Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality of Chinese Medicine that has been used successfully all over the world for thousands of years. It is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system.

How Does it Work

Acupuncture balances the flow of energy – known as Qi (chee) – which flows through meridians in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians we can create a change in the flow of Qi.

What to Expect

Where the acupuncture needle has been inserted, you may experience a vague numbness, heaviness, tingling or dull ache. Sometimes people experience a sensation of energy spreading and moving around the needle. This is called the ” Qi sensation”. All these reactions are good and a sign that the treatment is working. After treatment, you may feel energized or may experience a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
