The Dermatology and Hair Institute offers an integrative approach to your health, each patient is an individual and requires a holistic approach to treatment. We combine all the below to best cater for all your individual needs for the optimal outcome.

Cranio Sacral Therapy

Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle form of bodywork which evaluates and improves the activity of the cranio sacral system. Anatomically, this system includes the brain and cord, surrounding fluids and their membranes, the bones of the cranium and spine, and the nerves emanating from them. Physiologically, the cranio sacral system is a whole body of intricate pathways of nervous tissues and their hormones.

The cranio sacral system has its own rhythmic fluctuations regulating the flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) from the sacrum to the cranium. We call it ‘cranial rhythm’, cranial rhythm has an effect and influences the joints, organs, glands, blood circulation, respiration, and indeed every cell of the body.

Therapeutic reflexology

Each session is a pleasurable experience and patients will feel relaxed. If the reflex is sensitive when worked, it can result in a painful sensation on the feet. When certain reflexes are worked, a sensation might be felt in a corresponding organ. The pain may be due to congestion in the area, a lack of energy balance, crystal deposits on the nerve endings, past injuries, or a normal reflex response. As the treatment progresses tenderness dissipates, the balance is restored in the corresponding area

Depending on the response of the patient after treatment, a course of 8 to 12 treatments is recommended, done either once or twice a week.


Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine bodywork technique. This ancient Chinese healing technique is like acupuncture. The theory behind acupressure and acupuncture is that the body has numerous channels or pathways of invisible energy throughout the body.

These pathways, called meridians, have acupuncture points along these channels. With acupuncture needles are used, and in acupressure fingers or knuckles are used to massage the acupuncture points.

Acupressure improves the circulation of blood and lymph fluids throughout the body. The blood brings nutrients to all areas of the body and the lymph fluids remove the accumulated toxins and wastes. By applying deep, steady pressure to the appropriate acupuncture points, helps to alleviate pain anywhere in the body.


Iridology is a diagnostic, non-invasive tool which provides us with an overview of the individual constitution of the patient as well as their genetic inherited constitution.

The iris has landmark signs which identify weaknesses in the body systems of the individual.

The iris structure, colour and neurological changes are reflected in the iris since it is directly connected to the brain via the nervous system. Making it possible for the practitioner to interpret weaknesses in organ systems, inflammation, and poor waste elimination. The eye is like a fingerprint; unique to each individual it serves as a blueprint of our inherited physical state.

Iris analysis does not reflect disease, but the practitioner can recognize physiological changes or weaknesses well before manifestation of disease.
