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.
Oriental therapies have a rich history.
At Root & Branch we use over 400 body pressure points to stimulate blood circulation, which helps the body maintain its own natural healing mechanisms.
Acupuncture uses super fine needles in conjunction with oriental therapies including cupping, scraping and herbal medicine to compliment the treatment applied in the clinic - herbs prolong therapeutic actions between appointments.
Shiatsu is a Japanese style of traditional massage therapy, which includes various techniques; trigger points in conjunction with massage and gentle stretches which calm the mind and physical body. Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning finger pressure, often also referred to as acupressure or 'acupuncture... without needles.'
Calming the mind to relieve stress, managing fatigue and muscle strain are just some of the things for which people commonly seek help. Every person is treated uniquely with a custom made treatment plan to match the person's constitution, symptoms and the season.
You will leave the clinic feeling uplifted even after the first session, however most people find that they need several treatments to see a significant improvement in their symptoms.
Our practitioners – Mark & Masa, are happy to see you as often or as little as you like; we can give you an honest quote on expected treatment time, frequency of treatments or herbal prescriptions. You can see us occasionally for health maintenance until an issue is resolved or periodically with flare-ups, it’s totally up to you. Many people find that they are vulnerable to illness around the change of seasons, so we usually suggest people consider rebooking then.
Our practitioners are both passionate about their given modalities, they regularly commit to learning new techniques, participate in online courses and attend industry events.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
