AcuNat’s services include,

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and gentle treatment that has developed over 5,000 years. Needles used in acupuncture are made of high-grade fine stainless steel which have been sterilised and are disposable.  These needles stimulate the circulation of vital energy throughout the body thereby relieving pain, improving physical function and mental/emotional balance in a natural, gentle way.

Cupping

Suction cups are often used in the treatment of many conditions.  These cups are made of glass or plastic and are applied using a suction method to soft tissues such as shoulders, thighs and the back.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is used in conjunction with acupuncture and involves the use of a moxa stick or moxa cones made from the dried leaves of the mugwort plant. These sticks or cones are placed on or near the skin and slowly smoulder until the area becomes warm.  They are used to stimulate the flow of energy and to remove blockages

Electro Acupuncture

Electro acupuncture is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupoints on a patient.  This can be done with either electrodes, or alligator clips clamped to needles.  Once the electrodes or needles are in place, a box which controls the current is turned on and the electro acupuncture can begin usually taking approximately 15 minutes.

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a healing art based on the healing power of nature.  This includes treating the underlying cause within the body to achieve optimal health that may have been compromised by lifestyle, genetic predisposition or dietary imbalances.  Naturopathy aims to restore vitality through supporting and stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms through herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle changes

Herbal Medicine – The use of Chinese and Western herbs are an integral part of your treatment program.  These herbs are usually taken as tablets, capsules, or liquid extracts and have been used for hundres of years with proven effectiveness and safety.  Heather is a trained herbalist who understands dosage, safety and interaction with other medications.

Nutritional Advice– A healthy diet and sound nutritional program is a vital part of overall health.  At AcuNat, your dietary habits and lifestyle are assessed to ensure proper balance.

SLM Body Work

SLM bodywork is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues using a unique combination of acupressure and massage techniques that put length and function back into the muscles and balance the body, allowing it to function normally.  This is used along with acupuncture for musculoskeletal problems.
