Acupuncture helps stimulate the intrinsic self-healing resources that are within our bodies. On its own, our bodies create a wide range of natural pain relieving substances, natural anti-inflammatory chemistry, hormones, immune system enhancers etc that are meant to optimize our health. For many reasons however, this internal mechanism can get constrained over time. Acupuncture can us regain a stronger connection these resources by “tapping into” this healing potential.
Ultra fine disposable needles are placed into specific areas of the body known as acupuncture points (“acupoints`` for short). Each acupoint has its own specific function and its own specific depth at which the needle should be inserted (typically just few millimeters). Initially when the needles are inserted into the body a sensation may be felt for a few seconds, but that quickly dissipates. The needles can be left in there body for different lengths of time depending on the desired outcome. Overall, most clients find acupuncture to be relaxing for the mind, body and spirit and they leave a session feeling of sense of ease and wellbeing. All Acupuncturists at pōm Health and Wellness are registered.

Thai massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
The client wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor and may be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.
The practitioner’s legs and feet can be used to position the body or limbs of the client. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging. As part of the Thai Massage, the practitioner may pull the fingers, toes, ears, crack the knuckles, walk on the recipient's back, and move the recipient's body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the practitioner will adjust to fit the client.
