Do you suffer from insomnia?  Do you find it hard to fall asleep?  Waking up several times in the night and feeling tired all day?

Acupuncture and Shiatsu can make huge improvements by directly accessing points that can increase your dopamine levels the better you feel, the lower your stress levels.  Stress, anxiety mental health conditions and lifestyle factors all contribute to insomnia.  Shiatsu and Acupuncture help to readdress that balance to a healthier mind and body.

Recovery from surgery

Inflammation from surgery causes blockages in the flow of qi (chi) energy. Things dont feel like they should?  You may feel weak, cold, inflexible, numb or just really sore.  Shiatsu and Acupuncture will work energetically to reconnect you to your flow.  Balancing your elements to calm the trauma and put you back on your path to health and happiness.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a microsystem of traditional Chinese Acupuncture, it is great for most skin conditions, it can help make the skin look younger, smoother, and all round healthier by naturally increasing the collagen.  Unlike injectable procedures, facial acupuncture deals with the underlying health issues by accessing the organ meridians that flow through the face (stomach, gall bladder, large intestine, small intestine, san jiao and kidney.). A healthy body is a healthy face, a healthy face is a healthy mind.  

Migraines, Headaches, Tinnitus, Loss of Taste and or Smell?

All these conditions can be helped by Acupuncture, the movement of Qi and blood is the foundation of Shiatsu and Acupuncture.  If the Qi (Chi|) are moving then things start to improve.  Movement is always the best medicine.

Qi Gong

Qigong could be thought as a connective mind-body-spirit practice that seeks to improve the mental and physical wellbeing by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent.
There are many qigong styles, schools,
traditions, forms, and lineages.
I introduce people to the 18 Shibashi forms (first 3) Ba Duan Jin ( 8 Brocades) Hua Gong Qi Gong. I also use my background in Goju Ryu Karate to facilitate a soft practice of Kata for health as what could be thought of
as what is similar Tai Chi.

I went to see Steve only a week ago in the worst pain I’ve ever been in, I couldn’t even get out of a chair unaided. 3 sessions later and it’s already made the world of difference. My pain level has decreased dramatically and it’s a massive relief. Thank you Steve!
I have had an on going sciatic and piriformis issue in my right hip for almost a year. I previously saw another physiotherapist for about 5 months and although it helped, it was never cured and continued having on going issues. Some days were so bad I could barely walk other days I could run 10k with without much pain. I was recommened ZPTC by a friend who had the same issue and he said it was helping. So I booked an appointment and after just one session with Steve, I've had no issue since. With the combination of accupuncture and maniuplation of my hips (which were misaligned) he has completely made me pain free and can now run without any pain or fear of pain. I would highly recommend Steve, for pain relieve and for a sports massage, which I've just had and one of the best I've had in many years.

I have seen Steve a few times now. I’ve had long standing upper back/ shoulder and back pain and nothing in the past helped with this. After one session with Steve I felt a massive difference. I really appreciate the time he takes to understand the body’s energy and to use massage and other techniques such as acupuncture to alleviate the symptoms. As a doctor, I have a busy and stressful schedule and have found the weekly sessions extremely helpful. I will definitely be carrying on with these and am so grateful for the benefits I have felt from it so far! I definitely recommend this to anyone who has chronic pain
