This is our first post and we would like to welcome you to our Health Blog. In this article we will be talking a little bit about Acupressure, telling you a little about the other services we offer and a little about what’s coming up.
I like to refer to acupressure as the ‘touch that heals’. It’s very old in fact around 5,000 years old and precedes acupuncture. The main difference between acupressure and acupuncture is acupressure uses finger pressure and acupuncture uses needles.
I’ve been practicing acupressure since 2008 and have seen it release tension, alleviate pain, improve circulation and bring an overall balance to the body and mind thereby contributing to a major improvement in general health.
Facial beauty using Acupressure
I’ve been working with one client who has regular facial acupressure and continues to have the sessions because she often receives comments such as “what have you been doing to your skin” “what have you been doing to your neck, why it look so smooth”. Well, my client is convinced that these comments can be attributed to the facial acupressure treatments. Having Acupressure treatments, over time, improves skin condition and tones the facial muscles. When finger pressure is applied on the appropriate points on the face and with facial exercises, this relieves congested areas and relaxes the muscles and helps to release and eliminate toxins.
It is recommended that you have at least four treatments and included in these treatments I will teach you how you can apply a little acupressure yourself thereby helping your body to be balanced and promote good health.
Weight Loss and Nutrition Clinic
The weight loss clinic is now up and running. You will be weighed and measured, and we can discuss your body mass index and work with you on strategies to reduce weight. I will also be working with you on a food diary that will not only help you to lose weight but also ensure that you do not lose your love for food, thereby changing your relationship with food instead of compromising your love of good food!
Nutritional status will be discussed and rectified by using a combination of food choices that are packed with necessary vitamins and minerals, additional vitamin supplements or herbal medicine.
Some clients have been asking about Laboratory testing. We do provide this service through Genova Diagnostics who are fully certified and they offer a wide range of tests. I will suggest that you have laboratory testing if appropriate. This is a private laboratory, therefore please bear in mind that you will have to pay for tests.
What’s coming up!
We will be launching our series of workshops under which we will cover topics such as breast cancer and nutritional well being, understanding your body from a natural health perspective, the role of energy medicine for stress reduction, etc…so watch this space for further announcements.
