a safe and natural way to improve your health and vitality
Acupuncture is part of the Traditional Chinese Medicinal (TCM) system, which has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness for more than 3,000 years. It is accepted around the globe as a safe, effective and holistic alternative or complement to modern conventional medicine.
Acupuncture points are specific locations on the body which lie on the meridians or channels. These channels form an intricate network and are responsible for transporting Blood, Body fluids and Qi (energy or life force) throughout the whole body. The slightest physical, mental or emotional imbalance may cause blockages along the meridians which in-turn inhibits the smooth circulation of Qi and Blood. Fine, sterile, disposable Acupuncture needles can be inserted into few of the many hundreds of acupuncture points to stimulate and facilitate the flow of Qi assisting to restore balance and harmony to the individual.
On your initial consultation information will be gathered about all aspects of your health. From there we will discuss the course of treatment and decide what approach to take. Sessions may include the use of acupuncture, moxibustion, gua sha, cupping, kineso tape, diet and lifestyle advice.
Each person is treated for his or her individual imbalance and treatment is personalised regardless of the disease or conventional medical diagnosis.
Some of the more common uses for acupuncture include:
- Acute & chronic pain conditions such as; neck, shoulder, back, knee, and ankle injuries, sciatica, and arthritis
- Men’s & women’s fertility, pregnancy, and labour induction
- Stress, anxiety, and depression
- Headaches and migraines
- Addictions such as; smoking, eating disorders, drugs and alcohol
- Constitutional facial acupuncture
Natural healing that feels good
Acupuncture promotes a deep state of relaxation and stimulates your body to heal itself. It balances hormones and blood flow, removes blockage and pain and brings vitality to tired, weak areas of the body.
Chinese herbal medicine uses powerful plant and mineral products to stimulate positive changes – such as detoxifying congestion, replenishing dryness and rebuilding weakened body structures.
Acupuncture prompts the body to recover from the negative effects of stress. It makes people feel light, calm and relaxed. Try it for yourself and enjoy the benefits!
