Urban Sanctuary is located in the heart of West End Edinburgh, tucked away on a peaceful side street. Our mission is to provide holistic wellness services ranging from memberships to pay-what-you-can offerings.
Tight muscles? Pain? Insomnia? These are just a few of the examples why people visit an acupuncturist. You would also benefit from acupuncture just to promote your general health. Urban Sanctuary offers traditional acupuncture in Edinburgh.
Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. Acupuncture has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance.
New! Communal Acupuncture
In our community acupuncture sessions a maximum of 6 people are treated in the same large room. E.g. by treating 3 patients in an hour we can significantly repulse the price of one session.
This kind of treatment is very common in China. It is possible to offer this even with one acupuncturist because the needles take from 20 minutes to 60 minutes to work.
Yoga therapy focuses on the clients’ needs and condition. I, as a yoga therapist will look for ways to help my clients.
Reduce or manage their symptoms, improve their function and help them with their attitude in relation to their health conditions.
Aromatherapy is an alternative form of holistic therapy that uses essential oils to help improve and balance you both emotionally and physically, while helping you to take time out for yourself, to be mindful and to reconnect with yourself, even for a moment.
The aromas experienced through aromatherapy and essential oils have a dynamic effect on the mind and body.
Firstbeat Lifestyle assessments
Exclusively in Scotland and in Edinburgh! The First Beat Wellness analysis is a 3-day heart rate variability measurement that allows me to get a peek at what’s going on inside the client’s body:
how they are dealing with daily stress, what helps them recover, and how exercise fits into their lifestyle.
Coaching is aimed at helping clients meet goals in their personal or business lives by guiding them in the right direction.
In coaching we use series of individual sessions — which are sometimes carried out over a telephone or even via e-mails, as well as through face-to-face sessions — to help clients solve their problems and achieve ambitions.
Yoga Workshops & Classes
Over a decade of experience in yoga and especially our expertise is in YinYoga and Therapeutic yoga.
Urban Sanctuary offers personal sessions in both but also set workshops monthly with changing themes. These workshops will be 2-3hours in length and in small groups (max 6).
