Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.

As a natural form of healing, acupuncture has the following benefits:

  • Provides drug-free pain relief
  • Effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments
  • Treats the underlying cause of disease and illness as well as the symptoms
  • Provides a holistic approach to the treatment of disease and illness, treating the body, mind and spirit.
  • Assists in the prevention of disease and the maintenance of general well-being

 

Acupuncture is a safe and gentle treatment, which is often accompanied by feelings of deep relaxation and well-being.

The initial consultation and treatment generally takes one hour and subsequent treatments can take anything from 20 – 50 minutes depending on the condition being treated.
