Acupuncture is an ancient technique of inserting very fine sterile needles into specific points on the body at various depths to achieve balance.

Traditionally, acupuncture works by moving Qi (energy) along channels – also known as meridians - throughout the body. If Qi flow becomes depleted, stagnant or blocked, dis-ease can occur. By stimulating particular points on these meridians, we are able to guide the body’s self-healing mechanisms naturally and correct any biochemical imbalances, thus resolving symptoms and reversing disease.

What makes acupuncture powerful is the ability to heal from the root rather than masking the symptoms. Some patients find that they come in for one complaint and another ailment will also heal; this is because in Chinese medicine a diagnosis has multiple symptoms that may appear unrelated but in actuality, they are interconnected.

  • Strengthens the immune system - increases blood flow and antibody levels.
  • Stimulates endorphins - your natural pain killers.
  • Affects neurotransmitters - helps the body to cope with stress, depression, and mood disorders.
