Our Services

We're Passionate About Wellbeing

Our acupuncturist, Claire Solomon, is very experienced in delivering acupuncture treatment. She is trained in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture. She has a strong interest in women’s health, using acupuncture to help balance women throughout whatever phase or stage they are in – whether it be menstrual issues, fertility, pregnancy or menopause.

 

Claire also loves using this wonderful modality to help men and women with other health concerns, such as digestion, headaches, insomnia or musculoskeletal aches and pains.

Her passion for acupuncture developed through personal use with fertility and Claire has since embraced the holistic nature of Chinese medicine in a desire to help others with their health and wellbeing.

Claire holds a Bachelors in Health Science (Acupuncture), is a member of Acupuncture NZ (a New Zealand register of acupuncturists) and is a registered ACC provider.

We Offer A Wide Range of Services

Acupuncture

Ten or so extremely thin, single-use pre-sterilised needles may be inserted into the body at specific acupuncture points. This helps Qi and blood flow smoothly around the body.

Gua sha

Rose quartz boards are rubbed on the skin to release any accumulations or stagnations. This can help with muscle pain and is a wonderful way to invigorate the face (like a massage).

Cupping

Cups can be applied to the body to help relieve tension or stagnation. They create a vacuum, sucking up the skin, and can be left in one place or moved around to give a relaxing massage effect.

Massage (Tuina)

The Chinese style of massage. There are many different hand techniques to help relieve muscle pain, as well as help other complaints.

Moxibustion (Moxa)

Moxa (a herb called Ai Ye or Mugwort) is burnt to create heat. This heat is applied indirectly over acupuncture points to help with healing. It is generally found to be very warming and relaxing.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

Chinese Medicine needs to be supported by a good diet and lifestyle, otherwise symptoms are likely to reoccur. Therefore advice can be given in these areas when beneficial.

Initial consultation and treatment (1 hour)

Follow up_1-8.png
  • We will have a comprehensive discussion about your health history and main health concern/s. Some questions may seem unrelated, but when treating with traditional Chinese medicine, we look at the body as a whole. Every body is unique, so every treatment will be tailored to you.

  • We will complete examinations such as looking at your tongue and taking your pulse, as well as taking your blood pressure and any physical tests necessary.

  • A 20-30 minute acupuncture treatment will be given.

  • Wear loose comfortable clothing where possible, as we may need to insert needles at a variety of points around your body, not just where you are experiencing the symptom/s.

  • Please bring any reports or scans relevant to your health concern with you.
