HOT NEEDLE ACUPUNCTURE Hot needle acupuncture originated in China approximately 3,000 years ago, and was originally used to treat arthritis. The world renowned Dr. Puren developed and widely used this treatment throughout his more than 60 years of acupuncture practice. The hot needle technique has been proven to be highly successful in treating arthritis, tendonitis, sports injuries, scar tissues, migraines, headaches, and numbness, as well as other difficult diseases and conditions, such as stroke.

Hot needle therapy is a safe, fast and effective healing art. It stimulates the body to create an enormous 'young' energy, and releases natural chemicals inside the body to irrigate, nourish and heal the tissues, and improve the targeted organ's functions.

BLEEDING THERAPY Bleeding therapy directly unblocks the energy river of the body. It is applied on specific points to remove toxins, and to release pain, swelling or itchiness from the area, allowing the body to balance itself and recovery quickly.

ACUPRESSURE THERAPY This is a Chinese medical massage therapy which is comprised of acupuncture points and energy channelling to promote healthy 'Qi' flow and healthy organ function in order to prevent and cure diseases.

CUPPING A simple and traditional natural healing technique used to balance the body, in order to promote healing. The suction coaxes blood and fluids to the treated area which, in turn, releases tight or painful muscles. Cups are usually left on between 5 and 10 minutes. After cupping, the skin may be temporarily reddened, raised, or bruised, which is part of the healing process. However, it is not painful and usually only lasts up to 1 week.
