Irena is a fully licensed and insured Massage Therapist and a final year BSc Acupuncture student at the NCA in York. She is also a member of the British Acupuncture Council.
Massage immensely helped Irena in her journey to fight stress and restore wellbeing. It has been preached by the “Father of Modern Medicine”, Hippocrates, for its undeniable and extensive benefits and is the oldest form of medicine known to man. This first-hand experience inspired Irena to complete a massage qualification alongside her training as an acupuncturist.
Irena uses the TCM diagnosis framework to create a unique treatment for each client. Alongside classic bodywork techniques and Acupressure, Irena often uses Gua Sha, Cupping or Moxibustion to facilitate best results.
In modern terms, cupping creates a myofascial decompression effect. It is a great tool to ease highly tensed muscle and connective tissue areas. Gua Sha intensifies microcirculation to the tissues and generates a therapeutic anti-inflammatory effect. Moxibustion used alongside acupressure stimulates blood circulation and triggers the body’s natural healing response.
Irena has a holistic approach to healing. She is particularly interested in lifestyle changes that restore the health process.
Seemingly small changes to how we go about our day can result in outstanding results in stress reduction. Irena has spent years studying and testing them in real-life scenarios. She is very happy to incorporate her knowledge into the treatment plan for those interested in accelerating treatment results.
