An ancient and holistic therapy, cupping works to create a vacuum by using suction cups on different points of the body. The suction draws the skin up in the cups, relieving the congestion and blockages and bringing deep-seated toxins towards the surface for elimination. This improves the flow of vital forces and fluids in the body and is regarded as the best way to detox. Specific points are chosen according to the concern of the person whether it be for detoxification or for treatment for a long list of concerns, including migraines, digestive problems, disc problems, general aches and pains, rheumatism, cellulite and much more.
Derived from the Arabic word for Greece “Al Yunan”, Unani medicine is based on the teachings of Hippocrates. This ancient system of medicine was first pioneered in Greece but has since been developed by Arabs to become an advanced medical science, with foundations from ancient times. Using ancient herbal formulas, Unani works to treat various illnesses in a natural way. This long-established healing method has stood the test of time and is now recognised as a traditional and alternative system of medicine by the World Health Organisation.
Acupressure is an ancient art of healing, in which fingertips are used to gradually apply pressure onto key healing points. This ancient therapy is often used to release tension, promote circulation and improve lymphatic drainage, all whilst stimulating the body’s self-defense abilities. Using the hundreds of pressure points all over the body, Dr. Benazir will work to effectively manipulate the “flow of chi” which become congested to cause health problems. Acupressure is proven effective to treat a range of health problems including those relating to anxiety and depression, general pain, lymphatic drainage, organ function, and more.
