In Chinese 'Gongfu' 功夫 can mean 'improvement over time' we believe the knowledge and hand skills needed to be excellent in all areas of bodywork require constant training and refinement.
The core of our collective belief as practitioners is the idea that by constantly improving on ones own knowledge and skills, we are best able to help others from a genuine and authentic place.
Acupuncture is a branch of Chinese Medicine, which originated over 2500 years ago and has been in continuous development and refinement since.

The craniosacral therapist tunes into and listens to the subtle motions of the body through their hands, facilitating a deep self-healing process of the body to release physical and emotional tensions, restoring the system to a more balanced state.
Shiatsu and Shin Tai both
support and strengthen the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself.
Shin Tai works with the receiver's primary energy system, by using firm pressure, gentle holding and mobilisation assisting smooth flow and rebalancing of the breath and fluids.
Shiatsu engages with the meridian system of the whole body both internally and externally and seeks to bring the body into balance via the use of handwork on specific
zones of the body.
Ayurveda is an ancient traditional medical system from India. Ayurveda views each body as a unique composition, made up of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When the doshas become imbalanced the person's body and mind are affected. Ayurvedic treatments aim to return the person to a natural balance. The focus is on preventative health, using diet, lifestyle and massage techniques. Treatments can also support those with long term conditions.
