Acupuncture, now the largest drug-free healthcare therapy in the world is used by people of all ages for a wide range of disorders.

Qi (pronounced chee) or life force runs through our body in a network of channels or meridians. When the Qi doesn’t flow freely, it can cause imbalances, blockages or stagnation in the body leading to illness. With Acupuncture, Qi can circulate freely throughout the body enhancing the nourishment of cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This work will allow harmony and balance to be restored, eliminate pain as well as enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.

As a practitioner I am trained to assess all aspects of the person coming for a treatment including; presenting signs and symptoms, medical history, complexion, general constitution and the pulse and tongue to clearly identify the pattern of imbalance.

On your first visit a detailed and confidential assessment is carried out. The aim of this assessment is to find the root cause of imbalance in order to determine an appropriate treatment plan for you.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an oriental healthcare system that originated in China over more than 3,000 years ago. It has spread internationally due to its proven effectiveness and is now the largest drug-free healthcare therapy in the world used by people of all ages for a wide range of disorders.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory states that when healthy, our Qi (pronounced chee) or life force runs through our body in a network of channels or meridians. Perfect health is a free flow of Qi. When the Qi doesn’t flow freely, it can cause imbalances, blockages or stagnation in the body leading to illness. Imbalances to Qi can result from disease, injuries, stress, overwork, poor diet, weather, environmental conditions and other lifestyle factors. As a practitioner I am trained to assess all aspects of the person coming for a treatment including; presenting signs and symptoms, medical history, complexion, general constitution and the pulse and tongue to clearly identify the pattern of imbalance. On your first visit a detailed and confidential assessment is carried out. The aim of this assessment is to find the root cause of imbalance in order to determine an appropriate treatment plan for you.

How does it work?

Acupuncture involves the use of single-use sterile needles about the width of a human hair. These needles are inserted into specific body points (Acupuncture points) to help unblock obstruction or strengthen the body in order to balance Qi where it has become unbalanced. The Qi can then circulate freely throughout the body enhancing the nourishment of cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This work will allow harmony and balance to be restored, eliminate pain as well as enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.

 

Some people experience a tingling or dull sensation around the needle and most find it a deeply relaxing experience. Other TCM treatments, which may be used in conjunction with acupuncture in a session, include cupping (suction cups), moxibustion (heat), gua sha, massage, lifestyle advice and therapeutic exercises.
