Medical Acupunture Technique & Benefits

Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.

It acts mainly by stimulating the nervous system, and can be used to treat musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial trigger point pain which it does by activating natural pain killing chemicals in the body. It can also restore the flow of ‘life energy’ or ‘qi’ which runs through the body in channels or ‘meridians’. By restoring the normal energy flow, it is said that the natural healing ability of the body is increased.

"Janice Clarke has treated me many times. I find her approach very professional and knowledgeable. As a triathlete and windsurfer, I have suffered injuries to my legs, shoulders and lower back and these injuries have resulted in pain over the years. Janice has managed to locate the exact areas of the injuries and her treatment has improved my mobility and reduced the pain. I definitely recommend Janice as an excellent Soft Tissue Sport Therapist."

– Julio Sanchez

"I compete in triathlons and therefore have regular massage sessions with Janice. Janice is very professional and provides a beneficial sports massage but she also goes into depth and looks at body movements and prescribes exercises and stretches that will help in both healing of injuries and to better performance in the future. I can recommend Janice to anyone for her sports massage therapy services".

– Tonie Stahlfest

"As an ultra and trail runner I know I can rely on Janice, who is an athlete herself, for a sport's massage to help keep me running injury free. We also trust Janice to treat our running holiday guests. We know that she will offer everyone the same professional service and high level of care. Janice takes the time to give a thorough examination before massage, taking into account specific training loads and previous injuries. Janice is highly recommended for her 5-star treatment".
