Oriental Therapies are becoming one of the most popular alternative medicine modalities used by everyday Australians who wish to stay healthy and maintain good health proactively.
At Root & Branch we use over 400 body points to stimulate blood circulation, which helps the body maintain its own natural healing mechanisms.
Calming the mind to relieving stress, managing fatigue and muscle strain are just some of the things people commonly seek help for. Every person is treated uniquely with a custom made treatment plan to match the person’s constitution, the symptoms and the season.
Acupuncture uses super fine needles in conjunction with oriental therapies including cupping, scraping and herbal medicine is available to compliment the treatment applied in the clinic – between appointments.
Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning finger pressure, often also referred to as acupressure (acupuncture without needles.) Shiatsu is a Japanese style of traditional massage therapy, which includes various techniques; acupressure points in conjunction with massage and gentle stretches to calm the mind and body.
Some people find that regular weekly or bi-weekly treatments are ideal for them, while others benefit from less frequent treatments such as every 4 or 6 weeks to proactively maintain wellbeing.
You will leave the clinic feeling uplifted after even the first session, however most people find that they need several treatments to see a significant improvement in their symptoms; and they then typically follow up with periodical maintenance, or importantly around the change of seasons when we become vulnerable to the weather changes.
