Stress - Anxiety and Depression

Stress can impact on our daily life by affecting our general health and wellbeing over time. Acupuncture with western medicine may give great improvement for people suffering with anxiety or other emotional disorders using balance method and shen harmonisation. It may also help addictive patterns. We also use the NADA protocol for ear and body acupuncture for these disorders.

Weight Loss program

Initially, we’ll carry out a comprehensive analysis of your body systems to determine which internal organs need harmonizing and then combine ear and body acupuncture weekly, herbal and homeopathic medicine to improve your digestion and reduce stress, a mindset adjustment and last but not least a high protein, low fat and carbohydrate food program to get your weight moving in the right direction.

You can easily lose 3-5kg or more in the first week and then a 0.5-1kg a week until you have reached your goal body size if you stick to the behealthy food program. Naturally the weight loss will vary for every individual.
