Chinese Herbal Medicine
Shelley originally trained Rebecca in raw herbs in 2000 so she is well qualified and clinically experienced . Both are able to use individualised Chinese herbal Medicine .
Shelley uses the Tan Balance method of acupuncture, based on the 1800 BC Yi Jing Ba Gua, considered Ancient Chinese medicine. Shelley uses a particular application for managing pain syndromes by finding “switches” on the meridians that require balancing . Her method uses distally applied needles. Additional support may also combine individually prescribed herbal medicine to extend the effect if required.
Rebecca trained for 7 years with a 4th generation Chinese practitioner, focussing on meridian-based acupressure massage, cupping and gua sha therapies. She combines traditional oriental bodywork techniques with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to provide complete, holistic treatment plans for acute & chronic musculoskeletal pain. Patients usually receive stretching exercises to do at home so that self management of pain syndromes can be achieved.
In addition to private consultations, Shelley & Rebecca provide reduced cost acupuncture Community open group sessions, FOUR times each week. Drop in or by appointment . Tuesday morning, 10 am – 11.20 am, Wednesday 10 am-11am, Thursday 2-3.20 pm & Friday 9.30 – 11.30 am. New clients need to choose the Wednesday session.
