removing them from the bodies fat storage system.

When required, signals from the brain result in the contents of cells being released and the contents are then metabolized to provide energy to the bodies’ tissues.

In essence the adipose cells are acting as rechargeable batteries, sometimes being charged up and sometimes being used depleted depending on a person’s diet and exercise. When we exercise we create a demand for extra energy in the bodies’ tissues and normally the body responds by releasi

General Practice

Weight Control

The duration of treatment depends on the amount of weight the client wishes to lose.  In addition to taking Herbal Tea, treatment involves 3 sessions of Acupuncture each week, each session lasting 60 to 70 minutes.

For those clients who cannot attend Acupuncture regularly, following an initial consultation it is possible to send Herbal Tea or other herbal remedies by mail in order to help your weight loss.

However, it is always preferable to meet your Practitioner on a regular basis. Regular consultations will help keep you on track and will alert your Practitioner to any changes that need to be made to your herbal formula.
