Acupuncture is an ancient medical therapy used by the Chinese for thousands of years. It is used to treat a wide range of health conditions from chronic pain, arthritis, muscle aches and strains, neurological issues, gynaecological issues, respiratory issues, digestion issues to skin problems.

For those new to acupuncture having acupuncture may be scary. However acupuncture needles are sterile, single use, very thin and smooth. Most people will find that acupuncture is not as painful as imagined. Some people might feel a slight prick when the needles go in, others dont feel anything at all. Many people report a very relaxed feeling as the needles get to work releasing endorphins and relieving pain, regulating hormones, stimulating internal organs and releasing tight muscles.

If you are very fearful of needles please tell the Tseu and acupressure seeds may be used instead of needles.

We offer the following types of Acupuncture, the selection of therapies will be discussed with you during your consultation:

Body Acupuncture

Body acupuncture uses acupuncture points on different parts of the body (mainly arms and legs, back and abdomen) to correct imbalances and improve bodily functions. This style of acupuncture can treat a wide variety of conditions and because of this it is the main style of acupuncture used, and most people will receive this type of acupuncture.

Facial/Cosmetic Acupuncture

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture uses very fine, smooth and small needles on the face to help lift and loosen muscles, which may diminish the look of wrinkles. Apart from improving the look of aging skin, facial acupuncture can also assist in skin conditions like acne, scarring, pigmentation, and dark eye circles.

The facial treatment is combined with a facial massage and body acupuncture to address any internal disharmonies so you get an external and internal treatment in one session!

The length of treatment varies with the condition of your skin, for people with only fine lines 3-5 treatments is sufficient. For those with deeper line and/or scarring a series of 15 weekly sessions is required to achieve optimal results, a maintenance regime will then follow with treatments spaced every 2-6 months.

Scalp Acupuncture

Scalp Acupuncture uses acupuncture needles on the scalp to stimulate neural pathways and improve body movement, reduce pain, improve tingling and numbness and regulate the hormones. Scalp acupuncture may improve the following conditions:

  • Paralysis
  • Bells Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Chronic Pain
  • Sensory difficulties
  • Reproductive disorders
  • Downs Syndrome

You might feel uncomfortable having your scalp needled, however the scalp is one of the safest area for needling as your brain is protected by your skull, so there is very little risk involved in needling the scalp.

Ear Acupuncture/seeds

The ear is seen as a microsystem for the whole body. Different points on the ear can be used to stimulate different areas of the body and treat different conditions. Ear acupuncture can be used alone or with body acupuncture, the practitioner may also decide to use some ear seeds on the outer ear and leave them in for a few days to prolong its effectiveness.

Electrode Acupuncture

Electrode acupuncture uses electrodes to stimulate the needles, it is very good for painful conditions like fibromyalgia, back pain, headaches, sciatica, and sport injuries. It may also be effective in regulating the menstrual cycle and stimulating ovulation in women with PCOS.

Japanese style Acupuncture

Japanese style acupuncture is a collection of different acupuncture styles invented by Japanese practitioners. Japanese acupuncture uses very fine and super smooth needles with very shallow insertion so most of the time it is pain free. This style of acupuncture may be incorporated into your treatments if required.
