Acupuncture is an ancient healing system, involving the insertion of fine, stainless steel needles into specific points on the body to gently stimulate the flow of Qi (energy).
Acupuncture has a quieting effect on the Shen (mind), allowing space for our thoughts to subside and our body to enter a deeply relaxed and coherent state. It is in this state that our bodies re-establish equilibrium (balance).
Acupuncture stimulates the bodies innate self-regulating and self-healing mechanisms.

"It is only through the elevation of consciousness that we can discover Who we Really Are and our unique purpose for being here".
“Esoteric” means hidden, “Acu” in Latin means temple and “Puncture” means pierce; therefore in Esoteric Acupuncture we are piercing the temple (physical body) to reach something hidden within.
Esoteric Acupuncture treatments are deeply restorative, bringing the body-mind into a state of stillness (meditation).
Very fine needles are inserted at specific points to balance and harmonise the seven main energy centres (or chakras) in the body.
In the Indian energy-healing system, these chakras store emotions from our past experiences, creating disturbances in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Balancing and harmonising these energy centres triggers the release of stored energy, initiating healing on all levels.
All Esoteric Acupuncture treatments work on harmonising the heart (“xin”), spirit (“shen”) and strengthening the energy (“qi”), creating greater levels of awareness, direction and purpose in life.
