A sophisticated style of medical massage, used to treat muscular, joint and internal disorders

What is Bodywork?

Bodywork was developed long before acupuncture. Early humans realised manipulation of painful areas of the body helped to lessen pain and speed up healing. With the discovery of meridians and creation of acupuncture channel theory this bodywork was dramatically improved and refined.

Through the combination of Tui-Na (chinese massage) which literally translates as “push and grasp,” and Daoist bodywork we are able to treat many commonly experienced physical and emotional issues.


•   Physical pain
•   Emotional and psychological disorders
•   Musculoskeletal conditions 
•   Stress 
•   Trauma & Sports Injuries

•   And much more...



Our bodywork relies on the Daoist and traditional Chinese medical theory that energy and blood circulate through the meridians. Using the application of massage and manipulation techniques we seek to establish a more harmonious flow through these systems of channels and collaterals, allowing the body the naturally heal itself.

Tui-Na and Daoist Bodywork are non-invasive forms of massage because it uses light touch and rhythmic techniques which are performed without oil and through light clothing.

Our bodywork is especially well suited for the treatment of specific musculoskeletal disorders and chronic stress related disorders of the digestive, emotional/psychological, respiratory and reproductive systems.

  • I had weekly acupuncture over four weeks combined with Chinese herbs. The treatment itself was really relaxing, Darren has a very calming manner and immediately puts you at ease. I felt lovely for the rest of the evening following acupuncture and generally was a lot less stressed. The result, I am happy to say, is that I got pregnant that month. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and this has been an extremely easy pregnancy (I had a lot of bleeding with my last one). I would highly recommend Darren to anyone who is interested in fertility acupuncture. It was a lovely experience and, fortunately for me, a lovely outcome.

  • I cannot recommend Darren highly enough. He is caring, kind and professional. We were about to have an appointment for IVF but didnt need to! Without going into lots of personal details, Darren correctly located the problem without me having been specific and we conceived the next month & have a wonderful baby girl x.

  • My partner and I had been trying for a baby for just over a year and were starting to consider IVF. A friend recommended that we’d go and see Darren and I am very pleased to say that after 3 months I was pregnant with our baby boy now 18 months. We are so very grateful to Darren for helping us and would recommend him warmly to anybody.
