They are professional and I have been twice now and have had a great experience and massage. I have referred several friends.
-------- Cindy S.
“My new favourite place! I have seen both Mary and Richie for massage and it was amazing! My back is in a right mess but each time I visit my pain is relieved immensely. I have also just started seeing Dora for acupuncture and cupping and I am very impressed. I can’t wait for my next appointment!
Highly recommend heading down and booking yourself in with the team at Elemental therapies!“”
-------- Liana M.
“John’s amazing! Though I’m originally from China, I never tried Acupuncture before coz I m that kind of people who’re scared of needles. But this time I got very serious pain in my right arm because of 12-hours work and John gave me a session of acupuncture just for an hour. I feel a totally new person now. I don’t have any pain in my arms. I was new to Acupuncture too now I found myself drown to acupuncture and foresee continuing to have John to do pain management so I can quit panadol. Lol”
-------- Kayla W.
"I had a very long-standing cough and phlegm and had tried Western and herbal treatments. Dora knew exactly what to do and sorted it out very quickly with a mix of various traditional Chinese medicine treatments. She is the real deal. If you are wondering, stop wondering. Just go. You will be in good hands."
-------- Jennifer S.
"Had Acupuncture treatment today... I could feel EVERY KNOT being worked on in my shoulders. Which i had mentioned was my problem spot. Loved the heat lamp to warm up before the treatment started. Totally worth it!!"
“I am so happy I found this place. John was amazing and diagnosed my injuries so well. I feel better already and have booked again. Top notch service.”
Amazing massage and acupuncture, staff were so polite and considerate. Will definitely be going back!
