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 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). In Chinese Medicine these points are known as neural nodes or jie. Acupuncture heals the body by stimulating these nodes which affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
These nervous system signals then trigger the brain to release the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins. These chemicals have pain-relieving properties and improve immune function.
Acupuncture can support the management of many conditions including –
- Digestive conditions
- Emotional disorders
- Fertility & IVF Support
- General well-being
- Headaches and migraine
- Oncology symptom management
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Recovery from injury
- Respiratory Disorders
- Stress and anxiety
The number of treatments depend on the condition being treated but typically the effects are cumulative.
Your Acupuncture session may also include moxibustion, Gua Sha, cupping or Cranio-sacral Therapy.
