Relax, Restore, Revitalize TREATMENTS FOR LONG-TERM RELIEF Book Online About — HIMI HORIKOSHI Acupuncturist and Shiatsu massage therapist My name is Himi Horikoshi. I love what I do. Before I became acupuncturist, I studied Psychology at University in Japan. I also trained in Aikido (Martial Arts), which I practised for 13 years. I’m an active and social person who loves people. I’m passionate about helping people with attaining healthy and happy lives. After graduation I worked at Psychiatric Hospital as a case worker. I noticed that many patients had physical problems alongside mental issues. I quickly realised that I wanted to help my patients through touch, not just talk. I also wanted to focus on natural remedies. That’s where I found my true calling. I enrolled in a prestigious acupuncture school in Sendai, Japan, where I studied acupuncture, shiatsu and moxibustion for 3 years. I received National Qualification in 2001 and I have practiced my craft ever since both in Japan and New Zealand. Seeing my patients smile after our session makes me the happiest. I aim for my treatments to provide long term relief. Many of my clients say that they still feel fantastic the next day. Massage is like exercise, so I recommend you have a drink of water afterwards, and if you can, not to eat immediately before or after. " My hands are detectives, seeking out the aches, pains and stiffness in your muscles. I find great satisfaction in helping my clients feel relaxed and revitalised. " - Himi Horikoshi - Acupuncturist and Shiatsu massage therapist PHILOSOPHY My treatments are available in 30 or 60 minute sessions and use a combination of Shiatsu, Acupuncture and Reiki. Please enquire if you would like Moxibustion. Find out more CONTACT

Buy now Book now My technique is quite gentle. I choose level of stimulation based on patient’s body requirements.

Many of my clients say that they get up from the massage table feeling not much different, but they feel fantastic the next day. My massage is done fully clothed. I do recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing to my sessions. Both Acupuncture and Shiatsu focus on relieving pain and discomfort by correctly responding to tension before it potentially develops into a disease or causes any further damage. Both practices make you feel alive, refreshed and in harmony with life. ACUPUNCTURE SHIATSU Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing that focuses on improving the overall well being of the patient. A wide range of health problems are treated by the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine there are over 360 vital energy points along “meridians” that transmit energy throughout the body. Every point has specific therapeutic effects on the relevant organs. These points have been mapped out over the past five thousand years and have more recently been confirmed through electromagnetic research. Acupuncture takes a holistic view of a person with the body, emotions and spirit seen as being interconnected individual parts. Shiatsu originates from Japan and combines both Eastern and Western medicines. It’s a form of massage that utilises hands to detect all imbalances in the body. Shiatsu focuses on removing blockages that prevent our inner healing power to do its work. Essentially Shiatsu is designed to help you heal yourself. Shiatsu is sometimes referred to as “acupuncture without needles”. It is non-invasive, performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing, and uses soothing, kneading, pressing, tapping and stretching techniques. My massage is done fully clothed. I do recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing to my sessions. Book now MOXIBUSTION REIKI ENERGY WORK Moxibustion uses mogsa, a plant product made from mugwort (yomogi). The plant is burnt to provide thermal stimulation on the pressure points. It burns at a low temperature and is snuffed out before it gets too hot, giving a stimulus to these pressure points. It is an Oriental medicinal practice used to treat a variety of diseases without surgery or prescription drugs. Its goal is to enhance the natural healing power of our bodies. The treatment has no side effects. I’m also skilled in Reiki Energy Work, Second Degree. I often infuse principles of Reiki into my Shiatsu work to facilitate improvement of patient’s natural energy flow. Human bodies possess amazing healing power. My job is to clear way for this power to function at its highest potential.
