Kim Mendez, based at Pineapple Dance Studios

Kim has been practising at Pineapple Dance Studios since 1990, and over the last 30 years has treated patients; using Remedial Massage, Reflexology and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Kim’s early career started as a professional ballet dancer performing in UK ballet companies, London West End shows and Royal Opera Ballet, which led to an interest and later study of therapies in assisting dancers to maintain all round health, i.e. posture, prevention of injuries, good diet and optimum energy.

Kim started by treating professional dancers, musicians, and actors, but over the years practising and through word of mouth, her clientele has extended to include people from other professional bodies and the general public.

Kim’s interest is not only joint pain, muscle spasm, and pulled tendons, but she also enjoys ensuring that internal health is also looked after. Kim’s dietary and lifestyle advice is greatly appreciated by her clientele.


Acupuncture is as extremely effective treatment for joint pain, sciatica, headaches, gastric pain – in fact – pain caused by many different conditions. The needles are placed in Acupuncture points along a network of Meridian lines to balance and harmonise the body.

Manifestations of ill health arise through an imbalance of these channels. Diagnosis comes about through observation of the tongue, feeling the pulse, and careful questioning.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

With the use of Gold needles placed gently in the face, stimulation is given to the collagen under the skin and wrinkles are relaxed. This treatment revitalises the face and gives a youthful expression.

Aromatherapy - Remedial Massage

Kim is known for her treating chronic back pain with massage – combined with Acupuncture – to achieve the best effect, which together with the use of essential oils can also greatly reduce stress and everyday anxieties.


This is a therapy that works on the feet, using pressure points which can diagnose a patient’s health. Through these reflexes, pain and congestion can be relieved in the various organs of the body, particularly the glandular and endocrine systems.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

This can work with Acupuncture to balance the patient’s internal health, i.e. painful headaches, gastric reflux, painful periods, dizziness, etc.
