Acupuncture is the painless insertion of fine needles on acupuncture meridian points. It is based in ancient Chinese Medicine and offers a completely holistic approach to your physical, mental, and emotional health.
The ancient healing art of acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been practiced in China and the Far East for thousands of years. It is a natural, safe, and effective form of healthcare, used to alleviate and help prevent a wide range of conditions, in people of all ages and works by stimulating the body’s healing responses or immune system.
The needles used in acupuncture are so fine that most people don’t often feel them being inserted. It is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache as the acupuncturist adjusts the needle to direct qi.
Many people feel deeply relaxed during the treatment
Acupuncture aims to restore the flow of vital energy and thereby promotes healing and revitalisation in the body. This facilitates and supports the body's innate ability to heal itself and to maintain optimal levels of wellbeing.
In recent years, the effects of acupuncture treatment have been systematically refined and verified by modern scientific research methods.
Your integrated TCM and Five Element Acupuncture practitioner will take a very detailed health history, and, in each session, you will get an opportunity to talk about your emotions and life stresses. You will feel deeply listened to, heard, and fully assessed. Your practitioner will take your pulse, look at your tongue, assess your tone of voice and thereafter build a treatment plan created to your unique constitution.
Although a single treatment can have a very positive effect a course of Acupuncture treatment is recommended to get the most benefit over a period of time.
