What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine originated in China thousands of years ago and is part of an integrated system of health care known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Acupuncture involves the painless insertion of very fine, sterile, single-use needles which stimulate specific reactive points on the body in order to encourage the body’s own healing response and helps restore its natural balance.
How does it work?
In medical terms, acupuncture is thought to work by blocking pain receptors, stimulating the nervous system and the production of endorphins and promoting blood circulation.
Why choose Acupuncture?
Acupuncture’s popularity in the Western World has increased dramatically in the past two decades. Numerous reputable, mainstream scientific studies have proven its effectiveness in treating many health conditions ranging from the prevention and treatment of diseases to relieving pain.
Common complaints treatable with acupuncture:
