Acupuncture & Shiatsu


'Daimaru' is the Japanese word for 'great circle'. Here, it represents the great circle or 'cycle' of the body's own healing energy, or Ch'i in Chinese.

I hope this site will provide you with an idea of the capabilities and the extent of Acupuncture and other oriental healing therapies.

I look forward to meeting you and to being of assistance in restoring or maintaining your Ch'i - your healing energy – be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.



We have many systems working in our body such as vascular, nervous, endocrine etc. and a most important energy system which activates and energises all these functions. A blockage or stagnation of this energy (Ch'i / 'Qi' – in Chinese, 'Ki' - in Japanese) throughout the body will lead to disharmony and poor organ functioning. The causes for this can be biological, physical, emotional (stress, anger, depression, sadness, worry, anxiety, fatigue, overwork just to mention a few), mental or spiritual. Chinese medicine discovered over 4000 years ago that by inserting very fine needles in special points along specific energy pathways (called meridians) in the body, it is possible to release any blockage or stagnation in this vital energy system and restore health throughout the entire body resulting in optimum health. It also creates the optimum environment for conception.


It can help GREATLY with:

A Clients Comment

"I had been trying for months to get rid of a low back pain that was preventing me from enjoying my game of golf but nothing seemed to work. Then I heard about Mari from a friend and how acupuncture had greatly helped their sciatica. I decided to try it and I have to say that I am very happy with the results. My back has really improved and I am feeling much better in general. Mari also gave me a set of exercises to improve my back strength and prevent further back problems in the future. I do these for a couple of minutes every day and my back feels much more flexible. Unexpectedly, I also feel less stressed and seem to have more energy since beginning the treatment."
