Karen Adès - Acupuncture + Chinese Medicine



How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture improves the body's physiological function and promotes healing by stimulating specific anatomic sites--commonly referred to as acupuncture points. Each acupoint has a number of physiological actions. During an acupuncture treatment, Karen will carefully select a combinations of acupoints that are gently stimulated to address the specific symptoms as well as the underlying causes of your health condition.

Western scientific research shows that acupuncture is able to:


  • positively alter neuro-endocrine factors

  • increase the production of natural, endogenous opioids

  • modulate abnormal immune responses

  • stimulate physiological function via sympathetic nerve reflex responses

  • increase blood flow to targeted areas

Benefits of acupuncture:


  • provides drug-free pain relief

  • effectively treats a wide range of acute and chronic ailments

  • treats the symptoms as well as the underlying cause of disease

  • provides highly individualised approach to treatment

  • assists in the prevention of illness & promotes good health


Moxibustion (also known as Moxa) is a traditional Chinese heat treatment that is frequently used to augment Acupuncture. It is a very relaxing therapy. Moxa stimulates, warms and invigorates physiological processes and can be used to treat conditions caused or aggravated by cold. In some situations, a take-home moxa treatment plan may be prescribed to support your treatment.
