Deeply restorative Esoteric Acupuncture quiets the mind, and provides a space of absolute stillness and awareness.

‘Esoteric’ means hidden, ‘Acu’ in Latin means obelisk or temple and ‘Puncture’ means to pierce; therefore in Esoteric Acupuncture we are piercing the temple (physical body) to reach something hidden within.

Esoteric Acupuncture is a deeply restorative treatment that quiets the mind, provides a space of absolute stillness and lifts a person's level of awareness.

Very fine needles are gently inserted at specific points to balance and harmonise the seven main energy centres (or chakras) in the body. It is this balancing and harmonising of the seven main energy centres (chakras) in the body that differentiates Esoteric Acupuncture from traditional acupuncture.

These energy centres are recognised within the Hindu healing traditions as areas where emotions from past experiences are held, creating disturbances in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Balancing and harmonising these energy centres liberates energy from the past and initiates healing on all levels.

Esoteric Acupuncture emphasises wellness rather than merely addressing disease or physical imbalances. All Esoteric Acupuncture treatments work on harmonising the heart and strengthening the immune system.

In Chinese medicine all imbalances and diseases are believed to stem from an imbalanced heart (spirit).  The heart (spirit) governs the presence of love and compassion in our lives and gives birth to virtues such as tolerance, patience, non-judgement, empathy and forgiveness.  

Imbalances of the heart (spirit) create the destructive frequencies of fear and negative emotions that initiate disease.

Benefits of regular Esoteric Acupuncture sessions include:

  • a higher level of consciousness (awareness) in life, opening the mind to greater possibilities
  • enhanced ability to think creatively (“outside the “box”)
  • greater levels of insight (intuition)
  • greater ability to “let go” and move forward in life
  • enhanced ability to make decisions and direct energy
  • more meaningful relationships
  • greater connection to your unique purpose in life
  • feeling more empowered in life
  • inner peace and contentment
  • improved overall physical health.
