Whether you're a local or living out of state, you can now access a telecouselling session with Warwick.

Chinese Medical Nutrition

Chinese Medical Nutrition or what we refer to as Yang Sheng is the practice of prescribing ideal food, activities and daily life tasks specifically for the patient to best support their health and wellbeing. Consultations can include recipes, meal-plans, Chinese patent herbs, Chinese teas and daily lifestyle adjustments such as sleep patterns, exercise schedules and work/study schedules, where applicable.

Qigong & Meditation

Qigong and Meditation are an integral part of Chinese Medicine. With an holistic approach to healing, these techniques are essential for taking health and wellbeing. We will teach you simple ways you can use Qigong and Meditation for wellbeing in a safe, calm environment and tailor the lessons to exactly what you need on a one to one basis.

Holistic Counselling

Delivered by our experienced holistic counsellor, Áine, our transpersonal counselling aims to help you discover and explore your spiritual self.
Áine’s delivery of transpersonal or holistic counselling can traverse mind, body and spirit, if requested. With over 20 years of experience in using meditation and guided imagery, and more recently acquiring skills in some of the somatic and psycho-sensory modalities, you can feel assured you’re in safe hands.

Feedback We’ve Received

Here is what a few of our patients had to share

Very friendly, experienced, educational, efficient, helpful. Would fully recommend and go again!


Balance Point Acupuncture is a great little clinic. Therese is very gentle with her treatment approach. She knew how scared I was of getting needles and she was very patient and understanding. Therese offers a truly holistic approach. I highly recommend


Therese has given me inspiration to treat my body well and for me, her service has changed my attitude towards wellness. I’m finally listening to my body and embracing Therese’s gentle technique in acupuncture which has opened my mind and opened so many blockages in my body I feel safe sharing my imperfections with her.
