Taking good care of you… Lorna Jackson

For our care edition we headed out to meet four wonderful women who care for a living.

Lorna Jackson

Owner, Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist at Health Point Clinic

“I use traditional acupuncture and massage to rapidly release myofascial adhesions, elongate hypertonic muscles and increase blood flow to injured tissues. My patients come to me for pain relief, or to help improve sleep and reduce stress. I also help support patients during fertility treatment and throughout pregnancy.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of ultra-fine single use sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body. Acupuncture is a pain free, relaxing treatment so much so that many patients fall asleep on the treatment bench. Although many come in with a specific condition or area of focus, lots of people also pop in to just relax and switch off after a busy day, as acupuncture is a great way to calm the nervous system down. With relaxing music, a lavender eye bag and a cup of tea after to recoup, patients float out of the treatment room. Although acupuncture is a medical treatment it generally feels more like a relaxing minibreak without the passport.”
