Acupuncture

Acupuncture, uses very thin sterile, stainless steel needles inserted at specific points to modify the flow of ‘chi’ or vital life energy in the body. These points govern energy pathways called meridians. Different meridians feed energy to different organs and areas of the body. By locating the meridian that feeds a problem area, the flow of energy is stimulated or decongested often delivering instant relief.  Acupuncture is an incredible way to restore health and is particularly well known for relieving pain.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a skilful, no-invasive hands-on therapy that re-kindles the body’s innate capacity for self-repair.

Injuries, illnesses, traumas and continual daily stresses of life left untreated, can often restrict function and create problems over time, hindering our full expression and enjoyment of life. These effects can be physical, mental and emotional.

People come to Priya for conditions ranging from insomnia to low energy, pain, digestive complaints, circulation, injuries, chronic and acute conditions as well as disease prevention and optimising wellbeing. Programmes to reset your nervous system, increase immunity and general wellbeing interventions are also offered. In addition, proactive ageing interventions with facial acupuncture are also popular.

Treatments range from 60 minutes to 90 minutes depending on what is required.

FAQs

Q Does acupuncture hurt?

Inserting the needles does not hurt, it's not like having an injection as the needles are extremely thin and they go into the meridian lines and not into the veins. When energy moves through the meridians you can sometimes feel a little buzz or a static feeling. It is unusual to feel any more pain than that.

Exceptional practitioner.
5.0.0

As a psychologist working within an interdisciplinary framework, I have over the years carefully vetted many practitioners that I can confidently refer to. Priya is a gifted and trusted colleague. We have worked collaboratively over the years, with a wide range of clients and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Exceptional
5.0.0

I have been a client of Priya’s since she began her practice. I thought she was the best then…as time has gone by, she has become even better. As a fellow practitioner, I am discerning about whom I take my body and energy to. Priya is accurate, straight to the point, gentle, focused and an exceptional acupuncturist and cranio-sacral therapist.

Priya is amazing. This was my first visit while here in Capetown on business. She is so intuitive, patient and caring and I truly felt understood. The treatment was exactly what I needed and very well priced. I’ll be back every time I’m in Cape Town.

This was not a treat for me it was a necessity!
5.0.0

I came with a full bucket of aches and pains , which I was trying to self heal ( but failed )the minute I stepped into Priyas magical sanctuary a feeling of healing had already begun! I had questions and concerns and Priya answered and assured me with such patience , wisdom and knowledge that I knew I was getting my own scripted treatment . 2 hours had flown in 5 minutes yet I felt I had been resting for hours . I’ve completed my 2nd treatment and I hope I can still find an excuse to see submerge myself with more treatments – oh the wafts of moxa just complete this total healing experience

I am personally grateful for the wonderful, loving and professional attention that I always experience with Priya. She has a soft and skillful hand, and goes out of her way to help and answer any questions, to feel seen, and understood. I fully recommend Priya for acupuncture treatments and advice for the various needs and coping of everyday challenges and stressful situations that come our way.

Priya is pure magic
5.0.0

I’ve been going to Priya for over 7 years now. She’s seen me put my back out from sitting too long, sneezing my neck out of alignment, and even a twerk injury. Whenever I feel any stagnation in my body, Priya is my first port of call. She never judges me and advises me with an exercise or two to self-heal. Being in Priya’s presence is nothing short of magical. She talks to my energy in a way I haven’t found in any other practitioner. I highly recommend Priya for her gentle and effective therapy.

I started having sessions with Priya after a personal tragedy. She is kind and caring and held a peaceful, non judgemental space for my healing. We also worked on other areas of my health and every-time I felt great results. Her knowledge and wisdom combined with her professionalism makes each session unique and special. I would highly recommend her sessions.

Truly healing, holding, envigorating
5.0.0

It’s too difficult to sum up the experience with Priya in a small paragraph – a consummate professional with such an incredible depth of knowledge… I found the therapy incredibly effective and the the experience, from meeting and talking to Priya until leaving her office, a soothing and unknotting tonic for the body, mind and being. It feels like a privilege to have access to this modality, and a person such as Priya, who is teeming with passion for the work and a sincerity which is unparalleled. Highly recommended.

Ultimate Healing
5.0.0

My healing process has been a multi-faceted journey, but with Priya there has been a radical shift. Priya is a highly intuitive healer with a deep understanding of her modalities. She is able to see the truth beyond and behind your words and is able to recognize where energy is stuck or overactive in the body and emotion. She works with her knowledge of the meridians of the physical body as well as that of the more subtle bodies with wisdom and grace. She is present, compassionate, kind, trusting and trustworthy, and holds a beautiful sacred space for healing. I simply adore Priya and my gratitude to her is endless. I leave her feeling fully seen, held, nurtured and nourished, and more pain free.

Amazing acupuncturist
5.3

I’ve been to quite a few acupuncturist in my time but Priya was undoubtedly the only one that’s really on top of her game. Thoughtful, kind and considerate. She really knows her art, and you can see that in the results. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of healing, physically or mentally. They are acupuncturists and then there is Priya Vassen. Amazing!

I can not recommend Priya enough. Besides her extremely professional work ethic and incredible knowledge, she has intuition and connection deeper than most healers I have experienced. She knows what she is doing and I always feel 100% safe and that I will leave her practice feeling better than when I entered.

Priya holds sacred space like no other. She is always so perceptive of what’s going on for me even before I’ve opened my mouth. Her calm and grounded demeanor combined with her gentle technique, allows my nervous system to settle so I can really get the most out of her sessions. I’d highly recommend Priya to anyone looking for some deep and transformative R&R.

Having known Priya for many years, worked along side her as a Shiatsu Practitioner, I have great admiration for her skill and dedication to her art.

I can’t recommend Priya highly enough. I decided to try accupuncture following by bout with Covid in December 2021. It brought back my childhood asthma and I’d read that accupuncture could help. Aside from being professional and amazing at her practice, Priya is deeply intuitive and holds a space that is contained, safe and loving.
