Acupuncture for acute and chronic pain

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese (Qi) energy flow theories, also called Chi and Xue (blood) by different pathways or body-spreading meridians. It enhances and boosts Qi's free flow and thus controls the body's harmonious energy balance. This therefore alleviates stress and improves nutrition.

Chinese medicine treatment may be able to assist with:

  • Pain relief and management
  • Stress
  • Chronic pain related to depression by managing the underlying chronic pain.


During the procedure you have to explore the places where the needles are inserted, and are told to lie down, face-up, face-down or side-by-side. We use sterile standardised needles for our acupuncturist and if the needle hits the right length, there should be a deep feeling of confusion or congestion around it. Upon application, needles are sometimes warmed or electrically stimulated. The needles remain there several minutes after they are inserted.

Normally, acupuncture is required weekly or fortnightly and can be up to 12 courses which can last about 30 minutes. The evaluation and assessment of the patient's condition will be part of a visit to an acupuncturist.

The number of treatments required for recovery varies with the length of the problem, its frequency and nature.
