Whether pain is chronic (an on going condition) or acute (of short duration) as a result of injury, surgery or illness acupuncture can help. It quickly reduces pain and inflammation thereby reducing the need for drugs and speeds up the body’s natural healing process. We not only feel better physically but mentally and emotionally too.
Here are some general problems that acupuncture can treat:
- Back pain
- Neuropathic pain (nerve injury)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Disc herniation
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Tennis and golfers elbow
- Achilles tendonitis
Depending on the condition Nuala may use a single approach or use any number of treatments or combinations including acupuncture, heat treatment, patent herbs, massage, moxa, cupping , sound, and somatic re education of the muscles and nerves of the body.
SOMATIC NEUROMUSCULAR RE-EDUCATION is a series of very gentle yet profound movements, which will be taught in order to unwind old holding patterns that may have caused the problem and resulting pain or injury in the first place. As a result you will move with greater comfort and ease from the inside out. You will be shown how to maintain this with a program that is tailor made for your presenting complaint whether it is as a result of sports injury, surgery or illness.
If you want to improve your recovery time back to your favourite sport then the combination of acupuncture and somatic exercises will ensure a speedy recovery and help prevent further recurrence of injuries like repetitive strain, tennis or golfers elbow, lower back strain, neck pain, shoulder strain, knee pain, achilles tendonitis, muscle and tendon strains.
Reflexology is an ancient form of healing that has been rediscovered almost a hundred years ago. Twelve meridians start or end on the digits of either the hands or feet. By massaging or working on these reflex points the energies in these meridians or energy pathways can be cleared. Also known as zone therapy reflexologists believe that the human body is mirrored on the hands and feet. By massaging specific points on the hands and feet you are actually giving the body an internal massage helping to release blockages and discomfort within the body and bringing it to a natural state of balance and ease.
- The nervous system is soothed by relaxing all the nerve endings on the feet.
- Toxins are drawn down through the body and released through this form of foot massage.
- The lymphatic system is massaged and the flow improved
- Mental, emotional and physical tension is relieved

Aromatherapy Massage is the use of essential oils from what is basically plant hormones to heal and rebalance the body mentally, emotionally and physically. Through massage these oils, when diluted in a carrier oil, will be absorbed through the skin into the blood stream and the life force energy of the plants will help to bring the body into a natural state of homeostasis.
