Release, Relax, Unwind




Chinese Medicine adopts a holistic approach to the patient. To treat you effectively, your acupuncturist will first take your personal case history, to understand more about your personality, character, habits and way of life before creating a unique tailored treatment plan to help you become whole again.

Daria undertook a four-year course in Chinese Medicine at the world famous College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, UK.

Seasonal tip

Earth element’s time begins when there is that harvest feeling in the air and berries start ripening on my gooseberry bushes in the garden. I can only describe it as a sense of fulfilment in the nature, the fields become heavy with the harvest, birds are busy feeding their young and helping them out of the nest to explore the great big world.

Sweet flavours, in small amounts, favour the Spleen and Stomach (sadly, we are not talking about ice cream).  Sweet foods that strengthen the Earth element include whole grains, like millet, rice, and root vegetables, such as yams, sweet potatoes and carrots. Enjoy the sweet fruits and vegetables that are in season and available in the late summer harvest.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

- Lao Tzu 


Using the antient art of Chinese Medicine combined with 5 Elements theory developed in the UK we are hoping to achieve our ultimate goal of bringing the "whole you" back.


Facial treatment using acupuncture to enhance your skin naturally. It can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, boost collagen production through an inflammatory effect, lift sagging skin, boost blood circulation and generally boost the condition of the skin.



Cupping can be used for relieving the muscular tension, moving "stuck" pathogens or invigorating your blood. This technique involves placing glass cups on your body by creating the suction and may leave characteristic circular marks (as seen on the backs of some Olympic sportsmen).


A set of four treatments designed to help rid yourself of tobacco addiction. Involves ear acupuncture and stimulation with weak electric current.
