Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine originated in China, where it has been practiced for thousands of years.
Classical Acupuncture is the insertion of needles along the meridians, or energetic pathways, located at various points on the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) tends to focus more on the physical body, its presenting symptoms and their underlying causes, using a diagnostic pattern to identify any yin-yang and Qi imbalances. TCM is the most commonly practiced style of acupuncture in the present day.
Fine, stainless-steel needles are inserted into specific points on the body to assist in pain relief, healing and general well-being. Needles are pre-sterilized, disposable and for single use. A number of needles may be used at each treatment and these are typically left in place for up to 30 minutes before being removed, depending on the response required. A needle is manipulated until it connects with a person’s Qi (energy or life force) which may be felt as tingling, heaviness, warmth, numbness or a deep ache sensation, either at the point or along the channel.
Alongside acupuncture, other techniques may be employed such as electroacupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion and cupping.
Many of our clients had received great results from acupuncture treatments, as this treatment no longer serves as alternating treatment to western medicine.
