A modern approach to traditional Chinese medicine
With a background in body work Sage utilises remedial massage, together with hot stone therapy, to enhance the efficacy of acupuncture. Herbal medicine is also prescribed to complement the acupuncture or as a standalone treatment for the treatment of disease.
This means with every treatment Sage lays the foundation of his acupuncture with remedial massage, hot stones, therapeutic oils and cupping (if required) with needles specifically placed according to Chinese medical theory derived from an in depth consultation utilising tongue and pulse examination. Herbal medicine is prescribed after your acupuncture.
Appointments are 45 mins, with every treatment given by Sage in a single treatment room so you won't be left alone in a second room unattended.
