Wu Wei  =  Go with the flow

wu wei river

‘Wu Wei’ is one of Taoism’s most important concepts and roughly translates as action of non-action. A flower does not have to ‘think’ how to blossom; it is just part of its nature!

“Our mission at Wu Wei Health is to help people live longer, healthier and happier lives by manifesting positive mind, body and spiritual balance via our holistic individualised treatment plans.  We are committed to providing the highest level of educational knowledge and skills, through a broad range of therapy options and activities, to achieve personal and community healthcare goals.”

Wu Wei Health will facilitate your journey as you navigate toward great health and wellness with the use of our individually tailored services: Traditional Acupuncture, Esoteric Acupuncture, Tuina Massage, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Reiki.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong are renowned for promoting Health and Longevity and form the very foundation of Wu Wei Health’s treatment principles and philosophy; by reflecting the balance of Yin and Yang in nature and allowing oneself to ‘Go with the flow.’
