Cupping therapy has been practiced in China for many centuries. It involves the application of small glass or plastic cups on the skin and treats tight or sore muscles. When the cup is placed on the body a vacuum is created, this has the same effect as a deep tissue massage. The cups can be left over an area or glided along the skin. As with massage, cupping is a very relaxing treatment. It increases the circulation of blood, lymph and oxygen to the area to relax, soften and heal the tissues. Cupping is often used alongside acupuncture treatment but can be used as a standalone therapy.

Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping)
Emotional Freedom Technique is an evidence-based self-help therapeutic tool with many studies demonstrating its efficacy. It uses simple “tapping techniques” on acupuncture points on the head, face and upper body to release the body from an emotion, this in turn releases your mind and enables you to feel free again. EFT can help you take control of consistent negative emotions so you can begin to consciously and deliberately reshape daily life experiences.

Mindfulness is the quality of being present and fully engaged with whatever we are doing at that moment - free from the past and the future, away from distraction and self judgment, being aware of our thoughts whilst feeling and accepting them with kindness, without getting caught up in them. Mindfulness is now well researched and is proven to be effective for mental health and general wellbeing.
