Acupuncture And Chinese Medicine With Ellie
Chinese medicine is a holistic approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease (or illness).
Rather than focusing on an individual symptom, a practitioner forms their diagnosis based on the entire functioning of the body. By identifying patterns of disharmony, a suitable course of treatment is selected, either utilising one or a combination of therapies, most commonly, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, gua sha, tuina massage, cupping or moxibustion.
The aim of a Chinese medicine practitioner is to improve symptoms, but most importantly, to treat the root cause of disease.
This approach not only prevents the recurrence of the condition, but also aids in the rebalancing of the body overall, and promotes a stronger functioning so that the body is in a condition where disease is less likely.
Research now indicates that Chinese medicine (the use of acupuncture, herbs and other techniques) can be effective in treating diseases including, but not limited to, anxiety, insomnia, stress, infertility, gout, digestive disorders, skin conditions, inflammation, body pain and circulatory issues.
Ellie trained for 4 years in Canada and is passionate about Chinese medicine. She is a full member of the Acupuncture Society. More details about Ellie can be found on her website: www.acupuncturedevon.co.uk

Clinical Hypnotherapy With Alison
Alison was a former orthopedic nurse in the NHS but now concentrates on her own private practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapy is a combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis. The Psychotherapy in itself is extremely beneficial and its effects are enhanced by the application of Hypnosis, which enables the subconscious mind to make beneficial changes. The type of Psychotherapy I practise does not involve delving into painful memories from the past. If you have experienced unpleasant past events, these are acknowledged but not analysed. Instead, I work with you to help you move forward to where you would like to be.
Creative Kinesiology & Reiki with Claire
Creative Kinesiology (CK) is a great way to investigate anything that you want to get to the bottom of. It can help you to move forwards with your health, your career and your relationships. CK typically works to resolve issues and trauma from the past that are held in the body and are causing problems in the present.
A Kinesiologist tests muscle tone. Muscle-testing is a gentle and non-invasive practice that shows the practitioner and client the location of the stress in the system. The muscle-test is a way of tapping into the body’s knowing. The therapist and client then work together to find the root cause of the stress and the best way to heal it.
A lot of healing can happen in just one session, although most people find they want to come back for more! It is a brilliant therapy for people who are interested in personal development, it helps you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself.
Claire is an experienced therapist with a background in Occupational Therapy, with additional qualifications in Natural Nutrition, Crystal Healing and Reiki as well as Kinesiology.
