Acupuncture

Remedial Massage

Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles into the body to activate special receptors which communicate with the central nervous, endocrine and cardiovascular systems resulting in the release of natural pain-killing substances and dilation of blood vessels delivering oxygen and nutrient-rich blood, hormones and immune factors to sick areas of the body. 

Nearly 10 millions visits are made by Australians to acupuncturists every year.  This population has sought out acupuncturists for chronic pain and other health problems when conventional medicines do not work.

The NIH and World Health Organization have both given formal approval of certain uses of acupuncture. In fact, 51% of medical doctors believe acupuncture to be influential and of value.

Come in and spend some time talking about your health.  Whether you decide to work with me or not, you will leave the session knowing that there are concrete things you can do to feel better on your own.


SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

The United Nations’ World Health Organisation and the US National Institute for Health recommend acupuncture for a wide range of conditions. Clinical research demonstrates the effectiveness of acupuncture for 46 conditions, with another 71 conditions showing mixed evidence of its efficacy.  Most commonly seen conditions are:

o   Hormonal Imbalances
o   Muscle and joint pain including arthritis
o   Headaches and migraines
o   Emotional Issues (Anxiety, Depression,
       Insomnia)
o   Digestive Imbalances
o   Autoimmune Diseases
o   Plantar fasciitis
o   Nerve pain

    

Remedial massage is a wonderful way of restoring comfort and functionality to joints and muscles. Tight, achy muscles, sore joints and restricted painful range of motion respond well to appropriate remedial massage techniques.

Depending on your issue, Cathy may also suggest incorporating cupping or acupuncture into the treatment to properly get to the causes of muscle and joint pain and not just the symptoms.

There are no magic wands, but rather a gentle and perceptive unravelling of the postural and structural issues that create joint and muscle disharmony, and sometimes the physical habits and personality perspectives, that set us up in the first place.

Information for New Patients

I would like you to know that the work that I do considers not just your body, but also your mind and spirit.  These three aspects make up your whole person and are interconnected, so it makes sense that what affects one system, for example the physical, may also cause stress in the mind and so on.  Therefore the treatments that I do treat the whole person and not just their symptoms, identify and address any underlying causes, and provide ongoing support on your journey of maintaining wellbeing.


Appointments

In order for you to take full advantage of the peace and natural elements surrounding this practice, I ask you to please leave yourself plenty of time so that you are not rushing to make your appointment. I respect your time and always endeavour not to keep you waiting,  


Parking

There is  plenty of parking in the street.  Walk up the driveway and to your left you will see a gate.  Directly inside the gate is a separate entrance to Yin Studio.  Please do not knock on the door, just take a seat, enjoy the garden, and I will greet you when I am finished with my previous patient. If the door is open, please come on inside.


Appointments at short notice

There may be times when such appointments are necessary and I am committed to doing my best when circumstances change or and emergency arises. If you do look online and there is nothing available, it is still worth a text or email to see if I can fit you in.


Cancellations

I would like you to commit to the appointments that you make, and not lose sight of your desire to be fully healthy. Often the old habits that caused us to lose sight of our health priorities in the first place can challenge the times that we may have set aside for an appointments. Try to resist these urges so that you don't disrupt the flow of your treatment and slow down your result.  Yin Studio has a caneellation policy in place that is specified in full when you make a booking online.



“I appreciate your trust in coming to see me, and acknowledge and applaud your decision to improve your health and happiness.”
