Acupuncture is a medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions.

Lymphatic DrainageLymphatic drainage works to help re-circulate body fluids, remove toxins from the body, stimulate functioning of the immune system, and balance the autonomic nervous system. In our clinic we will use a tiny machine which is that ultrasonic devices achieve this through what are called micro vibrations. These micro vibrations act as a micro-massage for the skin, which is said to promote detoxification and lymph drainage. With increased removal of waste in the skin, it is easier for topically applied products to penetrate and be absorbed by the skin.

A baby’s physical health, mental health and development are all impacted by infant massage. According to Asian Nursing Research Journal (2012), appropriate stimulation of the baby’s sense of touch positively affects psychosocial development and encourages attachment between a mother and her baby. Infant massage can assist with weight gain and overall growth, as well as the length of time a baby sleeps and how soundly they sleep. It can be used to calm a colicky baby by reducing stress, deepen the bond with parent by releasing the hormone oxytocin (the feel good hormone) and decreasing the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in both the baby and caregiver. Massage can also aid with the development of a baby’s motor skills.
