A healing art used for over 2500 years, originating in China and now practiced across the world.

Very fine, sterile, single use needles activate the energy flow at specific acupoints to rebalance the body and promote optimal health. The human electrical channel the energy flows through is called a Meridian.
'Meridians are pathways that connect the acupressure points to each other as well as to the internal organs. Just as blood vessels carry the blood that nourishes the body physically, the meridians are distinct channels that circulate electrical energy throughout the body. They are thought to be part of a master communications system of universal life energy...' Acupressure.com
Acupressure (or Tui-na massage), is an ancient healing art developed in Asia 5000 years ago that uses deep tissue style massage to the same theoretical system as acupuncture but without needles. Using the sensitivity of the hand, fingers gradually press key points to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities.
Acupressure Therapy is effective in relieving stress related ailments, and is ideal for promoting wellbeing, and boosting the immune system as part of a preventative health care approach. There are special routines for cosmetic acupressure that use less pressure and aim to increase blood circulation in the local area, clearing toxins and rejuvenating the complexion.
Auricular acupuncture therapy £15-£25
In TCM we see the ear as a microcosm of our entire being. The human ear has a likeness to an upside down embryo, so we can diagnose ailments in the body simply by looking at the ear closely. From this we can fit 'ear seeds', which are actual seeds inside a plaster, and use these to press on acu-points in the ear so that you can receive auricular acupuncture as you go about your day. This is an inexpensive treatment that is a bit of a party trick for us here because people are astounded by how effective such a simple remedy like this is.
bonework 60 minutes (1-2-1) £60
'Accidents and injuries can disorganize the functional relationships between bones. Bones can get stuck together out of place causing chronic dysfunction. These bone- to-bone adhesions are at the level of the fascia of the periosteum. In Bone Rolling, deep manual pressure is precisely directed through the periosteal adhesion to release the stuck bones. The bones are now free to move, or “roll” into a better relationship within structure of the fascial web.'

cupping 15/30/60 minutes £10-£35
One of the oldest forms of medicine in the world, Cupping is used to draw out dried blood and toxins from deep within the muscle, aiding circulation. When blood or Qi (Chi) stagnates, the Chinese see it as a leading cause of disease in the body. We use cupping to re-circulate energy, increase blood and oxygen flow, release muscle tension, ease pain, improve movement, and support recovery.
Small suction cups are placed over the surface area of the back, with the aim of drawing out stagnant blood and boosting blood circulation. Where there are prominent dark marks is where we see there to be stagnation (blockage).
Deep Tissue Massage 30/60 minutes £25-£35

fascial release 60 minutes (121) £60
Fascia or connective tissues can hold onto physical and emotional trauma: they have a memory much like the mind.
During Fascial unwinding the therapist can bring about great change by releasing these pulls within the body. We can 'release' fascial restriction by encouraging the body or parts of the body to move to areas of ease. The therapist works as a facilitator inducing the parasympathetic system; paying attention to the state of the autonomic nervous system, creating unusual sensations with subtle stimulation.
hypnotherapy (121 & Community thursdays)

Scar release work 60 minutes (1-2-1) £60
Scar healing is a ground breaking new therapy at Tiger Boe.
Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of connective tissue. Scar tissue is a very dense fascia with unique properties. Scar Work uses light massage techniques to stimulate collagen production and smooth our bumps. Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement.
Scar tissue quality changes quickly and easily. Lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots and strings in the tissue rapidly smooth out into a three dimensional fascial web. The work starts with the surface layers and goes into the far reaches of the scar including work with any involved viscera.

zero balancing 30/60 minutes
Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body. Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment. A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization.
Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life. Zero Balancing can also be helpful with specific goals such as relief from back pain, improving concentration or sleep, releasing unwanted stress, eliminating old behaviour patterns, or boosting well-being. Zero Balancing works in conjunction with medical therapy and is not a substitute for it.
