Acupuncture Therapy


Acupuncture Therapy is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. Acupuncture involves the insertion of painless, single use, sterile and disposable very fine needles to the acupuncture points of the body to achieve a therapeutic effect. In TCM the body, mind and spirit are viewed as a whole. Symptoms like pain, fatigue or anxiety are seen as an imbalance in the flow of Qi (energy) in the body. 

Health is a state of harmonious balance of body, mind and spirit. Daily exercise, appropriate diet, spiritual practice and a positive outlook on life are important aspects to maintain good and balanced health. The body naturally tends and adjusts continually towards balance but with repeated stress, trauma, lack of exercise or poor lifestyle habits, it is difficult to maintain that balance and often imbalance occurs and symptoms arise, come and go, and can slowly get worse if not treated.

The aim of the Acupuncture treatment is to re-balance the body to promote harmonious functioning between body, mind and spirit in order to restore, promote and regulate the free flow of Qi.

In Western Medicine, Acupuncture is believed to have a positive effect on the nervous system promoting restful, healing effects on the parasympathetic nervous system. 

Acupuncture works by:

  • Stimulating the release of pain relieving endorphins
  • Influencing the release of neurotransmitters, substances that transmit nerve impulses to the brain
  • Influencing the autonomic nervous system
  • Stimulating circulation
  • Influencing the electrical currents of the body

Acupuncture Therapy is used to encourage natural healing, improve energy levels and mood, relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery.
