Relief from pain or stress
Two Sheffield Clinics: in Ecclesall and in Ecclesfield
I offer deep tissue massage to ease muscular tension and promote healthy circulation and acupuncture to relieve pain and discomfort. Both treatments can provide relief for both physical and emotional stress.
Treatments are always individually tailored to respond to your needs, and can involve one or both therapies, depending on what is most effective and on your preference.
As part of deep tissue massage and acupuncture, I use dry and sliding cupping as well as gua sha.
A recent study lists acupuncture as having an effect on 117 different conditions: Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association research.

As a British Acupuncture Council acupuncturist, many health insurance schemes will pay for my acupuncture treatments. I often combine deep tissue massage with acupuncture, which could also qualify. Please ask me for further details if this interests you.
Deep Tissue Massage
I practise Tui na deep tissue massage, a holistic, therapeutic, deep tissue massage style based on the principles of Chinese medicine.
Tui na is extremely flexible; I use it for all sorts of problems, including those that you might seek sports massage, other styles of deep tissue massage, holistic massage or any other remedial therapeutic massage for. When tension is relieved, your whole body and mind can relax.

acupuncture stimulates your body to produce its own natural pain-killing chemicals. Correct placement of the needles guides these chemicals to or through an area affected by pain. This can help areas deeper than the muscle or skin layer needled.

Tai Chi (full name Tai Chi Chuan or Tai Ji Quan) is a Chinese martial art based on the principle that softness overcomes hardness. When you are loose and relaxed, you can use your whole body in a unified way. Tai Chi involves meditation on movement, simultaneously developing balance, relaxation, coordination and looseness, as well as understanding, flexibility and resilience.
The BBC programme 'Trust Me, I'm a Doctor' recently looked at the benefits of tai chi to certain aspects of health: Trust Me, I'm A Doctor

Abdominal massage is a method of directly relieving pressures on the organs and soft tissues below the ribs, the organs primarily associated with digestion and fertility, but which have an affect on all of your physical processes.
This style of massage is about freeing tissues up so that a natural flow in restored. It can have a profound impact on your experience of life.
There is often a larger area of tension if your core has become imbalanced. I always therefore combine abdominal massage with massage to the lower back, and the thighs, the adjacent areas.
