Service Description

Acupuncture taught using Traditional Chinese medicine is a holistic approach and focuses on diagnosing and treating the root cause of the condition not just the individual symptoms. This means it is specific to each patient and if 2 people presented with the same symptom eg headache or joint pains, they would likely have different treatments/points used. Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body's qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of qi to restore balance and trigger the body's natural healing response. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine pre-sterilised single use needles to stimulate specific points on the body. A treatment may also involve other therapies if indicated for that treatment prescription eg Moxibustion, Heat lamp or Cupping. Moxibustion: A herb called moxa used to warm region or acupuncture points to stimulate circulation and increase energy, especially good for chronic conditions Cupping: Warm suction to improve circulation, stimulate digestive system, help to activate lymphatic system and to release toxins
