Acupuncture literally means to ‘puncture with a needle’, but in reality this is only one form of treatment used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). To manage the range of conditions seen at the Heal Holistic clinci, be it ACC or private treatment, various therapies may be used in addition to acupuncture to get the best results possible. This may include using cups, Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage) or Moxabustion therapy.

TCM always seeks to treat the individual, not the condition. More specifically, TCM diagnosis looks at the signs and symptoms the client experiences, some not as obvious as you might think. As a result, needles may be placed at the location of injury but may also be placed on limbs or trunk of the body at relevant points according the TCM diagnosis. This is aimed at working towards a deeper and more profound healing treatment for the patient.

Acupuncture needles are incredibly fine, far more fine than the intravenous needles used by your doctor. It is common for people to report no uncomfortable sensation felt from the needles during the session. All needles are sterile and single use.

Please note that if you wish to book an ACC treatment, a pre-approved ACC claim number is required from a doctor/physio etc, generated in the last 12 months.

This impressive therapy relieves tensions and restrictions in the fascia (soft tissues) of the body and central nervous system using light therapeutic touch on the surface of the body. Balancing the sensitive cranio-sacral system of the body can bring about profound healing at all levels.

Whether having experienced emotional or physical trauma in the past, headaches or general high levels of stress, it’s a natural reaction of the body to tense and tighten up. This restriction can decrease the many signals the body sends, creating a lack of body awareness, more pain, muscle restriction, psychological and energetic disharmony.

You remain fully clothed as the practitioner uses light touch on the base of your spine, neck, abdomen and head.


From individuals such as the Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto, to ancient civilizations such as Egyptians, Ancient China and the Mayans, there has be much study and discussion on the energetic's of the body and how we unconsciously respond to our environment and other stimuli. Metaphysics is the the exploration of our reality, exploring a combination of subjects that include but not limited to Philosophy, Religion, Parapsychology, ESP, Meditation, Self-Help Studies, Positive Thinking, Life After Death, Transcendentalism, Mysticism and Reincarnation.  Emily uses her unique skill in reading the physical/emotional and Spiritual self to give a far more deeper and personalized treatment.  This treatment seeks to address the underlying cause of dis-ease, the state of imbalance that is rarely just physical in nature. A typical treatment can leave you relaxed, informed and often feeling lighter, in addition to its many other benefits.


Frequently asked questions

What should I expect after a treatment?

It is common to experience temporary tiredness, and a deep sense of relaxation immediatly after a treatment. On some occasions with specific conditions, you may feel a rush of energy that could last several hours to days. Other common general side effects experienced can include improved digestion and sleep plus a feeling of feeling generally lighter overall.

What treatment is involved in an appointment at Heal Holistic?

A treatment at Heal Holistic may involve more that one style of healing modality. This can change depending on your specfic wellbeing goal/s but generally most clients will recieve a mix of both acupuncture, cranio-sacral therapy and lifestyle/nutrition guidence. All treatments however are dependant on the clients preferences, as Emily is fully aware that not everyone is keen on the idea of acupucture but here at Heal Holisitc, acupuncture is only part of the healing skills that can be used. Your preference towards treatment styles and Emily's healing plan are dicussed on your first appointment.

Its important that you feel relaxed during a treatment so loose trackpants and top are ideal.

How many treatments do I need?

Health and healing is a very individuailsed process so this can vary from person to person. Some people may come once every few months for a general healing to adjust to the change of seasons. Others come with specific healing goals that could include weekly treatments or treatments that carry a more supportive role therefore once every few weeks for a while.

Can I bring children to the treatment?

Children are welcome to attend whilst the main adult is recieving a treatment, only if a second adult is present. The clinic is not a suitable nor same enviroment for young curious hands, and having a seond adult to attend the child/ren allows the patient to relax more fully. Infants are welcome.
