Kath is a doer not a talker. Your first consultation will be a brief conversation about what is going on and your presenting problem – but instead of talking about it, Kath will conduct a hands on full TCM assessment. This means palpating and massaging predominantly the head, neck shoulders and upper back. Lower back and legs assessment may be included, depending on your problem however the majority of cases the problem is stress-related tension in the upper body. By deeply massaging the areas of tension prior to acupuncture, Kath can determine the most suitable points to use. There are hundreds of acupuncture points, so it is important to be accurate to be effective. Cupping therapy is often used afterwards, the intensity of which is determined by your needs. Cupping can leave red marks, however this can be avoided by sliding the cups – the movement reduces blood pooling in one area. Cupping feels awesome. Imagine a reverse massage: instead of pushing and pressing, the muscles are pulled and grabbed, like kneading bread dough. Fine, stainless steel acupuncture needles are then inserted in 8 – 10 locations. The sensation of acupuncture is like having a hair removed (during insertion) followed by an electrical ‘zap’ feeling. While unusual, it is not painful. The needles are retained for approximately 20 minutes during which time you will feel profoundly calm, entering into a deep meditational state of relaxation. This is sometimes followed by euphoria – a pleasant feeling of elation. Kath has additional training in psychological strategies to help you cope with every day stresses in life. Using guided meditation techniques, in conjunction with physical therapies, she can help you achieve profound shifts in how you think, feel and see the world.
