Caroline's interest in Natural Therapies developed in Canada, where she trained as a Massage Therapist and Reflexologist. On her return to Britain, Caroline discovered the therapeutic benefits of Aromatherapy. Caroline trained at the Shirley Price College of Aromatherapy, which is the largest Aromatherapy training organisation in the world, where she obtained her certificate after a comprehensive training course. Caroline is committed to personal growth and development and is continually updating her education. Having qualified as a Bowen Practitioner, Caroline went on to train as an Acupuncturist at the South West College of Oriental Medicine, completing her training at the University of Shanghai in China.

What is acupuncture?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a way of restoring health, developed thousands of years ago, by studying the law of nature. These ancient doctors knew then, that what we are is energy. This vital energy or Qi (pronounced chee) circulates in pathways that are connected with our internal organs and the surface of the body. When Qi flows freely, there is inner harmony and balance and we feel healthy. Disrupt this process and we will experience pain & Disease.A pathway may become blocked which then will have a knock on effect on other channels and organs.

Acupuncture is one way of tapping into or manipulating this energy - by inserting needles into specific points where the energy is most accessible - we can balance, unblock or strengthen Qi. Out of hundreds of these little 'whirlpools' of energy, normally just over a handful is selected, and these are according to the individual and the pattern of disease.

What happens during treatment?

At your first session a diagnosis is carried out through a detailed consultation covering every aspect of your health, body and mind. Your tongue & pulse will be observed, as these are very important signs in Traditional Chinese Medicine. If it is decided that acupuncture is the best treatment for you - a point combination will be selected and then needled.

Today's acupuncture needles are extremely fine, so treatment is usually almost painless. You may feel a dull ache or a tingling sensation as the needle comes into contact with the Qi. The needles are normally left in for about 20 minutes before taken out, (it is not unusual for patients to fall asleep during this time). The needles come in sterile blister packs and are thrown away after a single use - this eliminates the spread of infection.

Sometimes moxibustion is required - the warming of acupuncture points through the use of smouldering herbs. Other methods of stimulation include Cupping, to remove pain and stiffness. A glass cup is moved over the surface of the skin using heat & suction. Needles can also be stimulated with small electrical currents to enhance the benefit of the treatment.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the controlled use of natural aromatic oils, known as Essential oils, which are non-oily, volatile (evaporate easily) substances, extracted by various methods, from flowers, leaves, barks, roots, berries and fruits.

What is The Bowen Therapy?

The Bowen Therapy is a series of gentle moves on the muscle and connective tissue along the whole body, using the thumb and fingers. There is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and the treatment is very gentle, subtle and relaxing. The non-invasiveness and gentleness are what makes The Bowen Therapy so unique.
